    The kit we bought, our current setups

    This is my current setup... And I hope that in the near future I will concentrate more on listening to music and not on optimizing the system. Distance from speakers: 1,1 m Room size: 2x3 m I have now set up Dirac Live in my miniDSP Flex and I have to say: wow! It is very impressive how...

    What audio system do you own?

    Thank you for your hint. I was not aware of that. Is it technically possible to "merge" two threads?

    What audio system do you own?

    Great system! minidsp SHD is a great device for sure. But did you consider to take the miniDSP Flex instead? It might fit your needs for a lower price.

    What audio system do you own?

    There is this thread "What headphone(s) do you own ?" with many posts. Maybe a similar thread related to the complete audio system might be of general interest. I have not found another thread covering this. At least I would be curious... Apart from the gear itself, the distance from speakers...

    Geithein RL 906 vs Genelec 8030C

    Yes, I have ended up with them. I'm quite happy with them. I doubt that there are many alternatives that might sound better for my specific listening situation. I have only a very little space in our guest room and try to make the best out of it. The distance from the listening position to the...

    Bluesound Node Review (Streamer)

    Are the 1.5TB's of HI-RES FLAC files on a USB hard drive? If so, do you really need an extra box to connect it to your Denon? Isn't there a USB input on the front to connect your hard drive? If you want an extra box, there should many media players being able to read an USB hard drive and...

    miniDSP Flex integration - rather analog or digital?

    Thank you for your comment. The streaming function of the SHS is based on Volumio. I used to use Volumio on a Raspberry Pi. Unfortunately it wasn't very reliable, so I switched to the Bluesound. I'm quite happy with it now, so I don't necessarily want to replace it again. The RME also has a...

    miniDSP Flex integration - rather analog or digital?

    Dear ASR community, may I ask you your opinon. I am planning to add the miniDSP Flex to my setup so that I can a) better integrate my subwoofer and b) use Dirac Live room correction. I see two ways to incorporate the miniDSP Flex into my Current Setup: Alternativ Setup 1 and Alternative Setup...

    Bluesound Node Review (Streamer)

    Wow, impressive setup. :) I think the TV Apps use TV internal DAC only if you output the audio signal directly from the analog audio output of the TV. But I assume that this is not the case here. But I assume that your TV is connected to the A/V Processor via HDMI (or maybe additionally via...

    Bluesound Node Review (Streamer)

    Hard to assess based on your information? What is your chain? What DAC do you use? The internal DAC of Bluesound Node / Sony TV? Or a external DAC connected to Bluesound Node / Sony TV? If you use such an internal DAC, the DAC of the Node is probably better than the DAC of your TV... But just...

    Bluesound Node Review (Streamer)

    I have now bought a NODE and have been using it for a few days now. It works via USB connected to the RME ADI-2 without any problems so far. My impression so far is that its network connection is much more stable than the RaspPi4 with Volumio I used before.

    Bluesound Node Review (Streamer)

    Have you already taken a look at the new version of the Node? So far I have used a Raspi 4 via the USB output with Volumio for streaming. Unfortunately, there are connection problems again and again using Spotify Connect and Tidal Connect. I now plan to stream via the Node's USB output. My DAC...

    Do I need a streamer?

    I would like to stream Spotify Premium (via Spotify Connect) and Tidal (via Tidal Connect) to my RME ADI-2 DAC. I have already tried several streaming transports: Raspberry Pi 4 with several OS (Volumio Virtuoso, Moode, Raspotify), with LAN or WLAN, connected via USB to the DAC; Bluesound NODE...
