I'm pretty sure we've been here before. :)

I'm off to listen to some L.E.D Zeppelin.

Was just thinking about finding my Zepplin CDs last night actually
when I upgraded the amplification on my stereo. Funny how an
improvement in sound quality makes you want to listen to old
favourites.

There are pros and cons to doing that,

Yeah, see my previous reply in this thread. I've been dissapointed with a
couple of CDs lately that I've always really liked but, with mostly
transapent playback gear and plenty of power sound lacking.

but I generally agree. I was
never particularly impressed with the sound quality of Led Zepp's
recordings though, TBH. Page's guitar in particular sounds thin and
reedy. OTOH, my go-to LZ album is Physical Graffiti... love it.

Physical Graffiti *is* great. (Damn now I'm going to have to dig that out
and have a listen. Wink )


I'm overdue for a listen too, maybe later this arvo...

What gives me the shits with many modern recordings is that they're so
bass-heavy, which on my system has me running for the tone controls

old) actually sucks on a good system.

I freakin' hate that too! Especially as I've been mostly listening using my
'new' amplification using a very basic preamp that only has a volume
control. Luckilly there are very few albums that I like that were made later
than the early 90s so I've just been ignoring those for now.

I'm pleased though that at least now it *is* the house and wondows that
suffer rather than my speakers. I recently bought a pair of Sony SSK70EDs
that handle pretty much everything I can throw at them, sound clean and
clear and image like nothing I've heard costing under $10K.


Nice, I am not familiar with those but they look the goods and have
positive reviews.

I'd managed to get some SSK90EDs. These are very under-rated speakers. Sony
made them in a vain effort to illustrate to the public the improvements that
SACDs bought to the table over standard CDs. Unfortunately for Sony the
public were moving in the opposite direction, going for pocket-sized music
and 'fidelity' so the speakers were discontinued (except in Japan where they
still make a piano finish version of the SSK range).


The stuff available only in Japan is mind blowing, both new and old
gear.

They're by far the best speakers I've heard - and that's saying something
as, before I became an invalid I was reasonably well off and audio was my
passion.

I had a good look indside them when I turned the drivers 180║ after I bought
them (second-hand). They're very thick MDF with the interior coated in a
black rubberised sealant stuff.. Also there are shaped braces inside a bit
like the frames you'd see in a boat only cut from 25mm MDF.

They're basically two speakers using the same cabinet. The top is a ~25l
acoustic suspension enclosure with the (sealed back) 25mm carbon dome
tweeter and one brace above the 160mm kevlar cone mid / bass driver filled
with dacron 'wool'. There's a thick MDF seperator then the bottom chamber is
bass reflex system for the 160mm kevlar reinforced paper cone woofer. The 18
dB / octave cross-over is mounted on the bottom of the partition and there
are three braces in the lower part and it's lined with 40mm thick foam (as
well as the black coating). They're almost like a large 2-way and integrated
subwooferand they're *very* well made.

I saw a set of 2 x K90EDs, 2 x K30EDs and another CNK10ED listed for auction
last week with a start price of $1K. The 90s are the same as the 70s only
taller with a second (sub)woofer and go down a few Hz lower. The numbers
[70, 90 etc.] are volume in litres. It didn't make it's reserve but if they
weren't ~600km away I would have been sorely tempted to get my credit card
out, then if the 90s are as good as I think they will be, selling my 70s to
recoup some of the cost.

Heh! That said I'm quite happy with the SS-K70EDs.

I know right? There must be a lot of very serious audiophiles in Japan
that's for sure.
