  1. Sticky: My wooden ears?

    Well, I do hear at quite high levels sometimes, still never heard the clipping.

    In oposite I allways thought the music to stay quite pure and clear, even surpingly clear given the level.

    As to...
  2. Sticky: Undetectable clipping?

    @acroyear:
    Just had a look. I have Attenuators with -10dB.
    They do make a difference on the "turning the knob" vs "loudness of signal"-ratio for sure. But I never heard a problem (aka clipping)...
  3. Sticky: Music?

    Maybe rather commonly known bands/artists in the "audiophile" context:

  4. Sticky: Permanent attenuators

    I have had a Rothwell Attenuator for quite some time cause the Quad 44 is often said to clip rather early on its volume-range. Don't know if that is really the case but as it was so easy to be sure I...
  5. Have it all with SHL5?

    Nothing to do with the TL-issue, more sort of my thought about the inital theme, aka "is there a universal speaker"?

    I believe that if a speaker is able to faithfully reproduce natural,...

    Don't waste the effort

    You can use whatever you want between the speaker and the stool, won´t make a difference you can hear. So, anything that prevents stains or scratches on the speaker is fine. Even a layer of paper is...

    Why.... behind the speakers?

    May I ask why you made most efforts to tame the rooms acoustics on the least important area, behind the speakers (apart form the bass traps in the corners, which seem to be quite right)?

  10. Adequacy of power

    Among most Harbeth users in this group it is consensus (against the usual audiophile mainstream) that amplifiers *should* sound the same. Only necessity is enough power for the volume-level desired. ...
  11. Stands for under Eur. 100

    I bought some stands on german eBay (new!) for 50,- Euros (you could type BOXEN STANDFUSS SCHWARZ onto german eBay) an the ones with four columns are the ones.

    They send them to France for a...

    Mirroring

    If you use the google picture-search you will see that it seems they usually were mirrored.

    So your assumption, besides sounding logic, is not taking us nearer to the truth.

    Beyond reason

    That is really unusual.

    A person that knows it is all BS (or at least very very debatable) deliberately chasing for someone to take away his money!!?? You cannot argue with that.

  16. Should I?

    Very true.

    I am struggling a little with the invitation. I am a little shy in the end when it comes to visiting people whom I have only spoken to for some minutes (allthough they were incredibly...
  17. Mixing with real English speakers!

    I remember seeing a television programme with James May & Oz Clarke (in search of THE british drink), where they once sat down to eat a traditional english meal. It was a curry.

    Real music in the normal room

    Once again a very cosy looking home and a very practical aproach without the usual audiophile blabla of pushing speakers around a few millimetres and such.

    Music matters!

    Perfect execution of an idea

    @manfred:
    You are right. Sorry for capturing the thread with the digital-discussion.

    To stay with the real topic of this thread, I have to say that this Bel Canto-setup is also very much to my...

    Digital is digital

    Well, those who compared digital blind had problems in finding differences in any digital, may it be cheap or expensive at all.
    So I doubt that this is possible.

    Which could mean that you simply like the sound a tube-amp makes when its clipping. That is the opposite of everything hifi and true fidelity stands for, more exactly: it is a changed and degraded...

    The folly of small amps

    Over the years I went up with the amount of power in my amplification and can now say:
    If you believe the Leben or the Sugden are powerful enough you would be suprised how much you are missing.
