  1. Great, thanks guys, lots to think over, very much appreciated
  2. That's very interesting thank you, I hadn't even considered that. Cheers.
  3. Hi Myles, that does appear to be a suitable contender thanks. Travelling is an issue for me though, so I'll need to give it some thought. What is the finish and price please? Are they in good condition?
  4. Hi All, Intriguing title I know Having recently suffered some immediate and permanent hearing damage, really bloody annoying and way too tragic to go into here, I now find myself looking for a new sound. So I'm looking for speakers that have a snappy musical midrange. Standard cone (or maybe horn loaded?) speakers as opposed to ribbons or panels, and not too bass heavy as the acoustics in my room are awful so I'm using twin REL subs to manage the bass. To be honest I don't really care what they are, it's about the music, and my budget would be in the region of £500 but would
  5. Bless her heart, you're doing the right thing and I wish you every sucess with the sales. Unfortunately I've recently sustained some hearing damage and am about to do a sell off myself otherwise I'd be all over this DAC.
  6. Thanks crxvtec, it's an odd situation I suppose but for some reason only the active Audioquest HDMI cables do the trick over that distance. I'm not sure why though. I've tried other cables supposedly high speed 4K jobbies, even a different brand active cable, but the projector screen kept going pink and the only way to reset was unplug and plug in again. The Audioquest active was the only cable to perform faultlessly. Ultimately it's only a Roku stick which technically could go right next to the projector but it runs to an AV splitter which then feeds a 9.1 headphones transmitter and the
  7. Thank you, I've been giving it some thought and I think I'm probably better off sticking with the Audioquest now seeing as there are a few of their cables in the set up already and I know that I like what they do. Much appreciated though
  8. Hi All, I'm looking for a 10M Audioquest active HDMI cable, or a non-active but at least 8M, preferably higher up the scale than the Pearl. Currently using an active 10M Cinnamon between a Roku stick and projector and I really like that but I need to hook up a blu-ray player too so I'm certainly open to others like perhaps Chocolate, Forest, or Carbon or something along those lines. It can even have a sillier name, I don't mind I do like Audioquest AV cables but I'm equally open to other suggestions too if you have something that would suit a longer connection. Many thank
  9. The Carbon is outstanding and it shocked me how much of a difference it made when swapping for a standard run of the mill USB cable. I bought one on the basis that I could return it if I wasn't impressed, and having read various forums regarding if it actually matters or not my hopes were not high, but within seconds I could hear a big step up. It makes me wonder how some can't hear the difference I have to say, so I can recommend the Carbon for sure.
  10. I can't access the website at the moment, they're preparing for Brexit. Can you tell me if this has any sonic advantages over a standard external hard drive?
  11. With thanks to familyguy I now have some Audioquest Rocket 44's on the way, however I am still open to some Kimber 8TC speaker cables if anyone has some to shift. Or something else for that matter, I'm always open to suggestion. With things as they are I can think of worse ways to spend an evening or two than playing with new cables over a glass of wine
  12. Hahaha yeah I know what you mean, still I can't help but fiddle with it
  13. Hi all, long time lurker here... I'm currently looking for an upgrade of my Audioquest Rocket 11 speaker cable and was thinking perhaps that Kimber 8TC or Rocket 44 might serve me well. Not fussy on length, in fact the shorter the better, and I'm also open to suggestions based on my modest little system of a Hegel H90 running Magnepan LRS. If anyone has anything suitable they're willing to sell, or even just a suggestion or two, I'd be very grateful to hear of it. Will it even make that much of a difference? Now there's a thorny subject but I'm equally eager to hear any thoughts
