one addition to the system - plenty of time to enjoy during lockdown.      

My current system!         Recorded handheld on my iphone with inbuilt microphone...so take it with a big dose of salt.

There was also an image of the rear, inside. Looks very ordinary. Still they may have an intreging sound. Horn and woofer. Probably highly efficient.

Thanks.

The panels are a necessity because without them, the image is dragged to the right speaker. There's a strong null to the left where there's a floor-ceiling glass window.

I'm liking the simplicity of that system. I've been wondering if I should go back to 2 channel only with my full Cyrus system. Currently I'm using 8-9 boxes for a 7.0 system. Going two channel will see me halving that number.

 

How do you find things as they're shown?

I went from 8 speakers to two for movie watching. Never looked back. Still get the feeling of objects and people etc behind and around.

Yep both the outriggers and speakers.

They are like the shelves on their racks but heavier duty, Stuart pretty much machined them extra large to hold the speakers.

😆, luckily they were already on spikes so no water issues.

I would be very interested to know broad specs and rough price @joz

 

The only interesting part is the Speakon on top of the cabinet.

I’ve just had all my  sub drivers replaced and upspecced due to a wee accident..

Also had the outriggers added.

Those boxes are the bottom subsections of my towers.

the speakon is to connect to the box above.

As for specs and costs better to speak to @SGR Audio

Same setup as before, but moved the speakers and furniture around a bit.

 

Speakers are Meridian DSP5000, Sources - Auralic Aries Femto (Streaming, USB music), Linn Axis TT, Woo Audio CDT, NAD 4020A Tuner

Sorry for the blurry pic but this was a pretty cool experiment.
I hired some JBL PRX825W powered PA speakers to see how dual 15inch drivers and a compression driver/horn would go in my space.

 

It was surprising how good it sounded at low levels though there was a fair bit of audible hiss at a bit over 3m.

 

I did a quick measurement on REW and the same as my main speakers there was a big dip around 60hz on the right speaker and the only way with the JBLs to smooth that out was to sit about 2-2.5m from the speaker which isn't ideal for the space.

 

Anyways was a heap of fun, pretty cheap and I would encourage others to try hiring similar if so inclined.

Hiss, possibly Class Damps and high efficiency speakers. If up on stage or whatever you would be too far back to hear the hiss. Not in a smaller room though.

Yeah class D and definitely different purposes. Not an issue in their intended use and while listening to music I couldn't hear it either.

Abit of a mix at the moment.

Mainly using sonus faber's but still love listening to rock through the ns10m's. Only thing I have heard better for rock is the gale 401 series.. still yet to buy a pair. 

The sonus faber's are very smooth. I'm using a yamaha p2200 power amp from the late 70s.

A bit confronting but still would love to hear it. My gut says you have the right mix here. Big grungy tubers powering current hungry speakers. Just how I see it.

Yes, very! Have you noticed how disorderly that stack of CDs looks? They don’t even appear to be alphabetised. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

It appears Tidal doesn’t have that album. Others of his not that one though?
