    Default The Celestion Ditton 100's

    Hello Guys

    Temptation has go the better of me again and i bought a pair of these that came up local for a very cheap price so i jumped on them. I have got to say they are sweet little boxes to say the least very musical and very Rogers LS7 ish hence why i wanted them for the tweeter magic been warming them up overnight with the Pioneer SA 6300 and their quality is excellent their is a gramophone review online and they are very well liked. They were 15 and worth every penny their condition is excellent but am i right in thinking these were made by KEF?

    The only downside is the spring clip connections very fiddly otherwise happy as Larry i also cannot tell if the vinyl wrapping is factory or done by the last owner.

    I have a pair of Ditton 100's, but they don't look like yours, different altogether, mine look like these:

    Yes, yours look like they have the same tweeter as in the Rogers LS7's, I have a pair of those too.

    Well, I don't think too much of the sound quality of mine, lack of bass and coloured mid.

    These remind me of my old rogers and the sound quality is quite near but not quite... still great sounding though to me...we are all different...
