    Last saturday I finally had the chance to take a look at this fantastic collection

    I was expecting a lot of people but we were more or less alone So we had all the time we wanted...

    The first speaker was the gigantic D55000, it was much HUGE! The opposite can be said about K2 S9500 which were much smaller than expected.... but I was kind of sad when he said that the S9500 have never been used, not a single song!! The same thing was for the S3100...

    But most speakers are used and not all are mint, i.e. the Paragon had quite a bit of scratches and one big wound. But it have quite a history, the first years it was placed in the white House

    As Rolf already have documented, most "important" JBL are present, Hartsfield, Paragon, Metrogon, Minigon, K2s, E2, Olympus, 250ti, 4350 and the lists goes on.... but he's still missing a few, among other Aquarius 3, so they are interested in getting a nice pair

    The only playing system at the moment was this one, McIntosh MC2301, MC1201 and of course E2

    As you know I have heard the system. It doesn't sound bad, but as the room is concrete, it sounds a little to "hard". Also at the time I heard it the system was brand new, not played in. The E2 wasn't adjusted, so I hope I can get the E2 home to really see what they can do.

    Rolf: Do you know Erling personally? As far as I understood he also have a pair of E2 at home so maybe you can get a better impression there?

    Tim: I didn't get very much impression of how it sounded. They were playing music I normally don't listen to and the volume was also very moderate.

    Yes, I know him personally, but he has never told me what system he uses himself, and I have never been at his home.

    I am going to talk to Erling in late October (about DAB Model 10+) and I can ask him ... can't guarantee he will answer about what he has for private. Private means private you know.

    I know that he used to have K2 S9800 on Pass Labs X-1000 at home. This is a few years ago.

    The sound was supposedly not very good since he had very hard walls, wich resulted in quite poor acoustical conditions.
