    Using Tidal Connect on a raspberry pi without Volumio

    Well you have to give bluesound some credit. The first node still works and was released a very long time ago.

    Using Tidal Connect on a raspberry pi without Volumio

    Thank you for your explanation, and I understand the business value proposition for a subsciption, especially with the rapidly changing services you need to connect to. I ended up buying a WiiM Mini (and pro) because I did not want the hassle anymore, but I have nothing against the volumio...

    Ideal speakers for a small room (with sub)

    I'll definitely look into these options. Reason for this post was considering the Kef R11 meta, but since I did not like the R3 that much I am open for other suggestions. Since the room is not so big I think there are more suitable options.

    Ideal speakers for a small room (with sub)

    Yeah, but I'm not a near field listener. I'd be okay with active monitors but I do really want wide dispersion I guess. Listening distance is about 2 meters.

    Ideal speakers for a small room (with sub)

    Netherlands, max 10k euro (long term project) but absolutely not necessary, new or used are both fine.

NC252MP powering a pair of focal chora 816. Crossover currently at 60 Hz All of this is in a small...

    Focal Chora 816 Speaker Review

    Maybe someone will know: if you look at the estimated in room response and you want to crossover the sub without a hi pass filter on the speakers. What would crossover would you set (low pass filter on subwoofer only).

    What is the point of CD rips?

    For me it's just emotion, I like having CD's and supporting bands. That's why I buy bandcamp albums of smaller artists I like. I hear no difference between releases (not enough to matter anyway). I have ripped my cds and stored them, accessible through LMS. There are 0 reasons to use this...

    Using only 1 driver of a 2 x 10" push/pull (enclosed) subwoofer, technical explanation?

    I'm considering replacing the drivers with actual subwoofer drivers and leave the sub connected in the original way. With an internal volume of 65L, any suggestions for ideal drivers?

    Is this as good as it gets?

    I would highly recommend to first time allign your subs and then do the dsp. You'll thank me later

    Is this as good as it gets?

    Regarding your original post: you have endgame material, you can always go better but there is so much more to be done with equalizing. So my advice would be to spend time and not money. Just for my understanding: 1. Did you time allign your subwoofers properly? There's an easy way with DIRAC...

    Using DSP in Roon with 2.1 setup, what device?

    I don't think it makes any audible difference, since it's all digital.

    Using DSP in Roon with 2.1 setup, what device?

    I ended up ditching Roon for LMS with the material skin. All the same features without the high costs. DSP through the MiniDSP flex (2.1) and downstairs with the WiiM Pro. I end up knowing that 5 eur/usd is kind of the max for a software subscription for me.

    Is the DAC of the bluesound node 2 so bad you can hear it?

    Well, yeah although I'd say yes to this many a time when it would come to cables, proper measuring dacs, proper meausing amps etc. I'm actually barely able to tell the difference between mp3 and lossless (very inconvenient since I have a lot of cds). But yeah sure I'm aware, but have a...

    Is the DAC of the bluesound node 2 so bad you can hear it?

    Yep, but since I am way too lazy to do it properly, this is all I got

    WiiM Pro Plus Streamer Review

    You can say that there is not enough info to judge. What exactly broke in his device that he was (twice?) able to repair himself? Unlikely yes, impossible? We need more date.

    WiiM Pro Plus Streamer Review

    It's made from plastic so it doesn't heat too much
