  1. Just in case anyone is a veteran...you get a nice discount on Tidal. Sent from my SM-G985F using Tapatalk
  2. Yes the i7 is windows 10... I also use it occasionally for Photoshop...hencewhy I was wondering if the i3 would be e ough on Manjaro Linux.If not I will buy a other i7 NUC in the spring for Rock. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  3. I agree 100% with your comments, and I am glad you clarified. I am running Roon on win 10 (which I hate with a passion). I also have Linux Manjaro on a i3 NUC...would that be good enough for Roon? I use a ssd on a USB3 dongle(?),foer all my music and a MSATA Drive inside the NUC. I urr3 tlyplay music through Roon via my Yamaha cxa5100 via Music cast or directly to my tablet when I use headphones. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  4. Not meaning to argue, but doesn't the Lumin app run on a computer? Now if you mean a desktop computer, I can understand that is no longer needed since computers are much smaller now, and come in many forms..like tablets, and even cell phones. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  5. Roon requires a computer...I was under the impression that media players are basically a computer too. What is the difference besides price, and shielding for noise? I run a i7 NUC for Roon which is still a computer. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  6. Looks great! I currently have my center sitting on a furniture dolly until I make a stand for it so I can angle it up to the mlp. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  7. I was listening to music when I heard the thud...it was not a loud thud as I was listening at 90db or less. This is what I found... I am not driving the speakers hard at all. I am just worried that when I install the woofers there is only a fingernail of clearance and that leaves me almost zero clearance. With such a small amount of clearance it would not take much for them to hit. I have read where others have installed woofer rings with these woofers, and also some that have not. I want to be sure that when these ara fully tuned, I will not have any problems. As far as the thud I only know it is coming from the woofers. If I push on the woofer they do have some movement, but I have no idea how much they are moving when I hear the thud sound. If I stick my finger in the port the woofer is hardly moving at all.

  8. I looked at the specs for my Kappa 15c woofers and saw that they can move almost 1/2" at the lower frequencies. I have noticed sometimes a thud sound, so I have wondered for a while if they might be hitting since when I i stall them the gasket compresses to where there is about a finger nail gap between the mounting board and the basket. I am going to use some 12mm mdf for rings and install them on the center channel to see if the thud sound still happens. Now this thud is not when listening loud at all...it is when l8stening at -40 to -50 on my Yamaha which when using my phone spl meter is below 90db(midrange and above reading). Are the 1/2" woofer rings going to affect anything besides the delays? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  9. I got roon a couple of months ago, and I love it! Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  10. Just trying to figure out if I should stick with the Kappas for the surrounds. The next pair will be made out of bendable plywood and mdf...modeled off of the short side of the k402. This will allow for a 25" square cabinet for use as surrounds. They will be smaller than a LaScala. If I am successful I will send all the info to you for suggestions for woofer size and port size. I am not sure if a 25x25x18 cabinet is big enough volume waize for 2 15s...maybe I need 4 10s? Sent from my SM-G985F using Tapatalk
  11. Center channel cabinet arrived today, and it looks the best of the 3...proves that the more you do the better they come out! I will start assembly tomorrow, and then hopefully next weekend install it in the rack (I am waiting on the casters for the rack so I can install the center in place). Pics are of the center channel on its side. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  12. Do your woofers go lower than the Kappa15Cs? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  13. Do a search online...there are sites you can up,oad your image to and then resize, and downooad again for free Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  14. Is it an optical allusion or is the left channel sticking out more from the wall than the right? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  15. Thank you! Now I know it will work out nicely. I should have my center by next week...just waiting on the casters to raise the rack up 6 more inches. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  16. I have a little dilemma... I was going to put the center k402 on top of my 29" tall rack (sideways), but then my 86" tv would have to go on top of it. The tv looks like it is at a perfect height on top of the rack. I think I can rearrange the equipment and put the k402 in the center angled upward... Has anyone any experience with the speaker being on the ground, and angled up toward the mlp vor the center? Our MLP is about 12' from the rack front. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  17. Please let me know how it goes... I will be ready to do mine after the first of the year, when I get my 2nd amp ready. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  18. New case arrived... I decided to save about $100 and not get the handles. I think I like the one piece faceplate better than the 2 piece one too. The new amp will also have 3 power buttons, and the grooves to match the 1st amp. The 2nd amp will be for 4 Atmos channels, and 4 surrounds....with the surrounds being bi-amped using a pair of MiniDSP 2x4HD crossovers in the amp too. The new amp will have 6 asx125 modules, but all will be in stereo mode. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  19. I know you said no k402, but....mine takes up no more floor space than your Lascalas, and could replace them...if you like to build your own. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  20. I bought my 1st Gyrodec for $500 from aguy that worked as atech in a Highend stereo snop...good luck finding one for under $1know. I picked up a Pro Ject RPM Carbon with a Sumiko cartridge for $500 new a couple ofyears ago....great setup IMO for a beginning setup. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  21. A friend of mine is using a Minidsp 2x4 on his La Scalas, and he likes them much better now. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  22. Dave, I wish you would have posted this a couple months back... I was going to toss mine last year, and a coupke of months ago one of out pr friends said he would find a use for it. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  23. I have some Roxul r60 rockboard too...I guess 8 could measure and then put it in the cabinet, but I wonter about it chunking and landing inthe woofer baskets. Are you going to cover it with AT fabric or something too? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  24. I have not stuffed my cabinets yet. On the first one I used a dynamat type marerial and a soundproof material. On the 2nd one I have only placed a few squares of the soundproof material, and in the one that is in the shop the cabinet is being made thicker, and will be a rectangle the same size as the horn when viewed from the front. This will be the center channel, and will be on top of my 90" wide AV rack. The center will be laying like most people have their k402s...not like my left and right which are vertical. I am going to be trying some sheep wool on the center channel, and also I am going to try some bracing inside all of the cabinets. Now on the first one the bass is about 5db more than on the one with only a few pieces of soundproof material inside. We will see how the center is since it will be 9" shorter, but also a full rectangle... the left and right have angled sides going from 24" to 12". How high are your stands? I am thinking of making some stands to bring the left and right channels up to the the height of the center channel, or angling them (not sure if I can angle enough without becoming unstable). I will be trying some diy stands that will match the height of the center channel on the AV rack. I am doing this because my left and right channels are too low with our current seating, and most likely our new seating will be at least the height we are currently using. I am also curious how raising the speakers will effect the bass...right now, the bottom of the horn is 9" off the floor, and the speakers are within 2' of the rear wall, and side walls (corners). Even though mine are not tuned completely yet due to us stopping when we had problems with consistent measurements, and my changing of the gain measurements on the amps (to try and get the levels were we wanted them). Now I have Icepower amp modules with no gain controls and we are ready to proceed when Chris is ready. I think he is waiting until we get the center completed so we can do them all at once...which is fine with me. I have to say that last night I listened to some master recordings on Tidal and I was very impressed as to how good they sound, and cannot even imagine how much more revealing they will be once we have them fully tuned.

  25. Here is the right channel with grill. With camera flash you can see the magnets, but in the daylight you cannot. The left channel has the magnets painted as will the center when it is completed. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
