HDMI confusion: Monoprice vs. Blue Jeans
This is an ancient thread, but I was searching for Monoprice stuff and noticed it. Blue Jeans has written some articles about HDMI and my understanding is that it’s the connections and not the wires that are the key attribute. If the cable isn’t m... 
Hiss Noise From Internet Inputs Only
My Airport Extreme Router will sometimes put some noise in my speakers that I can almost completely eliminate by rotating the router on the cabinet.  I don't hear it as much with my Pathos amplifier (tube pre) as I did with my Yaqin MC-30L (all tu... 
Hiss Noise From Internet Inputs Only
If it's the same Tivo connected with the same cables then I'd guess it's related to Netflix and YouTube and not anything you have control over.  I have never used Tivo so am not familiar with it's connections and such.

Does It have to be loud?
I did some measuring at my listening position today with some jazz music that is piano, drums, and a bass.  I turned it up loud by my standards using an FFT application on my iPhone measured peaks in the mid 80s and the average was probably the us...

Is Tidal capable of channels like Pandora has?  What is the interface like? 
How to bridge a Pathos Classic One
Did you figure this out?  I only have one of these amplifiers but am curious about how the volume would be controlled with a pair of them bridged.  
To keep, upgrade or change
Based on recent experience, be very careful when approaching change in your system. I purchased a new integrated and wasn’t happy with it but it also lowered my satisfaction with my original system. In the end, I did pick up yet another amplifier ... 
Has Anyone Uesed A PrimaLuna Amp With Harbeth Speaker's
I would suggest emailing Gig Harbor Audio as I am pretty sure they sell both brands and know they would happily give you the benefit of their experience no matter where you live. The owner is honest and always happy to help.  
Does It have to be loud?
I can’t say what dB level I consider to be loud, but I am pretty sure it would not exceed 90 dB. A lot lot of my listening is done after the kids are in bed and with a small house loud volumes are not an option. One thing that that I have really e... 
System Dissatisfaction - My Own Fault
So far so good with the new Pathos Classic One mkIII integrated amplifier.  If I could do anything differently it would have been to just purchase it when it was first available rather than messing around with the Cambridge Audio gear.  In the end... 
I think I've Just Seen Absolute Proof That Audiophiles Are Insanely Gullible
I was just chatting with a friend of mine today about some audiophile products that could easily be marketed with similar pseudoscience to what many products currently have.Without stepping on too many toes, if Romex wire is what's in the wall why... 
System Dissatisfaction - My Own Fault
One of my friends that an EE and audio aficionado stopped by today for some listening. His description was that the Parhis has a much more 3D soundstage than my Yaqin and it makes everything sound effortless.  He mentioned that I hadn’t been doing... 
System Dissatisfaction - My Own Fault
@georgehifi, I already made the purchase and if there’s an issue I certainly don’t hear it that I have noticed. 
System Dissatisfaction - My Own Fault
@georgehifi, I am interested in your thoughts on the Pathos Classic One MKiii being a good match for my Focal 836v [email protected], I picked up the Pathos for around 1/3 of the original retail price (about 1/2 price if I factor in the loss on t...
