    AOSHIDA SMSL C200 Review (DAC & Amp)

    consider getting rid of your tube amp. that's what will give u "grittiness" and all other bad things. get solid state (transistor or opamp) amplifier.

    Poll for Topping PA5 owners only please.

    Electronics die, sometimes suddenly. Hence, I keep a backup amp - Aiyima A07 :)

    The Matrix Resurrections what a horrible movie...

    hard to disagree. Weak sequel. No agent Smith - new actor. Much milder villain - Counselor. Bunch of weak new young characters - give me back Mouse any day now! No Oracle. But.... Merovingian! :D "Wake up, sheeple! This is for using children!"

    BRZHiFi M3 (MA12070)

    BrzHiFi is a company known to butcher good components. I wouldn't buy anything unmeasured from them.

    SMSL AO200, Lack of bass punch/definition with Elac debut 6.2's

    could it be that AO200 is simply "cleaner"? also, I had ELAC B6 (no .1 or .2) - first version. They are "not great" to put it mildly. Dialog in movies was impossible to decipher.

    Short bout of tinnitus, how do you handle it?

    I support that. Prednisolon will help. Also, for blocked blood vessels there is a simple homemade remedy: crush 1 lemon and 1 full garlic in the mixer (or slicer) put it into 1 liter of water and heat til it boils. steep for 1 hr or more. filter. drink up to 3 times a day. do some physical...

    They list "Output impedance 100 Ohm". not sure if it's for XLR outs? Or headphone out. hmmm.

    Topping PA5 Review (Amplifier)

    there are RCA to mono TRS plugs available anywhere - you will need two. something like these: https://www.amazon.com/Adapter-Converter-Connector-RFAdapter-Subwoofer/dp/B088ZL89VJ/ They worked really well for me. As for "lost 4V input signal" - don't worry. PA5 will clip at 2.6V - its rated input...

    Topping PA5 Review (Amplifier)

    I agree on 3rd one - A07 stomps all over PA5. And the bottome line - save a little more money and get a Purifi or nCore, or don't save - get A07. PA5 works fine for my speakers JBL A170.

    SMSL A100 (ma 12070)

    All-in-one from SMSL to compete with Loxjie A30... Built-in power supply, no optical input, no remote control - big minuses. listed SINAD 86dB - decent.

    Aiyima refuses to replace failed PSU [Now Resolved]

    thx for clarifying. Maybe try feeding your sub via that small 3.5mm to RCA in the back of A07? Or split RCA inputs to A07 and sub? I have not very good Monoprice sub and it simply refused to work over speaker inputs, RCAs were fine.

    Aiyima refuses to replace failed PSU [Now Resolved]

    is your Sony 100W subwoofer powered? or u r powering it via A07? I don't recommend powering any subwoofer via A07. Your next power supply will likely fail as well.

    Topping PA5 Review (Amplifier)

    Update to my review of PA5 and comparison to A07. 1. I noticed there might be issues with E50 Pre volume going to PA5 - do not set it to 0.0dB, set it to -4dB max. 2. I ran ReplayGain analysis of my test track and applied it - with values being track gain -4.89dB, track peak 0.976 3. After these...

    Topping PA5 Review (Amplifier)

    With these findings u never want to run E50 to PA5 in DAC mode then. Only in Pre mode with -4 to -10dB setting. The same does not apply to my E50 to L30 connection, as L30 can accept more than 2Vrms over RCA. The question is - should I feed it with TRS-balanced-to-RCA cables? And would be the...

    Topping PA5 Review (Amplifier)

    I have a question for experts about incoming voltage and volume from E50 to PA5 over balanced. I tried googling but could not come to a definitive conclusion. Pls feel free to challenge/update any points. 1. E50 supplies peak 2Vrms over single ended (RCA) and 4Vrms via balanced -according to...
