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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

HARBETH: M30.1 partnered with subwoofer – theoretical calculations

A member of the Harbeth user group writes: For anyone interested in partnering their Harbeth M30.1 with a subwoofer, I’ve done some theoretical design simulations to see what sort of combined response might be achieved. The M30.1 has a quoted –3 dB low-frequency cut-off point of 50 Hz. For the purposes of the simulations, I […]

HARBETH: Compact7s annoying freq spike?

“I’ve had these speakers for a few years now. Currently I am powering them with a vintage Mcintosh 2155 150 watt solid state amp. I’ve always wished they were a little quitter and like I said there’s a quality that hurts my ears. Besides that they sound very good. Articulate and smooth otherwise.  Has anyone […]

HARBETH: The Riddle and ….. the answer

I was wondering something… It’s like a riddle, so: Is there in Audio Industry a maker, any maker, who makes good things for almost 40 years, being absolutely credible within an international circle, that he always has spares in stock, who has materials and lifetime provisions for them, who has continuous contact with his worldwide […]
