    Mike replied to a thread Esoteric XD Series in Esoteric†
    This will sound like a PC answer, but truly in between. If pressed, I would say closer to the K1X. In years past, the K-03 versions were quite close to the K-01 versions. With XD, thatís not the case. K-01XD is really a nice step up. HOWEVER,...

    Yes, it is absolutely essential to disconnect the Ethernet cable between the X1 and the switch if you are going to use a fiber connection between X1 and the switch. Otherwise, forming a network loop will bring down your whole network.

    Yup, two different approaches for recording. A820 is the real deal for recording which tape machines were designed for back then. Today, the focus is more playback for most. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro

    If youíre into audio by the pound, yes that would matter. The weight of the A820 comes from itís stand, sheer size and other structures internally as you have mentioned. The A810 was designed purposely as a portable unit, so areas for size and...

    Mike, youíre off. The 810 and 820 have the exact same playback mechanism. Itís all in the recording side the differences. And for playback only, the 1500 Technics is excellent, especially rebuilt by J Corder. From Ki Choi: ďboth share all...

    George, the hiss of tape is there with digital (from tapes) as well, but excessive hiss on R2R playback can come from many sources: bad caps, caps going bad, dirty tape heads, bad tape heads, etc. With a copy of the master tape, you are closer...

    The A820 Vs A810 is almost identical, the only difference being in the recording side. If itís playback only, itís identical. Most 810ís can be had for $10-15k fully refurbished, wired with external outputs, flux heads, etc. I own two. There...

    Yes, single mode TL-SM311LS will work with your single mode fiber. In your previous post you said multi-mode module (that would imply TL-SM311LM) - that won't work with your single mode fiber.
