That STAX 300 unit does look really good with the rest of the furniture and also in its own right. Very nice.
Thanks both for your comments. Worried that I don't know what to do next. Guess its the jigsaw. (Not the 2000 piece but the cutting variety)
Have to say whilst listening to my laptop fan whirring (its not its customery cooling base). Forget about clearance of equipment - use a couple of quiet fans. electronics really do like a cool breeze.

Guess you have cut your unit then Stu?
Pass the saw please mate.
Any thoughts on a fig8 mains lead for the Sky etc ?
No mate not cut mine as i've never found my centre "boomy" tbh. There's a thread on here about upgraded fig8 leads tho.I tried some upgraded mains leads a while ago but they didn't work for me, but when I tried 2 mains conditioners in my system instead I found some performance improvements I could see and hear. Cheers
Looks very nice indeed....although I couldn't put up with anything placed on top of my speakers and definitely no vase full of water on top of the rack. Tempting fate....
Thanks drummersdave. The vase - now a nice chess set. The top of the speakers? Hint in the title - compromise ! Godda go and set the saw to my unit .... Dash - shes back !
Dusted off the old Garrard now. Flowers - Chess set - Deck. Sounds quite decent for an old un'. (The deck, not me). Still not reached for the saw to cut out the back of the unit but enjoying the system for now. Have experimented with front and rear speaker angles which seems to help. I bought an ebay sound meter - waste of money - my Yamaha seemed to set the levels spot on. (More kit for sale on Gumtree then)
Indeed, the Stax 300 looks very nice. I've ordered a Stax 500, slightly wider than standard, in teak. Very nice system too.
Thanks psycoschnauzer. An improvement visually on the old Optimum. I recon the enclosed design necessiates a cooling fan tho. I recommend QuietPC - great company and some very quiet fans driven from small 12v supply.
Serious changes now - anyone want some pix ? New red cushions ! Well - all in the title - godda compromise. Still thinking about holes in the cabinet but socks seem to be the best errrrm - compromise. Back to the decorating now
