  2. Here are couple of other options More $$$ but worth it if you have to go that way MiniDSP SHD if you want something to include a DAC, provides an tablet or smart phone interface via Volumio, also includes REW and Dirac $1,299, XLR & RCA out https://www.minidsp.com/products/streaming-hd-series/shd MiniDSP Studio utilizes an external DAC or a AVR Dac $949 https://www.minidsp.com/products/streaming-hd-series/shd-studio I use Audirvana Studio (Mac or Pc) based music server seen remotely via Tablet or smart phone same concept as Squeezbox, it can see network audio device and send the signal to it via network, if you Sony is connected ( hardwired is best ) to the network it should work https://audirvana.com 30 day free trail can handle DSD easily, interface is good for seeing albums and music , connects with commercial music streamers - worth a look

  4. I was just listening to Hocus Pocus by Focus on Radio Paradise, and thinking it would be amusing to ask someone unfamiliar with the song to sing along with the vocals. Then I tried it myself, and it was pretty amusing. Try it yourself. Focus - Hocus Pocus:

  7. My 2 cents, I think you would be better served with ASIO straight output from laptop into a decent DAC after you rip CDs properly.

  8. Was just going to say that. What I used many years ago. Worked very well. Use the laptop and a DAC with USB perhaps? If you want to get fancy and use wireless..that's for the rest to decide. I tried Bluetooth with my topping DX7S PRO DAC and noticed a very obvious decline in sound quality. So.. I stuck with wired.

  9. Are you wanting to stream wirelessly from your wife's laptop to a device connected to your Sony receiver? Does your receiver accept S/PDIF or do you want to connect via RCA? Do you want to control your playback from a tablet/phone? Do you also want the ability to stream music over the internet...Spotify, Tidal, Pandora, etc? My favorite device is the Squeezebox Touch (no longer made but still very popular). You would need to run a server program on your wife's laptop however. I have built Squeezebox devices using ESP32 as well. DIY, but a blast to play with! Mike

  11. Thanks for your responses dudes. Carl, I've been doing well. I hope the same for you and your family. Real busy these days with work, which is not a complaint. Michael and Jerry, my wife found a source for one, our cell phone provider. That never occurred to me! They have decent prices on new 11's. I'll reach out if this doesn't or can't happen. Jerry, I think our provider uses ATT so that should be compatible if we cross that bridge. I'm not asking either of you to hold them for me. If you find a way to sell, go for it. I'll mark this post as 'no longer looking'.

  12. Tom, Thanks for all your hospitality yesterday and entrusting your Jubilees to me! Tom is right ... my first listen of Jubilees and I think that once I pulled my jaw off the floor I said something to the effect of "Holy cow, what a huge soundstage". I may have included a few supporting expletive's in that sentence as well. Tom's work is awesome; these are definitely a one of a kind in appearance. Tom's passion and attention to detail really shines through. I am really looking forward to getting them set up in their new home. Tom, it may take a few days or so as my day laborer (for the rest of you out there, my son) quit on me at about midnight last night once we unloaded them into the garage and he headed home, saying "see you at Thanksgiving" knowing very well that I'd manhandle them into the house long before then. Yes, these babies are huge (heavy); best workout I've had in years! Once I get them set up, I'll post some pictures in another section of the forum and give more of my impressions. Thanks again Tom and please thank your girlfriend for me (and my wife) for the sourdough bread! It's absolutely delicious! Steve

  13. @CoryGillmore The MA5300 does not measure 22 ", but 18" 3/4, so about 20 "with the cables. In addition, if you let the chrome parts of the front face protrude, you regain 29/32": which will roughly be 19 " deep with the cables, it should go through your furniture, right? See page 5 there is a side drawing of the appliance, the distance between feet is 13" center distance, approximately 14 "from edge to edge of the outside of the feet. See page 5 >>>>> MA5300 Integrated Amplifier Owner's Manual It would be a shame to miss such a beautiful amp that you like so much for a dimension error, so forget the 22 "and hurray for the 18" 3/4 😆

  16. Thanks, I made a quick one out of bendable 1/8" plywood, and it worked...I am making a jig that when the 2 square sides are in it... I will be able to trace out the other 2 sides to cut the angle (To be sure.) I hope to be that far by the end of the month. I just got some 2'x4' prekerfed wood off of Amazon, and it appears to be perfect for making the horns. I can try out a 1/4" horn and keep adding layers until I have the thickness I want. I also am making a new jig that was cut on a CNC so my curves will be much closer to perfect. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
