    Meadowlark Heron i speakers - can anyone share PDF of owner's manual?

    Welcome Craig. Hopefully someone will come through for you soon. I have a pair of HR Shearwaters that I bought about 18 years ago and love to this day. I would consider the Herons if I ever find a pair at a reasonable price. I am sure that you love yours!

    Shearwater love!

    Lot's of Shearwater love in this group Erik! They just sound so effortlessly awesome. Pat sure knows his business; dare I say that he is a true giant in the speaker designer realm!

    Shearwater love!

    Sadly Erik, I do not remember noticing the front end equipment. I just listened in rapt attention, literally frozen in the sweet spot!

    You sound like a very happy camper! And you are so right...those foam surrounds have been added on. Enjoy!

    Kestrels : bought an old pair

    You will love these speakers highfell. Like Erik, I moved from the Kestrel HR to the Shearwater HR. Still have the shearwaters, still love them. I don’t remember the Kestrels having the foam tweeter ring. Regardless, the foam deteriorated on my shearwater tweeters so I replaced them with felt...

    Just Joined had no idea that Meadowlark was still around own pair of Kestrel Hot Rod

    I had a pair of Kestrel HRs and then moved up to the HR Shearwaters. I agree with our PM: the Shearwaters are better in all aspects. They are still my speakers to this day and I still love their sound!

    A big Hello from Hamilton ON Canada

    Yes! I really like his design philosophy. It just makes sense to me. Very similar to me liking Pat McGinty's design philosophy in speaker design. And their products produce wonderful sound! I only have one arm on my Interspace. Do you have two arms on yours Thermionics?

    A big Hello from Hamilton ON Canada

    What kinda details are you looking for PM (besides my equipment list)? So far I have only had 3 amplifiers hooked up to the shearwaters; an Audiolab 8000A (60w/ch), a two box Pro-Ject class D (80w/ch) and my present Atoll IN200SE (120w/ch). The Atoll is great. It's only weakness is the display...

    Awesome! I totally love that you still have your collection. Now I feel even more welcome in this group...another ento-nerd!

    Shearwater love!

    Totally agree. The urge to upgrade is a real thing that infects all of us audio-nuts. I am thrilled with my system right now and I am sure that you are thrilled with your system too. I'd rather discover new and challenging music!

    Shearwater love!

    I used to regularly haunt all of the audio stores in Hamilton and area. And there were lots in the 70s and 80s: Anderson Sound, Schneider Sound, Globe Audio, Westdale Audio and Ancaster Audio. I listened to countless systems in these shops and in friend's rooms. Only two times I heard a system...

    A big Hello from Hamilton ON Canada

    I joined this very interesting group over a week ago. I've been quietly getting the lay of the land and I am very impressed (and somewhat intimidated) by the knowledge and impressive systems of the members. I am a recently retired entomologist in Biology at McMaster University. So insects and...
