    Speaker coupling & isolation

    Tried the Townshend springs but sounds the same as just sitting on thick carpet with foam furniture sliders underneath so the sliders are now permanent additions.

    Oppo Uhd 4K Player

    Checked my 205 yesterday, no firmware updates were available.
  5. I haven't heard the devialet but they do seem to be well regarded and a cheaper option plus have the WAF .
  6. Lol...you don't need powerball to afford them Dave !! A good reviewer going the extra mile to review the SCM50 ASL in both active and passive configuration and clearly explaining the improvements offered by active.
  7. The Kii Three sound better than the B&W 800D3 I heard recently , so not only will you reduce box count but also get an upgrade in sound quality. Try to audition quality active speakers , such as dutch and dutch , devialet , atc , sgr and the Kii.

    California Labs CD

    Fo stereo listening make sure the Oppo stereo outputs are set to Down Mixed Stereo. If they are set to front left/right they will be affected by the settings in the multichannel menu and may be diverting bass to the lfe channel . The Oppo 95 , 105 and 205 are not lacking in bass , the measurements show they are very linear and work superbly as a preamp connected directly to a power amp or to active speakers.
  9. A real piano finish on these , not just gloss car paint that many other manufacturers use and falsely claim to be a piano finish.

    Ready Player One

    Very under rated movie , thoroughly enjoyed it and as mentioned the audio and video is also excellent .

    My System this morning

    Bet that Wadia WT-3200 sounds wonderful with the Stax Dac X1t.
