  1. That’s encouraging.. there’s a YouTube review with a H590 that’s really positive. I’M presuming the isotek is quite a lot a more $$ ?- what did the isotek do for you?
  2. @Hydrology have you tried this unit? Or know someone who has? Yes it says 150watt 2ch max. My amp is around 70watts per ch 8 ohm.
  3. I agree, re-hype and cautions re online opinions and reviews, couldn’t cover every aspect of my thinking in original post. Interesting comment on overvoltage, I consistently have greater than 230v here. Currently 235v.
  4. Reason I was asking as I have a humming Naim transformer and cannot trace the cause, separate power line. I looked at review of audiolab dc blocker from dealer on YouTube and was suggested it led to improved sq too. So at $229, I thought even sq improvement without stopping hum might be good.
  5. Thanks for your comments gentlemen. Reason I was asking as I have a humming Naim transformer and cannot trace the cause, separate power line. I looked at review of audiolab dc blocker from dealer on YouTube and was suggested it led to improved sq too. So at $229, I thought even sq improvement without stopping hum might be good. Paul McGowan from PSaudio commented that he found conditioners seemed to have a positive effect at first for him but robbed the sound of its “live feel” and he went back to socket only. I know the real answer is to try/listen myself and am searching for a means of doing that or finding a seller with a good returns policy.
  6. Andy, sorry it was a spell correct, I’ve edited the original post.
  7. I am Looking at an ifi DC blocker or audio lab DC block unit. I’ve read that power conditioners are felt by many to negatively affect the liveliness Of recordings. I don’t want to get into a debate about PC or not but are DC blockers less intrusive in this regard, anyone with listening experience? Have you tried either of these new and cheap dc blocking units?
  8. I’d like to log interest to buy if Jack changes his mind. Am in Melbourne.
  9. Any comments on the characteristic sound of these? is there a dealer in Melbourne or a way to audition?
  10. Thanks @doogie44 for your comprehensive reply.
  11. Thanks Andy. Regarding non-critical / ambience (out of room) listening are they unlistenable parked next or close to the wall? m
  12. Thanks @andyr I was thinking the same re: 1.7 demo. I’ve read a lot on amplification for these speakers- there seem to be lots of opinions as usual, but consensus..LOTS of current. I currently use a Naim NAP250 (75 watts into 8 ohms) aA number of reviews have commented that 50w Naim drives LRS very well and NAP200 Drives 1.6 well. Think I will just need to try it out. BTW most of my listening is low to moderate volumes.- 4 year old twins at home. How have you found the lower listening levels? I have a medium sized REL sub which is like to augment the bass with.
