  1. I will remain skeptical of the middle range gear. Will see.
  2. When I was testing the A500s I went to the Orea series for the right loading. I use 4 under each speaker. (I have cats) https://isoacoustics.com/orea-series/ The extreme toe-in is an old trick... The testing process he was using is a bit primitive. It also looks like the spikes are not really getting into the substrate, the carpet looks too thick?? Hard to tell in the video. I put down 2x2ft MDF panels on the floor. Set the stands on the panels and use Herbies Audio Lab Gliders: https://herbiesaudiolab.com/collections/loudspeaker-rack-decoup
  3. Glad I read this. I have a product from them on eval. GOING back right now!
  4. My Lush^3 arrived today. An immediate improvement across the board, staging, detail, and more vs my Transparent HP USB cable. Breaking it in along with the new server from @lmitche! I have to get settled in before I play with jumpers!
  5. I have had no issues with the speakers. I assume you are using the hub? Maybe a reboot?
  6. Yes just the other day. I was not concentrating on the A500 so I may be a bad reporter. I did not have either of the speakers optimally placed as we were evaluating something else. Read the Kii Three review that Mitch did. The Kii Three on its own presents a very very even and detailed response. They are more detailed. The A500 is less detailed but it images very nicely on its own. I really would not want to compare them in this way as they are in different price classes. I sometimes worry that we over emphasize the differences in things
  7. I cannot say what would be best for you. I have recently purchased a custom assembled and configured Roon server from @lmitche https://nuckleheadaudio.com The server is directly connected to the DACs via a custom interface that he provides that gives me USB. It seems that many folks are really happy with the current Buchardt hub. I have been using them with the analog in and not using the hub at all. I know that Mads Buchardt has openly spoken about building his own. It will be interesting. The Soekris DAC is just very interesting to me. I want to liste
  8. I would not go overboard on DAC for this. I am looking at the Soekris DAC2541. Do not jump in too fast. Also you may want to consider the whole chain. The server/streamer is a lot more important than you think. If all goes well I may be selling my Altair G1 shortly.
  9. I have not found the WiSA hub up to what the speakers can do. I have been running DAC direct to the A500 with AudioQuest Water XLR cables. I have tested two streamer DAC using just the DACs and not the streamers to see what I liked best. I am looking at an R2R DAC to test next,; I will report on that later. I know that Mads Buchardt is working on his own Hub. I have no idea as to date. Bob

  14. Did you post this on the Roon community? It sounds like a networking issue of some sort. Are you on wired or wireless networking?
