    Default Announcement of a new arrival

    Well, after thinking things over I decided a change was in order and if you're got a mate who is selling something special then the time is right.
    The delivery was a fairly painless affair and after a little wiggling and pushing they were in place.
    They sound ffffff-ing lovely, I'm sure I'll find better ways to describe them but for now that will do.

    Thanks Olly, I'd been listening to my Harbeths for 25 years so the change was long overdue. Absolutly chuffed with them, Jamie actually said that if I'd changed my mind he would keep them but he's not getting them back lol. I hope the arm transplant is going well, I guess you could have done with the spare plinth to experiment with now......

    I'm a little restricted for space and I need to move the CD racks sideways a tad but they fit in nicely and did I mention the sound, amazing

    Very nice! After having had a pair of these on loan for a month or so many years back I was so impressed with them back then that I went overboard trying to persuade Jamie to just buy them when he was offered them at an amazing low price just up the road and was asking for opinions on them... If they had been closer and Jamie had passed them up I would have had them myself!

    I don't congratulate people on their new purchases! But must say, those look really retro and down to earth!

    Nice system.

    My impression, as with the company, is that they are a serious attempt at a quality L/S.

    Hahaha, not at all mate. Geoff has a cunning plan which should work. Time will tell. I'm confident though. Only trouble is I'm not sure it'll budge the Mission lol. Anyone interested in an Alphason should keep their eyes peeled.

    Just in case.

    Those speakers look the nuts in your space too. Enjoy!

    They look absolutely superb Ian - nice one!

    I was looking at them wondering how they would sound compared to my Tannoys - I think they are a fairly similar size speaker.

    How is the Wagner sounding - plenty of scale and oomph??
