Have to say, compared to those, the comparable Tannoys, Genelecs, Mackies, KRKs, etc., the Adams A7x crushed all of them in almost every way using their setup..I didn't even think the other speakers were remotely up to par with my HD800 rig tbh. The Adams were and then some. Definitely worth the money to me.
the Adams also have the amp!
A7x could be better, but A3x and A5x sound almost the same to me, minus bass ofcourse.For Yggy (Gumby?) level dac i'd go for something more resolving than A series Adam. Still they are much better than entry level Mackies, thus imo better value.
Any stand recommendations from people here? I'm considering Isoacoustics stands at the moment.
It is better.What's more resolving than the A7x for the same money? I haven't heard it yet.
Today I got to try out the LS50s at Park Avenue Audio.600 sq ft roomSome sort of Elektra cd player > McIntosh D100 > Classe SIGMA-AMP2 > LS50I thought that while the setup was good, it wasn't amazing considering the cost of the whole setup. It was my first time hearing any of these components, so it's hard to said what contributed to what. Plus, I was unfamiliar with all the music that was played except for Dire Strait's "Once Upon a Time in the West". I found that the LS50s had pretty good imaging and soundstaging inside the room. Treble wasn't as bright as some reviews make them out to be. Bass was kind of boomy for some reason. It had extension, but wasn't as tight as i'd hope. Dynamics were overall very good. Does anyone share my experience? Anyone tried the D100 or Classe amp before?Hopefully I can try them again some other time with some familiar music and my own amp/dac if I can bring it in sometime. Maybe I'm just really used to the qualities that the Yggy brings to speakers and thus didn't find the LS50 setup overall amazing even though everything was pricier.
