    Dear a.wayne, I’m sorry, but I do have a question: What’s beta droop?

    I really hope this is not a spelling issue again, because that would be really embarrassing. If it is, I’m so sorry.

    Re: Audionet Humboldt integrated

    I was just starting to like your soft side ..!

    Access Denied

    A Bit windy , short internet lay lay grammar uncorrected version , its when the output stage is under sized for the task so you lose gain drive and output current as load impedance lowers , this is obvious on this amp hence the massive drop off in power below 8 ohms.



    Regards

    PS the link is good ...!

    Dear a.wayne, too many errors for me to comment on. I’m terribly sorry.

    You may want to consider a tutor.

    Pity it wasn’t more pithy.
    Now:
    Back to audio
    Does the Humboldt suffer from beta droop?

  6. #106

    Audionet Humboldt integrated

    That guy is harmless, that’s why I didn’t bother to comment. But basically, the insinuations are complete bollocks.

    Back to the facts:
    - 400.000 microfarad capacitance
    - double mono layout with a total of 1900 VA transformers
    - damping factor of 1.800 at 10 kHz and 10.000 at 100 Hz

    That’s more power on tap than most hi-end separates.

    Re: Audionet Humboldt integrated

    Ignorantly proud now are we , the biggest difference in audio today vs 4 decades ago , Is how much it has moved from being a fun hobby, to full on cult ...!

    The Specs from Audionet clearly implies its an 8 ohm only amp as it heavily current limit into 4ohm and below , of course this is only a problem if your loudspeakers represents a lower Zmin than 8 ohms which most do . Mostly this implies you choose your speakers carefully has nothing to do about who is liking the sound , its technicality vs preference ..


    Halcro is another which comes to mind , excellent build but really an 8 ohm load amplifier for best sonics ..

    Carry on ...

    Dear a.wayne, have you ever come across the term ultra-high frequency amplifier?

    With more careful study of the specs you posted, you might have noticed that the frequency response of 0-700 000 Hz is quite unusual.

    Getting the concept might in turn allow development of a basic understanding of a design not focusing on class A and doubling the power from 8 to 4 to 2 ohms impedance, as the benefits those are achieved through other means. Also, have a look at the damping factor again, and you might understand the foolishness of your statements.

    Re: Audionet Humboldt integrated

    yes! i wonder if there will be a scientist stereo amp in the future.

    btw miika, how is the impression with the humboldt now after a few weeks. did you notice further benefits from break in?
    if i remember right you do have a kharma speaker coming in. any new from that side? i hope they are going to match well.

    I noticed an improvement in the soundstage after a couple of months, with the amp kind of opening up.

    Regarding the speakers, that will take some time due to custom color.

    How about yourself, have you replaced the Tune Tots?

    no, you cant replace tunetots. best speaker in the world as for desktop application.
    mine are setup to perfection by the millimeter over many monthes and will only be replaced when a new version will come out in 2 or 3 years.
    the synergy with the humboldt is amazing.

    well yes, it will be interesting how well they pair.
    i had the humboldt with the sabrinaX and power wasnt enough for high volume.
    just as it was described in the review, double bass will fail and things fall apart.
    however, this happen with most amps and usually much earlier at lower volume.
    when things match each other, humboldt has a worldclass bass. an extraordinary good bass.
    the other things he described (enhanced texture, fullsounding), nope, thats a question of cabling and tweaking. at this level you take your time if you want it to your liking

    Re: Audionet Humboldt integrated

    Yes if speaker load (Zmin ) stays above 8 ohm i can believe it will be good , reminds me alot of Halcro , given a bad rap because most tried to drive large lowZ speakers with them , at 8 ohm it was a world class Amp ...!

    I’m currently running the Humboldt with Sabrina X’s I have on loan, and can’t really relate to your comment. I’ve tried the Humboldt on probably 50% power at the max to test the volume, but that was too loud for listening.

    I would guess you probably have a source volume control somewhere in the system you’re not aware of (PC, DAC etc.) which is limiting the output volume.

    hey, everybody loved the humboldt / sabrinaX pairing. it was playing beautiful. nothing to complain.
    it has power to pop the drivers, no doubt.

    sabrinaX with heisenberg will play completely unstressed even at very high volume in a very big room.

    The Sabrina X’s go well with the Humboldt, nice pairing. I was surprised how good the tweeters are.

    Would love to hear your Heisenbergs at some point. Maybe a road trip to Switzerland?

    Which speakers are you using with the Heisenbergs?

    lol, no, not a second so far.
    cd is pain in the ass and has no picture vs youtube. sad old world.
    internet: live events, netflix, tv....

    all you got to do is networking. then you get all the above in cd quality and beyond.
    marketprice does reflect this. when i wanted to sell the collection i ask a guy who owns a shop and he told me i can bring him them thousends of discs but he will give me NOTHING for them.

    Re: Audionet Humboldt integrated

    Thats the usual talk to acquire free CD’s or LP’s ..

    CD’s regularly sell for 3-25 bucks all day everyday , for those willing to deal with them. there’s no CD quality from streaming or server IMO, well thats been my experience from multiple compares ,in many settings. Music originally done on CD format will sound best with CDP’s , streaming is best for highdef recordings originally done for streaming /downloads , its the same of analog LP those recordings sound best on a TT..

    Re: Audionet Humboldt integrated

    you are right, thouse damn cd s sounded great and i am lying a little bit to myself.
    on the side the differences are no more a dealbreaker and you will find lovers in each camp.

    from another view, all this doesnt matter no more for me as my application is internet and i try to get it as good as possible. at the moment quboz sounds better than youtube but i think i get it very close as it is the very same thing.

    btw the shop i was asking is selling NEW cd for 3-5 dollars. mine were 10 to 40 years old, bad condition, no casing.
