Default My VOT replaced by a "Super VOT", the Yamaha S6215

Dear all,

After many years of satisfaction and enjoyment, I found an opportunity to upgrade my system.

I started with the replacement of my 1505B driver, a 291-16A, with a Yamaha 6681B. Amazed by the result, I started to study a bit more about Yamaha loudspeakers and I found that the 15 inch 3882 could be an excellent bass loudspeaker for a front loaded horn like the VOT.

Finally, I discovered this bass cabinet, the S6215, with two 3882 and more a less the size of my A5. They were in LA and I found a way to get them shipped to Europe. So all loudspeakers are Yamaha, including the excellent tweeter 4281B. Only the 1505B is still Altec.

The result is just outstanding... I am using a passive crossover and Jriver for small EQ adjustments.

I love your room layout. It looks like a very comfy place to listen to music (on a great system). Shall I bring the beer and a few records?

Hi!
Nice to read you here, Dominique.
I guess you're very happy with those new bass-mid... and it's quite a "wall of fame" for Yamaha's speakers we enjoy.
Cologne is a little bit far for me, less than David, certainly, but why not meeting with enthusiasts?
Regards,
François

Dear Dominique,
Thank you for this invitation. One day, maybe, who knows... I will be happy to hear them and have some exchanges about our passions... (sound, hi-fi and DIY, not beers...although)...

Regards
François
