  1. Re: imputing speaker impedance curve | volume level to generate 1-watt

    @aKnyght I missed looking at the amplifier you are using.

    The 20Hz - 20kHz (-6dB) measurement was most likely done with a resistive load, and is not indicative of what the frequency response would...
  2. Re: Magico M2 - Stereophile Loudspeaker of the Year 2020

    I knew I read it somewhere, and I found it again in the Editors' Choice section now that Stereophile has posted the results on their website (bold added by me for emphasis):

    Re: Speakers esthetics

    People's preferences and the amount of weight they apply to aesthetics versus functionality varies. Likewise, things change with the times, and with the technology and our understanding of what...
  4. Re: Introducing my product - Sleevenote, a new type of music player

    Hello. I read about the Sleevenote earlier, and I believe you intended to link to the Indiegogo crowdfunding page: Sleevenote.

    Personally, I would be curious as to how you would position...
  5. Re: Can you recommend complete amp+speaker setup for high-res music streaming w/Tidal Connect? (~10k)

    Clipping in the encoded digital audio data or clipping/distortion in the reproducing electronics voltage output is different than using clipping or distortion to create a sound that is then...
  6. Re: Can you recommend complete amp+speaker setup for high-res music streaming w/Tidal Connect? (~10k)

    Reading back my post, I can see how what I wrote might be interpreted to equate listening fatigue with either a warm sound or harmonic distortion. That wasn't my direct intent, although from my...
  7. Re: Can you recommend complete amp+speaker setup for high-res music streaming w/Tidal Connect? (~10k)

    @metalgod01 The people I know that like heavy metal or metal in general tend to prefer being able to hear everything clearly and with detail, across the frequency spectrum but I think mid-range and...

    Re: Using a Universal Remote

    I really wish Logitech would put in the effort to rebuild their native macOS application for the newest versions of macOS. Their desktop app for Harmony remote configuration is much more powerful and...
  9. Re: Magico M2 - Stereophile Loudspeaker of the Year 2020

    Alon himself would be the first to tell you the M3 is still a better speaker than the M2.
  10. Magico M2 - Stereophile Loudspeaker of the Year 2020

    I just received the latest issue of Stereophile, and the Magico M2 is named their loudspeaker of the year for 2020. There's a note that the M2 won by several votes, in particular calling out the...

    Re: CH Precision A1

    This review at Positive Feedback specifically compares the CH Precision A1 to the Soulution 710:


    There's also this old thread right here on AudioShark: CH Precision vs. Soulution.

    Re: CH Precision A1

    I heard the CH Precision A1 amplifiers with the Magico A5 (and I think also earlier with the S5 MkII) speakers at the Magico factory and the combination sounded really, really good. I'm not sure what...

    Re: Lumin X1 Favorite interconnect?

    We're using Acoustic Zen WOW XLR interconnects between the Lumin X1 and Lumin AMP.
  14. Re: Anomaly between my Lumin U1Mini and my DAC

    You might check if you have "audio re-sampling" turned on in the Lumin device preferences?
  15. Re: imputing speaker impedance curve | volume level to generate 1-watt

    Maybe, given the 1kHz reading. If the manufacturer's 97dB @ 1m @ 1W is based on a 1kHz measurement and the speaker impedance is actually 8 ohms at 1kHz. The nominal impedance could be 8 ohms but the...
  16. Re: imputing speaker impedance curve | volume level to generate 1-watt

    Performing a frequency sweep at a given volume level is only going to tell you the in-room frequency response, and as such isn't very useful for figuring out anything about the speaker's electrical...

    Re: Turntable , location?

    I'd recommend placing the phono stage next to the turntable, and running XLR cables from the phono stage to the rest of your gear if that would be a 20' long run.
  19. Re: Help me choose speakers for a “HiFi bar” experience!

    A routing/matrix processor and wired in-wall/on-wall speakers would be typical. In-wall/on-wall keeps the speakers out of the way of people and safe from accidental damage, and the matrix processor...

    Re: Ripping Vinyl

    You might want to save intermediate files as well, to hear the differences before-and-after each step you go through. That might help you better narrow down what steps are having what impact on the...

    Re: NAD M17 V2 w/ Dirac Live - WOW!

    My understanding is that Audyssey measures the frequency response over a time window (to account for the room) and then applies PEQ filters.

    Dirac does that but also measures the delays of...

    I think there are two routes you could go here: a casual less expensive USB audio interface or a moderately-priced to expensive higher quality professional audio interface (still USB). The most...

    Re: Phono stage candidates

    I use the SimAudio 610LP. If you're partial to tubes, it probably won't really be to your taste unless you address that downstream. But I think it's outstanding and haven't gotten an itch to upgrade...

    Re: Lumin Remote Control

    This is great! Will the IR receiver be sold separately, or will any USB IR receiver work? For people who want to use their universal remotes or control systems.
  25. Re: Would a D2 be an upgrade to Simaudio 430HAD DAC?

    I have experience with both the Simaudio Moon 430HAD and Lumin D2. They're very different sounding so whether or not you would consider the D2 an upgrade would really depend on what you're looking...
