GOODMANS: The Magisters … “It would be good to hear from current and past owners about their experiences with them”

I thought it might be an idea to start a thread about the Magisters after one or two posts in Private Exhibitions. It would be good to hear from current and past owners about their experiences with them. They must be one of the more awkward speakers to accommodate these days( if you have a […]

TANNOY: Glenair 15″ or Tannoy Turnberry SE (Prestige) and why?

 Tannoy Glenair 15″ or Tannoy Turnberry SE (Prestige) and why? Recently heard the DC10a’s and a while back had the pleasure of hearing some 15″ monitor golds in York cabs. The DC10a’s I wouldn’t give tuppence for…absolutely dreadful; the old timers were wonderful in a warm and cuddly fashion. The only one’s I haven’t heard […]

IMPULSE: Fine-tuning an already competent system using their H2 speakers

A member asks … I am a long standing regular reader and would very much appreciate some help in fine tuning my system. I am not sure whether this level of system detail is a help or a hindrance for you, but here goes. My front ends are: Vinyl – Acoustic Signature Challenger, OL Silver […]

TANGENT: RS4 speakers and the tricky question of appropriate resale pricing

Hi Howard. I own a pair of Tangent RS4 speakers. While searching the web for an approximate price I came across your review. I love these speakers and have owned them since I was in high school ( I graduated in 1980). I am 51 now and I am moving- downsizing. I recently sold my […]

HARBETH: An integrated amp for a 40.1 pair?

I’m considering simplifying my system (and banking some cash) by selling off my separates (Aesthetix Calypso pre & McIntosh MC 275 MK V) and replacing them with a solid state or hybrid integrated amp. I don’t want to spend over $2,500 and would love to find something for less if it performs well… maybe vintage? […]

JIM ROGERS: Revisiting the superb JR149s

I started my hi-fi journey with a pair of these and have been very interested to revisit them for quite a while – I remember loving them. I’ve been holding off for either a boxed pair or a pair locally and in as close to mint condition as possible as they are just something I’d […]

HARBETH: McIntosh MC 275 Mk IV or V with Harbeth M-40.1?

I’ve had my Plinius SA-102 for longer than any previous amp (almost 3 years) and have been very satisfied with it’s reliability, musicality and build quality, but I’m very intrigued with finally trying a classic tube amp. I listen to classical, jazz, vocals & acoustic rock at moderate volume levels, so I’m thinking the 75 […]

BOOTHROYD STUART MERIDIAN: Designs … the very rarest of the rare

Quite a few facts here that are unknown to many. Meridian 102. A concept with possibly only one prototype of a stand-alone phono stage and/or step-up. Never put into production. Meridian 101B with hard anodized finish over the raw aluminium. An experiment to test surface-finish durability. It was indeed resistant to even a heavy set […]

MERIDIAN: Linn Isobaric PMS intervention

3 pairs of 105 power amps = 3 monos per channel. Crossover-less. An outstanding concept of having the frequency response of each pair matched to the characteristics of each pair of drivers with the upper frequency response very steeply rolled off with the lower response of the next pair taking over where the lower pair […]
