  1. Will I lose any sound quality as opposed to using the volume control as part of my Benchmark Pre Amp? Thanks
  2. I am after a device which has all of the following. I cannot find one! Can anyone help? xlr outpower switch on the front ability to turn all lights off headphones output volume control
  3. Has anyone done this on those cabled that basically route three devices into one plug? Is there electrically speaking any different froma multi plug extension lead? Eg MCRU Hydra Power Lead
  4. I recently downloaded Thesycon USB Descriptor Dumper And it produced this report. WHat does it mean? I had understood the reports would allow me to set up a sole USB channel for a USB dac.

  5. For data, I have actually also bought PoF, rather than ethernet.
  6. Ive moved into a old house and now have the opportunity to do the wiring properly. Has anyone got any tips to make this the best quality possible for lack of noise, etc? Thanks

    Has this format basically died off now?
  8. Yes, but with USB-C they are cross compatible. I suppose I should have said USB-C instead
  9. Strikes me as Thunderbolt, by which I really mean the universal USB 3.1 input. I see Skylake motherboards are now outputting these, how long till we see DACS with them in?
  10. Thanks all, this is very useful and to clarify yes I was talking about recording quality, not performance quality, since presumably there is some consistency across the former on a label while the latter is clearly artist dependant. One particular thing I was interested in was dynamic range too, so its good to see BIS are good in that respect. Who else is known to have great DR, who also, is known to have a lot of compression? Talking of BIS, SO MANY of their performances seem exceptional!
  11. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Are BIS the best?
  12. I am struggling to see the difference between these, except that the M12 can have a phono stage and adaptable. But in terms of sound quality, etc, can anyone help? Nad cant tell me
  13. I really wish there was an ADC in this with the phono stage

    My gut feel is that it may also reflect those manufactuers who are more radical and do things like firmware updates. I would have hoped BMCs range would be there too
