  1. Using the Spotify app under Windows it does not support WASAPI or ASIO. I set my sound device to 16bit-44k to match its output as closely as possible and with volume at 100%. I've read to believe that this still won't give you bit perfect because the Windows sound will still do some processing. I'm happy to live with it. But, I've never done it but below is apparently a method to get bit perfect from Spotify to your DAC under Windows. https://www.head-fi.org/threads/finally-a-solution-for-asio-output-from-within-spotify.897605/
  2. But haven't you kinda got to where you wanted to go? Or did you really want to use this as a crossover? Have you applied any EQ corrections and if so what do you think?
  3. For your music files if you use a software player that supports WASAPI or ASIO you can get bit perfect to your DAC if that's what you want. The output can change depending on the bit depth and sample rate of the file. This makes the bit depth and sample rate of your sound device in Windows not applicable as it is bypassed. Spotify under Windows, that's another matter.
  4. And why can't the cheapskates do it themselves especially when they can cost tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars to their owners. I'm just waiting for one or a handful of manufacturers to come out with the Ultra Burnt In Series that have already been burnt in with only the best musical tracks so they're ready to go straight away fresh with a new marketing campaign. I wonder if I can patent that idea. 🤔
  5. Yeah unexplained, but glad to hear that it has made the issue go away for whatever reason. I don't know why but I'm not surprised to hear this because the literature seemed to contradict itself as you noted.
  6. Yeah, gave up the sweet spot doing lap after lap.
  7. Just to be clear I still think you should stick to option 1 with the recommended settings for your bass modules and let the DSpeaker correct Left and Right 2.0 speakers.
  8. So getting back to option 2 I think using the DSpeaker 2.0 you can pass through a full range signal to your midrange and tweeters which I think you are doing now without the DSpeaker. And with the gain and crossover set at the recommended settings for your bass modules also pass through full range signal to them. This would mimic what happens now out of the box without the DSpeaker 2.0, agree? Then on the DSpeaker 2.0 run through the wizard bypassing any crossover and phase settings for speakers and subwoofers. Quite obvious you should configure it for stereo subwoofers in your case as your bass modules are more stereo woofers than subwoofers.
  9. OK, there is at least something and I would have been shocked if there was not at least some recommended settings. The whole "adjusted to the specific requirements and operating environment" is so vague that it is to be ignored IMO.
  10. Just my opinion ... but oh no no no. The best setting or at least the baseline which should have been provided is the one that produces the flattest frequency response albeit in an anachoic environment and anything less is slack and sloppy. I presume there's a manual, if so what does it say? Correct me if I'm wrong but these are woofers (something like 200-300Hz and down?) and not sub-woofers per say which makes them even more important to the overall performance of the system.
  11. Seemingly, you'd prevent a conversion from speaker level to line level. I don't understand why you have to do anything; don't Avantgarde have settings out of the box? Yes, I can't see how it help.
  12. OK, understood. So what advantage do you think option 2 might have over 1?
  13. Consider putting it someone else than next to your mains then. I suggest trying behind you (for the reason stated above) and closer than your mains as most if not all of those wireless transmission systems add delay (15 to 50ms is typical). Note the group delay mentioned in the literature ... Beyond our proprietary drivers, the performance of a REL is determined by our unique input filters and amplifiers. 212/SE uses a simple filter-type that is very fast—about 8 milliseconds in group delay– to cross out unwanted higher frequencies to our driver. ... seemingly only refers to just what is caused by the crossover\filter. There will be extra delay added by the wireless transmission system which seems to be unspecified.
  14. Isn't that a switch XLR\SPKR that means one or the other? If so that seems to me that option 2 simply is not an option.
