I have always been concerned with the amount of movement and spring that I get from my Jarrah floorboards and there is a dodgy patch up from where a nib wall was taken out which just happens to be where my rack and speaker sits.

I will address the speaker side of things when funds permit by getting some Isoacoustics gaia footers.

 

When I was working on the  new Perth Children’s Hospital build I put aside some isolation fittings that were used for the transport of some sensitive imaging equipment. I thought that I may be able to use them sometime. 

So have just put them to use under my newly built rack. I will source some suitable threaded adapters at a later date to attach them properly, but this will do the trick for now.

I’m really not sure if I’m imagining things but I think it has made an improvement. It certainly hasn’t made things sound worse so it was a worthwhile exercise I think. It’s also raised the height of the rack a little which is a good thing.

Ive also added an old cdp to the rack until my other gets back from the doctors. I probably won’t use it but it makes the rack look a little less empty.

I also picked up some material that the missus was happy with  to wrap the acoustic panels in. This week I will grab the aluminium channel to hang the panels from. I will update with more photos later.

Had a bit of fun this afternoon listening to @Mendes beast of a dac and transport. Really got the Classic 20’s singing sweet sweet music.

The weight and depth the dac added to the system was unbelievable. Extremely smooth, but with amazing detail as well.

That audio Synergy DAC is very special.

I first heard it at a GTG a few years ago along with a group of very high end and other DACs and to me it was clearly better than any of them.

Room treatments are go. 😁

Im using 25mm Quietspace acoustic panels. 2400 x 1200mm cut down to fit the space where they will go.

Eventually they will be hung from the picture rail so I can take them down easily and keep the missus happy. I will update with more pics and how it sounds later.

You have a nice chair which blends in nicely with whole house next to window.

The chair is in need of a refurb but it goes well there.

It is a very nice sounding dac, very organic and the music just seems to flow. 

Im pretty happy with the Geek pulse dac that I have, not in the same league but also a lot cheaper.

So I’ve finished the wall acoustic panels, I’ve still got to cover the panels that I’ve got lining the fireplace but that can wait for a little bit.

I have wrapped the panels in a linen fabric that the missus picked out. I’m not overly happy how this turned out but it looks ok from a distance 😉.

They are hung from stainless steel cables that are crimped and attached to a aluminium channel that I have painted the same colour as the walls.

The missus absolutely hates them and has complained a lot!!!!! But they have been designed to easily come down and hide them away.

 

The panels have dramatically changed the sound of the room and system. The best value for money I have spent on the system so far. Quite amazing the difference in sound for about $450 all up and a little bit of time. 👍10A748F8-421F-4FC5-A67E-14F4ED86E84B.thumb.jpeg.f84997badb655e04ff2609c1017fa1de.jpeg945CB228-7D17-402B-ACA1-55F8B062E654.thumb.jpeg.c3cd5d31e047eff9e8f4209457daeaac.jpegB6068523-C7E8-42B3-820B-E660805FECF5.thumb.jpeg.af4f8a2196fdae3ffb28875bc71db580.jpeg4CDA4F42-8718-4C90-9335-857DF30D5D5E.thumb.jpeg.e5340026d5572c5d1c6afea1f119f680.jpegF52C326C-1145-4979-AE3E-095F5FC0F2EA.thumb.jpeg.95c4f2ffeb9fcdb92dc5639516f7a003.jpeg
