Re: KEL84 v KT88

I first got to listen to them both when Peter was running WD and he described them as having a similar sound but but the KT88 having more muscle and drive. That is essentially what I heard.

After...

Re: KEL 84 for sale

Adrian, your initial post asked if power was preferable to integrated for your sale.

As a recent buyer I read both your post and Alís and it was the fact Alís was integrated which made me select...

Re: Where to buy valves

I did look on their site John, but could not find the valves I want.

Re: Anyone ever tried his WD25T on stands ?

When Peter demonstrated these speakers to me at his premises they were just on the floor with very little toe in.

My speakers, with ready made cabinets, just have a slightly larger 'foot' added...

Re: Punchy bass

I am going to defend these speakers as I really love them and they were only bought after an hour with Peter demonstrating them with his big band music and fed by WD amps.

Mine are in a small room...

Re: Punchy bass

I had a 21SE on trial a few years back and found it a little 'bland' with my 25's. It did not seem to live up to what the reviews said but was well built - maybe it didn't like my Partington stand as...

Re: WD Phono II help

Thanks very much for those very clear instructions Bob and for pointing out it is a III unit and not a II - so I assume the remaining power and pre will also be III versions?

Re: Making speaker cabinets

Simon,
I started with the W25A standpoints and then 'upgraded' them to the floor models. Both were used in a small room and work really well when very near the back wall (in my opinion). I listened...

Re: Cartridge recommendations please.

Re: WD88 - Power / Integrated or something in between

Re: Phono 3 Cartridge Loading

Many thanks for the replies. I do have the full build documentation and the query was more related to a lack of understanding of the settings and their impact.

The 25T are designed to sit very close to a rear wall and so there is no problem in them being sited as you describe. I started with the 25A's is a small room only 3m across and then built them into...
