Once upon a time in the West

I am in Zurich for my work. Visiting the cd shop is my favourite past time before dinner. During the visit, I came across a cd, once upon a time in the West and i was attracted by its cover, which has a nostalgic feel. Upon checking, it then realize that the movie was before my time from the 1960s.
I quickly bought a sandwich and went back to my hotel to listen to the cd and I was immediately attracted by the music.....

Tannoy mini authographe

I have owned the Tannoy Catebury. However, owing to the constant moving of apartment, I have to settle for a small speakers for easy transportation. From the net, information, The Tannoy Autograph Mini is nothing but a top-notch audiophile loudspeaker, constructed in a rather small version, for better accommodation in multiple places around the room, with zero efforts and max results.
In addition, despite it modest dimensions, the Tannoy Autograph Mini is capable of deploying a stunningly big sound, with far better imaging and transparency than most loudspeakers in the same range and class: it packs the same careful handcrafted and assembled cabinet with most serious internal damping and strutting ensuring almost perfect inertness for better dealing with resonance and vibrations, thus offering a non-colored acoustic response.
The technical details from the net: The core of the Tannoy Autograph Mini is a Dual Concentric 4” driver, a recognized symbol of acoustic performance and sonic reproduction elite. The DC driver is actually a combo, formed by two distinct transducers, coaxially loaded and offering unbelievable capabilities as a point source-dispersion unit. The coaxial loading allows for a sonic reproduction with an extreme natural sound, never leaking the brightness and the brittle of real, day by day life.
While the LF cone is made from multi-fiber paper pulp and sports a rubber surround for extended excursion and ultimately, a deep, tight bass, the HF unit runs on a titanium dome loaded in a Tannoy proprietary Tulip Waveguide. Such a driver complement ensures a frequency range from 68Hz to 54kHz, suitable for high-def formats like the SACD or DVD-Audio as well.
Hand-wired crossovers and 99.99% Van den Hul internal wiring ensure minimal signal loss and a greater transparency for your audio media. The Tannoy Autograph Mini can deliver as much as 50W RMS in 8 Ohms and with 88dB.
This is my second set of mini. I have sold the first set to a friend with deep regret and luckily, I have managed to get one set back again...

Roman Tam

I have managed to find some old Roman Tam CDs as well as others. The Roman shanghai New York cd is very interesting as it was reordered in the states using the big band and most musicians are non Chinese.
