A500 is an interesting product
With EQ to make changes to the sound
It can do so much more tuning than traditional sppekers

Just unbox this pair of old speakers, for trying out the new streamer amp. It will take days to complete this desktop setup.




i seriously have no idea how is this going to be a desktop setup, with a 55" screen, speakers & amp combined to be almost about the size of the table.  :o :o :o

i can only say, your table very big.   ;D

LG show off their 48 inch model in CES2020 as gaming monitor. The ideal is attractive. But now it seem not practical.

In terms of treble it blows S40 away.....about the 805 bass does sounded deep and punchy dunno why some ppl say it sound lifeless? and treble can fight with my beryllium....piano really sound great on those so far loving it have only 15 mins of listening....just that i need to rush to work can't play too long with it......now my S40 is the weakest might change to contour 20i to be on par with my current speakers in the future

Err bro.. the 805 costs around twice that of the S40s.. is it a truly fair comparison?

Yes, can't expect S40 to be as good
I still like the feedback of Esotar vs top end tweeter. But have a feeling that even higher end Esotar 3 can't match those B&W Diamond.

To me the diamond/beryllium tweeter is more sensitive to lower resolution music if it's sux it will sound rubbish...vocal don't sound solid and full must feed cds, wav or flac to get the full effect... as compare to dynaudio dome tweeter is more forgiving doesn't go as high but smooth so it depends on what you listening to.....for all round dynaudio is better you can use youtube to listen to music no issue

Ya i use it to play some games yesterday the soundstage sounded was wider than before playing horizon zero dawn i can hear my character's footstep clearly and birds chipping away above......really is a immersive experience like i using sound surround on my desktop

Great to see so many other fellow desktop nearfield bros!
Anyone delved into room correction? i am trying to figure out how to incorporate it in the most brain-dead manner. Read about the paradigm PW amp and PW link but it seems they can't be used as a "turn-key" digital solution (i.e. connect from PC toslink to PW link, then toslink to external DAC, to preamp etc).
Read up a bit on REW/DIRAC software as well, but needless to say, it gave me a major migraine. Ideally, would like a software based (jriver plugin?) solution so I can continue to use my gear (i.e. DAC, amp, speakers)
