I totally agree with your description of these beauties - detailed and balanced across the full spectrum- very accurate. And yes, the soundstage is very good, but I too think they might open up a little more over time with more break-in.

I think I will wait and roll them into the Liquid Glass to try them with the LCD-3's (better match with the LCD's).

Need to listen more, but these will place high on my list.

More later!

Yeah !!!!

That made my day.

 

I only own LCD2's so that's my sphere of influence.

You will be more amazed if they morph into the 65's

I'm thinking ... yup

 

A buck fifty is a steal for something that sounds like that.

 

Let me put it this way.....

$70 for OG's is a big move up from stock.

An additional $70 for these is the same elevator ride up .... sonic goodness.... from OG's

 

My 2 cents.

My ears.  And they are old ears at that.

Hey Noobs out there.

 

Grab a pair of the Lorenz SEL (Yugo)  It's an awesome set of glass for $45

I'm upset one is microphonic. With headphones I'm hoping that doesn't trigger feedback. Doesn't seem to.

 

Are they NOS?  Maybe the microphonics will improve with time.  Do you have dampeners installed?

I'd love to get a pair of the Siemens & Halske CCa, but they're unobtanium!  When you can find them they're really pricey...  and they're so hard to find!

1965 and 1967

 

Now I can compare them and hope the 65's are as good as I remember.

The 67's from This Listing are appear flawless. Let's hope they have the voice to match.

The seller has more.

I will let you know what I think.

 

 

 

 

OK, now I'm really interested.  What's the exact part number?  I need details...

Nev,

 

This is the exact place Scott and I purchased from.

I can't believe they have so many, but they are the real Magilla.

 

RTC Listing

 

They really shouldn't be anything special.

Amperex plant, Heerlen Netherlands, Gold Pin, Large halo getter.

Not unlike a USN-CEP.

 

I'm here to tell ya, they sound a lot better than USN-CEP.

 

IMO  IMO   IMO

 

If I didn't think that, I wouldn't have sold some..... D getters, and some ....

post #6802 of 8735

Wait for more of Scott's review.

 

I don't want to be "The Guy"

OK, I have a pair on the way.  I'm really curious to hear them now.  The sad thing is I'll prolly be out of town when they get here...

Now I'm nervous again.

 

I feel responsible for this.
