Re: What are the best speakers you have heard?

Strange - but I seem to like speakers that use T & P's Accuton Drive units !!

Re: What are the best speakers you have heard?

i am very new to home audio. i have heard B&W 685 floorstanders. i think it was an Onkyo theater amp. and the source was a lovely Cambridge Audio CD player.

music i heard was michael buble. was a lovely experience.

this was at a small audio store in Kolkata.

LOL Bhagwan we know that! You are the same guy who had Tidals right?

On a more serious note, I've always had a hankering to try to DIY with Accuton units but their cost and rumours about how didfuclt they are to crossover have kept me away.

Re: What are the best speakers you have heard?

Sir,
The Marten looks very similar to a Verity. Is this using Accuton drivers?

Did you have a chance to listen to any Verity (say like a Parsifal)?

@santhosh: are these single driver implementations?

I recently heard the Audire iO2 with the 4 inch Fostex, single driver full ranger and I was mighty impressed. The coherence coming out from the speakers was amazing, and the LF extension was surprisingly deep for a 4 incher! though the setup was less than optimal.

Can someone guide me on a single driver back loaded horn DIY that a noob like me can attempt? I specifically need as much lower freq extension, and am open to sub reinforcement.

Re: What are the best speakers you have heard?

Shouldn't the question be qualified with a budget tag? I mean "best speakers under $1000" or "best speakers under $3000", etc. Also, I think it should be with a practical usage in mind, e.g., home theatre. Now, I am sure that not all of us are not rich enough to have a dedicated 50' x 25' movie hall or thereabouts. So there is no point on raving about a $15,000 a pair speaker that can yield 500W of power per channel, etc.

Sorry to be "the spanner in the works".

Sir,

Excellent point;

However, certain basic things need to be addressed :-

a]
Topic - What are the best speakers you have heard ?

There is no Price Qualification here - if the Topic Creator had put a price qualification - US $'s 1000/- or US $'s 3,000/- etc. I would have offered my suggestions in accordance.

b]
How I wish those speakers costed US $'s 15/- K
I would have purchased them in all the colours / finishes - that too without asking for a single cent in discount....trust me - I say the truth !!!

c]
Speakers do not yield Watts - They need watts to be driven.
They deliver SPL - that is measured in dB [Decibels]

d]
The Surrontec has a speaker that is listed @ 250/- K Euro
The Marten Coltrane II is listed @ 100/- K Euro
This is just for your kind information....

e]
Yes, they do need 'big' rooms for them to play 'appropriately.
The Surrountec needs a 400 sq. ft. room & The Marten Coltrane 2 needs a 300 sq. ft. room to play well. It is installed in Mumbai in a 250 sq. ft. room & plays OK - I think !!
