  1. Awesome kit and if you like a fully active, no wire, no boxes hi-end system with designer looks and incredible sound, do audition these. Surprisingly good for an innovative take on the usual box speakers designs.
  2. I bought one of these a little while ago and paid same but just for TT. This is a screaming bargain with a quality cart and cover included. Plug and play plus they sound very sweet as well!
  3. I have one of these TTs and am totally happy even though I was a previously a die hard idler convert. very easy to set up, and the carbon arm is an engineering feat. Well worth an audition
  4. On their website the specs say this PSU has SMPS regulation, so does that introduce something that a linear PSU might not?
  5. Had the same pre amp for many years and was totally content. The melody is a piece of engineering /manufacturing brilliance that sounds, importantly wonderful. I had mine for many years using various sources with the same power amp- a Macintosh mc275.
  6. As mentioned you don’t to introduce another dongle into the chain as the phantoms work off either Ethernet or PLC. As long as the dialog in the other room uses the same electrical circuit as the power points in the av room then all is good, PLC works it’s magic. Also as mentioned tv optical out to a phantom. If you then get lip sync/ latency issues there is a work around.
  7. Put me down for seconds if the deal doesn’t proceed pls?
  8. https://miniot.com/pages/wheel-by-miniot this looks very interesting from a design perspective. Love the minimalist form factor and overal concept. The proof of this pudding will be in the listening, if it commercialises. Hmmm, tracking weight and alignment is all out of sight to think about.
  9. My room isn’t treated, ie hard floor and one side and back wall of mostly glass, 6m x 10m. Any active (or non active) speaker system will be hit or miss depending on its enviroment , hence room treatment is key. If we cant treat the room then digital room correction is a great option. As you mention, a treated and enclosed room could work if it flattens the right things, or an open room equally works too. These speakers are very non fuss regarding placement ie back and side wall, and still throw a wide sound stage and are quite onmi directional. However, tweaking brings out their best ie stands, correct height and some toe in. Without the dspeaker correction I was content (yes naively) until experiencing the difference. I have had many different set ups, perhaps my stacked quad 57s with subs and valve amps were my benchmark, without being $ ridiculous. Stacked quads create an immense radiated sound that your whole body absorbs, and their midrange is totally intoxicating. Back to your question, my thoughts are these speakers aren’t overly bass sounding it’s full spectrum, they have that ability to sound awesome at low listening volumes which most people do, but when played loud they can alter your heart rhythm in a nice way 🙂
  10. Welcome to the club Snoopy. I have had the Silvers then the Golds for a few years now and did the same minimalisation trick as you......less is best....less boxes, cables and cords. Recently I added a dual core DSP unit and it has really tamed the bass humps and made the system sound much better. My room isn’t overly difficult but the before and after measurements are amazing. No raat as you mention but many use Roon through a RPi or Mac mini. The Devialet user forum has more. i run a mac mini using spark (not great) and a Project digital phono for the TT. I loved the Golds before the DSP addition, now I am completely besotted.
  11. Awesome package here,.......you get incredibly sounding speakers, amplification, dac built in and no need for expensive cables, hi fi racks, boxes and clutter. Add some pics, to do the Phantoms justice as this system is revolutionary and pleasing on the eye without the usual stacked box look.
