    Re: What’s the big deal with class ‘D’ anyhow ?

    Yea, reducing it in HQPlayer is the same as lowering it in Roon .... but I am thinking that with a resistor ladder volume in the DAC this would probably make the most sense... I have the Rothwell in SE, might have to grab some in XLR.... good thing to have around anyway...

    Well there are balanced inline attentuators, but I don't know there quality . I actually use them for my subs to overcome the usual boost deployed in the 40 - 50 Hz level.

    The Rothwell's are very good, but they are out of the UK, so not quite as easy to get... last time I bought some straight from them.... Might have to do the same thing...

    I own and have used both the SE and Balanced versions of the Rothwell's with multiple amp preamp combos and have never noticed any sound degradation. There is another option, Harrison Labs, but they are SE only.

    Randy, are you using XLR's or SE? If XLR's try switching to SE as you will loose about 6db. It may help a little. I can tell the difference in my system.

    I do prefer XLR, and I recently got some fairly decent XLR cables... so I prefer sticking with XLR. But a good thought for sure.

    Randy

    Understand that you prefer the XLR cables but I would try it with the SE cables as an experiment to see if it works then you will know for sure whether or not the Rothwell's will solve the problem without doing it on the software end. I have only gone to all XLR cables recently as that is how the DSD and the BHK gear is set up to operate to full potential.
