RE: Radian 745NeoBe: Harsh/Hard or Smooth/Easy?

Posted by lokie on December 14, 2023 at 06:14:30:

I cant comment on the 745Be but I have lived with the 475pb for a couple of years and liked them as much as the couple Altec 800 variants before them.
A friend says they are more natural sounding than the Be's... for what it's worth.

I am now working on a new project and thought I would try something new on recommendation from another friend (who's really into esoteric vintage kit) and that's the B&C DE250 with a polyimide diaphragm. I'm in the process of burning in and swapping it in and out of horns but am really liking what I'm hearing. It has a calmness or organic sense about it. Hard to explain but it keeps sounding better and better.

The B&C 1.4" format with the polyimide dighragm is the DE800
