Why the sudden change in mind? :scratch2:
I have also read over on the Harbeth site that Alan also used some plant stands from Ikea to test the C7's and 30.1's in the past. Kind of Alan's stance on any amp, any stand should work just fine for his speakers.
What sudden change of mind? Read the prior posts.
Shame on you Art

That won't be in doubt.
Sorry, thought I read the 682s were boxed up and waiting their new owner (at least that's where I remember things were) then the next thing I read was the 682s were staying and the rest are moving out.
That's what I get for not following along...
When do the Harbeths arrive Art?
They were boxed up at one point but I decided to keep listening.
Not sure, probably a week or so.
In what way? I wonder what the Spendor D7 sounds like.
The A6R is a great speaker so let me say that up front. To my ears the new midbass driver is so excellent and resolving that it leaves the tweeter sounding a bit gray and grainy. Just not as smooth as I would expect it to be. I actually prefer the tweeter in S3/5R2.
The D7 is supposed to be pretty incredible.
As the world turns. Gotta love this little hobby of ours.
Are you being sarcastic? If so I don't understand why.
Straight from the horses mouth. Alan Shaw never said he preferred Sound Anchor stands as is stated in the ToneAUDIO review. It ain't so.
My dealer is pretty emphatic about them, though. Skylan or Sound Anchor...I would buy a good light weight stand like the Foundation's if I could find them. Hate the look of the Something Solid stands...ah such first world concerns!
Yeah, I hadn't realized just how important a woofer could be to a speaker's midrange tone. The midbass driver in the Dentons is the key to it's unique sound, and I can't imagine it was an easy match. The LS50 must have taken a while to get right.
I'm itching to hear my Dentons right now, but I just don't have a good space to set them up right now (or ANY standmounter for that matter), not without blocking the W90's.
Today my wife said...I still see those B&W's sitting in their boxes. Why don't you put them in my office and see how I like them...OK, done.
Straight up...the resolution of 685's is so good that they really exposed what has been missing in my other speakers. They are what inspired me to move the Spendors on. The Harbeths are right on par for what I was hoping for.
