  2. 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: Carmen Gomes inc. One Mic Recording Session 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

  5. I am not sure this should be here and for my first real post it may be a bit long but I hope to learn quickly how to use the forum. I am currently looking at different options for isolation, and am getting a bit overwhelmed with the number of options and the extent of things I don't know but have set on a journey that I believe you can also help shape and that I am laying down below. I saw that (industrial) anti vibration pads and a massive wooden or stone platform is a common recommendation here on SNA (for speakers and TT) , but I'm trying to focus on solutions with lower visual footprint for now (and a platform as a solution would also mean I need to keep the spikes under my speaker (bottom ported) which I fear would have a significant impact on the height of the tweeter) I settled on isolation and not coupling after 1) experiencing a nice improvement in clarity and timber of instruments after installing Herbie's audio decoupling gliders below my speaker spikes (WB Vector) 2) noticing (after that) that I could hear the bass through the sofa while my other ear was blocked. And this with the speakers playing at night at background noise level (55db slow c-weighted). My standard listening level are around 60dB with peak 70db. As I browsed online through the different type of isolation device, I could notice many different designs which I decided to try testing out a bit. In the back of my mind I'd love to be able after that to understand what it is best for me in my system to isolate (horizontal vibrations, vertical one or both) and I'll take any clue from you guys if you don't mind sharing. But until I get there, I have to rely on my testing in my system While admitedly my listening levels are nowhere near crazy and I should be able to leave with what I have, I am still keen to proceed in isolating my speakers: - if only to prevent any potential complaint from my neighbours. - to get some even better sound - to decrease the extent of the filtering I run in the Hqplayer convolution engine so as to regain 3 to 8db of dynamics in the system To give some context, I am using a simple system with - a mac mini running roon+hqplayer on audiolinux - matrix x-spdif 2 to convert USB to AES/EBU - soulution 330 integrated with Dac - WB Vector on spikes Positioning of the speaker is not a variable (except toe in) and listening position can be adjusted a bit Digital gear is all stuck in the TV console (a few vertical vibration resonance modes) (I haven't managed yet to understand how to insert images in-line from my phone so they may well be at the very end of the post.) So I set up to gather some relatively inexpensive isolation footers (images below) to compare different designs... on my amp (before I spend for the speakers). I have so far only focused on footers, big heavy platforms being a difficult topic to bring up with my better half and have started testing: - some ceraball type of aluminium footers (made in China, not the real ones) - stainless steel slim 3 ball bearing footer (with balls almost totally "locked" in dimples barely bigger their size. - ebony/crystal 3 ball bearing footer (here the dimple for the balls are a bit bigger than the balls and the central piece of the footer is a simple rod, giving more freedom to the 2 pieces of the footer as compared to the one above - chinese magnetic footers with ball bearing on top (similar to the above stainless steel one) Coming later for testing: - herbie audio lab tenderfeet - ingress engineering rollerblock - townshend audio isolation platform I have so far reached the best results with 4 magnetic footers under the feet of the amp but am wondering whether I am in an optimal situation: - how to determine whether they're loaded enough (they're rated up to 40 kg but the top is barely sinking into the main body and the amp is barely moving when pushed either sideways or vertically (amp weight is between 30 and 32 kg I'd say) - how to determine the center of gravity of the amp to try with only 3 footers (I can always adjust the height of these footers but guess it's best to have all of them loaded equally) - what's the lifespan of a magnetic footer (I wouldn't want one of the magnet to suddenly fail and prop the amp suddenly down) Now to how does it sound: The magnetivc footers bring a more natural tone, a little more laid back feeling with still good dynamics, a lot of smoothness yet no emphasis on bas or mid bass, a more open highs, more detail. Comparatively, in my system: - amp on the ebony footers would rate second with more warmth and a bigger soundstage - amp on the ground would rate next with a natural and neutral delivery, more detail popping than the ebony footers - the stainless steel ball bearings would follow then with a less smooth delivery than the ebony footers and an overemphasised bass/medium bass but a bit more detail. - Finaly my chinese ceraball delivers the most detail (except for the magnetic footers) but everything is metallic, soundstage is deconstructed, everything's extremely gritty, probably better with warmer or slower systems My next step will then to be to compare the magnetic footers with the newcomers before I try to assess whether I want to use the same type of footers for the speakers (with the added need to make sure it's safe in a baby friendly environment) As you can see, there's still a lot to try and the process is not necessarily the most coherent, so I'll welcome your thoughts on what I could/should try. Also as you can see my journey so far has been mostly subjective. I tried to measure the impact of each footer in term of vibrations using a vibration app on my phone, but it lacks precision and none of the footers seem to produce so far a profile different from the floor itself (main resonance maybe at 8 hz, background noise of about 0.03m/s2 on each axis) I have to make REW work on my headless Linux machine running HQP, but until then I "rely" on the seismic app on my phone (not really useful) . With that I can just tell that my TV console with all the digital gear resonates like crazy when fighter jets rush over my head (but then I can't hear the music, so not such a big deal) If anyone has experience with different types of footers, subjective or measured, I'll welcome your inputs and I'll keep you posted when new findings come up PS: my most listened to tracks right now are nursery rhymes as I am looking for various (and listenable) baby approved songs in Chinese, French and English, so testing will take a long time I fear for lack of proper available time. Good news is that I'll have that time to read your comments.

  7. Hi Guys, another newbie question. I've been after some speaker wire. i've seen people use cat5/cat6 and all that but i think i'd just stick to standard speaker wires. I'll be using the furthest speaker with about 17-18m because of how the speaker wire needs to be routed. All speakers are rated at 150W but the Front ones that are rated at 250W. the amp will be set under the TV and the only wires to be routed to the right will be the front right and the Surround right all other ones will have to be routed through the left passing from the TV through Subwoofer, front left, surround left, back left and back right (about 17m) unfortunately the house is rented and i cannot drill foor/wall/ceiling. I've read online that i would need 14 Gauge wiring for the speakers but didnt say anything about distance. was just power and ohms. Would it be ok to use 12Gauge instead of 14 gauge? would that have any implications ? or better to just stick with 14 gauge? would anyone have any suggestions on wire to buy that wouldnt be that expensive? what are the thoughts on ugly? https://www.selby.com.au/brands/ugly-cable/ugly-12-awg-speaker-cable-420-strands-ug12.html have anyone used knukonceptz ? http://www.knukonceptz.com/home-theater/speaker-wire/kord-speaker-wire/sp/kord-ultra-flex-12-gauge-speaker-wire-100/ I think i'll need in total about 70-75m of wiring so can get expensive fast. the idea is to use banana plugs for everything. i would probably use the same wire with RCA connector for the sub. current setup: Front: NHT C4 Centre: Gale 20 Back & Surround: Axis LS28 Subwoofer: Sound Dynamics THS-10 TV FL S C FR SL SR BL BR distance from amp: C(enter): 3-4m to be able to route through the tv unit S(ub): 4m FL: 5m FR: 6m SL: 10m SR: 12m BL: 14m BR: 18m

  13. Buyer to pay postage. Further information: I bought these last year, along with the IOTAVX SA3 advertised separately, with a view to writing up a review but I haven't gotten around to it and I'm not as enthusiastic anymore so it seems unlikely that I ever will and so they are up for sale. They are a quite good speaker, especially for the price, beware the postage add-on though, they certainly didn't turn out as cheap as I first thought they were. A good fit with the IOTAVX SA3 in my opinion which is why I took pics of them together. Good speakers for a bedroom or office system or as starter speakers for an audiophile on a tight budget. I have the original box so postage is not a problem, although it is too big for Austpost so a courier will have to be the go. Bought from here. https://www.china-hifi-audio.com/en/paiyon-hifi-audio-speaker-c-60/paiyon-p4-2-0-bookshelf-loudspeaker-audiophile-passive-hi-fi-audio-speakers-pair-p-2179?zenid=58c573d570720a6a3afccebce052f1e4 Photos: .
  14. Further information: Near new condition. In warranty until 2022. This is the latest HS2 version of this speaker. Big sound, it replaced my SONOS Play 5 Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.

  24. 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
