Re: Speaker Isolation - pretty amazing results..

Update. Things are going well with the speaker isolation. In addition to the direct benefits already described the in-direct benefit is that it's a lot easier to move the speakers around generally and so play with positioning and fine tuning 8) Recently I also acquired a couple of IanMac filters fro...

Re: Inexpensive DACs from the far east.

The Topping D50 I ordered has arrived. ... Early days, but after 12 hrs running I have to admit Im gobsmacked at the performance. I cannot distinguish any difference between the SQ of the Topping D50 and my Benchmark DAC1 HDR via Cyrus Smartpower and KEF ref 1.2. using CD 16/44 and my Renderer for ...

Speaker Isolation - pretty amazing results..

Something I've been meaning to do for a while - the Leema Xone's have spikes and due to wooden floors I've always used metal spike shoes. All well and good however moving the speakers is a pain since you need 3 pairs of hands to get each shoe exactly under the spike. But hey, no big deal. Anyway thi...

Re: a petition that already has 4.986 million signatures

As soon as the 'meaningful parliament vote' was added at the start of the process the whole thing was doomed - you can't please everyone and months of negotiations mean nothing. Was implementing the 'meaningful vote' the correct thing to do? I'm not sure. It was asking MP 'do you want more power?', ...

Ghost Stories

Watched this on Netflix recently.

Great acting and script, nicely shot and good soundtrack. Not gory but some bits will scare the bejeebers out of you! ;D

Re: Has this happened to other CU members?

I remember reading on a forum once that someone was hosting a party when a rather inebriated female guest mistook the tweeter on his B&W speakers for a microphone and tried to pick it up to do karaoke! ;D

Re: Sonic Boom required for floor standers

Hiya Dropkick, Looking at old reviews of the B&W P4 they describe the bass as 'full' and even 'rich and you mention that you want to keep this character. With this is mind I would steer clear of brands such as ATC, Spendor - their bass would be too accurate for you IMO. Also I don't think a stan...

Re: Has this happened to other CU members?

Indeed I was 'disturbed' at first but actually all the cr*p has slightly worked to deaden the room a bit so not too bad in the end ;)
