Don't you find your cat gets intimidated by the woofers?

Not at all, the cross siamese takes on anyone, our little tricolore is very gentle, just sits quietly to one side pretending it all has nothing to do with her.

Thought you meant 'Maine Raccoon'. Sorry.

Never managed a raccoon, but when we lived in Sydney we did catch a possum trying to climb into our (2nd foor) living room from a nearby tree!

Never realised the little EDITED was after my speakers........

Hi Cno..

I've tried replacing the stock fuse of the EMC1 UP with AMR gold fuse. And the result is not good  for my liking! I'ts too warm and lost some micro-details. Don't know why? Where does expectation bias here! Back to the stock fuse and everything opens up again!

It just means you're beyond help, my friend.....maybe try Silver ones instead.  shifty

Cno.. silver ( hi fi tuning fuse supreme) is even worst! I thought that the EMC 1UP was voiced with its own fuse.. which IMO sounds best!excellent!

It's not an amp you get tired of listening to.

Do you have access to Valhalla Technology VT 50 isolation pads for an amplifier?....they're £20 for 4, and I'd be intrigued by what you think. http://www.kronosav.com/valhalla-technology-vt-amplifier-feet-50-prices-...?
