    The Audiolense T&Cs allow the resale of the license. Let me know if you no longer have a need for your XO license.

  3. Thanks, I get that; you don’t want AL having to cut more than it needs to do. When adjusting the volume control on the subs I guess its better to err on the high side if anything so that AL can cut it down to the target FR. Lets say you have a fully active 2 way system and (like yours) the mid/ tweeter has much higher sensitivity than the woofer. Now I know you use an amp with a lower gain for the mid / tweeter, but what should you do if you are using amps that have the same gain? Is it better to pad down the mid / tweeter with passive components or just let AL make sizeable
  4. Mitch, you mention that you matched the volume level of the subs to your mains by using the volume control on the subs. Doesn’t AL adjust the volume - it surely must do in order to hit the target FR curve ? Or were you just getting the volume level in the right ball park ? This is relevant not just for subs but also if you are using the active XO and have power amps with different gains.
  5. Thank you Mitch. Anybody tried the ASIO4ALL route (pun intended) ?
  6. Thanks for that. I had independently also come to the tentative conclusion that I would have to use the AES 16E and use AES/EBU connections. However Kal’s post about MacOS indicates there may be another solution . . . .
  7. Kal, thank you that is VERY interesting! That sounds like something that may be unique to MacOS - ? I can’t immediately see any reason why this wouldn’t work with other USB DACs as its the routing of the 3 stereo signals that is normally the problem.
  8. Thanks for the suggestion. Not my ideal solution though as I want use the USB inputs of the DACs. Also I note that it performs a sample rate conversion on the input. In my experience the SRC in miniDSP kit degrades the sound (admittedly based on a subjective listening test but the difference was significant.)
  9. I want to use (say) Audiolense for a 3 way active XO, speaker correction and room correction- the full works in other words. I intend to use J River as the convolver engine. My question relates to the 6 channels (3 stereo pairs) of digital output. Let’s say the PC has 3 USB ports, A, B and C. My understanding is that by default the 6 channels would be bundled into one data stream which could be then be exported via one of the USB ports. I would then need something like a HiLo to separate out the 3 stereo pairs and convert them to analog signals. (I understand I could use the analog o

  12. A question: if I want to power my CPU directly and the TDP is 95w, how many amps does the PS need to have? Is the answer >8A, or is it not so straightforward?
  13. This listing is completed.

  15. Is the P8 still for sale or does “completed” mean it is sold?

      hi, yes it is sold. Cheers, Dennis

  16. Your equanimity is disarming😉. I’m a perfectly reasonable, intelligent guy and I am perfectly happy to allow others their point of view 99.9% of the time without feeling the need to challenge them. Just occasionally though . . . But hey, maybe I’ve misinterpreted the comment.
  17. If that’s a reference to molecular structure then fair enough, but if it’s implying that the copper conducts better in one direction than the other, then I make no apologies for being provocative.
  18. “directional copper” ?? Go on then, give me a laugh and tell me what that is.
  19. This sounds like something most “audiophiles” would want, however, am I correct in understanding that you need a computer based audio player to implement it? How would you use it if you just use a discrete streaming device like an Aries mini? Also, same question if you have a turntable?
  20. Re the SVC, when you boot up the Lightning app, is the volume at the same level you left it at when you last closed it down?
  21. I'm currently using a pair of the above miniDSP units as active crossovers in a 4 channel (i.e. 4 driver) system. These use SHARC ADSP 21369 / 333 MHz modules. They simply apply the relevant FIR settings and each one outputs 2 digital channels to a 2 channel DAC. ie one DAC per speaker. What I'm not sure about is the quality of these units and whether they are a weak link in the digital chain. Would using Acourate on a suitable PC instead give me better SQ? ANyone have enough knowledge of the SHARC units to comment?
  22. Regarding this specific point and ignoring the clock sync issue, is this a problem if you simply split a SPDIF signal from a digital source and send the resulting 2 signals to your 2 DACs ? (ASsuming the split signals are strong enough for the DACs to lock onto.)
