If you have the space and scratch get a full range speaker. Assuming you are talking about large speakers that go below 30Hz and not full range point source drivers.

James, have you A/B'ed any other cables on your speakers with the Anticables?

Cardas Clear Light and Audioquest Aspen. I won't derail the thread but long story short I'm still using the Anticable 3.1's.

Not sure where I fall in the argument. I've had five figure cable setups from Nordost, Van Den Hul and Audioquest in the last few years. I feel they work like tone controls more than anything. Right now I'm using a cheap pair of Anticables 3.1 speaker cables that are basically just 4 large solid cor...

I really hope the store doesn't just leave the speakers in a lineup like that while you are demoing. Reminds me of a Best Buy or something similar. That's the proletariat room, high roller rooms, across the hall. This isn't a monetary or class thing I'm asking if they just leave a speaker in the li...

Regardless of my feelings about the guy his emotions looked real to me. Just goes to show he can't even share words about a Canadian icon passing without someone getting p*ssed off.

I have some Compound 4s..older model floorstander's, quite nice, very detailed and great imaging..they are not too efficient and 4 ohms, not much info out there on them..I can say they sound their best with lots of power.

Nice find! They are pretty rare.

Back to Dynaudio, I am really curious about those 40s. Never heard a bad Dynaudio speaker but they don't engage like the better models from Neat, Kudos, Proac or Harbeth. I liked the Audiovectors when I heard them because they are fundamentally neutral sounding like Dynaudio but a bit more open up ...

Wow the Neat is actually quite large...

Using your Pass, which one had the best synergy?

The Neats create beautiful music paired with Pass Labs, very airy and rich sound. I've never heard them combined before. I can't speak on how other Neat models sound though.

Just adding this to the thread for size comparison between ELAC Uni-Fi UB5, Dynaudio Special Forty and Neat Momentum SX3i.

It is interesting that 1 member states the Sky tower requires at least 250 hours where the manufacture only claims 70 to 100. Totem is known for OEM drivers, I’d be curious to know if any other speaker using the same drivers, either tweeter or woofer, requires the same amount of break in. I had som...

More space? Hmm The room is like 14x24 with 12 foot ceiling and the sigs were anything but "flabby" lol. The Hawks are a bit "muddy" in comparison. You need space behind the speaker. The Hawks sound significantly better out at least 2-3 ft from rear and side walls/obstructions. ...

If you can't give the hawks more room don't bother. They need lots of space.

The MA Bronze 6 are decent for a budget speaker. I would have gladly taken a pair of Totem Hawks or Sky over the MA Silver 8's I was running in my bedroom. Maybe the Totem sound isn't for you. ProAc, Dynaudio, Neat and Audiovector should be looked at. . I don't think there is any Totem "sound&...
