    Brains trust- is the veneer on these imitation or real timber?

    Its real veneer with a "fully locked" satin finish, you can't see the texture of the grain no matter what angle you view the finish on. Like Sonus Faber's but not 100% gloss.

    Basing this on my previous S3900's I owned.

    Thanks Chris, should have just PMD you, in hindsight. 😁

    Itís a case by case thing and if you are a tweaked.

    It depends if the original design would benifit from Biamping?

    That is a question for the original design engineer.

    Unfortunately without technically valid insights changes to the operational mode can make it different but not necessarily better. Like change crossover parts, attempting to Biamp.

    My suggestion is listen to them for a while and have an open mind to setting up the system in terms of enclosure including height off the floor location.

    An A class system can evolve into an AAA+ system with careful attention to setup which is not a 5 minute exercise.
    Set up REW 5 is the next step and get acquainted with that as a tool to further refine the system setup.

    The Parasound is a solid amp but it might be worth auditioning other amps to find the sweet spot.

    Ian, thank you and yes, am familiar with pedantic speaker positioning, it can bring huge benefits, think the 'Get Better Sound' book advice on speaker/listening possie/room measurements to the mm.

    Amps, nup, am getting off the merry go round after this, haha.

    Cool.

    What l was alluding to was a demonstration where a pair of 4333 style were placed on supports the height of milk crates. While some room correction had been applied they were quite impressive in a large room.

    Am currently making some timber plinths @ 150mm high to bring the centre of the horn to ear level and we'll just play around with heights, toe in etc from there.
