Re: Is aktiv operation best in all respects (same quality amp)?

My experience : it depends on what kind of tweeter and amplifier you use , if its gonna sound better or worse with a resistance or not. You have to try and listen in every different setup. My experience with a resistance in front of a compression-driver made it sound worse than without. And the oppo...

Re: Measuring my speakers..... ugggh! Why did I ever do it?

Zee9- I can see that your measurements are made with the internal microphone in the iPad. It reads ”internal mic”. The iPad mic has a big treble drop over 10 kHz. Here is my own measurement with Linn akudorik exakt katalyst from 1 meter of distance, only one loudspeaker, using an external calibrated...

Re: Measuring my speakers..... ugggh! Why did I ever do it?

You have done the measurements wrong Im afraid. 1. Only measure one speaker at a time. If you measure two at the same time you get interference. 2. Measurements should be done about 1,5 meters from the speakers, the mic pointing to the tweeter. 3. The mic is functioning different than the way your e...

Re: Is aktiv operation best in all respects (same quality amp)?

Some tweeters can sound more musical when they are driven from a high impedance amplifier in active mode. That means, putting a resistor about 3,3 ohms in series with the + connection of the tweeter can bring musical benefits. The proof is in the listening. Ofcourse you have to compensate the gain s...

Re: Absolute Bargains!

The Jbl studio 530 outperfoms most standmount speakers. They are really good value bought second-hand.
I have not yet been able to compare this speaker with akurate 242, but its possibly that the jbl:s are better.

Squeezebox duet

From reliable sources there is a bargain to be made: Squeezbox Duet ! :!: With its Wolfson Dac and " tunedem" sound it is said to sound better/ on pair with the Linn Ikemi, if you use the analogue output on the Squeezebox duet. We have to wait some time to see if its all true- but it looks very inte...

The Audio Technica AT-95E is a great cartridge that is hardly beaten by devices ten times as expensive as this unit.
