Just ordered some chassis from them. I hope that your story isn't their typical case
I found their shipping fees quite strange, being forced to pay both exclusive shipping for each chassis and then again for the whole shipping.

Best

I will be very interested to hear how you think the actives compare to the passive set up. Will you post impressions ? Maybe start a thread on it?
Thsnks
Earl doesn't give it out, but only set if for those who order finished active speakers.

I will probably share my impressions at a forum when I get there.

Thanks, please do. I hope that things soon will be sorted out on your side.

We did a GB of NCore enclosures a while ago and everything went smoothly.
One parcel (out of ~12 packages sent out) was stuck at a local post office for some reason and was returned to sender (i.e. SiliconRay) after a week or so; but they were fast to re-send at no extra charge.

There was an even more popular GB over at Audiocircle (?) which also went good as far as I know.

I'd say there's nothing to worry about. Overseas shipping can be like that sometimes.

Apparently a glitch with USPS. My apologies for bringing Silicon Ray into this.

Well, that explanation doesn't really make anything clearer. Frequency is the period of a signal. It has nothing to do with modulation. What modulation are you talking about? And how is this magical "wave frequency" different from normal, regular "frequency"?

The A/C power line has the frequency of 60 Hz in the US, 50 Hz in Europe. The A/C power line signal is not modulated in any way (apart from the frequency and voltage variations in the grid, but they are not "modulation" in the traditional sense of the word.

I have to say it does sound a bit like you are throwing technical terms around without actually understanding what they mean - that might be a misunderstanding on my part, but that is how it reads to me.

I agree. I would even go further and say that some of the latter posts here made me suspect covert financial affiliations.

Now that's anathema to the subjectivists on this board! Surely it will solicit a response from the hard core that say, "measurements don't tell the whole story". Personally, I think the measurements tell more about the device because they ARE a known quantity. Whereas, as you so well point out, the other factors are highly variable and different for every single system. If how it measures doesn't translate into how it fundamentally sounds, we all might as well give up and go home and buy a 2-transistor radio and call it HiFi.
