Trio15 Coax in Alaska

Hi Ze’ev,

It’s taken me awhile to settle into my new PureAudioProject Trio Coax speakers. . . but I am really satisfied with my current set up! (Thanks for the Face Time call – it all got sorted and I ultimately landed on the stock resistor values! ;).

I‘ve enjoyed a nice custom pair of speakers with RAAL ribbons, Accuton mid drivers, and PHL 12” bass drivers for years. . . (among many other commercial offerings) but always missed the dynamic impact of percussive instruments (of course including piano) with many music genres including jazz, electronic, chamber, Latin, hard rock and beyond. . . so I want my system to do everything really well (clearly nothing new)! Okay but better than “really well” – emotionally transportive!

. . . I do have a pair of Rythmik Audio 12” servo controlled subs with one shown in the pic (not really needed but I’m still experimenting). . . My electronics are highly modded kits which I love but there is the challenge (for me) of owning and loving “zero negative feedback” tube designs and wanting for (a bit more) damping factor! (that costly lunch cliche again). . .

So I’ve used the autoformers for years using only the 1.3x setting to just put a bit more “form” around the bass. . . tonally speaking.  The recording “Pepe and the Bottle Blondes: Late Night Betty” is an off shoot of Pink Martini and is a fully embodied listening experience but the PAP Trios really brought the full dynamics of this recording to life – Just fabulous! (timbre, balance, presence, rhythm and pace, dynamics/visceral impact, etc.)

. . . anyway, from – Philip Glass, Beats Antique, Chopin, Clifford Brown, Max Roach, Booker Ervin, Sarah Vaughan, Ojos de Brujo, Jessica Williams, Tape Five, The Grassy Knoll, to Tool – I’m having a fabulous time listening (we have a short summer in Alaska so I’m not supposed to be inside listening this much until winter) and many of my music loving friends have enthusiastically approved of my new audio related acquisition!!!

(I have a small contingent of friends that come over from what started with a “Jazz: The Smithsonian Anthology” listening/study project to an excuse (as though we needed one) to get together to eat, drink and listen . . .)

True Confessions (Trio15 Horn1)

Dear Ze’ev

It overworks the liver as the detoxification process cannot match the viagra tablets in india pace of blood purification. The online course can be pursued try this buying viagra from india from anywhere at any time. This penis gets india generic cialis strength and stamina of his erections? There are numerous ointments, pumps and devices assuring to pump up your volume. These courses are have a peek here levitra no prescription broken into different modules that cover the various aspects of California law that relates to driving.

Suddenly I realized, audition time must be over by now, and I wasn’t sharp on its start either. So I guess I owe you some confessions and observations. First of all, you will not get these great speakers back. (bluntly breaking the ice….;-)

First confession

I had the impression that I was used to quite a wide and deep soundspace. That appeared to be a false impression. These speakers really can take you into an envelope of sound. Depending on the sound-engineer’s mastering, some recordings let you perceive sound from an angle of about 70 degrees on either side of the center, the more conventional recordings give you tunnel-deep perception. I mean from the front to the back, very deep.

Second confession

I thought that my room was acoustically difficult to tame. Having spent months studying on acoustics, theorizing, measuring and experimenting with damping material appeared to be a waste of time. These speakers just need distance from the walls and when placed relatively close (2½-3m or so) to the listening position ‘and’ are well broken in, you have nothing to wish for. No need for damping or bass traps anymore.

Third confession

At first I thought open baffle bass production was an illusion compared to a well designed Transmission line speaker that I used to have. This impression appears to be false as well. During the four weeks these woofers became better and better. In fact the whole breaking in seems to be much longer than I thought, Over time I notice improvements even still after an estimated 350 hours or so. This yields for the horns as well.
This brings me to wonder how on earth you could develop a speaker like this, when it takes a month before you can hear the end result? Either you must have had highly valid predictive skill or lots of patience and perseverance. Maybe both.

Fourth confession

These horns are rather addictive! As most of us work from our homes these days, so am I. I have to confess that an audio supported lunch break can easily result in forgetting to lunch. (with the consequence that you have to work until late in the night to get your targets done 🙂

Observation one

Although I own Class D mono amps which distortion-wise perform hundreds of times better than my kt77 push pull VanderVeen UL40S-Power amp, the latter has not been disconnected from the set for the last two or three weeks. These speakers seem to be an excellent match for this amplifier.

Observation two

I’ve always noticed some degree of improvement between the start and the end of the first side of vinyl. These speakers make it clear that the improvement starts between 5 and 10 minutes after which apparently the needle’s suspension, the cartridge or preamp have warmed up.

Observation three

I thought the configuration of my set had settled after the years. Well, these speakers gradually made it clear that shortening inerconnects, even high quality,  have a big effect. So my house is in a mess now, rewiring, re configuring, thinking over a HiFi rack for instance, even the car battery, which feeds the DAC, has found temporary asylum in my living. And although female intervention in electronics associated decoration is history for years now, my aim is to resettle again as soon as possible. (even I have my limits 🙂
So cheers to you Ze’ev! I had my reservation, shooting savings into the stratosphere and expecting some rain after – guess what? I got torrential HiFi rain making me happy every day!
