    It's a box for keeping food fresh, that's all. If that's 'cool' i think you've been influenced unduly.

    I have yet to hear them in all honesty I'm sure i will do fairly soon though & they'll be on the back end of a KSA250, so no worries about driving them. I have heard they need a bit of current to get them lively so-to-speak & the Krell will certainly deliver in that department.

    Crucially the Glastonburys have no crossover in the midrange, which should be rather interesting as just about any other speaker does. Done passively with any normal speaker it'll never be seamless, though this can be approached via an active xover with Linkwitz/Riley filters & time delay compensation between the drivers to get the voice coils in line.

    I'm looking forward to having a listen, i'm just intigued as to why the enclosures are so huge when only accommodating a 7" bass driver?

    Perhaps i'll find out soon

    ATB, hope you have a pleasant weekend!
  2. Funny; was listening briefly to Bastanis the other day. First time ever.
    Still think you're crazy (driving!). i held off going 125 miles last week. Always SORN my car over winter! (Rented a van to fetch the 3090s)
    safe journey. Sitting snug and no intention of moving!

    Hi Chris,
    Yes finally got them sold. Didn't quite get what I wanted,but the guy bought the DPA amps too,so at least I can get the direct coupled amps finished finally!
    I haven't used the Acorns for quite a while as one of the panels needs recovered,which is a fiddly job. They do sound great though,far better than the III's, a lot more bass too.
    Just bought a pair of Bantam Golds to replace the DPA's, which will be used on a pair of OB's I got from Steve Aquapihrana, fed from a Behringer dcx2496. This will be used for AV duties once the direct amps are finished, till then for music too.

    Only downside is I have to deliver the speakers and amps,and the guy lives in London,so it's a long day for me on Saturday!

    Cheers from a bloody freezing Fife! (just waiting for the blizzards to descend)

    Regards.
