    Try investing on good stands - Atacama. Using these for my Spirits.... they sound very good for your speaker size.. i reckon a 24" one would suffice.

    Oooo ... you dug up this thread

    Firstly ... got to ask yourself this:

    1. Are you a 2 channel person or a multi channel person?
    2. What's your source most of the time? (games or music)
    3. Do you listen through earphones / headphones most of the time.

    For me, i have a Marantz SR-4300 hooked up. A simple set with 5.1 speaker system for movies only via digitial Coaxial using an Audigy as a source. Otherwise, i'm using a NAD integrated for my music.

    Hello everone,
    I am a newbie here. I am writing with reference to LAUGH's picture.

    One thing I love to eat is the mutton soup. Malay style or the Hainanese style. After looking at your little picture, I leel like I must give up eating mutton soup. I swore in 1992 not to eat turtle soup any more after seeing those cute little things struggling to stay alive.

    Good morning & have a nice work week.

    Thanks & regards,
    David.

    1) I listen much more to music. esp mp3, and some radio. hardly any CDs.(the CD player on my mini-compo has spoilt). SO i guess 2 channel is enough. most sound cards support at least 5.1 though

    2) source is mp3. i dun do games

    3) Erm...mostly thru speakers.

    I duno what is SR-4300 now know how you integrate your NAD...

    cheers

    Hi,

    Personally my front speakers are Polk Audio Studio monitors and I like them.

    My rear speakers are JBL's.... I like them too.

    Bose have made some very nice speakers over the years, but, one thing that made me think was....

    I came across a pair of floor standing speakers they made that had an accoustic brick.
    This "accoustic brick" was a brick positioned within the enclosure to stop the colum from falling forward
    It was an incorrectly designed enclosure

    Cheers

    Oh, by the way, I have a pair of JVC speakers for only S$30. Yes, only $30 with free dysfuntional system. The pictures are at

    Wahaha, didnt know my avatar could make you think twice about eating mutton.

    Just an update, im really enjoying my NAD integrated with my KEF speakers, am waiting for my new place to set up the equipment properly. Next on my list is a NAD cd player...

    As for PC, i really have no idea which spikes are good. Im using creative 2.1s...
