  1. Best music for speaker placement and best speaker placement tutorial??? Having acquired a pair of Harbeth P3ESR speakers I'm having fun looking for the ultimate speaker placement. I have downloaded The Visual Sound the Sound Liaison DXD Music Sampler as it was recommended to me as being a great speaker placement tool. (Using the coupon code “XFI2019” you can download the 352DXD for $16 or the 24/ 96 files for $8.) Especially the phase coherent One Microphone recordings on the sampler seems excellent for that purpose: https://www.soundliaison.com/index.php/536-sound-liaison-dxd-music-sampler On the net i.e. youtube, there are a great number of tutorials in speaker placement. Any of these you would especially recommend? https://www.harbeth.co.uk/speakers/userguide.php
  2. Further information: I bought these from an Audio Shop in Caxton St. They are approx. 2m in length. I can't tell what they are but from memory, I bought pair of blue Heaven and a pair of Solar wind but sold one pair locally last year and kept this pair. Although the cables are identical but one has a blue line at the edge and the other one is clear. Perhaps someone here who is familiar with Nordost cables and can help identify with further info. Apart from that, one terminal has recently broke off but can be re-connected if you are a bit handy. Cables have a few creases but no major bend or breakages ( apart from what mentioned above). A arrow direction has been marked on both cable as per photo. Cable is silver in colour and no oxidisation whatsoever Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. Further information: Purchased brand new from FHRX Studios. RRP is $608 for the set. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  4. Hi All I was wondering if passive bi amp is going to help this situation. My current amp is audio space reference 3.1 300b producing 21w rms. Still looking for a set of speaker at the moment to replace the focal chorus 705 but with the current offers out there will I be benefit and widen my speaker choices from passive bi amping? Reason for this been I came across a pair of audio space 300b mono block which is also 21w rms at a very good price. Cheers Jimmy
  5. TLDR; it is just OK, nothing more. TL; I’ve been on the lookout for a replacement center speaker since replacing my fronts, which have a much warmer timbre. This may seem like a relatively straight forward endeavour, buy from the same series, however I had a number of constraints. 1.- It couldn’t be more than 56cm wide. 2.- It had to have a wide soundstage, as it’s for the 120” screen. 3.- It had to be warm and not rear ported, to fit in the cabinet. Previously I had been using for over a decade a pair of AudioEngine P4’s, connected in series and laid on their sides, which surprised me how well my experiment actually worked. They had a wide soundstage convincing voice reproduction, and generally superior audio to a lot of other centers I tried. I finally stumbled on the Theia by Earthquake Sound, (https://earthquakesound.com/index.php/en/component/zoo/item/theia). There are no professional reviews, nothing in forums w/ the sole references from three amazon reviews. I liked the design concept, they looked fairly good quality and Earthquake Sound’s other Titan speakers got positive feedback, and I guess they're reassuringly expensive. I emailed the manufacturer, to ask about enclosed placement and actual measurements bcos they claim 49cm everywhere, but the manual also states 62cm… I received no reply, but the 10” passive radiator curiosity convinced me to part w/ my $. It arrived in a couple of days and sure enough the long side was 62cm and the narrow 49cm, which required my jigsaw to leave the speaker in situ. Fit and finish: Poor, cheap Chinese manufacturing. The front grill broke while trying to remove it, the black lacquered finish has rotary buffing marks and it looks like putty has been used between the front mdf panels. Sound: They measure ~OK, but I’m hearing lows and high mids more than anything, the range of the 4” Kevlar cones + Piston-Max isn’t as great as I’ve come to expect. I guess you could argue that’s a product of a 2 way speaker. I could counter that the 10” could be classified as a pseudo woofer… but I’d be wrong. Some info on the SLAPS: http://www.earthquakesound.eu/car-audio/slaps-passive-radiators/slaps-10.aspx Soundstage: This is my biggest gripe, horizontally quite wide, but vertically narrow, so now the center is very localized and much lower than the source image. I’ve angled the speaker to point directly at me, but still sounds like it’s coming from below the image. Score: 5/10, they sound marginally better than the P4’s, but cost 4x. Measurements from 3 places front (green) /centre (black) /rear (pink) of listening position. Given they’re 3.2m~4.4m from the speaker, my room has a large influence.

  11. Hi I have a problem that I am not sure I can fix. I have in-ceiling speakers that are very difficult to get to. When I had them connected initially, the company that installed them used speaker wire where the negative and positive wires look exactly the same as the outer sheath is the same. I recently purchased a new receiver and when I disconnected it I dropped the cables accidentally and now I do not know which is positive and which is negative. The grills on the speakers do not come off so I cannot see which way the cones are moving. I have watched YouTube videos on it but no one explains if / how you can check phase if you cannot see the speaker end of the connections. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

  13. I've been looking at ways to best clean/protect the piano gloss finish on my C1 Signatures as I'd like to keep them scratch free and glossy for many years to come. They are finished in a wood veneer with high gloss lacquer. After reading through many online posts, I'm getting mixed feedback on this topic. Some have recommended Turtle Wax Ice Liquid or Meguiars Next Tech, some furniture polish and others have suggested not using any products at all. I did ask a piano vendor and they just suggested furniture polish, however I'm reluctant to use abrasive polishes as this will wear down the lacquer over time. Does anyone here have any experience with this?

  25. Item: PMC Twenty.23 Location: Sydney Price: $ 2400 + shipping costs if not picked up Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Want speakers that are easier to move around Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, PayPal (+$50) Extra Info: These speakers have a fairly neutral balance, and excel at projecting a large sound stage. The high gloss black looks elegant in any room. They have a stronger and deeper bass than suggested by the small woofer, and this is achieved by the well tuned transmission lines. Rhythm is good with a fast bass. The two drivers integrate very well. They are not quite as forward and exciting sounding as the Twenty.22, and are more laid back compared. However they are not laid back compared to the average speaker. Specifications: 87dB sensitivity 29Hz - 25kHz 8 ohm impedance Link to PMC site: https://pmc-speakers.com/products/archive/archive/twenty23 What Hi-Fi review: https://www.whathifi.com/pmc/twenty-23/review Hi-Fi Choice review: https://www.hifichoicemag.com/content/pmc-twenty23-£2095 The one speaker has a faint line imprint on top (not a scratch), which you might see in the picture of the top.
