    Default M40.1, music lover's speakers

    Hey David... Good to hear from you. I sold the SHL5 last year.

    You will be surprise how the M40.1 works well in my small room , no booming bass just perfect combination.

    I still keeping the Elipsa as well as audiophile speakers and the M40.1 as music lover's speakers.

    Come by when you get a chance

    Default The M40.1 path from SHL5

    Hi bluejazz,

    I sometimes wonder what will be the improvement with the M40.1 when you came from the SHL5. A path I was thinking of. Could you detail how does this upgrade improve your listening pleasure?

    Thank you,

    Sébastien

    Default M40.1 advantages ...

    Scale, bass weight and extension and increased power handling.

    Default Talking scale

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for your answer. Actually, I feel that the SHL5 reproduce the scale of instrument really well but I haven't heard the M40.1 yet.

    Sébastien,

    Just like hifi_dave said....better bottom end, Bigger scale and giving you a true Full range sounds. Tweeter works for high, Mid works for mid and 12" works for the bass so there are no collaboration here.

    When I had a SHL5 I was happy with Jazz and Vocal but not on Classical Music especially on big orchestra music.

    Also I am not big fan of the sub so I didnt go that route.

    if you can swing it do it ~! You won't look back anymore.

    Default Lovely setup

    Hi, Infobert,


    simply gorgeous.
    One hint: concealing the strips up to the TV would be nice.

    Regards,
    Peter

    Default Color appreciation and room treatment

    Hi Infobert,

    I really like them in rosewood. What are your room dimensions and which treatment do you plan to do?

    Default Some reflections

    Hi Sebastien,

    room dimensions are 4,5x9 meters and listening position is around 3,5m from the speakers. Next to concealing strips I still have some minor challenges with reflections/echoes as the room is "spartan" furnished. But at the end this is moaning on a very very high level...

    Why would you want to be cured?:-) I am very glad to be afflicted by the disease.

    Nice pic, nice set up, and looks like a great music collection, that you can look to expand with the money saved.

    Default New P3ESRs - instant upgrade

    DSCF0826.JPG

    Well, I've always said one day I'll upgrade my P3ES2s to ESRs and have finally done it! Here they are in cherry veneer. Apologies for the horrible TV dominating the room; it's the landlord's and is covering up a hole in the wall and a mess of cables, so it has to stay where it is.

    What a blow I have to report! The day my speakers I've been looking forward to all week is the day I go stone deaf in my good ear! (Nothing serious, just wax, but the treatment drops make things worse before the improvement).

    Nonetheless I couldn't resist a listen and in spite of everything the audio upgrade is instantly recognisable. A delight.

    Default Sudgen Masterclass with the Harbeth

    The good points are that it is very very clear....
    and the timbre is so spot on

    But i want to say a few words to the forum about the bass problems that some
    users are experiensing with the M40.1.
    I also had these problems ...

    Hi ANADA,

    1. why do you think it clips?
    Sugden SPA-4 delivers 50W@8Ohm, do you mean M40.1 sucks more than this?
    Because of source (or pre-amp) voltage output exceeds input sensitivity of the power amp?
    Sugden SPA-4 is not a "decent" amp?
    Should I need MPA-4 which delivers 160W for M40.1?

    2. What dou you mean by bass problem with Sugden-Harbeth match? Did you get excess (boomy) bass; or (thin) lack of bass?
    Which (room or amp or speaker) is the main problem?
