    Anyone Here Have an Emotiva PT1 Preamp?

    While I'm waiting for Fosi and Aiyima to put out a RCA multi-input preamp - or for Schiit to come up with a new Solid State preamp - I stumbled across the Emotiva PT1 description yesterday. Seems to pack a lot in for $400. While I have no need of a FM tuner anymore, it checks all my other boxes...

    Can you hear a difference between dac+amp path with 92dB vs. 78dB SINAD? (test)

    Can you hear a difference between dac+amp path with 92dB vs. 78dB SINAD? Quite a lot has been said here about “audibility” of SINAD, or existing/non-existing sound differences between amplifiers or DACs. Quite often we forget to evaluate SINAD of the whole audio chain consisting of a DAC, power...

    Do I need a pre-amp for R3

    Hi all, I'm looking to get some new speakers for my desk. I was initially looking at the KEF LSX, but I can pick up some ex-display KEF R3's for £749 which feels like a good price (is it?). Are they a little too big for desk use? I dont really need wireless/connectivity features as i will be...

    Need analog passive 2.1 volume control

    I read about that dreaded ”automatically going to 0dB/melting tweeters & my eardrums“ problem on a couple of threads today, so I was inspired to start this thread.

    Is the input impedance of SMSL SP400 actually 47k?

    I'm looking at replacing my Topping A50s with the SP400 as a headphone amp/preamp to my speaker amp. I'm curious to know if the input impedance stated by SMSL is real because my DAC (Denafrips Ares II) has oddly high output impedance which doesn't play well with the A50s' strangely low input...
