The Elephant in the room

Recommended Posts

How much all this equates to a noticeable audible difference in a domestic setting is probably the thing to determine.

The gain will most likely not be worth the trouble as there will be compromises all through most systems anyway, but that’s just my opinion.

 

i went through a very small period of trying to get the perfect sound but I came to my senses and just decided which compromises I could live with and which I couldn’t, each to their own in that regard, there’s no right or wrong.

That surprises me as in almost all AVRs and pre-pros are processed single ended, when a balanced signal is converted to single ended, SNR will decrease by 3dB.

Read that again and to be explicit was talking from switching from unbalanced feeding an unbalanced power amp to balanced feeding a balanced . Hence getting the db advantage of common mode noise rejection[ many noisy things like a/c and fridge compressors can have an effect on unbalanced] ;)

Exactly ; putting it all together about the 758v3 for example [as that is the obvious choice here] ; 1st people on av forum complained about excessive hiss on their ceiling speakers running atmos then suddenly NAD releases a new module and people are told it doesn't matter which module you have ?

I’ve always found African elephants treat the room better for sound than Indian elephants. Contentious I know but YMMV

They only work in large rooms, not something for your typical living room
