    Very true. Going to have a few days just listening to the radio.

    Duncan's valve monos, I wondered who they went to. How are the big Tannoys working out then Roy? Looks like I might end up getting some so I'm interested to know.

    I really feel that they accurately produce what's coming from the source(s) with quite a natural sound. They don't produce as much bass as my DC10Ts but they could be a little overblown at times with certain materials. It's generally an unfatiguing, satisfying listen & they sound excellent with the valve amps, better than the big solid state quads? Could be..

    Cheers Roy. The bass thing does concern me a bit, as I'd have to use them a long way out from the back wall.

    The Ardens DO bass but more engaged with the rest of the spectrum, I had them cranked up the other day playing some Hardcore Superstar (Swedish Street Metal if you please..) and there was plenty of bass but, then there was plenty of mid range & plenty of top end. It just sounded right. Sometimes with the DC10Ts it felt like brown noise..

    Looking good there, Roy!
    My wife really liked those copper monos, and I don't think she has noticed yet that they are no longer among those present.

    They provide adequate power for you?
    This is your first taste of valve amps, I think? You enjoying the presentation?
