B&W 703 - How to tame the highs?
Snofun3 is spot on with the Martin Logan suggestion. However, you may need to replace the Six Pacs to take full advantage of the ML's. In any case, the ML is a BIG upgrade over the 703 and will need a lot less power than the 800 series which are u...

B&W 703 - How to tame the highs?
>>I will be trading up in July, 2006. Most likely to the B&W 800 series<<Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Furthermore, you'll need monster amplification for a similiar sonic signature. There are so many f...

B&W 703 - How to tame the highs?
>>I really thought it would hard to have harsh highs with tube equipment, but I do<<All you need is a low quality speaker like the 703. You learned the hard way. Don't give up. Sell 'em and move up the audio food chain.
