Sound Damped Steel Isofeet

Set of four of the old type. 80mm round ones. A bit rough around the edges (literally) but they do the job.
£10 to Comic Relief.

Re: What vinyl did you spin recently?

The 2012 Warner Bros US pressing of RHCP Californication. Way more listenable than the infamous CD.

Re: speakers on ebay

do you miss the ribbon tweeter? I liked the ribbon tweeter. It's actually very subtle. The Epicons have a sense of "air" and range of treble that's quite something. They're somehow not "bright" with it, but on extended listening I was finding them a little over-reliant on the so...

Re: different re-masters - experiment

In some of instances, upgrading to the best master of an album is second only to upgrading your speakers (maybe your amp at a push). The differences can be that profound in my experience. You were lucky to find three different masters on a streaming service. One of the problems with streaming is the...

Re: Cyrus components failing

Sig products used to qualify for a 5 year warranty but this was discontinued & they now only qualify for 3 years. In the context of this thread I wonder whether the 5 year warranty was proving unsustainable on cost grounds. What does IIRC mean? If I Remember Correctly. That 5 year warranty offe...

Re: Cyrus components failing

My standby recommendation was with the DAC-XP Sig in mind. That thing gets warm just on standby, and there's a lot crammed into a little box with no ventilation. Better to keep it at constant temperature in my opinion. IIRC, the manual concurs.

At least Cyrus offer a 5 year warranty now.

Re: Cyrus components failing

They’re not the most reliable of brands but you have been unlucky there.

Is there a factory reset procedure for the streamer you can try?

Do you leave the system on standby 24/7? Because that’s essential in my experience.

Re: AG500 AC regen - still a bargain

It was the new 1500 I was looking at. I think for the time being I will put it at the bottom of the list rather than the top. Your DAC has a battery and your streamer a very good LPSU so I'd be amazed if there was any difference. Mains is bottom of my upgrade list too. Partly because both my DAC an...
