  1. Re: New speakers: Magico M3 v Rockport Cygnus v YG Sonja 2.2 v Gryphon Pantheon

    Good call. Since founder and chief designer Yoav Geva is out, it is a little unclear how the company and its products will evolve.

    Re: Mytek new DAC/Streamer/Pre

    Itís kind of incredible that nowadays everyone is trying to charge the price of a small car for their gear. Totally out of proportion IMHO.

    Re: Burmester

    Very nice power amps. But Burmester have not really released anything interesting since the 911 mk3 almost a decade ago.

    They have launched a media player for 20k, and are partnering with...

    Someone else will probably answer your question better, but that was exactly my point about the Vimberg Minos. With its 6.6Ē woofers, even if there are three of them, it does not produce natural full...

    Anshul, my only reservations against Tidal would be the high price, and that I just have not heard them enough. Their reputation is stellar, Jimís comment only adds to it.

    Based on my auditioning...

    AJR, this might sound like a funny question, but have you considered the A5s?

    Of course the M series is more prestigious, but how much more do you really get vs. the A series? If I would still be...

    Retirement System ... re-visit.

    Congrats, very nice system.

    Iíve had the Uno in my system as well for a test. The XD architecture allows to tune-in the bass nicely to room conditions.

    As they say, the only constant is...

    A bit of a pussycat, arenít you [emoji3]? Would it not make sense to check beforehand, before putting five figures into a component?

    I could sell you some second hand Lansches for list price......
  12. New speakers: Magico M3 v Rockport Cygnus v YG Sonja 2.2 v Gryphon Pantheon

    Iím swopping gear regularly, for the fun of it. And just to try out something new. Often I also just gauge the market to check what kind of offers I could get.

    The Magico S3 mk2 I sold after 2,5...
  13. New speakers: Magico M3 v Rockport Cygnus v YG Sonja 2.2 v Gryphon Pantheon

    Donít get me wrong, the Vimberg Mino was not bad at all. All views are based on personal preferences.

    What sounds bloated or strained in the bass for one person might be just right for another....
  14. New speakers: Magico M3 v Rockport Cygnus v YG Sonja 2.2 v Gryphon Pantheon

    And that did not occur to you in case of the Vandersteens, where you praised the external high pass filter?

    A high pass and a low pass filter does a similar thing as the crossover, regulating...

    Apparently you have no clear understanding of what you are talking about. Just blabbering something picked up from a 3rd party source.

    I must apologize, donít want you to be unhappy.

    Does it sound to you like Alpinist is planning on skipping the Vandersteens and I the Lansches?

    Iím confused. My point about a separately powered low-end was bi-amping. You didnít seem to like that, now you do? [emoji3]

    The Lansches also do have double 10Ē woofers and a 1200 W power section...
  21. New speakers: Magico M3 v Rockport Cygnus v YG Sonja 2.2 v Gryphon Pantheon

    I guess many people with active subs might not concur with your point of view.

    E.g. AGs improved their performance significantly with the XD generation.

    Do understand, but donít agree.

    Also, you say analog circuitry also introduces delay, how are those different from any crossover? Then every crossover should introduce delay.

    If it would be...

    This is interesting, what does the ďdesigner criticismĒ say?

    I mean, there are lots of ďdesignersĒ who swear by it. Technically it is obvious, that having a single amp driving all drivers puts a...
