    Woofer and Headphones interaction.

    Greeting everyone, I am having this problem with ear/headphones for years since, where plugging them directly into my PC or any other Phone - is not giving me the satisfaction of Volume, Bass and overall quality in general. I believe it's not a matter of the Handsfree product quality, but rather...

    Separate volume control for speakers and sub?

    Hi, I'm going to get some powered bookshelf speakers with subwoofer but I'd like to control the volume separately for the speakers and sub. Is there some pre-amplifier with this option? or passive volume knob controller with two knobs each for speakers and sub separately? Thanks

    Enough volume but not enough dynamics?

    Hi everyone, I'm relatively new to the audiophile world and I'm trying to understand the relationship between an amp providing enough volume and dynamics for power-hungry headphones. I tend to use a Topping L50 on my desktop setup, which drives my Drop 8XX (300 ohms of impedance and 103dB of...

    Low volume produced by Amazon Music App on Amazon Fire TV Stick

    I have an Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max connected to an AVR via HDMI. The Amazon Music app running on the stick is ver. 3.4.706.0. Several weeks ago, I noticed that the volume of PCM audio streamed by the app became significantly lower than that of the same program material streamed directly to...

    Hello good people of ASR. I have been reading quite some rather interesting reviews and posts on the website for some years now, and I feel confident that some of you will be able to help me out with an issue I am having.

    Is 2Vrms enough to achieve the maximum SPL when using the -10dBV input of JBL 305p MKii? +6dBV = 1.995Vrms?

    Fiio BTA30 Pro

    I'm looking for a good Bluetooth receiver and I see the Fiio BTA30 Pro is probably a good choice. But I'm seeking clarification on the volume control method of the Fiio BTA30 Pro so I reached out to Fiio support and asked about the volume control method. The Fiio site tells that "the BTA30 Pro...

    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...

    Problem with ifi idsd Nano black edition

    Hello, I just bought and tried an iFi idsd Nano black edition with a Sennheiser HD 650. I have an issue with this ampli/DAC. At a low volume, only the right speaker of my headphone works. Globally I think the right speaker is more amplified. Has this problem already been experienced by some of...

    What does "Dynamic" Mean To You?

    Do speakers generally act as a dynamic range compressor when operating well within their limits? Do some act as dynamic range expanders? Is high SPL an indicator of what sounds more dynamic? Even when not approaching limits? Most forums seem to have people who describe dynamics is a term...

    Digitally reducing volume when connecting DSP directly to power amplifier

    My current setup takes all its different inputs into a MiniDSP 2x4HD which acts as my DAC, and the output is connected directly into the power amplifier (main in) of my NAD C352 (80W per channel). Volume is controlled on the DSP. Currently, to get output volume at 0dB on the DSP that's not too...

    Matching devices - impedance etc

    Hi, I have a newbie doubt on how to go about matching devices. I recently had my chinese DAC die on me due to what i think might be a power fluctuation and i went back to my old Schiit modi multibit, feeding it directly into my tired old receiver being used as the 2.1 amp. Well, the setup...

    Good AMP to Pair with the Topping D50?

    Like the title says, I'm trying to replace my Schiit jotunheim with topping d50 + a new amp. When I turn it to RCA and touch the volume knob I hear noise. I believe I have one of those ******...
