Max, it's an old 42".

The JBL's really aren't as imposing as the picture suggests. They are about the same size as an ATC 150 Tower but are a lot less deep and the curves soften the look to a degree IMHO.

They are a speaker that presents an ideal set of compromises for me personally in the room that I use. Truly large scale but without troublesome bass extension. And I know it's so often said but, listening to many albums I've had for thirty years, these really do pull information out of the mix that I had absolutely no idea was there.

Colour me impressed. I can only imagine what the newer versions sound like.

As this is in my attic I'm just moving things around all of the time. I have an Isoblue rack that I may put up when I get a hicap.

Nice Yuri, I hadn't realized the Sheva had been released yet! Keep us posted on these, ones that have been giving me some thought myself!

What speakers are you running with these?

Tim,

This couple was sent to me for testing purposes by the official Russian distributor. Since they arrived only today, I have not yet come to a conclusion about their sound. I think in two weeks I will be able to say something about these devices.

I wrote about my main system here:

Thanks Yuri, sorry I missed it over the course of other things. Will certainly be interested in your opinion of the Clones, I certainly love the simplicity of them, although the Sheva Dac seems to have enough going for it internally/design-wise.

Posted this in the Classics section, but it's actually a new TT made by the Classic Turntable Company, a remanufactured TT based on Garrard's 301, set in an SMD granite plinth.

Besides, it deserves a wider audience

Great album, and a nice-looking (and presumably -sounding) TT.
