  1. Look like Dynaudio drivers, with time alignment in the design.. Very nice.
  2. I've used sorbothane it's been around for a long time and well accepted.. Found these to be a more audible improvement. http://brightstaraudio.com/
  3. This is available if you want tube distortion. Its all in the input that determines the flavour of the class D Purifi modules.. Manufactures that don't address this are not serious players. https://atm-audio.com/class-d-amplifier/ https://vtvamplifier.com/product/vtv-amplifier-monoblock-purifi-audio-1et400a-amplifier-with-vtv-vacuum-tube-buffer/
  4. There was some talk as to who could use the "felt" Dunlavy believed he had a patent. Guess improving speaker performance won at the end of that.. Vafiadis hired an ex Duntech designer some 10 years ago. Simon Wilde has designed all speakers since when the Vaf Signature Series became Mark 11. No harm done in contacting them for what suits your room. Your amp looks very nice.
  5. All the amps I've owned have worked very well, the speakers are quite an easy load and reasonably efficient. I'm currently using VTV's take on the Purifi amp modules with the VTV input boards and Sparkos opamps. Listeners have commented there is a touch of valve sweetness to the sound. Never noticed bright sound except on some badly mastered media.
  6. I've owned Vaf I66 for the last 10 years. Have changed amps 3 times and the improvements were very worthwhile. The only other speakers that I thought sounded so right were some similarly sized Khama speakers but were 3 times the cost.
  7. My thoughts are, have a look @legend speakers, perhaps the Small Reds. Dr. Rod has been designing/ manufacturing active speakers for over 20 years.
  8. Further information: Purchased from authorised Nad reseller in June 2020. Used on my desktop to drive Vaf I91's. Work perfectly with no issues. Comes with everything supplied by dealer. I'm moving to another office and need to use headphones. Many reviews online, one example. https://www.soundstagesimplifi.com/index.php/equipment-reviews/11-nad-c368-dac-integrated-amplifier Photos: PLEASE READ If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved You understand that a reasonable donation for selling fees is expected upon successful sale of your item - if you have previously sold items and not made a donation, your advertisement may not be approved.

  10. Thats a nice list of speakers. I've heard 3 of them. I would go for Legend Kurre with a Keces E40 intergrated. 3k all up, new with warranty. You will need to add stands. If you went Legend Kama no stands and similar footprint.
  11. I can see 2 USB ports facing the hard drive. I have a Nuc and heard a difference between USB 2 and 3. Mine are external. Roon were considering offering a linear power supply when they launched. Guess that would have increased the cost significantly. I found a substantial improvement with a linear power supply, but cost more than the Nuc. YMMV Still cheaper than a Roon box.
  12. Really good to see another system being put together. I think you will be happy with the March Purifi monos hooked up to your I93's. Likely give some Magicos a fright. Nad licence the tech from Purifi and develop their own modules and power supplies. Others like VTV, ATM, Nord, March etc buy modules and power supplies are assemblers with the case being different. Really like the ATM version. Have you considered the DEQX PreMate + as a pre, it does streaming, has very adequate Dac and does room correction and sub integration.
  13. Use Big Flat Gliders under 60kg speakers and 60 kg subs. Makes moving easy, certainly eliminated the resonances of having subs on wooden floor. Haven't tried the Bunnings furniture sliders.
  14. You could avoid all the expectation and delays and buy Big or Small Red Red Actives from Dr Rod. Cheaper and better I would suspect. Just My 2cents worth.
  15. The main consideration is your 5x10 room. That's big. You need speakers that move a lot of air. The March amp suggested above should drive these to satisfying levels for your music preferences.
