  1. Yep, @vong is ready to represent Australia now.
  2. Looks like that only applies to the 15" models (S1512 and V1512). The other models have the IPAL in the model (S1812 vs. S18 IPAL; V3612 vs. V36 IPAL).
  3. Oh, we're up to S1512, V1512, and V1812 now. Not sure what the difference is between the ones ending in 12 and 10 (which was what I saw a year ago).
  4. V1510 and S1510 have been out for a while now, but those are really good prices! Thanks.
  5. Ah, didn't know it was also supported on mid-range AVRs. I agree though, would be nice to have support for both the pro calibration kit and the app. I'm not even sure why Audyssey decided to phase out the pro calibration kit when competitors like Anthem's ARC and Dirac still allows advanced calibration via a mic and PC software.
  6. I think it's created to replace the older Audyssey pro calibration kit and assumes you have prior knowledge... Also, pro calibration support was only available in the top end devices, with the MultiEQ App now, it brings support for calibration to lower end models as well.
  7. FWIW, the "after" graph isn't accurate. It's Audyssey's guess as there are no measurements taken post-correction.
  8. Try this for reviews: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dmholdings.AudysseyMultEq&showAllReviews=true
  9. Better engineering lets you 'cheat physics', look at the evolution of computers, smart phones, etc. We get it, you've shown your dislike of ASR and Topping. Maybe you could provide facts and back up your claims of 'budget requirements'? Maybe provide a list of the DACs you favour and compare to (this DAC does this better than the D90 because... etc.)? Disclaimer, I don't currently own any Topping products nor do I intend on purchasing a D90 but I applaud them pouring resources into R&D and engineering, being one of the first to release products using the latest tech.
  10. Oh also, switch to a business grade Internet connection and with a reputable ISP that won't route your traffic all over the country before making it's way out via International transit links (in order to reduce cost).
  11. Want as little delay as possible? - move to a place that has NBN FTTP rather than ADSL or FTTN/VDSL. That's ~30ms down to ~2ms. - find a switch that does cut-through forwarding (vs. the usual store-and-forward which buffers). Likely you want a device that does both switching and L3 routing so your NBN connection plugs/terminates directly into it. - set up QoS / DSCP / TOS to prioritise packets to and from your streamer. - if your streamer is a PC, find a NIC from the Mellanox ConnectX adapter family. Let's you tune IRQ Affinity and pin to specific CPU cores. - if your streamer is a PC, also tune the TCP stack for low latency.
  12. The Vega comes up quite often, so good one to match your Taurus, if you're OCD: Also add the Matrix Audio X-SABRE Pro to your list.
  13. Even then, nothing a little EQ won't/can't fix. Or one of these passive inline filters: https://diyaudioheaven.wordpress.com/headphones/passive-filters/ The thing comes with both a 2.5mm balanced MMCX cable and 3.5mm SE to add to your MMCX cable collection.
