    Extreme Snake Oil

    Pretty good hearing for a 78 year old reviewer. Here is his other gear. https://www.enjoythemusic.com/magazine/reviewers/rickbecker.htm Every SR product there is, he is "reviewing". Of course a "friend" and a fan boy. Much of what is wrong with this hobby manifests in cases like this.

    Apollon Audio AS1200 Review (Stereo Power Amplifier)

    The 1200as2 module is 490USD (463Euro) each direct from icepower, but I think one must be registered as a company. https://icepoweraudio.com/products/amplifier-power-modules/as-series/#1200as2-popup A decent chassis (100USD incl. shipping), some connectors (50USD) and cabling set (34USD), good...

    Topping E30 II DAC Review

    Thanks. Would you be so kind providing link(s) to the whole discussion? I sure missed that. Just came across their "philosophy" regarding filters. https://velvetsound.akm.com/eu/en/stories/meister/meister-tutorial01/

    Topping E30 II DAC Review

    A quick question regarding the different filters provided. These looks like 48khz sampling for me and not 44.1? F2 and F6 seems identical linear filters with great attenuation at around 24khz.

    RPi + CamillaDSP Tutorial

    Nice writeup. Using icepower 1200as2 amps myself. Auto-off without signal is implemented which is a great feature. However it is "hardcoded" on the modules itself to turn off after 13minutes without signal.

    Apollon Audio AS1200 Review (Stereo Power Amplifier)

    Good to hear. Will let it settle for some time. One has played for a couple of hours. Actually it got a little better only after 1 hour. Its the only one that is finished. The others have just been powered on to see if the transformer is buzzing.

    Apollon Audio AS1200 Review (Stereo Power Amplifier)

    Have 5 1200as2 modules. Every one has some transformer buzz. Some more than others. One is almost totally silent. Asked icepower about it but have not gotten a response yet.

    PS Audio PowerPlant 12 Review (AC Regenerator)

    Crap, it should have an audiophile fuse to work better. Of course this is Ted Denney´s facebook group. Total freakshow there.
