Apologies accepted and thank you.
Life is full of discoveries e-mail Facebook and Forums are public and totally open. Ones like this are also a community, comments need to be made with respect. Comments made should be made with this in mind no matter how humorous in your head.
Believe me I sometimes want to make comments as I’m sure many of us do. They would all be taken out of context and probably cause offence no matter how humorous you think the post is. Not to mention typos that put a whole different slant on your comments. Save them for the pub with your mates its safer!
This is my first interaction with forums for this very reason.
Anyway back to the thread I’m listening to the new system now will post later about my thoughts. All I will say so far are the speakers are tiny!! Both like new!!

Boggit - Just buy what ever PP says, save yourself the trouble of trying it yourself,
Then, if it doesn't work for you, you can get him to come round and sort it out for you, no problem.
If had read my earlier responses you would have picked up on I advised a visit to local Leema dealer to hear the Elements range and see if that takes the OP's fancy.
Sorry PP, not aimed at you at all.
Apologies not needed. The grovelling bit sounds good, though.

Oh god!! ive got my post copied just waiting to post. and then i read the previous few posts!!
I really wish it was gushingly good its not bad just im not sure yet and now i feel pressured!
So my first impressions so far. Been delaying writing this as I’m not totally sure what I’ve got yet, having said that when I went to the HiFi show at Bristol I was not blown away by any system. The Heed room was good, and another room with a company I cannot remember or have not heard of, using some mono blocks with a red glow! They were good.
Bearing in mind the speakers were balanced on each arm of the sofa opposite me as I don’t have any stands yet.
(The DB1i’s are very small!) Although that does not seem to stop them producing a huge sound.
First thing I did was hook the Leema up to the Kef’s, first thing I noticed was the bass was far more pronounced and much tighter.
I then added the PMC’s I was not instantly blown away maybe I was expecting miracles.
Certainly the bass was even tighter and more controlled, still a little bright though.
The other thing I noticed after about half an hour I started to notice my knees and feet jumping up and down with the music.
I can also play the music much louder without a problem.
It also has a wider and better separated soundstage, I was starting to hear the odd instrument or voice coming from the periphery.
Very enjoyable though.
I wish I could wax lyrical but not just yet. I may take the day off tomorrow to get some stands and have a further play.
Once again thanks for all your invaluable input so far and I hope I can give you some more definitive news shortly.
Now that is openingly funny! Glad you liked the Play 3 Play 5 next?
Althought my ZP80 might be the bright bit, i feel a DAC coming on!
Yeah, balancing speakers on a armchair is far from ideal. Need some heavy weight stands to make the most of the speakers. Given those limitations it seems fine by the sounds of it.
Not totally my bag, but i loved Slow Gin and have played it alot, just shows what this forum does. Kept seeing his name thought i must try it and wow what a talented guy. Will give evening at the Vienna Opera house a stream.
No pressure Boggit...
My immediate thoughts are; I'm surprised you found them as good as you did with them just balancing on the arms of the sofa!
I'm sure you will hear a noticeable difference with them placed on proper stands.
Off to bed now and look forward to next installment tomorrow.
Cheers and thanks for the support! And probally off to find some for my speakers!
Im off to wind down my ears are ringing, even had a dance to Blondie with my 10 year old daughter!!
PS my youngest commented to Mrs boggit that she thought i had been really nice to Mrs Boggit the last few days, how perceptive if only she knew!!
