Loudspeaker Review Follow-up (2)

Alacrity Audio Caterthun Loudspeaker system – II
I just did read your review for the Alacrity Audio Caterthun Loudspeaker system. When you say “Do remember though that these are not speakers that you can put into any old system” Does it mean that my new old McIntosh MC2200 is to old for this?
I am so proud of my new amp, it sound really good, I tought that was the best buy I made.
What can be wrong?

Hi Alain,
‘Any old’ is an English expression that really means ‘any’ and not specifically ‘old’. A bit confusing to others, and I will try and avoid the phrase in future. The point about the Caterthuns is that they are tuned to work with a very narrow choice of equipment (source/amp) where other commercial speakers are often designed to work with a wider range of equipment. In other words, the designer is going for the best sound, rather than the highest number of potential sales.
So your old McIntosh may work perfectly with the Caterthuns but it would be necessary to hear the result before parting with your money. It’s the usual issue of ‘system synergy’ but much more critical with the Caterthuns.
That was what I wanted to convey in the review.
