If these are for sale, someone should consider them; I've had mine since they were launched and love them.

Larry, I have never really heard of any "tweaks" for the RL2. . . the design/factory "tweaks" for the RL2 are all in RL1.5s as far as I can tell!

Greetings well to start again i still have my radials and cannot find a proper sounding amplifier to drive them i had the taboo didnt sound good on the radials...


Anyways anyone using other amplifiers with your radials besides decware stuff I really did like the select with it but wont play loud enough for me 90sdb peaks etc..


Personally these speakers really need an amplifier without much damping as there is not much bottom end  with my amps that i have used

again i am looking to build a small system with these speakers and give the oral/mind a workout

I'm using the 5 watt Decware EL34 Monoblock amps.  There is just enough bass, especially using a CSP2.

When these amps were modified by Steve, I used my old Proton 50 watt "Power Envelope" amplifier with the RL2s and they worked quite well.  They didn't give that "holographic" soundstage or depth to the sound at least nowhere near that of the Decware amps.  I have also briefly used them with an B&O receiver, 85 watts, a very rich and dark sounding amp, with perhaps really nice tonal balance, but a very solid state sound with fuzzier imaging and shallower depth than the Proton amp.

Oh I'm finally having a good phase in my life Larry.  I've gotten past the major grieving over the loss of my wife in October.  One of my oldest friends has seemingly miraculously become my new girlfriend and I'm in one of the most comfortable and passionate relationships of my life.  I retired in May and I'm just chilling.  I'm enjoying a new NAD T-855 universal player, which I bought after initially being somewhat disappointed with the ZCD I bought in June/July.  (I'll be putting that back in the system again soon.)

Hope all is well with you. Smiley

Thanks Larry.  Yes, I haven't been too outspoken about losing Helen in October. It was awful, but in fact it was not as awful as I could imagine because we had so long to prepare for any possibility, we talked out so many things (including my finding someone else quickly, her wish for me) and we were never in doubt of how we felt about each other, and were always demonstrative of it.

I hope no one else has to go through that, an unrealistic hope, I mean it's unrealistic of me to not expect to go through it again!  I can see one thing with certainty:  it's an ultimate learning experience, and you find yourself capable of emotion and action you never imagined!

What an incredible set of posts, Lon.

I've been out of touch quite a bit of late (my life has changed as well, but not in the same ways) but I had not heard about Helen. My naivete lead me to think that all was well with your wife, since you had not mentioned her lately.
You have my empathy, my friend.
I once lost a loved one, myself, a woman I was making plans to marry. We did not have the years behind us as you two had, but it was still tough. She died from a flu I brought back from one of trips into Mexico. I was sick when I got home and she got sick right away. We were both hospitalized. I got better, but she didn't make it through.
I was completely baffled that something like that could happen to a healthy young person, but sometimes it does.

I am glad that you have found some companionship. I could not be any happier with my present wife of sixteen years, now. Life is good.


... and HEY! Congratulations on your retirement. Keep chilling, pal and DO post a bit more about the Nad.

Thanks.  That's horrible about that flu and the result!

I feel funny posting about the NAD. . . here.  ;)  It's a great machine though, and a steal at its present audioadvisor clearance price.

Lon,

I noticed you had been kinda quiet for a while, but I had no idea about your wife. I am so sorry to hear that. Glad to know you are doing well and that you prepared yourself for this. I can relate much like the above post, albeit I was very young when it happened to me.

I just noticed the fat Boy in your avatar and signature. Perhaps I will put my bike in for that thing too! lol

Where do you live, maybe we should get together for a ride one day.

Take care,
Robert

Sure, I can understand that, but I was thinking of the other forum, Audiophile Talk.

Either way, just curious and no pressure was intended.

You are always careful to limit the context when you offer your opinions. In my view that makes yours seem to support a little more weight, but in keeping with contexts, that's just my opinion.
