    ATC speakers / Monitors

    I have 8030C and when the KH150 arrived I briefly thought the same. But then my feeling was that the 8030s could be a little brighter. Anyway, I have dialled down the KH150 top end by 1db. Needless to say, the KH150 are superior speakers and the best I have ever had (I am ex ATC owner).

    Harbeth Monitor 30 Speaker Review

    Oh, I see. Mine are from 1999. It's a safe sound. Many people would probably like it and can live with it forever. However, when you play KH150 side by side, the 'Compacts' are nowhere near as clear. Clarity is the word that comes first to mind with Neumanns; Bass goes deeper and it's stronger...

    Harbeth Monitor 30 Speaker Review

    I don't understand this: "NOOOOO - The C7-ES2 is NOTHING REMOTELY like the C7-X", as a response to my: "It is C7ES-2, so I guess from the same era as the one reviewed here". I am saying that the C7ES2 is from the same ear as the speaker of this review, the Monitor 30.

    Harbeth Monitor 30 Speaker Review

    Sorry, but your post looks like copy/paste from Harbeth promo material. Anyway, I have Harbeth and Neumann KH150 here, playing side by side, and I can tell you that speech/voice is definitely more intelligible thru Neumanns. No doubt about it. Also, everything sounds better on them, regardless...

    Does you love of gear exceed your love of music?

    I rarely read about music, I always read about gear. Before I started reading forums I always enjoyed music. Now - 10 pair of speakes and tons of gear later - I'm rarely satisfied with the sound. Forums - and as a result - gear, It's like an (alcohol) addiction. Now I would need to completely...

    Most suitable portable headphone amp for Dan Clark Expanse/Stealth

    Planning to get Stealth or Expanse headphones. I was wondering which headphone amp would be the best (in terms of power) for either of these? Plan is to use iPhone (or MacBook) as a source. Are there any audiable benefits of having a separate dac? I am going to use the rig in various rooms at...
