  1. Hey guys,

    Looking for some recommendations on isolation spikes, have looked on line and there seems to be a large variety of styles and types. Plan is for a new hifi rack(2 component wide) with 3 shelves. Approx weight of equipment is going to be in the 85 kg range. I will have 6 feet on the bottom(do I use spikes here?) And then 6 posts (aluminium bar) between shelves. Cheers

    If you're paying 5k for an A23 then I'd be shopping around [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  11. Rotel RB 1582 or Parasound A23

    As the owner of a Parasound P5 and A21 I'm kinda biased but bang for buck I don't think you can go wrong with Parasound, my mate had a Rotel system, pre and power and he has slowly swapped them out. I was only chatting with another member this arvo and saying that once I get another A21 I'm done with upgrades! Sent from my Lenovo YT-X703F using Tapatalk

    Hey guy's, some really good advice there which I will be sure to follow once I get the room painted up. @Darren69 I had a good read of your post that you linked the other night and when I read about you not having the full range going to your speaker I laughed as I had been thinking along the same lines, the P5 allows for mains and sub woofer crossover control and I had set up to take the load off just like you....flicked the switch off on the mains and big difference there straight away, I had the crossover set up to stop everything below 80hz going to the mains and everything below 80hz to the sub. I have a feeling that my first reflection point on the ceiling will be where my A/C duct is, that kind of thing is inevitable with me Also on the side it will be where my doorway is. I also have acoustic batts in the wall for noise reduction....doesn't do a lot but works well in conjunction with the electronics to heat up the room....was an oven with the old plasma...lol @Ooogh I agree with your comments on setting up the listening position as I'm the only one that really appreciates the sound. Cheers Guys

    Hey Ooogh, this is where my knowledge as limited as it already is, really lacks, I have no idea on how to treat a room, although there is probably a myriad of threads here on that topic....I will need to focus on this a bit more me thinks. I still have the Chord Carnival Speaker cable the I swapped out for the Kimber so I might put that back into service and see how it goes, although the Kimber does seem to be more revealing......again not so good with descriptions. I'm not that far out of the big smoke only 50k's so if there are any willing members who want to educate me I'm more than happy for that. Thanks for the insightful reply Hey Darren, same as my reply to Ooogh, I need to focus on this, I looked at the link you provided, did you make those panels? I'm currently painting thruogh my house (awesome fun job) so once I finish that I'll have time to play around a bit more. Broke, I have a very similar sized room, although I don't seem to have an issue with bass. OK so I took some pics of my room for you guys to see what I'm dealing with and don't flame me for my equipment set up, it's temporary till I finish my DIY rack and I place the P5 away from the A21 when in use. It's probably not an ideal configuration, but it's what I've got to work with.....
