Re: Lingo 1 recap result

Fiddled for two days with a Lingo 4 installation and am now much more positive about it.

There are some tricks necessary to get the best out of it. PM me if you want to know more, as I don't feel like making a ruckus.

Re: Absolute Bargains!

That's positively a steal, Sound Hound. I hope for your sake that it will rise in the last minute.

I do admire your courage to do it the good old way of starting at £1 in this very stale almost-Brexit market.

Re: Playground for practical listening exercices

After a number of different speaker positions I decided its time to post new clips. Kaos did his best to steal my seat, again. My wife would just not let me listen to music, she wanted to test more = I had to do all the work :P First same position as before, 29 cm from back wall: https://photos.smu...

Re: WARNING about 4mm plugs

Hi Sound Hound! I've followed Naim's example on this one. There's an EU directive that says banana connectors should not be used on electrical equipment, because they can be pulled out and (presumably by a child) inserted into a mains outlet, causing an accident. Like Naim, I made a connector with t...

Re: Optimum House Wiring

I’ve made some changes to the power cables feeding my system. To avoid bias, I’ll describe the changes after everyone’s had time to listen and comment. https://www.dropbox.com/s/h9cie51vqa068j5/E1.mov?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/0ft9ownsy8pxwzj/R1.mov?dl=0 I prefer the second clip (R1).

Some friendly tips when making comparative clips: • Film or record from the exact same position each time. • Try keeping the volume identical each time. • It's much easier comparing two clips than three or more. More than two decreases certainty, simplicity and participation. • If using a phone, qui...

Re: JBL 3677

I replaced series resistors with the MOX resistors. When I looked closer at the wiring I noticed it was tinned copper so I just twisted it and put some heatshrink towards the end to make it manageable. I cannot see any reason to replace the speaker wire, as tinned copper is perfect for the speaker....

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. ...
