  1. Kudos to you for knowing what you want. Yes, deffo go for it. You like them, so do it!
  2. You're not going mad, I've noticed that too over the last few days. Don't know why.
  3. Blimey, I feel your pain. You've forked out more than £4k for something you've not been happy about from the outset. I'd be wanting a refund or an exchange until I have something I'm happy knowing that works as described. Your story has certainly put me off looking at the Selekt.
  4. I already have one of your dream desires...a subscription to Qobuz!
  5. phino, do those Ninka's of yours have rear ports or not? My Keilidh's don't. I'm tempted to try the acoustic panels however.
  6. Being a Yorkshireman, I'm more the Pontefract Cake type.
  7. Thanks Paul, I look forward to your next visit to Edinburgh!
  8. Does this mean that generally the more toe-in, the greater the illusion of a deeper soundstage?
  9. Me too. But I know my hearing isn't the best. I don't doubt Paul has great hearing and can tell the difference. He says so and I have no reason to think he's lying. After all we are all different and have our own strengths. It would be nice if many of you on here could be respectful. If Paul can detect a difference then that difference exists. If you can't detect that difference then there is no difference...but only to you.
  10. I LOVE the look of those speakers! Good luck tomorrow.
  11. Paul, I hope that these criticisms and attacks don't discourage you from posting more on your experiences of hifi tweaks. I for one have found it very interesting and enlightening as to what improvements in sound can be achieved with little financial outlay. Although I have been a music fan for many years it's only recently I've become particularly interested in the individual components of a hifi system. I look forward to reading more about your observations on the subject.
  12. Thanks Paul. My listening is pretty eclectic but I'm always interested in what others chose as audiophile demo material.
  13. Very interesting Paul. Did anyone ask Gilad why Linn don't use Linn speakers to demo the Selekt?
