Two steps forward...
Two things have happened lately, on which I'd be grateful for views from all sides.
Firstly and probably more controversially, equipment mounting (oer). Last week, I was quite disenchanted by the hifi. With all the kafuffle I've put the wife and the bank balance through lately with hifi shopping, I thought I'd better keep schtumm.
It was the wife who first mentioned it was sounding a bit rubbish. I 'fessed up and we realised we moved the hifi off its previous home (wood and glass console table, cd and amp next to each other) onto a narrow, tall wooden thing, with amp on top of hifi. We put it back as it was and it's was nice and sharp and crispy again.
I've since chopped up an oak sleeper (not one full of tar) to make a trendy oak bench and I'm quite happy with it.
So questions are:
1) Did we imagine the whole thing or does what we (think we) heard sound plausible?
2) What further improvements can I make? Those isolation platforms/feet? Any DIY stuff to try (foam etc?)
