    PSB Alpha P3 Review (Bookshelf Speaker)

    Thanks for measuring these. This is a surprising result. I had the Alpha P3's in for a few months and truly enjoyed my experience with them. At around the same time, I also had the SVS Ultra Bookshelf speakers, and there was nothing I could do made the Ultras sound half as good in my room as the...

    Review of NanoPi NEO2: World's Smallest Audio Streamer

    If all of that is too much of a pain, you can use my trial code to start a Roon subscription. ;-) I have a NanoPi NEO2, and it makes a very nice little Roon endpoint.

    Review of NanoPi NEO2: World's Smallest Audio Streamer

    I suspect that you may have to tell GMRenderer which card to use. This doc has some tips: https://github.com/hzeller/gmrender-resurrect/blob/master/INSTALL.md Essentially, use "aplay -L" (upper-case "L") to get the name of the device…it may not be "sysdefault". You'll need to track down the...

    Review of NanoPi NEO2: World's Smallest Audio Streamer

    You should see something like this: Just make sure the levels are up for all of the "sliders." Note: you may have scroll to the right to see all of them (right arros key)

    Review of NanoPi NEO2: World's Smallest Audio Streamer

    Looks like your USB interface is card 1, so show this: alsamixer -c 1

    Review of NanoPi NEO2: World's Smallest Audio Streamer

    Cool. I wonder if the volume is just down. Try running `alsamixer` and making sure levels are up to 100%

    Review of NanoPi NEO2: World's Smallest Audio Streamer

    When you login to the Neo3 and run `aplay -l`, what do you see? Does this show you the right DAC.

    Review and Measurements of Massdrop THX AAA 789 Amp

    Let me measure the power draw from the SMPS while the amp is off. It's probably very small, but I'll let you know what I see (for US 120V)

    Audiophonics RASPDAC MINI LCD KIT Review (Streamer)

    I'm glad to see that there are more devices out there like this. The Allo BOSS2 Player is a bit less expensive as a complete package and performs a bit better: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/allo-boss2-review-stereo-streamer.22916/ Looking forward to seeing more of...

    Topping D90 MQA Vs SMSL SU-9 Vs Gustard DAC-X16

    I posted several times in this thread about my experience comparing the Topping D90SE and Gustard X16. TL;DR - sound quality is identical, but the D90SE may be worth the extra $400 if you need a digital preamp that can directly drive power amplifiers due to its larger display and lower output...

    Topping DX3 Pro+

    I ordered mine from Apos. They are thinking it may actually ship by the end of this month (October, 2021).

    Topping DX3 Pro+

    I've not heard those big B&W's in ages. Looks like a great system. Let us know how the DX3 Pro+ works as a digital preamp. Output impedance is quite low at 20Ω, so that should be helpful.

    Gustard X26Pro firmware release (F20 beta)

    Cool. Do you expect to release a similar update for the X16?

    Sennheiser HD600 Review (Headphone)

    LOL. I think a lot of head-fi folks are like guitar enthusiasts: they usually end up with quite a collection. All part of the fun of the hobby.

    Sennheiser HD600 Review (Headphone)

    Yup. Although I think I've convinced myself that the balanced cables I'm using with my HD600 and HD650 have opened the sound up a bit vs. the stock cables. I admit that this could just be placebo-effect, but the effect has lasted for six months or so, which, for me, is well worth the modest...
