Re: Musical NAS Drives

... A Netgear FS108 switch also killed the music and had to be immediately exchanged to the GS 108T. ... That’s interesting, but possibly also indicative of the randomness of digital. I actually prefer the FS108 I have over a GS108T that I tried instead. The earth connection on the FS108 is connect...

Re: HD-Audio Challenge II with Tune Dem?

Forget everything you think you know about digital audio and listen to what Peter Q is saying in the video below: https://youtu.be/BijKabByrZQ (just skip forward when he is not talking!) You cannot use tune dem to distinguis between 16/44 and 24/96. Why should 24/96 give more soundstage and details...

Re: Tune Dem of Headphones

Bose NC 700 ... I hope you will like them. I am sort of addicted to my pair ever since we moved into the city centre of Uppsala. Thanks! I’m not really used to listening to music on headphones (previously mainly at the computer and for referencing when mixing, but it is a real relief to use noise c...

Re: Tune Dem of Headphones

The old type with the 1/8" plug and without the DAC in the lightning connector sounds the best of the Apple varieties. I haven't heard the new Pro variety. I mostly use Bose NC 700 headphones. Noise canceling is fantastic and the mics give outstanding quality on conversations in noisy surroundings....

Re: GIGAPORT HD/HD+

I can confirm that high-res recordings have much better potential to sound good than the CD-format. This is based on tests done with both pro-recording equipment as well as on bought high-res music files. When doing my own recordings I have found that, with the equipment I have tested the higher the...

Re:

Spec sheet says they go down to 65Hz Aktiv but only 72Hz passive? Yes, these are probably right. But I presume it's the -3dB figure, which shows where they begin to roll off. The aktiv 109's roll off steeply in the lowest bass, where for instance Ninka will be more flat and let you hear more of tha...

Re: Linn T-Kable worth the upgrade

I am not a big fan of the newer Mogami T.Kable and find its predecessor more musical. You can still buy the grey T.Kable as the Akito arm cable, it also comes with the newer Linn aluminum DIN plug for the bottom of the arm. I would say it would be more musical than the Majik cable, although I haven...

Anyway; One of the benefits with vinyl (apart of the listening experience) is the large album sleeves and the additional experience that brings. In a try to offer something similar to that the Acoustic Project String Ensemble - Studio Live album comes with a large sized PDF (36x18 cm in 100 % view) ...

Re: hcl (@Rocred Records)

Thanks for your support! Making vinyl is rather expensive and I fail to see how that would benefit the music. The album is mixed to sound the way it sounds (on a really good streamer such as the top Linn streamers), not how it would sound after it has gone through the process of being pressed to vin...

Re: Determining optimum solder temperature

It looks quite ok, but a bit low on solder. Add some (maybe) 30% more than you done to the joints in the pictures. When applying solder and heating after, pay attention to what happens to the solder. There will be a point when the solder suddenly breaks into more free floating. That is when to stop ...

Re: hcl (@Rocred Records)

We are often asked "If the album is any good?" and to answer such a question with some credibility is difficult without any objective references, so external reviews are very important. As an independent actor on a crowded market it is however not that easy to get past the initial gate even being co...

The market section is for equipment only. Perhaps you could mention your recordings elsewhere? For instance in the 'Me and My System' section?
