Re: Fane 12-250TC Retro Speaker.

I think doing things in front of a speaker with passive components is an under-researched area of audio, and any contribution is very worthwhile. If you think of how you might be able to kill some high frequency break-up modes around the edge of light-coned drivers, there must be ways of applying a...

Re: Fane 12-250TC Retro Speaker.

Also IMV, there’s little point in eq’ ing the hell out of single drivers with DSP; been there, done that, and though I got a perfect measured response in-room, half the music had vanished.

Re: Fully balanced amplification system?

I had a SET in my system once and like all the expectations it had a wonderful detail mid-range with instruments and voices floating in the air but didn’t really have low end control. I listen to a wide variety of music including big orchestras which means that bottom end detail and drive are essen...

Re: Owston 2019 - Listening Impressions

Steve's speakers seemed to do quite well. Perhaps a touch lean on the bass in that room, but I'd expect that to fill out closer to a wall. I think that's a complement Chris, cheers I can understand you saying that, but I do wonder if you are describing the difference between ported (reflex) and my ...

Re: When is a pie not a pie?

Hmmmm... Pies are defined by their crusts. A filled pie (also single-crust or bottom-crust), has pastry lining the baking dish, and the filling is placed on top of the pastry but left open. A top-crust pie has the filling in the bottom of the dish and is covered with a pastry or other covering befor...
