    https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20191228/2fc2857d63276aac6870d5d7631e7892.jpg

    Re: Von Schweikert VR-44 Aktive

    I did realise there is a huge slash in pricing on used VR44 too.

    Hi all,

    I chanced upon a pair of 5 year old VR-44 Aktive for sale at a very reasonable price from a VSA dealer in the Far East.

    I was hoping if someone here could shed some light on the...

    Re: Mira questions

    I listened to a used pair of Miras last month through the VAC 450 monos and reckon they needed to be listened at mid to higher volumes for them to come to life. Seems to like a bit more current too,...

    Re: A4 or A5?

    Good on Magico for bringing more models. If this is going to be the A4/5/6 then it will tap a wider customer base.
    On the other hand, the model lines are getting even more crowded some of the series...

    I agree with Mike- there is bass and there is Magico bass. Part I liked about Magico was the bass definition. The means the bass delivered was extremely accurate, defined and seemed to work in...

    Hey Jimmy

    My exact thoughts on the 330. I thought they were very balanced in presentation.

    Re: New 3 series

    I listened to the 330 through the S3 MK II. They were good- bass, mid and highs. I guess the concern is pairing it with a more demanding speaker with non linear characteristics which limits choices. ...

    The S3 Mk 1 is at an attainable price without breaking the bank and lets me still keep my VAC preamp and get the VAC power amp for the price of a ex demo S3 Mk 2. I got to agree the M2 or the M3 is...

    S3 Mk I

    I listened to the S3 MK II yesterday and was simply amazed by them.

    The price of the S3 Mk 2 is not one that I can afford in a heartbeat but instead I was offered an ex demo S3 Mk I.

    Mike,

    Are the YB model considered 2-ways? So far the YGs have impressed me. Close 2nd by a hair is the Kharma.
    I am going to listen to the Magico S1 on Thursday.

    Estelon YB

    Recently been looking at a few 2 way speakers - YG Carmel and Kharma S7S but wondering if anyone had auditioned the Estelons in particular the YB? Any input will be great. Thanks.

    If it blows away the other speakers on my shortlist, bet the AGs will end up in my room.
