Connect X0e or X1e into anything including FX2 is depends how far do you want the performance to go. I am quoting something a 3 Times X0e. That doesn't equal to X1e because X1e has more than just multiple times of X0e. If you have one FX2 and want to improve the performance of the whole system, my ...

Re: X1e and X0e upgrades

X1e module with 14 awg wire and wall plug in 4" x 6.25" long ABS pipe, CAD800.00 Gil But, Getting caught up on all this stuff. So does the X1e module plug into any free outlet, similar to the way you would use the sillycone filters? I assume I can use it on my non-BC balanced power conditioner? Is ...

Yeah, you need to experiment with these rings. I have Herbie's as well and used them on EH 6922 but didn't like what they did with GL 6922. And although I used them on the BC206, I didn't like them on the BC208.

Beyond1000, If you cycle the power to the filter, it will help accelerate the burn-in process. I put my pipes on a timer and set it so that it would power them on and off at 1 hour intervals for a week. Gilbert says the plates get formed faster this way. Don't be too hasty to form an opinion until t...

Bob,
I agree with what you're saying, but it is also part and parcel of being an audiofool. I don't think I could ever fully stop tinkering, not even talking about audio. Always dreaming about the next thing... unfortunately :oops:

I assume you're asking if the 208-NST has changed much since my last post about 3 weeks ago? The changes haven't been drastic ... if at all. The mind can play tricks as we get accustomed to something over a period of time. I would probably say that the fine details, micro dynamics have developed som...

Cedboe, I'd be very curious to hear your impressions of the Darts, but let them break-in properly before doing any "real" listening. You are the first person that I have seen on any forum who would have had a chance to compare Dartzeel to BC gear directly. I would think that Gilbert's NSL line of am...

BCR, Thanks for the compliments. This room is 2ch only and all the black things are acoustic panels and traps. The panels that you see mounted on the walls are ASC PCAD panels which provide treble diffusion and midband absorption. The tall rectangular boxes are ASC TowerTraps that are usually put in...

Thanks guys. I'm really enjoying the new room. It's south side facing so it gets a lot of sun during the day and used to be hot as hell in the summer - I needed cold showers as well! The new glass is pretty impressive and blocks out a significant portion of the radiant energy. Should have done this ...

BJH is right, unless your tubes are beginning to fail, you likely won't notice any change because the degradation is so gradual. In my case, the tubes would exhibit an obvious problem, ie. noise or flashing. I originally left the 208s on all the time, but the GLs would seldom last more than 4 months...
