Unclemack is making some changes

Recommended Posts

@unclemack Good to see John still designing and building. I wonder if Rod ever puts a foot in.

Are they valve driven?

I won't say they look great but as long as they deliver the goods sound-wise who really cares !! :thumb:

Love the look. More intimidating then the CP's.

No prize sadly but good guess. They do deliver the goods and then some. I have plans to pretty then up somewhat. 👍

Only talking about the prototype chic, rare timber veneer from wheresthatagain and shiny fixings they ain't !! :D
The actual design itself looks very cool and I'm sure once @unclemack finishes prettying them up I'm sure they'll present very well. :thumb:

The CP's were no oil painting but damn they sounded sweet.

Hope these give you much joy as well.

Yeah but with something other than the black socks, they were acceptable looking. I sort of like that monolithic look... and sound. 👍🏻

Had @Los come over to play with some EQ, placement and treatment. He did some sweeps and ended up changing some parameters to even some peaks out. This was locked into the dsp so that I can switch between the original setup to the new eq. We then loaded the room with some absorption material to see what happens. Finally we pushed the speakers further apart with a lot more toe-in. End result was wonderful. The bass is still thunderous but now it’s tighter and more detailed. Bass notes are more clearly defined. With the pull back of the horn mid, vocals have better balance in the mix and don’t feel shouty whatsoever at volume. Overall detail has dialled up and the soundstage has become wider with the speakers very much less apparent in the room. Instruments are more separated and seem to occupy their own space rather than being meshed together. The treatment together with the new placement has worked wonders. Listening to Dire Straits Making Movies was a revelation. These things just keep giving. Paul and John have provided the best sound I’ve ever had in my home. Next step will be fitting the treatment to the room and including the ceiling panels. The journey continues. Can’t thank Paul enough for taking the time to come out and set this up for me. Amazing stuff!

awesome stuff @unclemack

Thanks mate. It’s all coming together. I’ve always loved my systems but I’ve now experienced something quite new. It’s a whole new ballgame now.

Vinyl wrap?

 

You could have Pam Anderson on each, or maybe Debbie Harry, Wendy James, The Pandoras or Gladys Berejiklian. Maybe a Floyd cover or a cover from a "The Exploited or GBH" album cover.

 

Yep, sign me up for the limited edition poster run.

I’d consider Wendy James...

Am I on the list for the limited poster run?

 

Debbie Harry (in her younger day) had dinner with me at separate venues, on multiple occasions.

 

Even Nina Hagen...
