No nothing better than -80 dB pollution can be heard under any realistic home circumstance, and you will not notice any wrongdoings better than -60dB
Anything better than -100dB is purely of technical interest an not an aural problem
I had the same lust. My entry was by having efficient loudspeakers that allowed me to by a second hand low power amp, A-36 to months old, for about 50% of the new price :). Felt quite lucky as I snatched it just minutes after it was posted for sale
Measures well too..
Added measurement with speaker at short wall.. vs speaker on long wall, and some in room measurements compared with anechoic data.
First listening with speaker on short wall( green) and short wall( left speaker only). Short wall giver much more even bass!!
*I use one trick here I keep the...
Well I see people listen to and enjoi The Emptiness by Gojira on very sofisticatef high end speakers on extreme levels, while I cannot bear the massive distorted wall of Sound. I cannot judge speakers on such music myself. I need to like the music, maybe that is the key point.
I can do a reality check quite easily. Baby Grand piano to the right, Hifi to the left, or was it the other way?. A real piano is just real in a some way...I can hear that it is my wife on the piano before I even enter the appartement
For some reason I hate recordings of distant pianos, the...
Beware if your gain structure , not many power amps need 4v in for rated power on XLR input. 0.5-1.5 is more common I think. That will affect the real Sinad values.
I am glad I can adjust my power amp gain from 16-28db to minimize noise. More amps should have that feature
No, but if you want you can add the LCR values of the long cable to the short to make them "equal" ;)
I have 3m and 6m and do not hear anything strange, even if I can measure some small frequency and phase change with and without a long cable, it is too small to be heard. Normal 12awg cable is ok
