They look like winners! Hopefully a fellow Cammer will buy a pair and provide some feedback.

Here is the response. This confirms to me I would only be interested in the Bhava. There are certainly some true statements in the email but that's for a different thread. ---------------------------------- Hi James, There are several real manufacturers who use the Dayton cabinets (and other cabinet...

This thread is a perfect example of why CAM is a great site. After shared advice there is going to be a chance for you to hear a pair before commiting $$$.

I just had a fellow member leave my place after demoing Eton Arcosia mids for him and sharing hobby talk where we both learned new things.

$4K USD for that speaker with off the shelf components is crazy. I'm sure it sounds fine as that mid-woofer is a very nice sounding unit indeed, but there is a very healthy margin in there for what amounts to a pre-built speaker kit. I've emailed PranaFidelity with the details to get confirmation o...

If you want that intoxicating Tannoy sound stick to the Prestige line. With a budget up to 18k you won't have any issues finding something. Turnberry and Stirling would be an affordable entry point with the next logical step up being Kensington or similar. To echo electrafixion's comments going vint...

If a pair ever gets listed below market value in the future I suggest acquiring ProAc Response D18's. They are a really special smaller 2 way tower (probably my favorite for the price) and would be a clear upgrade over the Hawk and FB1i. Disregard if you are not looking for other recommendations.

So, a slightly laid back speaker with vinyl through a tube-based phono would be okay in your opinion? The 600i paired well with Audio Note AN-J/AN-E, Neat S3Xi, Audiovector S1 Avantgarde, ELAC FS 607, Martin Logan ESL 15A, Marten Miles 5, Spatial M3 Turbo and various Totem models. It did not pair v...

Excellent integrated. I've only had the pleasure of owning a 600i but the 700i I heard was powerful and lively, just be careful with pairing.

Adequate amplification will give you a more balanced speaker with the PMC FB1i's. I preferred the smaller GB1 to Hawks once I paired them with a Bryston 4B SST2 in the same room when I was working at an audio store. Frankly I've prefered every PMC to competitive Totem models. Don't expect all of the...

I don't see anything that puts them in the Tekton category by looks, design concept or sound but that's just me. MTM with offset tweeters are a long proven design that stellar companies like Living Voice and ProAc use in the many of their speakers. The Bhava looks more like a Wilson Cub II than any ...
