RCA input socket lost its mantels
Aragorn posted a question in Questions and AnswersOn my preamp I heard a very low noise as from a non leaded gramopphonewire. But as I looked, I saw the 2 output sockets connecting the pre with the end were both black, no red or white cup around. These cups shield the cable input I guess from interference. When I connected a cable in one of these 2 bare black input sockets and powering the end amp , BRRRRMMMMM!!! I made a photo. On the bottom you see normal sockets and at the extreme right next to CE I think 2 blach sockets. How can these be repaired or replaced ? photo very dark. Bottom of photo rcas in a row. Ultra right, you still can see 2 black sockets for the output to the power amp. Just 2 holes but without the red and white ringed caps around the hole. Did I loose those wile removing the amp or did a cable tore them out ??? he worked frequently before. But of course with the correctly built of assembled sockets. question is if they sell these caps. I saw enough of them for cables, but for the female sockets ??? I recovered one from another piece of hardware, I ended up with a cylindric copper cup with a red ring. But i could not insert it deep enough along the hole , i was stuck ... of course the cable took it out again with no results. zoom the photo in. It gives you a far better sight. You will see the cuts in the black socket rings. lot of talks for a lost copper cup, cylyndric. Thank you. Aragorn.
T+A DAC8 DSD XLR-RCA
sbenyo posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionI am using DAC8 dsd connected to pre-amp using RCA cables. Both my pre-amp and amp only have RCA. I undertstand that the XLR output is considered better sonically. Does anyone have experience using XLR to RCA adapters? Can it really make a differnence or it's just not worth the effort of even testing it?
Hi, I just bought the NAD M12-M22 combo which works really well in my system (Roon on a computer, playing redbook and high-rez music from a NAS, with Monitor Audio Gold 300 speakers). However I still have old & crappy RCA cables connecting the M12 to the M22 which a friend told me is some kind of heresy. I am willing to spend US$ 100-200 to replace them and would appreciate some opinion on whether, in this price range, XLR cables would have a chance to sound better than RCA cables. I know I should try them both and keep the best one but my usual dealer wouldn't let me take both and bring one back... Cheers, Chris

Think of what this means; no more MPCs or the complexity of multiple power supplies and without sacrificing the legendary holographic sound of SR Active Shielding. Just plug and play for the highest levels of performance in the industry with features not found on other cables. Atmosphere Series cables deliver music on a massive scale with the same ultra black backgrounds Synergistic Research Active Shielded Cables are famous for. In fact Atmosphere Series cables are the most holographic and highest resolution interconnects and speaker cables they’ve ever produced coming remarkably close to our Reference Galileo LE interconnects and speaker cables. Thanks to significantly reduced build times and cutting edge Synergistic Research technology, Atmosphere Series Cables deliver state-of-the-art performance at price points other cables cannot match. The Synergistic Research Grounding Block was engineered to improve ground performance on their new Atmosphere Series interconnects and speaker cables, as well as all SR products with external ground plane connections like Tranquility Base isolation platforms, FEQ and Atmosphere wave generators.

Noob looking for 3.5mm to phono cable advice
soziblewuup posted a topic in General ForumHi guys, I currently own a very cheap, thin black 3.5mm to phono cable, which is running between my amp and my Macbook Pro. I think it's probably time to upgrade as there is no reason I should have such a cheap cable in my chain. I'm ideally still looking for a value cable, just one that isn't £1; the max i'd be able to spend is between £15 and £20 but ideal would be £10. Would I notice any discernible difference with a new cable at this price? Also my setup is: Macbook Pro > Audirvana Plus > Fiio E10K > Pioneer A-676 (Old) > Monitor Audio BR2's > BK XXLS400 As you can see it's a fairly basic system. The Fiio is being delivered as I type this and I just didn't want a cable to be holding the whole thing back. Any advice would be welcomed, thanks .
