Has anyone heard the Neat Ultimatum XLS'? I wonder how they'd compare to the likes of Dynaudio, or other models mentioned in this thread.

You could have saved me a first negative feedback :lol: Have you listened to the KEF R300? I heard them on entry level Cambridge gear and I thought they were very accomplished for the price point. I'd like to hear them on a better setup. If ever you pass through the interior feel free to drop me a ...

Thanks for sharing your initial impressions of the Special Forty, James. At a rough glance, would you say it sits somewhere between the Focal sound, and the pre-Element Totem upper-end stuff? I used to have the 20th anniversary 'The One' model from Totem, and it did a lot of things very well. I only...

Well, my point was I will not be using any tubes. So I'm not interested in reading post after post on some guy's impression of a red RCA tube. I want to hear about the sound qualities of the jfet mode, that's all I'm interested in, I'll probably have to buy one to find out! I totally hear where you...

I'd like to hear their (his) Impact Monitor. That's good to know that you're happy with your Pendragons.

I wonder if there's any more news about these Signature Ones.

Those Audiovectors James mentioned look intriguing. I recently discovered Funk Audio's 6.1P. Also, Dynaudio's Special Forty look interesting as well. So many choices/compromises.

Well Schiit, I just ordered a Freya and Yggdrasil today. Totally couldn't really afford to buy them right now, but very much excited to try them both out. Congratulations!!! ...how I wish you were located in Edmonton haha! :D Haha, you and me both. Vancouver is the most overrated, insular, expensiv...

On SBAF and Head-Fi, Schiit gets hyped like it's the second coming of Christ. Don't get me wrong, I have two pieces of their higher-end headphone pieces (Gungir Multi-Bit DAC and Mjolnir 2) that I enjoy and quite intrigued by their 2.0 gear coming up - especially their power amp which appears to be...

Thanks for your impressions, hawkeye. Someone ought to do a shootout between the Freya and some high end (expensive) preamps. I'd like to eventually do just that. In the meantime, most of what I've read on Head-Fi or Superbestaudiofriends involves individuals discussing how great it is on paper, how...

It'd be nice to have the chance to see (hear): My future standmounts, Focal's Diablo Utopias, but also Totem's latest offerings; the McIntosh MC152 (or 301s); and Rega's RP6 or 8. And of course, marvel at any other toys. I promise to try my hardest not to drool too much.

Aloha! I'm in the process of slowly putting together what will be by far my best system to date. I already have an Ayre K-3x preamp, a McIntosh MC122 (though I may upgrade to something like a V-5xe or a Cary power amp), and Totem The One monitors. I generally prefer a rather neutral (if slightly war...
