Anything 15" concentric "two way" from Altec or Tannoy. The older the better generally. Every single 3way 43xx or 44xx I've heard compared ends up being a box making noise with noted crossover effect and often too bright. Exception being the modern smoother LSR32 but still sounds cabe...

I see way more ridiculously over priced stuff that makes me shop on ebay 99% of the time for the same item than here. Just because someone puts something on Canuck does not mean it is worth more. That is the beef. Low ballers are everywhere so what and mostly things here are often overpriced in the ...

He sent them back to me saying a voice coil was lightly rubbing on the one on one side. When I sent them they were working fine. I figured I'd try to fix it as I had nothing to lose. It turned out to be some crud which I was able to rid of totally playing the unit upside down lightly pressing on the...

So I've read on the Harbeth website that their speakers require no break-in. However I found that the sound does change over time for new speakers, even if they're used. I have a theory that what we perceive as break-in in audio components is actually quite often our brains adapting to the sound ov...

José González, early 20s, average guitarist, at best, and not much of a singer…

Tim Hecker makes you want to top yourself? An odd reaction. Again, try listening to it a few times instead of dismissing it. Someone is telling you that it is a fact that it is brilliant music, to dismiss that is your loss.[/quote] No just simply want to kill myself. What is "to top yourself&qu...

Tim Hecker makes me want to commit suicide now.
