Hi Pryml.A Marantz CD player! I've been in that happy club...! Good luck in the comp' - you're obviously someone who attends to detail. ;-)Ben
Hi PrymlWelcome to Chews, I really hope you'll like it here enough to want to join in the fun. If you know anyone else who might like to join (or could use the cables) give them a shout too. Thats wahat the comp is for, and we are delighted to see new faces.Your system doesn't seem modest at all, in fact I bet it would have aquitted itself well at the Scalford show. You seem to have an eye for details, as Ben said. What sort of speakers do you think you'll get?
Welcome PrymlDon't forget, you can enter the competition as many times as you like.
Hi to all @ audiochews.Joined yesterday after being at the hospital. My goodness, what are they putting in my pills now?Not in the trade but know a few people in it who have been very helpful getting me some hi-end stuff at mid-end prices.Based in London and almost retired.
EarLicks ... a word that might describe how music might settle upon your auditory senses.
Hi, allMy name is James Ive been a hifi fruit cake for some time.I have been a John Farlowe Exposure fan and had an XI pre with a whopping IX power supply going into a IVDR power amp. Feeding these was either a M2Tech Young Dac or an Audiolab MDac. On the other end of my system is a pair of ATC scm 35's I recently made the the very very impulsive purchase of a pair of NVA A80's & A40's from Steve on the Wam. I had no intention of leaving the Expo camp but I have always fancied the idea of Monoblocs.So Thats me really, I am a big fan of acoustic music, I love Jazz, and ANYTHING that sounds good. I recently came across a chap called Victor Wooten, which is down right Funky and I have been buying up all of his albums.People have been talking about the sound of old school Tannoy type speakers for a long time and I have always been very curios so I made the most impulsive purchase yet, I bought a pair of Goodmans Magister speakers that are being delivered to me on Wednesday. I think they need a bit of work to get them up to speed but they are going to be my tweaking/restoring project so watch this space.
Hi from sunny (at last) Wilts
Hifi equipment: Advent laptop (Pentium II, 1 GB RAM, Vista SP1, SP 2), Foobar (WASAPI exclusive), M2 Tech Young (SN, mid 700s), rest of equipment bought late 80s: preamp of 2 box Meridian CDP 207Pro, Van den Hul Yellow to Kube (bass enhancer ) of KEF 103/3, Siltech to NAD 2150 power amp, twin core and earth to speakers .
The bass enhancer circuit and the 4 th order Linkwitz-Riley crossover of the Kefs complement the class B amplifier by absorbing the nasties wile allowing most of the music through. For domestic reasons the speakers sit in an “L” shaped room, 2.5 ft from a window and 2.5 ft from 1 side wall and 12 ft from other side wall and 6.5 ft apart (with TV in the middle ). I sit 16 ft away with a window 2 ft behind me. I tend to listen to “greatest hits” - each track tends to have different spatial information on it. The soundstage can vary from 12 ft in width, 5 ft depth and 7 ft in heighth; to “between the speakers”, 2 ft high and 3 ft deep.Music tastes - anything except opera and pop music when it was decided to split it into different genres. I listen to red book CDs and am amazed at the information the Young is able to extract from them. One issue I have is that I get an error message when I set the bit depth to 32 and therefore set it to 24.
Hello everyone, havn't had any music for 8 months, since off loading a Weiss DAC, Adam Audio speakers and HD800 headphones. Well from getting a text out of the blue from the chap who bought the DAC, I'm pleased to say its sitting right next to me, after I picked it up earlier today!!! From confirming my intention to buy it last Friday, by luck I snapped up a pair of second hand Adam Audio Epsilon speakers. I just love the sou d it's producing. Hello to Alan and Dave, missed your humour, and to James and Keith.Good to be back.
