Listening to the gentle interplay of Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway on their classic track, “Where is the Love?” its panoramic presentation plays to the strength of Harbeth’s latest version of their ever popular Compact 7 monitor.
The Harbeth loudspeaker is a no-nonsense speaker that just plays well. It mercilessly reveals the quality of the connected devices, but never sounds "wrong". In addition, so wonderfully timeless that it will always remain modern.
One cannot but think of the notion that 'Once is chance, twice is coincidence, third time is a pattern'. Following the revived 1970s JBLs and Rogers' return to LS3/5A manufacture [HFN Jul '19], the arrival of a dead-accurate, reborn BBC LS5/9 as part of Rogers' 'Classic' range is further proof that a trend is under way. All those Instagram images of systems made up of 50-year-old components tell us the past is back with a vengeance.
Copland has chosen an ESS9018 DAC working in quad mode mono configuration, which offers PCM decoding up to 32-bit, 384kHz resolution, and DSD. You get chunky binding posts around the back, plus sockets for its four analogue inputs, four digital ins, a moving magnet phono stage, a tape loop, and Bluetooth.
Any HiFi systems consist of interconnections, or cables, between the elements and we know that cables can act as electronic filters affecting output like tone controls on an amplifier, for example. The key to a decent system is to minimise these filters affecting performance.
“The soundstage has great depth, but appears wider with the Ultra Blue II…Overall, the top end of the Ultra Blue II is more elegant and the bass punchier.” Neville Roberts, HiFi Choice
As good a match as the E20a/ii is with Rogers designs, the amplifier is capable of performing with any loudspeaker with appropriate sensitivity and impedance characteristics.
"I had hoped at last to be able to find faults in a Tellurium Q cable, but that was never going to be the case here. This was an excellent all-rounder with excellent speed and precision. Working at all frequencies and all types of music excellently it opened up the music in a way that many other companies can only dream of, that focus on phase relationships doing its thing. This worked so well with different systems and I would heartily recommend having a listen, however expensive your system is. This cable is that good.” Janine Elliot, HiFi Pig,
Rogers already makes standard 15-ohm versions of the LS3/5A, using new versions of the 19mm Mylar dome tweeter and 110mm Bextrene mid-bass cone originally made by KEF.
