Help! High level subwoofer input on a class D amp introduces ground loop.
@almarg I'l have to read up on your speakers. I hear equalizing software provides real benefits for music.  
Help! High level subwoofer input on a class D amp introduces ground loop.
@millercarbon I love the pictures you have for your system. I imagine it sounds fantastic. If you could only run two subs, would you run them high or low level? Also, how many subs do you run? 4? 
Help! High level subwoofer input on a class D amp introduces ground loop.
@ghnrbob Interesting. My had a high pass filter, where the speakers connected to the sub and only received the higher frequencies. The sub I now use (an older Jamo) connects like a REL where the speaker receives the full range of frequencies and t... 
Streamers and bit rot.
@erik_squires Good thoughts. I was thinking about writing a similar post about how streamer manufacturers are not in a good economic position to author apps. And related is the ability to easily manufacture obsolescence in software. The recent new... 
Help! High level subwoofer input on a class D amp introduces ground loop.
@erik_squires haha. The swarm guys do proselytize here. To be fair to the swarm guys, I believe a swarm setup is the right compromise in a home theater space. In a HT space, bass needs to be similar across a larger seating area, and stress can be ...

Thanks, almarg! 
Smooth sounding integrated
+1 for a Peachtree (try used!). Good DAC to send audio out via Optical from TV. Comes with a remote (necessary for a TV integrated). Probably the best looking integrated to tick the WAF box. You’ll have to use the TV as the hub, and you can have a... 
What player to stream Amazon HD with?
Cool. Maybe Amazon is streaming CD quality to CC then.  
What player to stream Amazon HD with?
@iluvsansui, ear training takes work. I don't think you're actually hearing CD quality or better because Amazon only streams MP3 to Chromecast. If you still have free trials with Tidal or Qobuz, compare some songs over Amazon and one of these othe... 
What player to stream Amazon HD with?
I stream on the cheap, through a tricked out Chromecast Audio. I trialed Amazon HD last year with the hope that I would purchase a high res subscription for the family for Christmas. Unfortunately, Amazon will not stream CD quality or greater to C... 
Streamers with best apps?
@cal3713 do you see any benefit to using Bubble if I only stream from Qobuz? My understanding is that Bubble might work best for those who play music from multiple sources.  
Streamers with best apps?
@Mazian, Yes Chromecast will work with Tidal on both Android and iPhones. If you have at least one castable device (like the TV you mentioned), you should see the cast icon in the top right corner for most of you streaming apps. In fact, if you se... 
Streamers with best apps?
@ MazianI agree that Chromecast, in its basic implementation, is downmarket. But I would point out that the the Chromecast hardware and the Chromecast software are different things that share the same name. Cambridge says they now support the Chro... 
Streamers with best apps?
Hey Mazian, ditch Tidal for the Idagio streaming service. It has the best indexing for classical music and is available in Australia. Idagio also supports Chromecast as does your CXN. You won't have to worry about any streamer software as you'll b... 
Streamers with best apps?
Hi Mazian, I agree that the software side of streaming is incredibly important. Have you tried streaming via Chromecast with your Cambridge CXN? My understanding is that Cambridge incorporates Chromecast into their streaming hardware. Over Chromec...
