    Re: Ethernet switch box

    I actually have a degree in Psychology, which is really weird for a computer programmer data guy :).... I really thought that Freud was a lunatic though :).

    Re: Multiple DACs in One DAP

    I don't really think it is a matter of being right or wrong, more so to give a different flavor that you may prefer with different types of music. I like that it is using both manufactures current...

    Re: Multiple DACs in One DAP

    It does on PCM files. On DSD (up to DSD256) and MQA (yes it also has MQA with either DAC) it does not. It's functions are very similar to my other A&K so not too hard getting used to it. So far...

    Multiple DACs in One DAP

    I just received my new Astell & Kern yesterday. Very interesting piece. I don't know if it is true or not but they claim this is the first piece ever to have two completely different brands of DAC...
  10. Re: Could you survive with streaming music only?

    These charts do tell a story for sure, but it does bring many questions up, such as which services, which digital format. I would believe that the charts would look considerably different if...

    Re: Handmade Passive Preamplifier

    Also, we are talking about the accepted terms in the audio world. A preamplifier controls volume output to an amplifier and selects inputs from music sources. A passive preamplifier does not add...

    Re: Hattor Pre-amp Inbound

    Thanks Jack. It definitely has some breakin in to go, but so far very impressive. A bigger difference than I was expecting and it should get even better. Arek sent the tube stage in a flight case...

    Re: Hattor Pre-amp Inbound

    The new tube active stage arrived! It can be used either pure passive or tube active. The tube stage adds +9 dB gain but more importantly it adds some nice tube sweetness! More air, more open with...

    Re: Handmade Passive Preamplifier

    Again, I agree. It looks like a nice unit but it certainly is not a passive pre-amp.

    "successfully amplifying and tuning sound quality", and "with 1X, 3X, 5X and 10X gain options", I also have...

    Re: Handmade Passive Preamplifier

    I of course understand what a passive pre-amp is, I currently use one and have had others. However, when you state that it adds gain, guess what, it is no longer a passive pre-amp. Any kind of gain...
  16. Re: Could you survive with streaming music only?

    I do not disagree, however the point I was making is that many/most people who's main source of music is streaming do not purchase music, from the artist or otherwise. Therefore streaming as an...
  17. Re: Could you survive with streaming music only?

    In fact I actually do purchase music again for stuff I really like. I actually purchase both digital and vinyl versions of new music many times. If I can purchase straight from the artist that is...

    Definitely prefer reading a book over reading on a computer. I even print out the research stuff I come with at work since I do not like reading on the screen. Hard cover books all the way for

    Re: Handmade Passive Preamplifier

    So in essence it is simply a volume control. That is cool. Gives you what you need.

    I have four sources hooked to my Hattor. Three use XLR and one RCA. Two of these I use on a daily basis so...
  23. Re: News: Millions Of MQA Tracks Coming To TIDAL Masters From Warner Music

    Those of us who do not stream have little interest in MQA. For local storage size is not an issue and the sound quality benefits of higher resolution and DSD are certainly worth it. And yes,...
