    Blumenstein...those look lovely @shaizada, what an interesting line of speakers Blumenstein have, never heard of them. Affordable as well. They sell their full range drivers for $50, I'm tempted to buy two to do a DIY version.

    Oh absolutely. He uses Fostex drivers but the sound he gets out of them is something truly special. Old wood working techniques, but the sound is a combination of his special cabinets and the driver.

    Unless he is modding the drivers, I would just get them from Madisound.

    pretty unimpressive and not enough space for the speakers, I know, but here's my bedroom pc setup. speakers soon to be replaced by philharmonitor 2 way with raal. home theatre setup is really just for movies so I'm not showing it, though it has kef q900 towers and an svs subwoofer

    The ones you have is the Orca's? Have you heard any of the line.


    Very interested in these as a desktop set up.

    I've had a few in my small but dedicated room, we start with my Tannoy Compaqt Monitor (compaqt by Tannoy standards)

    [​IMG]

    A while with 4430 JBL speakers

    [​IMG]

    Then my ATC SCM 100 A

    My current speakers are these small Tannoy monitors, used in a recording studio for many years.

    Hey Bud,

    The pictures above are of a discontinued speaker called the Naga.

    I also own a pair of the Orcas. The Blumenstein speakers are a very organic, natural, perfect point source imaging kind of speakers. Music is released in a very unforced, beautiful manner. Instrument tonality feels spot on. To me, they are a mid field to near field kind of listening speaker. Add the matched Blumenstein sub and it is extremely satisfying. The magic of the sound is really in the combination of the driver and more importantly the speaker cabinet.

    Thank you! :)

    The sources are Marantz SA8005 which connects to a BiMB (and to the preamp directly), and a Marantz TT-15S1. The preamp is a Dynaco Pass4 (with updated caps). The amp is a SE 300B amp that we inherited and which I worked on slowly refurbishing over the course of a year and a half. The other amp (the one with the cage) is a 211 amp, but it's disconnected. The small black box on the floor is a step-down isolation transformer for the amps since they have 100V transformers.

    These are my favorite speakers - Dunlavy SC-IV. I'm on my second pair (with a pair of Dunlavy SC-V in between).

    For those who haven't hear a properly setup set, the closest headphone comparison would be K702. Likely, other folks would be inclined to compare them to HD800, but I don't think the Sennheisers are as good.

    BTW, the pic isn't mine.

    How do the Naga's compare to the Orcas? Does the bass go much deeper for the Nagas?

    Well, the Naga's start rolling off around 80 cycles. So they are augmented with bass drivers below that (not really subwoofers). The Orca's can be bought with and without the subwoofer. The complete package is really well rounded out. I feel it is more important to first see if the presentation of this kind of sound / driver is something you would even like to begin with.
