  1. I look at that video and think to myself the hifi dealer had a wet dream when he walked through his door . I think people do not have to spend that kind of money to enjoy music as long as they think about how they put there setup together . I personal think that chap in the video is about hifi snobbery and just worrying about having the best in the world where most people get just the same enjoyment from main stream hifi and lets face it the hifi is only as good as the recording you play on it and the room you play it in which most of us have living rooms we have to share with our family's .
  2. Xentrix are still going but different lead singer now they are a great band but like all of there early stuff but the new album with the new singer is not the same as there old stuff
  3. To be totally honest i want to lower the box count to just my amp , CD player , streamer that is why i thought about buying the streamer from minidsp as it did streaming , Roon , and room correction in one box
  4. For some reason the RME Dac needs an XLR connection for the sound and a optical cable for the screen display signal on the RME Dac as the RME Dac has taking over the Dac inside the OPPO so for the CD player i have it connected using a Coax and XLRs to take over the Dac inside the CD player . If i just connect the XLRs only i do not get a screen signal on the RME display
  5. My OPPO is connected optically / XLRs running through the RME Dac and my CD player i am using Coax / XLRs through the RME Dac so thought if i could get SHD that does streaming , Roon , Dirac live i could take the OPPO out of the chain and just use my CD player ,and the SHD for streaming
  6. Not brought anything yet still looking
  7. You made a good choice i think to be honest the Dali opticons are the sweet spot of the range
  8. Its not got rid of it Its just not as bad on them 2 tracks but i just did not understand why i started to get the sibilance as i never had it with my old speakers only on my new ones . I have read sibilance can be in the recording in how they recorded the singers voice
  9. Thanks all for the help
  10. This bit bothers me .....extended high frequencies
  11. to be honest nonsense ones as long as they measure well but as Tuga has said the Mogami ones are nonsense but do own a pair
  12. Chord make just copper ones i see but as you go up the range they make them sliver lined
  13. I do own a pair of theses already but when i connect them up the top end goes a bit sharp so not sure if theses are sliver lined . i would have to message the seller to find out
  14. Just discovered something about my cables both sets of XLRs i own are sliver lined so i have put on a couple of sets of RCAs in the chain instead and now the treble is not so sharp . I like using the XLRs so need to look out for just copper made ones as i have noticed a lot of them are sliver lined when you look at the spec
  15. Yes I knew about no toe-in even through I’ve been to dealers who think it’s ok to have a little toe-in . My speakers are setup on the longest part of the room well away from side walls and 28’’ from back wall but do have a fake wood floor but have a big rug between my speakers . I was thinking of buying drac live to measure my room and to get the very best out my speakers and my setup
