  1. @JimmyiovinE hi I am keen to buy the speakers at that price, I’m in Brisbane. regards David
  2. MC cart, worth trying?

    Sir Sanders - IMO great to try different phono stages and they do make a big difference, however in the end, what ever the phono stage, the basic strengths and weaknesses of the cart is what set the "structure" of the sound you get. The Dynavector 17D3 is a great great cart, ran one for several years and its top draw IMO, but it is fast, detailed, arguably more neutral and "accurate" in the midrange and treble than any others, but it is also and a bit lean in the bass and lack both warmth in the upper bass and slam in the lower to mid bass, there no getting around the compromise of that very very short cantilever. If you like the sound and it suits your system it is possibly one of the best at any price, that why its been in production for so long, but if you need or want a difference balance then it a different cart not a different phon stage (IMO) - and yep going from a Grado to 17D3 is going to be a shock.

  11. I may be a pendant in all this, but I think its very generic, and not all the helpful, to talk stand mount v floor stander at all. Especially for any "newbies" that may come across this thread. There are many examples of stand mounts with large internal volume and large capable woofers and subsequent good and deep bass response just as there are many floor standers with small internal volume and small bass drivers and hence limited abilities bass response. As just one example JBL have some massive stand mounts, past and present and compare that to and of the many slim tower floor standers that are so trendy today - Totem Arro a classic example. The real issues are any, however, in room frequency response ( generally more bass with larger internal volume and woofer size) and dispersion (generally better with small frontal area and appropriate size mid and treble drivers ) are some common factors
  12. Did I damage my KEF LS-50?

    I understand its time consuming to read entire threads, or even go back to the OP, and so easy to pick up on other, mistaken, comments. So lets get it right, the OP did not play the 1812 through his L50s at all ! The video was an example taken from the web to show L50s with large excursion. The OP had a DAC problem with 24 bit-192 kHz files that made a loud sound through his speakers. And I have no idea how you extrapolated from SAVI that he was implying to play 1812 ???
  13. Toyota C-HR - World's Ugliest Car?

    They will probably put cameras and "safety sensors" all around the thing to compesate although perhaps blame the Nissan Juke for starting the ugly SUV thing
  14. The link is for a 1570 intergrated amplifier, this has no HT bypass, the 1570 preamplifier does and yep that's confusing ?
