anyone had experience of these? Look like Muso’s stood on end.


#5073

Over priced and dodgy seller.

I would have thought these were more appropriate.

If you are interested, offer £1k.


#5074

I thought they were the nations favourite :blush:
I’m struggling to get lower frequencies from my system at lower listening level, hence looking at speakers with subs integrated.
Might just add a cheap sub and see if that helps.


#5075

Just get this, I have one, super sub and flexible. Not that big for a top sub either. Fast as well, a lot of subs suffer from being slow.

The below is cheaper, but nowhere near as good (I have owned one)

The BK subs are quite good also, I had a BK 200FF and quite liked it for £100 second hand. Nowhere near as good as the M&K MX350, but then smaller and cheaper.


#5076

Try here.
I am sure they will have the forward firing at the same price. They are sealed, rather than ported, so a bit tighter and faster.


#5077

I believe that the MX350 is Isobarik, no port for the front facing driver. I found that the M&K subs much tighter than the BK one I owned, I ended up lifting the BK off the floor to get rid of a boom resonance with the suspended floor (30mm of polished granite slab). The BK are good, it’s just the older M&K is better.


#5078

Yes, I’d say more than a Marantz but definitely not as much as a Luxman.


#5079

always read good reports on those, years ago I intended to add one to my AVI actives before I realised they were just shite and it wouldn’t have helped


#5080

The last Marantz thing I had smelt very much of cheap cigarettes. It was sunny and warm, so I left it outside for a week (taken in at night) to air.


#5081

Not quite, more of a push pull. Isobaric would have the second cone completely in the box.

Push pull in theory can lower distortion a bit.

#5083

Definitive Audio have the excellent Trafomatic Experience 2 300b integrated in their ‘stuff’ list for £1k - cracking value if you have suitable speakers.
*They also have the power amp version for the same price.


#5084

The bigger news is they have updated the list for the first time in months. Shame I don’t have £10k for the SME 30/2.


#5085

#5086

Yes , they dont update it very often and a fraction of the size it used to be


#5087

Vfm considering they were 4k , i guess there is no distributor now is there ?


#5088

Try selling one second hand, you have to give them away.


#5089

Yep, that’s the Marantz odour. There’s even a blog somewhere about trying to get rid of it…


#5090

The oil filled mat looks bollox’d, there are no replacements.


#5091

They always are in my experience. Still, don’t let it put you off - other mats are available and it’s still a stunning turntable. It’s one of the best I’ve ever owned.
