    Genelec GLM under Wine

    Hello, just wanted to know if any GNU/Linux user had tried to run GLM under Wine. It would be a bit annoying to have to fire a Windows VM just for this.

    Poll: active or passive?

    Title says it all, just a fun poll to know the community better. I'm talking about the crossover type, by the way, so if you bi-amp a pair of JBL 708i with your Crown amp, it counts as "digital active".

    Neumann KH120A or Genelec 8030C?

    Hello, I've decided that one of these will be my next speakers unless these or the 8040 get an update or Neumann makes a 6.5" model in the meantime. But I find it very hard to choose as both: * Have a solid aluminium body (designed to prevent diffraction in the case of Genelec). * Use a deep...

    Active speaker OEMs

    Does anyone know a way to learn about the OEMs for big guys like Genelec or Neumann? For example, I noticed that Genelec's 1238A and K&H's O500C seem to use the exact same woofer (see links) and I wondered who was the actual manufacturer behind these. I also want to know what class D amps...

Anyone with such information and/or...

    As per this post, I made a poll to gauge interest for popular and low-cost USB interfaces that could be used as a casual DAC. Most people now will agree that DAC is mostly a solved problem, needing a good implementation more than a good base D/A chip. This is why products made by big entreprises...

    Another headphone recommendations thread

    Hello, I'm currently using a Beyerdynamic DT250 (80 ohms) that I really like, but I wondered if a strict upgrade existed for it. The main thing I'm looking for is a closed, solid headphone with velour (or something similar) pads and a sound as neutral as possible; at least, without too much...

    Searching for a DAP with strict requirements

    Hello, I am currently rocking a Sansa Clip+ with Rockbox, but it is slowly dying (jack desoldering and battery wear). I also have a Fuze+ in case of actual player death, but its touch interface is horrendous. So I'm searching for a new DAP with the following features: * Physical buttons *...
