Dave,
thanks for your comments, and I can only say that if only all loudspeaker buyers were the same as you, then likewise the world would improve..
 
Thanks for offering the handwritten type of letter, I will scan it in, cover up personal information, and be able to put it on the site.
The most valuable thing I can think of, is if what changed your perception of the product from 'joke' to 'fairly claiming to be the worlds best'
 
anyway you've given me another lovely experience of hard work, risk and dedication to talk about and remember.
 
with your system, you may well have the best hifi in the world now.
Nick

Hi Nick,
 
Thanks for the excellent speakers. The more I listen, the more I'm amazed. I love the Equalizer as well -what a great toy!. I have also found that it's not always needed !
 
I'll send you a nice e-letter when I have more time, and you can use it for marketing purposes. I really am made up with these beautiful speakers. They are just what I wanted - something special for a sensible price. The fact that inferior, mass-produced (should reduce costs) speakers are sold for more than yours, shows they are excellent VFM.
 
Thanks again for delivering them with no charge. The country needs more of this kind of hi-fi - honest, state-of-the-art, no-compromise, affordable designs backed by full technical explanations and great service. Bull and marketing hype are short-term marketing tactics - your honesty and quality product are destined to succeed in a big way. Hi-fi should sell itself, and yours clearly does. Superb, hi-end hi-fi doesn't have to cost the earth. Keep up the good work !
 
"Be the best" should be the motto of all hi-end hi-fi manufacturers in my opinion.
 
Bye 4 now,
 
Dave

Just had an idea - Musical Fidelity have made loudspeakers, and they seem to have a great attitude and must appreciate your situation as that's how they started. Have you considered approaching their boss with a view to a joint sales/development effort ? If their name was linked to your speakers, surely the shops would have to listen and stock them then !!

Thanks for the map,
looking forward to it, would be nice to leave with cleared funds for the delivery(cash) as you offered, in spite of that program we both saw (apparently the metal bars were printed instead of sewn)
I will give you a printed invoice/receipt i will bring with me, and we will both have a signed copy before i leave.
cheque will be ok if that is difficult, i am sure i can trust you.
 
would you let me have your telephone / mobile number so i can keep you informed of my ETA on the day.
mine are 01202 487464 [censored]

btw my friend from the Wirral was:

Dave,
I just heard from the patent office that the meeting is ok next week, and so we have arranged it for 11am Tue 21st June in Newport, so that would provide an opportunity to arrive in the Wirral between 5 and 8pm, depending on how long the meeting lasts; I can move the day Mon/Wed/Thu, or arrange to see you on a separate day if this is going to be difficult for you?

Nick,
 
That's fine - if you are happy to visit, I would be pleased to make you some tea if you wanted - I make great curries !!. I would take the day off to be ready for you. I could pay cash if happy (more than likely) but after seeing a program about fake bank notes, maybe a different payment is more desirable ?!.
 
The model I would prefer is the one you have tried to sell on ebay - the reddish mahogany? coated ones ? I think they look beautiful. And biwireable please.
 
I think guys like yourself trying to sell a genuinely novel and high quality product that you have no doubt invested considerable time and money in, deserve all the luck in the world.
 
Cheers,
Dave.

Dave, that is correct
I have not fixed a date yet with the patent office yet, but it should be this month, they are ringing me next week to fix it and let you know as soon as i do. The idea is to do both trips in one day, which would prob mean hitting Newport at 1-2pm, and getting to Wirral after you finished work at say between 5-7pm, i would have to leave say 8pm latest in order to make the 260 mile journey home before midnight.
Alternately, as i say, you can buy a pair plus shipping to your address via city link for £40, and if you arent satisfied, return them within 14 days, and as long as they are still in perfect condition, will get a 90% refund - that gives you a lot longer to play with them than the few hours I could deliver personally, although i strongly recc you try the digital equaliser i offer if you cant boost bass on your amp, or in your case want to build the ultimate systemand are not worried about annoying the neighbours with the pure low bass it will give you, that amplifiers chop off.
check it out on the accesories/ordering pages.

Nick,
 
This all sounds good ! I'm really looking forward to hearing them.
 
I like the idea of you bringing them to me to try. So what you are saying is either 1) I buy them for £1200 [note from webmaster/censor - 2006 price includes equalizer etc@£1950] after the demo or 2) I don't buy them and pay you £100 for the service/demo ?
 
If that's the deal, you got one !
 
Cheers,
Dave.
 
PS. I might phone later - I'm at work now.

hi,
since there is only one drive unit there is no need for a circuit. Since this unit has 3 cones, it sepeartes the frequencies by design of the 3 cones weight, bandwidth etc (T-S parameters), and means that they separate by design rather than electronically - cool eh!, and i have modified them just a little bit better than the original units, but that's a secret. there is, as always, a small capacitor behind the tweeter, that's job is merely to prevent the tweeters getting VLF whch would blow them. If you want to split hairs, then any drive unit that has a wound, inertial or capacitative properties introduces (all transducers?) crossover effects, and thus it could be argued that having two cone coils connected in any way will be a crossover 'circuit'. The sensible meaning here is that rather than having to limit the magnitude of certain frequencies applied to the cones, instead these cones are designed and manufactured as a set to augment each other automatically. If you didnt have the DC blocking capacitor, then the 'power spike/bump' some amps make when turned on cold would blow the low current coil in the tweeters.
 
I expect you are right about the amps, have you tried Gaincard amps(such as 47 labs), I hear they cost only tenners to make, but beat £6000 top jap tube amps. I heard one (pics on site) and i was impressed how little hiss there was.
 
The mono-wired version cannot allow bi-amping since there is only one pair of terminal posts.
 
wrt cables and amps; electronic distortion usually obeys the rule; distortion=power^3, i.e. high efficiency loudspeaker requiring 2W through cables and amp, would have distortion factor of 8, then normal loudspeaker requiring 8W to produce same bass levels, would distort 8^3=512. i.e 64 times more distortion than high efficiency loudspeaker.
 
Question is which is best to get the same low distortion system; 1 buy the resolutions and normal speaker cable or 2 buy low efficiency loudspeakers and have to find an amplifier/cables set that is 64 times less distortion than the normal stuff.
vis-a-vis the amplier and cabling improvements over std kit is insignifficant compared to the advances in efficiency of this loudspeaker!
 
this does not mean they wont make a big difference on an normal loudspeaker as you say
 
you will be most welcome to enjoy the demo room facilities, compare your own gear, whatever you want within reason.
 
If you are worrying about the £80 petrol, consider the £2,000 I paid just to take them to the Bristol show, so all the press and visitors could hear them, and I wasnt allowed to sell anything there, to cover the expense.
 
I can certainly provide a pair on a sale or return basis, which works out to £200 both ways delivery/reurn incl 10% handling fee. This is the best I can offer but it would save a whole dreadful days driving as well as the petrol and expenses. I have done this twice this year and both times the customers stated they were over the moon, they have never been returned from a sale or return basis, and everyone that has ever wanted to buy new loudspeakers and had a pair of these in their home stated voluntarily that not only were they the most amazing loudspeakers they ever heard, but that they all had been trying to get their freinds to buy a pair too.
 
Only last week I had a letter from a Cardiff customer, stating exactly that, and it will be on the website next week when it is scanned in.
Today I visited a local customer (my first over 2 years ago) and his similar letter will be publicised too.
 
I am travelling to Newport in about 2 weeks to visit the patent office there for an hour or two to finalise my patent, and it might be possible to bring a pair to your house in the Wirral. (I used to have a best friend from the Wirral when I was in Plymouth studying) for the expenses/handling fee if you dont want them after the demo, or no extra charge if you do. This was the basis of the Cardiff buyer - he was going to pay £100 if i returned home with the loudspeakers after the demo, but after the demo and the 'near heart attack' it caused, I was paid cash there and then, and as I said, this week got a follow on thank you letter.
 
please call me to discuss anything further as it takes ages typing all this out, and you dont really feel people are really genuine till you talk a bit
 
Im out tonight 8pm till 10, but in all day tomorrow running the business from here.

You say there is no crossover circuitry within your speakers - how are the frequencies separated ?
 
Does the mono-wired version allow biamping ?
 
I suggest you try Musical Fidelity amps. I think they are like your company - superb products for a fair price. They have been shown to perform better than some products ten times costlier !
 
I think there has developed a huge industry ripping ppl off wrt cabling - but that doesn't mean they are not important and there are not "the best" cables. If they have an effect (clearly true), then there must be better and best (ie. those which add least "colour" to the sound and conform to KISS)...these are made by XLO electric IMO...they have won awards for the technology they employ, but they are not cheap unfortunately. I have 1st hand experience of the big difference they can make in a good system.
 
I am toying with the idea of visiting you to test your loudspeakers - I could bring along a set of XLO to show you, if you liked. If your speakers are better than my Missions, the difference should be obvious. Trouble is, it will cost me about £80 in petrol to visit !! I need to be confident I am not wasting my time.

hi,
i am not an expert on amps, mainly because the resolution is so efficient, particularly at low frequencies that the amp quality/arrangement makes relatively little difference.
 
1. Biamping has got to be a lot of trouble and expense, plus can you fins a suitably matched pair of amps for the job. I would assume biamping is really going to make e relatively small difference at high powers, again with inefficient loudspeakers, moving large masses it would be arguably worth it, but probably not for any H.E. loudspeaker. My gut feeling is it breaks the K.I.S.S. keep it simple stupid, philosophy, which preaches that to avoid distortion, you should avoid complexity/components and to do that, minimise losses. This is where the resolution comes from, and truly delivers - like nothing else; it's the only loudspeaker in the world that delivers full audio range from just one drive unit, with virtually no secondary sources from either ports, resonances or of course other drivers. furthermore there is no crossover circuitry or climbing inefficiency associated with woofers.
 
If active biamping refers to one amp driving an active crossover into separate drive units, you are going to lose a lot of fidelity from the miss-matched drivers/crossover overlap, and also from the inherent noise and complex distortion such crossovers introduce.
 
You realise of course that the resolution is the only loudspeaker in the world that has biwiring built into it, giving improved instrument separation and definition without external biwiring or biamping anyway. we also do a mono-wired version in case there are any customers who insist on that.
 
2. Class A is old and hissy compared to AB, it seems to colour the music a bit for me, particularly adding body and depth to the bass which isn't in the recording. you can detect the difference with headphones a bit. personally I like 'A' amps, but they are relatively inflexible as far as input selectors, power and style is concerned.
 
I simply don't believe any A class is better than the best other stuff, I tried a sugden A class, and a cheap old NAD 3020, the sugden made the room shake a bit more, but seemed to replace detail and tightness with colour and a bit of hiss at high volume imbetween tracks. Also it was a bit 'slow'. certainly a good A class requires a HE loudspeaker whatever, and that for most people with the price rules them out.
 
3. I think i covered the amps and speaker cables in 1.
 
btw you can never find pure audio reproduction from loudspeakers as the whole recording and mastering process is not geared to recording sources spaced and propagating as loudspeakers do, but there is a point you can reach where you close your eyes in the right setup, and it feels live. That - we can do, and I doubt any other loudspeaker can ever touch us for imaging, fidelity and detail.

Hi there,

I'm more than interested in your loudspeakers, but I have some question which you can hopefully answer....

http://sound.westhost.com/class-a.htm

1. This site above talks about bi (or tri)amping loudspeakers as a great thing to do. I'm Ok with that. But it then goes on about ACTIVELY biamping, as opposed to passively biamping. Do most speakers with 4 terminals allow active biamping, or does this require a separate active crossover ? Also, is active biamping the best system ?

2. He also claims the optimal system is to use a Class A amp for tweeters and a class AB amp for mid/woofer, to use each according to it's inherent strengths. Does this make sense to you ?

3. Are you a Musical Fidelity amplifier fan./convert ? They do seem to make the best value (& quality?) amps on the market.

http://www.musicalfidelity.com/mf/en/About/index

4. Have you tried XLO Electric cabling ? I have found it to be amazing, even though above website claims cabling is of little importance !

http://www.xloelectric.com/home.php



These look interesting as well...

I look forward to your reply and hope you can hlep me in my quest for pure, quality audio.

Thanks,
Dave.

If you would like to add your weight to the growing number of amazed listeners, please email us, or write - this is in fact a better and more genuine way to promote a good product and keep down the prices, than the alternative which is - frankly - to make it 10 times cheaper in the East; mass produce it with massive investment, and make up for the resulting build quality and sound quality losses, by publicising madly through high street dealers and magazine advertising/reviews.

Itís really impossible to keep this fantastic loudspeaker system so affordable to so many, without the publicised support of satisfied customers and show-goers.
