What they say about us

Thank you so much for servicing my DX4’s.

I have now run them in for about 50 hours and my Voigts sound absolutely wonderful.

I think they sound better than they have ever sounded and I have owned Voigts since the 1970s.

I don’t know whether it’s the folded back treble unit or whether you have improved anything else but its definitely working.

You cannot believe how happy I am!!!

Best Wishes

Colin

Martin,

Just a quick note to say that the drive units arrived safely and I have now had a chance to have a proper listen following a small running in period.

In short they sound fantastic!

I am sure they will continue to improve with some more running in.

Thank you very much for all your help with this.

Dear Martin,

I’ve built several different horn constructions with several different amps, including a class D of some kW output. But, in the mid-nineties, I felt I was at home with a pair of DX2 in quarter-wave pipes and an Italian Unison Research S6 valve amp.

When the speakers needed renovation after some 25 years of service, I opted for your replacement service and bought a new pair to put in the same enclosure.

At about the same time my beloved S6 turned out to be beyond repair, so after a lot of research, we decided upon a Polish Fezz amp, the Mira Ceti with one 300B valve per channel.
So our present system consists of the Lowther speakers, the Mira Ceti amp, a Pro-ject RPM1 Carbon record player with a Pro-ject Tube Box S phono stage and finally a Primare Cd-player with a sound close to analog. Not a very expensive system but with a lot of detail.

When I replaced the Electro Harmony with Elrog 300B, I had the most natural-sounding system I’ve heard and I’ve been to a lot of hi-fi shows.
Of course, with 8 Watts per channel, you don’t get bass to keep the neighbors awake but on the other hand, you can hear every note that Percy Heath plays when he is shadowing Milt Jackson. But the system can also give a lot of punch to Bruce Springsteen and I hold Beethoven as THE Master.

But as we have the music in the living room, it should also look nice and we think that we have managed. Mostly white with one red player in the center. My wife thinks that this one of our better walls.

I enclose ( I hope) a couple of pics

Keep manufacturing your nice speakers.

Morning Martin, Just wanted to thankyou for my ex2’s. I’m a week in and loving them, It’s been nice running them in and hearing the noticeable sound improvements.. I’ve never had such sensitive speaker’s and my Cambridge audio amplifier of 4 year’s has never sounded so good, Proper looking forward to getting my Quad valve amp’s back. Thank’s again Stew.

Dear Martin

Well explained. It is clear to me now. Will use drivers as is. 🙂 No problem. The sound is already magnificent (after 24 hours of running-in). I use silver signal and speaker cables, all with big cross section. 2x 2.4mm for signal conductors. Speaker’s are twice bigger and combined with copper one’s. It would look excessive for some one but in reality it makes the sound much more natural by my experience. For me it is a crucial discovery and a know-how, thus I made my cables myself buying DIY silver wire.
EX4 made me happy, cause this model had significantly improved  Midd and low bass performance vs DX4. Still use my active subs with EX4 for bottom freqs.  But some times I think my Fidelio cabinets can perform alone (without active Subs) without loosing weight at midd and low frequencies. Well done, Lowther! Over-performed!  Thank you!

Dear Mr. Thornton,

Nice to see  lowther’s new website!

I have one pair of Lowther Accolade 2011 then later one pair of PM4 (which my friend made the cabinet according to the Lowther’s cabinet plan)  After more than 10 years of usage, the 2011’s diaphragm were damage. Lowther offered me the renovation with up-grading DX2 /DX45 to DX3/DX55 and so thoughtfulness to inform me that they would send me the two new pairs of speakers so I could use the packing box with the protection to send back the old pair.  

After the renovation/up-grading the sound of Accolade is more dynamic and vivid, with more details in the music.  My friends who are also “lowther fan”  all agree that now it sounds like a higher level pairs.

I also love the PM4 which my friend made the cabinet ,with the help of the workers in a piano manufacturer, it turned out  to be such a beauty (please see the pictures I enclosed). I do believe these two pair of Lowther speaker will bring me a life-long pleasure!
