    I have all Olive Naim 01/cds2/52/135s in very large room.
    Currently use Focal 1038 be’s- anyone have an opinion on slotting in Titan t88 speakers?
    Have not heard them as yet.

    I run T88s - had them while I was using a NAC52 also, though not with Olive amplification (NAP300 DRs, and in an average-sized room). They’re superbly musical, comfortable with all manner of musical genres and not in any way fatiguing. Just a lovely way to spend a few hours in my experience. They go low too.

    Thanks dom- hope to be trying them in my home soon. I have huge room- my Focal’s sound good and can really fill the room well- hoping the Titans are good upgrade.
    I understand their looks are not for everyone. From the pics I think they look interesting. Your thoughts on their appearance?

    Well, they replaced Shahinian Hawks in a room I don’t have to share - so looks aren’t really a consideration! They’re quite imposing ‘in the wood’, but I sit about 2.5 metres away. In a bigger room I think they’d be easier to accommodate, and I quite like the functional aesthetic. Two separate elements to each speaker makes setting up a lot easier - and having both cabinets vent through the controlled gap between them is a clever way of easing room placement.

    Dom, u use what speaker cable? Which box gets the speaker cable- top or bottom?
    Difficult to set up by one person?

    The design makes set-up a lot easier. No problem doing it on your own. I originally used NAC A5, single run and think I settled on connecting to the bass cabinet having experimented with both. I now use a pair of amplifiers (absolutely not necessary!) so individual cable runs to each of the cabinets, again with NAC A5 and more recently TQ Ultra Black.

    Not exactly on track, but a mate & I will soon be demoing the 606’s & maybe the 505’s along with Vitus amps.
    Should be towards the end of this month, once my man-flu has gone.
