This time around things are more than a little different. I had been using a setup that consisted of the DeVore 0/93's driven by my other new love (one can never have enough love) the LM210 300B integrated. 8 watts of 300B magic. The amp was working wonders here with either Orangutan. The 0/93's disappeared for a quick local loan this past week, so I thought it might be the time to try the LM755's again with this new amp. Lo and behold, the 300B 8 watter is the key with these speakers. Detail in spades, that coherent human touch that you dream of. Now I have to say from the start, they're not for everyone. I've even talked to other dealers who say, no tweeter, not for me. The Orangutans are a bit warmer, can be played louder. This is after all a single driver speaker. And do not for a second, however, think Lowther....no Lowther will ever cross through this establishment's threshold, unless I intend to peel paint or wallpaper from these rooms. Okay, I'm being tongue in cheek here. Let's just say they're not my cup of tea, and leave it at that.
These Line Magnetic 755's, however, are sounding the bees knees here. I know it's finally a combination of having the right amp, in the right room. Remember the Haven motto, or one of them- a speaker can only due what an amp tells it to. And if you get the speaker and room combo right, then you've got a slice of heaven. Of course there are ways to manipulate things, which we'll cover later. Yet if one sticks to the aforementioned you'll be head and shoulders above the rest. Such is the case with these two Line Magnetic products, the LM755EX speakers and LM210 amp.
