  1. Yggy absolutely must be used from the BAL connection, the SE is "just there" as a crutch. Supposedly the analog board upgrade made the sound less warm and more precise. My experience with a 9018 Buffalo is that it needed a ton of tweaking to sound right. The FIFO board basically was what made it listenable.
  2. I felt the Schiit Yggdrasil A2 for the price was a better buy. For Terminator money something from Rockna or May Audio might be even better.
  3. Now, don't tell me that I'll be able to mount them flat on a 2U sink!
  4. I liked Denfrips Ares and Terminator. Soekris dac1541 at your price range might work as well.
  5. I get unmatched 2x(2sk389/2sj109) from the EU for that money. I guess it's matching vs thermal bonding here.
  6. If you overdo it, you'd need a softstart circuit. Otherwise you're torturing the ON/OFF switch with inrush currents.
  7. Looks like an Elegia rebadge.
  8. Thirdereded. It's free and you can access your stuff from everywhere. And it's not AutoCAD which is purpose made to suck.
  9. If you know what you're doing, then any 1:2/2:1 trafo will do the trick. Just need to keep in mind the HF and current rating.
  10. I wanted to get the DSP equipped OKTO DAC8. Sadly, miniDSP discontinued the input board, so I was SOL.
  11. Which Gungnir was it? The multibit one or DS? Also keep in mind that you'd need to use BAL outs to really make it sing. SE uses a summation circuit which takes away some magic.
  12. I think that messing with vintage was worth it when DS dacs were still super nasty. Vintage multibit would get you much better timbre, but it's not the last word in a lot of technicalities. Not to mention that you'd need to dick around with USB->SPDIF converters.
  13. I agree. Lately there have been many relatively affordable options for multibit. Denafrips or Soekris for R2R or maybe Schiit Bifrost 2. All of them are very solid.
  14. That sensitivity breaks the law of energy conversion by orders of magnitude. Providing it with any kind of power would murder the universe.
  15. Can Roon do VST? If so, then plonk the plug-in there. If not, then maybe try out Systemwide.
  16. Putting non-coax speakers on their sides is a sure way how to fuxxor up the sweetspot. Put them upside down if you need to get the tweeter lower.
  17. I'm pretty sure he's using Sonarworks calibration with them. He used to be a client of mine.
  18. Here's some porn from me. Just got the new tops for my subs. Each has a FaitalPro HF1440 + 18sound XR1464C horn and four ScanSpeak 15WU midwoofers. Amplification and filtering done by a Hypex FA253 plate amp. Sounds absolutely killer. Sadly, the amp for the big subs seems to be dying, so I'm listening to the tops only. Luckily, they go down to lower thirties. The resulting area of the four midwoofers exceeds a single 10" woofer, so it can go pretty loud as well with that +/-9mm Xlin. Here's a better look of the thing.
  19. Recently a shipment from the US to EU took a month to arrive for me.
  20. Is this the same @thuytn selling the amp? Maybe he can chime in?
