    Dope layer change?

    I wonder how Falcon Acoustics are achieving consistency with the new B110 they are producing ? The coating does look different from the examples show here.

    LS3/5a > P3 stands

    Re. stands for the P3ESRs, I had a pair of stands designed for the BBC LS3/5a which I had owned previously. They suit the 'ESRs perfectly, as the dimensions of the P3s are very close to the LS3/5a. ...

    To add to Alan's post, a personal experience. I owned BC1s for over 30 years and would agree, more or less, to what has been written. At low level, playing classical or folk music, the BC1 performed...

  22. 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.
