Love Of My Life - George Benson
I picked this 1993 song out because it have everything in it. Superb bass from the bass guitar, superb guitar playing from George, superb sax sound and of course the wonderful voice of mr George Benson himself.
Incredible sounding speakers.
Bought them for 75 euro
They will never leave my house
This sound make me really happy
My magnats zero 7, magnats msp 120 and kef's Q11 are for sale!!!!!!!
In this test i used the pioneer sa-708. I totally forgot i had this one. It was in a corner, together with a matching tuner. My first plan was to use the akai am-2800 and because it have a few dirty switches and potentio meters I thought to do a quick cleaning job, before using it for the test. But I opened the amp and it's looks hard to reach the switches. I left it open to do the job later today and went to see which other amp I could use for the test. I saw this SA-708 and give it a try. Surprisingly it sounded very good, never tested it before this test so i was lucky I found a good amp for the test what didn't need cleaning. I Will make a review from this amp with it matching tuner soon.
Once again this is the proof that expensive speakers do not always sound better. I have too meet the B&W who can beat this sound... The kefs are not bad at all, they are just good. these infinity's are perfect, that's the difference. I also love the looks from these speakers, they are not like modern speakers who just looks all the same. This speaker have it's own style. Old fashioned yes. But if you want good perfect bass you can never produce that with small woofers, even if they place 2, 3 ore more smaller woofers, it will never sound as a good gigantic woofer. The sweet mellow sound of a gigantic woofer always win for my ears. The revox symbol b speakers i heard a few weeks ago, sounded better as these ones, true, but hey, those ones cost 1000 euro! And the revox was not that much better sounding. Not every speaker with gigantic woofer have perfect bass, The technics Sb-G910 with it's 42 cm woofer didn't produces that nice mellow bassy sound I was looking for. The technics sb-6000 had a better bass than the g910 but because it is a 2 way system it didn't cover the full sound spectrum, you can hear that very good in the review from those speakers. Both these speakers are no match at all for these infinity's. I am very happy with the sm-152...I keep searching for better ones...... but I doubt if I will find a better sound. I am gonna look for a second pair of the sm-152, just want to have one in each corner and/ore as a reserve, so much I like this sound.
I earlier reviewed the infinity kappa 600 and delta 60, both are very big but modern style speakers. I was not so impressed by both, they sounded ok but not the speakers i would fall in love for. The kappa 600 where award winning speakers. Who doesn't know the kappa series. I never heard from the sm-152. Before i went buying these speakers I checked some forums... most of them didn't place these speakers in the top. , some wrote that they lack bass, others say they are sensitive for foam rot. But hey, for 75 euro I could not let them go, so my surprise was huge when I heard the speakers on a marantz pm 80 , I immediately know that these speakers where something different than all the others I had before. Yes true the speakers on paper starts with 44HZ but my ears tells me something quite different. The bass from these speakers is so much better than the kefs and magnat zero 7 although it start on 44 hz...
