Like many others I found GR-Research through the good ol' Youtube HIFI rabbit hole and boy am I glad i found it. For over a year I've been watching Dannys videos and reading in this forum for a little over a year now and finally decided to say hi.
I live in Germany and recently graduated as an industrial engineer. I only recently (3 years ago) got sucked into the world of HIFI so my system is still on the lower end consisting of a pair of Triangle Borea BRO3's, a Threshold amp, a FirstWatts B1 Preamp and streaming Spotify over a RPI. Overall I am super happy with my setup but I want to step it up:)
As a student I always lacked the funds to commit to Dannys creations but now that I graduated and started working a I wanna reward myself
. I live with my girlfriend in a rather small flat, which means that anything OB is currently not an option... unfortunately. So after lots of reading I set my sight on the NX-Studios, even though information/ reviews about them is rather scarce.
Before I pull the trigger I wanted to clarify a few things:
1) Bad recordings: One thing I read about the Studios is that they are VERY detailed. Is detailed = revealing of bad recordings? I am listening to all kinds of music and some recordings can be pretty sh... How brutal will the Studios reveal those flaws? Will it still be enjoyable?
2) Subwoofer: In the thread linked below Hobbsmeerkat posted a picture of, lets call them, "subwoofer stands". This solution seems perfect for my living conditions, since i could safe the space of placing 2 subwoofers next to the speakers. Hobbsmeerkat said in that post that Danny discontinued these subwoofers. My question is: couldn't I just get the Servo Sub Kit 1 or 2 but build it in an enclosure as seen in the picture?https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=168181.260
Thank you everyone. Feels good to finally be a part of this community:)
