NP, can you add a little flesh to your views on the Sneaky please. It would be nice to find someone who has heard it and agrees with me (or not)!
Yes, I've been toying with how/where best to do so. PP's thread about dealers (not?) is huge now, and this is about Olives, or was!
I mostly heard an amazing Linn Klimax active system, which I cannot easily do justice to (but will try another time). It's owner has a Sneaky DS in their large kitchen, ethernet connected, playing through Linn Komponent 104s. It sounded remarkably good, with astonishing bass for such small speakers (and 20w amp). The speakers are on granite worktops, tucked into corners under fitted units, but you'd never know it from the soundstage. No opprtunty to hear through the main system, but its owner really rates the SDS too, and I inferred he'd jump from that to the KDS, not bothering with (say) the Akurate range on the way up, as it were. (The KDS costing about 10 times as much!) But having heard the Klimax system for several hours, the fact that the Sneaky sounded as good as it did was a huge compliment to it. Indeed, we moved from the living room to the kitchen, and he flipped on the same track, (from the NAS) that we had just been hearing. Suffice it to say, I'm convinced, and reckon the Sneaky is bit of a 'sleeper' after that experience.
