  1. They aren't mine. I was offering to house them for anyone who purchased them if they were coming from afar.

  3. I now have 2 powervar Powe conditioners/isolation transformers now. Would you still suggest this tripplite iso bar knowing that I have these?

  5. Did you build it yourself or have it built?
  6. Ima bout to head out from home for 3 weeks. If someone is on the fence make me an offer and let’s get this fantastic DAC sold before Wednesday. 😁
  7. I often use my amp thats a SET and 1.8 watts per channel, through my La Scalas, with all different types of music and it sounds fantastic. I typically listen around 70-75db.
  8. I listened again last night with my sub on and the thing I have noticed is that with the ported mod the sound is cleaner. The bass seems less boomy and more real where sound is concerned. It doesn't hit you like at a concert, but it feels like it rounds the sound out in a very nice way. I will mess around some more with tuning after we get back from our trip, but I can say, I'm no longer disappointed that I built this. Its a nice addition to the system at this juncture and I will tune the ports a little more when I get back to see if I can gain just that last little bit that the DATS v3 curves are showing me I can get.
  9. Finally some semblance of order in my room. Got the component racks finished and in place last night. Fun fun!

  11. I will try that. I also borrowed a Dats V3 to take some measurements and the have a person local who will help me interpret the results and make adjustments if need be. So, I'm getting help on many fronts. Thanks all!
  12. Flipped them and while better it still lacks the "feel" of the bass. It seems to dig a little deeper in comparison to front facing, but still not going low to where in some songs I feel the artist is super close to me and real. I can see if one was really trying to limit components in the chain for "purity", using this, but if you want to feel it, it's not quite there. I would add that there is a cleanness to the music and bass, just lacking in oomph and that feeling that the music is surrounding you.
  13. Okay, cool. I will try this tonight. My Initial impressions are that it certianly adds bass and downlow to the La Scalas. Does it beat my current Velodyne ULD-15 sub? Sorta. The ported mod doesn't hit as hard nor does it dig as deep to hear the gravely voice of the great Guy Clark in the song The Dark for example, but it certainly does more than the speakers by themselves. What it doesn't do is add addtional noise to the system like the mechanical hum that comes from the Velodyne. Which is a plus!! It does help imaging though and centers the vocals as well as helps to create that space between the instruments in physical space. Maybe this is just because the speakers are taller and the mid horn is more level or even a bit higher than ear height when sitting in my chair? I can likely flip them around tonight and have another listen.
  14. Attached is the the photo that you sent I cut the doghouse in the trapezoidal shape like in the picture. Not a square.
  15. But what about the doghouse cutout not matching correctly with flipping them around? Is that a concern?
  16. If I do that doghouse won't line up. I dunno if that's a problem or not.
  17. Set them in place last night. Didn't get time to listen to them though.... Soon.
  18. Altmann Attraction DAC. This model has every option available. S/PDIF, toslink, rca, switable sample rate and jisco function. To purchase it new would cost over $5k today. I also have a smaller format duracell batter and charger that comes with the sale. I will have to ship ground with the battery, but its much better to use this smaller battery, instead of having a HUGE Optima battery in your room. Charles himself said this battery is a fine paring with the DAC. I've had this DAC for sometime now and enjoy it alot, but as digitial music goes, the tinkering never seems to end, so this is going to fund other DAC purchases. At my full price I will absorb PP and shipping in the CONUS. Happy to ship wherever, just reach out if you have somewhere else you like this to land. $800 obo
  19. So the question I have is while the THLP creates big bass, I’m using this for music only listening, so I’m really trying to hear all of the music instead of trying to feel a big amount of bass hit me and shake the whole house. Will the THLP do the former, the latter or both?
