    Sure are getting better and better with each listen even hearing some things i have never hear before and i own 2 sets of good Tannoys and to say they will be my reference speaker from now on is saying something i think you would need to spend thousands to have this level of quality today thats truly why i love vintage HI FI theirs is stuff you just cannot beat today and im using Technics and to think what they would be like something British excites me even more the cleanest speakers i have ever heard on Vinyl too...

    Good to hear you are loving your IMFs Dan. As I think I mentioned to you (in another thread?) I also got my IMFs (ALS30) back up and running and they sure are good. Nice tight sound all round with incredible bass considering their size. I'm now limbering up to do a recap which ought to bring them up a great deal.

    What's the background to your IMFs and have the caps been done? (sorry if you said already).

    Hi Edward

    Will be making the remainder payment for the tisbury wednesday....

    The history of my IMFs are i think they have been barely used as they are showing no signs of sound deterioration at all honestly they are top notch i dont think doing the caps on my ones would make a difference but who knows i bought them from a lady doing a house clear in a very wealthy area of bournemouth so much so i had to pay over what they were listed for just to get my hands on them due to the phone calls she had at the time but only 30 over so a stonking bargain they were a month of waiting and they have delivered superb results....will be running a Quad 405 and Tisbury ASAP...


    Can not describe how happy i am.

    Thank You
    Daniel

    rock on Dan

    The Quad 405 will be a great match for the IMFs.

    Hopefully you have some solid stands as this will provide for great definition.

    As a fellow IMF owner I had a hunch that the Technics might make a good match. Although be interested to see what happens with your other amps.
