I didn't hear the CR1s but I guess they will be in another league altogether, if partnered with the right electronics

    Cheers
    But you didn't hear the Stenheims

    Agree.....not the small ones. The big ones sounded very dynamic and huge! But you should have heard the TADs ( assuming you didn't). They are really very impressive for their size

    I am interesting to buy TAD cr1
    I have 2 Kondo Souga and i would like to try to biamp them
    I spoke with mr. Frank,Tad ambassador,and told me is sure power is ok,he listen one time with Ongaku and the sound was fantastic.
    I had also Ongaku but Souga seems same power
    We see

    The big TAd R1 i dont like
    Too much bass and midbass,and disappear the beauty of the mid
    The CR1 has less low but mid is fantastic

    Good choice. But compare it to Stenheim monitors if you can

    I agree with you there. I didn't like the bloat either

    other choice is stenheim,
    I have to check first if Souga power is ok,and second if there is special price being not imported in Italy.
    Tad i can have new at very very special price

    I wish Stenheims were distributed more in the US. I think they only have a single dealer - they are efficient and beautifully made.

    i would never pair TADs with Kondo fwiw

    I've heard the Stenheim Alumine 3 combo with Nagra VPA and Audio consulting phono/pre. Was very impressed by them. They are in a small footprint and beautifully designed. I hope to be able to hear the Alumine 5 later this year as they are more realistic to be a good fit for my medium-sized listening space. Bonzo, what size room were the Alumine 5 playing in?
