    Amir recommendation criticism

    The answer to that is in distortion measurements. But I did see in his R3 review he said: "The distortion graphs is still work in progress as I continue to fight the Klippel software to generate proper SPL measures."

    Can you expand which parts specifically confused you in the R3 review? I may have skipped over something when I first read it.

    I just disagree with 'most of the time'. But fair enough, I guess interpretations of his conclusions can be subjective also.

    Amir recommendation criticism

    He seems to ignore measurements in his conclusion, most of the time? Most of the time meaning 6 of 10 times? I don't think that's a fair comment at all...

    It's US$2k per pair for the R3. And his R3 review concluded with "objective measurements are superb enough to give a thumbs up to KEF R3 and hence the choice of panther." I'm pretty sure the KEF engineers involved with the R3 are very happy reading his review...

    Audioengine A5+ Powered Speaker Review

    Intel destroyed by AMD, let's talk like audio

    My CPU (i9-9900K) is actually an important part of my music playback. I use HQPlayer (on the fly convolution for digital room correction plus upsampling to DSD) and some of their newer DSD modulators need running speed (max boost) close to 5GHz for 2 cores. I don't overclock. I haven't seen...

    Which DAC measurements do you like to see next?

    If it had the stepped attenuator volume control like Ragnarok (for no channel imbalance issues) I’d agree. Maybe version 4 !

    Hilarious CNN Headphone Article

    “We focused our testing on the most consumer-facing options, searching for the headphones and earbuds that deliver the most value, so you won't find thousand-dollar options designed for the pickiest of audiophiles.” These these are all bluetooth headphones, which is the billion dollar market...

    Schiit Modius Balanced DAC Review

    This is stating the obvious... that's the whole point of me showing Matrix measurement and me writing: "Matrix Audio seem to have TOSlink input jitter rejection figured out" i.e. (if it wasn't obvious already) the Matrix team have implemented jitter rejection well ;-)

    Not all ESS based DACs measure like this with TOSlink input... despite all having Sabre ASRC and jitter reduction...
