Re: Speaker stands

It would certainly be better for me from the perspective of (a) not having three legs near the down firing mid bass (b) they can't be knocked over so no centre of gravity issues (c) any vibrations are sunk into a very high mass construction that won't vibrate like a suspended floor (not that I have...

Re: Speaker stands

I wall mounted my Cube 1s in my last house. This was more to make sure they didn't get knocked as this was in the main living room. I think I broke all the 'rules' so they were higher than ear height in the corners of the long side of the wall with a chinmney breast in the middle. The mounts were ad...

Re: NVA Reviews (THIS THREAD IS ONLY FOR STASHING REVIEWS)

I took advantage of the offer earlier this year to upgrade my A80s to MkIII spec and after a short wait for Tomasz to return to the UK a received them about four weeks ago.

Re: The BMU Bandits

I had one of the first run and it stayed and won't be moving. The immediate effect was like having an extension to the living room as the rear wall seemed to have been moved back 6 feet - incredible.

Re: Richard Dunn

Very sorry to here of Richards passing, a great loss. Like some others here my fist experience was an 80s AP20 which I still have and use.

Re: NME

My mum was on front desk and switch board for NME in Long Acre. I still have review copies of albums from the 70s. Nick Kent hosted me at 14 I think with my younger brother for an all dayer at Alexandra Palace. A nice bloke.
