  2. You do not have to sell kidney - just get one Goertz foil inductor, unwind the foil, cut the length you need and put some connectors. 2h of work max. Cost ~$60. https://www.madisoundspeakerstore.com/goertz-14-awg
  3. Hi, Could you please tell me the dimensions of the box? Also, what area of Melbourne are you located? Cheers
  4. Today
  5. Oh, why not. More Aussie Crawl πŸ˜„
  6. Appreciate the inout looks like I need to keep saving for CX3C unless someone has one they are looking to sell?😎 Cheers, Alex
  7. When I was going to school, they told us, that an amplifier worked in Class A when it was so biased, that all of its working area was in linear range of its active components' characteristic. Maybe things have changed.
  8. To go back to the start Kdjjk ' when multi analogues were introduced they were a necessity as hdmi 1.1 could pass dvd-a and it wasn't until 1.2 that dsd from a sacd could be passed digitally . Of course hdmi 1.0 couldn't send any bitstream and the ce's like sony had a problem with ''piracy" so conversion to analogue was something they loved .. The vast majority of avr's have an analogue passthrough and it was only the rare upmarket one like Harmon Kardon that put in adc's on the multi analogue ins so bass management ;dsp processing etc could be done in the digital domain before being routed to the dacs .. Most avr's ; pre pro's [or the good ones ] use analogue volume control on a digital soc chipset . I like to look for fine resolution volume ladder network potentiometers like the cs3318 ; upmarket and popular click here to see the download https://pdf1.alldatasheet.com/datasheet-pdf/view/167484/CIRRUS/CS3318.html Other options can be volume pots built into the dacs themselves which saves on the bom[bill of material] .Multi ins aren't needed these days due to needs like auto room eq ; extra atmos dts-x chanels and simplified circuit design . As said its not just the dacs its the total analogue stage including the volume after that's important..
  9. Thanks Wen ... indeed glad to have found this especially classified wince electronics are 230-240v. System is in a largely untreated living room except some canvas paintings stuffed with rockwool which is best I can do and we all know the importance of room accoustics. However, the recent addition of the used Revel Salon 2 instead of highly modded 1.7i made a lot of diffference. Cheers. Richard
  10. This is the Kantu page from 2004. They list the Kantu 3 as the model - with aerogel drivers and perhaps a Morel tweeter if I was to guess from the images - though it's also mentioned to have the wavelet (pointy/ring radiator) Vifa XT25 in some reviews so perhaps there different versions from that era. https://web.archive.org/web/20040225013252/http://www.legendspeakers.com.au/kantuspe.htm It's very hard to find anyone saying anything bad about them! 😎 They sound like crackers.

  12. Currently 250Hz 4th order. Will be playing with different x over points and slopes but haven’t had a chance to do so yet.
  13. Haha, I was gonna upload this one few days before you uploaded. Indeed, she wrote/co-wrote so many songs.
  14. Sorry Snoopy, I failed to mention that I have another 2 mesh points in the house - 4 in total. 2 up and 2 down. I think when I get the NUC I will put it on all the same switch. Then at least the main room would be wired all the way to the DAC.
  15. It could be your wireless backbone between the 2 mesh access points which is slowing things. It has to traverse the length of the house as well as 2 levels of the house. Check the wifi signal strength of the downstairs unit from your study, with the upstairs unit off. That will give you an indication of the signal strength that the backbone has to use. You have already stated you do not want to wire them. Then you may need a third mesh access point between them. Or put Room server and NAS in main room?
  16. One of the best budget phono stages was the Rotel RQ 970BX which can often be had for $100 on the second hand market. Lots of threads on upgrading them as well if you ever get the bug.
  17. The designer Mads Buchardt posted on the audioscience website that he underestimated the number of people that would want to integrate single and or multiple subs but thought that WiSA compatible integration of subs would be adequate but they might look at a dongle for non WiSA subs.
  18. Even he took a little convincing at first though....
  19. Cadenza Black on a Luxman PD-171A. I know I'm gonna approve of this one.
