SD3100HV DAC extremely flexible!
No I haven't used streaming with ROON. I use HDD PC sourced streaming right now through USB to the SD3100HV using T+A's USB driver. Using REDBOOK CD, I use a PS Audio Memory Player and XLR AES/EBU input cable. This is PCM only, of course.The USB o... 
SD3100HV DAC extremely flexible!
First go here;https://help.nativedsd.com/en/articles/3072297-dsd-512-but-how-is-it-created-and-whyNative DSD512 (or even 1024!) can be better because we gain more than we lose during the conversion process since it allows better DA filter tech tha... 
SD3100HV DAC extremely flexible!
The SD3100HV has built in control front end and is referenced as a streaming DAC .The SD 3100 HV is a purist converter / streamer which in an HV system acts as ultra-high quality player and converter for every imaginable digital source. Go here ht... 
Higher End DACs
DAC sound as different as phono cartridges. We seem to be stuck comparing really good DAC's that alter balance a little here or there, verses comparingnthem to lesser DAC's that are just not able to even compete in the "best" DAC space. I had a so... 
Phono stage picking up radio signals?
There is a lot of necessary missing information in this thread. A SPG, Single Point Ground is NOT a shield, it is an antenna and DOES put current in the "shield" that is now just a "wire" at this point. How do you think SPG works? CURRENT flows fr... 
T+A M40 HV mono review.
They run $29,500 each before all the normal dealer work.┬áIf you look at "good" amplifiers, they are actually on the lower end of the "stupid" money range. What they do, is deliver on the promise of better sound. I've had these several weeks now an... 
Benz Micro Ruby Z
I find the lower you go in resistive loading the farther back and smaller the center image. It gets to be very good sounding at 500 ohms or over. I use 1K and it images nicely and sounds very balanced using a PASS LABS XP-25 and VPI classic 3.0 ta... 
VPI classic 3.0 Signature anti-skate.
Yes, That was re-installed to great effect. 
PASS LABS XP-30
I don't like to use equipment as tone controls, the speakers and cartridge are bad enough. I go for as close to getting out of the way of the signal as I can. A circuit can be SLOWER as needed but it can't be FASTER than the applied signal. It doe... 
Anyone auditioned Pass Labs XP-30 preamp?
XP-30 ImpressionsI've been developing the Belden ICONOCLAST TM series of audio cables, and have used a Pass Labs XP-10 almost through the process for it's stunningly good resolution and transparency compared to about anything I threw at it. I was ... 
I've heard the MartinLogan CLX.... WOW
The CLX is a very unique product, and one that captures music oh so well. The music should add the "color" and "warmth" to the sound, not the hardware. When we really get the chance to change the hardware for something that is a BIG step in the ri... 
I've heard the MartinLogan CLX.... WOW
There seems to be a lot of misinformation on the CLX. I own a set of CLX, AND a set of DynAudio C4's, so don't for a second think that I am unaware of high-end dynamic driver products. - The CLX impedance does indeed drop to the input impedance of... 
Why are we going 300 or more directions?
JneutronYou seem to be a little too easy to get upset about some things so it's going to be hard to please you. I'll do my best.Zero capacitance? Sure, my perfect conductor example was just that. You can't do anything in that cables example let al...

Why are we going 300 or more directions?
Some have asked about ZOBEL networks as we've moved along. Here is a good analysis of what they can do for you;http://sound.westhost.com/cable-z.htmGranted, we don't have a true transmission line with a speaker cable since output, cable and load i...
