For the purpose of symmetry I think you should have gone for the lamp shade option on both speakers.

Notice how the stem is bang in the middle and perpendicular of course :D

Lockdown box swapping/buying madness continues.

Plugged direct into Node 2i. Tried crossover in Node and on subwoofer, not sure what's best yet.

Will go in final position tomorrow once spikes and shoes added. Seriously considering some SVS soundpath feet as well.

Gone from old Naim Uniti via Naim pre power and Linn Majik DSM with Focal speakers to Node 2i direct to XTZ class d power amp with Wharfedale Evo 4.3 and BK sub in less than a year!

Red light Brook? I didn't think it was that sort of neighbourhood 😜

Got few solid state preamps to try in my system. Had to purchase them all unfortunately and only one will stay. 

This week Ayre K-1XE is playing. Like it a lot tbh. Ran my amps with Mytek Manhattan built in pre for a while and didn't think they sounded bad, but adding decent separate active preamp improved many things for my liking. 

Next week will do Ayre and Bryston bp26 shootout. Probably will connect my Puresound L300 for reality check too.

The folks at home might be intrigued by what your new spinner is called Brook..(and how are you pronouncing that?)

Good point Jack.

It is a Scheu Analogue Premier, with an Origin Live Encounter tonearm & for now a A&R P77 MM cartridge, in place of my usual Sumiko Pearwood Celebration ii.

Scheu is actually pronounced Shoy, as in boy phonetically, not shoe as might be expected. Here is a slightly better photograph.

Had a few subs in my time and Rel was the best. 👍

BK sub in position now and another addition in the form of an audiolab amp acting as a preamp. Compared with and without out power amp and definitely better with.

Black is the colour now so if I do get a DAC for the Node it will match.

I leave the grilles on this is just for forum pic!

Cables are getting messy, will need to tidy sometime.

Cheers
