    I have this same Panamax power protection device. One of the most beneficial features is the ability to use a 3.5mm "trigger" cable from your pre-amp or other device to trigger the switched outlets on the Panamax. Amplifiers and other devices that don't have trigger features, can then be...

    Bluesound Node Review (Streamer)

    I can't confirm. In the post I quoted, another member said there was a lag / lip synch issue using the eARC connector.

    Bluesound Node Review (Streamer)

    I wasn't aware of the sync issue via ARC. This would have been one of the reasons for me to upgrade from the Node 2i to the Node. Well that, along with 2-way Bluetooth. At this point, I don't see enough benefit in moving from the Node 2i to the Node.

    Bluesound Node Review (Streamer)

    I've been using the Bluesound Node 2i for a few years with great success. The Bluesound app has worked for me without issue from a reliability standpoint. I've only used external DACs with the exception of trying the internal Bluesound Node 2i DAC on one occasion. Now, for my gripes - which...

    Audioquest Niagara 1200 Review (Power Conditioner/Surge Protector)

    Yes, but mainly those with $2,000 speaker cables and cable "risers" for those speaker cables. :eek:

    Audioquest Niagara 1200 Review (Power Conditioner/Surge Protector)

    That's why they have a safety label on the product - so you won't take the cover off and get SHOCKED ! :p:p

    Audioquest Niagara 1200 Review (Power Conditioner/Surge Protector)

    Yes. Excellent request. I was watching OCD Hifiman on You Tube last week as he was trying to make the point that a $22K DAC he sells is the best he's heard, to date. :D:facepalm:

    Magnepan LRS Speaker Review

    Good points that you've made. I did watch the video on Y.T. where you utilized the $15 Parts Express high-pass crossovers in your setup. I took a slightly different approach. I have a pair of RSL Speedwoofers in my setup with my LRS speakers. I utilize the MiniDSP DDRC-24 in between my...

    Emotiva launched new generation of BasX amplifiers

    From the images of new BasX amps that I've seen, the internals reveal a "traditional" or toroidal power transformer and not the switching variety that they use in their XPA series of amplifiers.

    Audiolab 6000a

    I've been using an Audiolab 6000A as a pre-amplifier for several months now. While the supplied 50 watts per channel can be a bit low, the amplifier section might be best suited for a smaller room or bedroom. However, as a pre-amplifier, I find its performance to be very good. The integrated...

    Magnepan LRS Speaker Review

    During this past summer, I had the LRS, the .7 and the 1.7i. I should have never gone to the 1.7i - too massive for my condo. But, with the LRS and the .7, I realized they performed better with a class A/B amp (Parasound A23+) as opposed to the class "D" Crown XLS1502. I've since sold off...

    Isn't it amazing what marketing will do for a product?

    Amp broke

    True. Also, when moving equipment, always unplug the power cable, the RCA or XLR cables as well as the speaker connections. Then, move you gear, then, re-insert all of the connectors. This will ensure you don't put any strain on any of the jacks when moving your gear.
