  1. Those are options for sure and may be required is some instances + rooms but totally unnecessary in others with proper setup. My pre has multiple outs and thus I use my subs settings for bass mgmt - the integration is ridiculously good in my current setup. I was just curious how some are doing multi subs without pre when going dac direct. I personally wouldn't be interested in getting a multi chnl dac "just because". Anyway this is getting way OT and there are plenty of pre discussion threads. Back to Holo discussions everyone!
  2. To pre or not to pre will always be situational and personal preference. That being said, if one looking at a DAC like the May or any other high quality unit for that matter, how would you approach running dual / multi subs? Running a signal direct from the amp(s) to sub can be an option but what else?
  3. Really great episode! The reference to credits was so spot on IMHO. Most people don't care and its just consumption (mostly free streaming) but the sheer amount of work required to create a song, let alone an entire album, should be appreciated and recognized, at least to some degree. Again IMHO. Even the metadata - I'll never understand when buying a digital album, all that is included in the metadata is "artist name, song title and genre". Pisses me off to no end. Rant off 😉. Cant wait for part 2, great job Chris, thank you.
  4. Yes I guess I'm a bit slow on the up-take 😀 Thanks for all the info in your response - it makes sense and is what I was thinking with regards to SM short distance = over saturating. I was going to try SM several times but it just hasn't been on the higher priority list of audio things. I've been using MM for quite a few yrs now and has been rock solid.
  5. Can you shed some light on this? Is it specific to SM or MM and using it in short distances? I've been running 100ft of fiber for quite awhile without issue.
  6. Hmm, I think going to try this method for testing cables😉

  8. Have you tried SDM pack set to DoP in the config shown?
  9. I noticed I posted this in the ver 3 forum, my apologies. Trying out an eval of latest audirvana. Installed it on my Win10 laptop. All I want to do is add my library which resides on my NAS (for this example). For the life of me I cannot find away to do this and have searched forums with no results as well as I see no help file to specifically talk about this? Maybe its my search criteria or whatever but anyway. My NAS has many shares and I access the shares for other applications via IP: \\192.168.20.10\Multimedia\Music The multimedia folder is the

  11. Ahh. Can you work some magic and get me a good deal on upgrading mine 😁
  12. Would be interested in your thoughts if you try euphony. I think a good solution in your setup is to try euphony/stylusEP so you can still use roon and your endpoints. Endpoints vs direct to DAC (no endpoints) are highly contestable debates around here. Which one works best, only you can decide. The euphony model/setup is a bit confusing (IMHO) since you can use it standalone (stylus) or with roon+HQP (stylusEP), at least I think that's how it works if i recall correctly. Like you, it would be very difficult to give up roon for file mgmt, playback, integration etc.. especially
  13. Why does their site (for baltic) say "No volume control even as an option"
  14. I think many good points here and will be situation specific. I would sort of summarize my understanding with this. If you are attaching the server, whether it be an audio PC, roon core (rock same/similar thing) direct to DAC, much work is needed to make sure all bases are covered with regard to noise +power with whatever interface you are attaching to DAC et al. The well built DIY fanless servers or the Innuos types going direct to DAC use internal storage in many cases I have seen. If you are using server in a 2 pc setup or a server to endpoint, I think using a NAS or direct
  15. Remember the vid is just one example and how it would translate to your room and dimensions isn't cut n dry. It would a lot of broadband to kill a room and I think many times people think adding a few "panels" will deaden the room - not so. Not at all. You can still have a "live" sounding space, but until one hears a proper room, I think its easy to be "used to what one knows". It takes a massive amount just in trapping to even start getting a hold of the sub freq and rarely is that done in most domestic rooms. The 6"-8" traps (straddled or better yet floor to ceiling ) can do
