Navinji, I am still pissed we were'nt able to spend more time together. It had initially appeared as if 5 whole days in Mumbai were more than enough to do everything we wanted... but we were so wrong... Mumbai was a whirlwind and I havent seen a week go by faster... Well, theres always a next time...

1. Dont expect Mumbai sales to compare to Delhi. Delhi outsells Mumbai in consumer goods 3:1. You see Delhi pays no tax, has more electricity theft than any other major city in the world, and earns more money in "commisions" that any city in the world. All that expendable income needs an avenue. Besides Delhiites seem to splurge just to keep up with the "Sharmas".

2. Mumbai traffic speeds are 1/3 - 1/4 that of Delhi so you spend more time stuck in traffic and less time doing work esp. on a sales tour.

3. Mumbai's night life is incomparable to anyother city in India, Bangy comes close though. In my younger days partying till 4am and being at work at 8am was the norm 7 days a week.

Speechless at how ridiculously cheap they were, doubtless Is that the next item on your shopping list ? I gotta see your car, Sujit - I really have to.

Again where significant money (for me!) is involved -these decisions take on a life/death hue! .. (I am sure Gunbir too is banging his head somewhere now!)

Since I have no other go.. GURU BABA LOG - Please pool in your views on some of the BEST set of components you have had an opportunity to hear..
Kb, For the fronts, here are some good options I can think of. (in order of budget and budget alone)



1. Illusion Audio Nd6.1 - Rs. 25000/- (definitely the one I have most experience with)

2. Dynaudio System 240 Mk2 - Rs. 30000/-

3. Hertz MLK3 - (I have no clue about the price, never heard it either, but it looks luscious)

4. Alipne F1 series SPX Z15 M - (International list is about USD1500, never bothered about the local price, would be my best bet if I could get it at USD 1000 or under)

5. Focal Utopia BE N6 - (I hear it's about 150,000 locally)

Of these, the Hertz is a 3-way but should be easy to accomodate since one of the drivers is ribbon based. And I also assume it's priced over the Dynaudio and below the Alpine)

You wouldn't get a warranty and bill on the Dynaudio to the best of my knowledge.

Cheapest SQ option would probably be the Infinity Reference Series.

Rainbow pricing in India is through the roof. Add to that the fact that it's expensive abroad too (atleast the lines that matter), and that's serious money. But a little birdy told me PTC does good deals (read as discounts)on high-value products.

Maybe, just maybe you could audition the MB Quart Q series, but i somehow have a feeling that you might get a bit put off by the tweeter.

I exclude the Morels simply because they aren't really the 'punchy, mule-like' types that you desire. And I haven't seen any top-end Morels on store shelves. Just the Pulse series, that is quite ordinary.

Huh?! Night life in Bangy?? Thats a thing of the distant past..
These days all we do is hit bed at 1130, like good boys.. Side benefit (probably intended by the cops) is that it leads to a healthier lifestyle....

Hmm... I agree with B&T... Morels are a bit soft and mushy, their mid/bass is not to my taste, but their high end tweeters are nice. Everything else below is pretty much ordinary.

The new Dyns 242 can be bought in India for 44000. And more in line with your taste. We like them over the Morels and Focals for sure.

The Mille sets are a different breed of product. You have to hear them to believe that. FYI the MLK3 is priced at INR 128000.

Also, the new SEAS Reference are dur for launch shortly. Whatsay KB?
