  1. I got around the Apple TV issue by running the optical out from the TV to my DAC. Do you want to watch the Apple TV from both TV's? Otherwise a HDMI audio extractor would also work, however you would be relying on a cheap DAC implementation in the splitter.
  2. Some more mark audio porn. I made these for my parents. They are Alpair 10's with a Queensland Maple baffle and tassy oak veneer.
  3. I built a pair of Pensil 7's using the Alpair 7 a few years ago. I wanted a DIY speaker that didn't include crossovers. They are my main speakers in the lounge room now (all the other Paradigms in the picture are in my new home theater room). I am still amazed just how good they sound. I have now paired them with a Topping D50s DAC and DIY TPA3255EMV Power Amp. The front panels are Spotted Gum heartwood, the veneer is spotted gum and all the enclosure is made of 18mm plywood (including behind the front baffle).
  4. If it doesn't need to be an integrated amp, what about the Behringer A800
  5. Further information: Integra DTR-30.4 4K AV Receiver working perfectly. See specs AMPLIFIER: # Channels 7.2 Power (8 Ω, 20 Hz–20 kHz, 0.08%, FTC) 100 W/Channel
  6. Further information: This is an amazing sounding streamer and DAC combination. I used Volumio installed on the Raspberry Pi 2B and the mobile app to control and stream my networked music. Included: Raspberry Pi 2B, Allo Kali and Piano 2.1 DAC Allo Kali Kali is compatible with Sparky and RPI Reduces jitter to less than 4 pico seconds The basic design includes FPGA based FIFO board With 45.1584/49.1520 MHz Ultra Low Phase Noise Oscillators I2S input: 44.1 KHz, 48 KHz, 88.2 KHz, 96 KHz, 176.4 KHz, 192 KHz , 352.8KHz,384KHz- 16bi
  7. Further information: Vero 4K Kodi Box Comes with remote control and Australian 5V power socket Specs Quad Core 1.6Ghz 64-bit processor 2GB DDR3 RAM and 16GB eMMC storage [1] Built in 802.11 ac/n/g/b WiFi with Bluetooth 4.0 IR and RF receiver 2x USB 2.0 ports micro SD card slot 3.5mm analogue audio output Optical (SPDIF) audio output HDMI 2.0 with CEC (control your Vero 4K + with your TV remote) Dynamic Refresh Rate adjustment (with 23.976/24p support) Gigabit Ethernet 4K, H265
  8. Below are some pics of the crossover. I did a little test of the F1 fuse with a piece of wire by connecting each end. It worked initially with the tweeter working. However, once I put the cross over back in and reconnected everything its stopped working and I couldn't replicate it again. So, it could be the fuse?
  9. One of my Paradigm Monitor 7 v6 speakers tweeter stopped working. So I ordered another one and replaced it, which was very straight forward. However, the new one doesn't work either. So, I wired the old tweeter to the amp, turned down the volume and it works. This means that the tweeters are ok and something else is wrong. I took off the back plate to have a look at the crossover and wiring. I am not a crossover expert, but I couldn't see anything obviously damaged. Does anyone have any ideas what could be wrong?
