Re: Which App ? (Streaming + Local)

David Neel wrote: 2024-02-20 14:39 Spannko, I suggest you try adding a GS108T (or 308). I've just tried going direct from my 4G router (Huawei B535-333) and quickly re-inserted a GS108T. It will be interesting to see if your 4G router produces a different result...
I think I have a spare GS108T I could lend for tests

Re: Boazu vs Tundra 2.2 (with various preamps)

For clarification, I've never removed the upper volume limit when listening to Boazu, so my comment relates to listening up to the 'child safety' limit.

Re: Boazu vs Tundra 2.2 (with various preamps)

I found with Hakai as source that it could get a bit raw when I turned the volume up to max, so I suspect what you're hearing is the limitations of the source, not the amplification.

Re: Boazu vs Tundra 2.2 (with various preamps)

With Källa or Axis as source I can take Boazu as loud as it will go and there's no loss of magic. If anything, it just gets better as it gets louder.

Re: Is the Netgear GS 108 Safe?

It's very important to secure the internet router and gateway. Make sure that you have changed the administrator password and the firmware is up to date. Make sure at all your WiFi access points are secured with non default passwords and the most secure authorisation that your router supports. Disab...

Re: Is the Netgear GS 108 Safe?

I couldn't find any posts regarding Netgear GS108T.

Even if it does have security flaws, it's not going to create security weaknesses for those of us using it with an internet router, since the internet router provides the defenses against external attack, not the Netgear.

Re: Pete's System

Some time ago I noticed that the K400 'jumpers' I was using in addition to the connecting plates to connect the three pairs of passive drive inputs on my Espeks were fraying. I removed them for inspection and they pretty well fell apart. I replaced the plates without the K400 and it was immediately ...

Re: Playground for practical listening exercises

Do you have the speakers on the long wall? My room is a complex shape as the whole floor is open plan. The wall behind the speakers is recessed by about 60cm. This was designed to reduce the intrusion into the room of the speakers. This wall is shorter than the distance to the facing wall. However,...

Yes. I need to let go of my rather abstract desire to lock the speakers in place - they are still perfectly enjoyable despite a little bit of wobblyness.

Re: Pete's System

Can you mount the TV on the wall? Covering with a thick blanket should also improve music listening - certainly works for the radiator in my office.

Forgot to mention that I think your system sounds great without sound absorbers. Maybe you should just leave it as it is. :-) Thanks!

Thanks everyone for your help and kind comments. My wife and cat also prefer without!

Has anyone experimented with room treatments to improve their system? At the weekend I serendipitously found myself with spare rockwool insulation and two 75cm x 100cm unwanted picture canvases. It took about 5 minutes to stuff the frames with 5cm thick rockwool and place them behind the speakers to...
