Horn Porn in Sauerkraut sauce






... with some American spices...

I really do not blame too much on the RCA MI-9485 mids, nor on the vomited-like, Crocodile Dundee-hinted x-over nightmare or the (Tannoy, JBL's?!?!) highs or the possibly non-original woofers and mid-horns (Altec, Vitavox'?)... as the shape of those large Siemens' baffles is so sexy they stand to these abuses quite well, and I can't resist in showing and (visually) reporting as plain, no brainer "horn porn".

I listened to such a system only once in my life: all original, Siemens' drivers and KL-405s woofers and x-overs and it was very pleasant and natural sounding, with no exagerated soundstage, as I remember my feeling: very "thick", true-to-life sound.

In this case, I guess and argue - as someone at Roman's (thanks...) site also pointed it out - the room looks, at least, far better than the system...

... but - as who am I to "judge"?;-) - I wish and trust the owner enjoys.
