LOUDSPEAKERS: What are the advantages of low-sensitivity ones?

  “Scuse my ignorance, but given the fact that Hi Fi is all about gains and losses in an endless spiral of compromises and ‘more of this means less of that’, can the Wam-gurus please explain what the benefits of low-sensitivity speakers are over high-sensitivity models? The benefits of high sensitivity over low is obvious, […]

SPICA: The TC-50 speakers test review

Howard Popeck writes: As it my policy re these mini-reviews, I only write as a consequence of direct personal experience of the product.I sold these during my time at Subjective Audio in the 1980s. The demonstrations followed a fairly predictable pattern. Initially the potential customer would say that (a) the cabinets looked odd and/or unusual […]

Electronics aren’t immune either!

There are many multi-driver speakers, but few that go floor to ceiling like the IRSV. Floor to ceiling multi-driver speakers are called a Line Source.

I could so easily have popped into Sevenoaks or the Classifieds and put together a middle of the range system but just […]
