    Glad you are enjoying them! I had the DM 2/6, the Excite X14, and the Focus 260. All were very enjoyable and superb sounding speakers.

    I picked up a pair of 703’s and I’ve been burning them in.

    Almost done with the diy stands.

    Same here. Done with burn in/break in. I got a new set of stands as well. New Triangle Borea BR03 speakers scheduled to arrive today - we will see who gets to stay!

    I had about 5 hours on them by remembering to go down there and restart the cd, but finally figured out the repeat option on my new-to-me Cambridge, lol, so the hours will pile on now. :)

    Yes, I am! Thank you for the reminder! I once had the Emit 20 as well which I sold to a heck of a guy here on the forum :smile:

    Set up the Triangle Borea BR03 bookshelf speakers yesterday but I didn't get a chance to snap a picture until today (It's always "pics or it didn't happen" with you lot). I got the walnut finish and it looks really nice.

    Look nice! Is that some sort of wave guide or diffuser on the tweet?

    I was listening to "Good to Go Go" when I wrote that. These excel with unplugged instruments and vocals. Piano is especially addictive. They put one hell of a tweeter in these.

    halo and deronb1 - can we get separate reviews on those Dyns and Triangles?

    deronb1 - never heard the SE tweeter, do you know what model was used for the upgrade?
  • deronb1
    deronb1 Posts: 5,039
    I think the tweeter was from the Contour 1.8. They also used the midwoofers from another Contour model. Reworked the xovers of course. I need to spend some more time with them to give a solid impression.

    Thanks! Good eye! Yes, it is meant to diffuse the sound coming out of the soft dome tweeter.

    Josh, too early to tell. The sound on these keeps changing (out of the box they were not-so-hot). Day 2, and they are opening up quite a bit. Bass response is ridiculous for a speaker this size. Soundstage is huge. Price is nice.

    I've been comparing several bookshelf speakers since the L200's left my apartment and I'll be putting my thoughts together for a more formal writeup.

    Like I said above, I'll be putting my thoughts down on paper once I've done a little more work and given the Triangle's a little time to "mature." ;)

    Turned it on. Warmed it up. Made some coffee. Amy Winehouse singing in the living room.

    Sounds like a great way to start the day! What kind of coffee?

    How is that coffee? It seems to cost more than most of the other brands but the name kept me from trying it.

    It's a good strong brew for everyday consumption.
