    New Speakers

    I got sick of listening to the crappy sound emanating from my PC, so I bit the bullet and bought some new beauties.

    I've got a couple of sound systems, one predominantly for home theatre incorporating B&W 683 speakers, with Marantz processor, Emotiva power amp and so on.
    My workshop system is pretty stonking too and I just added a Project carbon Turntable to that system.

    It was my PC system that was letting me down, so I've added these Mini+
    They are freaking awesome and would stand up against almost any HiFi bookshelf speakers.

    I can't believe the sound I'm getting out of theses speakers. They really are the bees knees, and believe me I've got a fair few $ in HiFi gear !!

    Well done. They look good, I'd like to get a listen. I got these last year for my laptop, good speakers also, I only ever have them up to 4 and they fill the room nicely

    Behringer: DIGITAL MONITOR SPEAKERS MS40


    A great investment, a lot better than normal PC monitor speakers.

    The links not working PadMC, but I googled them and they look pretty good.

    I got the Actimates at a good discount due to them being ex display units and they came with a bonus tangent Bluetooth dock converter.

    I'll raise the speakers up about 6" on some timber - After I've added it to the list of jobs !!

    I'll put a pic up of the Home Theatre set up, when I get around to it.

    Maybe we should have a "show us your gear" thread = 555

    Wow, these things kick ass.

    I just cranked them a tad, coz they're almost fully run in now. They are way better than I expected.
    They fill a medium sized room with ease - and poise........
    Oh yeah, did I mention they are heavy -12Kgs and the finish is way better in real life.

    If I had the choice I would have grabbed them in black, but I got them at a very good price, so as they say.........

    Might even try and grab another pair to give our daughter as part of a 21st surprise in January !!
