    M12 Gold Switch

    Thanks. I'll keep reading through that thread. I didn't yet see a direct comparison to the Mutec-clocked SOTM and EtherRegen, per se...it seems that the ones I read don't seem to mention an external clock...I feel that the external clock makes a significant difference with that "stack" which...

    M12 Gold Switch

    Oh sorry, and a third question: For those with existing switches (like the SOTM, EtherRegen, etc.), were you able to find stacked configs with them and the M12 that improved things, or did you prefer the sound without those additional switches in the chain?

    M12 Gold Switch

    Reviving this thread a bit. I listen to about 98% of my music streamed through Tidal/Qobuz using Roon. My current network is a SOTM switch feeding optically an EtherRegen, both clocked with a Mutec Ref 10 and powered via good linear power supplies. I'm using a mix of Sablon 2020, SOTM and...

    Solid state amp to drive field coil woofers? Thoughts?

    So i just tried to do a little more research...the power supply was built to go to 5A, but we don't think the speaker is drawing that much. My guess is it's closer to the 1.5A that yours does. I don't hear as much change in tone, per se, but the volume is a little louder, and it feels a little...

    Solid state amp to drive field coil woofers? Thoughts?

    how many powers supplies do you have, and are they all the same? I have one solid state for the woofers, and one tube hybrid for the full-range--they are customized for each driver type by Radu Tarta did you compare different power supplies. in an earlier pair of Rullits, there were hospital...

    Home made field coil speakers.

    I should add: The Classic Audio Loudspeaker Hartsfields were the most emotionally engaging speaker I had ever personally heard. While very expensive in their own right, I have heard much more expensive speakers and systems and been always much less impressed. My aural memory of the half-day I...

    Home made field coil speakers.

    We are in agreement. There are Alnico speakers that I am sure sound better than more poorly implemented field coils, for sure. I'm also a big Alnico fan! Love my 604Es! But I think somewhere someone has converted 604s to field-coil! I feel your pain on the full-range driver dilemmas and how...

    Solid state amp to drive field coil woofers? Thoughts?

    Ralph, thanks for the post. I actually own your M60 3.3s, but have been running them in another system. I will definitely pull them out and give them a try here on these woofers...Rich (who built these speakers) actually suggested the same thing to me this past weekend while I was out of town...

    Solid state amp to drive field coil woofers? Thoughts?

    No, I'm not, but super interested to read about them. Would love to hear what you think of them if you get a chance to hear them. That's considerably higher $ price point that I'm capable of!

    Home made field coil speakers.

    My Druid 6s definitely enjoyed some distance from the walls in the 3 rooms I had them in as well. I ultimately had them 6.5' off the back wall and about 12' from either side wall in the end, and that's how they sounded the best. My first set of open baffles ended up in about the same spot, and...

    Home made field coil speakers.

    I still love the Zu sound, btw, and I think they are moving toward a really great, even higher-end set of models to keep a bigger set of customers into high-efficiency options. It's exciting to see, and I'm a big fan of what they are doing for all ends of the cost spectrum. I most recently...

    Home made field coil speakers.

    All-- Super cool thread. I have two stereo pairs and a mono (5 total speakers) based off of full-range field coils. All of my main drivers are Rullits (3 different levels), and on my primary pair of speakers I also have field coil woofers from Supravox. So I guess I have 7 field coil drivers...

    Solid state amp to drive field coil woofers? Thoughts?

    Thanks, sorry the photos weren't great--I had trouble uploading a couple others for some reason. Treehaus is a relatively new brand, yeah. I don't even think he has a site up yet...but I have contact info for him obviously if you were interested in contacting him. I met Rich (the...

    Here are some quick photos of the setup...speakers and FC power supplies.

    Solid state amp to drive field coil woofers? Thoughts?

    I worried about that with the open baffles as well, but they don't have any perceptible speed concerns at all...if anything, I would say that they sound even quicker than previous setups I've owned. I can't prove this, but I think the field coil setup, when properly done and powered...
