About Me

  1. Triode Lab 2A3M-II Monoblocks NOK 25,000, new price NOK 70,000 Better purchases than this is not easy to find. Best amplifier I've had but sold to fund new Audio PC for my system. About two years old, like new. Two sets of tubes included. The blocks are 2 x 9 watts and are based on the 2A3 tube. The monoblocks are completely without noise even on the most sensitive speakers In a class of its own according to tests: https://wallofsound.ca/audioreviews/the-gemini-equation-triode-labs-2a3m-ii-monoblocks/ Website: http://www.triodelab.com/2a3-set-mono-b-locks/
  2. I have a mid 2012 Macbook Pro, Mackie CR3's, Behringer HPX2000 and I'm just kinda happy. Mackies are connected to 3.5mm headphone output of Macbook Pro to the 1/4 TRS inputs of the Mackies. The Mackies have a 3.5mm aux output I can run the headphones on but when I plug them in the speakers shut off. I read that my laptop has 3.5mm/optical mini toslink output. How can I 100% find that out? I installed a programs called Mactracker and it said I had it but I followed some other instructions to check and it didn't show I do. In any event, without upgrading the Mackies I'd like to improve my
  3. SOLD Job 225 power amplifier, designed and manufactured by Goldmund in Goldmund's Geneva Switzerland factory. Lots and lots of rave reviews if you google it. Mint condition, with original factory packing and owner's manual. You are essentially buying a Goldmund amp without the expensive bling at a very low price. You can't buy these anymore. If you also need a preamp, check out my Luminous Audio Technology Axiom II passive, being sold in a separate ad. They are a perfect match. Msrp: $1,500 Sale Price: $995 Buyer pays shipping
  4. Hello, I would like to know if anybody knows how to freeze the display contents in the display window of the Linn Classik. Be it the tuner or cd info, it appears and disappears after a few seconds, leaving - - , 2 stripes as display content. Pushing on the display button of the remote gives no result. Also, to attain a decent volume, I have to go over the half, 50-60 whereas many other amps I got, even less in wpc but I agree that alone does not make the volume. I tend to see that all digital sensored volume setting , be it with leds as I turn the knob
  5. Hi folks, I ordered my first high end headphones. The V Moda Crossfade m100. I rip my CDs as mp3s at 320kbps. Is this good enough quality to utilize the full potential of m100 or do you advise me to keep it FLAC? When it comes to the player. I own a Galaxy Note 2. Do you think it's powerful enough to run the m100 at full throttle or do you think I'll need a specialized player? Some are even using mobile amplifiers... Will I need an amplifiers even when I get, let's say, a recent Sony Walkman? Thanx in advance guys, as you see I'm completely lost Any suggestions are welcome,
  6. As with most audiophiles the world over, I love music. I am an engineer, pianist and classical listener predominantly, but open to all genres and music types and listen avidly to any music type either recommended or discovered. It all started for me, as these things have a wont to, with some money burning a hole in my pocket. A pocket that was not much used to having burning money in it... Countless daily hours over countless months of reading reviews, studying design methodologies and factors influencing sound reproduction, engineering principles and costs, listening sessions to train myself
  7. Hi there I have a Neuhaus T-2 tube amp powering two Mordaunt-Short bookshelf speakers (Mezzo 2) using an Airport express to feed it my iTunes and Spotify music via AirPlay. I now want to replace the amplifier by a tube amp with integrated AirPlay connectivity over Wi-Fi. Any suggestion for a model/brand with decent tube amp part and good D/A converter? Price range 500 to 1500 US$. Would be a plus if the model would visually show of the tubes. :-) Thanks for any pointers!
  8. My trip through headphones and speakers was very diverse, but I finally reached the top floors and found out I am completely lost. As the title suggests, I am about to buy one of the AKGs (most likely 712) and it would seem they lie in a territory that cannot be run from basic on-board sound card. Currently there is an MSI B150 GAMING M3 motherboard with an on-board Realtek ALC1150 sitting in my case. According to many articles and forums, on-board sound cards are better and better. ALC1150 seems to be satisfying for normal use. However, it would seem it is not powerful enough to run the 7

  10. Hello, I want to ask following question. I am NO expert. Let this be clear, so don't shoot please. I have a whole collection of Audio. And in that, about 30 amplifiers. But I am going to pick 3 as to compare them in decibel production versus the Ampliers specs. 1. The Cyrus 7. Rated at 40 Watt per channel at 8 ohm. 2. A Chinese Classic Yyshung 08 power amp with a preamp. 125 Watt in 8 ohm, 240 in 4 ohm. 3. And my worry Amp. The Thule IA150B. 125 Watt in 8 ohm, 250 in 4 ohm. last one got overheated, replaced him. Let him cool off. Morning after
  11. I had my first foray into hi-fi territory when I recently bought a Denon M39 with Dali Zensor 1 speakers. It sounds great - relative to what I was used to. But I know that before too long I'm going to outgrow it (its happening already …. ) and I'll want to swap the micro-system for some separates. Now I mostly play music out of my laptop. This is being piped via an airport express into the Denon with iTunes/Audirvana being the player and using mostly ALAC, FLAC, MP3 and AAC files. I don't really need a CD player and I can't see myself really wanting to use that format again on a regular basis.
  12. Hey there, We just launched a kickstarter campaign for our new headphone amp. We would very much appreciate it if you could check us out [here]. If you have any questions, feel free to ask here or on the kickstarter and I’ll try to answer to the best of my ability. Thanks for your time! (My apologies if this is not an appropriate post…)
  13. Are there any data on how often amps hit clipping?
  14. So honestly when it comes to hi-fi headphones I'm actually pretty inexperienced and don't really know what I'm doing, anyways I got a pair of HD650s for Christmas and have been using a little Fiio portable amp for them but I know it's not nearly good enough and want to upgrade for better sound quality. The only problem is I have no idea what to get. I know I don't want to spend over $500, but I don't know if I should get a tube amp and DAC, just a tube amp, or an amp/DAC combo thing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  15. Hi guys, Thought you might wanna see this. I've just come across an interesting Kickstarter project for a really small personal amplifier called the UAMP on Kickstarter. Apparently works with most devices (phones/tablets/DAPs/laptops) and is said to make them sound a lot better > https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1746450443/uamp-soul-shaking-audio-for-your-ears/posts
  16. Rats! I got everything all set up and found out my Adcom GFA-535 does not work, so I need an AMP (not a receiver). My preference is for clean, accurate and tight sound. I mostly use the speakers to play music. I am wondering what makes more sense 1. Get another Adcom GFA-535 or similar on eBay 2. Purchase a Emotiva UPA-200 or Mini-X A-100 3. ATI AT602 for $250 4. Something else What do your suggest and why? Also, I am not quite sure if I need a pre-amp. Adcom said I did, but Emotiva said I did not. If you know, please let me know. Here is the equipment I am usi
  17. I found the video per the link below pretty much by accident when searching for something rather different. I have to be honest, I found this to be utterly gobsmacking, I had always suspected that amps needed a little more power than simple maths based on required dB(A) and speaker efficiency would suggest, but nothing like this. The video of the amp's display is a little blurry, but's lets just say that I has mentally parked the decimal point in the display a factor of 10 backwards until it dawned on me what was really going on.I would say it is well worth 10 minutes of your time to watch.h
  18. Hi all, I built the In-Khan-Neatos about two years ago for an in-wall replacement for some mains that failed, they have worked out great. At the time I was using a HK PA4000 100Wx2 setting amp, a HK3375 as a pre and streaming music using a laptop headphone jack to RCA outs. When I replaced the speakers I moved to Schiit passive Pre and also moved to a Schiit Bifrost DAC. The speakers as I said are great and the gear helped improve the sound as well. Well I am thinking I can do better than 15 year old HK PA4000 and I have always been interested in tubes. My main question is how muc
  19. Hi people, recently i found my dad's old DYNACO A-25's and i wanted to try them. I'm not an expert but for what i know i need aproximately a 40w amplifier. I found this 2; are they fine for normal listening, which is better? The speakers are 40w 8 oem Their limit is 60w https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B06W2KFBG4/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2A1HIM2X1EPQ0 https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B00E9U375C/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ABV9J41D2VYA9 If the amplifier's are not good can you suggest m

  21. Hi! - Today while fiddling around with a new DC supply to my DAC with my Amp in standby.. I noticed two small plumes of smoke from the amplifier and the lovely (not) smell of toasting components.. I was surprised to say the least! (as it was in standby - relays not feeding power I assumed). Still not sure what fiddling with a 12vdc supply to my DAC would mean via the balanced XLR to the amp.. So I took the case off for a look and a sniff.. I am not sure whether the caps are potted/bonded and this has discoloured or have my caps started leaking some time ago? Votes plea
  22. I used to have a few different configurations on my primary PC, but then the PCi-E input on the MOBO apparently died, so I switched over to an external USB Creative Audio SBX soundcard and am now a bit confused on how best to power my existing equipment. All of my previous stuff (Klipsch 2.1, Cambridge Soundworks 2.1, etc.) were all powered devices. I was then able to add to this with my old soundcard (soundblaster X-Fi Xtreme gamer) my Battlechair's audio components for a true 4.2 system. I'm sure most of you don't remember the Battle Chair, but it's got it's own Eastern amplifier to po
  23. I have been patiently awaiting the arrival of the Peachtree Audio Decco65 to use on my office desktop, which has been on pre order for some time now. For $999 it really is at the top of what I want to spend for a desktop amp. While waiting for it to come out I have been shopping around thinking there may be another unit at or below the cost of the Decco65 that could work for my needs. The Emotiva mini-x a-100 caught my eye, but that would require a separate DAC. Which is fine, but Emotiva does not make a size compatible DAC (I have aesthetic issues).... A newcomer to the mix is the NuForce
  24. I have numerous Ipods and at one time had over 1,000 albums (still have a bookshelf full), and still possess over 2k CD's (used to be on record company mailing lists in my previous occupation) Have a fairly nice pc with a soundblaster xtreme card, and have some pretty good pc speakers. However, I recently got a pair of vintage Kef 103/104 4ohm speakers restored, and was in the market for a new amp until I figured out that like most of the modern world I primarily listen to music on Ipod or at my PC. And I don 't EVER listen to the radio anymore unless its streaming over the Interne
  25. Hello everyone I'm fairly new to all of this so I could use some help. I want to hook up some bookshelf speakers to my computer. So far I know that I would need an amplifier. I don't have the greatest budget for this but i'm thinking of buying. This, http://www.amazon.com/Onkyo-TX8020-TX-8020-Stereo-Receiver/dp/B00EE18O7W and use these speakers, http://www.amazon.com/Klipsch-R-15M-Bookshelf-Monitor-Speakers/dp/B00LMF41IY/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1463069169&sr=1-1&keywords=klipsh+r-15m So i'm thinking of connecting the amplifier with a optical digit
