Almost two weeks on, is it sounding any better?

RE: Oops

Nope, still sounds rubbish.

Which is odd, I thought one got used to having no bass.

Get used to it, my Sister has a smallish Samsung in her living room and the sound is like nails down a blackboard.:O

RE: Oops

TBH it's not really a big deal, it's just for casual use in the kitchen.  Connecting it to an amp and speakers would be more trouble than it's worth I suspect...

Has the Missus got an iPod or anything? Could get a smallish dock, or even a DAB radio with an aux in for sound duties.

RE: Oops

We have a number of things in the hifi drawer, I'm just not sure I can be bothered Smile

We have a long narrow kitchen with a door to the hall at the end, on one side of which sits the TV, and on the other the Mac. Tempted to amp up the Mac and have some Neat Iotas wall mounted up in the corners. The TV could then piggyback into that amp, but the wiring could be a little awkward so not sure whether I have the energy (or indeed patience) to explain to everybody how it works.

I've decided that January 2013 is "get some pictures of my systems" month so folk will be able to see my kitchen arrangement. Hoever, my kitchen is not far off square, as opposed to yours being long and thin. And I don't need to explain the wiring to anyone!

Small pair of PC speakers? I have a £40 set of Creative Audio jobs hooked up to the headphone socket of our bedroom TV, and the sound is pretty decent. Far better than TV speakers even when hidden behind the TV, as the boss lady prefers.
