Who are you to say what one needs and doesn't need? Who needs a 50K car? Who needs a 500K house? Who needs a 25K motorcycle???? I could go on and on with this one......
Bottom line is that someone will always have a hobby/interest that they spend more money on than YOU think they should. So what? It's their money and their life, get over it and yourself.
Hi Fi Choice put it in their recommended system last month. They really, really like it. It is designed by the brilliant Michael Bladelius who got his start working for Threshold designing the groundbreaking Forte 4A. From there he went on to penning several excellent pieces for Primare, as well as doing contract work. The piece is hand crafted and it is hard to put a price on that. Many will pay extra for a Lamm amp or a piece from Scott Franklands Wavestream Kinetics, or many other marques that represent the best thinking and hand craftsmanship by a genius. After all that's what distinguishes a Van Gogh from a Thomas Kinkaide.
I would like to know how this player [Bladelius Gondul 3] stacks up against the APL Hi-Fi's modified Denon 3910 ?
Has anyone done the comparison ?
I am aware that the price points are not right.
15 K US $'s & 5 K US $'s but I would be interested in knowing the sonic attributes of each & also please do try and let me know the rest of the gear that was used in the chain while auditioning / testing both these products !!!
Hasse, 'very neutral' is how I would describe the 808 (or were you referring to the 800?). Did you have the Meridian in your chain and, if so, what is the rest of your system? I gave a good listen to the 808 prior to acquiring my Capitole and felt it was much more forward than the AA, so I'm wondering how the Gondul might sound in my system based on your reaction to the Meridian.
