Thought I’d try filling my Soundstyle Z2 stands so went for the Custom Design inert filler. Only cost me around a tenner which is enough to fill each main tube almost completely. I’ve started by filling I reckon an inch or 2 above half way as worried too full may dull the sound. So far I can hear little to no difference. Becoming a worrying trend as recently changed my cartridge from Rega Elys to Nagaoka MP110 and felt was a small improvement only. Been experimenting also with speaker position again and difference was minimal to me. Are my ears ruined (from countless metal Gigs!) or am I expecting too much? Is one part of my system strangling any improvements, or is all the talk on these forums a huge black void of over exaggeration?
Not having a go at forum I’ve learned so much from reading here but am starting to feel a bit disillusioned with it all. I always remember that the music comes first, and the system is only the means to hearing it at the highest quality within constraints of budget and room. Thanks for any opinions.
