    Emotiva BasX A-100 Review (stereo amplifier)

    Emotiva has just released the A2M, an updated version of the A-100. I wonder how the measurements will compare? https://emotiva.com/collections/frontpage/products/basx-a2m-stereo-flex-amplifier?aff=9

    Which Arendal speaker would you like Erin to review?

    Thanks for this! Voted, would love to see the 1723 Tower S, but also the heights, either 1961 or 1723, would be intriguing as well! Also, the 1723 1S or 1V subwoofer would be sweet!

    PSB Alpha P3 Review (Bookshelf Speaker)

    +1 I have these as daily drivers on my desk and honestly, for the size AND price, I haven't been able to find anything better out there. That being said, I do EQ them and I can confirm my in room measurements with REW also show bumps at 400hz, 1khz and 3-4khz. But I find it fairly easy to get...

    Subwoofer Comparison

    Great analysis of the increases! Really unfortunate to see, it seems like the gap closed a bit between SVS and the next level up brands like Arendal and others.

    Ending the Windows Audio Quality Debate

    So regarding the -6.30db setting, would that be pre or post EQ? For example, I have EQ APO preamp set to -6.30db, but when you factor in the EQ I have applied, the resulting gain is -4.2db.

    Dedicated Basement Theater - Room Layout Advice

    Thanks, yeah that's what I was debating. Either excavating and gaining about 2 feet in height or even putting an addition on so the room is proper and to my specifications. Although, not sure we can live with the loss of yard space for an addition and I'm a little nervous about excavating the...

    Dedicated Basement Theater - Room Layout Advice

    For speaker budget, probably $7500-10k. Total A/V budget is around $20-25k, that's excluding furniture and any room construction costs.

    Dedicated Basement Theater - Room Layout Advice

    Hi all, need some advice on room layout. My vision is to build my dream 7.2.4 theater with two rows of seating, 2nd row on a riser with 3 seats in each row. The best space available in the basement of my new house is only 12ft wide with 7 ft ceilings (length is flexible and not an issue). This...

    Loxjie A30 Amplifier Review

    If I put my ear to the speakers, the noise starts around 20, but when using IEM's I actually get the digital noise over 10 and both get worse as I go higher in volume. The interesting thing is there is no noise when using a digital input only analog and the noise doesn't exist if there is no...

    Loxjie A30 Amplifier Review

    I just got this in with the recent restock and I have the same issue with the analog inputs, lots of high pitched digital noise. This noise was not present when using my Emotiva A-100 and the same cables. I contacted the seller and they sent a replacement power supply from China, but there was...

    Topping L30 Headphone Amplifier Review

    Is it safe to assume the preamp mode performs just as well if not better than the headphone mode? Would using this as the volume control be better than using the digital volume in my DAC? (SMSL SU-8V2)?

    Ending the Windows Audio Quality Debate

    Thanks @DDF for this amazing analysis! Two quick follow up questions after reading through the thread: 1. There seems to be some contention between -.2db and -4db. Is the goal to get the peak gain from EQ APO to be -0.2 or -4.0 after any filters to avoid the limiter? 2. You suggested using...

    Loxjie A30 Amplifier Review

    Thanks for the info. That is very interesting and great news if it is true! I wonder if this is the case for the other MA12070 devices like the Sabaj A10a, SMSL SA300/DA8S, etc...

    Loxjie A30 Amplifier Review

    Was there ever confirmation if the analog inputs are digitized? I see there are EQ modes so I'm going to assume the answer is yes?

    Topping L30 Headphone Amplifier Review

    I see a lot of reports about the L30 running warm. Mine is in the same boat. What I noticed is that is also runs really warm when I have it in pre-amp mode. Shouldn't the amp inside be switched off when it is in pre-amp mode as it is just passing through audio? Anyone know what the expected...
