ESTELON YB FLOORSTANDING LOUDSPEAKER £14,500 REVIEW

December 28, 2017 § 1 Comment

“I would add at this point though that, if you judge your speakers by their shock value and routinely use terms like bass-slam, or if you lean toward the very taut and overtly impressive type of hyper-realistic sound, then pause for thought here because that is not what the YB is all about. They can certainly move air but, compared to the ceramic driver Estelons, they don’t quite manage that percussive leading edge nor that ruthless pistonic, chest rattling bass that I know so many love. I love it too, but these speakers are simply not like that. I wouldn’t call them gentle, but they certainly seem a little more polite than I remember the stand-mounted XC. In fact it took me about a while before I finally grew to understand their voice. Whether it was the speaker or me, who knows, but I got hooked on the timbre and texture of Tony McManus’ guitar during an afternoon listening session (where I investigated the world of the Celtic acoustic guitar) and began to understand what a great musician he is through the YB. I always admired his fantastic technique, but it was the Estelons that reinforced to me how tonally and phrase-expressive he could be, too. ”

McIntosh Announces XRT2.1K Loudspeaker $130,000

“Visually, the XRT2.1K is as striking as it sounds. The reinforced bass cabinet is a combination of brushed and black aluminum and is finished with 7 layers of high gloss piano black paint. The line array mimics the timeless McIntosh front panel appearance with a glossy black center section and 2 silver aluminum end caps. It is suspended from the front of the bass cabinet via steel spiders that are capped with covers that look like a McIntosh control knob. The removable speaker grilles are attached via magnets and feature black knit cloth with high gloss trim.”

“My last two tracks were meant to see how female voices were reproduced. This is where the true strength of these loud speakers shine. The ribbon tweeter producers a great non fatiguing airy sound. Daniela Andrade’s cover of “La Vie En Rose” was pure and touching with her voice put on full display through the loudspeakers. ”

Triangle Esprit Antal Ez Speakers $2,999 Review

“Classical fans take note; the Ezs ability to project true detail of a full orchestra is top notch. Though rated down to 40hz, a little bit of room gain goes a long way to create a strong impression of deeper bass. The larger your room, the more you will be able to take advantage of the wide soundstage these speakers are capable of. For my money, the Triangle Esprit Antal EZ speaker are just plain awesome. Combining punchy dynamics, wide dispersion and phenominal imaging, they bring every musical selection to life. The way they draw out subtle musical artifacts makes them a joy to listen ”

The Gold Note PH-10 Phono Stage and Mediterraneo Turntable

“Right from the start, I liked the look of the Gold Note turntable. The exceptionally stylish Walnut plinth, hefty black platter, and relatively compact size make it an eye-catching addition to any decor. Dave Clark’s article discusses how easily he had the turntable up and running in about an hour. In turn, I appreciate the Mediterraneo’s ability to change speeds at a push of button, as well as its easily accessible and smooth-action cueing lever. There have been times when I’ve tried to make a last second cueing adjustment, only to see the cartridge bounce off my thumb and skip across a record because the tone arm lowered unpredictably. No such mishaps occurred with the Mediterraneo. Speaking of unvarying performance, I am also inordinately pleased to report that the Mediterraneo runs at the correct speed. ”

MrSpeakers Ether Flow Review

Highs: The highs are excellent on the Ether Flow, true treble heads will crave a tiny bit more presence but the quality here is outstanding. They are always present in the mix, and the spatial accuracy of the highs is very good. You can pinpoint where instruments are in the mix very easily, what I enjoy is the natural tone of the highs. They are not artificially boosted and are far from metallic sounding, coming across with a very natural tone. The thing about the Ether Flow is they are not the most open sounding headphones but there is excellent imaging and coherency. The highs might not have extreme energy or sparkle, but they do extend well and the Ether Flow is far from a dark sounding headphone.

“there’s no way I’m going to describe all 36 signatures. In fact, I have not listened to them all. After reading the manual, I installed Red, Black, Gold. Then, after speaking with a friend, switched to Red, Black, Gunmetal. I have not experimented further. That is the sound I like. It is the most bass-heavy and warmest, despite what the manual claims”
