RE: Leema Pulse and PMC DB1i

Good weighty stands will make all the difference:) Even though my signature states Mission stancettes . I am now using Partington Super dreadnoughts.Everytime i try and change signature it reverts back to Mission stancettes |(

I hope so tryed one on the cupboard really boomy and seemed to go out of time.

Thanks for your post with your thoughts, do you find the 8200 a marked difference to the squeezebox?

Not surprising. Please don't beat yourself up. Good quality hi-fi speakers are not designed for cupboards or armchairs. Heavy stands like Partington or Kudos, and place them about 12" from the back wall. To get the most of separation they need to be at least 6' apart. Do this and they should sing with the Leema.

I actually sold my squeezebox to fund my Db1i purchase,yes there was a difference, but probably not a major difference in what the £500 price gap suggests.i would love to know what you think once you get your stands.

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!!

 

Ah... you paint a nice picture there... kids! they can drive you mad, then they come out with something like that... makes it all worthwhile.

No wonder you wanted to go to bed you get up to early!!

I must admit it was rather fun, but you soon realise how much weight you have put.

OK im off today to try and find some speaker stands.

That's late for me... normally up at 5.30 when going to work.

Hope you've had some luck with finding some stands.

RE: Leema Pulse and PMC DB1i

Day 2 and all I can say is wow and wow.

Started looking for speaker stands, listening to the radio, normally I don’t like the radio through the hifi preferring the Play 5 but it sounded OK in fact brilliant airy normal radio sounding but much better. 

So I switch back and forward to the Rotel Kef yes the Leema was better but not by as much as I’d hoped.

Went off to pick up the stands, assembled them, put them in place mucked about with various position booming to start with too near rear wall, then...... 

It just sounded brilliant ( my speaker disapeared) I’ve had Passenger, Joe Bonamassa, Neil Diamond (love him)  REM, Muse, Eric Clapton, Artic Monkeys, all in my front room. I heard Dire Straits Sultans of Swing on the radio this morning so I thought I’d give it a whirl I was taken aback it was so fast and tight it shocked me sounded superb 

Everthing was so enjoyable pacey fun and god can it go loud, I had goose bumps!! I’m still listening to it know. 

Mrs boggit likes new look as well “ I hated those old things” 

So after last nights debacle today has been very positive I love the setup so loud controlled and just everything!

Well done Boggit. It takes a while to tweak the speaker position but the wait is worthwhile.

What stands did you end up buying?

It should sound even better over the next week or so as your ears will fully adjust to the new sound.

Good luck
