Five Pairs & Counting

Discussion in 'Meadowlark Audio Forum' started by Mike Tessier, Mar 11, 2018.

  1. I became enamored with Meadowlark speakers when I went to check out a CL ad for a pair of B&W 800s, I just wanted to see and hear them. The seller (John who later became a good friend) also had a pair of Ospreys. I was much more impressed with them than the B&Ws.

    Since then I've bought every pair I could get my hands on. So far I have (in order of acquisition):
    Swifts
    Kestral HRs
    Ospreys
    Swallows
    Kestral lls

    I also have a swan center channel.

    They all sound great! Meadowlarks.JPG

  2. Kestral HRs on the front porch, driven by a restored Setton RS 440. These sound very good in the near-field from the couch opposite.

    I listen to them the most in the summertime when I spend evenings on the porch. I have all the windows open to let the classical or jazz leak into the neighborhood.

    Welcome to The Haven @Mike Tessier :)

    Really beautiful speakers. :)
     
  4. Thanks!

    I love the way the wood grain of the dark ash Swifts appear to crawl around the drivers.

    Thanks for posting the pictures. So nice to be able to see them in one space and really compare size, design, etc. All lovely and beautifully made. I can only imagine how great they sound. You are a lucky man!

    That is gorgeous. Cool trick he did there.
     
  7. I love the darker finish too. These versions are so enjoyable look at. A beautiful pair of Swallows popped up in Sarasota, FL if anyone is near there.
     
  8. Wow, Cherry with the grill socks and for $300!!

    If I didn't have already have a pair I'd be contacting the seller about shipping.
