    Can somebody check for me if Sony Music app on Sony Xperia plays hi-res audio on DAC with the correct frequency/depth?

    I don’t have a DAC, but I really want to find out if the Sony Music app outputs the correct frequency without downsampling. I can’t find the answer anywhere. There is a common claim that Android downsamples to 48 KHz, but Android 10 and above has full hi-res audio support (24+/192 kHz) per...

    Adding a volume pot to a PS-LX49 turntable

    I just got my first older record player, and I'm looking to modify it. I'd like to add a volume knob. To be clear, this is not a question about preamps, only about what type of potentiometer I need to get (I know the volume knob will not make the phono output louder). I have worked with...

    Can you guys tell whether this MDR-7506 is legit not fake just from the package?

    I'm asking for help before deciding to buy it... I live in Chile and I got these photos from the provider I might be just over cautious but I really don't want to buy a fake one.

    What is the best method to play back digital stereo music on an AVR?

    Like the title says, What is the best method to play back digital stereo music on an AVR? I used to be a major DSD & high-res freak but now I am perfectly happy with CD quality music. I have a Sony STR-DN1080, which I am fairly certain it can reproduce CD quality music well, Anything above CD...

    The weird things about the Sony STR-DN1080

    I seen people praise the Sony STR-DN1080 but I have not see much people talk about its weird quirks and sayings. Mind you this info comes from the web manual and personal experience. The "BD/DVD" and "SA-CD/CD" HDMI inputs have better sound quality over the other HDMI inputs Source HDMI to...

    Downsizing from 5.1.2 to 3.0

    I've been thinking about this for a while. In order to have 5.1.2, I have to arrange my room in a specific way and it's a tight fit. If I enjoyed movies and multichannel music more I wouldn't mind this setup. Initially that's how I thought but now I'm getting sick of having this 5.1.2 setup. I...

    Preamp for three tape decks

    Hi At the moment I'm feeding an RME ADI-2 DAC directly into a vintage Sony poweramp (TA-N77ES) with the attenuation on the amp set to bypass. I also have three tape decks (Nagra IV-S, Revox B77, and Sony WM-D6C) connected to the amp which I use with the amp's second input and using variable...

    What Does DSEE HX AI / DSEE Ultimate / DSEE Extreme Do?

    Without a DSP called DSEE HX AI, audio seems blended with collapsed soundstage. Basically smoother vocals and transient attack is what DSEE HX already had, whereas ‘height’ is by AI… You could try out these audio players with some headphones and mp3s. It should bring out details - restore...

    Mark Cerny (PS5’s Lead Architect) covering HRTF & 3D Audio

    It’s covering the whole system, but this section (40min mark) shows how serious Sony is taking audio in games. I’m surprised this is currently #1 on trending on YouTube, as it’s not like Apple doing a Keynote for a new product, it’s simply Mark talking about how they created the PS5. The...

    Sony NWZX300 - quick measurements

    I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my Sony NWZX300 – a beautiful (yet flawed) little beast. Great interface, stunning build quality, snappy performance... but significantly underpowered. Also, there's no "Enqueue" or "Add to playback queue" function, which is a real shame! And beware that buying one...
