  1. I totally understand you Antonio. You want me to step/think accurately. We used 3 speakers: Twenty.23 Twenty.24 and Ib1s. And 3 different DACs with computer (using foobar 2k with ripped waw files from cds' which we also tested from CD player) and roksan CD player benchmark dac2 L, spl director, and antelope zodiac premium. And one roksan integrated amplifier. Benchmark made the all combinations sound similar on bass and treble regions. Slightly rolled off sub basses and tad bit digital upper regions. From CD player or computer. We used spl director as dac. It has less dominant character, bass regions from different speakers are differed with it. It seemed it has less detail And seperation after benchmark but as i heard it's due to more body it can deliver. Also it sounded more analogue. Zodiac was the best, at least from computer Via USB. Speakers' soundstage differances And bass performances (abilty to go deep And being dynamic wise differed most with it. I liked zodiac as DAC And Ib1s most, but they are out of my budget. And the performance difference between 23 and 24 was so little, so spending 1k more on 24 is, imho, pointless to me. And director can be used as preamp. So for price/performance wise 23 + director sounded best as I heard. But I decided, before I decide, I want to change my house, move to a apartment with min. 30m2 room and want to listen quads with class a powers such as krell ksa, bryston or some pass amplifiers. I mostly rush things and act/decide without proper thinking. But I want to be patient now. I might be misjudged quads.
  2. I've listened pmc twenty.23... I still wonder how dynamic and punchy a speaker w/o woofer and so small. However I didn't like benchmark 2 L. It has a character. And I spotted a jewel at a hifi Store: ess heil motion 12. Newest ones... I'm going to listen them at tuesday with different atlas cables. Anyone has heard them before? Anyway... Wish ne luck.
  3. I'm looking for advices of you again. I'm looking for stereo system components which reveals cables, records, even stands which they stands on. I want to call what I want characterless or boring to listen. I want this system for A/B testing. And of course I'm on a budget like 6000 Dollars. I'm going to look for second hand components. and XLR is must. The brands I've heard from people are; PMC (I'm going to listen some of them in saturday) and ATC for speakers, Bryston for amplifier, and I'm looking for a studio dac (I think mytek has best price/performance ratio) Do you have any ideas about any other brands? Any cheaper alternative to Bryston especially? I hope I can deliver my thoughts properly. Thanks for advices guys.
  4. Well... It happened yesterday but, still kind of big news. As it turns out I also have ADHD. I started to use ritalin. Well it is the easiest disorder to cope with which I have. But drugs are getting more complex and riskier. But I'm not down. Now I can see clearly and I have a new challange.
  5. As I understand he meant the price difference between L700 and 007mk2

  9. Henry David Thoreau is a guy i admire most. And this book describes my dream (with little changes)
  10. I reallt envy you. In Istanbul there is no chance to have this sight. Even if one rich as fuck...
  11. I had a bus at 6:20 am. I woke up at 5:00 but somehow when I got up it was 9:30... Then I went out for smoke from my apartment. With only cigarette and lighter... Then I started to search lockpicker on sunday. He arrived at 15:00... Then I quickly pack my stuff and got a cab to go to bus station. At road a guy hit the taxi. Driver went crazy and went after him... After some cursing and 10 km chase, I reached the station to see there is no bus to go to my hometown till midnight... Ffs... Congrats Jacob. I'm really happy for you. Guys wish the same for me... I'm about to die cuz of loneliness. I'm about to become charlie sheen...

  13. Here is my rig: Rega P3-24 > rega elys 2 > oldstep enhance phono > silverfi spirit > heavily upgraded quad twenty four > dh labs cables > quad forty monoblocks > cardas crosslink > quad esl-2905
  14. Guys anyone has any info about Pathos Inpol 2? Or all inpol series? I really like their look and also going to demo them. How does pathos amplifiers get along with Quad electrostatics? Another reason is I want to get a integrated amp, 1 preamp + 2 monoblocks take so much space. I recently got a oldstep enhance phono and I cannot use it cuz of space problems. I'll upload the pictures of my system too.

  18. As he said to me just one leg got deattached from eye. I smoked 1 pack of cigarettes since the morning. ffs I feel extremely guilty.
  19. My father got cataract surgery yesterday. And did not care about it. Also I made him help organising/unboxing my speakers. He went to doctor for control today and doctor said that lens is moved. Fuck I feel guilty as hell. He have to have another surgery today. I feel hell today...
  20. Fuck. That is devastating. I'm so sorry guys I learnt that I cannot get US visa any more. I wanted to join you guys in 2018 meetings. I really feel sorry about it. As return we stopped giving visa to USA citizens. That made me laugh. And I got my pre and power amplifiers today: And speakers are on their way:
