RE: Eminent Tech Lft B or Magnepan 1.7

Posted by patmacav on February 15, 2012 at 03:27:00:

I'm curious also, but do share with us your opinion on what you have heard. How do the 1.6 and the ET Lft 8A compare in your opinion? Did you hear them in the same room, at the same time, with the same equipment?

I have the 8As and IIIAs, but it's been quite some time since I've compared them in the same room with the same equipment. IIRC, the 8As seemed tighter and more dynamic in how they handled bass.

I currently run the 8As in a two channel arrangement in my living room with entirely different equipment (and no TV or subwoofer) than I do my multiple pairs of IIIAs (with dual subs) that I use in my Home theatre. I enjoy listening to concert DVDs more in my home theatre, then I do in my living room, but that may be partly because of the visual stimulation I get from watching the concert while listening and it might also be because my home theatre listening position is more dialed in for a specific listening position than is my living room setup.

Just some of my thoughts in what I have heard, but I too am curious as I've never heard 1.6s, 1.7s, or the 8Bs.
