    Sold: New S.M.S.L SU-9n

    Up for sale is a new S.M.S.L SU-9n. I purchased my first SU-9n in November 2021, but the unit started making a hissing sound that wouldn't go away no matter what I tried. After informing Apos Audio they RMA'd and replaced the unit with a new SU-9n. I have not used this SU-9n, it is brand new...

    S.M.S.L SU-9n issue

    Recently my SMSL SU9N has started making this awful static noise. It doesn't matter if I use my NC252 or a headphone amp, as long as it's on XLR it makes that awful noise. -Tried different power cord -Tried with and without UPS/surge protector -Tried different interconnects -Tried using both...

    How significantly do minor dents impact sound?

    I ordered a pair of mint Kef R5 but Fedex decided otherwise and dented them. How significant would the dent to the Uni-q driver impact sound?

    Nearfield: 8030C, KH80/KH120, LS50 Meta, R3?

    I can get a pair of any of these pretty similar in price, but really not sure which to go for. I like neutral sound, have a SVS sub already. This pair will be used with my desktop completely near field, typically 0.5-1 meter from wall, and myself about that close to them if not more. Thanks, Tom.

    Hum/Hiss on SMSL Sanskrit 10th MK II

    Anybody else experience this issue? I notice it with my Magni Heresy and with my Beyer A20 headphone amps. It's even more noticeable with my Schiit Vidar and Magnepan speakers. I thought it was my Beyer A20 at first, then realized the hum was gone when I used my Topping D90 with it. Problem is...

    Opposite of ASR?

    I'm curious what is the opposite of this site? I love the science here and measurements, but what is the opposite that likes distortion and thinks it sounds "musical audiofool blah blah"? Maybe head-fi? I've seen them recommend trash (audio-gd) products before. Thanks, Tom.

    Hypex NC400 vs NC1200 vs 1ET400A?

    All of them seem to cost around $1200-$1600. Any benefits on one of the other? How about the cheaper NC500? Looking to power my Magnepan 1.7i, heard they like a lot of current. Also considering saving for AHB2, but the $3000 price seems too rich for me. Thanks, Tom.

    AHB2 vs A21+

    Anyone have measurements of the A21+? Amir's superb review of the AHB2 is great, and I have fond memories of the Benchmark DAC1, so as a company I'm leaning that way. Only thing that concerns me is the fact that I'm a POS that seems to like noise. I'm not loving the D90, I think I'd rather...

    Hypex faulty power switch, is this issue common?

    I ordered a Audiophonics MPA-S250NC (Hypex NC252), but when it arrived I noticed whether the power switch was on or off, the unit still powered on and played music. Had a loud audible hum as well. Thought nothing of it, until I went to move it from my office to my listening room and it shocked...

    Used Modulus 686 soldering look okay and wiring?

    Hi, After reading some threads it seems there is a real risk of buying something that is poorly soldered, wired, grounding off etc, so I was wondering if anyone can tell me if these look ok? Seller wants $1800 and I think it's worth it for Class AB, great measurements, and large power output...

    March Audio or Audiophonics?

    I've been looking at March's P122 (NC122MP) and Audiophonics NC122MP amps. The price difference is insane, $652.80+$80 shipping total of $732.80, vs $416 USD (307.50 euros + 41 euros for shipping). I have to ask, will the Audiophonics version measure that much worse? P122 beat out the NC500...

    Which sub $800 amp for Tekton Lore Reference?

    I finally ordered my dream Tekton Lore reference speakers, but I don't know if I should go Schiit Aegir or maybe just class D Nord One MP NC502 or even March Audio's P122? For my home music setup my Tekton's will be used with a SVS SB2000 sub and Soncoz SGD1 DAC. Thank you, Tom.
