HMM: Is it essential to replace speaker drive units in pairs when one is broken?

A member writes … Thanks to City Link I have a pair of Dynaudio 52SE’s with one broken drive unit in each, so one dead tweeter and one dead bass driver. The magnet has moved in the bass driver, twisting and jamming the cone fully back and the magnet has completely broken off on the […]

AUDIOPHILE HALL OF FAME: Candiates?

There are many great designers out there, and especially in the lore from the golden age, but I’m not to familiar with them. I thought it might be interesting to discuss some of the great designers for engineering skill and knowledge, business integrity, and ultimatley quality of their products. My short list a “hall of […]

BUT DID YOU? So, got what you bargained for did you?

Michael Vronsky writes: Did we in the high-end buyers arena get what we bargained for when we chose the lowest price over service and advice? Dealers have always discounted. It’s implicit in the descriptive word ‘dealers’ i.e. ‘to deal’ Perhaps ‘retailer’ might be more appropriate? Anyway – even famous dealers may be obliged to offer […]

AUDIO NATIONALISM: Are the English really the natural leaders when it comes to sound quality?

Michael Vronsky asks editor Neil McCauley: Neil –  is it jingoistic to believe that the English really are the natural leaders when it comes to sound quality? That would be a tough one because as an editor I can think of countries all over the world who give anyone a run for their money. I […]

ANYTHING BUT MUSIC: Why do some speakers sound like music while others do not?

  Michael Vronsky writes: Different isn’t automatically better I was trying to find the problem in a friend’s system. It didn’t sound as good as it should have for the money. So we did a lot of cable switching, speaker positioning, isolating this, isolating that – all to no avail. We certainly got different sounds, […]

BREAKING RANK: Who will be the first big maker to bypass the UK audio retailer network?

Michael Vronski … I don’t claim to be a futurologist. However sometimes it’s possible to read some signs and occasionally for a view of which way the commercial wind is blowing. And I mean the way that wind is blowing, but not necessarily the speed and strength of that wind.My belief is that with the […]

BI-WIRING: Ask our editor Neil McCauley

Hello Neil. Can you suggest a practical, intelligent and understandable explanation of the pros and cons of biwiring please? Thanks.  AK Happy to help you Mr.K. I sniffed about a bit and below, written by Paul McGowan is the best I have found so far. Just when you thought I had abandoned everything high-end and […]

SERIOUSLY: Speaker size should match the room

Paul McGowan writes …. This fact or fiction question is an interesting one because the notion of matching speaker size to room dimensions is so ingrained into our culture as to be taken for fact. But, some facts aren’t true no matter how much we want them to be. Here’s the deal. Any size loudspeaker […]

SPIKES vs. FOAM: Can foam padding isolate better than spikes?

“This may be quite crazy but I’ve set my Dynaudio C3 speaker stands down on a 1.5” thick sheet of soft foam padding instead of using spikes. Now the floor has almost no vibration. The sound is cleaner and more natural. I did the same with my subwoofer with the same results! Now I’m considering […]

SPEAKERS: They should disappear, which seems impossible. The drivers are pointing straight at us!

Paul McGowan writes ….. Much to my surprise this fact, along with another—the soundstage should come from behind the loudspeaker—continually baffles people. I am at the Japan Audio show today and watched as two setup guys had the right combination of disappearing source and rear presentation, only to change placement to pinpoint the source and […]

HIGH END GEAR: What do you consider to be high end vintage gear?

I’m changing this around a little. I’ve decided to leave out turntables because there are already a few good threads on them. I am also leaving out integrated amps because I don’t want to go down that road. If you want to post integrated amps, please create a new thread. If you disagree with any […]
