Thanks for that, really helpful! At the moment I’m running them as much as possible even optically linked the telly to the Nova to get...

I’m not shallow not to like speakers just because they are “old and cheap”, Allaes look fantastic are in mint condition and sound great.

Answer two: The Allaes are fine speakers but the nature of our hobby we all want more, I didn’t appreciate how much I liked them until a...

You missed the point of my post, my Wife doesn’t need to “choose and buy” my speakers for me, that is totally my decision. My wife...

How are yours placed within your listening room, how far from the wall etc? Nick

The original owner said they had “approx 100hrs on them” I had them running all day yesterday and they were sounding better but still...

I’ll have to sell the Ovators and then think about alternatives, the Focals are a possibility I heard the 926 once and liked them. Nick

Right then, two days of different positions I’ve reinstated my Allaes and it’s like a breath of fresh air, they’re staying. Gutted I...

They are about 12” from the wall, I’ve had them about 2ft out with no change in quality, the bass is ok it’s the lack of detail etc I’m...

Just took a rather rubbish photo to give you an idea of the placement. I think the speaker cables are fine as when I swap to the Allaes...

Sat here listening now, playing favourites that I know well, tried the speakers from 3” to 12” from the rear wall, various degrees of...

Checked the phase of the speakers and they are correct, I’m using NACA5 but I haven’t soldered the Ovator plugs at the moment I’m using...

Reply by dalmatian

They only have around 100 hrs of use in them, could this be a factor as I know how much Naim equipment needs to be ran in? Nick

I am prone to a knee jerk reaction! I will have another go at positioning them tomorrow, I am disappointed and a bit dispondant with the...

I thought the Nova would be well up to the job of driving the Ovators as it’s often seen driving big focals with great results. As for...

Because I bought them used I was unable to dem them first, I knew it was a gamble buying them, I know speakers are very personal/room...

I have set them to the recommended distances etc and moved in 10mm increments in all directions but they are way off in terms of detail,...

Thanks for the replies, it seems what I’m looking for is the HDD version with the built in memory. You have saved me from making a...

Reply by dalmatian

Yes, I have recently upgraded to 4.6 firmware and it has been a nice upgrade and is giving me more of what I’m looking for. Nick

I use the AKG Q701’s (Quincy Jones version) with my Superuniti and it drives them really well, I had the Sennheiser 650’s and thought...
