    Audax spares

    I bought two replacement Audax tweeters for my HL Monitors from Falcon Acoustics, as one had gone down in output. They looked exactly the same as the old ones, and more importantly the speakers sound...

    The best ....

    I have just had someone call to collect a pair of speaker stands, and he sat and listened to Dvorak's 'New World symphony' on my P3ESRs.

    You know what I'm going to say... Yes, he said, "Those...

    I drive my P3ESRs with a Quad 34/303 amp. Whilst the 34 was away for repair I used an original Arcam Alpha amplifier. I could not tell any difference...

    AR t/t and QUAD with Harbeth

    I bought an AR XA turntable for 25. All it required was a belt, mat and some basic maintenance and lubrication. ( As a little 'extra' I did buy an AR badge for it )

    Going strong!

    I am 66 and I can see my P3ESRs lasting me the rest of my days. Then one of my sons can inherit them. As for my early HL1 Monitors, they're still going strong...

  8. 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.

  10. '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 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...
  14. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. Enough curry!

    Isn't it time we got back to English and its decline / change (!) instead of discussions about curries and Indian music, etc.
  19. 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.

  22. Quad, ARCAM ... difference?

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

  23. 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'.

    Puff

    Ah, 'advertising puff'.

    It appears in such magazines as Hi-Fi News. I used to buy HFN, but when recently I glanced at a copy in WH Smith's there appeared to be yet another 'Cable Test '.
