    Thanks for the recommendation Nial. I found a copy of Skol on Discogs and it's on the way here.

    ...few of them advertise in HiFi magazines.

    Paul is one of the good guys, whilst I haven't heard his gear I've enjoyed his posts on the forums & reading about his experiences.
    Yes, I've enjoyed reading his posts too. Always considered and informative. It's a great loss that he no longer contributes to any of the forums.

    Luckily for me they are also great not-jazz speakers too
    SBT/Chromecast/TEAC T1 into TEAC D-T1 DAC or olde-worlde Rega Planar 2 controlled by Rotel RC850 into HH S500D or DACT Passive Pre into Mullard 5-20 monos. Then into Tannoy Cheviots and a Wharfdale sub. All connected by colourful cables.

    [Unacceptable remarks removed - admin] Besides I' haven't heard any that even remotely live up to claims.
    Yes I'm a cranky bugger BUT I've been 'fooling' with these crossovers since mid 70's Made a LOT of mistakes.. also learned a few things along the way
    Want a serious/ genuine improvement..on your OEM crossovers?
    2 choices:
    a) Recap them (only! the caps)
    example here: http://www.44bx.com/tannoy/goldcrossovermods1.html
    This will make Marked improvement.. V cheap And easy..Most are V happy with the results
    a) Follow Troels' design
    http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/MG15XO-up-grade.htm
    For a slightly better result.. Gonna have to have a Really GOOD system to notice the improvements though

    Anything else is merely Brochure babble delivered to Garner Income. Sad, but too often true.

    Truth is Tannoy did a damned good job of it.. only Very small improvements are retroactively possible.
    Digest on that for a moment

    Seriously wanting to improve your DC's sounds to a markedly 'better' level ?
    Go for an active crossover setup and ALL that involves. It's a Heavy path though.

    My audio bits: Thorens / diy phono, CD/dvd player(s), diy pre, F6, Tannoy Golds in my boxes / my xovers, and of course all strung together with basic diy Wires
    Lots of Cd's, yet more audio files, a couple of hundred semi worn Lps.

    Thats an honest post, but, after hearing the before and after effects of PAuls work on my Tannoys I would have to stick with Paul's work. In fact, I'm having my current XOs redesigned again and yes the effects will only be subtle but I view the financial outlay as proportional to the improvements.

    Danilo, I've warned you before about making inappropriate comments about people's equipment, and rudely slagging off respected, highly qualified manufacturers here, by referring to them as a "shed upgrade business", also comes into that category.

    So, you're out for a week, and during that time I'll be considering whether you'll be wanted back even after that, as I don't really think you belong here.

    Marco.
