New loudspeakers inbound!
 
After exclusively listening to one speaker for over a decade, I've bought a pair of (new) loudspeakers...

Anyone want to hazard a guess as to what they are? :scratch2:

:D

Well you did mention you wanted a pair of Harbeths recently so they are probably of the “Harbethian” heritage? :D

If I have to guess, then my answer is a new pair of 30.2’s. :smoking:

BIngo!

Not "brand-new" per se, but used for only a few hours when first purchased and not used since, so I will have to continue running them in.

Silver Eucalyptus; will be here a week from today, the 15th.

Thanks, Serge!

I'm pretty excited; I think they will be wonderful in my C-J system, and perfect for my small listening space.

Sounds like a winning combination to me. They love tubes as well as SS. Their impedance is rather flat and tube friendly. I had my pair setup in a very small room at first and they sounded ok but not great as they do couple to nearby walls like any other speaker and need a bit of space to breathe. In the big room they came alive and sounded much more open and balanced. I don’t think your room will be a challenge if you had success with other speakers, they are not particularly finicky that way. :no:

Yes, I've heard that they are very easy with respect to setup and not at all finicky with respect to cables and electronics. If I can my big Dyns in this space, I'm sure Harbeths will be just fine.
