    Introducing Center Stage 2M

    peter pan: In case you didn't already know, the CS 2M is already the third generation of the CS feet. First we had CS1, then came CS2 and now we have CS 2M. I'm also disappointed that there seems to be no upgrade path or trade-in deals for existing customers of CS2 feet...:confused:

    Good mid-price audiophile switches

    Most people have maybe 10 - 20 meters between their Internet Acces Point/Router in their homes and their HiFi system in their listening room. My advise (and what's also been recommended to me) is to keep your Netgear switch close to your router and connect it with a good general ethernet cable...

    Good mid-price audiophile switches

    CKKeung, this Edisoncreation switch looks very interesting and I wonder if you can make a sonic comparison between the standard and the extreme version? I note that the Extreme version is almost double in price and therefore wondering if you think it's worth the higher price? What are the sonic...

    Center Stage2 "LS" Series Loudspeaker Feet

    Here are my impressions of the Center Stage2 LS 1.5 footers that I received on November 23. They were installed under my Wilson Audio Alexia Series 2 loudspeakers. Earlier, when the CS footers were introduced, I bought 2 sets for both my DAC and my preamplifier. They were later upgraded to...

    Sablon Ethernet - 2020 model

    Thanks for your answer. Since this is not only Sablon cable related, perhaps a new topic/thread in the Computer Audio section about your streaming journey could be valuable for others in a similar situation?

    Sablon Ethernet - 2020 model

    Very interesting. So, if I understand your setup correctly you have a longer ethernet cable of some other brand (?) going from a router/access-point to the EtherRegen and then the Sablon ethernet cable going to your streamer? I'm also considering optimising my streaming setup in a similar way...

    Sablon Ethernet - 2020 model

    You say that you replaced the SOTM ethernet cable with the Sablon cable. Can you elaborate a bit on what sonic improvements you got doing this? Thanks.

    Center Stage2 "LS" Series Loudspeaker Feet

    I'm intersted in an update on the LS 1.0 and how they compare to the LS 1.5, now when the LS 1.0 feet should have fully settled in? Do you, or Joe, believe that the differences between these feet would be far less with lighter speakers, say of 1/2 or 1/3 of you speakers? My speakers are 260...

    Sablon Ethernet - 2020 model

    Very good report. Can I suggest you write this in the USB cable thread instead so interested people can find it. This is the thread about the new ethernet cable.

    Center Stage 2

    My impressions on the CS2 feet Earlier this year I purchased two sets of CS1 feet, one set of CS 1.0 for my DAC and one set of CS 1.5 for my tube preamp. I posted my impressions on the CS1 feet in the other thread here on WBF. When the new CS2 feet came out I decided to do the upgrade. I...

    Confessions of an Audiophile Junky-I Got Center Stage With Pitch Perfect Sound

    Hi, I have now had a set of CS 1.0 and 1.5 feet playing in my system about 8 to 10 hours every day for 15 days. The CS 1.0 feet were installed under my DAC and the CS 1.5 feet under my rather heavy tube preamp. Here are some short listening impressions after about 2 weeks of use (in bullet...

    Confessions of an Audiophile Junky-I Got Center Stage With Pitch Perfect Sound

    You say there is a degradation in sound for some time until the feet have settled in, but what about sound improvements when replacing the CS 1.0 feet with the new CS 1.5 feet under the power amps and the power supplies? Would you say that the CS 1.5 feet are better than the CS 1.0 feet in...

    Dma-300rs

    Thank you ack for your very interesting and well balanced first impressions. It seems I should really try to get a way to listen to this amp myself. Hope my nearest dealer will get one so I can audition it and compare to their other amplifiers.

    Thanks. I guess I'm not the only one interested in 300 RS listening impressions.

    Dma-300rs

    :) I live in Europe and I will probably not have a chance to listen to it before I may be ordering it. Thus, listening impressions from you guys would be very much appreciated.

    Noone that has listened to the 300 RS yet? This is what Goodwin's HighEnd is writing: " Spectral DMA-300 RS stereo power amp. After a long wait this stunningly good power amp is finally here! Along with the DMA-400 RS mono amp, this is now the other Reference Standard amplifier in Spectral's...

    Dma-300rs

    I'm looking forward to reading your listening impressions. Also from others of course that have a chance to listen to the 300RS. Currently I have a DMC-30SS series 2 preamp and I'm now looking into buying a new power amp.

    Dma-300rs

    Interesting. So you mean that it will sound better in many ways than the 400RSs, if you don't need the extra power? Do you base this on the technical spec's or that you have talked to others that have already listened to the 300RS?

    Dma-300rs

    ack, thanks for the info! It will be interesting to hear feedback on how it sounds and how it compares to the DMA-400RS mono's.

    Anyone know if the DMA-300RS amp is out yet or when we can expect them?
