Need Impressions of SoundKaos Vox
A note of Avalon speakers.  These use the older generations of Accuton ceramic drivers.  I have heard a lot of speakers using these Accuton drivers.  The result is extremely clean audio, but in my opinion these Accuton drivers are too controlled a... 
Is This Morgan Freeman?
I definitely get some European or European English accent and vocal intonations.  Also, too much midrange in this voice when compared to Morgan Freeman. 
Anyone else attend the California Audio Show in Oakland?
The Sound Kaos Vox speakers were very high resolution and very natural sounding with a a lot of texture.  Very neutral and surprising amount of bass.  The high frequencies were not bright/harsh which was unexpected due to the ribbon tweeter.  The ... 
GIK Acoustics or another option ?
The performance of GIK versus any other brand are pretty much the same based on panel thickness.  That means that a 2' x 4' panel with 2" thickness from GIK for $60 is going to perform the same as a standard 2'x4' 2" panel from any other manufactu... 
Need your recommendation on a 5 or 7 channel amp
Likely current capability.  The AT182x series uses smaller power supply capacitor banks and I don't think it's a fully balanced/differential amp (it's a single-ended amp board instead).AT1820: 22,400uf power supply capacitance per channel, 4 outpu...

I need to make a correction on the Roku Ultra DC plug size.  It is actually 4.75mm x 1.7mm. 
Questions on PC audio calibration
This caught my interest even though I had no direct experience, so I had to go on a google chase.  I could not find much, but I did find one discussion:https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php?topic=119730.0It looks like WOK VST plugin + Foobar2000 VST 2... 
Lower voltage caps
I would say it really depends on application.  If you are using these for a speaker internal crossover network as a filter for midrange or tweeter, I would say that the 400V caps are likely going to be fine.  I have seen caps as low as 250V in a c... 
Need your recommendation on a 5 or 7 channel amp
I think the Sonus Faber are excellent speakers to listen to.  However, they do use their silk dome (soft dome) tweeter which is not as fast and high resolution as the metal/beryllium/diamond tweeters out there.You also chose the Marantz AV7706 pro...

Correct, you would no longer be using the streaming function of the LG OLED.  The LG TV would now become only a video output display device.Yes, both audio and video signal would be part of the HDMI cable connection from the Roku into the Lyngdorf... 
Converting RCA to XLR
My understanding is that the Oppo uses both the 5.1 left/right outputs as well as the XLR left/right outputs for generating sound from both multi-channel movie source and stereo music sources, so he should be just fine.The Oppo XLR outputs use a s... 
Converting RCA to XLR
I would not recommend using RCA-to-XLR adapters unless you absolutely had to.The idea of using the switch on the back of the A51 to switch between RCA and XLR inputs is likely your best result.  It's really not a bad idea and you can keep all cabl...

A Roku device is an external source unit that is used to stream audio/video from different sources such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc.  It sounds like you are using the built-in app inside your TV to stream from Netflix, etc.You would buy the Roku...

In my experience, video is not necessarily degraded when passed through a processor (though some may actually degrade or even improve on the video).  However, using ARC is never the best way to get sound out of the system.  For top audio quality, ... 
Digital coax from CD player to DAC, RCA or BNC-RCA?
I did a bunch of testing and made several attempts to test different RCA plugs in a digital cable.  In all instances, the sound was always the best using BNC connectors on the end of the cable and then attaching a BNC-to-RCA adapter.  I tried DH L...
