    Yes, first thing I did with my C Sharp was to purchase the Japanese imported Oyaide carbon piped clamp.

    Re: Morgan’s system

    Listening to London Grammar tonight and the sense of space the Blades create is really something. I am very satisfied with these speakers. They won’t be going anywhere for a really long time.

    Thanks for for all of the positive comments. Great community here on AS!

    Re: Morgan’s system

    Morgan, I'd love to see and hear your system sometime. I'm about 1:45 minutes from Iowa City. I spent 7 years there as an undergrad, dental student, hospital dentistry resident, and later as an adjunct professor at the College Of Dentistry. You're welcome to hear my system anytime. I've only had it a couple weeks. It's breaking in as I write this.

    My wife and I live in a small house. We have no children except one of the four legged variety. My listening room is 27' x 12'. The Harbeth Super HL 5+ 40th Anniversary Model speakers are perfect for my listening room. I'm really enjoying my entire system although it's not nearly as elaborate as yours. Great hobby, this.
    Amplifier: Pass Labs INT 250 integrated.

    DAC/Streamer: MSB Discrete Dual Power Supply.

    Server: Roon Nucleus with lifetime subscription.

    Speakers: Harbeth Super HL 5+ 40th Anniversary
    Model.

    Cables: AudioQuest Rocket 88 speaker cables,
    Mackenzie interconnects.

    Speaker Stands: HiFi Man.

    Let me know when you’re in Iowa City and we will try to make it happen!

    Cool! I'll let you know when I can go your direction. Maybe we can try and coordinate our schedules?

    Re: Morgan’s system

    @mpw - Have you ever put the QRDs on your front wall (e.g wall behind spkrs). If you haven’t I’d be interested to hear your impressions with all 4 or at least 2 of them.

    It would be an easy experiment and their effect can be pretty significant IME. Keep broadban at first reflection points though.
    Main:
    Room:
    Dedicated 25 x 14 x 8 treated room
    Computers (in utility room): High end Win10 wkst (headless) running lifetime ROON server. High end wkst #2 Win Server 2019 running HQP
    Network rack (in utility room): Managed Fiber Switch, QNAP NAS
    Endpoint: Fiber to SONORE OR w/ LPS, Sbooster USB vbus2
    DAC: Lampi Lite7
    Pre: Atma-Sphere MP-3 Mk3.3 Pre
    Amps: Pass XA100.5 Mono's
    Speakers: Revel Ultima Studio2 (GAIA footers) with Dual PSA X15 sealed subs
    Isolation: Components on custom roller bearings + compression springs
    Cables: Wireworld Platinum USB / Analysis Plus PC / Gotham 4/4 XLR / AQ spkr

    Office: Win10 wkst with Spotify or ROON controller > VDAC-II > VLINK 192 > Yamaha RX integrated > Polk audio signature Monitors >12" sub

    I had the QRD’s on the front wall in my previous room and liked the effect. I am going to be honest and say that I don’t really like looking at them. This is why I had the GIK art panel made with the juke box photo. This is a 6” thick bass trap. I did try broadband at first reflection but really liked the effect of the QRD’s at first and second reflection. I can switch the sequence of the panels around to do broadband at first reflection and will experiment more before settling on a final solution. I am using the setup that was optimal for my Reference 3’s but have not yet optimized the Blades. I don’t expect a change, but stranger things have happened!

    Cool, good to hear. I enjoy the acoustic stuff immensely. The room and the supporting treatments are so profound, it amazes me people spend thousands on other items rather then understanding how the room and acoustics interact with the overall sound one hears.

    Read it all the time in other threads where some poo poo it and think it’s of little significance- a couple book shelves and you’re good to go . Im not referring to living rooms /shared spaces where a “studio” feel isn’t gonna happen, but I digress.
