In the Issue 78 Positive Feedback Online review of the SPEC RSA-M3 EX Real Sound Amplifier and the SPEC RSP-901EX Real Sound Processors, I only reviewed the Real Sound Processors on my Harbeth Super HL5 loudspeakers. If you read the review, you know I was very impressed with what the Real Sound Processors did for my Harbeth Super HL5s: “The SPEC RSP-901EX Real Sound Processors are the real deal and worth their asking price, and one of those no-brainer […]

Siedy Checking In From The Netherlands: Chaos!

It’s always a pleasure to hear from Siedy in the Netherlands.
