I mentioned that someone on the forum was having issues and he pointed out your speakers at the shop

Thanks, I'm going over to check out the Atacama stands today to see how they are. How much and where did you get your Isoacoustics for?
I got from IHIFI @Retrophonic $169.

I got the Atacama Nexus 6i in the end. Filled the centre column with atabites and have the option of filling one of the two back columns with sand.

The spikes are placed on 20 cent coins. Some impressions:

1. Will need to test again at higher volume, but initial Impression is that the bass seems a little less than when it was placed on wooden stools before I got the stands. Will try different placement angles

2. The stands have a bit of wobble when I shake the speaker a little. Is this normal? Quite sure I tightened all the nuts and bolts properly

3. Comparing before and after I filled the Atabites into the centre column, the bass improved (tighter). Wondering what effect if I also fill up the back column with sand? Only 1 can be filled as the other one has holes for running cables through

4. Speakers point straight and not toed in. Will play around to see if it helps with the imaging a bit better

just to update on my speakers issue, speakers were sent back to HK but they cannot replica the problem over there. Lucky, the same problem happened in the Adelphi shop and witnessed by the staff.

Dragged till now and I asked for a refund or replacement and they agree to a replacement.

Hope the new speakers won't give me anymore problems.

I always feel intimidated at Adelphi. Last time i asked how much denon m40. They say around S$500. Then i managed to buy from Audiohouse at S$379.

When does your 1 year warranty start then? From the time of your first speaker or the time of your replacement speaker? The 1 year warranty is short, so best not to assume. Do check & let us know.

Enjoy the Kefs
