Browse the content of the threads in new Window  Thread: My Audio Philosophy in Playback Listening  95 Replies 
Musicians do respond differently to music than non-musicians. Brain scans have shown that different parts of the brain light up when their 'genre' of music or something close to it, or otherwise something easily comprehensible, is played to them,...

Browse the content of the threads in new Window  Thread: My Audio Philosophy in Playback Listening  95 Replies 
With regards to the links, as it happens, I totally agree that 15in Tannoy Reds struggle to handle complex music. The crossover is too simplistic and the cones too hard to control with a low power amp. Reds can be lovely in a simple vintage system bu...

Browse the content of the threads in new Window  Thread: My Audio Philosophy in Playback Listening  95 Replies 
I have to say I totally disagree with you on these numbers. Perhaps for some solid state designs (somehow subjectively solid state watts never seem to have as much grunt as valve ones), driving modern multiple-driver speakers where the crossover ...

Browse the content of the threads in new Window  Thread: My Audio Philosophy in Playback Listening  95 Replies 
The question I asked was how you arrived at 60w minimum for a 92db speaker which sounded wrong to me and simply doesn’t fit my experience. What rule of thumb are you applying.  In any case an amplifier’s current delivery capability can have far more ...

Browse the content of the threads in new Window  Thread: My Audio Philosophy in Playback Listening  95 Replies 
How do you make that calculation? Seems to be way out of line with my experience. I have been very happy with 35w maximum of Radford STA25 push-pull valve power, and my current 20w single ended works just fine. I'm listening to m...

Browse the content of the threads in new Window  Thread: My Audio Philosophy in Playback Listening  95 Replies 
Thanks Amir. My Tannoys are 92db, and measure reasonably flat, but don't usually go well with single ended power amps as they need at least a moderate damping factor to control the large cone, otherwise the bass can be poorly defined (working bes...

Interesting post. Having heard in my system both a first generation Model 5 (which is what persuaded me to order the current model) and the L50, I do know what you mean about energy. It's partly dynamics, but also a great sense of musicality, of ...

Very interesting Amir. I am also waiting on a Model 5, to arrive in the UK. It was ordered some months ago but I ordered a balanced version (this one will be all-balanced - two balanced inputs and balanced output) and that's tak...

Fascinating info. My first post here though been a lurker for years. @Amir I assume the info you posted above about PSU changes come from Silvio?  It's quite fascinating so if there's any further info published I'd appreciate a link to it. ...
