  1. Now that I got just the 301s setup and with the right amount of toe in and up slightly it sounds pretty good. Really good sound stage. Just waiting on some b&c10s with Dave’s Mach horn now. Might do ALK crossovers also. Now that I know what really stereo image sounds like with really good speakers my 2017 Chevy trucks sound system sounds like garbage lol which sucks cause last week I thought I was pretty good. O well
  2. That goes into the kitchen. It’s a L shaped room behind me . From the wall in the pic behind the stereo to the wall behind me is 20’. There’s a short 2’ wall to my right. Just a lil corner wall but only 2’ wide.
  3. I did some listening with the kgs off and on with the same song “terrapin station” which has really good stereo image sounds same left right center and kgs do muddy up the sound a lil and kinda seams to shift the vocals and Jerry Garcia’s gutair from center to a lil left. So I’ll put those in the garage. I have the 301s on landscape block with a piece of 2” thick 24”x24” granite to raise them about 13 “. The speakers are 8’ apart with toe in to bring the triangle point to my couch dead center but 2’ ahead of it. Does the raspberry or blue sound have s/pdif connectors . Or is there a adapter cord I gotta get. What is the difference with usb vs those. I’ve read about better usb cables with the power line inside isolated from the rest. What is s/pdif Mainly used for.
  4. Its the DacMagic 100. do you know of any of the software programs you can buy will help the laptop. Something like roon or audiovarn.
  5. I set the sound settings in the laptop for the dac at 192/24 which is the 3.0 USB port the blue one. All that Deezer says about there HiFi is that it’s 1411 kb/s what is what lol what is the difference between the 2 one is kilobits and the other is ?
  6. Yea I live in Iowa so no earthquakes lol mostly dead and company concert posters Me and my wife been to and Larry zack wildlife prints. I got a couch dead center of the listening position. Gonna order the MAHL 1 tweeter drop inns the guy on here builds with the machined aluminum horns
  7. Yea the cat needs to skip a few meals. I’ve been looking at doing the diy rca cables the use the .999% silver 28 gauge wire along with Teflon 1/4” air line tubing for the dielectric cover. I got everything but the rca ends and silver wire. I’m a pipe fitter by trade so I can get whatever material tubing. Supposed to be comparable to some higher end rcas. I got 5$ Walmart’s right now. It was middle of the night gotta hook up this dac now thing lol
  8. It’s streaming at 192/24 bit. I had to download the DacMagic usb 3.0 drive and then switch it from 16 to 24 bit 192. That took a lil bit of looking in the sound settings on the laptop. I had the usb on the 1.0 slot not the blue one for 3.0. That did make a lil difference. Deezer does stream at 1411 kbps it says its supposed to be at least. I paid for the HiFi desktop app.
  9. I just got them wired up this weekend I’m gonna drill through the floor nd run the wires in the basement. It was just a temp setup to see if I could get good soundstage with them in the corners
  10. Do u have some for sale for kp301
  11. WiFi router to laptop dongle then laptop usb 3.0 port the blue one? I downloaded the 3.0 USB port software from Cambridge so it would stream at 192 24 bit. Then from the dac to the receiver with cheap rca cables I had laying around I know I need to some better ones. Then just audio input on the receiver. I do have good WiFi reception I can stream us movies with no pauses. I’m just kinda lost in the whole music player software you can buy like roon or audiovarna to help with the audios path through the laptop. When I added the dac it did get rid of a lot of background noise. Does isolating the receiver with rollerblocks help. What about actually pulling out the transformer and isolating it by itself outside the machine.
  12. The eq is turned off. I don’t use it much anymore except when I’m streaming movies on sites that have bad audio. The kg5.5 are nowhere near as efficient as the 301s. They don’t add much to the sound when I have them on. Maybe a lil more fuller? Not sure how to explain it.
  13. I’m just trying to still figure out all the internet streaming stuff. How to get the best sound. I have a Cambridge DacMagic 100 2 kp301 “same as Cornwall “? 2 kg5.5 inverted and on top of 301s. A Sansui g7700 receiver. Cheap rca cables but decent speaker wire I got from work it’s twisted double shelded 16gauge oxygen free low voltage signal wire. Just wanted some one else’s ideas on speaker placement and maybe some more electronics to help the sound. Like do I need a external clock for streaming to help with better stereo/image or does the DacMagic have a good enough one. Does the router brand matter or what WiFi dongle I have. I use Deezer mostly. Grateful Dead music and jazz. I know most of the recordings arnt that great. Any help would be awsome. Thanks
