    Their Control 1s are surprisingly good...

    They are a constant source of temptation to me. They be a lot different to your Spendors, though, Jim.

    Much more of a rock music orientated speaker with great dynamics I would imagine, so yes very different to the Spendors!

    Nice Geoff, how would you describe their sound? I might take you up for a listen sometime as I can pop up to Liverpool quite easily!

    I heard a pair of the reissues at a show a while back. They were excellent. Really, really nice to listen to.

    Their sound is full without losing detail. It's interesting that the British tend to think of them as a rock speaker but the Japanese jazz lovers pay a fortune for them.

    A good friend simply says that they make you want to listen to the music for a long time
