  1. Hi Paul Man if you can align in 30 minutes - you are my hero. But from my experience it should take you a little longer if you are doing all the steps. Neither style arm tube should make a difference. But maybe you are already doing all the steps and have mastered it. Here is my two cents on suggestions: The Dennesen Soundtraktor looks similar to the Dr Feikurt protractor which I have used before. Both won't get you super close to perfect alignment. But perfect in my book is bloody impossible. Let's say they get you 85% to 90% perfect alignment - we are talking
  2. Yeah - also really like the Moerch arms. Using DP6 on a Gyro SE. Running a red precision (Benz Wood S L) and a green narrow (EMT JSD P6.0). Nice to be able to swap arms - and still have half the adjustments already set. Ability to go to 12" length is also a great design element. However - I didn't find either style to be harder or easier to use during alignment - same for both. Alignment always takes me about 2 hours. It's a pain in the toosh. What protractor are you using? Do you find that the azimuth adjustment a little weird? To
  3. Hi Geoff WLM Diva - very nice speakers. I believe they can get rather complex with the modules. Very interesting piece of engineering this WLM kit. I added one T9/i to my setup and then another T9/i. The journey with tuning the sub-woofer to my 2 channel setup has been about 12 months now. Below are my tips from my journey - but I'm sure it won't apply to every setup so absorb and test what you think works for you - or hopefully it will give you some path to take on your journey. Give the sub what it needs to be able to perform its best. Biggest improvements listed
  4. Sorry the delayed feedback Mr57. I would classify this mod as purely speaker/room/listen chair positioning - probably the most vital initial setup phase. The leg dimensions are based off the blue print that is available on the web - posted to Teti on 25/6/2011. https://mniec.wordpress.com/2011/06/25/quad-esl-57-siderails-sidefeets-blueprint/ Shout out to Teti if he every reads this - thank for putting this online bro. The listening chair I use most is the Eames Lounge and Ottoman. After testing a few chairs - this chair is angled right and has a good height for hifi
  5. I've listened to the ATC SCM150ASLT - tower series - powered. Amazing mids - arguably one of the best mids on the planet. Warm, detailed, fast, textured, deep sound stage - amazing! The new in-house tweeter and the mid driver are world class. But even with the 15" woofer of the SCM150 - it was not a bass heavy presentation. Bass was not a strong point of the ATC speaker - but mids are 5 star. It's a matter of taste - but ATC is a great speaker. As a good comparison - the PMC BB5se has killa bass with its 15" driver and transmission line configur
  6. Re-post - price is negotiable / offers welcome. Purchased new from local supplier just over 3 years ago. Still using stock tubes with total hour count of 1,625 hours over 3 years. Unit is in perfect working condition and is pristine in appearance. Unit is complete with manual, QC sheets, power cable, screw driver, remote control, and original box. Remote control has hardly been used at all. Also have a full set of spare tubes for the unit which are brand new – Sovtek 1 x 6550WE, and 4 x 6H30. Really loved this unit. Very good user interface. I
  7. Further information: EMT's cream of the crop cartridge. Sound is clear, precise, and beguiling. Like the clouds went away and the sky is crystal clear and the sun in shining. Heavy unit at 18g. Diamond, alnico, gold plated. Purchased new about 3 years ago from Australia supplier - first installed 11/2/17. Last installed was 9/12/19. Total logged hours is 536 hours (yes written down and recorded for this unit since purchasing) - but listening hours would be far less - probably half of this - say 300 real hours of listening. Not used often enough. Burn in hap

  9. Hi Paul Hope you are well. Are you interested in a M10 pre amp or SA-Ref power amp? regards Ken
  10. Agree with Aperalim. The type/brand of binding post makes a difference. The Furutech Torque Guard binding posts - when used - hold spade connectors in exceptionally well. When tightening the screw it literally torques down the spade like a torque wrench. Very cool to use - very smart design.
  11. Stock Quad 57's have always been such a classic speaker to me. The stock look is so iconic. But having lived with them for about 10 years I've always wanted to get them at the right height and angle to my listening chair. Logically speaking it is probably best to have the panels raised to around ear level and tilted slightly forward. In the past I've put them on chairs and bricks to see what changes would occur, but have never found a good permanent solution. I bet a whole bunch of you guys out there have probably done the same. For 63's I found the speaker to b
