  3. Re: help needed in troubleshooting a faint hissing sound from speakers!!

    i only have this one pre-amp as i was using an integrated previously. also, the dealer is a 5+ hour drive. in any event, the various tests i ran pretty much confirm the noise is coming from the pre-...
  4. Re: help needed in troubleshooting a faint hissing sound from speakers!!

    i have two sets of pre-amp tubes: one is the set of stock tubes and the other is a set of valvo/telefunken NOS tubes from VTS. i observe the hissing with both sets.
  5. Re: help needed in troubleshooting a faint hissing sound from speakers!!

    the pre-amp was bought new about 2 months ago. the hiss is not something one would normally notice unless looking for it. it has probably always been there but i never noticed it until a few days ago...
  6. Re: help needed in troubleshooting a faint hissing sound from speakers!!

    thanks for this thoughtful and detailed post which is of great help. given the testing i had done, it is hard to think of a conclusion other than the one you suggest.

    Re: On the future of Roon...

    the DSD rate is related to the DAC and whether or not it can accept a native DSD signal or whether DoP (DSD over PCM) is required.

    is it not appealing, that summer feeling?

    grilling and chilling with an album to fit the weather ... the fun quotient of this one is off-the-charts !!

    Re: What are you listening to tonight ?

    yesterday i went to listen and saw the version in qobuz has been replaced with a new hi-res version which is almost certainly from the 2020 craft recordings remaster
