    Chord DAVE Measurements (With MScaler) by GoldenSound

    Please help me identify Optical Audio Skipping/Stutter

    It's probably jitter related on the optical out... and unfortunately it seems the A30 doesn't have a setting to adjust the DPLL on the internal DAC (ES9023) which allows adjusting the amount of jitter filtered (or rejected) from the input. Can you not go back to USB? JSmith

    Optical cable issues

    Hi, welcome to ASR. One of the stranger things I've read that's for sure... apart from calling an exorcist, hard to say. ;) Are you sure you don't have some auto-volume activated on the soundbar? Maybe when it detects the sound of the water (loud is it?) it increases the volume to...

    Topping L70 Headphone Amp Review

    So you're saying listening before or after changes the AP results? *insert twilight zone music* ;) Well at least there is some progression... as we've gone from "did you listen to it" to "when did you listen to it". JSmith
