This stream auto-updates     

  1. Past hour
  2. I was on such a high after listening to the album, and then this cr*p, should be banned 😩
  3. Probably should go in the streaming thread coz Tidal, but soundtrack so... First time hearing this, I only know of the title track because of John Zorn, and it's one of my favourite songs on that album. So thought I should finally give the original a listen. Glad I did. Another very good soundtrack album.
  4. Of course they have. Are you disputing that spectacles require at least 300 hours of burn in? You must be blind, because this is so obvious to everybody with eyes to see that it doesn’t even require a double-deaf test to confirm.
  5. Or anywhere else in the world except Australia. I believe this sale may be directed at us.
  6. That will be a debate. I started with blue sound node2i, it’s a good dac and streamer. It will cost a lot more to beat this little machine. I then have Ayon dac, accuphase dac. They are just getting better and better. streamer wise Auralic is a good option.
  7. They would most likely be completely different sounding units and if you're used to a 40 year old amp then you may have to adjust to the sound of a new modern unit. Perhaps with time you may prefer the new one?
  8. Yeah man, I was just listening to one of their songs today! Doesn't seem that metal to me though. 🤷‍♂️
  9. I do believe there is such a thing as burn in with audio equipment, but I also believe that the brain adjusts to anything new or different in our sensory inputs over a period of time. How much of what one hears is due to equipment burn-in and how much is brain adjustment is probably debatable (which I don't intend to do), but I suspect both factors are at play. A simple non-audio analogy might be spectacles. Every time I get a new pair everything looks a bit strange though them for a while, but after a fairly short period of time that feeling disappears, and everything looks natural again (especially so when switching to graduated lenses for the first time). Have the spectacles burned in? Well, perhaps there is some effect on the lens material from exposure to light, but it is seems obvious to me that in this case the brain has made some adjustments to adapt to a change in its visual sensory input in some way. I see no reason why the same thing wouldn't happen with auditory inputs.
  10. I confirmed through my own testing this is not the case.
  11. Agreed. The whole point of reducing down to 1 box. LOL. Also quite annoying when there is insufficient number of balanced or unbalanced (RCA) inputs.

  14. I'm not sure there is better, its all subjective. Its all subjective.... and system/synergy dependent. IMO, there's nothing wrong with the included power supply. Here is some real technical data: http://archimago.blogspot.com/2019/07/measurements-switching-power-supplies.html Many users report no benefit using LPS, or batteries. I own the RME ADI 2, its sounds pretty decent to me. I don't want to sound like a fan boy, because there's always something better. The PEQ control is amazing, and means the DAC can be used in more setups. I use the PEQ to tune my speakers in room. This benefit easily out weighs changing dacs, for small improvements. The ability to equalise headphones is also a hands down winner. I would personally go R2R from RME. Having heard the benefits of R2R its hard to go back to Delta Sigma.
  15. As one gets older it makes sense to use a car that 1) Has a little more ground clearance - as we oldies don’t bend as easily 2) Can be used for the grandkids But I personally prefer a more utilitarian design Simply making an SUV version of a sedan/ hatchback is not my cup of tea I would much prefer something like the Hyundai Venue
  16. its a great album. Agree, highly recommended
  17. Reference Recordings release some years ago. Vaughan Williams - The Wasps Aristophanic Suite and Fantasia on Greensleeves Elgar - Variations on an original theme Enigma Kansas City Symphony with Michael Stern

  19. Will have to open mine tmrw Thanks for building some additional record flips/shelves and doing an A+ job as usual. The room is now split between Jazz and non Jazz.
  20. An interesting study to conduct would be around......... why? some feel compelled to challenge others positions knowing that it leads nowhere except to thread locks? Why is it some people can't just be comfortable with their own view when another persons view differs from theirs?
  21. I have had dealings with them. non shipped items, ignored emails and after 2 months ebay inteviened and they refunded.
  22. They may not be fodder for arguments, but I find them worthy of discussion. Some of these things are not at all easy to do right, and worthy of exchange of ideas and experiences. But I suppose people are attracted to controversy much more than to problem solving. A bit like our parliament – instead of trying solve the country’s issues both sides are mostly obsessed with proving the other side wrong.
