I thought I had good sound until today.....A few minor tweaks by Leif and another giant leap forward for my system. This is going to be a late night for me. Good thing my wife is out of town.

Big thanks Leif!!!:p

Sorry it took so long for me to get back out. But we definitely have some good hours on everything now. It didn't take much to lock it in. How was late night listening session?

I decided to continue it this morning. I think I'.m not feeling too well today. I'm working on my own Dr.'s note to stay home;)

Rodney,

I have been a fan of Center Stage footers since I was part of their beta test. BUT their insertion into my new system all at one time, with all new equipment and cabling has been a roller coaster of a ride that has taken 3 1/2 weeks to become listenale. Curious if you had the same scenario.

Like you, I took the plunge with all new equipment and speakers simultaneously. Along with that, I placed the Center Stage footers under all of my equipment except my TT. Your experience mirrors mine with changing sound. At 4 weeks the roller coaster was over and by 6 weeks the sound was awesome. They are keepers in my system. Hang in there my friend.

I am a believer in the footers because their benefits are much greater than their detriments, but boy this was one of the worst break-ins I have had and led to several days without any listening,

Holli82 truly amazing system. Just curious did you consider any other speakers before deciding on the ultra 9s?
Not really. I was actually happy with my VR-9's until I heard the Ultra's. I just think the synergy between VAC, Masterbuilt and VSA is hard to beat.

To your point, I have always liked the sound of Evolution Acoustic MM3, NOLA Concert Grand Reference Gold 2 and Tannoy Westminster Royal.
