    Lamenting the lack of good quality budget A/V Preamplifier/Processors

    I have the same Genelecs and am looking for the same avr pre-amp set up (i.e., HDMI in, L/C/R pre-out to active speakers, and internal output to passive surround/heights). Would you mind sharing the brand/model that you settled on?

    Lamenting the lack of good quality budget A/V Preamplifier/Processors

    Very convincing, thank you. Would you mind sharing which AVR brand/model do you recommend/use for the setup you describe (hybrid, HDMI input, dolby Atmos, L/C/R out to external amps, and internal outputs to surround & height)?

    STAX SR-5 (1975) Headphone Review

    Thank you @Cuckoo Studio for this very informative review! Wonderful to see the state-of-the-Art of half a century ago being measured. If you have time, I would have two questions : 1. Where did you find replacement earpads? 2. Which modern day electrostats would you consider as roughly in...

    NEOHIPO ET30 VU Meter Speaker Switcher Review

    Definitely a way more fulfilling experience for me with VU-meters. By the way, I spent much more on "dancing needles" when I got my TEAC AP-501. And my very very first amplifier was a Philips RH 520 "Fish Eye"... absolutely gorgeous looks do my eyes... and wonderful memories of discovering...

    Thank you! This is exactly the kind of experience feedback I was looking for. If AP-505 can drive LS-50 smoothly, DBR62 should be no issue as well.

    Teac's Hypex Amps

    OK, that’s helpful because B&W 804 shares similar characteristic of low impendance/high phase angle (around 100Hz) so therefore “difficult to drive”. I realize this might be a sensitive topic (ex-wife and all that… have been through that myself), but do you know if the combo delivers without...

    Any experience or thoughts on Teac AP 505 (Hypex)

    @Ron Texas wrote elsewhere that he believes it is NC122MP based. And AP-505 has toroidal power supply, which influences power delivery behavior. That is why I am looking for any actual feedback from marrying AP-505 with “hard to drive“ speakers, and specifically the ELAC Reference DBR62.

    Teac's Hypex Amps

    Thank you and great to hear. Could you share what speakers the AP-505 is driving?

    Teac's Hypex Amps

    Indeed. AP-701 is a different model, much larger footprint. What speakers is your AP-505 driving? Any issues to report? I am looking for feedback from AP-505 owners who used them with “difficult to drive” speakers like the Reference DBR62. At low/modest volume.

    Noted. If you know of anyone that tried the combo, I would be grateful for sharing their experience.

    Any experience or thoughts on Teac AP 505 (Hypex)

    I have the same question, specifically to drive a pair of ELAC Reference DBR 62s. Would be grateful if anyone in the ASR community who has tried this combination could report her/his experience !

    Teac's Hypex Amps

    I’m sure they do, but that was not my question. I’m looking for experience report from anyone who used an AP-505 to drive a pair of Reference DBR 62s.

    Teac's Hypex Amps

    Anyone has experience using an AP-505 to drive a pair ELAC Reference DBR62 at low/medium volumes (background music only in dining room) ? Would be grateful to the ASR community, if anyone has tried this particular combo. Thank you!

    Allo Boss2 Review (Stereo Streamer)

    Below is reply that I got from allo.com when I reached out to them with the same issue. The instructions from GitHub did not work for me, as they don’t seem to accommodate the Wifi dongle. And without WiFi dongle, the signal is very unstable. Have not tried the below fix, because I kept...

    Not sure about that. I recently reached out and customer service was prompt, friendly and efficient.

    Allo Volt+ D Amplifier Review

    Allo Volt was something a few years back. Nowadays you can find equal or better performance for a lower price and in a metal case. Don’t misunderstand me. Allo products have a very good reputation and are well engineered. The Volt remains a good product in its segment. But in the market...
