Speakers with high resolution

Hi

I just changed my speakers from Thiel cs 2.3 to AP Avanti, but i miss the thiels resolution.
The avanti has god resolution but absolutly not enough.
I love it when you here just about all there is to here, every little sound gives you information about how deep, tall the room is. It givs you a deeper sence of transportation to the event.

I guess i am an analytical kind of guy, but not so that i gets bright and unpleasent.

So now im serching for speakers with high resolution, any ideas?

No electrostatic speakers.

Yeah, it's pretty cool hearing Diana Krall's lips seperate before she utters a word. I've got the same disease you have. There is no cure, i'm convinced.

Re: Speakers with high resolution

Induction Dynamics ID1 loudspeakers do it for me. http://www.inductiondynamics.com/products/id1.html?id=id1
(You don't need the optional subwoofer amp unless you want it for movies, etc.)

My reference, 2-channel system consists of the ID1 speakers mated with Simaudio Moon's Evolution Series components (Andromeda CD player; P-8 preamplifier; W-8 power amplifier). Induction Dynamics is based in Overland Park, Kansas, and it's unfortunate that their ID1 speakers have largely gone unnoticed by the high-end audio press, because they are simply magnificent instruments.

I've auditioned a variety of speakers from Thiel, Meadowlark, ProAc, Von Schweikert Audio, B&W, Revel, etc. Among all of these mid-sized, floorstanding speakers, none have been able to hold a candle to the ID1's, in my humble opinion. The ID1's are truly full-range speakers, producing bass into the low 20's as a (switchable) four-way speaker. In addition (and unlike the Thiels) they are not only efficient, they're also free from the large room-boundary requirements so typical of 1st-order crossovers.

(By the way, I thank Bob Kirk of Archive Audio in Bexley, OH. for introducing me to the Induction Dynamics ID1 speakers.)

Phoneman!

I find that to be a highly interesting speaker!

This will be my year to get a pair into the house.

Please let us know what you think of that speaker after trying it, Buddha!

Re: Speakers with high resolution

Excuse my ignorance, but regarding the Mackies, how would you hook up to a home stereo a pair of amplified monitors made to run off a mixing console?

Thanks

Re: Speakers with high resolution

I suspect they would hook-up the same way you would an active subwoofer, which is to say with your normal speaker outputs as at least one option.
