I would like a report, as I'm thinking of getting one of those myself! Smile
I used to have an old Roland Space Echo, but that got lost in transit...

Well, I've been playing with it for abt 2 h now and it really makes my klee sequences sound richer and 'more professional' (that was my first thought).

I'ts really easy to use and you can easily get some good drone loops going aswell.

One quirk, however, is when you have a loop going you can only change the delay type once (for example from 'Standard' to 'Analog'). If you then change it a secod time (to 'tape' for example) the loop gets silent.

Else it's an awesome pedal. It's not a 'Holiest Grail', but it is an awesome (23 second Exclamation ) delay. (I've heard you can squeeze even 46 sec out if it Shocked http://www.loopers-delight.com/tools/bossDD20/bossDD20_review1.html ).

Whats "new" is a used Denon reciever with external inputs which run a Yamaha DSP-100u through the two speakers in the upper corners of the media room and two more on the facing wall behind the listening position. This is also the first time I've run the 100u as recomended -- with the front speakers both above and behind the mains. Sounds really really good.

Yea they do help the sound a bit Wink I'm a true believer when it comes to electrostatic speakers. I bought these used. Before that I had a pair of used Acoustat 2+2s. The Logans are hybrid two ways w/xover at 250 I have them on a dbx active xover with RTA and cross over to the two sealed 15"ers on the bottom outside of the room at 125hz. They are time matched to the logans by delay. Those two "low woofers" take it down to 40hz with a single subwoofer going down to 19hz. All filters are 24 db 8ve.

I'm still tweaking the system after a major overhaul. Looking for a free ware RTA to run on my PC.

I may have the chance to get a pair of Genelec HT206, a model identical to the 1030A (compare the specifications for the 2 models). Both are discontinued products, the first one is sold as "home theater" speaker, the second one as studio monitor but they are the same Wink no one buys the former one and everyone looks for the latter one, at least down here. The Italian distributor is getting rid of a few HT206 for cheap and guess who's trying to get advantage of it Question

I'd like to point out that I'm actually fingering a chord that will be familiar to those of you who were subjected to organ tuition, even though I never got no schooling. Cool

@ bachus : I like your Quests! Had a pair once but the amps never came through which brought me into a kind of hi-fi depression and then all of that kind of collapsed... (for Norwegians: yeah, I got burned by BOAHS)

Shocked

Sounds like either:

A) The unreleased Village People triple live vinyl
B) An illegal act in several US states


or both... Shocked

That´s OK, you are only required to think it.

Why..? First of all it is kinda odd. You must mess with it in order understand why it is cute. The first time I played one of these was way back in 75. I have wanted one since then. I´ve had a Standard in my possession 3 times but not really actually owned one until now.
It is also quite easy to service.. and the circuitry is pretty cool.

Hmm...

Here:

http://www.xs4all.nl/~reedgors/64/eminent310.htm


Uh... I checked YouTube.. if you search for Eminent 310 you will find lotsa stuff. Too bad the lot seems to be people playing Jean Michel Jarre songs Sad
This is really a nice instrument.
