  1. I did find mine a little on the sharp side when using solid state setup, but then changed to an Aune T1 (DAC, tube preamp with golden lion, SS amp - all in one) and it smoothed the sound out.

    Now running SMSL Sanskritt 6th edition with a darkvoice and have no issues with that treble spike.

     

    I have no regrets purchasing these headphones.

    Onto the 4th year now and replaced earpads/headband and new lighter cables and they feel brand new!

     

    everyone has different head shapes/sizes, would recommend testing these. Headphones are such as subjective item..

    mine fit perfectly and I dont even notice them after 10 minutes of wearing. (usually wear them for hours)

     

    Would highly recommend these!

  3. Im running a very similar system.

     

    although instead of apple tv or airport express, im using a HTPC.

    you could do the same or even use a laptop. - using win 7 /media center

     

    IMHO you can do a lot more on a PC and play a wide range of formats.

    I currently have my itunes library stored on another PC connected to the network.

     

    HTPC reads this and can play any of the songs (apple sharing turned on) through my main system.

    to add to that, I also run VLC player to play all other file formats.

     

    I use my iphone and ipad as remotes controls, both loaded with VLC remote to control whats playing, and the Apple App 'remote' which allows me to control itunes.

     

    to top of it, running a internal BD drive on the PC and HDMI out to my amp.

    you can always use a higher end sound card if you are wanting analogue outputs from the PC

     

    Using the TV is a big computer screen.

     

    if you arent PC savvy, then apple TV and other devices might be a better option

  4. upon testing my proac clones I noticed I get a tonne of bass from them when I stand in the rear corner(s) of the room.

     

    however when I sit on the couch directly in front of them, I noticed the bass disappears~ if I sit on the side couch I then get a nice full range sound. this is about 2 metres away from them

     

    can anyway care to explain why this is happening?

    I've since moved house since my last setup and I never had this problem.

     

    tested my other diy scans and I get nice amounts of bass where ever I sit in the room~

     

    If I put the clones into the corners of the room (front corners) I then get much better bass from them?

     

    I assume something is up with the room acoustics, but not sure how to go about correcting it as i cant really leave the speakers in the front corners of them room :D

     

    long post~

     

    forgot to mention, the room is square, windows at the back of the room, only in one corner.

    has a dome in the ceiling

    the front where the TV is, use to be a fireplace but is now covered up, one side is recessed though

     

    will try to attach an image of the room if people need it

  6. Now fixed these, terminals seem to be nice and tight, tested and now working!

    used hot glue to help secure them in place

    I also have a spare Revelator driver 7" sitting around, and noticed scanspeak have changed their speaker terminals around since the classic series

     

     

    I cant seem to upload anymore attachments on next post?

  7. as some of you may know, im selling my proac clones in the sale thread and now on trademe.

     

    I've advertised them with a few issues, and one of them being that the speaker terminals have snapped off on the mids.

     

    I came across this when removing the drivers a while back and noticed the terminals had just snapped off :(

     

     

    anyway, decided to buy a little sheet of copper today from hobby city, and cut some new terminals up!

     

    pics below (snapped terminals)

  8. cheers for the comments

    yes they sound awesome :D

     

    I need to pull the drivers out again, so I might end trying to seal them inside too.

    Also the tweeters are not quite sitting flush, so will try* to sand around the edges (not sure how im going to do this without scratching the paint )

     

    Im that in love with the scanspeak sound I also have revelators in my car

     

    12m and illuminator tweeter shown :D

  9. Now finished! got the painted at Sprayman in carr road, mt roskill

     

    only paid $100 + GST

    my only gripe is that they havent painted inside the ports

     

     

    although I may have to remove the speakers and some how free up a little space around as the speakers are jammed in!

    the finish is pretty good, marks easy and finger prints show extremely badly

  10. if I got one of these CDs, I would most liklely rip it into PC format~

    Im also interested in the Gold discs they have on these sites, whether they are a marketing ploy? or actually a lot better?

     

    HDCD, another one! this is getting confusing :D

    might look into those
