    Sound Devices MixPre-3 II Multichannel Recorder Review

    This is really disappointing. I expected at least decent performance given price and reputation of sound devices.

    Genelec 8320/8330 + 7350 or Neumann KH80/120mkII + KH750

    I would prefer GLM to MA1 hands down. But you probably calibrate not that often. The KH750 is hard to beat in a setup like yours. I am more than happy with with KH120/KH750 on/under my desk. Did not apply MA1 calibration, though I have everything in place to do so. Did not feel I need it.

    [Update] Can Flac files with different audio MD5 be identical?

    Different metadata, maybe. Different copyright notes are enough to change md5.

    Can we retire “WAF”?

    C'mon. Really?

    I measured 10 subwoofers.

    Amazing work. Glad I had no choice than to buy the KH750 to go with the KH120. The diy sub looks great, though.

    HDMI to S/pdif converter audio quality

    I have no idea. I think it is USB in, everything else out only.

    Room Correction & DSD

    You need to convert DSD>PCM before you can apply DSP. DSD is transport only.

    Sabaj A20d 2023 DAC & HP Amp Review

    I do not think so. 4.4 and 6.3 mm sockets provide the same (unbalanced) signal. Balanced out on the rear of the unit is meant to drive active speakers or a preamp. I use the 6.3 mm socket to drive a HE1000 Stealth with absolutely no issues in high and low gain mode.

    Weiss DAC501 Streamer and DAC Review

    That's outside looking in. Inside the respective system people might feel different as to "fair" and "good". Just saying.

    SOS… Lynx Hilo - Imperium - KH750 - KH80

    Not sure what this is supposed to fix.

    SOS… Lynx Hilo - Imperium - KH750 - KH80

    We are talking give and take 2 inches at 5 feet distance - this doesn't make much a difference, given the directivity of this speaker. More of academic interest, not in room.

    SOS… Lynx Hilo - Imperium - KH750 - KH80

    Again, please use a setting between 0 and +6dBu. Digital volume control is not a bad thing when done properly. Lynx probably does it pretty well. Give it a try to get sort of baseline.

    SOS… Lynx Hilo - Imperium - KH750 - KH80

    The manual begs to differ. There are more reasonable options for output (right column below). Also please note that +24dBV is maximum input for the KH80, not recommended. As the manual states "these are best set to a value that matches the input calibration of the device connected to the Hilo’s...

    SOS… Lynx Hilo - Imperium - KH750 - KH80

    What are the Lynx output options? What is the Neumann input setting? Why the Imperium NG? My take: Unreasonable level. 192 > 48 don't matter at all. Though: What is native SR?

    Sabaj A20d 2023 DAC & HP Amp Review

    Received mine three weeks ago. Works just fine on a PI3 running ropieee fed by roon. No problems whatsoever. A joy to use with HE1000 stealth. Can you share details on computer, operating system etc. If it's broken, why not just return it.

    Sabaj A20d 2023 DAC & HP Amp Review

    1.) Compatibility with Wndows 7 does not mean compatibility with every system running Windows 7. 2.) This is an XMOS driver, not a Windows 7 driver. 3.) Is the driver needed to use the DAC, or does the DAC work as a class compliant device not needing a driver to operate?

    Current version of Windows is 11, Windows 10 ist still supported by Microsoft, Windows 7 is not. Get over it.
