Can I turn my 2-way Bookshelf speakers 90°…?
My Roksan Darius MkIV (from the glorious 90’s) were designed to work like that, in a 90 degree angle. In fact I am listening to them right now, and the soundstage is huge with pin point imaging. Although very tough to set-up, all efforts were rewa...

Looking for a budget Step-up Transformer
Thanks to all. Great suggestions :) Unfortunately most SUT are from outside Europe, which adds to much costs. I will keep looking…

Schiit URD CD Transport SOON?
To me the URD is an very interesting CD transport and it is certainly well priced, for everyone looking for a serious performing machine with great interest in just playing CD’s, like me. That said, the only things that bothers me are: - the size...
