About Me

50 plus years of hi-fi. Biased towards horns and valves (tubes) but use mainly a Tact semi-digital amp at the moment. I agree totally with your comments about realism in reproducing music and how to achieve it.

I also am a fervent DIY'er and a great deal of my equipment has bee self made. The picture of part of my speaker system is and adaption of the Tannoy Autograph but with 2 X 15" dual concentrics and much heavier cabinet walls coupled with additional ribbon drivers to add to the mids and treble plus a super tweeter. Sub woofer is just as exreme.

Hello Chris,

Wow, what a review. It's fantastic. And so is the system. (Please check your e-mails for the rest of my response - too lengthy for posting, here).

Thanks for sharing.

Kindest regards,

Winston.

Hello Chris,

That sounds like a great idea.

I could perhaps publish your 'review', if you don't mind. I'm sure my readers would be very interested in your awesome system, and how it came about. If you do write it up, please don't forget to elaborate on the sound of it, especially compared to those with the 'best' conventional types of speakers. In other words, how realistic are the Tannoys, compared to conventional types? And what sonic features (dynamism, tone, etc) make them as realistic as I'm sure they are. (i.e. if this is not too much to ask).

I'm sure your sub-woofed 'Double-Autograph' Tannoys would shame something like an X-2, for instance, so please let my readers know if I'm right.

Cheers,

Winston.

Hi Chris,

.

Welcome to WAJ on AUDIO, and thanks for joining.

.

It's encouraging to know you agree with my views on sonic-realism, and on the best ways of approaching it. Needless to say, I'm fascinated by your system - or what I've seen and heard of it , thus far. I wish you had the time to elaborate on its make-up, and on its sound. Being somewhat familiar with 'lesser' Tannoys, I'm sure yours must be totally awesome. Not even the great Westminster Royal should be able to compete with double-15 Autographs. And did you say they're sub-woofed? (More folded-horns?) My Gosh, man - are you serious? (Well, obviously).

.

Some of us would rather reading about a system such as yours, than to see another rave about Wilson/Krell, and the like, which the popular mainstream audio mags so delight in forcing upon us. It's a travesty that they promote these while they exclude the much better systems (as yours is - I'm absolutely sure).

.

Enjoy the music!
