Okay I have just felt compelled to write something else. Please bear in mind that I am relatively new to hi fi and only have a low end system - azur 540a and MS 902i's.
I've just put a selection of classical tracks on ranging from classical guitar solo to chamber to symphony etc - oh my god - i have never heard anything like it - absolutely outrageously good - the clarity and detail and atmosphere almost brought a tear to my eye !
Not only could I hear the finger touching the strings but also I could hear the guy who was playing, quietly breathing in the background. Beautiful. I could also hear the orchestra WAITING to play... I am no classical fan particularly but it sounded amazing.
Next I put Material Girl on from Madonna's Immaculate collection and cranked up the volume - I could not help but grin - the base line that punched out was awesome, simply awesome. Thumping into the air with precision and depth. I almost laughed.
It has literally lifted my system to a whole new level - which has now costed me the princely sum of £700 including speakers stands and cable, and interconnects! Surely sound this good should cost more!? and who said I'd be ok listening through my ipod dock??
To sumarize the beresford - it has shifted the clarity, detail, and dynamics of my system into a different world.
I have not heard anything this good - ever.
