Topic: Selecting a Reference Speaker & Owner
BAS member Dave Moran has a pair of Infinity P362 loudspeakers.
He wants to donate them to the Boston Audio Society on the condition that
they will be available for BAS meetings that require a quality listening
The September meeting will compare the P362 to the Sony
SS-MB350 loudspeaker often used at our meetings. If we like the Infinity
P362 loudspeakers, we will need a volunteer to, when required, bring the
speakers to BAS meetings at Boston University. The volunteer will have full
use of the speakers at his/her home.
The Infinity speakers are Olive-and Toole-blessed, famously
blind-tested, easy to transport and carry. They are floor standing. The
frequency response on and off axis is very good.
Following are comments by Dave about the speakers -
These speakers perform well. They go loud and have a strong response down
to 40 Hz. They employ the MMD (metal-matrix diaphragm) drivers David Griesinger
has been enthusiastic about (low distortion). The SRP was $600/pair and
recently discontinued. They are 1-meter high. Driver complement comprises
woofers 6.5" x 2, mid 4" x 1, and one 3/4" tweeter. The crossovers
are 350 Hz and 3.3 kHz, 24 dB/octave slopes.
