  1. Re: Has Jim Smith discovered a magic formula for placing speakers correctly?

    FWIW...

    I use the 83% as a starting point so that I don't lose time, especially after having voiced over a thousand systems.

    I was pleased when Wilson came out with their 1/1.2 set-up ratio...

    Re: New (To me!) Sonus Faber Cremona M's

    Another consideration might be a Pass Integrated from Mike.

    I - and ALL of my RoomPlay Reference clients - find the Pass INT60 delivers absolutely wonderful Musical Engagement.

  5. Re: I left B&W & McIntosh and need help with pairings

    I just couldnít imagine how that setup as shown could produce any sounds that would unlock any music. Maybe I should have waited until I saw more images.

    If so, I apologize for being so direct.
  6. Re: I left B&W & McIntosh and need help with pairings

    Welcome!!!

    Sorry - IMO - I don't think you can possibly hear the various components' capability with that current System/Room set-up. Especially in the areas of Dynamics, Presence & Tone, which...

    Is this beyond the performance of the inherent grounding system of the latest Denali?

  9. Re: Unexpected results setting up Fyne 703s when usung my proven Tannoy Canterbury system-to-room voicing technique

    I have never pushed my Pass INT-60 to clipping.

    "Needing a lot of power to sing", I would say no, not with the effortless quality that is produced from the 703's 94 dB/1 watt sensitivity rating.

    It all looks good, bet it sounds even better.

    In case you don't, I might suggest removing that dust cover whenever you are using the tt.

    Re: Boulder 866

    By Tone, I was referring to perhaps a bit more body to voices and certain instruments. In this case, it is also related a bit to Presence.

    Not that I feel the Pass INT 60 is deficient in these...

    Not with the 94 dB 703s.

    The listening experience is at a high level here, just thought that maybe the overall tone from the 866 might be better.

    Re: Boulder 866

    Mike,

    I have been thinking hard about the 866.

    I assume that you think it outperforms my Pass INT 60. Is that a correct assumption? If so, in what areas is the difference most noticeable?

    Re: Michael Fremer joins TAS

    Agreed.

    Since Atkinson has retired, Stereophile seems to be drifting a bit, IMO.

    This won't help.
