  1. Right click "paste as plain text" should work (CTRL SHIFT V is the windows shortcut)
  2. Further information: The illustrious SOTM200. A bespoke mini computer that does one thing and one thing really well - stream hi-res audio via ethernet and output in via USB. Roon compliant (I had to update the firmware recently as the new Roon 1.8 update seemed to make Roon think that the SOTM200 wasn't compatible any more ). Also has it's own bespoke operating system - connect it to your network and the device appears in your web browser so you can access the settings. Its deceptively simple. A massive step up from a Laptop or PC based music output. The SOTM200 has a
  3. Further information: This is a great little unit that I bought after reading some measurements on. It has 2 functions, one to act as a buffer that uses Jfets to provide a high input impedance and low output impedance and to provide a very accurate attenuation of source. The other function is where you switch off the Jfet section and use the relay volume pot to provide attenuation. In that function it is as benign a passive buffer / attenuator as you could hope to get. And it has remote control, multiple inputs and dual outputs so it's covered in terms of convenience. I r
  4. It's vaguely Yaris shaped but that's where the similarities end
  5. Ze blurb " Acoustid to listen to your songs and find matches even when they have no information at all, but also takes advantage of existing file information to ensure you get the best album match. SongKong uses our own dedicated JThink Music Server regularly updated from the MusicBrainz and Discogs databases giving you more accurate matches, faster." It took me SOngkong 12hours to go through my entire collection (lots of tracks) but it certainly improved my experience.
  6. Songkong by Jthink is good - I own it: http://www.jthink.net/songkong/ Also this might be worth trying - https://www.blisshq.com/organise-music-files.html ??
  7. For mid-bass (not deep bass) and for testing if a system has good accuracy in that region (not just loud mid-bass!), Dire Straits Ride Across the River.
  8. Further information: Up for grabs X4 1.2m Ethernet cables. These are used to run connections between patch panels in Datacentres. Theses U/UTP cables have 10GX certification which ensures a very high resistance to EMI/ RFI and Alien Crosstalk. A good short length for small spaces too. https://catalog.belden.com/index.cfm?event=pd&p=PF_10GXFUTPCMRPATCHCORDS Photos:
  9. Further information: The USBridge Signature Player, a small form streamer with a very high quality USB output. Includes an SD Card with the latest version of DietPI with the Allo interface. Connect to an ethernet cable, start it up and then go to http://dietpi.local to start using it. if you are using Roon, simply select Roon in the list and then find the streamer in Roon - and away you go. https://darko.audio/2020/06/allos-usbridge-signature-review/ "Flexible, reasonably priced and sounds excellent. What’s not to like?..." * WIFI dongle is not includ
  10. Might want to check your pictures. They show a pair of Behringer A500's. Not Sampson amplifiers.
  11. Nothing new to learn in the world of acoustics then. Sorry for wasting everyone's time.
