 Forum: Speakers   Topic: Anyone Use Their Subwoofer Selectively?

The specs on your speakers shows they cut off at 46Hz. Placing your sub cross over around 50hz would get rid of lower mid range / upper bass bloat, which is consistent with what you described you heard, when you turned the sub off on Bruce Cockburn (who prob does not have much going on at 46 hz)

They say confession is good for your soul, so: 1) I bought a pair of speakers out of the US that I heard at a friend's house "15 years ago", just because they were available; and and I liked them at the time. Had no where to use them but did it just because I could. Enjoyed them briefly an...

No offer is a bad offer. For me it all just needs to be respectful. I can’t understand people who get angry at so called low ball offers. Or people who just don’t respond to an offer. It just means someone values your stuff less than you do and maybe you need to reflect on that. When I give an offe...

In that price range I now like Musical Fidelity. I was so impressed with a recent M5si I heard of theirs.
Hegel 80, not so much. I found it to be a bit of blaster amp. No finesse. Did not like the DAC.
Prefer external dacs for obsolescence reasons stated above.

I always get a laugh out of these type forums and although I mostly lurk, had some time to kill today. It is the same old crusty responses from glass half empty people, treating the young like some kind of scourge to music. Music is our hobby here, as such, we are far above the norm in what we dedi...

It’s all electricity. The cleaner your deliver it the better. A good Power Cord will do this better than a cheap PC; not unlike lamp cord wire vs. Quality speaker cables.

Oh... and while you’re at it, run a dedicated 20A line to your wall.

And a quality wall set.

Oh... and......

My next pair?

Mind you, I've had my Gamut Phi 5's for over 5 years which is a record, in spite of multiple contenders who've come and gone; so the Gamut must be the current running favourite.

Until..... ???

This one cracked me up. From a friend, when I told him about a ridiculously low offer I received, for an item I had for sale. My friend replied to me that I should: “Send him an invoice for $50 for wasting your time”. :lol: :lol: :lol: Original! So instead of “Lowballers will be politely ignored”, t...

One more link... this is the ECM Catalogue with cd covers, and descriptions I've already found a ton more new music. The series are broken out. I really like the music on the NEW SERIES Listening to Anja Lechner doing Valentin Silvestrov’s music for solo violonce...
