  1. Cool looking box. I've just ordered a NUC and accessories (I need i7) and am planning to order a passive case in case the fan annoys me. Would you mind telling me what brand this one is? GLWTS. Cheers, Pim EDIT: Found it.
  2. Open your CD player and clean the lens with a bit of Windex on a cotton swab or cotton rag. Job done.
  3. I do the same. I have two small felt pen dots on the timber floor for the corners of the speaker's feet so I get them in the exact same spot very time. The dot's are so small, not even my wife noticed.
  4. Further information: There is a pair of LS50 Meta's up for sale here and i own a Devialet amp. For a while i've been thinking of going passive with the Devialet amp so if I can sell these, I'll buy the LS50 Meta's. In 2017 I lost some speakers in a flood and because I was insured, the insurance company bought me these. They're not my main speakers so I hardly use them. They wouldn't have more that a few hundred hours on them. I don't have the boxes anymore but I have plenty of ply wood lying around and can build a crate for safe transport. Photos: P
  5. Yep. There's only one rules in audio set up that's a proper rule and that is that all 'rules' are just guidelines.
  6. For those on the Gold Coast or Northern NSW, Geoff from Toma HIFI in Tweed Heads had some Ascension speakers specially designed for him. He's had them for a while but he recently replaced the crossovers in them. They now sound very, very good. We listened on a 10Watt Sparkle amp and it drove them with ease, as that was part of the design brief. I haven't heard that level of detail from any speaker under ten grand and these are about half that. Worth a listen.
  7. I don't know whether all these tips can be implemented but this is what I would be looking to do. Keep in mind it's easy to move the speakers back to the wall when you're not listening with some sliders underneath. Move the speakers out in front of the rack and a lot closer to each other. The rack causes reflections that stuff up your sound stage, the speakers closer to each other will make them sound warmer. Moving the rack to the side is even better. Move the couch further back so your listening position is further away then the distance between speakers. If that's not possi
  8. Want to try active?
  9. Too many knobs. Audio should be like a woman; two is enough.

  11. Yep. https://trimira.com.au/collections/fyne-audio-1/products/f502-floorstanding-speaker I own Dynaudio speakers myself and I would trade them for these, they are that good.
