Transmaster Posted June 27, 2018 Report Share Posted June 27, 2018 Just refurbished my W-35’s with Mundorf E-Cap Plains. Wonderful sound. I decided to do an A/B comparison between the W-35’s, and a pair of modern Polk Audio RTi A3’s. The A3 are one of the best speaker deals on the market right now at $239.95 a pair. The W35’s are powered by a Lepai LP-2020 TI class “D” amp 20 Watts x2. The A3’s were on my Yamaha RX-A770 in a 2.1 configuration 95 Watts X 2, and a Klipsch subwoofer with about 500 watts. The W35’s completely blew the A3’s out of the water. I could not believe a 48 year old set of speakers could beat out a modern book shelf speaker of about the same size even with the subwoofer’s help. The W35 have scintillating sound, crystal clear. Smooth lows. I was impressed with these speakers when I purchased them in 1972, I am even more impressed now. A lot of this improvement must be credited to the E-Caps for just $23 Dollars It made a giant killer out of these W35’s. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
