回覆 (132): Tangent TM1
I also got a pair of B&W DM4 Monitor Speakers, a brother of BC1 which is using the same super tweeter and mid as the BC1 and only the bass is different.
The cost on DM4 is cheaper than BC1 and worth to try if not compare with BC1.
Size on DM4 is slightly smaller than BC1.
回覆 (131): Tangent TM1
Not listen the Tangent TM1 in before and not same as the Rogers LS5/9.
LS5/9 is using Audax tweeter and Rogers' own 8" bass unit. LS5/9 gets powerful bass but different to find one.
回覆 (130): Tangent TM1
Good morning, DY,
Just found some BC1 in 2nd hand market but most of them are 'not' in good condition. BTW., ignore the alnico driver unit, do you have any experience on Tangent TM1 which uses KEF T27 Tweeter and KEF B200 Bass/Mid Driver like LS5/9 ?
回覆 (129): The BC1 and SP1
Thanks for the useful info.. Besides, one of the pictures from the seller looks great, a pair of BC1 stands in front of a pair of Maggie 3.x.
回覆 (128): The BC1 and SP1
On the market, the SP1 is more rare than the BC1 and in less production quantities even the selling price on SP1 may be slightly higher.
The reasonable price on BC1 in Alnico driver will be around 8000 - 9000 for a pair in nice finish.
Recently, a near mint condition of BC1 in early Serial Numbers: 590/591 was
selling at eBay high at 784 Pounds. See below linke:
Compare in listening LS3/5A and BC1, I would choose BC1.
回覆 (127): The BC1 and SP1
Hi Vash Hing,
Please see the below link on the SP1 and BC1 for your reference:
The earlier version of BC1 are in Alnico 8" drivers which is in better soundstage on vocals and jazz. The SP1 is more in punching power which is specially designed for the USA market,more suitable for the pop or rock music.
I prefer more on the BC1 than on SP1 especially for listening jazz.
Both BC1 and SP1 will need more open space to breathe and for better sound.
回覆 (126): The BC1
If the room is close to a square, the BC1 would not be a good choice because her bass reflex design is more likely to set standing waves in motion. In this case then, the dipolar panels may stand a better chance.
回覆 (125): To DY,
>>>Vash, your place looks every bit suitable for the BC1 to unleash her latent strength although head to head crash with the Maggie 1.6 can be as tough as anything she would ever get.
How if I ask for my friend whose' listening room is not similar as mine, just like a square ? If so, seems shoe box type of listening room is better for most speakers, is it correct ?
回覆 (124): To DY,
And is SP1 better than BC1 ?
Despite alleged technical improvements of the SP1 over the BC1, the latter seems to be able to hold the affection of the audio public much longer. If time is the final judge we may trust, then BC1 should be the clear choice.
Vash, your place looks every bit suitable for the BC1 to unleash her latent strength although head to head crash with the Maggie 1.6 can be as tough as anything she would ever get.
回覆 (123): To DY,
Do you know the reasonable price for a pair of used BC1 ?
And is SP1 better than BC1 ?

In case some readers are not familiar with the Lemo plugs and jacks, one most desirable feature of the Lemo for audio application is that perfect contact will be made with the shield/ground first, so that there will be no risk of speaker or amp damages even if the inter-connect is inadvertently pulled during play.
It makes amp comparisons such a bliss.

Yes, a bit small....but Sommer Epilogue and Abledo are well fitted.

it seems too small for Viablue cable

The LEMO plug in the picture I showed is 1B series which is good fit to my new pre-amp. project.

morning master Limage,
thx for sharing your experience with lemo plug. Lemo plug (as well as fischer) is widely use at my work place. they are hightly durable and reliable.
if you need to use larger cable in diameter, you can consider using 1B or 2B lemo series.

Lemo plugs have been designed for medical use in view of their reliability. Mark Levinson was first to introduce these plugs for audio connections.
I used Lemo plugs in my active crossover unit and they served flawlessly for over 20 years. The only drawback is the small diameter of the plug which precludes its use with current crop of killer-sized cables.
