  1. Very weird... It's been two years since the R3's release, yet no bracket for them to attach to the performance stands, and the S2s don't work either (contrary to media reports at the time)
  2. Can anyone confirm whether Kef's S2 stands have screwholes that go with the R3? Kef is very vague

  4. I doubt any person distinguish any reasonably-designed DAC (let's say >$200 AUD) from another in a blind test. And if a person claims he can, let him prove it under blinded conditions. Otherwise, it is merely marketing doing its work on the gullible If you want to stimulate a more "analogue sound" (which I take to mean the sound of vinyl) you could use digital processing to add in pops and clicks, lessen the channel separation, increase noise, create harmonic distortion, etc. Would be easy to implement it and you could adjust to heart's desire

  9. @Ritero https://www.facebook.com/groups/261453227521490 Re. Sonus Faber In this FB group someone was also selling a pair of Sonus Faber Venere 2.5s (the previous model to the Sonettos). Unfortunately I can't seem to make it link directly, so you have to scroll down. They looked to be in good condition
  10. Yes. From a psychoacoustics POV, soundbars have the potential to be great. In real life the implementation has been poor, as soundbars have been marketed to the less-audio conscious crowd, thus there's not been a great emphasis on quality (and so hifi lovers become ever more entrenched against soundbars). Sennheiser is leading the way with their new Ambeo. Probably is the future of home theatre Some notes on the image above, from Toole's book: "Two-channel stereo does not fare well (a), and neither does the “quad” arrangement (f), which performed very similarly, strongly co
  11. @Ritero These would be really excellent rear speakers
  12. "Results of subjective comparisons in which listeners judged the degree of impairment in perceived envelopment (LEV) when an array of a smaller number of loudspeakers attempted to imitate the performance of a circular array of 24 loudspeakers. Adapted from the data in Hiyama et al., 2002." Edit: I would be looking into the Revel M16 for the fronts ($1700/pair) and Revel C25 ($1200) for the centre, and Polk S10 for the back ($350/pair). This leaves $750 for a subwoofer and AVR (if you had $4K to spend). This would be a really nice system. Alternately, if you want to spend le
  13. If my room was big enough I would be spending the $3K on surround. It does make a difference especially with music recorded for the format (for instance some of Bis' classical recordings). Read Floyd Toole's book--he is a huge advocate. Sadly I don't have enough space so am sticking with bookshelves
