It sounds amazing with my little 5.25" KEF Q100 coaxial speakers (cheap tweaked by me: they sound much better than new, much better). There seems to be a subwoofer in the room!

Ideally to test a subwoofer.

CD bought after the concert in L'Artesà (Tradicionàrius). Earlier I have received an email from them (I have good friends there) with the programming of the new Tradicionàrius festival.

Centre Artesa Tradicionarius

I have a lot of traditional/folk music (Spanish, Catalan, Basque and world).

It was a gift from my friend Jordi Fàbregas, the group leader. He is responsible for the recovery of traditional Catalan music. He directs L'Artesà since its creation, along with other members of this group and its other group, El Pont d'Arcalís. And, about all, he is a very good person.

Adrenaline rush!

I had to stand up and leave the room in the dark. Spinning, shaking the head. If the music sounds spectacular but it does not excite it is not the same for me.

Again, I LOOOOVE my tweaked KEF Q100 coaxial speakers. The last mod, more mass (over the furniture) like KEF LS50, it is a substantial improvement.
