    Set-Up around Eversolo DMP-A6

    Hi all, I’m a newbie who has read through the forums here the last couple days to step up from a Denon M40 to a proper HiFi setup. I mainly stream classical music. I’d also use the speakers for our TV. The room is fairly small (3x4m) but with high ceilings and open to an adjacent larger room...

    I bought this amp to drive speakers in my basement rec room

    I bought this amp to drive speakers in my basement rec room. I was curious if the little box would do the trick, but based on the wonderful reviews I took a risk and bought it. As it turns out, there was no risk at all with this purchase. The Fosi Audio Amp does an absolutely perfect job driving...

    Tidal HiFi vs HiFi Plus: Can you hear the difference?

    I have been using Tidal HiFi Plus for a while now. I used to listen to MQA all the time, and lately decided not to as I read a few articles against MQA. My new DAC (RME) is not supporting MQA either. This made me think that I might need to downgrade my Tidal account to HiFi only. ($10 vs $20)...

    Dubious about SPL used by objective testers

    link I am dubious about at least one aspect of this methodology. For consistency, all speakers should have the lower-decibel chart in their review. Leaving it up to humans to decide, subjectively, if "it appears that the speaker is being strained beyond its output abilities at this level"...

    Genelec 8030 Pair sounding bad in my room, better HiFi speaker alternatives?

Wanting to sell the Genelec pair and get some speakers that would sound great in a relatively untreated room...
