Thanks for the heads up biliam, a gtg sounds like a lot of fun. Jax isn't too far, maybe combine it with a weekend away with my wife.

Central Massachusetts demo

It's been a while since I posted and there's been some upgrades, so I'll put it out there again.

I'm in central MA, so anyone wanting to come is welcome to ping me if you want to hear KEF speakers. Living room 5.1.2 system is R500/R200c/R100, SVS Sb2000, and R50 for Atmos Enabled. Feel free to bring your own DVD, up to 4K with Atmos. Powered solely by an NAD T758v3, with an LG UP875 Blu-Ray player.

For 2-channel near-field demo, it's a pair of LS50's paired with a KEF Kube 10b sub, driven by an NAD Masters M10 to stream Tidal HiFi and listen to the Project RPM-1 turntable with Ortofon 2M Red cartridge.

Looking for someone who has the Polk LSim 707 in the Philadelphia area. I am thinking of purchasing. Hell I will even buy you lunch for a demo. I currently have a 5.2 goldenear setup consisting of GoldenEar Triton 7s supersat 30s and super center xl. Front stage is driven by emotiva xpa100 monoblocks. I really want to upgrade to a punchier more impactful speaker and there is a great deal on the polks. If anyone is interested in the GoldenEar’s I would be more than happy to demo.

Golden Ear Triton's & 50C here, probably need another week or two to sound there best.

Hi folks,
I'm in the Rochester,NY area,and I recently picked up a gently used pair of Graham Chartwell LS3/5's. These are reproductions of the 1st BBC mini monitor. The second being the LS3/5A's. About 2 months ago I started to become fascinated with Harbeth,and particularly the P3esr's. Taking into consideration how much these are new,used would have to be the way for me to go. So,before laying out that kind of cash,I needed to get a feel for what these would sound like,in a more economical way. I did some research and came upon Spendor s3/5. Much more reasonably priced,but give me a taste of British mini monitors. I find a used pair very reasonably priced,and pull the trigger. Within the first 30 minutes of listening I was falling in love with this sound. The search for a used pair of Harbeths was under way.
Like others,I enjoy reading all things audio. Knowing a little about the background of the p3's,the ls3/5a's keep coming up. Now I'm VERY intrigued with the history of the BBC mini monitors. The price point of original ls3/5a's is out of reach with my fiscal limitations. So now I'm scouring the classifieds looking for used,affordable p3's, and used current ls3/5a's. I'm looking at the likes of Falcon,Stirling,Graham, and even Mistral. Low and behold,here is a pair of very nice Graham Chartwell LS3/5's, no"a" suffix. I figure if I cut back on food,I can afford them. I win the bid,and the speakers are mine!
They just arrived yesterday. I was able to get a good 8hrs of listening with them.WOW!!! Definitely true love! I now understand why people pay large sums for 40 yr old originals. These speakers are (to me) totally intoxicating. Just so natural across the board. I'm a big fan of 3D imaging. The Grahams check that box with a big fat sharpie!!
Anyways,if anyone is in the area,and would like to get ears on an audio legend,I would be happy to put you in my listening chair,and let you take the Graham Chartwell LS3/5's for a test drive.
Thanks for reading,
Ray
