Were you listening to the Kondo without a pre?

Howie, if you get the Kondo or Air Tight, what speakers are you considering?

Any reason for that? I am heading the way on Meridian ... so your advise seem nice sounding to me

You dont like horns? I owned Acapellas and they do sound nice ... not the Avantgardes which we auditioned together when you were here last year!

Be nice ot know your comments Jim.

I like the sound of all types of speakers because they are all different. Horns, electrostatic, ribbons, planers, etc. can all sound fantastic, and if I was going to have more than one system again, maybe I would build it around one of those alternatives, That said if I am only going to have one system I would stay with a more traditional design.
In my opinion "traditional" speakers do everything pretty good even if they do not do one thing or one type of music as well as those speakers noted above.
I would have liked to have heard your horns driven with all that Rowland power for as you know most people pair horns with low power tubes, so I have a hard time separating one from the other.
Bottom line, what I has suggesting to Howie, if you are going to have one great system for all types of music stick with his Meridians. If he has the room for a second system then add a horn/tube set-up.

Nothing traditional about your MBL speakers Jim.

Jadis Preamp DPL with Manley Ref250 monoblocka and Tannoy Westminster is the best sound I achived in my entire live. I used to have McIntos´h 2301's C200 pre but this is so much better. I am guessing the main problem was the preamp C200, not involving, dead sounding compare musical Jadis.
