What speakers are those?

post #11600 of 19051
They are Orca Fullrange speakers from Blumenstein Audio, and make very sweet music despite their small size.

I've always been intrigued by the full-range Fostex designs, combined with low-wattage SET tube amps. I'm at the complete other end of the spectrum with power-hungry Maggies. Did someone say big, solid state amps? biggrin.gif

Have you ever compared them to another speaker? If not, how would you describe their sound? I've always been interested in them..

Get a sexy tube preamp for those Maggies. :D

 

I did the same thing. Had Maggies and big ol' mono blocks. Planned to go to full range SET, ended up in the middle. 3 way Harbeths with a push pull tube amp.

EDIT: Oh man, I want some of those Orcas for my mini system. Those things look great.

Old shot of a He-500 which I get rid of rather quickly

What are you driving the HE-6 with? Can't really see in the back.

Sorry for my crappy photography skills tongue.gif.

 

It's just a small t-amp (Topping Tp60), I'll probably change to a bigger speaker amp once I move to a new house.

Just got my Lyr...ran some quick comparisons between my modded EF-5 (OP627x2 + RCA Clear Top) and the Lyr (GE tubes) with my HE-500.

 

Some key findings:

- Lyr has slightly larger soundstage

- Lyr has more "attack"

- Mids are slightly smoother in the EF-5 however still amazing on the Lyr

- EF-5 sounds more intimate where as the Lyr sounds more further away

- Both fantastic amps with their own strengths...however SLIGHT advantage towards the Lyr. Love them both but will be letting go of my EF-5.

Thanks for those impressions :) I've been looking at both amps.
