I had a chance this evening to hear a system with another Troels Gravesen design - his DTQWT. This is a 3 way high sensitivity speaker featuring a Jantzen Audio 8" midwoofer, Audax dome tweeter on a waveguide and dual Eminence Deltalight 10" woofers. The midwoofer and woofers share a quarter wave horn.
This setup confirmed my suspicion that this is yet another great Troel's design, well worth the effort. Compared to the Jazzman speakers there was a different sound, one that appeared perhaps slightly more raw and energetic where the Jazzman strikes me as a bit more laid back, restrained and very controlled (not that this was lacking control). Both very good speakers. Not being used to vinyl I did also notice a certain "organic" quality that I feel vinyl imparts. A Weston Time Machine integrated amp sat there in the rack with valves so dim they appeared they weren't doing anything at all, even when the level climbed up. I found myself listening to the music rather than the system and that is always a good sign. We had a mix of genres and even Elvis made an appearance. This is a system you can sit back and relax with on a Friday night, or one you can crank to party levels for some fun. It never showed any signs of nearing limits.
