    Re: Cord Cutting Options

    Also, Apple TV is more of a curated experience, while Roku is more of an open marketplace. There are lots of random niche Roku channels both free and paid, while Apple TV tends to stick with...

    Re: Sound volume level

    Apple Sound Check is the only one I know of that analyzes your entire library and then changes the output level of all songs in an attempt to do what you're asking.

    Re: Lumin D2+DAC or T2

    My personal opinion is that the T2's analog output sounds much better than the D2's analog output, but whether or not it makes more sense for you to upgrade to a T2 or to purchase an outboard DAC fed...

    Re: Magico M2 SP review and Measurements

    I characterize Magico speakers as a moderate load. Certainly not as easy to drive as some higher impedance speakers that will work with anything, and not as difficult as some speakers that are known...

    Re: How To Backup Aurender Music Servers

    You could use rsync from a cron job to automate that for you.

    Re: Rogue Preamps

    I heard a Rogue Audio preamp, one of the recently released ones although I cannot remember the model, paired with a Bryston cubed amplifier and it sounded great. Definitely has the tube sound...

    Re: Open Or Closed Headphones?

    There's almost no way open headphones won't disturb other people if you're sitting in the same room. Conversely, if the other person is listening to something themselves, or making noise, you will...

    Re: Today’s Magico Install

    The S3 MkII sounds better overall than the A5, and the M2 is twice the cost of the S3 MkII. It doesn't look like the seating is so far away that you'd need the higher maximum SPL output of the A5.

    Re: I'm Puzzled

    FWIW, steel is a good electromagnetic shield, and it may have also provided some form of chassis ground depending on how it was used and how the rest of the chassis was constructed.

    Re: 8 items. 1 outlet.

    A lot of times you should still plug amplifiers directly into the wall—the components in a smaller or lower-priced power unit won't be beefy enough for the draw of many amplifiers. But some units do...
  12. Re: Stuttering playback with 4TB external hard drive

    I wasn't able to locate the USB power draw requirements for your WD Elements SE 4TB drive, which I saw only has a single USB connection, but you can find external USB hard drives that have separate...

    Re: 8 items. 1 outlet.

    I always recommend voltage regulation because even with very clean and reliable power, there are voltage variations. We're in a relatively new home/neighborhood with reliable and clean power, but I...
  14. Re: Stuttering playback with 4TB external hard drive

    I can't figure out what model of internal disk drive might be inside the 4TB Western Digital Elements SE, but as I mentioned earlier it shouldn't really be an issue. I guess the power draw like...
  15. Re: Stuttering playback with 4TB external hard drive

    What is the model of the Western Digital 4TB external drive?

    Different hard disks are certainly made differently, have different performance specifications, and may satisfy (or fail to satisfy)...

    Re: 8 items. 1 outlet.

    For good value for the money, I recommend the APC H15. It has a few different "isolation" banks, 10 outlets, voltage regulation, and some surge protection and noise filtering. It also has rudimentary...
  17. Re: Any experience with Panasonic DP-UB9000 movie player?

    We're using both the OPPO UDP-203 and the Panasonic DP-UB420 (our current projector does not support Dolby Vision). The UDP-203 for DVDs and Blu-rays, and the DP-UB420 for 4K Blu-ray.

    The UDP-203...

    Another thought is that not everyone hears differences in audio very easily. Sometimes it takes some learning, or someone pointing something out to you, before you know what to listen to and how to...

    It's not obvious that the text "Join our weekly mailing" is actually the placeholder text of a form input field, instead of just informational text. That may be what's tripping you up, Dizzie.

    Re: Searching for the hearing of my youth.

    Lenire is a tinnitus treatment. They don't claim to cure it, but do claim to improve things. So far I haven't read anything absolutely rejecting their claims, although there is plenty of doubt.

    No, we don't carry Auralic. I have experience with them and recommend them as an option to some people depending what they're looking for.
