    Living With Linkwitz

    thanks! I've browsed a bit the thread at oplug, and see a lot of solutions. The delay problem is a good point. It seems a 4x10HD is going to be required in any case.

    Living With Linkwitz

    I've been contemplating building a LXmini setup for a while, not making up my mind if I want to add one or two subwoofers or not at some point. I keep using this excuse to procrastinate and postpone buying the kit... I have what may sound like a dummy question and a no-no approach to more...

    Ideas for in-wall cabling

    conduit with pre-run fish tape is a great idea. bonus question: If I run HDMI fiber optics, do I need special outlet plates? Are HDMI optics working only with specific device that would power them?

    Hello there. I have my wall opened currently to run some cat6 cables. in my living room, I am planning on running 2 HDMI fiber cables from one side of the room to the other to carry signals to a projector or another integrated amp. 2 Cat6, 2 HDMI, what else would be useful to have? juste a few...

    adding VU-meters in the audio chain?

    I think one day I’ll cave in, spend the money and get the RME. It seems to be a nice piece of equipment from many angles.

    Canjam SoCal Headphone and Audio Show 2019 Part 2

    It was also my first CanJam this year. I believe you can get a good sense of the overall performance of the gear, especially the headphones themselves. For amps and DAC it may be much harder. I tried many headphones in one day. It allowed me to make my own rough opinion on some of the models I...

    Canjam SoCal Headphone and Audio Show 2019 Part 2

    Can't wait for your review of this. I almost bought the Audeze equivalent solution before... Would be interested to see how it integrates with system using the Ambisonic format, and how much power is required on the host.

    Any solution to avoid PC interferance?

    I had a lot of USB noise from my Mac mini 2012. And maybe also EMI noise, and ground issues from the outlets in the house. The tube amp was picking but vibrations of my 4-drive NAS My Oppo portable amp was a pass through of the usb noise. It was a nightmare I did many things to try to fix: -...

    Canjam SoCal Headphone and Audio Show 2019

    Thanks for your notes And you successfully avoided taking pictures of me. So I hope I was not one of those holding the seats too long. Always tried to check behind my back once in while to see if there was a line. Surprisingly there was only a few times that somebody behind me was waiting. I’d...

    Should Amir go to Canjam in Southern California?

    Would be fun to meet face to face the one I would blame if my wife was asking for buying in the last 6 months an SMSL DAC, an Atom and a THX.

    Review and Measurements of New JDS Labs Atom Headphone Amp

    May be difficult to compare if you use the volume in Windows as a reference. On my Atom, sending bit perfect 100% volume from the player to the DAC, 100% volume on the DAC (a smsl su8), listening on a Audeze LCD-XC (~30ohms planar). Most of the time it’s between 10 and 11 o’clock for jazz...

    adding VU-meters in the audio chain?

    I am all about entertainment not precision in my case. Just something that looks good, that’s analog and moves with the music like my brain is. I’ll seriously consider the kits on eBay. I may not need huge size since I listen to music at my desk, with the equipment right there. I’ll keep...

    adding VU-meters in the audio chain?

    The Mkintosh would fit nicely on one half of my desk as a warmer for the headphones gear. And would help for warming me up in the winter and the foggy summer around here.... Is that really impossible to find vu-meter-in-a-nice-box? Sounds like such a missed opportunity for all those little...

    adding VU-meters in the audio chain?

    I also would like more a dedicated device both for the reactivity/latency and for the look. I am exploring he apps on iOS to repurpose an old iPhone for instance. But so far I can’t find one that can use an external source. I wonder also the type of cables I would need to convert the stereo rca...
