Thanks again Tom, I use Nordost Sort Fut under my Carmel 2's. They made a big sonic improvement over stock spikes. Instruments and vocals became more precise within the sound stage. Very adjustable and easy to use. Highly recommend.
Thanks tom_hankins, Yes I am using the DAC in the Makua and really love it. While looking to upgrade my preamp and DAC I was intrigued with the Makua's one box solution. I don't have a dedicated listening room so space was a big concern for me. I researched for months and did an in-home demo with the Makua before purchasing it.....also I really appreciated your help with the many questions I had for you (being a YG owner) before I bought the Carmel 2's.
Thanks hallock01, My room has always produced too much bass in the 36-42hz area. Going from a ported speaker to the YG sealed box design with the addition of the ASC traps helped quite a bit. The YG's are lean in the area my room is bass heavy. The result is a smoother frequency response...very happy with the YG's. Also this is my living room so if I have non-audiophile guests over I can move the traps to the bedroom. Don't like the idea of permanent room treatments.
