  1. I have a love/hate relationship with mine. I love it because it is so comfortable but I hate it because when I get some me time to listen to music, I always nod off through the middle 5 tracks of a CD. Not sure whether that is the chair comfort or my old age. 😀 GLWTS. Great product. Regards Cazzesman
  2. I have been using AO for the past 5 years. I run a dedicated headless music pc. I have just moved from WS 2012 (core mode) to WS2016 (GUI mode) using AO 3.0 and Fidelizer 8.4. I have run the PC into assorted DAC’s without a problem. I have zero other experience to compare AO with but I have found the AO service and documentation hard to fault. It does come with a learning curve so if you are not IT savvy maybe give it a miss. AO does what it says it will do, which is improves PC SQ on a dedicated music system. Regards Cazzesman
  3. I go this reply from Baconbrain over on the AudiophileStyle Forum - Kii 3 Thread where I posted the same question. Thought it worth posting here..... After listening to the system with my previously mentioned setting (80 Hz crossover, Butterworth Filter, etc.) for a few weeks, I decided to loop back with Kii Audio and ask them as to their recommendations regarding settings, etc. Here their response: “I would definitely stay way below 50Hz with the x-over to the sub, if I had to start I would start at around 30Hz and below. That´s where the Kii THREE has it´s -3dB roll off point, so you could slowly start to fiill the spectrum below that. If you want extra SPL from the system, you can gradually turn down the Boundary control to -12(dB). If you do, you want the sub to come in below 50Hz roughly. In any case, if you measure the room response of the Kii THREE only (with your Boundary setting of choice), the Trinnov measurement should give you a proper indication where the power response drops off and try to fill that with the sub. Don´t forget to roughly time align sub and Kiis. I would also experiment with using the front wall as a boundary layer for the subwoofer! The benefit being that you can eq the sub response to put out less energy (roughly -6dB) and the subwoofers time aligned (to the Kiis) wave front will also be cardioid of course.” Given that my boundary setting are currently set at -12 with the corner placement of the Kii’s, I decided to change the active crossover settings to 50 Hz and utilize 8th order Linkwitz-Riley LP and HP Filters. This resulted in a much more distinct bass with a perceived positive influence to the SPL. If any of you are considering a 2.1 constellation with the Kii’s, I can only recommend that you give it a try. It is definitely my preference setup and adds another dimension to an already excellent set of speakers. Regards Cazzesman
  4. Talented Russian folk. Jazz fusion. Regards Cazzesman
  5. Yes I am presuming sealed JL, Rel or SVS would be required. A Rel 1508 got some terrific reviews for speed recently but around $2700. I found a website forum where a gent had 2 DIY subs alongside kii 3’s and he crossed over at 200htz. He said they were designed for bass and not as subs. Regards Cazzesman
  6. Thanks Ray. extremely jealous right about now. Now the Kii’s have the high and low pass filters in the dsp, has anyone tried adding a quality sub or 2 into the mix. I was wondering what a sub would do in freeing up the Kii’s where a crossover was set 60-80. It appears as if Ray has started to answer that question. Ray do you know where the Kii 3 version of a crossover kicks in between the 2 units? Does it sound as if the addition of the bxt has freed up and opened up the mid range more? It is not that the kii’s don’t go low enough as i get 20htz easily in my room, but I was just wondering about the advantages , if any, of taking some of the pressure off them. Any thoughts Ray and/or others. I like the look of the SVS SB3000 with the new SVS App to tune it. Regards Cazzesman
  7. doesn't get much purer than this. Regards Cazzesman
  8. Always do wonderful stuff these guys. Regards Cazzesman
  9. Sorry but that price is embarrassing. I am sure there are many posters on SNA who could build something similar for a 10th of the price. $45,000 Aust for an audio PC is taking the P155. Regards Cazzesman
  10. Now that's some fine Rock n Roll right there folks. Regards Cazzesman
  11. What I love about the Kii 3's is the coherency they give to the music. Nomatter how cluttered a tune gets they just make it so understandable. I was smashing out Porcupine Tree - Deadwing - Arriving Somewhere but not Here. In the middle stanza, where it goes hell for leather, the driving bass line from Edwin and the Harrison drumming are so clear and clean with the Kii's. Love them to bits. Regards Cazzesman
  12. Come on Ray, what's the verdict??????? We are all living gratuitously through you and your new BXT's. 🥰 Regards Cazzesman
