    Shit, Jacob looks like my doppelganger!

    Pass Labs discussion

    I find the price to be a bit high for a SMPS powered 7Wpc amp which goes over 1% THD at 2W. It's a decent training kit for a first project or just finding out how amps function theory wise.

    Utopia is grossly overpriced for what it is sound wise. If you like stats and can get them for significantly cheaper, then go for it!

    Generally yeah. But you need to keep in mind magnet material - ferrite will always be bigger and heavier.

    Dynalo Mini enclosure group buy

    I'm with @Kerry on this one - can't see much sense in PCB screws, if it's well fastened to the back panel. Great work overall!
  6. So, how's the sound?

    Not Tuned, Characterless, Boring To listen Speaker System

    How low do you want the system to go? It's surprisingly easy to find studio mains 2nd hand, because many large studios are closing down these days. Also what's room's gonna be like? There's no system brilliant enough to not be rendered mediocre by crappy room acoustics. As for DAC's, I'd very much recommend the new RME ADI-2 Pro DAC. RME makes rock solid gear and ADI-2 Pro both versions finally add crazy good sound to that. And 5 band parametric EQ to fight room problems.

    Sennheiser HE-1

    Had some time with the old and new Orphies. Didn't mind the new one too much, wasn't unbearably bright, so they haven't pulled a HD800. The old one had considerably more brightness. Listened to Stax 007 Mk II at the same day and I'm not sure if I was missing much from that combo compared to the 50k one.
  10. Looks nice. Even for a bass amp (if it ends up not being the second coming) it's a pretty good price.

    Focal Elear Headphone

    In my opinion the aggressive sound signature is mostly owed to an upper mid suckout which gives an impression that the headphone sounds quiet, while the actual SPL is pretty high. So you have to really crank it so it feels right. The upper mid suckout is the Fec...erm Focal house tuning. I don't mind it too much, but it can be dangerous as it makes you expose your ears to higher SPL's.

    My idea was running Reaper to do routing and apply the necessary correction through AU plugins. Will need to learn to use Smaart tho.

    Finns know their speakers. Cast aluminium chassis, twin Class-AB amps and a metal tweeter that sounds anything but metal. The minimum diffraction enclosure seems to be working as I feel the imaging is as good as the coax LS50ies. Despite playing below 40Hz very well a digital crossover sends everything below 60Hz to MiniDSP 2x4HD which room corrects the signal before it's amplified by a IMG Stageline STA-800D amp for subs. My next stop is swapping the miniDSP for an Mac Mini to run digital frequency and phase correction.

    NAD Hybrid Digital DAC Amplifiers

    It's running Hypex uCD modules. They're not crappy receiver grade, but I'd use them for bass only, because up top I always find them too Class-D'ey. If you're still looking for a KEF LS50, I'd say skip the NAD and get the LS50 wireless version. I found the LS50 to be rather picky amp wise. It needed a hearty 100W amp which could do low impedances with finesse.

    Wood Speaker Stands?

    Why not get stands with little more... function?
