Re: Moving from 5.1 to 4.1 2x6spds 05/29/20 12:13 AM
Hello Tex

This is the first time I've listened to a movie on the system with the M2OWs. Sounded great, but I have not wrung them out yet. Probably gonna wait until the system is complete.

A tremendous gust of wind blew our beer, wine and assorted cheeses and crackers all over the deck! But my fabulous Freedom facilely flaunted ferocious firmness in the face of frightful ferment.

Yeah, I really don't know how they do that for entire shows, even with breaks. I guess being young helps.

MatMan, you can get a reasonable phono preamp for small money ...
IMO there is really no reason that you need to spend more than $50 ... and not even that ...
So don't let your receiver get in the way.

I bought mine for less than $15

BTW ... For those DIY'ers it's a great first project ... as it's really just a few op-amps <for gain & RIAA filter (if not passive)>, their support components, and of course the power adapter. You won't save money but it might be fun ...

Its like a fantastic line from Douglas Adams..

it's times like this that I wish I had listened to what my mother told me when I was young.

What did she say?

I don't know, I never listened.

Re: The LFR 1100 Actives Have Landed korkster 05/26/20 08:12 PM
Well, last week we reached the point of no return with the LFR 1100 Actives, literally, as my 30 day trial period is over. And I have no intention of sending these back. They have definitely found a home here. Although I have not had as much time with them as I would have liked, I have fallen in love with them. They will not make bad recordings sound better; they are incredibly neutral and accurate. But they will reward you in spades when listening to quality recordings. Incredible detail and clarity, and the bottom end has come around beautifully. I know that there is a lot of debate out there about speaker "burn in," but in this case these things definitely got better in the low end with use. They were incredible in the mids and highs right out of the box,

I recently saw a video with Andrew Jones from ELAC on this topic, and although he is not a big believer in speaker "burn in" (and neither is Ian, btw), Jones does believe that there is some improvement in the low end at the beginning of use as the "spider" moves around a bit and then settles in. This all happens at the start of use and afterwards things don't change much (for instance the 100 hours theory), but the woofers do need to loosen up a bit at first. I don't understand the physics of all this and whether or not it's true for all speakers, but I truly believe in this case, those first hours of use really brought the low end around on the LFR 1100 Actives. Maybe just a placebo effect for me, but the low end is definitely more dynamic and powerful to my ears now than at first. And that "fullness" that I felt was missing a bit is there now. Would I still want a subwoofer(s) for movies, probably. But I am getting everything I want for two channel music listening. I'll leave it up to those who are much more technically knowledgeable to get into the finer details of all this, but as far as I'm concerned, I am a happy camper!

You did good, Ian! And thanks so much for all of the support and assistance during the process. Axiom is an outstanding company! And the M80's that I bought all of those many years ago keep singing away beautifully in my dedicated theater along with the QS-8's, and 10's that were added later. :-) Now what to do with all of that cardboard?

The Outer Banks first season was really good. I have to chuckle at the 20 something actors portraying teenagers. Have you watched Peaky Blinders? It's one of the better series on Netflix.
