How did you find them compared to the Special Forty? I've heard the 'Forty' and I used to own the 20th Anniversary 'The One" monitor from Totem. Both are great speakers. The Special Forty are well worth the extra money. They aren't immediately exciting like the Signature One but they have grea...

My friend brought over his Signature Ones twice in the last few weeks for comparisons with my other speakers and I'm still undecided. He left them overnight so I was able to get some quality listening done but more time is needed. To my ears they sound like forests with more speed and less bass so ...

Congrats on the new speakah.

I heard 'em at Liquid Sound in Vancouver, and was very impressed. One of the absolute best "all-rounders" I've heard – for my taste, anyway. It is indeed nice that they're not insanely expensive.

Follow up on the Terminator.... Approximately 10 days of running-in for 24 hours non stop have significant improvement on the sound. This DAC is so smooth and transparent that you totally forgot about the equipment and just enjoy the music. Although it is a very well balanced DAC, certain things it...

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.
