  1. I can't to the forums today to read the electronic now playing thread but saw this, now I think I'll crank some butterfly effect, Karnivool and Cog! Sent from my D5833 using Tapatalk
  2. Found an eBay Store with heaps of different colours and patterns of cable braids. Hopefully useful for anyone doing their own cables! http://stores.ebay.com.au/FIND-HIFI/PET-Expandable-Sleeving-/_i.html?_fsub=4428138016 Sent from my D5833 using Tapatalk
  3. Sorry for the mini - jack, but I use tapatalk and it won't let me pm Dave. Can I get a link to the simulator by any chance? Sent from my D5833 using Tapatalk
  4. In regards to the wicked one, I've been toying making one of those for two 10's I've got. Would the hornresp program be able to simulate the wicked one? Sent from my D5833 using Tapatalk
  5. I ended up with the HiFiMeDIY Sabre U2. I got it for $68 US shipped, and from what I can tell it's by far the best you can get in that price point. Came up stumps finding anything that was just USB to SPDIF that supported 24/96 (maximum you can go without dedicated drivers for support on android 5.0 devices) without going to $150+ which is wayyyy out of this project's budget. Wish me luck it all works as planned!
  6. Well, I've done HF plenty. Best I managed was Sydney to Darwin on 4 watts with a simple Bipole! That's about it for my input sorry
  7. Well, I found one for about $90 shipped, but it's also a DAC, which is supurfluous to my needs. I just figured there had to be something out there without the DAC circuitry that would be cheaper... That turtle beach only does 16 bit unfortunately. At this stage it looks like I'll be going for this: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/131264331364?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Can anyone tell me how this would work? I'm a little confused by how it connects up: http://www.jaycar.com.au/Sight-%26-Sound-Personal/MP3-iPod-Accessories/Speakers/Wi-Fi-Audio-Receiver-with-Toslink-and-Stereo-Output/p/AA2110 Does it broadcast it's own SSID or does it only work when both tablet and wifi-dac are connected to the same network (home?) My goal is to play my lossless files through my tablet into my DSP in my car which accepts optical input. Trying to keep it all digital before it gets to the DSP
  8. I am after a USB to optical adapter that can handle 24 bit / 96khz without drivers needed (class 1 usb audio device). It's to go from a tablet into a processor that only accepts optical input. I've found heaps on eBay that include a DAC but I don't need a DAC, and space will be limited. Surely there must be one out there?! Sent from my D5833 using Tapatalk
  9. I'll be honest, not entirely sure what you mean by shortwave, I suspect it's possibly a lower vhf broadcast? Being shorter wavelength than hf? Funny thing is I'm a comms tech in the RAAF, have done plenty of radio training and never come accross that particular term. I remember sitting on a hill on ex once in the middle of nowhere on comms tent piquet and someone getting what sounded like Indonesian opera coming through my hf channel... I listened to that for 3 nights straight! Sent from my D5833 using Tapatalk
  10. I went, thought it was 'okay'. Didn't hear about it anywhere, just got lucky that my friend happened to see it in a popular science mag or something and say something to me about it. It certainly has a lot to be improved on but for 21 bucks I was happy. And m4 in the weekends is a car park? The only place I ever have a problem is where the bug intersections are, and even that is minimal compared to week days. I drove down from the Blue Mountains, cruised the whole way in, and got a 2 hour park right in the corner opposite the venue (got there at 12, left at 2 to make it to other commitments, probably could only have spent one more hour there anyway). Bose went with their usual marketing technique, play it louder than everyone else. Made it real hard to demo some of the phones Sent from my D5833 using Tapatalk
  11. <p>Hi all. I've got a usb condenser mic specifically made for testing of speaker responses for tuning etc. I've used it on my laptop fine, but my laptop is huge and lasts about an hour on battery and this is for mainly car stereo use. Then I downloaded an awesome spectrum analyser app on my android tablet but it uses the internal mic which is pretty rubbish. I figured that since usb dac's are supported that so would usb microphones top, but apparently not. I read somewhere that you could just recompile the kernel with the correct Linux driver for it, but then I read elsewhere that you would also need an app that then has the ability to choose a usb microphone. Does anyone know of any apps that let you do this? There's an app for usb audio recording but I don't want to record, I want to real-time analyse. I am accross this site: http://www.studiosixdigital.com/audio-hardware/usbPrecisionMic.html which claims it'll work in Android and that it's been tested with apps that allow usb audio, but that's a bit vague and doesn't tell me anything. Anyone got any ideas? </p>
  12. I think I'm going to have a budget blowout and pull the trigger on the Rythmik1510 and 600w amp. Thanks everyone else for all the advice. I think I might try one of the other drivers and builds mentioned in here later for my PC/Gaming setup...just because!
  13. Maybe I should start asking people to let me come and audition their subs...I've got a few dozen bottles of red and white sitting there not getting used...haha
  14. I'm now at the point where I am keen on the idea of the Rythmiks because I've never heard a very technical sub before, and other people's reviews are generally positive. But coming from car audio where the main goal was to get loud, and not having much experience with really good subs, I'm not sure if I'll actually like a dry sounding sub or not. But I guess it's hard to get really accurate yet also warm sound at the same time?
  15. Paul, what do you mean by the Rythmik subs/amps and horn enclosure. Were you running yours in a horn enclosure? What is the general feeling of cost vs performance of the Rythmik's?
