    What items have you purchased as a result of ASR?

    +1 Was also interested in the Klipsch. CCA is sometimes on offer "refurbished" from 1-day here in NZ. That's where I got mine! Works a treat with my Vortexbox via Squeezer. Was not impressed that you needed to go to Premium to play music off YT Music, compared with the Chromecast you plug in the...

    Windows 10 20H2: new issues with USB latency never experienced before

    Thanks for posting this. My ancient Lenovo S20 Xeon w3550 was having similar issues on Foobar 2000/ASIO4ALL v2.14/Apple Dongle - Model 2049 since I updated to 20H2. I'd forgotten about LatencyMon until you mentioned it; giving it a run saw quite similar issues to you. Doing a Windows Update...

    Is there a specific music track that you always use to test new amps/DACs/headphones?

    Stereos We Used to Have (Fun)

    My first audio wasn't mine, but the one my brother left at home after going back to college - Technics SLB-2, VMS-20E, New Acoustic DIMENSION 3030 and AR25 speakers.
