Shiny brand new second hand things in my system today


I always get confused with bariatric and isobarik

One is a toilet for fat fuckers


And the other is …




Clearly his relative has a twisted sense of humour. A fuck you from behind the grave! I approve.


got some tannoy eatons in system to play with , using an old phillips amp they go impressively deep for such a small box . certainly played organ deep . i can see why folks like them . i think they are about 4.5k


sorry only just spotted this, was Meridian 556 but lacked power (170w) a 557 would have been ideal but looks like owners are holding on to them!
So I ended up with a Musical Fidelity A5 integrated with full L2 upgrades (not the least of which is 3 transformers replacing the single std multi tap). I am guessing must be 500w at least. Only downside is that the phono stage doesn’t impress much so my TdP Ear834p ain’t going anywhere :slight_smile:
We will also be running with a John Wood Audio KT88 at the Kegworth show.

not surprisingly goes deeper than the frugalhorn and will continue listening


also got the big beast of a thrax , no idea how much it weighs but the carrying case must weigh a good many kgs . quality looks absolutely beautiful with loads of grills . now i think the harbs are 6ohm so i had it on 4ohm . not sure if that was right but dealer suggested that. so will try 8 ohm as 4 ohm seems a bit overwhelming with bass .

the imaging and soundstage are way better than the supernait 2 but then it does cost 10k compared to 3k . the supernait is fun in its own way and certainly gives entertainment

The guy I bought them off uses the bigger XL6 floorstander and has a Naim Statement to power them.


According to the website it’s only 12Kg…


Phil’s got weak arms


yes i asked that question of the dealer . now seeing that both dealers struggled to get it out of a car i would estimate it weighs at least 41kg with the case !!


Don’t care what amp you put with those Harbeths, the room - speaker interaction is fatally flawed.


the tannoys and supernait are in a different room which is about 5m by 4m and sounds pretty stunning . agree ones lounge is very compromised .

just put a new rug and put curtains back and its pretty good in the attic room which i have been doing for 2 weeks


New rack, Finite Elemente on it’s way




Reasons. Is that MAX’s rack Bob?


Telly stand?


Can’t see Bob paying dealer scum prices.

Probably the one on PFM?


Only way to watch Peppa pig imo


Needs a Shakti stone on the top ideally.
