  1. Substitute amp, same sound

    Whilst my Quad 34 was away being repaired, I used an Arcam Alpha 3 amplifier with my P3ESRs. Frankly, I think it sounded superb with the little Harbeths.
  2. Grumbling old men

    Mine's a pint of Old Hooky, ( from Hook Norton brewery in Oxfordshire ) which goes down well when we three 'Audio Guys' meet in the pub.
    One Landlord called likened us to ' Those three from Last...
  3. 'Professional' compression?

    I have never tried any data-reduced replay systems such as iPods, but I do have a Tascam MD-350 Minidisc recorder.
    Making recordings from my tuner, I am surprised how good the reproduction is.

    Q303

    No, of course not.
    I run my P3ESRs from a Quad 303.

    Q303 power

    I was under the impression that the Quad 303 was rated at 45 watts per channel, into 15 ohms, to match the Quad electrostatic loudspeakers.

    Done with electronics

    Now I'm in my sixties I am not going to purchase another set of electronics to play the music I like. My LPs, CDs, cassettes and minidiscs hold the performances I love, and I shall continue to use...
  7. Open stands

    I use a pair of open stands designed for the LS3/5a with my P3ESRs. They are perfect for the task.

    I have a spare pair if you're interested .

    Thanks. M G. Miles.

    A lot of fun

    The little 'LS3/5a type' speakers are now finished. The results are better than I expected, those well-known characteristics of the famous BBC loudspeakers are there.

    The P3ESRs are superior, but...
  9. Surely not?

    Wasn't Preston the robotic dog in an episode of 'Wallace and Gromit' ?

    Not the same character, surely...?
  10. Sticky: Some folks don't

    Some audio manufacturers, such as Naim, appeared to have made a good living out of selling amplifiers without tone controls.

    This is, perhaps, because Naim amplifiers are often part of a complete...
  11. Invaluable tone adjustment

    I run a pair of P3ESRs from a Quad 34/303 amplifier and find the adjustment provided by the 34 invaluable. Often a little bass cut on some recordings is required, plus subtle use of the tilt control...
  12. Enough curry!

    Isn't it time we got back to English and its decline / change (!) instead of discussions about curries and Indian music, etc.
  13. Pet hate # 1

    One of my pet hates in pronunciation is the way the word 'been' is pronounced 'bin'. Back in the sixties ( OK, a long time ago...) we were taught to use the two words in their correct context.

  14. Actives

    A good friend, an audio professional, uses active ( Meridian ) speakers for his domestic listening. He swears by active as the best way, given his work in studios and PA work. Driven by prof....
  15. Good Vibrations

    Listening to the Beach Boys' record 'Good Vibrations' whilst sitting under a large cardboard box. A loudspeaker was fitted to the top of said box. My twin brother operated the record player.

  16. Quad, ARCAM ... difference?

    When it comes to amplifiers and the P3ESRs I was without my Quad 34/303 and I pressed an original Arcam Alpha into service.

    To be honest I couldn't tell any difference...

  17. My superb P3ESR ... and Nat King Cole

    My favourite music since buying my 'ESRs late last year has been 'The Best of Nat King Cole'.

    That superb voice sounds very good on my old HL Monitors, but through the 'little wonders' it is just...

    Puff

    Ah, 'advertising puff'.

    Cables - all in the mind

    I use the above QED cable on my larger Harbeths and some transparent, similar looking cable on my 'ESRs.

    I truly cannot tell the difference...

  21. Definite coloration

    As I have a pair of early HL Monitors, serial numbers 228 A & B, perhaps I can add something to this ongoing thread.

    Recent experience, both operating and listening, to PA systems may be helpful here....
