GT: Using the Oppo 105D with good success with streaming all my music, just curious if the new Aries Mini would do well for a Dac?

No idea. It's not even for sale. But it appears to pack a punch for $500!

Did they up the price as it stated on the web site you posted $399? Regardless at either price it looks appealing, I have just had some super expensive Dacs and the $500-$2000 range there are marginal improvements, but when you move up the food chain the improvements are so marginal it makes most products not worth it.

I plan on possibly getting one to use with my XEO 3. If I like it then I may try a SN2 with it after trading in my U2.

Does anyone know of any similar devices? I wish I could find a "spike" that would work with the device linked above but made out of metal+wood or metal+rubber. I need something for wooden flooring.

Edit: I see the one you linked to is actually nylon?

I mean look at the bottom of the X38. How does Dynaudio simply not sell these for older Focus models?

There's a few more types also

Because of the hardwood floors I'd rather have the rubber style.

If you notice the 2 screws in the outriggers? The Focus only has 1 threaded insert per corner!

This one is rubber, right?

I put 2 5x8 shag rugs in my room 1" thick to replace the cheap 5x7'x3/8" $30 rug that was in my room previously, I have to say that it softened the room a little bit and made the mids a little more present and tightened the bass in the room! Little $150 tweak that added a nice little improvement to the sonics in the room. The room still isn't perfect to what I want... But Ed Sheeran's voice is a little warmer and a touch more body. Certainly not night and day. But subtly. The wife wanted a new rug in the kids living room and I suggested we put the one in here over there, and get us an upgraded rug, I suggested she check out a thick shag black or dark brown, she loves it. I had ulterior motives yes... But I made it feel like it was her decision and something she'd be happy with! The ultimate win-win.

callas01: I have short berber in my living room which will eventually be replaced, I would love sliding castors on my Dynaudio C2 so I can move them around easier but so far I can't find anything. I know they make them for hardwood floors but I need some thing a tad bigger I can slide around on carpet.

Gar - something like this should work

http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00SL1...FSG9JDW1SJSF0G


The biggest thing to know would be the thread size of the insert on the bottom of your C2, assuming it's metric, M8? M10?
