    Fosi Audio V3 Mono Amplifier Review

    Thanks. I mostly listen via Spotify Connect, so I control the volume from my Spotify Android app. The RPI runs moode audio and is set to allow max 60/100 volume. This all works out fine in practice, I was just double-checking with you guys. Also, sometimes when running late, I play music for my...

    Fosi Audio V3 Mono Amplifier Review

    May I ask a follow-up question? I'm still trying to wrap my head around it. According to Fosi, the v3 mono can output 160W @ 6Ω with a 48V/5A PSU. So the formula would be one of these two using RCA and the 25/31 dB gain settings: sqrt(160*6)*10^(-25/20)=1.74Vrms or...

    Newbie question about adding an active subwoofer to a stereo setup

    Alright, plenty of info here. I'll go do my homework based on all your input and also read up on MiniDSP devices. Whether I already have any of the devices in that chain: yes, but I haven't mentioned them on purpose as I am very happy to them existing ones to another room and repurpose them.

    Newbie question about adding an active subwoofer to a stereo setup

    Lets assume this is the chain of devices I am looking at: Network Streaming Device -> DAC -> Preamp -> Power Amplifier(s), possibly without the pre-amp: Network Streaming Device -> DAC -> Power Amplifier(s) First I assume I need an active sub, as the power amp(s) only have stereo out. Now...

    Wharfedale Linton 85th Anniversary speaker review & measurements by Erin's Audio Corner

    I just got a pair of them and can't figure out how to remove the cloth grilles. I will put them back on, just want to look at them at least once in their full naked glory :) Could somebody enlighten me on how to safely remove the grilles? The space around the edge is tiny, I can't even get a...

    Which amp of these two is best for the Elac Debut Reference DBR-62?

    Not wanting to hijack this thread but could someone shed a little more light on my confusion regarding this? I've been googling this issue for many months without fully understanding it. (Not looking to understand the theory and formulas behind it an ELI5 digest would be awesome). I don't...

    What are the highest-quality speakers suggested combining with an Aiyima A07?

    What are the highest-quality speakers suggested combining with an Aiyima A07?

    Thanks everyone, I think I get it: just go for the speakers I like listening to, apart from volume, noise or disstortion at high volume there's nothing to pay attention to. The longer version is that I borrowed a pair of Monitor Audio Bronze 100 and listened for a few weeks in my room which...

    What are the highest-quality speakers suggested combining with an Aiyima A07?

    I'm new to audio, have decent speaker wires, a good-enough DAC and an Aiyima A07 amp. Lets assume the amp is the weakest link in the chain. Can someone give me some examples of “highest-level” bookshelf speakers to pair with this amp? What I am trying to figure out is where the balance lies, I...

    Questions about MINIBOSS PLAYER PLUS

    Thanks, I will make sure to follow your advice. Like I said, I'm happy with the current loudness and quality at most I'll wait for an opportune moment when the neighbours are away and slowly turn the volume higher just to check what the power meter indicates and if it goes further up towards...

    Questions about MINIBOSS PLAYER PLUS

    In that case it looks like this amp was never meant to output 2x50W as this is their power recommendation.

    Questions about MINIBOSS PLAYER PLUS

    Let's leave the quality, performance and marketing aside, say you have a “perfect” amp which should deliver 2x50W – would it need a 50W PSU or a 100W PSU?

    Questions about MINIBOSS PLAYER PLUS

    Yes, that is what I meant. I have set the stepped attenuator to max (it goes from 1-24) and while streaming I have set the volume of mopidy (the streaming app) to 80% (can't go higher due to neighbours). Do you mean to say that the last 20% would push my consumption from 4.2W towards the 25W...
