  1. great speakers ! glws. slightly o/t, i have heard both pictured pre and power amps in separate systems before, but never together. how is the synergy between the two?
  2. indeed - an artist so avant-garde, his music can be terrifyingly out-there.... the album, 'soused' being one of my favourite albums of all time, as you well know, shane. (hope you are well!) i played 'soused' last week at work, without knowing about his passing. it evoked comment from many, many customers. some positive, some inquisitive, some negative. then last sat night was listening to 2ser fm and they were playing a suite of his early music, and my thoughts were confirmed when the dj announced that he had passed. one of the greatest artists of our time. RIP
  3. they stopped doing tad's years ago. there is zero aus representation i believe. the cr-1 is quite a large speaker when you see it in the flesh. big sound too.
  4. another vote for duette 2's. have heard them - very under-rated speaker. easiest wilson to drive, and perfect for that size room. tad cr-1 is great also, but is very hard to drive and needs a bigger space to stretch it's legs. haven't heard me-1, but reports are good. also, take a look at kaiser stand-mount.
  5. yep, i don't buy anything from them anymore. i tried, and in all cases was a complete joke. i can't believe what they have done. how can anyone degrade their business in such a manner. i don't think they will last too long if they don't rectify the situation NOW.
  6. maybe the wamm mc could rival all the others, from one box?
  7. i think i would maximise every rack, cable and isolation component before i could commit to a 4 tower system. also, i would need a much bigger living space, so i am pretty much limited by the room first and foremost. i have heard the old genesis, the acapella and the tidal. granted, they were all at dealer's showroom, so maybe not fully tweaked, but i've watched them play with them for hours on multiple occasions trying to get things right. hearing sunn (((0))) and scott walker's, 'brando' at full tilt on the tidal, was pretty good though.... just ask @metal beat
  8. i have never owned a 4 tower system, but have heard a couple of them and i come to the conclusion that they are complex beasts and present many issues and variables, with their 'operators' perpetually tweaking and tinkering to get good sound through electronic processing and placement and such. then you have the room to deal with. then it sounds better when you stand up. then you need an array of amps........ i prefer simplicity. less is more imo. but that's what happens when we venture too deep...
  9. yamaha man will deliver them straight to your door * read the ad again.....
  10. we are same, except i do listen to cd's as well as vinyl and cassette....☺️
  11. KID A love both albums obviously, but i think kid a has much less filler than amnesiac, which probably has a couple of trax which i consider to be amongst their very best, but other trax which i fast forward. on kid a, only the middle track is like an interlude that i skip. the rest is interstellar and cohesively so.
