1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Good photos :)

    (but doesn’t a mini print of Rothko’s work rather miss the point?)

  3. Thanks! You'd be surprised just how much detail and attention has been put into making them, but yes, theirs nothing like sitting in front of the full scale works at the Tate.

  8. Surely you feel the end of 2019 ... tis been a dodgy year on many accounts so yes, looking forward to 2020 indeed!

    Very nice, but if my system is anything to go by that glass/wood table would affect the sound too much?
  10. Its not that big, 800x800mm and theres plenty of 'soft stuff' in the room. The 3x4m 60-ish KG rug sorts the room acoustics out.

    Nice clean setup. Could you add the system description? The speakers look interesting

    Both old pictures but you get the idea, gone back to the NHT's and sold the Arrays a while back (a mistake in retrospect, although the NHT's are better at some things, horses for courses). Nothing has changed much in the second picture other than seating i can spin round on like doctor evil, and better acoustic treatment, the speakers are now spiked to the floor.
    Not much to show equipment wise the 4 NHT monoblocks and crossover are in a closet and functional rather than blingy. Rest of the system is EE Minimax Preamp and Azur CA Dac. Have a bedroom 90's system too which is ProAc D15's, Magnum Integrated/ DPA and various other Dacs and a Dynaudio/Sunfire active setup in another room too.

    ... any print of Rothko misses the point sadly... Seagram Murals at Tate modern a few years back was one of the best days of my life.

    They are on the wall now, (although the JBL's were fairly even and focused i could get away with just the GIK panels to take away the flutter echo) i've got a mixture of them and the Vicoustics, i got a job lot of them at a good price! The NHT's are infinite baffle, the floor is a void so it creates a null at 100hz or so which makes the NHT's a bit lean in the Mid-bass if your not sitting in the right spot. The JBL had a hump at 100Hz that cancelled out the null, so were much richer sounding, as well as being a ported design.
