Music is a universal language, and needs not be translated, with it soul speaks to soul.

Sonically krub. I couldn’t explain scientifically how it works but when Khun Pong from Duet came and tried on my system, I like the sound from my system more than the one without it. I listen to songs mostly from Lee Ritenour, Dave Grusin, David Benoit and all those from GRP. Those songs are nicer to listen to, krub.

The pre and the power are working well together krub. Most of my friends (actually only 3 :lol:) have similar set up but they are paring it with Cary 805, their sytems sound very fast yet suductive (excuse my interpretation if it conflicts in itself as it is very difficult to put into words. those systems sound sooooo good krub). I understand that dmc 20 provides you with internal tuning which is a very good feature to have but i'd rather leave it to professional to do it in order to avoid the danger from electrocute krub :P.

I believe there are so many voodoos in hifi krup, have you tried finding out from other bands krub i.e. martin, taylor or ovation

Never tried krub.

I'm not asking sacastically na krub, one of my friend told me that placing ovation is better than taylor :wow:; he doesn't have martin krub.

ขอบคุณครับสำหรับข้อมูลเกี่ยวกับปรีและเพาเวอร์แมทชิ่ง

ตัวปรับ resonance ของ Acoustic System ที่ติดอยู่ฝาหลังเป็นรุ่นไหนครับ
ไม่ทราบว่าใครเป็นตัวแทนจำหน่ายอยู่ครับ


Keep Walking

i like the set up krub, i wanted to complete the system this way too but with no luck.   What i have discover about magnepan is that, adding a fast subwoofer could fill up the room more and make the music more involving krub

just my opinion...

The top one is silver and the bottom one is basic krub. I bought those from P' Pong (Duet). They help in the area of bass definition and more deatail on the mid krub. Small wood on top of the guitar as well krub, that's from Acoustic System and designed to work with box speakers.

Some more information krub

Thanks for the opinion krub. I like your set up and system selection too, always wonder how magnepan will sound like on a very good amp like Emitter 2. I learned from other magnepan users as well that Rel subwoofer is going really well with Magnepan, will try krub. With the current set up, I have just enough bass. Is it difficult to blend in the two together in your system krub?
