    TheDecameron Unicorns fart glitter.

    what’s the SQ of the little Quads like? Their previous domed tweeter stand mounts were lovely.

    Very detailed, wonderful midrange. Really smooth yet not shy and retiring. Not a lot of bass, hence the sub. But they are brilliant little things for sure!

    Thought I would add a few pics of my current system setup after moving things around:

    Those speakers look like a mini line array with mark audio drivers

    Are your racks made from modified Ikea tables by modifying the legs or changing the legs entirely? Or are they something else, they don't quite look like the 'HiFi Racks' product?

    What are the white faced drivers in the speakers? They look like Fostex, I know that sort of design was popular with Ted Jordan using his full range drivers.

    Yes - Ikea Lack tables. The legs have solid wood inserted and glued then cut to size. Just add the screw inserts and spikes with cups underneath. They work a treat and the total cost for everything is less than £100.

    They are Mark Audio CHP-70 drivers. The speakers were made by a company called Reiver and the model is the Jenna. Sound great in my listening room.

    Thanks for the info.
    At present I use a Lack with two 15mm thick sheets of marble cut to the table size and separated by thin sheets of flooring underlay to support my L-07D turntable. Under it I have a separate from the Lack platform spicked to the solid floor underneath that my CD transport and DAC sit on. Ideally I like to add another shorter layer of Lack to house alternative phono preamp and my SUT. I wasn't sure about the best approach to shorten and strengthen the legs to take the weight.

    My system is somewhat the antithesis of many shown here, as it's based on tweak-free rationality (where is the fun in that, I'm sure many of you ask...).

    Anyway, the core of the system is a MiniDSP SHD and a March Audio P502 (Hypex) amp. The SHD acts as a source selector and does room correction using Dirac, primarily to even out bass response. The March amp is plenty powerful enough to drive the ATC SCM40s (2x350W into 8 ohms, 2x500 into 4 ohms), is the size of a shoebox and is energy efficient.

    Music comes from an LMS server running on a Pi4, with the actual data held on the house NAS. There are various endpoints including a Squeezebox Touch, Radio, kitchen system, Office PC, and the SHD itself which contains an integrated player.

    NAS, Pi4 LMS server, network connections in wiring cupboard elsewhere in the house. I could talk about how I carefully selected the £15 Netgear switches, random ethernet cables and Virgin Media ISP connection for maximum sound quality, but you know I wouldn't mean it :)

    Kitchen system using an Audio Pro C10 wireless speaker. The old iPad is powered via USB from the C10, and controls playback using the uPnP gateway plugin in LMS.

    No, it is a Audreal XA-3200 MKII valve preamp (setup list is in my profile).
