  1. Ι didn’t know that thanx for the tip!!!! I will do it tomorrow! But I try Hegel dac thought usb....well one more shoot. I have listen a lot of dacs. Mytek, benchmark dac3,naim,luxman, Bryston etc. the only dac that was like vinyl was the luxman! But unfortunately it doesn’t have Ethernet. Maybe a streamer auralic with luxman will be the best choice?! I am confused
  2. That’s right Dirac is good below 500hz...I will say 400hz for my taste. Why to do connect shd to Hegel dac?The signal will be passed from to dac i thing. A Friend of mine told me that it is a good dac but they build it in a way to not perform good. Have the same chip as hd30...but is not as hd30 overall. but I will try in
  3. thanx a lot for your post. I have tried the Hegel's dac without good results. the 851n and the shd have better DAC iMO. I don't use Dirac function since it cuts the headrooms for some reason and the right speaker has more volume. Maybe theses days I will have Dirac from 20hz to 100hz-400hz.i will see for that. I like shd because I have 2 dual mono subs with good results. I can set up the delay and the gain manual. so is like dac preamp.I know it's difficult having a good dac with those functions. any suggest?!
  4. Goodafternoon to all. with covid19 I hope you will have more music pleasure at least. well I have a good time of listening music. So I chasing my tail. A little story first. So my first experience of streaming has with my Hegel h190. as i understand it wasn't the best that you can get from a dac/streamer. As I read somebody explain that the dac/streamer of h190 is because of 2020....all in one situation. is like a cars...every car of 2020 have a radio in standard. I make a comparison with ifi micro. it was a little upgrade. After that I take the 851n. I
  5. Hello guys I have some problems. Hopping somebody knows about them. 1) i have hijack and Roon. I am using hijack because dirac supports only vst while roon not. So i make a session in hijack as roon-dirac-dac. It works. However i can't find a way to add the endpoint raspberry (ropieee) to the session. 2) I have some clicks and pops. I don't know if the hijack or my macbook make them. any thoughts?! 3) As trying my endpoint with a tplink repeater 650-ethercable-switcher cisco-ethernet cable-raspberry(ropieee)-usb cable 0.5m-ifi iusb 3.0-usb cable-0,3m u
  6. Is there a reason that you are using male to female barrels adapter?! as i see some companies are using spades that fits arround to the dc plug.
  7. Hello guys. i was wondering if audirvana has vst plug in, if i can put as end point on it, my raspberry pi and if supports tidal. Thanx
  8. A very thanx for your answer. why do you don't build it like the old one?! The old dirac works like virtual card and is so easy to use with everything. Not to buy other player, use it with everything chrome,movie player etc. Hijack wants also to pay it. I think is a thumbs down for me.Is not pratical.
  9. in other worlds says that work as dap. in the old dirac says On a Mac: From the Applications folder -> Dirac -> Dirac Audio Processor Once running, clicking the “D” icon in the dock opens the DAP Controller window. Tip: If you have set the DAP not to start automatically upon system startup, you may want to drag the DAP application icon from the Applications folder into the dock for easy startup in the future. but in new version ?
  10. i just want to know if it works with tidal. i was trying before some months asking you some problems that i have without understanding my problems so i am very unhappy with that. Such a non friendly app.
  11. I can't make it work. I read that tidal works perfect with dirac. Well i make the measurement i choose my dac from my laptop,dirac and dirac live....and nothing happend. I use the latest version dirac 9.11. any thoughts?!
  12. Hello guys. i have a streamer/dac that i want....and a macbook. Also i have a rpi 3 b+. I have try audirvana,foobar,jriver,moode,volumio,roon. i just wondering if i can upgrade to something better from that. With rpi using a power supply ifi ipower and i think i am loosing something.body maybe...and i am not pretty source if a better power supply will be a day and night to other solution. with macbook and roon using the rpi as end point i have the best way for music. Foobar and jriver aren't for my taste. Audirvana is just ok. The 851n
  13. as dac/streamer i have the 851n and not the hegel's dac. My bad. I am playing usually with roon as end point the rpi 3 using usb to 851n dac. it will be a help telling me if other way works better. the rpi3 powered with ifi ipower...and also i have the iusb ifi nano.
  14. Maybe is right maybe i mean mid bass. What do you mean saying "these days we know that a stupid configurable USB cable already can do that the most easily, hence theproven truth in that"? so better to try other speaker than taking a sub?! About software i am very happy with roon?!you guys?!
  15. 1) harbeth c7es 2)tidal or mine flac songs. is a difficult finding a stand speaker nearfield that have bass. I never find any.
  16. any suggestions for sub guys?! 400e to 500e max. a friend suggest me a Temblor T10.
  17. thanx for the detailed answer. I agree with you. I think the speakers can't afford the eq and they don't listen at it. Some B&w i had before was better than harbeth. So the first problem i think is the speakers....and maybe after the amp. I am thinking to try a sub....but i don't know if that will make the things better. Some suggestions for sub to 400e and any opinion for buying a sub?! thanx again
  18. i try to eq from foobar. i try to +3db the 55hz and get the 77 +2db and 110hz +1db. Also i try +6db with smooth it down db up to 220Hz. This was the worst. I try to leave the 55Hz to zero and - the other and was better....but not such a thing. I try both -3db and 6db. If i understand well harbeth doesn't have bass at all....or the something else i am missing.
  19. I have rew and umik and some measurments if this helps. I am living in a small village and pros don't come here.that's why i am asking if i can make it work. I find only one eq in foobar. Please if you could tell which other you mean it could be a help. i will send you the songs when i will go home.thanx a lot!
  20. So speaking for subs....as i see is very difficult to put a sub into a system. This must do a professional. Am i right?! if not some advices for which sub and some tips placement will be a good hand. Some guys as i see they place them behind the speaker....but me i will placement at the same height of midrange or just above of them. i have foobar.....do you think can try eq in foobar?! So puting 3db in 50hz and After dicrease smoothly to 200hz?! yeap the low end is correctly but it isn't enough...i want better push. I don't know if i understand corrctly wher
  21. I just saying my thought in order to tell me your opinion. For sure you know much more from me. So i can try the resistor somehow.low cost as you say. I think none of bookshelf have a good bass that i am looking for?! If you know some could you please tell me?! The problem with subs as told is imaging,placing is the right position to take the same delay like your speakers,height and crossovering not to play the same freq.
  22. Well which is the best option for me now. adding subwoofer will be not a good idea?! delay time( not the same distance and high as the other speakers), imaging(one woofer for 2channel?), connection. Also is a bad thing playing the same freq mid bass and the sub. i know subs have crossover but the point is boost some freq....and if i do that some freq will be played from the sub and mid bass as a result poor sound quality. also a resistance ,between amp and speaker, i don't think will be a good idea.
  23. Hey guys. I just want to finish my system. Getting some panels and a better possition i still notice a lack of bass. I check everything to my system everything is ok. I know my speaker don't have a the boom bass but i don't think that is the thing. 1) Searching some info for my amp....hegel h190....i noticed the damping factor to 4000. Very expensive ab amps don't have so much damping factor...only hydrid and class d does(what's why i don't like the bass?). Somewhere i find a guy saying that the too much damping factor kills the bass.is it right?! Also some of my friend
  24. well guys.... Everything its ok. Does the cables make my sound empty?! With no life and bass responce?!
  25. well guys...i think i find it. I have a dedicated line for the hifi with 4mm simple cable. When i plug it to the wall i have a lot of bass...and from my line a have airly highs.why is that?! i member before years i read some guys have the amp in the wall and the other to dedicated line. any thoughts?
