  1. Hi Guys , I am using a vintage Rotel integrated amplifier to power by stereo speakers and noticed that one channel is 10db louder than the other. Is that because of the amplifier is old? Using the same speaker cables on left and right speakers. Connected via mobile using the RCA cable. Attached the measurements using the db meter. It's approximate only. Thanks
  2. Current Setup is an LG smart TV, HDMI out into my Yamaha AV receiver. I watch & listen to my content through the apple tv or chromecast, both of which are hooked into the receiver. If I want to access apps through the TV, so the native Netflix app on the TV for instance, I get no sound - what's the easiest solution? Should add, the toslink optical input is being used on the receiver from my Google Audio Chromecast.

  5. So recently I have been upgrading my hifi and Av set up, it's more centered around audio but I have just got a 4k tv and blueray player , which has the ability to play all audio formats including sacd and flac files, at a claimed 24bit 192kz . How much better is a dedicated cd player going to be? Is it really necessary

  9. Item: FS: Dan A Digital Solid Silver Reference Interconnect XLR cables 0.6Metre (66cm-end to end) Location:Western Sydney Price: $300 (rrp +$870-direct form Dan A digital) Item Condition: Mint. Boxed as pictured. Are at minimum break in stage, no longer required(under 10 hrs usage) Reason for selling: No longer required, using Integrated amp Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Postage Australia Wide-$20-Registered Post Extra Info:ship Australia Wide-$20-Registered Post ***Having used many brands of interconnects over the years, I find Dan A Digitals to be , whilst expensive, about as state of the art as you can get. **Currently Boeing does all the testing for the purity levels in the silver of these cables** Pictures:as attached OPENâ„¢ Interconnect Cables Analog signal cables suitable for reference stereo and multi-channel audio RCA and XLR Dana Electro Acoustics OPENâ„¢ interconnect cables are made form pure silver that is drawn to form AWG 24 wire and then insulated with Teflon . The insulated silver wires make up a cable where conductors are formed in [tri:form]â„¢ geometry and connected in balanced single ended configuration (for RCA terminations) or balanced configuration (for XLR /Cannon terminations). The pure silver is tested after forming into the wire for purity at an independant laboratory, and must be at least ten thousand times more pure than pure sterling silver to conform to OPENâ„¢ interconnect cablestandard. Each cable set has a certificate of silver purity, issued after the metallurgical tests for each batch, currently carried out at Boeing Aerospace laboratory. The importance of using pure silver is that silver is the best conductor at room temperatures, providing the least resistance to the signal transfer. The extraordinary purity of OPEN silver gives unrestrained and uniform propagation of electric field and to flow of electrons within the conductors. OPENâ„¢ - the closest conductor to no conductor at all. The insulator around the pure silver wire is genuine Teflon (trade mark of Du Pont). Use of genuine teflon material gives assurance of continuous high quality from batch to batch. All insulators inhibit fast change of voltage within conductors, and consequently affect the sound in audio cables.Teflon has one of the lowest influence on the sound (together with dry paper, dry cotton and polypropylene). OPENâ„¢ - the closest insulator to no insulator at all. [tri:form]â„¢ cable geometry provides very low interaction between conductors, giving the least influence to transfer of audio signal. This feature is measured as cable capacitance, and measures 30pF per meter of OPEN cable. We do not know of any other cable that has such low capacitance. OPENâ„¢ - the closest to having no capacitance at all. All OPENâ„¢ interconnect cables are shielded from interference that may be present in the surrounding space, in order to provide fine resolution and detail to even the quietest music passages. OPENâ„¢ - the closest to no background noise at all. Balanced single ended configuration means that both signal and signal return conductors are treated as signal wires (and not as signal and ground), and both are made from pure solid silver. Most other cables are of coaxial design, which is best suited for antenna cables. For audio, the best RCA design is OPENâ„¢ balanced single ended. OPEN â„¢- designed for audio. Balanced signal consists of two signal wires, and above listed [tri:form]â„¢ features are ideal for XLR / Cannon interconnect cables. All OPENâ„¢ interconnect cables are very flexable, despite being made from solid silver, thanks to [tri:form]â„¢ geometry.
  10. Item: White Devialet Phantom - 1200 Watts - 25KHz to 16Hz - 101dB + Official Cocoon Case Location: Perth, Western Australia (Cockburn, Kwinana, Rockingham area) Price: AUD$3050 for Phantom and Cocoon Case (Can Negotiate) Item Condition: Perfect condition with no dents, marks, or scratches whatsoever.

  15. Hey Folks, I have noticed some really poor audio quality coming from Netflix lately. Especially during Netflix Original shows. When a show or movie is playing in surround sound, I hear very obvious squelching when there is dialogue taking place. Anyone that is familiar with the old days of MP3 encoding etc, would probably have heard this kind of compression issue before. It sort of sounds like a high pitched underwater noise. Ive scoured the net trying to find a solution and the best Ive found is "turn off surround sound". Which is not a fix, but an avoid. Anyone experiencing similar issues on their setup? Im running a Xiaomi Mi Tv Android 6 Smart Player to a Denon 3312Ci and on to Kef T301 fronts and Kef T101 centre. Cheers in advance!
  16. Afternoon everyone. I have a moderate stereo setup at my house which I've been enjoying for a number of years, which I run off of a windows based HTPC, which is now getting quite old and I'm noticing some issues. Now since I work in IT, I have a lot of equipment laying around, including a Mac Mini that I haven't used for quite some time. Decided to play with it, so I threw Kodi on it, installed Audirvana and a bit of music. I have the Lenehan PDX as a DAC and had to install the HiFace driver, but it worked pretty seamlessly after installation. Fired up some music and was immediately... disappointed. The music sounded muddled, which is not characteristic of my system. I tried a few different programs, including J-River which is what I've used on my PC, and I will admit that the difference is still fairly noticeable. To be sure, I plugged it back into my old HTPC and as best as I can tell, it simply sounds much better. Now, I understand that what I'm familiar with might sound better to me, but in this case I'm being as objective as I possibly can be. Does anyone have any advice as to why the Mac Mini might be so sub-par? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.

  20. Hi there, We've used infocus projectors for many years and have just been upgraded to the 3118HD. We have noticed that when using HDMI as a source, the audio always 'fades in'. Usually this means missing the first 1-2 seconds of audio altogher. We use these for large scale presentations and a 1-2 second delayed start is not acceptable. Never had an issue with infocus before and can't get much help out of them now. Any ideas? We have tried a couple of different HDMI cables, but that doesn't seem to have made a difference.

  25. Hi All. Hope this is in the right area. I have a Denon AVR-X1300W AVR, I use this on my desktop as a Stereo Receiver. I also have a Creative Sound Blaster X7 DAC/AMP, I use this for Headphones and real small bookshelfs for night time listening. My PC's internal sound card is a Creative ZxR. 2 sets of speakers, one larger than the other, Larger set used with Subwoofer, smaller set on separate AMP for direct 2 channel listening with no Sub woofer. Set of KriX KDM-Mains on AVR with Sub and Krix Equinox on X7 in Direct Mode. Also have a set of Dali Zensor 1's down stairs. Now before I ask the questions, I am not double Amping or chaining DAC's, so don't think that please. My questions are as follows. What connections into the AVR will give best sound quality? ZxR to AVR through Optical? Analog? Or skip ZxR and use the X7 pre-outs (Direct Mode) into AVR? Can be Optical or Analog there too. Or even use the X7's DAC, go analog into AVR and turn Direct Mode on (With LFE+Main on as Sub won't work in direct if that ain't on) Is it ok to put smaller speakers on top of bigger speakers with vibration pads between, but only run one set at a time? The Ohm setting on the X1300, my speakers are 6 Ohms, but I read you leave the AVR at 8 Ohm anyway? Thank you for any help!! Will happily take any other suggestions as well.
