    Subwoofer Advice

    I agree with your comments on customer service, but this is one of the reasons they are keenly priced......for me the look is way more important than the customer service. In relation to Buzzing I have bought two xxls400’s and neither has any buzzing, my old KEF sub had to be grounded to stop...

    Subwoofer Advice

    My room is bigger than 4m by 4m and I have never thought my xxls400 is lacking in any way. I had a ported 12inch Kef sub before and I much prefer the xxls400 it just sounds better but of course that is very subjective statement. Just get it and enjoy it!! Personally I have always wondered why...

    Subwoofer Advice

    I have the xxls400 DF, I got to replace an old KEF sub that stopped working. It was a grade B but I am yet to understand why. Finished in light oak, I have to say most people have no idea it’s a sub it’s finished better then most furniture. Performance I am no expert but for me it’s flawless...

    BMW and CTEK charger

    This whole battery thing is a little worrying, I have already bought a new one for my wife’s car but she has always done short journeys and the battery was 5 years old so was not too surprised, also quite cheap. But my F30 I am assuming will be loads more plus this registering business is all...

    BMW and CTEK charger

    I have the same charger and for the same reason, using on my F10 330d, I did lots of research and conclusion was only use charge points under bonnet, as said above! Reason appears to be that if you charge via the terminals in the boot the brains of the car does not register the charge going into...

    What desktop speakers are you using?

    You are right, I was originally looking at the E5 XT’s but just because the step up to the E7’s was small £’s I changed my mind. Currently I use Spotify, effectively on a Echo Dot that connects to the Edifiers, although I use my iPad as a controller.....this works well. It’s been years since I...

    What desktop speakers are you using?

    pic. I have to say those speakers look amazing albeit I agree quite big, was amazed at how much they cost though. As with many of us I find myself working more at home, currently I use Edifier 1800 which are great but would like just a touch more bass....... Has anyone heard these, Presonus...

    NAS 4k issues (NAS/unnraid/Plex)

    I have an old Sony 4k TV, the Plex App stopped working a while ago, I currently use a Firetv stick to watch Plex but my son tells me the Shield is loads better.... I have a Denon AVR as well. He also said to get a Networked Freeview Tuner, I think then you can do everything via the...

    NAS 4k issues (NAS/unnraid/Plex)

    If this is true, not suggesting it’s not, using a Nvidia Shield avoids the bandwidth issue on the TV?

    The Tomahawk MB came back into stock, do you think I should swop? Do not need the leds and only need one HD, so thinking the Pro-A board is fine

    First Server Cabinet for Home

    You may not want to hear it but these guys are giving you good advice. I allowed my son to run a R510 in my garage, it was free, it cost over £150 per month to run. Let’s just say it’s not there now.......... can not remember exactly what we had before but it was bigger! We replaced with...

    **Dell PowerEdge T20 Mini Tower Server - Owner Thread**

    My cashback was approved in hours as well, did not need any special invoice. One thing I can say is this server is very quiet. Memory I bought 4GB of this to make it 8GB.....Crucial CT51272BD160BJ, I would guess you can get 8GB sticks as well. And yes the Xeon chip is supposed to be better...
