    Still have my old Bosch. Have used lasers forever. Sure beats the measuring tapes from years ago. Multiple laser levels on tripods to find absolute center of a room is next level. Think: matrix! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    never used one for the audio, but we sure do use them for auto body fabrication and for home building and tile work. We have a couple of Huepar 4D products.

    Been using my Bosch laser measuring device for years now. It pays sonic dividends to have things exact.

    To make things clear, I opened it and took a picture. You see above the amplifier unit, and below the internal powersupply. It does come with a 500W powersupply, It is 525W at 4 ohm and 260 at 8 ohm. I think, looking to all those capacitors it...

    Agreed. With less “stuff” and no absorption on side walls, tweeters inside could be the best. Regardless, there is flexibility for placement and no right or wrong. We have them 3 feet from side wall and 6 feet from back wall (after taking this...

    The look heavy but so cool. Thanks for sharing Are you using dedicated 20- or 30-amp lines to feed each of them. I read each can draw as much as 2300 watts from your wall outlets :amazing:

    Hello Mr Mike.
    Sorry if I said something wrong ,since I'm new to this hobbies.

    Today I auditioned 30.2 with NAT SET monoblock. The voice was so full of body but I still miss some bass and I think it kinda rolled off in high. The equipment separation was good only some albums.

    Then I auditioned Diablo120 with their Mojos(different dealers). I'm amazed with the soundstage, image and how clean they produced them(is that mean they bright?), but instantly I miss the Midrange and full body voice feel of Harbeth and NAT.

    Will Diablo produce better midrange when pair with Harbeth??

    I still waiting to try Luxman next

    Thank You Sir.

    Mike, 12mths ago new mk2 (with copper heatsinks + upgrades) was €30000, the one in pics was €16000. I'd happily ask the world distributor if you wish. I have no financial interest at all in this. Met him 12ths ago in Paris, we got chatting. Lovely man, Italian, prefers speaking English to French even though he lives in Paris. Hah!
