KENT JOHNSON'S SYSTEM

LOUDSPEAKERS
Magneplanar MG1.6

ELECTRONICS
Dodd Audio Midline tube preamplifier. Rogue 90 Stereo tube amplifier.

SOURCES
Sony SCD-C333ES SACD/CD player for SACD. The Sony feeds a Cullen Circuits DL3 Stage III modded PS Audio DAC for CD replay.

CABLES
DH Labs Revelation interconnect cables. Alpha Core Goertz MI2 speaker cables. My digital cable is two meters of Belden 1694A video cable terminated with Eichmann Bullet Plugs. It works great. Here is the article that the information for making it came from: PFO Issue 14, "Why longer is generally better for an S/PDIF Digital Cable," by Steve Nugent.

ACCESSORIES
Monster HTS 3600 MKII line conditioner on the source components. I have four dedicated circuits available to me, three twenty amp and one fifteen amp. The Rogue and Hafler are each on their own twenty amp circuits. The front-end equipment is on another. The fifteen amp circuit is not in use at the moment. I have a pair of AKG K240 headphones.

SECOND SYSTEM

LOUDSPEAKERS
Quad 21L 2 loudspeakers.

ELECTRONICS
VTL 50-50 stereo tube amplifier. Audio Experience +R tube preamplifier.

SOURCE
Sony SCD-C333ES SACD/CD player.

CABLES
DH Labs BL-1 interconnect cables terminated with Eichmann Bullet Plugs. Speaker cable is MITerminator 4 bi-wire cabling.

ACCESSORIES
Monster HTS 3600 MKII line conditioner. AC current comes from a dedicated 20 amp circuit shared with the home theater set up in the family room. They are never both on at the same time.

 

I heard the GURUs for the first time at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest where I got to listen to Ingvar Öhman, their designer. He talked about the design of his speakers and what went into their manufacture. I also got to meet Lars Erickson, the managing director for Sjöfen HiFi at RMAF. Sjöfen is the North American importer of GURU Loudspeakers, SUPRA loud speaker cables, and several other brands, that for some reason, are not spelled in all capital letters. I had met Lars online last summer when I purchased some SUPRA speaker cables. Lars contacted me late in 2008 and asked me if I would like to review the GURU speakers for Positive Feedback Online.

The Swedish-made Guru QM10 loudspeaker is a small, two-way monitor loudspeaker. It measures only 12 inches wide by 10 inches deep, by 9.5 inches tall and weighs just 13 pounds.  A single pair of European-style 4mm binding posts is located on the rear of the enclosure.

The drivers consist of a 16mm German-made tweeter and 102mm (four-inch) paper-coned midrange/woofer made by Tymphany of Denmark to GURU's specifications. These work in a vented 10-liter enclosure and are crossed over at 2,700 Hz. GURU claims a low-frequency response down to 30Hz. That's low for any speaker, much less one this small.

The GURU QM10 truly is a monitor loudspeak...
