hmm. Did you just log in to moode.local on your tv’s web browser? I’d never thought of doing that. Or is it something else?

 

i had a desultory play with getting HDMI out of my pi for the GUI at one point but gave up without trying too hard

Hisense latest model 65” inch 4K. Just brought up its browser and put in the local IP address for Moode as leased but the router. I’m on a Telstra router for me the IP was 10.0.0.112. Put that in and Moode popped Up. The remote allows me to control Moode. A bit clunky but workable.

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

solace away from the girls  

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

An update to one of my systems today.  Replaced Wharfedale Diamond 121s with JBL 4312M speakers.   I have set them up connected by MIT speaker wires to the Rega Brio-R integrated amplifier. It’s too early for anything definitive but here are my initial observations:

  • Absolutely no issue with being driven by the Rega.
  • Crystal clarity in the mids and highs. The cymbals in The Dave Brubeck Quartet’s Blue Rondo A La Turk (from Time Out SACD played on the CD layer) were real, present and natural. 
  • Good bass, drums in The Dave Brubeck Quartet’s Take Five (from Time Out SACD played on the CD layer) were  natural and with snap, though not the last word in depth or tautness that comes from my floorstanders.
  • Sounded a little bit harsh on some rock, such as Maroon 5. I expect the still have to play in.  
  • Chet Baker sounds great, intimate and natural - a real treat. 
  • I enjoyed the Wharfedale Diamond 121s but these are an improvement, in detail and in more accurate reproduction (more monitor less general speaker).

All this improved by the fact I acquired them (and the speaker wire and the Rega amp) through SNA Classifieds in excellent transactions.

It’s a bit hard to tell what the new toys are when you have so much gear piled up in there.... ?

Yes kharma speaker drive by Wavac EC300B single end

I'm surprised, I would have thought the Kharma's would have been pretty hungry speakers wanting to be driven by your Halcros rather than 300Bs.

 I'd suggest some form of isolation for the speakers, will probably lift the performance up a notch.

Yes, I actually wondered about that when I noticed no little rubber feet provided with speakers.  Do you think Blutack would be a sensible option given my limited clearance?

 

I do also have those isolation pads you can buy from Bunnings.  Might give them a go first.

If possible, why not move it to the shelf above, seems a little taller than the one it's on and see if you can score some IsoAcoustics mini isopucks? Think they cost around $150 ish for 8 mini pucks.

Check this out.... 

Only US$750,000.00 a pair to acquire. 

Yeah, but they come on a lazy Susan mount, you’d expect to pay a little extra for that...

I see you have a PSA Stellar Phono Pre, care to share your opinion of its performance, perhaps compared to other phono stages you have used?

Looks amazing. Is the Perspex guard just to discourage little hands or does it serve some other purpose?

After a friend destroyed their Lyra Atlas by catching it on a jumper, I decided to mount the Perspex .

I’m using smooth. It’s an awesome bit of kit.

Yes indeed...I am also gobsmacked by its awesomeness.

 

I also use Smooth voicing. One day when I can summon enough patience I will try voicing with custom reference curves.

Great looking setup you've got there. Can you share a few more details about your speakers? They're very cool!

Thank you @Willmax.

They're Australian made WHT PR4 speakers with matching 12" stereo subs.

They're a 12" woofer with a ribbon tweeter and a sensitivity of 102db.

I'll have to look them up as I don't think I've heard about them before. Thanks for letting me know.

Strangely not as well known about in Australia, they're biggest market is in Korea and Europe.

My room? Thanks ?

I generally listen to music without the main light on, but the amplifier display lights allows me to find the wine bottle hahha

Despite the big screen, I'm pretty much on a strictly 2ch listening diet these days.

Nice system. May I ask if you have tried any valve amps with your SVA-2100? Also, any mods at all on the speakers? I got the same pair and have been thinking about upgrading the crossover. Cheers.
