    Amazing Cheap Desktop Speaker | Build Video

    Good work, nice result, liked the music as well. Noticed though that there are a couple of times in the movie your fingers seem to have been very close to that spinning blade, TAKE CARE, don't want any fingers damaged or missing.

    Caught the villain who was dirtying the passenger side rear mirror.
  3. A set of simple DIY spikes would be a cheap method to make some comparisons?

    Perhaps you should get the two test tracks I use, StereoPhile Test CD2 tracks one and two, or others, to test these things? They are very simple tests One tests the channels are correct, left, right, not phase. Second tests the phase of signal on the two channels that are correctly connected from the previous test. The second test will sound very much like the channels being reversed if the phase is incorrect. There are test tracks for surround systems, but as I am away from home I cannot help too much with what they are. Just had a quick search and there are some on Discogs such as this URL https://www.discogs.com/Various-Audio-System-Test/release/7776497

    Yes is does, very good indeed. As I reckon most of us that have done it, me included, know how easy it is to do and also how easily it is fixed.

    OH NO! Is there is another opportunity for problems? 🙄 NO, track one will solve that. Hope it all goes well tomorrow, really.

    No worries. Nothing like having the channels reversed to make a system sound thin.

    I think I will leave that information to @Darren69 to reveal.

    What to say about @Darren69 's new setup? Looked fabulous, but it sounded rather thin and there seemed to me there was something not quite right, promising but no cigar, yet. After one simple test track the issue was found and quickly remedied. After the fault was remedied, a completely different system, really, really good sound, with lots of everything. Not sure there is much more to do really apart from settling back with a cool beverage of choice for an extended listen. Maybe look at the sub integration with a mic and REW? Thanks @Darren69 for having us to stay with you both and your wonderful hospitality, as well as the listening experience. If anyone is passing through Grafton do yourself a favour and ask if you might be able to have a listen.

  11. You might look at https://www.altronics.com.au/p/k5165-ultra-low-distortion-mk.3-135w-stereo-amplifier-kit/ as well as it has all parts, unlike your link. If you have the other parts needed for the complete amplifier then your linked kit would work well.
  12. Not too sure what you had, is it similar to this? Think that you may need Columns UI to do it, https://www.foobar2000.org/components/view/foo_ui_columns This is not a part of the standard Foobar installation.

  14. Yep, left over from a server room, does service with the computers at home as well. Nothing like a little overkill!
