I have to buy some solder, but I’ve spliced the USB cable with another one, and am now listening to Dumb Things by Paul Kelly. (Very quietly so as to not wake the kids…)
As hoped - despite being the same vintage, they are providing a much more enjoyable experience than the Pro speakers - no crackling, at least at this volume. There is a hum, however I suspect that’s the splicing - will remedy ASAP - just glad to have confirmed that the speakers were worth the punt!
Frustratingly - whilst Rowmote on my iPhone does control the Cube, it does not handle iTunes. I will as such need another app / control interface for my new DukeBox. Or should that be - DukeCube.
(I was going for “artistic” but could use a vignette - plus some polishing of the speakers… and… stuff. Cube on its side til I get the USB cable sorted properly. Need room to put my 17" Studio Display up on that shelf, too. Actually - can Front Row show slideshows whilst playing music? Could work…)
Who needs to look for a new job… or write a novel… or update the household budget… or do washing or dishes… I’ve got a jellyfish speaker playing my tunes…
