    Nearfield audio setup - next steps?

    Same here the hissing gets to me unless its a cassette where I expect a level of hissing. The only way appears to be to go and see the speakers and try them out but thats not always available to you in a smaller country or city.

    Nearfield audio setup - next steps?

    Nearfield audio setup - next steps?

    What lenght is your desk? I had the JBL LSR 305 but they hissed as I sat up close so I took them out and now have a set of MA BR2 hooked to a CA Topaz AM10 but I think the monitor audio speakers are too big. I was thinking of getting a 200cm desk as currently its 1400 as I thought it would allow...

    I'd not ask this on any other forum....cables....

    I wouldnt mean to insult anyone but some of the language used in the hifi magazines is hyperbole but I still buy what hifi and Hi-Fi Choice the odd time as I like the porn (sorry I meant the pictures of the gear).

    I have kabel direkt in an attic setup that doesnt get daily use so I went up and took a look based on your post and yes the rca connector is looser than I would have expected. I am open to take advice from people on here I just dont see the need for cables that cost thousands or hundreds even...

    I'd not ask this on any other forum....cables....

    I buy my cables from amazon.co.uk seller KabelDirekt and a roll of 14 gauge speaker wire and deadbolt banana plugs from sewell direct also on amazon. They are cheap and probably im missing out on the transparency, staggering midrange and jaw-dropping bass I could have got if I spent the price of...

    Bargain DAC Suggestions?

    I was of course speaking in general terms about the ability of consumers in the usa to return items easier than over here. The choice thats available to you guys is amazing.

    Bargain DAC Suggestions?

    Thanks, Its easy to get sucked into nice pictures, far out specs and general marketing and over here in Ireland its not easy to get dacs to listen to and return like it appears you can do in the usa. I compared the ODAC and my old Behringer UCA202 the other day and I believed that I heard a...
