    Re: Speakers for small room

    Thanks for both suggestions. I have indeed researched the Janzsen speakers. Although they are direct sell, he will "rent" you a pair for trial at your home. Something I may do. I do have some...

    Re: Zu Audio speakers?

    I got the Zu Essence many years ago, and upgraded to the Druids a few years ago.

    When I started, I chose them based on the “made in America” tag, and high sensitivity. At that point in time I was...

    Re: Speakers for small room

    I have a prejudice for floor standers, but trying to be open minded.

    There is room for the front of the speakers to be 2 feet out.

    i have been looking at sealed, front ported, or bottom ported...

    Speakers for small room

    Enjoying my current set up, but of course, always thinking of upgrades.

    I turn 61 next year, and am starting to think of the “final system”, as major upgrades won’t happen after retirement.

    We...

    Re: Bricasti M3 Stereo D/A Converter

    I use a Bricasti M12 as the heart of my system. I usually stream via a Roon server on a NAS. I have the NAS re-sample everything to DSD128, both to avoid the resolution change clicking, and because I...

    Re: Best headphones/amps? Recommendations?

    I value speed and transparency for my headphone listening, and detest a lot of the "extra bass" headphones that seem to be popular now. I love IEMs, although the customs don't fit as well after a few...

    Re: ZU

    I did get a matching Undertone this spring. I will agree that the "presense" factor went way up with adding the sub. I am still fiddling with both increasing and decreasing the sub volume. Some music...

    Re: Roon vs JRiver

    I could not tell the difference between JRiver and Roon in my system, so I went with better interface/experience and got a lifetime Roon experience. I currently use an Aries for streaming, but will...

    Re: Wyred4Sound STP Issue?

    I rarely get above 12 on my pre-amp, so I don't contend with that often, but yes, its just the way the pre-amp works AFAIK.

    Re: Wyred4Sound STP Issue?

    My upgraded STP-SE was returned fully functional. Apparently issues with the power supply, which required some part replacements. All good now.

    Send them a note.

    I have a similar issue left side popping, and no sound, after upgrading my STP-SE, confirmed with my headphone amp. The missing channel was not as absolute with the speakers. Its currently on the way...

    I currently use an Aleph J clone, and have plans for a V-Fet amp or 2 coming up, all in the Nelson Pass line. I will consider building a 2A3 and or 300b amp at some point.

    As to the sub, my room...

    Re: ZU

    Nope, but my new Druid Vs finally showed up. I ordered the gloss black, and that took awhile. Compared to my previous Zu Essence speakers, these have a bigger sound stage, and are much more refined,...
  17. Re: Just now purchased the ClearAudio Double Matrix Sonic

    Good luck on your testing, which seems rather complete, and real world, I have seen many of those substances on used records.

    I currently use a 16.5, and it works well. Noisy, time consuming, but...

    I heard the Carmel 2s at Axpona. One of the rooms I really liked. These speakers sounded really good, even in show type, hotel room, setup. I was impressed.

    Re: My New Lumin

    As a DIY hobbiest working on my second DIY DAC, and a third in the wings, I would find the Lumin restrictive to my hobby. I have a turntable in my system, so a preamp is needed. I don't care to have...
  24. Re: Passive vs. Powered Pre Amp — Skip the Power?

    I've had the STP-SE almost since it came out. One of the reasons I like it is that I DIY amps, and this pre will hang well with both low and high gain amps. It easily starts passive, and if needed,...
