Re: Hi Res Albums - any else noticed issues

There are many threads on here discussing Hi Res music and the fact some of the music on sale is NOT Hi Res and just up sampled CDs

Re: What vinyl did you spin recently?

Received this morning. Donald Fagen - THE NIGHTFLY - Mobil Fidelity One Step Pressing. Had to share this. Quite the BEST sound I have ever heard from my system (and an excellent album too). If MoFi start doing this regularly I am going to have to get a job! NICE :) can you share the link to the exa...

Re: Building a Raspberry Pi system from scratch

Yes there is a lot of data out there these days

I will be using a direct I2S interface to my DAC which should give great improvements so not SPDIF or USB needed

I enjoyed my BMW 330 but it was nowhere near the AMG. Whats the sound system like? Competes with the W11's etc................? The sounds...

Yes AMG powered V6 twin turbo 0-62 in 4.5 secs ;D ITS AMAZING! So the W13 have an internal amp just to drive the bass, then your amp drives the mid/treble? Very nice indeed. I hope you stick to the speed limit young man! Yes, the W13 just requires your amp to drive the mid/bass, widebander and twee...

Re: Showcase

Is that an AMG-tuned Merc? Having heard the W11's, and given the W13 is the same speaker but the bass unit replaced by twin 13" drivers powered by an internal 700W amp, I'd not be so sure you wouldn't trade! Yes AMG powered V6 twin turbo 0-62 in 4.5 secs ;D ITS AMAZING! So the W13 have an inte...

Re: Grrrrr streaming pc dead .... [now rebuilt]

Excellent and as I thought. In my case I will be using the I2S output to directly feed my I2S bus in the DDDAC.

This update in my DAC means I wont need my streamer at all, has to improve the sound right.....
