  1. I use Canare L-4E6S star quad xlr cable with gold neutrik xlr on my 100ASL. I have expensive xlr siltech , ps audio , furutech etc sitting in the cupboard that I'll get around to selling .
  2. The Wild Bunch. Once upon a time in the west. True grit ...coen brothers remake. And of course The good the bad and the ugly.
  3. I'd like to have a listen. ...Fridays or Saturdays preferable but can probably do a weeknight.
  4. Superb system you have there Tobes. That Benchmark HPA4 is on my radar as a state of the art preamp and headphone amp.
  5. Congratulations on a great buy. Mine are in a 7.6 x 5.0 room , set up 3.4 metres apart , the front baffle is 1.5m from the front wall and they have around 1.8m from the sidewalls. I'm also augmenting them with two ATC subwoofers which have the same Super Linear bass quality as the main speakers and integrate superbly.
  6. Great price for as new active scm40.
  7. Looks better and prefer the square avatars.
  8. Cool video.....finally new Rammstein material , 10 years since their last album.!
  9. Lovely looking things , with state of the art engineering and built to last a lifetime or two.
  10. Once you've owned a good DD turntable like an SP10 there's no going back to belt drive.
  11. I recommend you audition ATC SCM7 V3 , ATC SCM11 V2 and ATC SCM19 V2 .
  12. Small selection of the stuff that never gets old for me , on very regular rotation over the decades. Rainbow. ...Rising. UFO. .....Strangers in the night. Led Zeppelin. ...Physical Graffiti. Rush......2112. Queen....News of the world. Van Halen.......Van Halen. Nirvana.....In Utero. Rammstein.....Mutter. AC/DC....Powerage. Iron Maiden. ..Piece of mind. Joe Satriani....The Extremist.
  13. 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.
  14. Checked my 205 yesterday, no firmware updates were available.
  15. I haven't heard the devialet but they do seem to be well regarded and a cheaper option plus have the WAF .
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. A real piano finish on these , not just gloss car paint that many other manufacturers use and falsely claim to be a piano finish.
  20. Very under rated movie , thoroughly enjoyed it and as mentioned the audio and video is also excellent .
  21. Bet that Wadia WT-3200 sounds wonderful with the Stax Dac X1t.
  22. Maybe...Depends how much the static issue will cost to fix.......techs here in Perth charge like a wounded bull.
  23. Sent my pm before posting here....☺️
  24. Pm sent with intention to buy.
