Last night we hooked up our old pair of NHT Model 13's, which were used in the studio until they were blown out by a pesky power amp a few years back. The 13's are kind of an updated version of the Model 1's, which were NHT's first speakers.

We had left them in the hall, where they were rescued by Glauco and brought back to life. He then resold them to us for the cost of the new speaker cones. As Glauco says, they "kick AHHSSS."

So we plugged them in and took 'em for a whirl. They're nice and pleasant to listen to, sort of NS-10ish. Not a lot of low end (when we switch back to the 20/20's you can really feel the difference) but not fatiguing at all. David Gilmour's first solo record sounded great through these things, although that may have something to do with the Honky Chateau...

At some point we'll get a proper power amp for them, but until then they're being run by our Pioneer receiver, which also powers our shitty little bookshelf speakers.

So we're now at three sets of speakers for mixing, and will be adding the crappy old Sony boombox back into the mix (so to speak) soon.

And the iPod button ear-plugs thingys.

EVERYTHING must be checked on the lil' buds.

I woulda negotiated with Glauco on these. "...Hey man, I'll hand out the new keys AND collect signatures if you give me those speakers".
