  5. I need a dose of Dali Old audiophile ears talk of the original Dali demonstration disc with a huge smile on their face describing a glorious listening experience, a memorable moment at a Hifi show. Some are lucky enough to get a copy. I want that experience, I want to hear it on my system, I want my little Rega to shine. When I think of a demo disc I think of; Exploring new music, sometimes known music in new way - tick Knowing that a extraordinary effort has been made in putting together the music choices, the recording quality, the production quality - tick In addition to this a well established and respected loud speaker manufacturer have put their reputation out there again. To get a chance to have a copy, particularly on vinyl gets me excited. I need a dose of Dali Please

    Hi buddyev Does this unit have the phono stage installed? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks for the heads up bjc, bad pun intended. Do you have any acoustic treatment, or in line with this thread any specific speaker type and/or setup?
  11. Svenr Attached is my workings to show my starting point for my new room layout, its a room I am refurbing under my house. Unfortunately I have a low ceiling but my distances and reflection angles are similar to what you are talking about. Basically I started with a combination of the 1/3 rule of speaker and seating position and the cardas method for locating speakers relative to walls. The picture in the top left corner is just for reference and GIK have suggested I focus on full back full absorption rather than front wall. But again there will be trial and error before any permanent or semi permanent solutions are installed. Unfortunately the room is a project in process and will be quite some time before I get to room measurements and acoustic treatment trials. Just thought my sketch may assist in discussions, any thoughts welcome. basement speaker layout.pdf

    Can I have Stock Fisch Records - Steve Strauss - Just like Love - SACD Stock Fisch Records - Chris Jones - 2x CD
  13. Good topic Svenr, I'm in the process of doing this myself. Unfortunately from my research I'm not prepared to try anything other than green glue because I haven't come across a cheaper alternative that has been tested, it's a lot of work to install and not easy to pull down and start over. I think silicone is not viscous enough for this purpose. I did look at fire rated sealant because it has similar characteristics, ie it doesn't set hard, but again the ones rated for reasonable acoustic ratings are pretty much the same price as green glue. On the resilient clips, Studco have some that are comparable to green glue whisper clips but also similar in price. I am currently looking at embelton ceiling hangers because the whisper clips aren't really suited to ceiling mounting and in my case I need something that works on floor joists that aren't exactly level, Studco have something similar and only slightly cheaper but I think I would trust embelton over Studco in this instance. I'll be following this one for others ideas.
  14. Try Kungfu Panda the last or 2nd last DVD movie chapter where Po and the snow leopard fight and especially when Po executes the wushi finger!
  15. yes Svenr, trying to limit noise and vibration transfer between this room and the rest of the house. Of course you are correct, good advice goes a long way. Is there someone you would recommend in Melb. thanks
