    I have asked Paul at Custom to design a stand for the 8C based on his RS302 a twin large diameter pillar design, not unlike the Liedtke ‘diva’.

    Does the fire work like a "Rubens tube"?

    Is the furniture on your LP12 from Ikea?

    The stand is a cheapie off that auction site. Looks OK & works well. Only moved into this flat a couple of months ago so the room is a work in progress. Will post new pics once the rooms sorted.

    Hi no its a electric one which allows you to change the colours I've only used to once to heat the room but love the light it gives out
    The blower is in the centre so well away from the speakers thankfully

    May I ask what your Stirling ls3/5a finish is? Thank you in advance.

    Very nice set up! :D
    What are your thoughts on the Naim 5si & Stirling ls3/5a v3s?

    It's Ebony veneer, the pictures don't do them justice, they look stunning in the flesh.
    Just need some stands to compliment them now!

    It's early days, only had the V3s a couple of weeks & the Nait about a month. Its my first taste of Naim amps in my own home, so far really enjoying the combination, they seem to compliment each other nicely.
    Having said that I found my previous V2s to be the most amp agnostic speakers I've owned, they sounded superb on everything from vintage valves (Leak Stereo 20), vintage SS (Quad 303, A&R A60) to the contemporary Nait 5Si. I would expect the V3s to be similarly versatile.

    Thank you very much - those look stunning in the pictures to me. I’m looking forward to have some in the same veneer.
