        Well, i think i had issues with the measurement setup i was using (so even a nearfield measurement right up to the cone wouldn't help me figure anything out), because I went by ear and to me the roll off sounded like it began at 41Hz so I guess that's not too bad but I can only tell how things change when I try it in another room which I haven't had the time to do.

      Not sure there's a thread for this: I'm going to be getting an SVS SB12NSD and wanted to enjoy it by limiting annoyance to the neighbours..

        Yeah i dont expect things to be easy, but so far I've only had one of my two neighbors complain once, and that was when the music was so loud that I literally said "sorry, gimme a minute I can't hear you over the music" when she came by to complain :p

        So yeah, I'm trying to make sure I never really start the complaints, it's always the case that once that gate opens up there's no going back.

        Good luck with blocking out 20 Hz. I think using sand is probably the only way to go, and highly impractical.

        Yeah I'm looking to minimise, not completely block. Not going to spend that much effort. Plus, most of my audio is music (rock/metal/jazz/etc) so I dont expect to be putting out waves that low

        It seems either way has issues based on what I've seen/heard. Pay the fee and they usually side with the seller.. Use the gift payment method with a CC, they do a chargeback and PayPal just takes the money from you to give it back to them

        To give context - this just happened to a friend who shipped an amplifier from the Netherlands to someone in Eastern Europe. Because it smelled a little scammy we thought it was safest going the gift route in case they made a false claim but apparently not.

        Paypal will almost always side with the sender of money during a gift dispute. Or, well, that's what a lot of furry artist drama taught me.

        Also, getting "gift money" on regular intervals (as in, not using business transactions for business) will result in a swift investigation closure.

        Not that 3 euros (9 -> 12 euros) is a deal breaker, I'm just surprised about such a large relative variation

        Irrespective of the price it sounds just crap. Mods do tighten the bass but midrange onwards it sounds really bad.
        Of all cheap options only ksc75 has sounded worthy .

        The stands forced me to place the speakers further apart and closer to the listening position with a lot of toe in (i have a desk between them), which i thought would be utter shite.. but no. The imaging is amazing! I havent heard these speakers do this ever. Just wow

        Go for it. Finish it in style with recommendations and a reference and stay at least for a year. If they offer you opportunities to become better at your job (training, courses etcetera) go for it. Even if it is not the best job, it is a good start...

        They're going to call me on Monday to talk about the contract (explain a few things, answer any questions i might have) and then I'll go ahead and sign it.

        I'm also going to tape up sheets saying "save money first, spend on audio/other random things second" all around my room for the first year.

        When i turn the balance knob all the way to the right channel, the left channel fully fades out and the right suddenly goes on with some distortion.. Could it be a bad balance pot?

        Well, the amp started working properly after half an hour, then died completely 15 minutes later. Turns out the output transistors died along with the fuses and some other stuff. Luckily it had been serviced recently and that service had a warranty so it was fixed free of charge.

      Anyone have experience with Cyrus amps? Specifically the Smartpower?
      1. Thad E Ginathom
        Thad E Ginathom
        Old Cyrus integrated amps. Long time back, a 3i made me feel like I had been listening to distortion rather than music with my previous amp. I still have that amp, but have a Integrated 6VS2 on the desktop. The speakers are poor by comparison: it does not get to show itself off. I actually use the headphone out. This cut-back, simplified system is good enough for my hearing (almost: I'd like better speakers.)

        So, my impression of Cyrus, over the years, is good but I know nothing of recent kit.

        Beware of one thing: they really want your brand loyalty, and all that stuff is made to work and look together. But if you *wanted* to do that, well... I wouldn't mind!

        Haha, I will be mixing and matching. Not sure what preamp I will use yet, but I wanted to move towards a separate pre/power amp setup and this could be my first entry into that space. Just wanted to make sure the Cyrus Smartpower is worth as a first step into this space

        Dont know how, but I'm curious cause its unopened!
