  1. Past hour
  2. You'll have to come and talk with my wife about that! I've done what I can, including the 'rack' having to remain an Ikea Besta which I've modded by screwing the whole thing together, double shelving the shelfs and a 3" thick butcher block on one for the amp and Herbie's grungebuster under all of the feet. There's always compromises to be made.... and moving speakers out into the room, esp with younger kids running about, is not one of them. 😅
  3. Sometimes Device Manager might contain too many inactive USB devices and then things could get quite tricky, usually I would simply clean things up and then it's good to go. Unplug everything from all USB ports except for keyboard / mouse, then launch Device Manager and do this Go through every single category and find all "grayed out" or "dimmed" items that are related to USB, just highlight each and every item (yes, only one item at a time and it's a PITA) and delete those USB-related items one by one. Make sure that you'll untick / uncheck the box whenev
  4. Today
  5. If I may ask: why do you sell this item?
  6. I just laid up a few bottles of a wine that starts drinking well in 20 years. The snide comments from friends and family have been amusing, e.g. "Your aide can remove the cork", "The nurse can use it to clean your bed sores", and "It'll keep the feeding tube from clogging". Fortunately, I'm impervious to insult. I bought it to enjoy at my 94th birthday party! As I recall, he was a diabetic and spent a few days in what I suspect was a hypoglycemic coma. He did lose some mental acuity but apparently recovered most or all of it in rehab. He truly dodged a bullet.
  7. How about Adam? They seem to make a bunch of studio monitors. Too neutral??
  8. Thanks all for the recommendations. I was thinking perhaps $1000ish max. I’m considering the AudioEngine because I had heard of it. I will look into the others.
  9. Normally, there's a big difference between microphone-in (pink jack) and line-in (blue jack) inputs. What you want is a line-in input on the PC, if you have it.
  10. I have seen Prince Live. He was such an amazing entertainer and his guitar playing was just amazing.
  11. 100+ % What Makes 100%?What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life? Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions: IF: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26. THEN: H-A-R-D-W-O-R - K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11
  12. Prince was an amazing writer, musician, etc. He didn't have to blow his horn.
  13. Just for the record I'm based in UK. Not that it should make much of a difference to this issue. My profile says UK but that isn't shown here. Apologies for the digression.
  14. Jerry Garcia re-learned how to play guitar after coma and was performing for almost ten years after that.
  15. I am going to order the iFi for DC power supplies. If I understand you correctly, you use 2 iFi consecuitvely like this? Thank you! Shanti --> iFi DC iPurifier2 Active Audio Noise Filter/Conditioner for DC Power Supplies --> iFi DC iPurifier2 Active Audio Noise Filter/Conditioner for DC Power Supplies --> Allo's clean side.
  16. Do you thinks this an appropriate solution? I should invest in a VPN solution, create a fake US account, just to get hold of the media partner playlists. Shouldn’t Qobuz as a service make them available for their customers wherever they are in the world?
  17. Thanks for sharing your wonderful trip with us. I felt like I was there by way of your great wordsmithing. Good job! Always wondered what those monsters sound like - Now I don't have to go out and buy them. PS: Whats that center rectangle - clear plasticky-looking thing?

    Thanks. I was only surprised by your formulation as it indicated you have 48k based files and AFAIK no one distributes 48k based DSD files. You probably converted them from PCM. :)
  21. I have tried the Shanti with 1, 2 and 3 iFi iPurifiers. I found one iPurifier made the sound more relaxed, and improved fine detail and ambience, and moreso when 2 were added together. 3 in series improved still further, but only marginally. however, like all things, whether that sounds good to us as individuals is a very personal thing. You could say the iPurifiers can also make the sound ‘more boring’, which they (arguably) did to a point in my system; but then that’s often the effect of reducing distortion. Audio FX units (think the ‘classic’ Aphex Aural
  22. I went through a period where just about every upgrade moved me a few steps forward in most areas but a step backwards in the bass. I think I finally moved past that last year after moving my speakers and also adding ASC isothermal tube traps. For two many years I neglected my room. Quite astonishing the improvements once I did focus on the room though.
  23. Are you sure? I've had to do some heroic searching to find certain albums before, and then later I am searching a related artist, or the same artist but a different album and the one I was searching for the previous time comes right up much like Chris described above. I'll try to remember an example and share it.
  24. Fancy being so stupid as to use a password like MAGA2020 (MakeAmericaGreatAgain2020) He didn't even use 2 step verification, but apparently does now.
  25. Thanks @suzywong Heading to Fry's to get some soon
