Today was the first listening to the new studio setup where I've moved to. I'm operating in basically 1/3 the space of my old studio but I'm completely blown away by how great my Hafler M5 speakers sound.http://www.emusician.com/news/0766/hafler-m5/143896
I set them up with a Hafler 100 w amp I'd not been using and they sounded lousy -all high end. Put my Alesis 100 w in place and suddenly ,just amazing detail. (Hafler amp must be faulty) It has to be partly the room which is very small and thick carpeted floor. This is a pleasant surprise ,anxious to see what the Hosa 8" sound like.
Main ongoing point, dump fading technology unless you're really using it. I have roughly 10 scsi cables which will have to be thrown away as well as a EMU ESI sampler and Pioneer cd rom scsi standalone drive - all of zero value.
