Cressy's Banned Omniset

Unread post by wiicrackpot » Mon May 22, 2017 7:56 am

Been enjoying reading Cressy Snr's build over at Audio Talk, are they the same drivers as your Cube's Doc?,
i really like the look of them,going by your 'away with the faeries' on your profile you could be Scottish.

So Cressy for your efforts, ''DAE A SKID!!!''. :clap:

The drivers are not mentioned and I cannot see the bass driver in the pictures ,the tweeter is not the same as in the cubes .
Even a stroke didn't result in me liking AOS

Different, rather expensive, and rather efficient drivers. I forget the name, not one I know but seems a fav at Audio Talk.

I like the sound of that, of course driven by valves, efficiency is top priority,
nice system that, wonder what that breadboard thingy with big transformer is,under the monoblocks.

I see, thats a big lump of iron on that, a bit hair shirt leaving like that,
should carry a warning for Mrs Cressy to take her rings off when dusting. :mrgreen:

P.s. is my eyes playing tricks or is the left hand tweeter dome pushed in?. :)

The version before this one are here http://www.audio-talk.co.uk/phpBB3/view ... f=4&t=6696 and here http://www.audio-talk.co.uk/phpBB3/view ... f=4&t=5993 and here http://www.audio-talk.co.uk/phpBB3/view ... f=4&t=5993 and here http://www.audio-talk.co.uk/phpBB3/view ... f=4&t=6658

It seems the bass driver is faital (sounds ominous :shock: ).

He will get a pair of Cube2 tomorrow on lone to compare with them as they are similar concept.

I think the tweeter just looks that way, they seem to have a double dome.

Apart from a couple of tits it is a good forum, Cressy Snr (Steve the Shadow) and Cressy Jnr (maker of Tisbury ?) always make for interesting threads.

I thought Cressy Jnr made the BTE pre [advertising on ebay] and refurbished old Lenco's. I did not realise Cressy Snr was Steve the Shadow.
