i think all my equipment is very new....so sound is not 'that' refined. I must burn in atleast 200 hours before final comments on sound. As of now , the sound is big with huge soundstage.

The bada amp is a very good piece. Itz got a huge heat sink and probably it runs in Class A mode upto 20 or 30 Watts. Bought it through ebay stores...

hey! where are you from and how much did you pay for this setup? Are you experiencing different "tube"sound compared to a solid state setup?

Sorry guys for the late reply..... :)

The thing is that at the moment the sound is very very big....something like a disco sound. It is not refined like a Marantz system, but i am hoping that after burn in , it will get better. Guys are there any ideas for proper burn in or burn in is only an urban legend!! ;)

All the components are from eBay...

Prices are in US $
Amp -500 (Plan to replace the Solen caps and diodes)
CDP -200 (I am spending another 200 $ for parts upgrade)
EHP - 250
All cables - 270

Hi,
with customs and shipment involved what was the final price you paid for each of the items in Indian rupees or Dollars.

those floorstanders would be better off being placed directly on the floor

if you really need to raise them please consider solid wood or a granite block
or cheaper alternative would be a couple Kota tiles

Not knowing where your listening position is I am guessing that the speakers are not toed in properly. Also they need some more space from the sides as they are too close to the objects on either side of them. Is this possible?

ALso is it direct sunlight falling on the speakers? You may want to put some thick curtains to prevent this as they could damage the coatings ove a period of time.

You have decent equipment and shoudl enjoy music a fair bit assuming you set them up properly.

What model is yoru Bada? I will look to audition them nearby if there is an opportunity.

Hi Magma,

Thanks for the reply!

Speakers were on the floor initially but due to direct contact with water, wood was chipping off. So i put on plastic stools. What is a Kota tile ???

Hi Marsilians, You are most welcome to audition the setup!! My amp is Bada DC222 and I have changed the tubes to Sylvania 5963. Now i am thinking of selling off those tubes and install different tubes for some change in sound.

hmm i guessed it was the water problem
many indian families have the thing about mopping with water na ?( mine included)

Kota is a greyish stone thats s bit similar to granite but cheaper less aesthetic(many a times its used on staircases)
but it is dense,heavy and cheap
All you need for raising your floorstanders.
Kota tiles are generally an inch think ( maybe you can use 2 each)
i think 1Sq ft tile would hardly cost 50 bucks

i will post a pic next time i visit the stone market

and how much did you pay for shipping?
I think more people here are interested in value for money products. One such company is Vincent in India but I think the dealers are not able to keep prices low enough.

regards

I have mentioned the cost in my previous posts. Regarding the duties, I paid only for the amp rs 5000 only. Rest of them were delivered to me without any duties...
