Yes, re.Lowther, I went in their room on Saturday pm, they had a team of three there. I got stuck in and started fondling the drivers on the table. I think there was a DX3, a PM2A (heavy - nice !) and a 5" without a whizzer cone, which was interesting, although Neo rather than alnico. It was something they'd done recently for someone.
They had corner horns, an update ( 'TP2' ) of the old TP1's, with PM4A's, they were good but didn't surprise me as I'd hoped. Partly the treble is rolled a bit without a tweeter and with the doorknob plug. You probably have to get your ear attuned for a while to hear the strengths.
As far as Nick's go, they had the expected dynamics, microdynamics and uncoloured midrange. The bass/mid is crossed differently than mine ( in fact the whole thing is different since I bi-amp for the tweeters ) and James's , so I could hear some pros & cons. It's difficult to remember exactly what was good, but I remember some things in the upper bass catching my ear as being better. On the bass and timing, i found it a bit confusing. We listened to 'Full Circle' ( Czukay ) second side, and on the first track, I felt the bass was a bit out of synch ; but on the second track which is very bass-driven it sounded spot on.
The speakers were handling the room very well, not much evidence of any modes - Nick, Andrew and I all agreed on this.
Treble was interesting and a bit different to mine, no doubt partly due to the bullet tweeters. It was generally very good , but in comparison to my ribbons it seemed a bit level dependant, and a little too aggressive to my ears at louder volumes. On quieter tracks it was lovely, very clean and resolved, the tweeters are obviously extended and with low distortion. It's possible that the level dependence could come from the Lowthers , but I don't know how steep the LPass on this is ( Chris ? ) .
