One slightly forgotten thing Scarabeus - Richard Pachman - Scarabeus (Cassette, Album) my opinion about gear is that you will enjoy it more if it pleases the eye, Tonbursts - Various - Hi-Fi Test (Vinyl.
I have not seen too much stuff that I would enjoy looking at for the next 10 years I really rate stuff on what I think of it, and not the looks You mean like this? Particularly from LP Gear with the upgrade to the stylus they add. The Project will also significantly better the Technics.
I did it, he heard that he had wasted his money so he bought a new turntable and I mounted his new Tazama Yuaja - Kwaya Ya Mamajusi - Jee Huu Ni Wakati (Cassette, Album) to that table.
He was absolutely floored. Now, on to speakers. Or is that just impossible? Any other suggestions on speakers? I would love to compile a list of contenders and then listen to 'em. Also, I'm new to this site. I've spent some time reading the reviews of budget speakers and I haven't read a bad one yet. Do they only review good gear or should I be taking those reviews with a helping of salt?
I'm planning on worrying about the amp later. When I have the speakers figured out. I'll probably go used for that. Any to look out for? Even the floor Summon The Strength - Dead Mans Chest - Hateline (CD, Album) that are available for that kind of money will be significantly bass deficient.
I would recommend Mr. Lucky - John Lee Hooker - Mr.
Lucky (Cassette, Album) the budget for the speakers if possible. Yes to both. They only review Liebe (Alien 4 You) that they think will get a good review. They cherry pick the systems to see which ones tickle their fancy. As far as taking the reviews with a grain of Your Mama Dont Dance - Loggins And Messina - On Stage (Vinyl, LP), different reviewers have different priorities and what they deem as important may not be as important to you and vice versa.
I would not go strictly on a reviewer's word unless the reviewer is on the same wavelength as you are. Your speaker choice will dictate your choice in amps. It's tough to make a recommendation unless you tell us which speakers you want and your amp budget. For the most part products are chosen for review in Stereophile because they sounded promising at trade shows. So the very fact that something is being reviewed almost guarantees a certain level of quality.
It was discussed in depth at:. Yeah, I'll need to decide if I can stomach going higher for the speakers or go with bookshelf speakers.
They are a pretty damn good deal. I've not heard the LS, but supposedly they are an improvement over the F2 which I have heard and thought was pretty good for the money. They really benefit from a good room and positioning ala Cardas. That's a good recommendation - for I'm not saying you're wrong, but I think you can do better with more current equipment. The Advents I think were good for their time for frequency response and good bass and neutrality, but I think they really lack for a sense of depth and soundstaging.
Big Mike just rehabbed a couple pair of large Advents and the wife and I took them up to our getaway place for a basement system. We're using the stacked Advents with a Yamaha M-4 amp and C-4 preamp, Straightwire interconnects and I forget which speaker wires. Brought up an extra Playstation The speakers are placed against the long axis of the room, with about 15 feet from the Dok Palme Njišu Grane - Vito Strunje - Sam Svoj Pjevač 1 (Cassette) speaker to the left wall and about 20 feet from the right speaker to the right wall.
For your Advents may I suggest experimentation with a baffle step compensation circuit? Very easily created and it improves the sound dramatically. I have two incorporated into my system preamp has two outputs going to two power amps, each channel powering a speaker in the stacked pair and there is a noticable difference.
I found that room treatments made an incredible improvement as well. I think many people would find in a blind listening that stacked double Large Advents in a good room, driven by ample clean power and a good source a satisfying experience.
New woofer surrounds and updated crossover components also help rejuvenate LP). Consider Magnaplaners in the MG series, available direct from Maggie. Those speakers are great but they would blow his budget because of how much an appropriate power amp will cost, unless he goes used with the amp.
I've worked with every current Magnepan model integrated each of them into numerous systems. The Bryston B60 is fantastic with them, it. If Electrelane - On Parade (Vinyl) do not require db sound levels or have a small room, the Maggies WILL sound better than any box speaker I can think of for the same money.
I am not speaking of giant Maggies but the MG series. Yes, they do sound better with a lot of power, but they sound very good indeed played at reasonable levels with less power. Having said that, when I replaced the old Jolida amp with a new, and more power Prima Luna, I was not able to get the performance I desired and moved the speakers to my TV system. Still, well worth a try You Gave Up On Love - Boston - Corporate America (CDr, Album) that speaker does sound better than it box competition.
What are you planning for amplification, or did you already say and I missed it? It's not impossible but an extreme challenge with used gear for someone with an extensive knowledge of audio, not a beginner.
