I place Mr. Burwen's sound system firmly in the category of wretched excess. I really wonder I I sat down to listen to a good recording of a lady with a guitar and a beautiful voice if it would sound as good with Mr. Burwen's vastly complicated system as on my much much more modest triamplified horn system.
"a good recording of a lady with a guitar and a beautiful voice"
You seriously gotta get Rebecca Pidgeon's SACD, or even CD, "The Raven". 1994. My friend John C. turned me on to this recording, and it's great.
Hello Don and Group:
Wretched Excess!! Jajaja Probably so but my kind of Audiophilia Nervosa I would love to have that system. But think about it he built this first then built his house around it and 5 channels and in the mid 1960s !! I remember reading that article in Audio Mag in the Mid 70s. To this day I have never forgotten about the difficulty in reproducing those short term peak dynamics. I remember Mr Burwen complaining in the article that he wished he had made the horns walls thicker there were only six inches of reinforced poured concrete Jajaja. 20,000 watts and with horns where are those SE 2A3 Guys??
