Re: JBL 3677

The Ultratouch denim insulation worked excellent, very easy to do. Just used some wood glue to hold it in place, didn't stuff overly tight, covered everything that was previously covered plus the bracing directly above woofer but not on the tweeter side of that. How thick is the UDI R13 and is it a...

The Hemiola will be sold through dealers, and you should start being able to hear one sometime in the new year.
Please, keep us updated.

Re: JBL 3677

My 3677s are stock with one exception:

Between the terminal where the crossover is mounted to and the speaker box is a thin piece of rectangular cardboard.
I removed this and found them a little bit more tuneful.

Re: Meicord Vs Blue Jeans

Here’s a couple of recordings using the BJ between Melco and KDS followed by a couple using the Meicord https://www.dropbox.com/sh/g5tb90zk1jshwjj/AAArf3WcbCgWhdLHwXenNY3_a?dl=0 Spannko, thank you for sharing these.

Re: Best sounding LAN cable for DS

Sorry, I did not read the complete thread:

Is there a consensus on Meicord vs. Blue Jeans?

Re: JBL 3677

The ebay unit seems to be the same as mine.

I bought my pair new in 2016 just before they were discontinued.

Re: SACD DSD extraction

I listened to very musical sounding CDs. However imo, the best medium to capture music in all its glory are pure analog tape recorders with 15ips or 30ips. The alternative and digital gold standard at the moment is DSD256. Linn Records for example do record classical music like Haydn Nelson Mass in ...

Re: SACD DSD extraction

Yes, SACD as a format is only good for Sony, but afaik DSD per se is free of royalty fees. But I am not sure if it makes sense to compare SACD and CD layers of hybride SACDs. SACD is based on DSD64 and this format is obsolete in my view in 2019. The advantages of DSD shine with higher rates like DSD...

Re: SACD DSD extraction

I know many think DSD is a bad idea but I would like to better understand why and if it might give more musicality than PCM. I do not think DSD is a bad idea....... You can also convert files or music from Qobuz etc. with software like Audirvana to DSD128 and stream it via UPnP to your Katalyst. In...

Re: HAKAI playground

I wish I could Matt but Moode went down the RPI road exclusively from memory. It's a shame because the reviews are very good. Just a suggestion to try the new Allo USBridge Signature with MoOde. There is a very good first listening impression on diyaudio: https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/vendor-s-ba...

Sunday at X-Fi

My wife and I arrived at around 12:30h at X-Fi and we went straight to room 26. There was a hearty welcome by Marco and Fredrik and it was such a pleasure for us to meet you both in person for the first time. The new Graham floorstanders were playing and it sounded really good, I had no clue that th...

This is indeed the newest speaker of Graham Audio but unfortunately not available in time for the show.
As Fredrik mentioned likely the same with Klangedang Version 6?
