System Pics 2024

I agree but I don’t think we have probably experienced the best in the environment it was designed for, certainly not a room like at the shows. I too have gone into rooms with £50k+ systems and thought they sounded harsh and not what I am used to.

Tweeters that contain ferrofluid can suffer from the ferrofluid drying out - that will result in a drop-off in high frequency output. AFAIK it’s a gradual (over many years) process/deterioration.

It also depends upon what the previous speakers were that you are comparing them to - all speakers will have a different tuning preference chosen by the designers. Positioning within the room is also critical.

The new KEF metas have a reputation for clarity (from what I have read) so you might just be experiencing the benefits of evolving knowledge/engineering. KEF Meta technology is supposed to reduce rear sound radiation within the driver which, when combined within the coaxial driver, should give a very clear, pin-point accurate sound.

A bit like our ears…

(of course no ferrofluid in our ears…the drop off in high frequency input is real)

Cheers Alex, I probably had them 14 - 15 years and yes there is a distinct presentation between the Kefs and the older Gurus for sure. I also have Kef LS50 Metas and the R3 Metas have even more clarity.

Still using E boards in the 72 but moved from the 10x5 to a 20x2. The 10x5 is a fantastic cart for the money and really works well with the E boards the 20x2 gives just that little bit more.

Thank you. Yes I like the sounds it reproduces very much. It has been many years in the making and was always part of a master plan for my retirement (which happened 7 months ago). Many of us say “journey’s end” and for me it really is. 252/300DR/NDX/LP12/Kudos 606.

The plinth on your LP12 looks gorgeous.

Thank you. It’s a Simon Price plinth in high gloss Indian rosewood.

Nearly as lovely as my Cherry one…:wink:

It is the loveliest non-fluted modern-style LP12 plinth on the Forum - the grain is simply gorgeous and the high gloss finish sets the wood off perfectly. As said, stunning…

Similar wood to my PE 805 D3, though the flash kinda ruins the gloss finish in these L&R photos.

Is that a Achromat on an LP12?

It is FZ, we have a standard Linn felt mat on my wife’s LP12, but I decided to be swayed by someone who swore that the Acromat was a better option.
I honestly don’t think it makes the slightest bit of difference, but I paid good money for it so it stayed on🤷🏻‍♂️
