Run Roon in an iMac or dedicated Mini
dbphd, I use the ISO Regen with LPS 1 but with the QB9 Twenty, it's probably not necessary. I'd like to hear what a difference the Ether Regen would make in streaming however I've got other priorities.  
Run Roon in an iMac or dedicated Mini
dpphd, I originally bought my QB9 when it was in its first form. I believe around early 2011. I compared it to a tube Wavelength DAC at the dealer and the QB9 crushed it. Later Ayre offered a $500.00 upgrade which I opted for and the improvement w... 
Run Roon in an iMac or dedicated Mini
Don’t know if this helps but I have an M1 Mac Mini as my core. Then an internet connection from my router to a Bryston Pi as a Roon endpoint. From the Bryston I use a USB cable into my Ayre QB 9 Twenty DAC. I use my iPad as a remote. The only prob... 
Vinyl Newbie - So Many Questions!
doodledan, if your motor is sliding around, try sitting it on some dampening material. That is, if it doesn’t cause a height issue with your belt. Herbies Audio makes some thin but affective dampening sheets which may help. Additionally, I agree ... 
Vinyl Newbie - So Many Questions!
lewm, it doesn’t make sense why some records play fine while others create unwanted noise. I agree that resistance might lead to unwanted noise but wouldn‘t that be consistent with all pressings?

I was reading about your nice table. The review mentioned that the cartridge should be checked for alignment with an alignment template to be certain that it's correct. It also suggested that the cartridge be as forward as possible. If the cartrid... 
Detachable Head shell or Not?
As much as I like to talk about tonearms and head shells, I feel no hesitation to share that I strictly rely on a Toyo 45 A 4X5 field camera for my photographic endeavors. A Pentax Zone 5 or 6 spot meter is an absolute must. My two lenses are; Sch...

Bicycles are great for enhancing free testosterone.  
Transrotor turntables
I was living in Köln and I saw one of the flagship Transrotors in a store window. I was wondering if it used a NASA built motor to drive it. I asked the owner what it would cost for him to ship it to the U.S. and that’s when any ideation of owning... 
"Transferred from original analogue master tapes"
It’s preferred to use the original source. I have cd’s that were remastered from wax cylinder’s. They sound great, given they were recorded in 1918 without electrical equipment. Sometimes an old 78 rpm shellac record is the best you’re gonna get. ... 
Amplifier Output Relays
imhififan, I played the amp today while listening through headphones and it played flawlessly. Pretty much what I was hoping for.  
Amplifier Output Relays
Also, my tech found two bad solder joints and a loose wire and fixed those many months ago when I initially started having problems. When he found the relay was reacting to his tapping on it, he checked those solder joints and they were good. When... 
Amplifier Output Relays
Yeah, according to the manufacturer, the headphones use a separate relay. His instructions are the same; tap the relay to see if the tone changes, try the headphones and try different inputs.  
Amplifier Output Relays
I've been In contact with the manufacturer who's been nothing short of amazing since the issue started with the right channel. His comment is that the right channel issue was with the output relay. The issue with the left channel started shortly a... 
Amplifier Output Relays
I'm assuming that once the relays are exchanged that operations will go back to normal.
