  1. Unfortunately doesn't work for me ! I still get the same" Failed to stream" message. The SBT will play files from my laptop as usual. When I check for software updates by using the touch pad interface on the SBT itself the latest updates are not available, & still shows version 7. etc even after updating to 8.0 on the laptop. Can Someone check their SBT, by going through settings & see if it shows LMS8.0 on the actual unit? That of course won't help me as such, but may offer an explanation. Bugger, was working fine until Nov. Any suggestions to help much appreciated, I've uninsta
  2. Also fully agree with your comments Steve. I was looking to replace my speakers at the time, & the thought of buying something made just down the road from me, was very appealing, especially as I really liked their appearance.
  3. Was there also, and agree totally, very disappointed for all concerned.
  4. Hi Dave, As I posted much earlier, I've used a valve pre into a s/s power amp for a number of years. However have now reversed that, with no gain issues👍. Not line Magnetic but 805 valve monoblocs, loving the result, come & have a listen. Speakers, somewhat similar. Cheers.
  5. Hmmmm! Where to begin? Chahn designed / specified the room to sound excellent from the off! Once the Magicos were dialled in , prior to any room treatment the system gelled without any OBVIOUS deficiencies. Relax fellow and enjoy it! says I. But Chahn rightfully insisted it could sound better, there were no problems to address as such, just a pursuit of raising the bar so to speak. He has succeeded greatly, the system can play far too loud without strain or signs of distortion. The soundstage is massive & almost enveloping, the noise floor has dropped, so micro details are clearer wit
  6. Yes, as I said I had/have the same issue when using my valve pre. The solution likely involves increasing a resistor value to reduce gain, instead you have one in the interconnect chain. Try to relax & see if the pre suits your taste, it certainly looks to have the goods👍
  7. Hi Dave, Had a similar issue, when I went from a passive pre to a valve pre, too much gain meaning very little adjustment via the volume pot. I suggest you try Rothwell -10db connectors prior to your power amp, if unable to find anything else is the problem. I have a pair you're welcome to try. If the noise is in the signal chain they will be effective.
  8. Incredible sounds/ music was heard when the c-3850 was introduced to Chanh's already magnificent system. I've read reviews where soundstages have extended to the outer limits of the room & beyond, & thought "so what!", but to experience it was a blast, but with @Tasso in charge of the volume control, you almost needed to duck for cover. It was somewhat reassuring to hear, that those who can afford it, get something worthwhile for their money. Thanks Chahn for the experience, back home now to a different reality 😪
  9. Certainly will, all being well of course, I'll look forward to it👍
  10. OK back to basics! While @robmid's build of the stereo coffee pre was here in WA, I had the opportunity to listen to it in @Steve M system & also took it home to try there. Steve was playing through my old Jamo Concert 11 s, which he now owns & also Sonus Faber Guaneri Speakers. The SC clearly allowed the different presentation of the speakers to be heard, + and -s. In fact transparent was the overall description I concluded. I have previously owned passive pres by Musical Fidelity & Audio Synthesis, but have used an active valve pre since 2012. In my home the SC clear
