  1. One box solutions could suit you, like Naim mu-so. If you want separate speakers then Kef LS50 wireless ii would be good but $ is a factor. But there is so much you don't tell us, it's hard to give advice. What music do you play? How loud? Are you a details person or do you like a bit of tone too? Do listen intently or ambient? What is your music room like in dimensions and surfaces?
  2. Still looking? I have a SVS SB1000 BLACK 10 months old $850 + shipping from Sydney.
  3. Further information: truly excellent sub, paired well with my bookshelf speakers for amazing 2.1 setup. 10 months use.

  5. There I s no need to spend a lot. My DAC was $180 and sounds beautiful. Check my signature.
  6. I'm happy with my inexpensive DAC between my Node 2 and my tube amp feeding my speakers. A $180 bargain. To get me to spend more will require significant improvement in SQ. Except my SQ now is very good, so I'm not motivated. My library is on a HDD via USB into the Node. No format drama, nothing negative at all. Spotify you access via the Spotify app and also Tidal the same. Bluos for playing files. I was happy with no external DAC for a long time. Only bought the one I have as an experiment. Immediately sold all others this is so good. I am a firm believe
  7. And this post belongs in the classifieds in wanted to buy.
  8. Having just secured a pair of 926's I recommend these as excellent value at this price. They can play quiet too, so do not be afraid of size. At 4 m away they will be divine.
  9. I have one, and can attest to good quality sound, excellent first DAC.
  10. @andyr, I don't use spikes. Any alternating multilayer will do. That is why the IKEA boards are popular. I've got cardboard under my chopping board under my Weston amp. That probably says it all.
  11. Sorry Andy, but you are not correct here. First of all if you are doing some maths you do that of sound waves in materials and consider how they transmit, reflect and refract. Your pressure calculation has little relevance. Acoustic reflection coefficients are governed by Acoustic Impedance, which is governed by material density and the speed of sound in that material. A non penetrative spike will isolate sound by trapping reflections in the internal volume of the spike. A penetrative spike will allow transmission of some degree, and will couple to the same degree.
  12. The simpler the question, the more profound the consequences of asking. e.g. What is? That question required the invention of science. So I am not surprised at all, in fact I expect it if the question is a good one. All good questions give rise to even better ones. Not answers but pathways that ignore the things we show to be wrong. Yes I'd like to know how a ss device with no moving parts is affected by vibration, as I can speculate on some effects, but others may have more credible knowledge. I'm out of practice with my PDE's. But
  13. Your price is already a bargain. I paid $2200 for my Tempest and feel like I won lotto, it's so good, especially with new GL kt88 tubes on board. GLWTS
