  1. In my experience with the T-1D’s it depends on the distance between the speakers and where they are situated in the room and the distance of the speakers to your LP. As esldude said, try it both ways.
  2. I see the deluxe version of Sgt. Pepper’s in MQA in Tidal via Audirvana.
  3. Possibly he has some concern about noise as GaN is somewhat noisier than GaAs.
  4. @damien78 I hope also that you've found a fix for the Qobuz search issues with the remote app that a few of us have reported.
  5. I’ve encountered a strange condition with 3.5.7 when using the iOS app to search in Qobuz. After making a selection from the search results the screen goes dark with “loading” logo and never completes. Meanwhile Audirvana on the Mac (Mojave) freezes and continues playing until the memory is exhausted. The app must be restarted. I do not encounter this when searching in Tidal with the IOS app nor in Qobuz with the Mac app. I did not encounter this with 3.5.5.
  6. As well as promises of new enhanced capability firmware and a firmware installation tool.
  7. Not if you have a license for 3.x.
  8. With sorrow and fond memories for Notre-Dame de Paris: https://open.qobuz.com/album/0822189023263
  9. The PSI5 is a line-interactive UPS which also provides auto voltage regulation capability without involving the battery/inverter. This unit only brings the fan online when running off the battery in contrast to dual conversion UPS's which run the fan continuously. Hence it is suitable for my office/music room. I have indeed listened to the Kiis w/wo AC mains (via UPS) and without the power filtering/regulation (direct to mains). Given the somewhat mature state of these ears, I cannot note any negatives of having the UPS inline. Although Thomas of Kii informed me that the Kiis did not require any special treatment of the AC supply, I resorted to using the UPS because of sporadic power outages and transients. One such episode crashed the Kii master during its reboot. Better safe than....
  10. The AHB2 is a wonderful partner for vintage Martin Logan Requests which are not the easiest speakers to drive. They are dead quiet and run cool even at high volumes.
  11. I’m using a Vertiv PSI5-1500 for each Kii. This provides true sine wave power as well as filtered output for anomalous power events. I do not hear any deterioration in the sound and no humming at high volume with no input.
  12. I’ve noticed that there is a lag in updating playback info in the remote, for example the progress bar and file audio parameters. This is in beta 17 and 18.
  13. Thanks, Damien! My question was preliminary prior to installation in a folder outside the Applications directory. All went well; both Tidal and Qobuz were loaded.
  14. Does one need to re-enter one's credentials for streaming services and audio settings etc. after installation of the 3.5 beta?
