    Audio stutters with USB Dacs on Macbook M1 Pro

    Recently changed my desktop setup because I got new speakers and WiiM Amp. I'm using a usb-to-spdif converter between my dock and WiiM Amp. Same stutter. :facepalm: No issue when I had 3.5mm to RCA or streaming via Bluetooth (as I'm doing now).

    WiiM Amp discussion

    Thank you so much. I google and read but there are different terminologies and connection options: LFE, 3.5mm to RCA split, the labeling on the VX7 with "Left/Mono", inputs from amp as well (which looks like different plugs or bare wires); and things like banana plugs are new to me. I couldn't...

    WiiM Amp discussion

    Thank you so much for your help! OH! So it's an RCA cable with single termination on both ends? Because I kept thinking I need an RCA Y-splitter to plug into both "Left/Mono" and "Right".

    WiiM Amp discussion

    Hi everyone, I have a newbie question: How do I connect this to an MK VX-7 subwoofer? The sub has inputs from the amplifier—they remind me PC 2.1 subs that take bare wires? It also has what's plainly labelled "Inputs". They say "Left/Mono" and "Right". They look like RCA. Where does the sub...

    Subwoofer Comparison

    Ah thank you, sorry about that. I think I should've known that from reading the posts but I'm still unfamiliar and the names don't really register with me. :oops:

    Subwoofer Comparison

    Hi @sweetchaos , have you come across any info about M&K VX-7 (like frequency response)? I'm trying to compare it with KEF C4. TIA.

    Connecting T4 dock to Fosi v3

    Sorry, bear with me pls. I'm trying to imagine how they connect together. I'll use a 3.5mm-RCA cable to connect the T4 dock to the Fosi, which has cables connected to speakers. If I want to add something like a WiiM Mini, I see it's got 3.5mm aux in and out, and SPDIF. How would I insert the...

    Connecting T4 dock to Fosi v3

    Thank you very much @kemmler3D ! I shall do that, baby steps. Sorry I've never bought or used a desktop amp for speakers before. I'm now worried that the Fosi v3 only has RCA inputs. Will that be enough (in future)? Eg. if I want to add a streamer like Wiim to the setup—what would that be...

    Connecting T4 dock to Fosi v3

    @staticV3 Do you think I should consider other amps for more options?

    Connecting T4 dock to Fosi v3

    I know the USB will have its own DAC and I'm ambivalent about that since it's a random cable off Amazon. Not sure how the DAC in the USB cable will sound. Oh I didn't know that :( Since the laptop has a 3.5mm, I thought the dock's 3.5mm is like a "pass through" from the laptop. What other...

    Connecting T4 dock to Fosi v3

    Hi all, I got a real newbie question. :facepalm: I have an M1 Pro MacBook Pro > Kensington SD5700T T4 dock > Fosi v3 > speakers. The T4 dock has a 3.5mm in front for headphones. Do I use a 3.5mm to RCA cable or USB to RCA? (I don't use the 3.5mm jack so maybe I should just use that to...

    Upgrading from Soundsticks

    I found a pair of used Polk ES20 on Amazon for $311. Maybe I'll order and give them a try. At least I can return them...

    Upgrading from Soundsticks

    Oh that's right, those were among the speakers I looked for too but I didn't find any around my area. Thanks for the reminder, I'll keep an eye out.

    Upgrading from Soundsticks

    Oh that's great! How's the bass on them? I'm not after earth-moving bass like a club, I'm sitting on my ass working from home. But the kind of music I listen to, some tight bass would be nice. Whatever I get will probably be an improvement to the old Soundsticks.

    Do you like them? What do you use them for?

    Upgrading from Soundsticks

    Yes! I came across them on the forum too! But hmmmm they'd have to be shipped from the EU so I'd rather not. I did check out their B-stock which they're currently out of. Thanks for the recommendation!

    Upgrading from Soundsticks

    Oh thank you for taking a look! The Elac Reference that I mentioned was found on fb marketplace actually. That seems like a good option? The rest I listed are "accessible".

    Oh no, the usual predictable boroughs. I was just giving some geographical context for when I'm looking on craigslist, fb marketplace, ebay.

    Upgrading from Soundsticks

    Thank you for the quick response @warpdrive ! Updating my post: I don't mind passive or active but I don't own an amp right now, so the simplest upgrade is preferred. But I can fit in a budget amp I think, if I have to. So this is the rabbit hole ... Not really into the Vanatoo tbh. I know it...
