You have to bear in mind that not one brand fits all. It's so very subjective. One of the tricks that dealers have is to play the speakers at high volumes. This gives you an instant impact or wow factor. That gives little indication on what they're like to live with on daily basis, month in month out, year in....Thank you for your input. My original post details a little better what I am after, and you are probably correct in your interpretation of the above. Primarily, I am looking for a pairing for my MF Encore 225 that will not add any colouration to what is already there in the music. I think the MF is fairly neutral (or balanced) in that it does not appear to add any such colouration or warmth to the recordings, and I am after a set of good quality speakers that will do the same, ideally from people who have experience with or have an MF encore player themselves.
I realise that it is easy to get drawn into 'h-fi' speak, or jargon, but I am a relative newbie and do not understand all of this, one person's 'natural' sound, is another person's' neutral' or 'accurate' sound, all of which may be correct in context to the individual poster, but may mean something else to different readers. For my part . I am rather hoping that If I use plain and ordinary words in context, most people will be able to understand what I mean, (with apologies to more seasoned audio and/or technical buffs who will no doubt sometimes cringe at the use of words, which may have a slightly different nuance in heir technical world). After all, I am seeking free advice and I am grateful for all such advice and opinion provided. Nor, for the avoidance of doubt, is this post intended as any kind of negative criticism of the last or other posts. I genuinely appreciate all contributions, which have so far and in the main been positive and informative, So, thanks again.
Nice one Yes, ATC hand build products to order.I have to admit that I liked the sound of ATC speakers that much I have a pair of SCM 7’s on order, should get them in around 5-6 weeks as apparently they are made to order.
Lovely! Cherry is the definitive ATC finish in my opinion. They’re a bit paler than this underexposed picture, and they do darken with age.Gone with Cherry, they will go rather well on some black stands (still to buy) and fit in with the Atacama rack the kit is sat on.
Wow Rick are you stocking QLN speakers now? Had a pair of their floorstanders once, lovely speakers. Not many people even know the brand and it's such a shame.
Yes, we do also stock QLN loudspeakers. Prestige 3’s are truly sublime. New Prestige 1’s are on their way.Wow Rick are you stocking QLN speakers now? Had a pair of their floorstanders once, lovely speakers. Not many people even know the brand and it's such a shame.
