    Magico M9 vs. Magico Ultimate 3 Horn- Box vs. Horn! Which will be better? In which ways?

    It is the Danley HRE, which was introduced as part of the Tom Danley Signature product line. This is not a PA speaker, but a high-end audio one. We have a prototype for a few weeks in Budapest. Using it for our My Reel Club™ recordings presentations mostly. It is quite compact for the sound...

    Using the Danley Hyperion (now called HRE) active speaker prototype for our Gabor Juhasz Trio: Planets live studio-recorded DXD/DSD jazz album presentation last weekend in Budapest. In the same studio where it was recorded. We could compare different versions of the recording to the live music...

    My Reel Club - Experience your own reference recordings

    Sure. :) We have a home page, it will go public until mid-June or earlier. I will be at the High-end Show in Munich too, so there is a chance to meet there on the first two industrial days.

    Tom Danley's Hyperion speaker is announced

    Yes, you are right. The Studio 2 is not really sensitive where you put it. At least according to my experience. The Go2 is even less sensitive. Because of their very tight pattern control, and phase response, it is easier to find the right position for your speaker and for your listening...

    Tom Danley's Hyperion speaker is announced

    The other similarity between the Hyperion and Studio 2 that the mid/tweeter is driven with an amp channel, which means there is a passive crossover between the mid/tweeter at 2kHz and there is a DSP for the two other crossover points at 260Hz / 45Hz. It is very unusual to use an 8-inch woofer...

    Tom Danley's Hyperion speaker is announced

    Yes. The upper 3 way part of the speaker is generally (a fine-tuned) SM60F without its molded chassis from the affordable SM series (at least as I see it, I have no more info, only what is on the website). The SH series is more expensive generally than the SM series. The Studio 2 is based on...

    Tom Danley's Hyperion speaker is announced

    Yes, since 2006. :) I changed my Avantgarde Trio to a pair of Danley SH50 and was using dozen of different Danley speakers at home and for PA as well. I have a Go2 8 CX and an active Studio 2 at the moment. Studio 2 is a similar idea as the Hyperion. A coax 2-way Studio 1 ( Hyperion is a 3 way...

    Maximizing goosebump factor from Hi-Fi systems?

    Yes, definitely plus it is a kind of state of mind. You can have goosebumps from a "sound" of a system if it is something you were looking for, or it can happen because of the music and its emotional content. It used to happen to me sometimes when I was driving my car late at night and I was...

    Avantgarde Horn Speakers

    By the way, in this setup, the internal speaker wiring and the crossover parts are upgraded with the same custom made, handbuilt parts and silver wires what are used for the amp internal hook - up wiring and what are the interconnect, speaker and mains cables wires. It gives more air, better...

    Avantgarde Horn Speakers

    Yes, they really are. The photos do not show their full glory. Their finish is extremely smooth, very finely textured, you definitely want to touch it. Exactly like their sound. When I order my next Trio it will have the same light beige colour what is the chassis colour of the amps.

    Avantgarde Horn Speakers

    Another user showed his Clarinet Audio amps and Avantgarde Trio based system in "SET amp user topic" too. He is using the newer Avantgarde sub, the SUB231 in his system.
