After a year and a half of many ups and downs in my life, which in the process i moved to a new home...
i was thinking to get myself a new Audiophile experience\episode. something id never thought i could, not in a very long time before i moved out.
at my old house i was listening and build my System for along time in a very small room. always looked for sealed box or down/front firing port speakers to worked (more or less) in my listening room.
always dreamt about a large living room which i could put my trusty equipment and speakers, surround myself with LPs walls. and enjoying music at the fullest.
The most important point of my dream was, to get speakers that will be the center of the room without thinking about ports\sizes or WAF.... (not I've dealt with that in my room though).
Now when i have the living room at my new house to get "crazy" (my new wife is an amazing person, that share my love to music and audio... ) i decided to get deep in to an adventure...with her blessing.
after contemplate about several speakers that meet my budget... we both "landed" on the Universum mkIV.
with the help of Christoph and Bonzo75 , to say their name for their BIG HELP (thanks again guys!!! ) among others iv'e talked to, in the last few weeks.
and with local hORNS dealer that sadly could't demo it for us (he don't have it, but some other speakers of their line) but did everything he can to get us answers, contact us with PPL around the world, and with designer and owner of hORNS himself on the phone... we finally decided to order a pair for us (no pun intended). i myself heard the Universum a couple of times years ago, at the Munich and Warsaw shows they exhibits. always drown to their presence... i wrote to myself the first time i listen to them in 2012, they were the most delicate sounding horns i ever heard, their looks are a matter of taste like any horns out there, and i LOVE It,
i just hope they will perform and will give that extra dynamic and LIVE feeling v.s my Magico Q3.
btw i probably will keep the Q3 for now.
its been a week since we ordered it, it took us 3 days to decide about the paint job we wanted, but finally it was done.
now, we have to wait about 5-6 weeks to deliver... and i started about thinking - S.E.T amps - to complete the Magic
another "episode" i assume will be in the Horizon when they will landed in our LR..
glad to share my excitement with you good folks, always felt that WBF is home (although i write as little as possible not showing my lack of expression abilities in english )
more to come when we get them in house, i will appreciate any help or comments regarding.
