    Has anyone tried Edward's subwoofers in a 2.1 system? I have currently got a Topping D90 dac attached via xlr to a topping a90 headphone amp/pre amp attached via xlr to a March Audio Hypex P252 amp with speaker cables going out to the M853SQs.

     

    How would I integrate a sub in there? Does anyone know?

    Hi there. Just for interest as this is an old post but I have just set up two of Edwards 10" subs in my home theater and they are fantastic. Very musical and go down to about 24hz. Brillant on home theatre and two channel. You would be able to connect to the high level speaker terminals on the sub amp if you don't have a pre out on your amp.

    I did get in touch with Edward and he suggested the 8883SQTL Timberwolf or the 863SQTL summoner for me paired with the 253SQ centre speaker. 

     

    Does anyone have experience with these specifically and can you recommend? 

    I have basically this same front end with the summoners and the centre is customised to suit the spot it lives in. I also have just aquired 2 of his 10" subs and also have another pair of custom built ones just for two channel. Highly recommend them. Happy for you to come and have a listen. I'm on the Mornington Peninsula. Pm me if you are keen.

  3. Cheers mate. I'll get it sorted one way or another. I was given this record about 34 years ago by my sisters ex boyfriend at the time and it was warped then from him leaving it in a car. He bought it new so it has seen very little play time and is near mint other than the warp so it would be nice to get it 100% playable. If I do I'll post it on the vinyl now playing page. 🤘

  4. A question regarding the results. Does it impact on the sound quality or playability once flattened. I have heard mixed reports that it damages the grooves. I'd be happy just to get it flat enough to play the first track on each side as it plays beautifully if I cue to the second track which is essentially past the warp. It's a blue label Highway to Hell and by all accounts is worth a few bucks. Also if anyone knows of someone on the Mornington Peninsula side of town that would be a bonus. Long way to the other side.😁

    Thanks Matt.

  5. Hi all, Just wondering if anyone in Vic has a record flattening machine. I have a 1st pressing of Highway to Hell that is VG++  Sleeve and the record would be near mint other than an edge warp which makes track 1 on both sides unplayable. If I start from the second track in it plays absolutely perfect with no background noise at all. Would love to be able to get most of the warp out if possible. I have tried in the past by putting heavy weights on it but no joy I'm afraid. Happy to pay for the service, thanks in advance.

  6. Hi all, this is my very humble Rega P25 which has had some major tweaking over the last 4 years that I've owned it. Bought it stock standard and have since done various tweeks. It's a very sweet sounding table. Tweaks as follows :- Incognito silver cardas rewire, Rega 24v motor with PSU upgrade, Tango Spinner adjustable feet, brass dual pulley, silicon belts, Delrin/Aluminium platter, VLT bearing housing, Subplatter, record clamp. Groove Tracer under slung counter weight. Have run Rega Exact, Ortofon 2M Red, 2M Black and currently DV 17DX. Really love what the DV brings out of the grooves. Big shout out to Gus from Tango Spinner as well. The nicest guy to deal with. My last additions were the platter, bearing housing and pulley, belts and clamp. Sent from Argentina on the 20th Jan and arrived at the door today. Would have been yesterday if not for the public holiday. Great service.

    So I've already swapped over cables from another speaker from amp to wall and from wall to speaker and still hums. But that gives me an idea, I might try swapping RL and RR speakers. If still there, I'll plug speaker directly in to amp and try each it on both rear channels, bypassing the in wall cables.

    Process of elimination mate. Sounds like you're onto it though. Those hums are quite annoying and once you know it's there, it's like a scab. Good luck on your quest.

    Hi all, I have enjoyed Ascension speakers for just over 10 years now running them with a Marantz SR7002 AV receiver.

    The receiver is now stopped working! Just curious what brand of amp/receiver you guys are running your speakers with for an idea of the kind of sound you are achieving!

    I like a detailed and warm sound, which I achieved with my combo of Marantz and Ascension.

    Edward created passive Monitor type speakers (flat response) for me - running LR and centre at this stage.

    I run all tube gear with my 1293's and they sound amazing. Preamp is a bat 30vk into a rogue audio amp modified by Dallas Clarke and using kt120 output tubes for about 100w/channel.  Very nice sound. I play mostly vinyl but also a bit of streaming and silver discs.

    Hi everyone, currently own a pair of 8" 3 way Ascension floor standers Model 863 PSRTL which I'm very happy with but need to scratch an itch and want to upgrade to the equivalent 12" version. Has anyone out there already been down this path, if so was it worth the $'s and effort ? Using a SVS 10" PB sub in conjunction with them but think the bigger drivers would give a more complete sound overall, thoughts please

    Hi, I have a pair of 863's and also custom 1293's. They are in separate rooms and the 863's are mostly for home theatre along with a custom centre from Edward. The 1293 are two channel in a large room 5.5m x 12m roughly and sound amazing. I've never found a need to turn on my sub with these. You will definitely get more bass from the bigger woofer but it's also going to be relative to your room. I am more than happy with the bass from the 863 in the ht setup but it's also a smaller room and i run two subs for movies but normal tv viewing the subs don't come on. I have the fronts set to large so they do most of the bass duties. Hope that answers part of your question. Good luck with whichever way you roll.
