Cuneyt is the web
master of Istanbul Hi Fi Club's web
site. For the last two years he has taken care of the site with great
dedication and kept it regularly updated.
Visually his system is one of the most
attractive and occupies the main living room with style. It consists of
JADIS electronics and Cabasse speakers (satellite and subwoofer). With
the exception of cables it is entirely French. Cuneyt's French wife Pascale
likes the system very much. Congratulations Cuneyt, an excellent way to
Cuneyt listens to Jazz (65%) and Classical

about his System:
AA: "Cuneyt, how would you describe
your system's sound?"
CG: "It gives the feeling of "being
there" and has good presence in low volume."
AA: "Do you think there is room
CG: "I would want to enlarge the
sound stage, but this is something which also depends of the room. Hopefully
I'll move in two years and have a dedicated listening room."
AA: "Have you got plans for upgrading?"
CG: "I will try to upgrade my "no
name" power cords. For the CD system, I'll wait and see like my other friends"
Re-Visit Notes (22 January 2000)
With the exception of Jadis JA 30 power amps,
Cuneyt renewed his whole system. Still this drastic renewal is made with
delicacy by respecting some well received traditions: Jadis / Cabasse partnership
and "Made in France" equipment.
As there are so many changes let me give you the
component details of the new system.

Cabasse Adriatis are one of the best looking speakers
I've seen to date. Cuneyt told me that his wife Pascal also likes them
very much. Their three-way spherical units contain the tweeter, high-mid
and low-mid units in a concentric fashion. The white main body contains
2 x 30 cm. push-pull configured woofers.
Sonically Cuneyt's new system was much better
than his previous one. The sound was silky sweet, detailed, effortless,
untiring. The mids had body and the bass was well extended. The only problematic
area was the bass tightness and detail. The low power Jadis JA 30 amps
seemed to have difficulties to drive the woofer units of the new Cabasse
speakers. Cuneyt is well aware of this problem and seriously considering
to buy new power amps with some more muscle. Nevertheless, the overall
sound was very pleasant and musical.
Well done, Cuneyt! Happy listening!
