    [unboxing] KEF LS50 Wireless

    It could be that the producing the low frequencies are just interfering with the midbass drivers ability to produce clearer mids. If the bass is muddy it could be the room which can be corrected for with acoustic treatment or room correction software, ideally both. To get a real idea you'll need...

    [unboxing] KEF LS50 Wireless

    I expirence the same thing whenever I set bass extension to 'extra'. At the end of the day the LS50W has a 5.25inch midbass driver but can pump out a solid 40hz. Theres only so much a small driver can do and there is a compromise with the midrange clarity in my expirence. I found it was...

    [unboxing] KEF LS50 Wireless

    I'd say the cost is worth it, it will definitely make a huge difference. Much more than cables, lossless formats, DACs, even amps. Having demoed my LS50W in untreated and fully treated rooms they sounded like completely different speakers. Yeah it's pretty expensive for the professionally...

    [unboxing] KEF LS50 Wireless

    Acoustic treatment is the best way you can spend your money for SQ. Absolutley worth it and .a massive difference. You never really listen to just speakers, you always listen to speakers in a room. I can't recommend treatment enough. #1 most overlooked thing in stereo audio. Start by treating...

    [unboxing] KEF LS50 Wireless

    Quick question regarding the LS50W. does everyone plug each speaker into a seperate power outlet? Would i run into issues if i tried to run them both off a single outlet with a surge protector? i ask as i only have 2 mains outlets in my room and im trying to figure out if i can also power a...

    Might be something to do with your amps transformer. My Naim Nait 5si hums like a hornets nest sometimes (with and without my 2Qute. It might be a ground loop or some kind of issue relating to your electricity supply. Perhaps try a different socket or circuit and see if that has any impact? It...

    Welcome to the club! Ive had my 2qute for about 6 weeks now and still loving it. I agree it is in a different league to the mojo. There is still something about the mojos tonality and amp section I love with headphones, but it has no place in my speaker system anymore. As for headphone amps...

    Have you made sure your settings (I think under account or use) are set to 'exclusive mode'?

    Does anyone have any expirence running the 2qute via a stereo amp and speakers with high input sensitivity? I'm currently running 200mv sensitivity (max input 2.5v) and looking at a rega mp which is 164mv (max input 10v). It's a trade-off of extra sensitivity Vs increased maximum input. Would...

    Just some observations and notes from some A/B testing I've done the last few days. Reference: KEF LS50 Speakers <- Cyrus One Integrated Stereo Amplifier <- Chord 2Qute DAC <- {*variable input*} <- Tidal Hifi via {Android app direct/UAPP/BubbleUPnP/Amazon Firestick app) Regarding the use of...

    I second that. Loving my new DAC a week in, very happy with my investment. Its making me want to upgrade the rest of my chain to get the most out of it.

    Definity in agreement. I'm a big fan of the chord house sound signature and was torn between the 2qute for £700 or the qutest for £1200 for my speaker system. Ive had mine for just under a day now and it's insanely good. An incredible steal for under 700. It sounds much better than a mojo...

    Actually i think you were right mate. I put in a pair of RCA cables and the rattling dropped significantly. I then also removed the plastic cap for the toslink input and it disappeared completely.

    My 2qute arrived today. enjoyed the unboxing and looking forward to giving it a listen soon. one thing i did notice is that there is a rattle when its shaken or moved in a certain way. is this normal? it was delivered so im hoping it wasnt damaged in transit. does anyone else have this issue or...
