  1. Can you share any details of your project? i would be interested, but I have just been put on job keeper.
  2. I typically get better sound quality using uPNP, currently trialling DSD Upsampling via USB. Dacs/streamers are: RME ADI2 Fs (Use for dac conversion, spdif from pioneer N-70A, and USB from pc) Pioneer N-70A (use as a upnp source to RME via spdif)
  3. Thanks I went with a Canare rg6 style flexible cable with Canare rca crimps. Cheaper.... and hopefully just as good. from Ordiocables https://www.ordiocables.com.au/ Ben was great to deal with. Ben has some Belden 1694a coming in soon too. i have since moved to using Upnp and USB from Audirvana/Tidal, running DSD upsanpling.
  4. Nice, I didn't realise RME changed the DAC chip, I thought it was just a remote change. That was quietly done. Apparently the update provides 3db additional headroom for users operating the DAC as a preamp (I.e. at 0db) and 10db lower distortion (for what was an incredibly low distortion DAC). I have the original ADI2 FS, its a brilliant device. GLWS.
  5. https://darko.audio/2020/07/5-more-thoughts-on-the-cambridge-audio-cxn-v2/ No difference apparently via coax. I suspect it comes down to how well your DAC rejects jitter.
  6. Awesome, I sound like a fan boy... lol. With all the COVID and anti China stuff going on, I'm trying to keep my dollars local. If you need custom Ben can help. I couldn't find 1694a on the website, but he said no issue. He even provides custom text on shrink labelling if you need. Anyway. Enjoy.
  7. I thought the name was cool too. I would rather my dollars stay in OZ, than go to offshore ebay sellers, or Bluejeans etc. Lifetime warranty is good too. I will provide some more feedback when I get the cables.
  8. On a quest to find a local supplier of Belden and Canare spdif/analog cables, I came across this website. https://www.ordiocables.com.au/ Ben has been terrific to deal with. I will be ordering a custom Belden 1694a, and Canare version both with Canare RCAP RCA (75ohm RCA crimps) connectors. Prices are extremely reasonable, and Ben was a real pleasure to deal with. I just wanted to highlight this Australian provider, for anyone else looking for quality pro quality cabling for their home or workplace.
  9. Further information: Pickup preferred. Free to inspect. I had these for a garage music project that never eventuated. The speakers are unused, and have only been connected once for testing. One of the speakers has a small crack in the face of the plastic basket. This was incurred during a home move. I have taken a photo of the front and rear at the crack. It appears the crack has not gone through the basket. The grills are in as new condition, and come with original bags, and removable (if you prefer) rear white foam backing. Speaker grills and basket flange could be painted to suit any ceiling colour, or finish. EAW CIS 400 CEILING MONITOR SPEAKERS: https://www.eaw.com/products/cis400/ RRP $400inc gst each Actually a very nice sounding ceiling speaker. Discrete dome tweeter, with 6.5inch poly cone mid/bass driver. The CIS400 is a complete two-way bass-reflex flush-mount loudspeaker assembly designed for fixed installations into typical ceiling plenum spaces. Employing a unique HF waveguide design based on the Mackie HR824 studio monitors, the CIS400 delivers superior dispersion and pattern control over conventional coaxial designs. The waveguide integrates the HF driver with a 6.5″ LF driver optimized for smooth frequency response and seamless transition through the crossover point. The result is extraordinary acoustic performance not generally associated with a commercial ceiling speaker in this price range. The CIS400 is supplied fully assembled, complete with a sealed zinc-coated steel backcan and cam-style installation clamps. The metal enclosure includes a recessed Euroblock input connector with detachable mating plug, concealed behind a hinged metal cover plate. A welded tab is provided for seismic restraint. Two steel T-Bar support channels are provided to facilitate installation to a standard tile ceiling. Also supplied is a steel split C-ring, which serves to disperse the clamping pressure of the mounting cams.

DPA-22 digital power amplifiers are energy-saving devices, only using power when they are amplifying and are compactly designed at half the size of the MPA-20. The DPA-22 also comes with multiple inputs, RS232 control and the option of IR or contact closure remote. Key features of DPA-22 digital power amplifiers: Class D digital platform 2 x 20 watts (RMS) per channel @ 4 Ohms output 1 x 40 watts (RMS) @ 8 Ohms (Bridged output) 2 x Line Level inputs (1 x RCA and 1 x 3.5mm) 1 x Mic level input (with mix function) RS232 control IR and contact closure remote options Output switchable stereo/ mono/ bridged Line level output Separate power supply (included) Amplifier comes in original box, with manual.

  10. The cable would still oxidise in the connector, you just don’t see it. Unless you are tinning/soldering ends. If I had to choose a preferred connector it would be speakon.
