That's it for about 200 hours of playing time. They sound listenable right now. Nothing horrifying.
I'm using a Benchmark AHB2 amp. Holo May KTE Dac and Holo Serene KTE preamp.
Thank you for the unboxing information and photos.
I thought that the X3 would be the likely speakers for my room etc, but it looks like the M3 or X4 is the more likely choice, so it has been great to see the unboxing and set-up of your speakers.
Because everything in my system is pretty ancient (like me), I will be going new all round, and after lots of reading reviews etc, I decided in the last 2 days that Benchmark AHB2 amp , Holo May DAC (probably May/possibly Spring) would be in there, with a decision to be made about whether to go with the Benchmark pre or the Holo pre.....and then today I read your thread.
Now that you will have a lot more hours up, are you happy to share your latest thoughts about how your speakers are going, and how they are working with the other elements in your system?
Because there will be some time involved in getting the Spatials to Australia, hopefully everything else can be well "run in" by the time the speakers get here.
