Re: Sonority roller platform

£1500 was the RRP on their website for a made-to-measure roller platform when I won this one and it was made for me based on my measurements, including maquette in MDF being provided to ensure the points would be positioned suitably. Also got to spend the day at the listening room with Asian takeawa...

Re: Sonority roller platform

The RRP of the roller platform was £1500.

I won that one, which was made to measure for my kit (Cyrus at the time, but works well/better under BC), in a CU charity raffle a few years ago.

Re: Stereo 200 turning off at volume, more power? x300 sig?

It could be a gain issue. I ran a Marantz amp as a pre into a 6 power and it caused the 6 power to cut out when the volume was turned up - though I rarely had it as loud as it looks like the op. When the juice from the pre it too great for the amp, the amp protection circuits cut in. However, this i...

Re: Speaker stands - heavy or light?

Maybe think again, I’ve just checked the specs and they’re 60cm high. They’re in my storage unit so couldn’t measure and my mind was playing tricks on me as I last had my DM4 speakers on them, which themselves are about 40cm high.

Re: Spotify - cheapest way to hear through my system

I have a spare google chromecast. You can have it for the price of postage. Only thing to consider is the U.K. plug.

I don’t have the original 3.5mm jack-to-jack lead they come with, but do have a perfectly good optical cable I can include, 3.5mm to toslink. That’s how I used to listen to Spotify.

Re: Speaker stands - heavy or light?

If it helps I have a pair of each I’ve not got around to listing in the classifieds:

Atacama ‘light’, 60cm high, unfilled, bit scratched. Think I want £20 + postage
Partington ‘heavy’ Broadside, part-filled,90cm high. Think I want £100 + postage

Heights estimated, to be confirmed.
