    SMSL SU-9 Balanced DAC Review

    Keep reading, researching and pushing your own technical knowledge forward. For every hour I spend here. I spend two trying to figure it out! I'm still in the very flat part of the learning curve.

    Naim Uniti Atom vs NAD M10

    As a former Naim devotee who has done level matched, but not blind comparisons. Naim units have a lot of gain early in the pot which makes it seem more powerful. At the same db level, up to a point, my unitiqute2 always sounded "fuller" than other class a/b or Class D amps I have. I believe...

    Records Outsell CD !

    I do understand! The article I posted referenced cd and vinyl in light of the growth of streaming. It intrigues me that vinyl is winning the archaic physical media battle in the growing shadow of streaming and file downloads. I teach high school and younger kids look at cd players in...

    Records Outsell CD !

    An interesting debate has been launched by what I only thought was a curiosity. Given two "archaic" physical mediums....the one that is harder and more expensive to get right is winning out /dying slower compared to CD which is empirically better (isn't it?). I do believe familiarity/ritual...

    Records Outsell CD !

    Are we having a semantic issue here? I used archaic to describe records relative to cd. Archaic to me means an older/outdated/from history way of doing things. Don't most people think that about records, its the old way? Thinking about it, both are archaic(streaming the new thing) AND records...

    Records Outsell CD !

    I understand your point. I've not bought a cd in years, except to replace ones I had already . I have a weird habit of giving books and music media I like to other people. I have been subscribing to Amazon for 5 months. Like, but dont love it. For 15 bucks a month i can hear almost anything I...

    Records Outsell CD !

    You dont' stream cds either really do you? Does Amazon have millions of big Sony jukebox cd players that drop a disc when someone clicks for it at home????? It is interesting that as physical media declines people are clinging to the more archaic format. The emotional connection seems to trump...

    I breed and compete with treeing walkers. Hybrids and registered. Greyhound bred in now and again. Sold several to guys in southern wv back in the day. Guys would use hounds on track/hounds and mastiff/pits to finish. My dogs could finish on their own. Not too often that my hifi and...

    My loose implication was that the prettiness of the form biased my perception of its function.

    Review and Measurements of CHORD Qutest DAC

    Within the last year I used a 2qute, a generation before qutest. Which measures worse. I used it on coax out of Naim unitiqute2 and BS node 2i. Subjectively using my phone app to roughly level match. I thought I could tell a difference on both streamers with and without 2qute. Didnt compare...
