O.K., I've had some of the best of the best...but, sometimes, I remember the DQ-10's as being my romantic-sonic bliss.
What would one do with good electronics and an analog (or two) and digital source to have a modern version of that Dahlquist sound? Some will say Vandy 3a sigs, others Alon, others Thiel...but any real-time comparisons to the DQ-10?
EIther what Elgordo recommends OR another pair of open baffle speakers (with stereo subwoofer). The DQ-10 had an open mid-range if memory serves... great sounding speaker (if that's the one I mean -- getting old)!
BTW, my last pair of DQ-10s (I've owned five pair since '76) are alive and well in my daughter's system, along with a PSB subwoofer. Whatjd - If you decide to buy a pair and they are not mirror imaged or don't have the cap mod, email me and I'll help you out, if necessary. Don
