    Months later i know, but i thought id let you know that all the distortion, harsh noise i was experiencing wasnt due to the AVM60 or my speakers /system. It was my room acoustics !! Reflection I invested in some bass traps and quality panels as well as other side DIY treatment solutions. and everything sounds great now ! Superb actually. live and learn i guess lol So sorry about all the whinging i did back then lol I had no idea room acoustics made such a difference.

    24 bit audio + Nvidia shield

    Interesting for sure. But not really clear as to wether its possible or not. Some comments said yes /maybe others said no Android software has limitations so kodi player etc end up downsampling the file..How are peeps testing this? How are they able to know what samplerate and bitdepth a flac file is playing at? I dont see anywhere where kodi player displays this info? Or vlc etc?
  7. Hi Im after some advice regarding high res digital audio and android media players available on shield. I have a collection of 24 bit audio. I recently migrated the collection to shield. I saw a graph that suggested vlc , kodi player and other Android media players only play 16bit audio Do you know of any m/players available on shield that do allow for 24bit audio tracks? Or do you know of any kodi addons that have 24bit audio streams? I have found some good addons but like usual they dont state if theyre lossless or mp3 or 24bit Same with most players. I find it frustrating that even vlc refuse to say if they do allow 24bit or not. Im not the first to ask i did google it. It seems like vlc and other like to keep this a secret for some reason?

    Van den hul wire soldered w/Deltron plugs?

    Thanks for the detailed replies. I really appreciate the input. Taking your suggestions into consideration, ill leave the nickel connectors on (amp end) . Until i feel theyre corroding . Then ill search out a better option. The chord connectors are only gold plated, not sure whats underneath. Theyre screw on not soldered. I do have one more question if thats ok. I also was given an audioquest Rocket 33 cable that i use for my centre channel. Its solid copper wire. on the amp end i used a screw on chord connector. and bare wire on the speaker end. There was a lot of wire exposed on the end of the cable so i wrapped it in electrical tape to seal it. It sounds fine , but as a novice , i cant help but feel theres a better way to deal with solid copper wire like this. What should i have done in this case? The wire is so hard to twist and bend. there must be a better way of dealing with the cable? My gear: PSB T3s , PSB C3, Richter wizards V series, Richter merlins V series, 2x Richter Thor subs. 7.2 audio, Anthem AVM-60 , W/ 2x Emotiva XPA5 Gen3 amps. regards isaac
  11. HI I just received 2x2m worth of van den hul 12 awg hybrid wire. I paid extra to have the solder plugs. I just noticed theyre Nickel Deltron plugs? For some reason i expected them to be gold plated to avoid corrosion I did try googling this , couldnt find any relevant info on the topic. Just lots of google ads an articles written in 2002 lol google sucks these days Anway, Im really trying to reduce interference and distortion in my system. Thats why i bought the cables, as part of trouble shooting steps. Am i back to square one with Nickel connectors? would i be better off cutting them out and just using my gold plated chord banana plugs? or is soldered Nickel plugs more beneficial ? Its Nickel connectors on the amp side only. Speakers ill use bare wire regards Isaac

    So i discovered youtube cannot play 24 bit audio . So it explains why its audio is so loud ie 90db ..when 24bit audio that i have stored on my laptop, at the same vol is only 75db. 24 bit audio because i want highest possible quality. Not just that but where i source my music from i have a choice of 24 bit or 10 bit.

    I just played a dozen tracks from various sources all 24bit. Only the youtube tracks seem to distort. I tried a few 24 bit audio channels on youtube. They all seem to do it to some extent. I can tell theyre not lossy quality , theyre decent audio . But i did notice at -20 on the dial the vol is around 75db to 80db . Thats with other media other than youtube With youtube @ -20 its around 85db to 90db !! so i turned youtube vol down and laptop vol down but kept the AVM at -20 / 75db . seems to be ok . Im not sure why the youtube vol makes such a difference . maybe youtube likes their content sounding loud lol
