  1. What was the take on these speakers? There seemed to be a lot of enthusiasm but, on release, things have been quite quiet with comments about how the speakers are picky in terms of the electronics etc.
  2. What the role of the AVR in the new setup? Is analogue output sent to an A to D before going to the dialogue?
  3. Thanks. I could use an air gap but, if I've got the figures right, then 80Hz would mean 1m which is impractical in our room? How would Earthwool from Bunnings work as a "fluffy"?
  4. How about a DDRC-22D unit ahead of the dialogue? https://www.minidsp.com/products/dirac-series/product-line-summary
  5. Any idea as to how the Greenstuff 2.5 compare to the Martini HD / XHD in terms of suitability for superchunks?
  6. I'm after a bunch of Absorb HD or XHD but not had much luck here in Perth. Who was the supplier?
  7. A while back I made a similar change - from DIY active speakers plus subs to a well put together commercial speaker with inbuilt active subs. It was a step forward in sound quality and a leap in terms of WAF plus simplicity. There is something calming about removing all the components so one has no diversion s to tweaks and/ or upgrades. Enjoy.
  8. What does the last part mean? “... by no means perfect and I hate adding more” And what height stands are you using with the Gales? The original stands are 20” which puts tweeter well below ear but I’ve not seen suitable 24-26” stands
  9. How much is the speaker elevated when one installs the Gaia 2? The web-site mentions a height of 35mm but it's not clear if this is the height of the base (i.e., it lifts the speaker by 35mm) or the full height of the unit including the thread.
  10. I'm in a similar situation - speakers situated on a suspended wood floor and can feel the floor vibrate when music has strong bass tracks. The idea of isolation makes sense to me but it does assume that the driver is the speakers to stands to floor as opposed to the floor-boards being driven by the airborne vibrations. Is this likely to be true? Are the Gaia "squishy" - so as to decouple the floor from the speaker?

  13. Yes, it's a bit cliched, but we're doing a New Year clean-out and I'm just down from the shed looking at 5 large tubs of CD that never get used following these having been ripped to a NAS. I thought that I was keeping these as a back-up "just in case" but the move to on-line streaming has put that in question. I don't have the patience to photo all the covers then sell, putting them in the bin seems like a massive waste and options for donations seem limited here in Perth. What are y'all doing with old CD that have been ripped?
  14. So, as a precursor, there's a lot of potential change with, now, an AVR so I'm re-looking at a centre channel to anchor voice for off-axis listeners (noting that right now vocals are good with the L/R stereo speakers at the main listening position). The practical situation, though, would be that if I got a centre channel then a) the speaker won't be identical to the L/R speakers or even from a matching set, b) speaker will need to sit on the A/V cabinet beneath the TV and c) high of tweeter will be below that of the L/R speakers. (The other aspect is that if I don't use a centre then the extra space means that it's possible to get the tweeters of the L/R speakers aligned with the middle of the TV screen) . So, then, I'm wondering, then, if it's likely to be a fruitful path given these constraints.
  15. So something like https://www.triadspeakers.com/products/home-cinema/ic-silver6-monitor/ or https://www.digitalcinema.com.au/psb-c-lcr-2-way-in-ceiling-speaker.html or https://www.digitalcinema.com.au/psb-c-sur-2-way-in-ceiling-surround-speaker.html (the last of which seems to useable for both side and rear channels?). Any recommendations as to excellent in-ceilings would be much appreciated.
