  1. That depends a bit. I took the following prices from Wagner as an example (might be cheaper if you shop around a bit): For the ring radiator tweeter version: Pair of assembled and prewired crossovers - $359 (can be cheaper when sourcing parts and assembling yourself) TW29R tweeter - $199 each MW16P-4 woofer - $229 each For the beryllium tweeter version: Pair of assembled and prewired crossovers - $319 (can be cheaper when sourcing parts and assembling yourself) TW29BN tweeter - $499 each MW16P-4 woofer - $229 each
  2. Further information: Bought these from Wagner for $699, current price at Wagner is $799. The cabinets come with the bass reflex port and insert nuts for drivers installed. The following parts are also included: Hex socket screws 4x20mm (for drivers) Countersunk screws 4x20mm (for terminal plate) Wood screws 4x16mm (for crossover) Stainless steel terminal plate Binding posts (black and red) Seal gasket for terminal plate Name plate Grills for tweeters and woofers Damping material Not included are the drivers (MW16P-4 and TW29R or TW29BN) and crossovers. If needed I could assist with installing those. For more information about the Ara and Ara Be speakers please see the links to the SB Acoustics website: http://sbacoustics.com/product/ara/ http://sbacoustics.com/product/ara-be/ I have the original box with foam for shipping. Shipping costs are not included in the price. Photos:

  5. Troels is selling the one he made. Shipping will be expensive though... http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/sale.htm
  6. Then I would personally go for config 2 and deal with the cable switching.
  7. Did Gieseler confirm it's not recommended to have both the XLRs and RCAs connected? I'm not sure if it's actually a problem. From what I can tell you actually have to switch between XLR and RCA output with the switch on the back.
  8. For config 1 you could just leave the DAC's volume control at 100% all the time, that way you would basically treat it as a DAC without volume control. Then you can use the headphone/pre-amp as volume control. Since it is an integrated amp I think I would prefer config 2. However, I can't judge how much influence having both the RCAs and XLRs connected at the same time will have on the sound quality. What model is your DAC? Of course disconnecting one of the outputs is always possible, but a bit inconvenient.
  9. Yes, the midwoofer driver holes are chamfered at the back except for the places behind the insert nuts (to provide enough depth for the driver screws).
  10. Yes, I do have the box and foam for shipping.
  11. This was really interesting, thanks for sharing! Sounds hopeful for the future.

  13. Did you try contacting Jaben? According to the QDC website they should have it, although I couldn't find any on the Jaben website. Might be worth a shot.
  14. Both options 2 and 3 sound good to me. I would try to steer clear of using a USB DAC directly with the pi, however the USB on the pi4 has apparently improved over the pi3. As for DAC HATs I would definitely take a look at the Khadas Tone Board too. They did a review and took measurements over at audiosciencereview and it performed really well. For most DAC HATs I've seen the power is shared with the pi through the GPIO pins, so then you could just power one of them (if the power supply can provide enough current). For the Audiophonics DAC I-Sabre ES9038Q2M you mentoined it says the following: "In addition, as for its predecessor, the Raspberry Pi is powered directly via the GPIO port, avoiding multiple connections.". For the Khadas Tone Board I have attached the connection diagram. Hope this helps.
  15. So true. I have some still in storage back there, so I might ship it over at a later stage. But building something new is always good.
