What after Aleph 3, need more juice?
A quick note to agree with Kkursula, the Living voice range are wonderful, sensitive, musical speakers. I'd go for the Avatars, cheaper, more room friendly and I prefer the sound. They sound magical with my Aleph 3 and Graaf pre 
Need some help deciding on Living Voice speakers
Hi, I'm a great fan of Living Voice speakers which are a steal at the price. I'll qualify that, the Auditoriums are good, but not exceptional. They do'nt have a clean response right through the audio spectrum and are a little base light. Both the ... 
Shanling T100 Tubes
In most respects valve(sorry tubes)/solid state and straight/upsampling is different not clearly better. I have upgraded to Sovtek not WE valves believe it or not the WE936A cost arround £400 in the UK and the Russian valves are better and make th... 
Review: Acoustic Zen Hologram II Speaker cable
Following my earlier input, I've now aquired 2 metres of Hologram 1 mono wires. They do'nt come up much in the UK, so I grabbed them when I could. Good? absolutely,the detail and base are great. What really struck me was that they made music more ... 
Music you might have missed
A contribution from over the pond and forgive me if "Blue Nile" are familiar to you. A band discovered, used for Linn's early recordings. They only made 3 recordings and all are sublime, atmospheric, melancholic productions with great musicianship... 
Review: Shanling CD-T100 CD Player
A question more than a review, I am enjoying my unmodified Shanling enormously. If that is because my system is defficient, so be it. The digital glare is gone and the midrange is great. It fits into my,shall I say, laid back system beautifully; L... 
Review: Acoustic Zen Hologram II Speaker cable
Guys thanks for a very informative chat. I'm looking for a rewire and after placing a thread on the cables discussion forum, Acoustic Zen came up strongly, both for interconnects and speaker wires. I was planning a single run to my Living Voice Av... 
Which tube friendly speaker?
Auditoriums for me too, Built for tubes, they sound great with the class Pass lab Aleph 3's too. Good sounstage, dynamic a good base, if not without a little colouration. They just sound good and make all genres of music sound good. You can buy an... 
Looking for comments on Living Voice Avatar spkrs
I have to agree with Joe Stereo, fine speakers for all musical genres. They are detailed but not in a fatiguing way, dynamic and make music a joy to listen too. They were built by a tube fanatic for tubes, but I do'nt see it. I've listened to the ... 
Living Voice Auditorium spkrs comments requested
Greetings from over the pond.I've heard the OBX and use Auditoriums myself. I would say there is a House sound but very clear differences. They produce a good sounstage a good tone and dynamics. The weakness is the base, or upper base in the Audit... 
Good speakers for Pass Aleph 3?
A comment from over the pond,I love my Aleph 3's as well,but like you am aware of the power limitations. It's not the most origonal comment,but there are Watt's and there are Watt's.The Aleph 3 may not have double the power attributed to valve wat...

Thanks for your reviews guys,I have recently bought an un-modded CDT 100,it certainly is all it's reviews promise.I'm tempted to go for the mod,but it's not a simple matter from over the pond in the U.K.Has anyone had a cooking version and sent it...
