    it is a shame . the earth terminal apparently can be used to bond the drive units back to ground to lessen the impact of rf interference . if shielded cables are used , this terminal can be used to connect to the shield apparently

    so playing a number of other albums like pyramaxx which is sort of rocky electronica using the naim supernait 2 there is a real energy from these, crisp but not too crisp meaning at lower levels you can hear more. so annoying in the evenings to have to turn it down when you are sharing the room and not be able to hear the detail

    the drums on mike oldfield sound very realistic , vocals realistic , not quite as good as the frugalhorn with the big msb amp but then the supernait cost about 13k less so that might explain that !!

    I suppose earthing the speaker chassis might be a good thing for user safety in the unlikely event of a dangerous fault in the amplifier.

    However, earthing the speaker chassis could be an added way that a short circuit is presented to the amplifier, possibly causing damage, if the voice coil shorts to chassis.

    played the eatons yesterday with the big thrax integrated valve amp and one hell of a sound . extremely compelling . they are a remarkable little speaker . not quite so beautiful to look at perhaps as the harbs

    today using with a valve pre and class a power to compare

    I quite like the look of them. All the 'new vintage' range look pretty good to me. I've only seen photos but the finish on them looks first class.

    my wife is pleased as each time i get a pair of speakers they are smaller !!! started off with 6 foot high electrostatics a few years back and getting smaller . must reverse that trend !

    ah fortunately she has allowed me to use a bigger room upstairs in which are the frugelhorns which are extremely good fun , especially with a naim supernait 2 . very very engaging sound that is quite addictive . the eatons are deeper and have the edge but then they cost 4k more !!!

    so got the new ones about a month ago but guess what , tannoy did not send a matched pair so after weeks of running them in , they have to be replaced !!!

    sounding better all the time , they were pretty dire when they were new but better now

    Perhaps we should just wait for a few decades
