  1. Ah, TY for the response. If not the higher pressure manifold, you might want to consider a surge tank there and moving the pump further away. Mine always bothered me even though once the music started it retreated into the background. I'd love to see plota, but don't do it on my account.
  2. If I might ask, what manifold and what pressure are you using on this? I purchased a high pressure manifold, but have not installed it in mine.
  3. This is THE reason. The effects of the boundary reinforcement will swamp out the other differences being discussed here.
  4. Welcome to CA! First off, I am sorry to hear about your tweeter even though as a US citizen I am happy we lost ours. It sorta sounds to me as if you are loosing a USB connection. It might help if you describe your components and how they are connected. I have been using Qobuz since their beta testing in the US, and have never encountered a glitch that I could attribute to their service. I have had issues in the past with USB devices that had corrupted drivers or firmware.
  5. And this is an understatement!
  6. Oh, this may be quite doable. Is your listening above the main space or second floor bedrooms? is there any insulation between the floors? I'd think the conduction between floors might be as big of an issue as the door. I hate to agree with Frank, but the fire rated door with tight seals seems prudent. Your door has that large panel which is essentially a large diaphragm. You might even try just the seals and perhaps my truss rod idea to dampen that panel. Cheap and easy!
  7. Easy now, don't give up so quickly Chris. I feel it would help if you specified exactly what you are looking to accomplish or ameliorate. Are you looking to crank it up without waking the household, looking to be able to listen moderately without upsetting them or ?. The former seems impossible, but the latter is likely doable.
  8. Thanks for bringing that up. I was going to suggest some rubber horse stall matting. It's approximately 1/2"/12mm, but the door shown has a large recessed panel. One could swap the (lovely) door for a flat (no panel) fire rated one They have gypsum/plaster or something inside), apply the rubber directly to the door and then seal up to the rubber with silicone edged door stop including the floor. An additional threshold might be required The rubber might be over kill, and one could also consider applying a truss rod diagonally with pinch blocks across the door to break up the vibrat
  9. Perhaps you haven't noticed, this site is now Audiophile Style, and typically vinyl does have a lot of style to it.
  10. I do not see it as thus. Liking equipment doesn't mean you align towards their technology as much as their implementation. Good gear can be had in both, and the better either SS or tube examples sound, the more they sound alike. This is nothing like vinyl vs digital even though I agree all have some die hards.
