Hardware/Software To Manage Multi-format, File-Based Audio Playback
I used to use JRiver to excellent results. Later moved to Roon because of it integration with Tidal. Both sound excellent, can be used with a phone as remote. Roon has the added advantage of being able to stream to multiple devices on your network... 
why do hi-end fuses keep blowing, while std don't?
Thanks for the update.So you keep you amp switch in the on position and turn on/off by turning the isolation transformer? Interesting.My balanced power conditioner trips if I do that, but will keep it in mind.Which isolation transformer are you us... 
Rythmik Vs REL Subwoofers - What to Buy?
I owned Rel Storm III about 6 years ago and moved to two Rythmiks F12 in my DIY sealed cabs that blend with the furniture, sound better, and were cheaper.2 subs is definitely better than one.Currently I run them in an active system so I prevent th... 
Anyone heard Gobel Divin Noblesse?
Thank you. The Epoque is a very different animal, with one driver covering 160Hz and up. Hence the center to center distance between woofers isn't that big of a deal. I don't doubt they are a better speaker than the Divin, though.Great to know the... 
Why the fascination with subwoofers?
@audiokinesis Duke, great to see you join!Would like to ask your point of view about time alignment for subs. I run an active system with digital crossovers, time alignment, room correction. I currently have two sealed 12" Rythmiks playing summed ... 
Why the fascination with subwoofers?
@rauliruegas You are really mad at Ralph. Oh well...FWIW:and he still posting that he needs only two subs because his speakers goes down 20hz ( solid hz. ): so what?, that confirms that he did not understand yet the overall subject in this thread ... 
Why the fascination with subwoofers?
@rauliruegas Not sure why you are attacking atmasphere. He's not selling subs. Over the years Ralph has been as unbiased as I can expect from a manufacturer, even when explaining benefits of a SET, which is a product that competes with his amps. H... 
Why the fascination with subwoofers?
@atmasphere Ralph: if I'm taking measurements and measure a deep valley within the subwoofer frequency, would that be pointing to a standing [email protected] While many records have very similar low bass recording on both channels, to be certain it wo... 
why do hi-end fuses keep blowing, while std don't?
I didn’t bother further. What is reflected in the thread is what I did and learnt, so kept the std fuses and upgraded tubes which have been running for 5 years flawlessly.The amp runs hotter with these tubes than with the original ones which has t... 
Why the fascination with subwoofers?
@atmasphere I'd give it a shot. I don't use the Swarm but if I had it to do over that's the route I'd likely take. Duke is working on a sub system for me though- one that is integrated into a coffee table. It will be used to break up the standing ... 
Why the fascination with subwoofers?
@atmasphere Hello Ralph.I see you use a SWARM system, so the sub woofer frequencies play in mono on a distributed basis. Similar to Earl Geddes approach/theory. Geddes argues for 3 to 4 subs playing the same signal to flatten frequency response at... 
Digital Room Correction For Speakers
samgar,In my prior post I asked which sources you used. This is important because if you had analog sources then a good solution becomes more complex. But I see you are only talking Roon, so that simplifies things.As noted above, "solutions" can b... 
Digital Room Correction For Speakers
Everything you can do to improve the acoustics of the room is what you should do first.On top of that, well implemented digital room correction can be outstanding. I started down that path, then went 4 channels to add stereo subs, and now 6 ways t... 
Will a subwoofer add depth and clarity to my system, or just bass?
Look into Rythmik subs. Powered, servo controlled, with a good set of adjustments available, not very expensive. I made heavy sealed boxes for a couple of their 12" kit. They also sell finished subs. Also look into their double 8" subs, also servo... 
Stereo pre-amps with dual outs for bi-amping and a subwoofer line out
There are many technical reasons why active can be better. The key is implementation, as usual. What you note is an alleged advantage of biamping and in my test it wasn't audible. Active crossovers, on the other hand, have proven sonically superio...
