  1. The hometheaterhifi site aka Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity publish measurements
  2. I got 4/6 through my crappy computer speakers. The 2 incorrect picks were both 320k. Found it fairly easy to determine the 128k file.. harder for the 320k and wav. Will have to give this a shot on the hifi. Thanks for the link
  3. I appreciate that Keetakawee came here himself to clear things up, and I apologize for not mentioning/giving him credit for his windows 10 tweaks and configuration of JPLAY and Asset uPNP. Thankyou. The reason why it appears the same to me is because it's the same model motherboard, same cpu, same heatsink, same case, same usb/3.5mm board, and probably the same wiring. Keetakawee has already admitted that the hardware differences are the msata ssd, ram, and chassis dampening (and the wifi card which he didn't mention)... The rest is software and service related. Whether it's worth it or not is up to you. The Nimitra is $1395 USD (before shipping), and can be purchased in Australia for $2100 AUD (before shipping) from the local dealer. The $250 AUD delivered price I listed doesn't include msata ssd, wifi card, and ram, which you can buy from the local computer store or online for <$50 each. Keetakawee has stated that the product is "targeted for audiophiles who want good streaming audio solutions without spending time and effort to build and one with tech-savy skills themselves" and that "Fidelizer doesn't sell hardware but streaming audio solutions". I don't have a problem with that. My initial post was what I discovered through browsing the net.

  5. The Nimitra Audio Server (AUD $2100) has a Blue Moon award from 6moons and is highly recommended by Mono and Stereo.. but is nothing more than a cheap htpc out of china. You can buy this for $200 ($250 delivered) from aliexpress https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Mini-PC-Windows-10-Barebone-quad-core-celeron-J1900-HTPC-OpenELEC-Kodi-Supported-windows-linux-Android/109426_32425706564.html?spm=2114.12010612.0.0.KMVjrJ Side by side:
  6. Never heard it.. but I dream about one day owning it or the m900u. There are a few reviews floating about if you google.
  7. There is a tech in japan who keeps detailed online logs of his amp restorations, including those made by Sansui. Worth checking out for sure. http://amp8.com/ Here is an some work he did on the Sansui AU-X1111 MOS Vintage http://amp8.com/sansui/x-xx/x1111/x1111-4.htm (right click > translate to english if you use Chrome) For those who don't use Chrome: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Famp8.com%2Fsansui%2Fx-xx%2Fx1111%2Fx1111-4.htm&edit-text=&act=url Warning: Image heavy
  8. Bought a 2nd hand amp from them a while ago. No original box, so it was wrapped in bubble wrap and packed with bits of styrofoam. It suffered some damage in transit.
  9. No experience with these amps.. but it does seem like alot of value could be had with that second hand Gryphon Diablo for 8250 neg. Worth exploring
  10. You should probably wear a respirator if you plan on doing alot of woodworking. Apparently an increase in air pollution particles of 10 micrograms per cubic meter, cuts life expectancy by 9-11 years. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1470160X17301693 https://www.reddit.com/r/science/comments/6l6skn/a_new_study_shows_that_on_average_an_increase_in/
  11. Thanks. I didn't think it so either.. and this is before your labour and expertise costs. I think people should temper their expectations in regards to price, as it wouldn't be fair to Anthony. The 100w 050 already exists in the $2000 price bracket and from all accounts, it's worth every dollar. If you guys want to turn it into an integrated, you'd probably have to consider that as the starting point.
  12. @Aussieamps The 100wpc 050 is $1990 The SNA special edition would add 3 RCA inputs, HQ volume control, remote, ht bypass, larger case, orange led, etc. Is it realistic to expect you to produce this for under $2000?
