  1. 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
  2. ‘I’ve got to stop (typing) now, because I’ve got a lump in my throat’
  3. Let's settle down guys. Monitor Audio state 86db 1w/1m. Soundstage Network quotes 2.83V/1m. That gives different results especially in lower impedance speakers. It's not false advertising. Can't resist any opportunity to have a dig about cables. Obviously.
  4. https://www.soundstagenetwork.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2204:nrc-measurements-monitor-audio-gold-100-loudspeakers&catid=77&Itemid=153 Looks to be about 3ohms in the 4khz region. There is a bit of Electrical phase shift above that. A low impedance at very low and /or high frequencies might give an amp' bigger issues but a decent amp' should be able to handle this load. Beat me by 10 seconds...
  5. Yeah, like I said, if you want fun and the positive qualities of the CRV you need to spend a lot more.
  6. Which model are you referring to? Low end torque has been improved., especially in the latest turbo model.
  7. And now I see again, why I don't venture outside of the classifieds......
  8. Further information: Just to explain what this is. PS Audio had their LAN Rover USB "extender" which essentially packetised the USB input and sent it via ethernet to an output at the other end. The benefit (apart from being able to send USB over really distances) what there there was galvanic isolation between the source and your DAC. It was widely known at the time that the LAN Rover was out that PS Audio in fact used rebranded version of the Icron USB / Ethernet extender. This unit has some improvements over the LAN Rover and the older Icron unit because it uses Fibr
  9. And the pricing has become very competative since they shifted to SIngapore assembly. But I'm not pretending that it is perfect or a super fun car to drive, though my Wife has loved both of the ones we owned. If you want rock solid build AND fun then you start looking at much bigger $$ than the CRV...
  10. Honda CRV? I've got the previous model, tonnes of room for 5 peeps and heap of luggage. It is categorized as a compact SUV btw.
  11. So without having to start a new thread but not wanting to send this one off topic. I bought a 75ohm BNC to BNC cable last week and fitted it between my SU6 and my Etheregen. Turned off the Etheregen and then switched it to external clock" then restarted it. Nuffin. No data activity. I tried a second cable, just in case but still no activity. I power cycled and went back to the internal clock Spec's for the 2 devices are: SU6 - WCLK output uses BNC interface, the level is TTL (no load), the output impedance is 75 ohms; Input on EtherREGEN = requires 10MHz clock. The BNC jack
  12. Yes it is. Prompt postage and reasonable pricing from my experience.
  13. Item: Hifi Tuning Fuse Silverstar 4A slow blow 5X20mm Price Range: talk to me! Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I'm specifically after this fuse in 4A. Possibly look at 3.15A or 5A if someone has one. I'm using a Silverstar in my DAC at the moment but it's a lot smaller than the required 4A so I want to get one that is the specified value.

  15. Found the answer I think: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/61753-singxer-sda-6/page/2/
  16. I have bought a few things from Afterdark. I would recommend them.
  17. Here's a potentially dumb question and I don't want to derail the discussion, but... Would and of you know in I can get my Singxer SU6 to send a masterclock signal to my SU6? Out on SU6 = (WCLK) output uses BNC interface, the level is TTL (no load), the output impedance is 75 ohms; Input on Etherregen = requires 10MHz clock. The BNC jack and termination resistor of the EtherREGEN are for a 75ohm clock line. I can't find any data on the clock speed that the SU6 outputs. To test this, is there a cheap cable that anyone can recommend that I can rig up betwe
  18. I've been making up some ethernet cables with the shielding attached at one end and not the other. I assume this is a similar principle? Also, does the PULSHUT shielding act in a similar way to the semi-conductive nylon screen on the Supra Lorad cables?
  19. Further information: This is newest model of the Lehmann Linear headphone amp / preamp. It is a very expensive little unit (RRP is about $1400). They use very high quality parts and are bulletproof. In stock form they are really great amps. Most reviews centre on their use as a headphone amp' in which case they are very competitive with units in their price range. I've used this for about 10 hours in total, and that was as a preamp / buffer. I'm not going to use it my setup now. I managed to convince Nigel (older members will remember him as Greenwagon) to
  20. Yes, very botchy. Harkening back to another thread, they should rename themselves Van Der Whyte technologies.
  21. I got another update, hot on the heels of one the other day. So that's the 3rd update in about a week if my memory serves me right. I guess there was quite a bit of "feedback" from users on the 1.8 update. https://community.roonlabs.com/t/roon-1-8-build-764-is-live/147048
  22. Maybe I'm a Dope but I really don't feel like having Crack at a Cocaine joke, especially not about speakers from that joint.
