Honestly, we're gonna have to start calling you Romy "magnetar" Bessnow if you keep changing your mind like this...

I understand you sarcasm but it is what it is. I did not change my mind but the conditions of the game were changed. I consider it as a positive change as this change is something that connects something else that that address the multiple issues at the same time.

Reassuring to hear that the S2's empire is expanding its borders unchallenged. Looking forward to hearing how Macondo evolves; may I suggest that if you are going to try a bigger horn with the driver that you consider the JM Le Cleac'h flare? The large roundover helps prevent reflections and I believe it may be less susceptible to the tractrix in this regard anyway. I suspect this is why you find fur balls in the throat of the horn useful, the JM may not be as needy.

Chris, my first reaction when I got the S2 win flat all the way and with no HF problems was exactly like you suggest namely to go for 250Hz flare and run S2 down to 500Hz. Then I started to think  - the deeper horn the narrower dissipation and more HF roll off… So, I do not know… In addition I really would like do not introduce second order high-pass on S2. A short tractrix is fine by me because it is short that has huge number of benefits. I have no experience with JM Le Cleac'h curve. I still here and there consider it but at this point I have ho motivations.

Oh, on a side note, Roy Gregory said in this months HiFi+ (in the review of the Zanden CD system): "We learn lessons along the way; in the case of hi-fi, they can be attributed to individual components. The Lamm ML2 taught me about tonal (as opposed to spatial) separation."

Lamm ML2 is totally different story – it is problem-free amp, has some limitations but has no problems. I was talking about the L2 preamp… BTW, I did not read the article but I would agree with Roy – Lamms are in some way limited in their spatial qualities and their primary accent on tonal accuracy and about tonal connectively. I the last the Lamm’s SETs are undisputable kinds.
