I've been listening to new loudspeaker options recently. Mainly to check that my Shahinian's are fully revealing the wonders of my new NDS/552DR/500DR system. Many interesting auditions, but the reason for this thread is to say how impressed I was by the most recent audition. Naturally, I was hoping to have my own system in the chain, but not so many retailers always have it available and 272/250DR was the best available at this last one on Monday this week.
Initial fears that 272/250 wouldn't be good enough to reveal the differences between the various speaker options were compounded when the dealers own streaming system kept dropping out, necessitating using Tidal as the source. Those fears proved completely unfounded as speaker differences were amply highlighted by this system and I have to say that 272/250 really is IMO TREMENDOUSLY good for the money. More than that, it's an outright high end system. Really, Very impressed.
