Thanks for doing that. If only you had any pre-Freedom Mission 75x speakers, you'd have done all the testing for me.
Don't take this as a criticism, but do you have any other speakers to test with? I only say this as the Freedoms are known to be less erm 'something' compared with the originals.
You live in (shhhh says AI), yes?

You live in Bournemouth, yes?
Don't tell them your name Pike!
If you would like to pass on details then do it in a private message....

Was this directed at me? I don't quite understand the question. I also have Quad standmounts which I briefly used with the amplifiers but my impressions where mostly when used with the Missions.

I am Dorset based.

Hi RoA

Next time I go down to my brother's caravan on the Isle of Purbeck, I could drop the Leema off for the weekend, if you want. I won't be upset if you decline, but the offer is on the table. I know a weekend probably isn't long enough, you'll get the flavour of the brand.

Cheers.

It was - I understand that you were primarily listening to the amp differences, and therefore a single pair of speakers will do that.

But as the Freedoms have a reputation for being less 'lively' than the originals, I wondered if you've got any other speakers handy as you have the amplifiers all lined-up to do so. Apart from the Quads.

Why? It helps the rest of us :)

Understand. Unfortunately not. The Mission tweeters are what I would deem pretty neutral. The Quad's tweeters are similar, perhaps a little quieter.

I have had quite a few different speakers lately, including actives, hence my description above. If you have speakers with hotter highs you should be able to translate that from my little comparison with the proviso that rooms make a difference too (and that your ears maybe better than mine).

Of course PP, why not. Very kind and it would be interesting. Beers are on me. I would eventually get to the brand I'm sure. I am a little baffled why I have not yet as reviews are overwhelmingly positive.

Genelecs are next on the list though after my Pro Music Store visit.

Let me know by mail when your down next and we regroup

Beers not needed. A mug of tea will suffice. :) There's a great pub in Corfe village. I'm more than happy to drop it off and possibly bring down the Dalis as well. Not sure when or if the site closes. I'll have a word with my brother over the next few days.

Off topic - I'm guessing you mean the one in the square opposite the ice cream shop - Greyhound is it ?

What you must do is go to the Square & Compass at Worth Matravers. Without doubt or question, this is the best pub in the world.

No, the Fox Inn.

My brother has only had the caravan for around 3 years. I've been there once due to home commitments.

The pub at Worth Travers was, I believe, is where boffins invented Chain Home Low (Radar to detect low sweeps by German aircraft in 1940)

Ah The Fox - a bit tatty, with fantastic locals and a long sloping crazy garden? All the Corfe pubs are great in their own way. Spent many many summers on the Isle. We should all move back to the 1970s.

They are all good amplifiers. Amazing what one can get these days for not much. I include the Hegel too (Steve Guttenberg has a review of the H95 coming out imminently).

Some scale a little better and that is kind of where the difference in cost comes in but I do not think many would be dissappointed with any of them in context of matched speakers. I think you have to spend silly money to get substantially better.
