  1. I enjoyed your article and want to try it myself. What is the name of the DSP VST file? I cant seem to find it anywhere?
  2. The Teac editor is converting to PCM then back to DSD. If you bring in the files and compare them in Audition, you will see changes to the file even without doing any editing at all

  5. Should I post reviews for products that are no longer for sale by the manufacturer? In other words it may be available on the used market but cannot be purchased new. Also, what about subwoofers? What category would a product like the sweetvinyl sugarcube products go into? https://sweetvinyl.com/ They digitize records in real time to remove surface noise as well as allow recording of the records along with retrieval of metadata. Is there a method that people could use to ask followup questions to the contributors of these reviews?
  6. Is there any way to go back and edit my own review? That might be a good thing as opinions may change as one uses a product.
  7. Pros Excellent sounding speaker... with good amplification Low cost for a good 3-way speaker Cons Requires good amplification Cheap vinyl finish Low efficiency and low impedance I tried this out on the Marantz NR1200 AVR and was not blown away by the sound. It was good, but not great. I then looped in the Benchmark AHB2 power amp and wow, what a difference! Therein lies the conundrum. How do you rate a budget speaker that doesn't sound amazing until you drive it with an expensive high-quality amplifier? It does sound much better than the pr

  9. Pros: Low Cost Simple to use Good and clean power Pre-outs Subwoofer support Streaming ability - local and internet based Plays DSD without conversion Cons: Streaming does not include many services Network stability is not the best No room correction No filtering and crossover settings available for the subwoofer output Android control app is not great This integrated amp is a low-cost way to support analog as well as digital sources with plenty of power. There are several ways to stream both local files as we

  15. Perhaps a category for Preamps/Integrated Amps/AVRs
