    XLR to RJ45 adaptors?

    Haha, my bad, I linked to the DMX version. I didn't realise that there were DMX, AES as well as XLR Mic level versions. These sort of things exist in the Pro Audio market, so was curious if anyone had any experience with single channel domestic versions rather than the Pro 4-channel versions...

    Explanation: I have a friend running Cat6 cabling through out his new home, I'm wondering about the quality impact of running XLR connections across the Cat6 from the Data Cabinet to a specific outlet.

    Looking for digital interface - USB and TOSlink inputs - AES3 output

    USB, Toslink and AES input with AES output with remote control? How about with DIRAC room correction thrown in?

    The Audio Science Review Manifesto???

    I like where this is going. Now we may need (unless I missed it) a "Just arrived? Please start here..." thread that's pinned at the top and includes some of the other brilliant overviews and summary efforts of others, such as this one...

    Chinese JL Hood 1969 Class A amplifier off Aliexpress

    I must admit that for a cheap albeit lower power amp I’ve been intrigued by the JLH1969 amp designs and variants on Aliexpress. I have several high efficiency loudspeaker designs with benign impedance curves that would go well with something ’cute’... Would love to see how such amps stack up on...

    Confessions of a Wire Skeptic

    A wonderful example of everything that is well meaning but flawed in a series of sighted impressions wrapped in expectation biais, and why ASR is such a much needed and valuable antidote to the perils of subjectivism in the audio world...

    So closed box speakers are pretty much a dead?

    Sealed subs all the way! Apply a Linkwitz transform to both blend with room gain (@12dB/octave) and lower the Qtc towards 0.5 for critically damped (most accurate time profile) response. Er, provided the sub is designed to handle it of course. Check out the excellent research papers at...

    Do we need a high quality and expensive power cord?

    My 2c? Imitate the practises of the pros who record, mix and master your music, use the power cables that came with your gear! I have a storage bin of spare IEC 'jug cords' from all my pro gear. I do admit they tend to be a wee bit heavier duty than standard domestic ones, but I'd be horrified...

    Ethan Winer Builds a Wire Null Tester

    Completely lost the context for this in the overall thread, but my thought was the "wife heard" comment was code for: "would you PLEASE stop your infernal mucking around already...!" As for the Wire Null Tester, I'm not sure I'm in the market for one, would be interested to know if it will ever...
