Soprano's (Gangsters in the House)


Recommended Posts

After living with my setup for over 10 years with hardly any changes, I decided the time was right to bring in a few new components.

I found a good home for Sonus Faber's and the mono blocks, cashed up and enthusiastic off I started anew.

Thank you's go out to the following people for sage advice:

Al (bettyboop).

Jason Addicted to Audio.

Geoff Hey Now HiFi.

So the new recruits are:

Focal Sopra 2.

HiFi Rose RS150B.

Mark Levinson ML5805.

Iso Acoustics Gaia 1.

Various Tellurium Q cables.

Very nice well thought out system @illusion! Did you find a noticeable difference using the Gaias over spikes?  I'm tossing to get a set for my speakers.

Thank you Montgomery👍 Having the hardwood floor I never really thought about using the Focal spikes and the puny lil silver disks they sit on.

I saw the Gaias on @evil c speakers and knew they would be best. The way those Gaias stick to the floor is incredible, takes 2 people to prise the  speakers up.

Mine's carpeted, which now has me 🤔 if spikes are the way to go.  Thanks

You can still get the Gaia's as you can get these carpet discs that are spiked for carpets/rugs for the IsoAcoustic Gaia's.

Thank you  Al, the Sopra 2's are really beginning to loosen up, it's almost time to start tinkering with toe in and positioning.

my 3s took well to some toe in 🙂 pretty much pointing at me 🙂 no harm experimenting

Made an addition to the room. The wonderful people at Hawthorn Furniture that made my cabinet some years back, made a record stand to match.

Tasmanian Blackwood never fails to impress, lovely stuff.
