Time alignment is not an issue with a Duetta as it is excellent anyway. I do use digital processing in the form of rapidly on-the-fly GUI driven PEQ. In fact I'm cutting the 8-9K region now as I listen by a couple of DB. But it is all done without the A/D D/A intervention i.e. before the digital input hits the DAC. Good I think.

    Those Jantzen inductors use lovely looking copper with silver plated tags. Much better looking than the Monocor ones I am using now. They are also massively larger and heavier than the Monocor for the same inductance (can that really be a good thing?). I've got some pretty huge Mundorfs in the crossovers too but by looks alone the Jantzens look better. Danish quality I guess.

    Will wire the foo up tomoz. I will say though the Monocor stuff is brilliant for the money. Such cheapness actually sounds great right now as I am listening on some of the best speakers I have ever heard LOL.That said I did swap in a couple of original Apogee Ohmites recently to replace a couple of Monocor resistors and they are better. Still they are cheap too.

    Curious as to what will happen with the foo.

    Sorry Jezzer but sure you won't mind too much.

    That said I completely agree the flexibility to mess around with an active solution is unparalled JP.

    And a word to Ali - still have really fond memories of your OBs. Outstanding for the cost. Were you using the MiniDSP then?
    Sorry, missed this, yes was using the 2x4 MiniDSP then. The OB's are now four way and I use the 4x10HD. The speakers now sound considerably better than they did when you heard them.
    There are times when you canít do the sensible thing, when you canít act like a responsible adult at all; you just have to do whatever insane thing comes into your head. When bad people do it they end up murderers, when good people do it they end up heroes, and when the rest of us do it we end up looking like total idiots. But whenís that ever stopped us?

    Looks very cool Jerry.
    Black and blue and broken bones - you left me here - I'm all alone. My little piggy needed something new.

    An all in 1! Whilst the wadia kit sounds damn good I'd be amazed if it betters your puresiund/pass setup.

    New headphones.

    I dearly love the Fostex T50RPiii that Lawrence(001) recommended.
    The best 'phones I had owned, and far from the most expensive.

    So I just couldn't resist when these Fostex Reference 'phones came along.
    Arrived today, and I am deeply in love.
    Hugely immersive, fast and powerful.
