Nice room, HK!  I've been in touch with Greg at Pi Audio about the room treatment panels. I plan to give em a try very soon.

Thanks Geno. I think you'll be very happy with the diffusers. FWIW, I attached my diffusers to the walls with 2" long T-pins which are used for sewing. The panels are very lightweight and Greg can paint them with any Behr paint color you desire.

I really like the platform. Sonically, I noticed a slight decrease in noise as compared to my 3" maple platform w/ Herbie Audio footers.

In terms of SQ noise improvement to my system, I would rank them from greatest to least as follows: ZMA 25th Anniversary mods>Pi Audio uberBUSS power conditioner>diffuser panels>Zen platform.

To me the platform is icing on an already great tasting cake😊.

Roger,

What a great setup!! †The OBís must sound amazing with your ZMA/ CSP3 25th/ and ZBIT combo. †The room treatment must really make that room sing! ††The next time I am in your area, I would definitely love to come by for a listening session. †

Thanks Dom. You're welcome at the refuge anytime. Looking forward to getting my new Modwright PH 9.0 phono preamp next week. Let the vinyl spinning begin in earnest.

HK, I ordered the diffusers a few days ago. I notice that there are 2 male and 2 female panels. How are these supposed to be placed?

HK, after a big time delay because of Covid, Iím finally due to get my diffusers Monday. Iíve been meaning to ask how you attached yours to the wall? I thought about just letting them sit on the floor, but I like the way yours look.

Thanks,

Geno

Put the Omega XRS SAHO speakers back in the system this morning, supplanting the Caintuck Lil F15's for a spell. Damn these are magical speakers. Plan to spend a couple of weeks listening to these.

Then, hopefully my Modwright modded Cambridge CXN V2 will be arriving from Dan Wright. †Preparing for some major goosebumps 😁.

HK,

Thanks for the heads up on the Pii Audio diffusers. The sound has really tightened up and gone to another level. Plus, I love the way they look.

Best,

Geno

Glad you like them Geno. Dave's Pi Audio power conditioners are amazing as well. I have an UberBUSS for my source equipment and preamp and just ordered a MiniBUSS for my HT system. One of the biggest + changes to my listening system.

Well, I got my matching TT stand assembled and transferred some of the analog equipment to the new stand. Took some time to level the stand, but the results were worth it. A much less cluttered look which I really like😎.

CXN will go where the VDAC2 (modded TEAC NT503) now sits (3rd shelf up) and the small form computer atop the CD player will be gone. †One piece per shelf as God intended Smiley.
