    A couple of new amps to play with.
    Both excellent if with rather different capabilities.

    Does it sound similar to the KAV250a Jerry? I sometimes regretted moving that on until I got the Luxman.

    I'm a big fan of the 250a as well.
    A bit bright imo, but hugely entertaining.

    The 400xi has only been here a few hours so I am still only starting to settle in with it.
    But I would say it's much nearer neutral tonally while still being very vivid and lucid.
    The Crayon amp pips it for 3D staging, but doesn't have the dynamic scale of the Krell [which has over 10x the power].

    Now in their 10th year, I thought that my MBL speakers deserved a bit of a treat.

    Rather than pay audiophile prices I looked at what the pro market had to offer, and that led me to Auralex speaker platforms, specifically their Propad XL, which just happens to be the right size.
    They're a 3 layer arrangement - foam/MDF/rubber and the mounted speaker wobbles around a bit when gently prodded. -- and I placed a sheet of cardboard underneath to allow them to be slid around without too much hassle (how's that for thinking ahead!).



    I wasn't looking forward to putting the 45Kg speakers on to them, but it turned out to be not much bother at all.



    Really pleased, obvious improvement immediately compared to the granite slabs they had previously stood on.
    I thought the sound was nicely detached from the speakers before. Well, this shows that there is always room for improvement!
    And everything is more vivid and present.
    And the soundstage / imaging. Woof!

    Happy 10th Year, to my MBLs.
