HatMan, I agree completely with your assessment! Room acoustics is as important as the equipment in the system. I was lucky that I was able to return two pairs of speakers without a penalty. I read a stellar review of a famous Canadian bookshelf speaker. Went to the local dealer and they were really...

I did some reading and a few sources on the web were claiming they are the same as Motion 15. I e mailed ML and they confirmed that they are the same with the exception of the slanted top surface. I heard them both and as my ears can tell - they are the same. The fact that I had them for over two ye...

Before D 3020 I had the NAD C326BEE and D3020 sounds quite a bit better.
Anyway, do you have any specific suggestions?

A small correction. My current speakers are not the best I ever heard. They are the best I ever owned. I am not expecting that someone else makes a decision for me. I am simply hoping that someone will be able to offer some insight based on direct experience with both. My friend has a pair of Dali b...

Currently I have a pair of LX16 and they are by far the best speakers I ever had and I had a few: LS3/5A (built from a kit), KEF 101, Proac EBT, Linn Kan, Pyramid Met 7, Focal 705V, to name a few. My main source is Bluesound Node 2, the amp is NAD D 3020 and I have NHT Super 8, sealed sub. If you ar...

There is a new (to me) NuForce DDA 120 amp. It appears to be very similar to the DDA 100. They added one analogue input and BT (Aptx) connectivity. I did not study the original enough to find any other difference. The specs sheet says that the max sampling rate is 176.4kHz and it has bit resolution ...

My system has the following components (at the moment :roll: ): NAD C326BEE, Logitech Squeezebox, Teac CD H750, Oppo DV 980H, Martin Logan LX16 (Motion 15), Paradigm PDR80 I tend to agree that NAD is still offering a great value for the money and that is why I would like to continue using the brand....

Currently I own the C326BEE and I consider it a very fine amp for the money. I am curious if changing to any of the other two would improve the sound of my humble system. I am not concerned about the connectivity options offered (analog/digital vs digital only) because both amps would suit my other ...

It is that time again....Time for a change. Currently I have a pair of Focal 705V and they sound really nice. I read numerous positive reviews for the Z 1 but until recently, they were ridiculously expensive on this continent compared to the rest of the world. Does anybody have a first hand experien...

Unfortunately Aria 906 is out of range. Both price and size wise. I was really excited when I read the news about Aria 905 and that would probably be my first choice if the price is right. We shall see soon!

A year ago I purchased a pair of Focal 705V. They were deeply discounted because Focal was making the space for a new, non "V" version. Probably this is the pair of bookshelf speakers I enjoyed the most, ever. The list of the bookshelf speakers I owned includes Linn Kan, Proac EBT,Paradigm...

Thank you djmims!
That makes sense.
I have a similar problem like you do. My Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 had a very nice sound at the showroom, big stage, perfect imaging. In my installation, very close to the back wall, the sound is nowhere near to the one I was expecting.

The post #1 in this thread states Dreamcatcher for $ 300!
Nobody seems surprised.
Am I the only one who does not know how to get it at that price?
I would appreciate your comments in that regard.
Thanks!
