Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


#3355

Townshend Rock II with my rebuilt Mayware Mk4 now with carbon firbre arm tube and London Supergold with pod.


#3356

Really - I’d have thought they might need to come forward more. if anything.
The bass is actually very nice where they are - full but tight.


#3357

They seem to be adequate.


#3358

Nice, I have one of those. The trough makes all arms sound the same, odd and thus I laugh at people who put super expensive arms on them.


#3359

Not quite the same but I see what you’re getting at.


#3360

Slightly biased here as I have the MF9 floor standers, but they are ace. Heard a pair at Scalford several years ago, and was very impressed.


#3361

Think that was the late oldfogey’s MFS - I liked them at Scalford too and have been keen to try a pair ever since.
These are the more recent XLS version - though they look pretty much the same.


#3362

Ah, I see now. They have the new tweeter at the front.


#3363

Very nice, have they passed the Keith test yet ?


#3364

Actually rather liked the original version (not heard the update) - small floorstander sound in a standmount-sized box. Do need quality Watts up 'em in some abundance, but imagine you have that sorted.


#3365

The bass is isobarik IIRC. Very nice speakers. The new tweeter Neat use is much better than the previous generation which was a bit forward for my tastes.


#3366

Naim statement


#3367

:joy: - do work well with Naim tho’…


#3368

Yes I had a few neat/naim combos and did enjoy them

Would love to hear them again to see how they would fare against my current system


#3369

I like the Naim/Neat combo, but wouldn’t climb over your kit even to get to Polarbear’s silly£££ system (as was) …


#3370

Must remember to try and get a quick listen to the new speakers at Bristol this Friday.

#3371

Just remembered that I still have a pair of neats in the loft. Must get them fixed


#3372

Make soup :grinning:


#3373

Isobaric. ‘Isobarik’ is the name of an awful Linn speaker.


#3374

@coco Do you remember the guy who came with me to yours last time I visited? He’s just been given a pair of Isobarik DMS in a relative’s will. But he does have £30k plus of Linn/Naim gear.
