Each to their own on amplification but that’s by the way - I’m not telling him to avoid certain speakers on detail, for he will make those choices, I’m giving my opinion it’s wrong to make recommendations to others on choosing a speaker which doesn’t have detail. What next I want a speaker which is flat, not very dynamic, restricted soundstage and not very good imaging.CnoEvil said:IMO. It is the wrong approach, to tell people to avoid certain speakers (or any component)...as that is imposing your preferences on somebody else. We all have different tastes.
If I was to advise people to avoid amps I didn't like, Cyrus would be on that list....but I'm a strong believer in people finding out for themselves, from suggestions they get on here.
I’d stand corrected but I’m sure what he probably means is that he doesn’t like a speaker which has too much treble, which is fair enough. Judging by the naim and b and w system I’d expect this but it’s perfectly achievable to buy speakers that reveal everything but have lovely balance. After all that’s what most want when they buy that amp or new CD player and say ‘I’m hearing things on this recording I never heard and it’s given my music a new lease of life’. That’s what I’d and most people want if you spending £1500-£2000!
