    Well, the NATs SE2SEs are narrow and deep, so may well suit Ultras ergonomically
    Utopia linestage and Eera cdp are more standard dimensions, if a little smaller than the Magnetostat, so Giants may be ok
    The Giants I bought from you worked just fine under my Eera

    Btw, have you seen the price spike on Mooks?
    Ultras are now Giants' price from a while ago, and Giants are in excess of 2500
    Go Brexit, go!
    Harlequin's advice to do Giants on source/linestage, and Ultras the rest gets no financial argument from me 😎
    Indeed, I'm minded to allow my current system to settle in the new space w no component changes at all, get to know the room, max out the acoustics w my GIKs, and add to these w diffusors if advantageous, and max tonality and the "Wood" of the sound by progressively Mooking each component in time
    This will mean starting w my existing Giants under the Utopia linestage, add Giants or Ultras to the Eera cdp, thence NATs monoblocks, bpt, Entreqs

    I think you should buy one set of ultra, and then compare your giant and the ultra on the pre and the CDP. I think given the sizes (there will be feet and screws underneath) they might struggle to accomodate the Giants. Not that you need to figure it out now. Once you compare the ultra and the giant, you will know immediately. And for the one that doesn't work, you will have room for it under some other component, so you won't lose any money. But better to buy one ultra and move it around to know how many giants and ultras you need.

    Good advice Ked
    Now all I need is the cash
    I've sunk about 35k/$50k into my new space, so I'm a tad short of funds atm 🤔
    Anyhow, Ultras v Giants should be fascinating

    Just acquired a few older pre owned Super's, interestingly the quality of the M'pingo is exceptional with regard to weight and perceived density as compared to some new production Ultra's , we shall see!

    I.have been searching for Supers. Jealous you got them.

    I think he tuned the weight, so new ones are lighter

    Sorry about that bonzo

    My understanding also, May well prove to be an interesting Older rather dense Super's Vs Lighter new production Ultra's shoot out.

    I acquired them with the Ref250's in mind however I might even try them under the CLX's .

    I just received an interesting PM from a new member who recommended sitting ones Mooked equipment upon glass rather than wood, interestingly for the same reasoning I like the hybrid effect of Mook's upon a Stillpoint rack.

    Have so many I don't know where to put them all
    Whilst I do employ a set of GDR's on case tuning duties, the image was taken as a reference to folks re relative size of the DR's as well as the organic variation in the M'Pingo timber itself.
