A chance to hear some open baffle Lowthers. Having just listened to Vivid V1.5s driven by Conrad Johnson this is a week of fast clean systems.
I was impressed to hear Derek’s open baffle Lowther PM6A system on Friday. I was expecting fast transients and accurate leading and trailing edges to the music, but was preparing myself for the usual peaks in the Lowther response. What a surprise! An open baffle Lowther that did NOT have shrieking strings, penetrating brass and all the usual Lowther attributes. But it did have amazing speed and transparency, showing off the quality of a Wadia CD player and a superb custom preamp and Weston 300B SE valve amp.
