really sweet stuff there!!!

kind of stupid in my opinion, though. why spend $$$ to get speakers like that then throw them in an untreated room? you'll never get the full benefit on them that way.

leave it to rich people

funnily enough, they got brought up again on that other forum...

here is a link...

http://www.6moons.com/industryfeatur...co/magico.html

I am not sure, but the ones pictured may have been in the 'prototype' stage, so maybe that accounts for the room...

if your going to drop over 200K on some speakers, i would guess most people would have a dedicated space designed for them...

hey y'all here's my 'at home' setup complete with a new 1620LE, loving it!

Install is temporary, but solidly anchored until I build a full console. Finished console will also house some of my
other audio items inc Studer A810, Tascam 122 MkII and numerous other bits of kit...

cheers

i AM old skool yes, I've owned them for 15 years. They've have had a very easy life (one is actually a 1300 plus I have another SL-P1200 not seen in this picture). They're not as user friendly as modern cd decks, you really need to read the user manual on these units to understand cue programming and lack of buffer! I've used many slp's in venues between 1989-1998, so I'm well used to them, but everyone has Pioneer or Denon these days. Personally, I feel they sound far more rich and detailed than any other pitch adjustable cd deck ever produced, particularly when compared to Pioneer...

they are going to be patchable so i can play on the bozak when i'm buy myself & switch back to the rane for my friends as i don't like them touching it "they don't understand " and i host a BBQ every monday night for my staff & friends and everyone wants to put a record on.
but at the present the bozak is in the rack as it is the safest place to store it (and it looks cool )....

i do a radio show one a week on KISSfm and i have contemplated getting a ISDN line to my house and playing from home. especialy as i have better quality equipment than KISSfm. , but i think i would have to pay tones of money to APRA.

If i do pull it off you are welcome to do your show from my ponderingroom just bring some beer...

Also if anyone wants my Allen&Heath Xone 3D, I'm selling it at a great price!

Thanks. The reason I'm selling the 3D is because I don't like it, I'm not into all this midi nonsense, cdj's is as far as Iím taking it, Although I'm not saying I donít agree with people using it. It's just not for me. Also the sound difference between the two is so small it's unbelievable! Yes the 3D has a slightly more liquid (Transparent) sound with a real weighty bottom and sweet top but you can hear this difference on only 3 records I have! The rest sound the same!! I recorded the same records on the denon then A&H on cd using the same deck and compared them and was real shocked, Also Pink Floyd sounded better on the Denon! So I think I can live with the Denon and for the price difference it's not worth it. The EQ's on the other hand on the 3D are better sounding in the mix but are crap isolators where on the other hand on the Denon they make fantastic Isolators but donít sound as good as the A&H, but I'm talking not far off A&H. The build on the 3D is shockingly bad, real flimsy construction compared to the Denon, if you pressure the bottom while itís on (i.e. lift it up) it will make it buzz like a bitch, the sound card is bollocks and the recording quality is worse than my M Audio Audiophile when recording with the USB, the faders for a mixer of this price are balls and and, and I say and are not VCA except for the X-Fade how I know this is because they cant be vcaís if I can hear them crackle right? On the denon they sond clean, the only thing that crackles a bit on both mixers are the eq pots, although you canít hear this with music just test frequencies i.e. low sine wave. The midi section feels very cheap and tacky, shit vu metering (A&H speciality) and check this how idiotic is this, when you press cue the main meters are by-passed and display your cued signal even though you have individual meters in every Channel that have the same amount of ledís as the main ones unlike on the 62 where you had a 4 bar meter this is the full thing, I put it down to bad design. Also another thing that annoys me is the fact when you unselect the cue the main out is blasted through the cans. Also they should of put a switch like on the 92 to have the headphone signal pre eq.
So all in all not worth the bother, although those nice rubber eq knobs feel really nice. I just want to sell it and get CDJ-800's, Mk2s would be nice and have some cash left over. I was thinking £1300 for the A&H, It's brand new and only out of the box for less than a week.

They did offer me the S6 for an extra £500 I didn't have at the time and I didn't want to screw them around for ages saying ohh can you wait a bit I'l have the money this week or next and so on so I took the 3D. Do I regret it? not really, because If I got the s6 I wouldn't have the cash for nice CDJ's or cash to eat or any cash to buy tunes. It is a shame on the other hand and I do dream about mixing on it but don't really regret it. After all equipment doesnít make you a good dj but it does help and Iím satisfied with the sound output from the denon although one of those rane MP2016ís would be nice too. I didnít realise I was on the DJ mag website either lol : http://www.djmag.com/djtech044
