Cube 1s & 3s / Harbeth P3ESR / Usher S520 + ??? Durham

Unread post by savvypaul » Sun Aug 13, 2017 12:34 pm

My Harbeths are going on ebay when everyone gets 'back to school' and the nights start drawing in.

Anyone interested in a bit of a speaker bake off - NVA Cube 1s & 3s / Harbeth P3ESR / Usher S520 + whatever you want to bring?

The rest of the system is in my sig.

Small room, so max 4 people. A few miles west of Durham City.

Some time in September. A Saturday, most likely.

I might be able to make it Paul (dependent on the date). As it's a small room, I could bring my Elac 510s.

Cool. They are interesting.

9th or 23rd Sept look favourites...

Hi Paul
I've been away from the forum for quite a while. Had a really difficult work related problem that has tested my faith in basic decency for several weeks but coming through it now.
My Neat motive 3's are compact but full sounding and lots of fun and Id like to give them a run out. Also got some doc modded Goodman magnums if you have a forklift truck handy.

Hi Trevor. Never heard Neats so that would be cool. Would love to hear the Magnums. Quite a small room so don't know if it would do them justice>

Hi Paul
The neats are great in a small room. Leave the goodman's for another time.

Hi Fella,

Is there still room at the Inn? I'd like to attend and would bring my ProAc D15's up with me. Would love to hear the NVA amps through them and we use the same dac so almost a perfect playing field :)

LMK

Chris
