I've got a Cambridge Audio amp driving a nice set of Mordaunt Short speakers. All the wiring is plummed into the walls so it's neat, lacks bottom end though so if anyone has any ideas on a very small sub which I can tuck away somewhere let me know.

Cheaper option would be to push the speakers back into a corner if possible.

I've yet to hear anyone with a really well integrated subwoofer, easy for home cinema but tough for music (if you appreciate accuracy)

Would agree, either put them lower to the floor on solid stable stands to get a better bass or shove em back a bit,what model are they ?

Hmmm.

Accuracy.

Not really what we want for general listening is it?

2x Technics 1210 M5G with Ortofon QBert carts through a Pioneer DJM800 and an ancient JVC amp and Jamo speakers.

Amp and speakers are original from my first set of Soundlabs 17 years ago. Could really do with upgrading but given I can't get the levels above 2 in my flat without annoying people there's not much point.

Location: In the foothills of the foothills of The Cairngorm Massif :D
Audiolab Pre/Power amps (drove to Fife for the pre and Edinburgh for the power)
Micromega Stage 3 CD (delivered by postie)
Linn LP12 turntable (drove to Auchtermuchty to collect)
Mission 753s (collected from Gt Yarmouth)

:D

Thankfully I was doing other things in each area at the time...........

Audiolab a massive improvement over my previous Accoustic Research.
Micromega pisses over my earlier Rega Planet. In French.
Linn - yep good, but can be improved, but hey it was made in Eaglesham where I cycled as a kid!
753s - :D

And a detached hoose so I can crank it up officer :P

I've got some nice sounding micro system by Hitachi, but my main "hi-fi" system is my PC with Waveterminal M-192 sound card and decent wireless Sennheiser headphones.
But recently more often I use my Android phone whith PowerAmp app and Sennheiser earphones... Practical, nice sound, portable and I'm alive after listening loud to the new Meshuggah (Mrs and the daughter don't appreciate this sort of noises...) :wink:
