  1. The geo-blocking is linked to Google platform. Qobuz can only keep their license for the files if they comply with the geo-blocking. I got around it years ago by having a friend in Ireland open a Qobuz a/c for me. I then took it over and paid the subscription. I then changed email address. Provided the a/c is opened in an approved country, the subscriber can operated anywhere on the globe. It is in Qobuz's interest to accept as many subscribers as their license will allow.
  2. Yep. Everyday I dread the uglies will return but it sounds better and better. I think the SR blue fuses have burned in.
  3. COVID-19 late night Lockdown cure: All sonic problems solved. The problem was that diffusers were set up for dipoles. I moved two diffusors from the front wall to the back wall, facing the speakers. I was stunned by the improvement. Diffusors are essential to get good sound. AVs need diffusors on the back wall because they put out so much energy in treble and midrange. The sound is now as good as I have heard.
  4. I use these cables. Experienced an epiphany when I first heard them. If you can fit 0.5m in your system they are worth it.
  5. Where did you see the $120 price? Are you selling tt belts?
  6. use the michell gyrodec belt. that's the belt the aura uses. That belt can be bought online and is cheap. https://www.lpgear.com/category/MICHELL.html
  7. You're clutching at straws. Hmm..layers of straw matts is an idea
  8. Eventually everything is burned in. Power cords and jumper cables needed 2wks. I'm happy with the sound. I was going to have a GTG this month but Audio Apocalypse meant I had to put off until it is safe. By the time of a GTG I will probably have made a few tweaks.
  9. My Sub231 is an analogue version. No digital jiggery pokerey. Crossover is at about 300hz. I run a jumper cable off the Trio. Yeah, room is big. Two storey ceilng. 8.5mts by about 15mts, open plan. Large enough to hold a 20hz tone. The REL crossover is at about 35hz. I tried it at 30hz but it felt like there was a suckout.
  10. Thanks. I did think of going to higher value fuses, maybe up to 3.5A. I'm nervous about going to 4A it seems too large a jump. You did question what I heard when I improved the sound by changing the jumper cables. "If your ears are cringing - I would say it is not the jumper cables. More likely to be equipment partnering." Improving sound by changing jumper cables is a lot cheaper than changing components. I did audition an expensive silver/copper jumper cable. It was way better than the AV cable, but I preferred the cheaper all copper cable I also auditioned. The coppe
  11. I had 3 circuits done 20yrs ago as recommended by Mike Kontor. But foolishly I did one 20A circuit with only 2 sockets. I should have made all 20A because I ran out of 20A sockets for my set up. I had a sparky come round and he had to run a separate electrical conduit for a second 20A circuit. I've never had any ground loop problems. I think if you like the sound of your system/room leave it. A consultant from a top retailer heard my room and thought it was the best room he had heard in all his years of installing gear. He suggested i should leave it as is. I do use RoomTunes to good
  12. I think you are reading more into my post than what I said. I said the sound is beautiful but still needs more burning in. My room and system ain't set up pretty, but it is set up good, with 4 dedicated circuits.
  13. Bill Mclean measured my room when he set up the MG20.7. The room measured close enough to flat. Nothing wrong with the room. The system sounds beautiful. Yeah, I've heard the speakers with silver jumper cables, I preferred the cheaper copper model. I also preferred the cheaper pwr cords on the woofers. More money does not always get you better sound.
  14. sub 231s set up. They are set up as woofers. I'll be keeping the REL 212s.. Switching the RELs off results in the arse dropping out of the sound. I've already blown three 3.15A IEC fuses. I suspect that low rating fuse is to protect the inner fuses. I'm reluctant to put on custom fuses until I've settled it all down. The sound gets more beautiful everyday. Still needs more burning in. Custom pwr cords and speaker jumper cables are essential. The Trio is too high res to use Jaycar cords. The factory jumper cables made my ears cringe. I learned a lot about co
  15. Thanks. They've just increased the price in their webpage to $808 for 3ft. It is $955 for 5ft. I stand corrected, your box does display a 5ft length in the fine print. I might just be interested in this, if I survive the apocalypse.
