finally moved up from the 2b to the 1b. I loved the 2b's but they seemed to struggle just a bit at higher volume in my large basement.
Got these from jdhdiggs, great transaction.
the sound is definitly fuller and richer than the 2b's. I think its more noticible to me because of my listening area issues. The 1b's deliver the great soundstage you would expect, but with more of a sence of effortlessness than the 2b's. I do notice an improved bass responce as well. It sounds smoother overall than the 2b. I wonder if the difference would be that apparent in a smaller/better listening environment?
While my 2b's have the replacement tweet, the 1b's as of yet do not. on the 1b, the sl2000'sbrightness problem is there on some music, but not as apparent as with the the 2b's when they had the sl2000 (pre replacement)
I going to hold off orderring another replacement tweet set until i can hear these as is with the radii tube pre i bought from RuSsMaN.
overall, i'm happy as a clam. Looking forward to hearing how these sound with the tube pre as well, since i have 0 experience with tubes whatsoever.
