It may just come true - funny that I suggested/started this thread - having no inside info.  It's just that I'Ve been shopping for speakers.

I hope a Bryston prototype tuns out.

I did a factory tour of Naim today and was really impressed with their speaker department, they make reasonably good speakers that won't break the bank, managed by a few people that doesn't take up much floor space within Naim, one thing that interested me though was that the cabinets are made in China which I thought would be a little risky, they actually have to send guys out to China before they are shipped to the UK to check them over first, they must be extremely cheap to produce out there.

Good luck though James, keep us posted, any possibility that PMC will import them over to the UK? I'm sure they wouldn't mind the competition, after all they do make their own amps now :wink:

Hi Vipers

Yes I have spent many years in this industry at many different levels and I  think i finally know what works for me in a reference speaker so it will certainly be a labour of love :thumb:

No turntables Stu - boy speakers are easy after turntables. :duh:

I am working with an engineer now and a speaker company that already exists so if I were to make the speaker available I do not have to create a speaker company (floor space, tooling etc.) . :thumb:

A Canadian company?

Looks like it could be a mod to a PSB speaker.   :scratch:

I've just spent today at Meridian James learning all about their Active speakers, after today I'm really starting to think that Active is the only way to go tbh, it just seem to make so much sense.

time & phase coherent ????

always had a strong liking for Thiel, Dunlavy, & Vandersteen.


"Phase" is the scientific term for time.  All good speakers should be reasonably phase correct.  Outstanding speakers are more phase correct and this allows them to image better.  Vandersteen's time aligned baffling/driver techniques generally cause more problems than they solve.

be careful James.  Active speakers take away the nervous audiophiles abilitiy to choose there own amps...

Buried somewhere in Linkwitz's (Orion) website, he goes so far as to say that making speakers that are NOT active is basically a waste of time and resources,  which I thought was interesting.  And keep in mind,  "active" and "powered" are not the same thing.  There are active set-ups where you still choose your own amps.

If it's a built in solution like Meridian then yes, but Active doesn't mean you can't choose your own amps.

Correct - I will use external Bryston amps with the speakers.  The speakers will come with an external balanced DSP electronic crossover where all the good stuff happens.

Go figure that you "may" have some high quality
active components just "laying" around :lol:

Have fun tweaking and listening James....although I have to say the project sounds more like a fall project when the lakes start to get stiff?
