RE: Finally my new system as of......now!!

Anyone know of any retailers in Scotland that will allow me to home trial dacs??  WAnting to find out if they will make a difference to my system.  Like the look of the Arcam rdac anf the Audiolab dac too.  

I think that this will be the best way to find out if i can justify the upgrade.

 

Thanks 

John

RE: Finally my new system as of......now!!

Your system is looking pretty damn gorgeous! Love the look of those RX-models! I've heard this system a few times and as always Monitor Audio gets it right. You had some tips/questions fo  me on my system, so I'll do the same for you: have you tried placing the center speaker to the edge of the cabinet to avoid an extra "baffle" that "muddy" the sound? Might look 'off' at first, but from a pure performance standpoint I would think it's ideal? Are you using any isolation spikes underneath?

Thanks for the tips Ricky. Much appreciated.  Never really thought about moving the centre. Will try it definitely. Watching the batmans again (the good ones- in readiness for the final episode this summer). 

Was thinking about tilting the centre upwards at the front towards the listening position.  I don't have isolation feet under the centre.  Fitted a new kitchen and had loads of the little rubber door dampers.  So stuck 4 of them on it more to protect from scratches....

 

Not done a lot to my settup in a while maybe need to spend some time on it....

 

Cheers

John

Its a TX-P65ST50B. Can't wait to pick it up. 

 

Its going to replace my Pio in the main system(it's going to the snug next door for gaming duties for my son. )

 

I am sitting here wondering what a 65" screen will look like nestled on the wall. Hopefully I won't need to move my original wall bracket. As it looks like from the pics I have seen the bolt holes for wall mounting the panny are on the lower half of the back of the screen unlike the pio where it is mid mounted to the bracket.  

 

Need a shot of my wife's car to fit it in and finish @ 3ish to get to the store before closing time.
