Dave, Loreena...may I suspect there was one Mr. Lindgren who told you to try?

Loreena McKennit - heard her name, but haven't listened seriously.

The BIBs are pretty amazing. It can handle most music with aplomb. Now listening to Madonna's Ray of Light, and they are doing a good job (despite all the distortion packed in). I was surprised...

Before this I listened to Acoustic Alchemy's "The New Edge" and as expected, it sounded superb...

I kind of scrath my head and think, are there speakers that actually sound much better than this?

Jacques Loussier... a name from the past which I haven't heard in a long time.
OT but in discussing vocalists, Cleo Laine has to be mentioned and well as her husband, jazz arranger John Dankworth.

As mentioned many times before, the BIB really shines on piano. I think it is because if its size and dimension that piano sounds especially real and true.

I said I'd post some pics - here's one - the BIBs standing side by side.

Cabinet sides and back is stained in reddish brown... front natural Teak.

I have built BIB's but not as big as yours. Now you know what it's like to "dance with a dump truck" ;-)

Wrastling those boxes around must be tough-- but worth it! Very nice finish as well.

if you're interested, I'd suggest the best primer would be Nights at Alhambra - get the DVD combo, if only for the glamour shots of cellist -

great venue - huge acoustic scale

even if you don't think you're a fan of the genre, if you ever get a chance to see a live performance - do
