The problem, Dominic, is the lack of an absolute standard. Even manufacturers tend to have different preferences in their calibration.  
 
Does it sound similar, incidentally, to the problem we have with audio systems?

C-fu,  
 
I like the last one for me on a Mac Book. The newest one is just a bit warmer.  
Of course I am no color expert ...

Three of my mons all indicate a bluish color cast on the picture and since I do not have a reliable calibration standard at hand, I have it corrected by adding a bit of yellow tint and see how it goes with others' color monitor.  
 
Which picture looks more right with your mon, this or the previous one?

A cutting block in place of the stack of books makes placement fine tuning easier and at the same time raising the speaker by 1 inch.

Morning crymen,  
 
I do not play with interconnects as my system is not very sensitive to cable changes. Any brand of co-axial with shiny copper should be okay with me. If I remember correctly, the 3 meter main interconnect cost me something like 300 bucks back in the 90's and there it has remained until now.

Hi Limage, I recently relocated my gear in a similar setup with only the power amp at the speaker's side. The interconnect became very long, what low cost brand/model would you recommend so as to save me from bankruptcy?

But we all know his system then was by no means optimized and the conclusions so drawn were rather questionable. If we ask him now, I'm sure he would have a very different answer!  
 
Well I guess this is commonplace especially among audiophiles. How many times have we revoked our words while searching for the truth?

' My pre-amp to power amp coaxial and speaker cables are both 3  
meters in length. These lengths are well within safe margin '  
 
Some may not agree.

Instead of having electronics cluttering up behind the speakers like most audio set ups nowadays  
should look, this layout provides a convenient alternative where all controls are at arm's length.  
 
One major reason for the electronics to line up on the far end of the room is to keep all inter-  
connects at the shortest length possible. The only drawback with my layout is the need to run  
slightly longer cables. My pre-amp to power amp coaxial and speaker cables are both 3  
meters in length. These lengths are well within safe margin and I am sure there is absolutely  
no risk of sonic degradation. For those who use balance in-outs, cable length shouldn't even  
be an issue at all.  
 
In return you don't have to walk a mile to change a CD nor have to use a telescope to make sure  
the volume stays at exactly the right level for the best of sonic results.

Yes Richard, if the choice is between 3.7 and 3.6 since diyers cannot repair the 3.7 quasi-ribbon bass driver by themselves.

Was that said MG3.6 was preferred to 3.7 for the former's easy maintenance?

Thank you limage. I was considering speakers between the Harbeth and the Magnepan which I like both for different reasons. I finally made up my mind of going after Maggies then I saw your change and was wondering if BBC monitors were superior to MG.  
 
I am more relief now and will continue with my journey with MG. Happy listening :-)

The Maggies and the BCIII are speakers of very diverse design and yet both can project very accurate and realistic music reproduction. While the Magnepan excels in both frequency extremes, in particular, the mid-bass area where she has no peers absolutely, the BC III leaves you in romantic bliss with her irresistible mid range bouquet.  
 
The pity is, I cannot have the best of both worlds at the same time and as such, I would have to live with both while they take turns to have me served.

Hi limage  
 
I recently sold my old speaker and is planning to get a pair of MG3.7. When I came up here to re-visit your suggestions of using Maggies, then I realised you switched to a pair of BBC monitor. Could you share the reason(s) of such move?

Found an old photo of the Podium .5 MkI.The Podiums have no crossovers (probably the only horn-dipole panels in the world). At 95 dB, they are not difficult to drive and tube friendly even south of 20 watts!!

Bigchan & davidchan taking a good look at Rlau’s incredibly complex toys: a seven way active X’over horn/woofer system. The room has been meticulously fitted out and sonic performance is exemplary.

I am still looking for the proper stand. The one now is for the BC1 which is 1/3 smaller. The rollers enable the monitor to be used around the studio when required.  
 
For home use, rollers are not appropriate since placement, once determined, should not be easily disturbed. Books underneath help to keep the speaker in position without any hassle. Original BC III stands also come with rollers and they are rarely available now. I think I’d have to tailor make one.

In terms of Chassis construction or in a beauty contest. I have a feeling that many modern 21st century designs are way more impressive than their 80s or 90s sisters.  
 
For circuit innovations. I prefer bobui DIY! Ah AH!  
 
For power to a dollar. 21st century amps just doesnt seems to make much sense to me. When you start adding all these little gagets such as digital display screen, hype internet link, remote volume, self shut down device, outerspace shielding materials, 999.9% carat gold cap in a gel tube the size of your arm.....etc etc. There simply cannot be any justice on where you money spend at.

The Premier One was once a super amp with 12 output tubes plus a staggering body weight of 130 lbs. Now it's relegated probably to the flea level against modern behemoth of no less than 300 lbs per mono block.

>I judge an amp by its number of valves and size of the transformers. so, whats the sort of numbers and measurement are we talking about here? <  
____________________________  
 
Number of valves, only output valves, of course, are counted by the dozens!  
 
Size of transformers, that is a bit hard to tell, so I usually go by the weight of the amp!100 lbs is pretty much the minimum lor!
