I used to have a pair of Dunlavy SC-V with dome midranges. Great speakers, loved them. Sold in 1998 to purchase a pair of SC-VI, which are even better than the SC-V, especially for the vocals, lower frequencies (below 30hz), and dynamics.
Good idea! I will contact him. I read about the new version of the princess and the senator. Seems like he is developing a new version of the sovereign too. The new Princess seems to be priced around US$50K. He is sticking to the John Dunlavy principles, but using...
Some of the owners of Dunlavy speakers are engineers (like me), have knowledge about crossovers, speaker design, measurement etc and are willing to take the risk to mod Dunlavy Speakers. This is certainly not for everyone.
There has been evolution in speaker drivers since the...
Did anyone find a better midrange to replace the Vifa M13SG-09-08 used (at least) in the SC-I, SC-IVa, and SC-VI?
The trick here is to find a midrange that has a similar rollof at the high frequencies, because of the low pass 1st order filter. The extension of the lower frenquencies...
Are the speakers toed-in so you only see their front, don´t see their sides? At this position you will usually have the most air, you can decrease the toe in if it is too much.
I have not heard the cables you are using, so I have no idea how they sound. I recommend the Kubala...
I understand that the tweeter and midrange used in the SC-VI are the same used in the SC-IVa and SC-I. I don't know which tweeter is used in the SC-V, don't know would it integrates with the SV-V midrange (which is different from the SC-VI), and don't know the topology and...
Fellow audiophiles that have experience with the TG M12 Gold switch,
I currently connect my fiber cable modem (powered by a good LPS) directly to the Innuos Zenith Statement, and it sounds great. I have never tested an audiophile switch (and it would be difficult to test before purchasing...
I had a SC-V for three years (1995-1998), and then purchased a SC-VI (1998) which I still use (with lots of mods). I heard a SC-IVa at a dealer. IMHO, If you have a decent size room, the SC-V is much better than the SC-IVa. What matters in terms of sound is that the drivers be in good...
What I suppose is that the L10 power supply is completely optimized for the L10 preamp, and not generic like the X1. So perhaps the L10 power supply has multiple taps, each optimized for specific portions of the L10 preamp circuit. However, it would be nice to know the details.
Hi, Thanks for asking! I have not sold: (i) my schroder LT and (ii) my Technics SP10 mk.3 modded by Steve Dobbins. I have not placed a proper sale ad yet... Anybody interested in either, please send me a message. Cheers, VPN
There is Jim Smith.
He has a book, Get Better Sound, full of useful info, and performs room setup (his Roomplay service). I have not used his service.
After talking with SRA, I just ordered a Virginia(ae) class plaform for my CH L1+X1 preamp stack, so it will be directly on the floor. I will move my Innuos Zenith Statement to the lower shelf of the Scuttle mk3 where the preamp is currently located. I was told that the preamp...
I do. I purchased a two tier Scuttle mk3 (regular, not double width) and it provided a massive improvement in the sound of both my CH L1+X1 (lower shelf) and Totaldac Twelve SE (upper shelf). I am now purchasing a Virginia Class platform for the CH L1+X1 and will move the Innuos Zenith...
I brought my previous Zenith SE to the house of a friend who has the Vivaldi 2 stack and we connected it to the Ethernet input of the Vivaldi upsampler. It was a massive improvement vs. the server that he had there (please pm me if you want more deals), so I suppose that the Statement would be...
When I had the Zenith SE, I compared the Ethernet output vs. the USB output, feeding my Totaldac Server, and the Ethernet output was vastly superior. So now I am using the Ethernet output of the Statement, but I have not yet compared it to the USB output of the Statement.
I would like to report that I upgraded from the SE to the Statement (thanks Asiufy!), and it is indeed a substantial improvement. I have had it playing music for less than a week, but as good as the SE is, the Statement, in my system, has more detail, better body, soundstage, and lows...
