Hey everyone! This is Simmons, or more commonly known as Simmons572 on most platforms. (Man it's great to actually get this username for once!)

 

Funny enough, shortly before I learned about EHW, I just finished moving my desk out of my bedroom into a more permanent location.

Looking forward to seeing how this site develops over the coming months!

Hey Simmons !

 

Welcome to EHW, glad you were able to finally get the username you wanted.

 

Wow nice setup you have going there. Mine is super bog standard but would not mind a screen setup like that. Due to space my desk is small and a little cramped. Once we move it will be time to get a big boy desk lol

 

We still have work to do on the site, not a huge amount but some important elements to come. As always though, it is a continuous development ;)

 

Cheers,

E

It's definitely a liberating experience being able to get a fully loaded desk. Admittedly, the speakers and head units are my fathers, so those won't be able to go with me when I do finally get the boot, but at least I get to enjoy them while I can.

 

Site is looking great so far mate :)

Crazy setup simmons!

 

I don't blame dad for wanting to keep the old stereo... My dad has a setup from ca 1983 that he worships too. Time for college grads to get out there and buy their own 2019 high end stereo :p

 

Right? The thing was, those speakers were in closet storage for a while because my mother didn't like looking at them.

 

I adore the sound signature of these things, and I found out that JBL put out an anniversary edition version of these speakers a little while back with updated controls for the crossovers, so I may have to invest in those before long. Don't really know much about head units (yet), so I will need to also invest in a head unit which can power two pairs of speakers for if I decide to do a multizone configuration in the future, similar to what I have have with the crossover'ed Bose 301 II's.

 

This audio stuff is really fascinating, but man is there a lot to learn.

Which speakers? I wonder if the anniversary editions will retain the classic sound or just be new speakers with heavy bass in the same chassis. I like retro looking things.

 

My dad has a really nice looking Marantz receiver (4300?).. I forget what speakers and there's also another amp and analog EQ.. I don't think it would be well received by the modern electronic music crowd because it sounds so "warm". To me it's a beautiful sound when you hear the full gamut instead of airy bumping bass and flared out treble. Could be how he keeps the EQ set though but I always could tell the difference when he had that on.

 

I'm no audio expert either, just have spoiled ears since I got my first pair of sennheiser cans back in 2002. Headphones always tend to sound way better than many thousand dollar stereos to me.

Both the JBL's and the Bose's. I did some research and found out the cost of those speakers on Ebay, was shocked, and opted to hook them up to my desktop lol.

Allegedly, the 4312SE (Anniversary Edition) sounds pretty damned close to the original, but I have yet to hear them in person.

what are the odds that I was literally just setting up f@h on my second PC and in need of the team number and my passkey, but saw this in my email first and checked to see your quote, and there's the team number I needed lawl.

 

One more event on the Vega 64 for me I guess since buyer ran away.

F@H is something I am wanting to bring to EHW in time, the nice thing is I can feature stats etc as a widget on the site :)
