    Pass ACA Class A Power Amplifier Review

    As they should be for anyone who thinks this amplifier is a gift from heaven because it has "class A" and "Nelson Pass" on it. It is anemic. Has lots of distortion. And wastes power for no good reason whatsoever. A lot of audiophiles are buying this amp not because they want to get into the...

    Pass ACA Class A Power Amplifier Review

    Yeh, I will never live that down. Good news is that I invented the wireless phone decades back in 1960s. I was young and my father had just bought this fancy new phone. When no one was around, I opened it and was fascinated by all the wires in there. I decided to cut all the wires and see...

    Pass ACA Class A Power Amplifier Review

    First, you should avoid getting upset. It is just about audio and inanimate objects. You lose your objectivity when you speak from point of emotion. As to your point, you cut out the context of what I said there. Someone mentioned the ACA sounds good. I asked if they had compared it to...

    Yeh right. Yeh right. :) Any other falsehoods we have to deal with regarding your intentions? People don't post in an argumentative way because they don't want anyone to believe them. They desperately need us to believe them or they would have wasted their time here.

    SMSL SP200: Do We Get Golden Samples For Review?

    Channel imbalance is worst when you operate the analog volume control at its minimum setting. So you just need to lower the volume enough on the DAC to get the usable range to be above minimum.

    JDS Labs EL AMP II Headphone Review

    No. I mean that the headphone starts to run out of power handling/distorts before the amp does. I rather have an amp that never becomes the limit, whether it is speakers or headphones.

    JDS Labs EL DAC II Review

    Technically correct filter would truncate at half the sampling rate which would be 22.05 kHz. The default filters instead roll off at 24 kHz.

    JDS Labs EL AMP II Headphone Review

    I have not looked but as far as I know, it is just a slight tweak so main ICs should be the same.

    Your point is generally correct although I had an easy time reaching to the back and changing it by feel.

    Nord Three SE 1ET400A Dual Mono Stereo Amp Review

    Usually DAC eval boards lack USB input so they are not usable in the market except for all in one low end ones.

    Nord Three SE 1ET400A Dual Mono Stereo Amp Review

    No it is different. An eval board for a DAC includes the DAC in it. The optional gain stage for Purifi is a separate board/module. I am sure if you put in a decent order for them, Purifi will supply them.

    Pass ACA Class A Power Amplifier Review

    Those sensitivity numbers are marketing specs. So don't run with them that way. Do you have a more powerful amplifier or this is your only experience with hifi?

    You should take a class in better communication so that we can figure out what you are saying. Are you typing on a phone or something?
