I am not so impressed bout BD Design speakers. I truly hated the BMS drivers that they use and I truly hate the network of the blabbering cretins that BD Design built around itself. Any single critical mentioning of BD Design lead to a sudden showing up an army of “BD Design enthusiasts” who begin to run all over you with their idiotic drooling about BD Design. Of course I do not state that BD Design owner is idiot but I have seen quite many very specific idiots and the all have a common denominator – the PRIDE of ownership of BD Design. Ironically I do not think that the guy who own BD Design is a fool and I think that he knows the true values of this idiotic followers. However, he is in the business and those Audio- Morons are his commodities - so, he shepherd those stupid sheep….
Post how do you find the sound “Swing”. I do not know what those industry whores do nowadays with auditions. Here in US I know distributors of very popular loudspeakers who permit an addition only under defined condition that no negative comments will be expressed publicly. Furthermore I know distributors/dealers who extend additional 10% discount if after the buy the new owner post glorious feedback about the product at the specific sites. I know the distributors/dealers who give extras 10% -15% if you agree to keep the bought model until the nest model get introduced. I mean: this is how the dirt build the “public opinion” noondays…
Anyhow, it is good that you let the Druids to go – they were dead loudspeakers. I have a local audio guy who is straggling with Druids, even though the loudspeakers is not the problem of his but he intend do not change loudspeakers for years to come. I was looking at his frustrations with Druids and I suggested him to let them go until the hype is up. I pitched to him Dunlavy CS-III or Altec 19 as the compromised for the same price. Neither Dunlavy nor Altec are awfully good themselves but in compact package and for $1.5K they are fine monitors – much better then the contemporary crap with the price tag of 20x-50x time more. In fact if I were not as stupid as I was then instead of stating my MiniMe project I better got the Dunlavy III, perhaps put in there so other drivers and it would be it…
