    Second owner of this top of Wells line and incredible sounding amp with a detailed yet tube - like warmth, high dynamics and exceptional bass. The Innamoratta and the Innamorata Signature were the first audio designs to use Bybee Labs's revolutionary Music Rails and quantum AC filtering yielding ultra – black backgrounds, the Signature with more Bybee tech = even blacker backgrounds and better micro - detail resolution. This unit is in overall very good condition however please note – there is a slight ding near the rear left speaker terminals which does not affect functionality (see picture) hence the low price than usual price. Will ship to CONUS. Check out the reviews online.

  3. IME and assuming you have an sufficiently revealing system everything matters. After having owned an ultra rendu, and SOTM SMS 200 Neo and now an Aqua LinQ streamer the end result as one might expect is "flavored" by the streamer and less by the music server. However, that's not to say the music server doesn't matter and ethernet output to your switch is paramount. For example, I recently purchased an Innuos Statement and stand alone (providing local music or streaming and out via USB to my DAC) it sounded quite good. However when used as a Music server -> my LinQ ->my Aqua
  4. I purchased an EtherRegen + BG7TBL 10MHz OCXO clock powered by an HDPlex HD100 LPSU placed on 3 IsoAcoustics Orea and the difference compared to a Netgear switch was easily noticeable. I'd put it into 4 categories: Much improved PRAT, less gritty / glare from higher frequencies, a blacker background and more focused spatial cues including increased depth. Well worth the modest investment IMO. My only questions are - should I ground the EtherRegen to the wall outlet powering the Niagara 3000 (which powers the HDPlex LPSU) since the Niagara doesn't have a ground terminal? Should the
  5. You've just uncovered what few realize - the inherent bias in just about every professional and user review unless you know and account for the room's sonic signature which most don't. And probably the most important reason for subwoofers - to match the human ears' audible response curve.
  6. There is no linearity since we perceive different frequencies at different levels and at different levels the perceived loudness shifts. Check out the Equal Loudness curve. Nothing is easy :-) I use Sean Olive's listening curve as a good baseline to dial in low frequencies.
  7. Nice work. One of the reasons why server motherboards likely yield better sonics than what I'd call client motherboards is due to better quality components (resistors, capacitors and regulators in particular). In my day job I work with ODMs who design computers and in order to meet the higher server specs for constant uptime to manage critical data these components are much better quality than the 1-2 year longevity requirement for your run of the mill Acer, ASUS, Gigabyte etc. client motherboards. Then there are trace length and layout requirements that, for client MBs the ODMs will cut corne
  8. It depends on the magnitude and phase shifts of the impedance and also the delta of sensitivity. There is no generic multiplier.
  9. Correct. My point was WRT yamamoto2002's comment which omitted impedance. And impedance is rarely flat across the frequency spectrum and some driver / xover combinations with low impedance in a loudspeaker draw more current; P = V * I = more power required.
  10. It's not that simple. A loudspeaker's efficiency is a combined driver output value. However, all drivers and their related crossovers don't have the same impedance. As such, a lower impedance drive/crossover will require higher current for the same output level assuming the speaker is frequency flat.

    Aqua linQ

    Thanks for the info. I asked about buying Aqua's EtherCon cable and the Aqua dealer told me it wasn't yet available. Can I ask - which Ghent audio ethernet cable you bought?

    Aqua linQ

    Ethercon is a connector type used primarily in Pro audio. Ethernet cables and Ethercon - connector cables are wired the same. After experimenting with a few few very short CAT 8 cables and an Audioquest Cinnamon I liked the AQ best so far. However differences are fairly minimal IME. I may go to an AQ Vodka since I seem to like the AQ flavor, if you will.

    IME with my LinQ I2S is better than BNC but not significantly, it's marginal and likely not much depending on the resolution capabilities of the system.
