  1. Hello, When I think book shelf speakers, I have thought that the designated speaker stand from the same brand performs the best for a speaker. For example, Focal Utopia Bookshelf - Focal Speaker Stand for this model. Today I happened to have a conversation about this, and heard that as long as you use reasonably high quality/heavy stand (for example, Solid Steel Speaker Stand about 30lbs), there would be NO sound quality difference compared to using the designated speaker stand. For speaker stands, benefits of designated speaker stands are 1) Aesthetic 2) Can be connected to t
  2. Hello, I’ve been considering Qobuz Download Store to purchase music digitally. As a classical music listener, I find Qobuz’s selection is wide and updated well. Here are couple points that I perceive as Pros / Cons. - Pros 1) If I subscribe its Studio Sublime ($21/mon), Qobuz offers discount(usually 50%) on Hi-Res albums. After discount, purchase makes financial sense compared to buy CDs from Amazon with discounted $. 2) As far as I understand (at this point) I can choose quality / format of download. This appeals to me. I want to download files as Aiff, and so far this is
  3. Actually it’s kind of interesting because it seems there are two school of thoughts? one says at least 3 ft apart and the other says from 3ft - 7ft is the distance that you should avoid. (Farer is better) Two completely contradict ideas.
  4. According to the article, there are 3 ways. The best is putting in the wall. Second best is putting close. Isn’t what professional studios do?
  5. Hello, I happen to find an good article about the ideal speaker placement. (Easiest version without numbers & formulas that I can’t honestly understand :D) I’d like to share. Personally I find two things interesting. 1) Only use 40% of the room area (38% rule) 2) Put the speaker as close as possible to the back-wall (next to bass trap) Of course, minor adjustment would be required depending on speakers. Still, I think this is helpful to figure out the very first step. http://arqen.com/acoustics-101/room-setup-speaker-placement/ https://realtraps.com/art_room-s
  6. That makes sense. When manufacturer puts the same price, I honestly think overall performance capacity is almost same, but depending on where I’d like to focus on more. One of the very difficult decision. Personally I really don’t like when very good speakers miss 25hz-30hz range. (My obsession with piano sound.)
  7. I don’t need bass that what people usually talk about. I only hear classic and jazz. The tricky part is, piano sound needs lower frequency requiring bass support. Without bass support, many speakers, I often experience a piano performer’s left hand is suddenly becoming missing when a performer plays low parts. (I can only hear right hand playing part, and left hand sound becoming too thin or vague.) - This is why piano is hard. (technically pipe organ is the worst, extremely demanding, but I can live without this, at least.) Still well made speake
  8. Yes that’s a great option too. Honestly, if this brand made the sub by itself, then the choice would be easier. Still if they made one in the future, with the total cost, I would be able to get a bigger model that doesn’t need a sub with overall better performance. ;) I think it’s like choosing options for a car. If you could afford one, then everything. But this speaker is already seriously over spending compared to my initial budge. So Decision, decision.
  9. Thank you. Yes, it’s a tough one. (Unless I had tons of money. ;) - not happening) Technically my curiosity is how different frequency spec would affect in the long term though I know it’s just number and actual sound may vary. - Especially Classical music / piano sound that I’m fond of the most. Parker duo (36-40khz) +-2db Oscar trio (27-20khz) +- 3db Lower bass part puzzles me. Parker duo is better made overall and has a higher coverage. But Oscar has pretty decent 27hz lower coverage. Technical range of Piano starts from 27.5hz(some is
  10. How about Piano? In general or in theory? It would be difficult to listen both as A/B, yet I’ll do my best. New year’s big plan.
  11. Thank you for the advice. Perfectly nailed it, and that’s actually why I have a trouble choosing one. I’m curious what advantage (FS’s more bass or BS’s better image) will be usually satisfactory in the long term. I exclusively listen to Classical Music (especially Piano) and some Piano Jazz (Bill evans). Does Piano, in general, require more bass and dynamics? Below 40hz?
  12. Hello, I’d like to ask your general opinion and experience. Of course, I plan to hear (if possible) both to make the final call, but would like to know possible long-term experience. A room is about 14ft x 13ft, a dedicated listening room with couple acoustic panels. My question is, (specifically or generally) - Floor stand speaker vs A book shelf type speaker from the upper line up What would be the better choice? Technically, the bookshelf would provide enough sound for a room, and it’s from the upper line up, so I think this might be the optimized solution. At
  13. Hello, I’m very interested in Boulder 866, and found the review. - Comparison set up would be Pass Int60 + Bryston BDA 3.14 1) Devialet 2) darTZeel LHC-208 3) Boulder 866 My first interest is Boulder 866 because it’s from the US. (I live in the US, so expect to be easy to fix or do something). My questions are, 1) How’s your impression? (Especially compared to Pass, Devialet and dartzeel) Not just better/worse, but how’s different? 2) Do you experience any technical glitch? (In terms of touch screen, wireless
