Your Sound Equipment

Recommended Posts

Furthermore good quality speaker stands can isolate vibrations from speaker cabs. Best soundstage comes from speakers at the proper listening height and then playing around with positioning. Bringing them out from the wall and having very little stuff between them is best but not always practical.

 

well said, which is was trying to :cheers:

 

@OP

good set of spikes counts too :)

A little fun had with my cables much more manageable now that they aren't 3 and 6m long
 

 

 

That ain't a half bad idea. I hope to do a mod to my q701s to turn them into balanced headphones. I am putting together a tube amp with someone, and I am working on making it balanced as well, so we will see how that goes, but I do like that idea. Did it change the audio quality at all? I heard from a couple of people that you want as little twists and turns as possible in your cord.

The cord is so well insulated that I noticed no audible difference since I did this. I have spent hours listening to music (being sick gives you shit all else to do) was listening and swapping between the cable that was braided and the one that wasn't and after hearing no difference I went ahead and braided the second cable.

Just finished mine. I compared the shorter and longer version before braiding and they sounded identical. After braiding, I notice  that percussion sounds a bit more tight. The difference is so minute that it is just enough to actually hear, but noting that would change the listening experience.

I've packed away my Cyber Acoustics CA-3602, rarely used them . They took so much space for something so useless (to me)

So just the Plantronic 367 headset + inbuilt speakers on my VK278Q
