    Nice info but was this with your ARMATURE Asterion (Holo Spring) DAC or T+A MP 3000 HV?
  2. +1 Thanks for another exemplary effort: great review.
  3. Read the article. Quote from Frans de Rond: "After recording we add a bit of reverb, little EQ and a tiny bit of compression to smooth things out, but we keep everything to a minimum." Must say I was disappointed to read that as I thought there was no processing whatsoever. SL did issue one or two tracks for free in all resolutions available so comparison could be made. Would be interesting if they did the same for the OneMic recordings with/without processing.
  4. Enjoying the music is what matters most so I don't buy everything in the SL catalogue but I do try to support them by buying good recordings that are less than a perfect match to my taste. Why post comments on an audiophile site and complain when excellent material is published ;p Support them and hopefully they'll be able to record more popular big draw artists! Check out Witmer Trio "Free" - another excellent recording although not OneMic.
  5. It's a very nice recording >> although not my favourite type of jazz
  6. Does this mean the TAD's are staying? Or is the speaker change on hold and re-evaluate once the room treatments are in place? At least you know you're moving forward now :-)
  7. Could you try to summarise the problem in precise terms? Here's my understanding - please correct. The problem: The clock drift analysis shows a variation in a smooth sinusoid like pattern amplitude ~0.02ppm but expected is no variable drift as seen in software generated examples - how many samples does this equate to? Test scenario: loopback recording only, similar behaviour across various computers as source and various DAC/ADC The algorithm: … the algorithm is to measure offsets of samples at multiple locations in the waveforms. Then, a linear regression is used to fit a line to the offsets, the slope of the line is the drift, the intercept is the offset. From the charts 20 samples per file are used regardless of run time of 1-3mins in examples. You mentioned the comparison is in the frequency domain? Please explain how this is done and what values are compared. I'd have thought you would just pattern match the raw data samples (which means both files have to be at the same rate)?
  8. What about using a different computer to play the music?
  9. This review on TAS suggests speaker matching is essential (not so good with low sensitivity loads) therefore home demo required. Tested here with several speakers by Tone Audio, and more here by Stereophile who found a flaw with one recording.
  10. I've now bought a miniDSP UMIK-1 and using REW measured my Tannoy Kensington SE's and Wharfedale SW150 HT subwoofer. It's apparent I have a room node at 40Hz which main speakers and sub are exciting. The sub is mainly for HT and I was hoping would supplement the Tannoy's but they don't go low enough and just reinforce the 40Hz node. So my next consideration is a better sub. I've noted @mitchco is using Rythmik Audio F12 (about $1100 inc. shipping) but couldn't find anything for @dallasjustice or @3ll3d00d who also seem to have invested in hifi audio sub set ups. Another option is maybe 2 x BK's XXLS400-FF Subwoofer 400W RMS 12" but this is non-servo controlled. Any comments/recommendations from folks that have tried/demoed subs in this budget range i.e. 1 or 2 subs totalling <£1000?
  11. That will be interesting to read. I think I prefer the Witmer Trio "Free" versus Carmen Gomes "Don't You Cry" and Feen Brothers "Play Brubeck" musically, but the OneMic recordings have the best SQ. It seems to me these 3 are the new ultimate reference standard recordings. Despite Witmer Trio "Free" not being recorded 'live' in a OneMic session, each instrument sounds 'live'. Well done Sound Liaison you've raised the bar!
  12. Another excellent recording. Maybe Sound Liaison haven't recorded enough material for an album yet. Paul van der Feen seems to be a very highly regarded sax player in NL.
  13. Wild guess but sounds like your network. I'd put some music on your PC and try the above again to see if Audirvana works OK.
  14. Here is San Geronimo's web site where they have 2 more one microphone recording videos. And pay dirt lots of one microphone recordings made by John Cuniberti + free remix of Joe Satriani Shockwave Supernova Remix EP
