I live in a house that has a pyramid-shaped roof, so I guess you could say that I have a thing for pyramids (footnote 1). That's probably why I was immediately drawn to the Green Mountain Audio Diamante. I'm also attracted to floorstanding speakers with small footprints, since my listening/video room is only 13' by 16'. My Holy Grail of loudspeakers is a small speaker that's flat between 20Hz and 20kHz, can do 110dB sound-pressure–levels without straining, and costs less than $1000/pair.

As you may have noticed, Stereophile's approach to equipment testing is quite different from that of "mainstream" audio publications. Instead of throwing a bunch of measurements at you, and telling you how we think components ought to sound because of those measurements, we test them as you would: by listening. But we have an extra problem: we have to convey to someone else—you—a feeling for what we hear from that component. It ain't always easy.

Huck sez, "I want to play that record of mice singing for sex again."

I've suspected this for years. I can hardly ever understand the ones from South America. I think it's the way they roll their "r"s. They talk fast, too.

I love Radio DB and I rave about it all the time. Basically, Byrne programs about two hours of streaming music, which he changes each month—usually thematically linked—and I usually end up buying one or two (or more) of the discs he streams from.

I look up and smile, nod my head, and respond: "You might be right about that."
