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

We like Puerto De La Cruz in Tenerife and try to spend 4 to 6 weeks a year there. Often thought about moving but I guess age is against us now and anyway we would then have to find somewhere else to...

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?

Does anybody have a...

WD Phono II help

After about 10 years of storage I have have decided to either use or sell my WD Pre/phono/power units.

First I would like to try out the phono against my current unit (the inbuilt phono in a Quad...

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.

Didn't read carefully enough to spot you were looking at MC's. Still I do like the 1042.

Others I still have and like in price order (low to high) are

Re: Cartridge recommendations please.

I like the Goldring 1042 cartridge but the Grado Prestige range have had some good reviews recently and I noticed 2ndhandhifi are selling some 'ex display' ones at reduced prices so it could be worth...

Re: WD88 - Power / Integrated or something in between

Its not too late - the hifi shelf is now populated with a Quad Classic Integrated.

The 88 is still in the box awaiting some of my time (as it has been for too many years) but the Bonnie in the...

I have been doing some reading on horns and could be interested in building some but with so many designs I am not sure where to start. Currently I have a pair of WD25T's sited in a small room, close...

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.

I will go with the suggested 10:1...

Re: 25A or 25T

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...

Re: WD88 - Power / Integrated or something in between

Thanks for the responses. I guess the main question which I did not really make clear is does the separate pre-amp add any real sound benefit to the system or is the one in the WD88 integrated...

Re: WD25 - hard to drive ?

I tried my Unitiqute with my full height W25 speakers and there was definitely no lack of bass. Just don't forget the W25 is hardly a boom box speaker. The Naims are known for their bass and bass...
