sorry about that. Tried a trick I use on iPad to post elsewhere but didn't work. I'll try something else.

RE: carbon

Lhc, i know, its not ideal but i am sitting about 5.5m from them plus the missus insisted on the white av unit so its a bit of a compromise. You dont get a great stereo image but it does sound suprisingly good and the smooth Denon Ceol does tame the 'live' sounding room

RE: carbon

With the greatest of respect, I have to suggest that in those corner positions those speakers must be booming like very boomy things. puzzled

RE: carbon

Hi Andrew, they really don't , when i first installed them i thought this would be the case, to the point that i agreed with my dealer that i could swap them for stand mounts if so as i cant stand bass boom.I tried them with full and partial bungs but they were too bass light,so i run them bungless and they are about 600mm from rear wall.The only album i find causes any problems is Sean Hayes 'Before we turn to dust' as it has a really prominent upper bass but over all it has a quite neutral tonal balance.My son doesnt like his dubstep through the system as he says theres not enough bass.

RE: carbon

Sorry to say this, but if those speakers don't have enough bass, you are doing some thing rong with the connections...

 

And by the way congrats on your home decor! Love those white CM8! I Have myself white Excite X12 Dynaudios!  Cool

RE: carbon

HI FI OUTLAW.   Thanks for the comments,iv'e just checked your system thread it looks great and i bet it sounds fantastic,i love rega stuff.I will probablly upgrade to the brio r and dac at some stage having allready auditioned them when i was choosing my CM8's plus i don't live far from the factory,and that will allways factor when spending my hard earned.I settled on the Ceol as its so easy to use for the whole family without much compromise in quality.With regards to to the CM8's bass they definitely have it's just not overblown as some people are suggesting and my son has got used to his dj mixing desk playing through B&W Rock Solids and Big Yamaha sub i gave him.
