  1. Re: Hans Ole Vitus to step down as CEO of Vitus

    It takes much more than technical ability to run a successful business. Sounds as if the founder decided to let others run the company while he dedicates himself to technical and R&D duties. I get...

    Re: Onkyo Files for Bankruptcy

    From the linked article that Mike posted:
    "The company’s failure has been blamed on its inability to adapt to the fast-changing audio market which is increasingly software-based and revolves around...

    Re: Streaming guidance needed

    A few folks have mentioned devices that come with a ripper. However, if you own a computer, you can save yourself thousands of dollars (and do a better job in the process) by ripping your own CD....

    Re: Active Speakers - will this time be different?

    Here is an example of full-blown expectation bias. :rolleyes: Not surprising since it comes from a subjective reviewer who really drank the kool aid.

    Re: Roon and HQ Player

    Both Roon and HQP can do upsampling. However, HQP has literally dozens of filters that you can chose from to listen to your music. Roon only has 3 or 4 filters from what I remember. Some filters work...

    Re: Daughter board for a CAV-180

    Sounds great!
    You can try connecting a "Y" RCA splitter cable (1 male to 2 female) to the SSP to split the output signal of the main speakers. But don't forget to send full signals to the main...

    Re: Active Speakers - will this time be different?

    FWIW, B&O offers four audio systems for Audi: Their cheaper option is the Bang & Olufsen Sound System (my old A7 had this one; it was just ok), next comes the Bang & Olufsen 3D Sound System, then the...

    Re: Active Speakers - will this time be different?

    You being a subjective audio reviewer, I am sure that you only trust your own ears. So here is some homework for you: Go to your nearest Audi dealer and tell them that you want to test drive an Audi...

    Re: Active Speakers - will this time be different?

    Active speakers are being used in automobile sound systems with amazing results. For example, B&O has developed a system (with 23 active-speaker and over 1,000 watts) for certain Audi models that...

    Re: Active Speakers - will this time be different?

    Well, that was 25 years ago. Today, an audiophile power cable can set you back thousands not to mention interconnects, speaker cables, etc. You can look at it as if you were ahead of your time.

    The lady distributor from Canada (sitting on the right side of the panel table) is brave. Here she is telling Framer (and everybody) that young folks just want to stream their music despite all the...

    Re: A Tale of Two Live Concerts

    That is yet another example of where live music and recorded music differ. In just about any symphonic work where there is piano (e.g., a piano concerto), the composer gives the pianist plenty of...

    I totally understand you!

    It is hard to pick just one when it comes to Mahler!

    But… you did not mention Das Lied von der Erde. The last movement, "Der Abschied", might just be the supreme...

    A Tale of Two Live Concerts

    In the past two weeks I attended a couple of live concerts. One was a pop music concert; the other a performance of Mahler's Resurrection Symphony.

    The sound of the Pop concert was not good at...

  23. Re: Least expensive and best way to stream music to a DAC???

    Exactly. And that includes an inexpensive Raspberry Pi computer.
  24. Re: Least expensive and best way to stream music to a DAC???

    A $24,000 streamer? Wow!
    The law of diminishing returns certainly applies here. Otherwise, the $24k streamer would have to be 9,500% better than the $250 one!
  25. Re: Least expensive and best way to stream music to a DAC???

    That paper is from 1998. And 24 years later the term "jitter" is still being thrown around in audiophile circles as if it were a big deal. Yet another example of the boogeymen that still live in the...
