Amazing!

just turning on and off would require intense concentration (no drinking for you!!)

Our setup has always been heavily geared to movie watching, but after arriving at this point we’ve realised how enjoyable a nice two channel system can be and have been listening to more music than ever!

@Wood Bluesound direct into the Musical Fidelity?

 

Those R100s are the forgotten child but are very good


That’s correct. Works really well for our needs. 
 

Out of shot are two more R100s as surrounds. 
 

What I’d like to do next is make an investment in some better fronts and move the current fronts to rear surround duty.

I bet it does. Always happy to see people get more music listening time.

 

If you have the subs running with music too it will take a bit of beating even with floorstanders.

I really like it. Looks neat and classy. As Bunno said, it might be hard to better what you have running those subs with the R100's. Are those Rel's?

Trying out some speakers to "scratch an itch" so to speak.....

First up...Wharfedale Evo4.3's......out of the box SQ was awful...no bass, detail lacking, thin sound.....like wtf.....:unsure:

 

After a week of running in SQ has improved beyond recognition tbh...... the AMT and dome sure are something nice.....

Weather was average yesterday so few tunes. Lovin' these speakers with the NRA, great combo. Repainted the speaker trolleys and next is to repaint the cabinets.

G'day Folks.

 

Stepping into this thread anxiously...  among so many fine systems.

 

I was going to post a few days ago, opened the thread and found Chanh was the previous post...  no thanks...  not posting straight after that one, no way in hell!!!

 

Loving mwhouston's minimal and DIY approach...  and Wolverine's Mc Intosh display.

Sjay's big black thumpers...  and well, everything else about that pic.  The fresh prince, dwbasement and pop's beautiful tubes... I've never heard tubes, but still get a warm feeling just looking at them.

 

Mendes, Cheekyboy ( you or the hound? ), and Grizzly...  just awesome guys.

 

I agree with stevoz on two points...  you can never have too many speakers but it sure helps to be single... and Tasebass' Rotels are my dream amplifier.

 

Since joining SNA I've learned much, I've heard two very nice systems of other members in Canberra, and taken the first few, modest steps up the audio ladder...  with a Music Hall TT, phono stage and new ( 2nd hand ) Rotel amp.

I've taken the plunge into DIY speakers, stands and two racks for Hi Fi & TV.

 

036.JPG.b4cf23c40ac6322cd3ebeb2f5d87fee8.JPG

 

TV is not a priority here, but there is a freshly painted, 3 shelf rack nearing completion.

 

I'm listening to the orange, 2 way, Tip Shop speakers, with extra, smaller bass drivers on stands next to the set of drawers.  Replaced the Hokutone drivers with Sony's and the tweeters with AR's.  Using a 2 way AR crossover for the cabinet drivers.

They sound pretty good.  The cabinets are sealed and the bass is fat...  just how I like it.  The extra drivers are nothing special...  not actually marked... . so you can guess the quality there.  I will soon have some nice drivers to play around with.

 

The other two pair of speakers are the black / grey Sony's and white Technics...  all three pair have been re-furbished, none are finished, and all have to come apart for completion.

I'm thinking of making a new baffle for the Sony's...  thick enough to bring the drivers flush.  I like the 'Metal' theme, and nod to Cerwin Vega, but a less 'half pulled apart' look wouldn't go astray.

The Technics crossovers were upgraded by tubularbells and sound big and open.  They just have to be painted...  that's the undercoat, which I like very much.  They were going to be black with a charcoal front, but now they will be gloss white.

 

I am making stands for all speakers.

It's not about how much we spend...  but I guess it's relative...  I spend as much as I can afford too.

One of the many things I respect this forum for, is the diversity of members, music and eqiupment.

Nothing to be anxious about @BuzzzFuzzz. :) 

Speaking as someone who is lucky enough to be swimming in the deeper end as far as I'm concerned it doesn't matter what end of the fish pond that you are swimming, only important thing is that you are swimming !!

 

The system looks great, a great example of working with what you have. :thumb:

Thanks mate.

 

I'm currently listening to Dianna Krall for the first time in my life.  Before SNA I would never have listened, let alone enjoyed this.  It sounds wonderful ( flac ).

I find myself listening to the sound more and more, generally avoiding lesser quality recordings...  dear o dear... my younger Metal head would hang in shame...  it would bang no more.

 

Things are starting to click for me regarding Hi Fi, time on SNA is never wasted...  much more to learn.

 

Enjoying the ride... although I do get a little impatient sometimes.  I think it teaches valuable lessons.

 

Did I mention Dianna Krall sounds wonderful?

Don't know if I can condone the Diana Krall but expanding one's musical horizons in this little hobby can be a great thing. :D

What is the speaker setup Keith? Is it a bookshelf on top of a sub or is that the speaker design? If so those bookshelves look damn deep 😲

The two way head units are sealed enclosures and I guess you achieve internal volume where you can. They are passive and the 10” Lorantz active bass bins are also sealed enclosures. You could say they are two way standmounts with subs, but they are more like a three way loudspeaker.

 

Cheers,

 

Keith

DIY 4 way with passive radiators. Incorporating Seas, Alpair & SB Acoustics. The speaker cabinet resonance is dead and well built, one of the best I've seen as a diy. They sound fantastic. Frequency response 26Hz - 25KHz.

I've noticed it's a name that is referred to frequently, particularly around audio shows...  and that she's loved and loathed by many.

True !! :D 

Personally I'm just not a fan of the whole giving songs the slow sleepy "audiophile" treatment.

That said I do like good recordings but tend to prefer music where the artist tries to do something more interesting with the music.

:-) Years ago I would only play her, under sufferance, to keep my beloved happy and I thought she (Dianna) was pretty dreadful.   Then as my system quality improved, so seemingly did Dianna. 

I really came to like a few of her albums. She is always well recorded and the close miking is really quite intimate and highlights her luscious phrasing.
