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

Re: Showcase

I get to the speed limit very fast of course ;-) I remember Clarkson once wrote that they went from nought to 60 without involving any of the speeds in between. 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...

Re: Showcase

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.....

Re: Boenicke W11

Wow Richard so pleased for you and makes me want to try them myself.

So while these are not cheap I suspect they offer a great part exchange deal to try to ensure a sale. It makes sense for all parties if that can be done.

Re: Tidal MQA .. views and user experience

I started with Qobuz and loved it. Decided I wanted to try Roon so switched to Tidal as Qobuz not integrated to Roon. Loved the experience but not signed up to Roon yet as I will need to build my Roon Rock core first. I am too busy to do that and still have a long over due commitment to finish a DDD...
