Sure they do!

Well that was my conclusion after having both at the same time.I believe the NS75T sounds more like the NS 5000 than the NS1000Ms.Not everybody might consider that better I suppose but to me the NS5000s are a realization of the potential of the NS 1000s [and I think probably the best speakers I have heard] ,and the NS75Ts fall somewhere between the two.

More likely they just sound better in YOUR room to your ears. 

As for the 5000's, I wax impressed when I heard them but wouldn't swap my Ref 1's for them.

Oops wrong photo above, but that is where it all started ;-)

 

I have since done a bit of DIY on the cheap and came up with these stands for the time being until I get something proper done for them in the future:

Finished stand above, excuse the horrible phone picture.

 

Is the corner mirror there so you can admire the speakers from more than one angle or some kind of reflective bass triangulator.

I had the mirror there momentarily for no obvious reason. Just a coincidence really :-)

^They look stunning.! 

Did you make them yourself? Is that a wood veneer finish applied or some exotic solid timber?

Just need to stain and varnish them. About 38cm height for my DIY ported 67L Ns1000 cabinets.

I had them made by a friend who is a hobbyist woodworker. 

They’re solid Tasmanian Oak. No veneer here. 

Definitely a great design for these speakers. Helped in the bass department and also helped control soundstage and centre imaging.

The round edges are cool. What colour/stain are you planning to use  to finish them?

@Al.M regarding the ported cabinets design. How did you determine the appropriate cabinet size/volume and port design to achieve the desired frequency response?

I will stain it to match the side cheeks.

 

My previous post on the vented design NS1000 and another guy in UK who documented and did the same. Big difference.

Those already look great as they are, you must be a perfectionist :-)
Please keep us posted on any developments.
And my hunt for the NS-1000M continues.
Finishing job started on my favourite yamaha speaker stands.

They’re decent looking stands Dave. 

Have you thought about putting a rug or some carpet on the floor in front of them? You will be rewarded!

      Item: Yamaha NS-1000m speakers 
      Location: Adelaide SA
      Price: $OLD
      Item Condition: Excellent for age
      Reason for selling: Looking to consolidate.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Gift or +3%, EFT
      Extra Info:
      Bought this pair last year to compare with my NS-1000 Ebony version, very similar sounding. I'd love to keep both but wife is on my case to downsize 
      This is a matching pair with original crossovers but no front grills, serial no above 80K. All edges and corners are straight, there are a few minor marks here and there but these do not detract from its overall appearance as can be seen from the pictures.
      Pick up preferred and will demo for local buyer. Also have a Yamaha CR-840 receiver FS which would go very well with this pair. 
      Happy to answer questions via PM.
      Can include Ikea stools if buyer so desire 😉

      After many months if not years searching, I finally have the opportunity to have these coveted speakers under the one roof, so I thought it would be a good idea for a video comparison having them playing side by side, utilising the same source and same music.
      For the comparison I used my trusty old Yamaha CR-1020 receiver as it allows me to connect 3 different pairs at the same time and be able to switch on the fly throughout the song, so please excuse the rudimentary technique.
      Also used a Rode VideoMic Me to capture the sound as best as I could, unfortunately it does show in the frame due to the camera and audio jack position.
       
      I'm not the best at describing what each speaker sounds like and the differences so I'll let the video do the talk, but I would love to hear your thoughts and any opinions about the comparison/setup.
       
      Cheers,
      Willmax
       
       
      Take two:
      I've moved the NS-1000M next to the NS-1000 (ebony) to be able to compare them side by side, the NS-690 was put in front with the stand a little higher (the CR-1020 receiver cannot be seen as it is behind the speaker). Hope this will allow for better comparison particularly between the two NS-1000 versions.
      For the purpose of this video all High/Mid Level adjustments for all speakers were left as Normal (12 o'clock).
      Please see video below:
