  1. +1 for Paul. Love what he did to my 4x Carver TFM-25 amps
  2. I work with a woman that lives on Marry Jane Lane, she once told me how often her street sign gets stolen and she did not understand why none of the others in the neighborhood did. I clued her in on what MJ referred to and she was floored. "Well, I had no idea those kids are just terrible". No lie true story.
  3. My 87 Khorns had a metal horn and AK-2 XOs
  4. But it can't just go to nothing can it? I'm curious about the mechanics of how it works. If it works such that the owner of the fund/etf decides they don't want to play anymore they simply can't say it is worth nothing. Don't they have to buy back all outstanding shares? If that were so and we knew it wouldn't the street just keep buying until that day to inflate the price? I get when GM went out of business if you had shares they were worth nothing, but GM effectively went out of business. New company new shares, old shares worthless. If that were the case and a index fund for the S&P 500 went up quickly like the end of 19 beginning of 20 the fund company, say MFS can't just say sorry we are closing our doors....can they? From what I read it sounded like Credit Suise <sp> was deciding not to play. I didn't feel like the actual exchange they are traded on said we don't think you are worthy like sometimes happens to a shrinking company.
  5. I too like Schiit products, I currently have a Freya + pre. Agree with @CECAA850 that you are most likely to hear what others currently have or want to buy. Like the OP I've also had a few Sonos Connects around the house for casual dinner/party/pool/drinking music. I very much resisted the digital urge in my music room in favor of a turntable and vinyl. Recently the convenience and ADD got the best of me and I started to dip my toe in the waters of something better than the Sonos. I started a similar thread over in two channel. You might want to give it a look lots of good info from others there. https://community.klipsch.com/index.php?/topic/190406-dac-suggestions/ My must have was balanced XLR connections, so that limited a lot of the cheaper options. While I've not pulled the trigger on anything very expensive I have picked up both a Raspberry Pi 4 with HiFi Berry + DAC and something I found out over at the Roon forums I knew nothing about. Orchard Audio Pecan Pi. It is quite the little package. Dual mono Burr Brown DACs, separate linear power supply for the DAC that in turn powers the RPI3, all in a really nice case. I wish I found it before the RPI 4/HiFi Berry because it sounds great and does not break the bank, plays HighRez files including DSC all for about the cost of a Sonos Connect. You could probably buy one while you shop for the ultimate solution and sell it down the road and only be out the cost of a nice dinner and bottle of wine. Fantastic little plug and play Roon endpoint. Here are the specs on it: https://orchardaudio.com/pecanpi#5e660ba9-cda1-4297-a124-7c006f40563a Good luck, let us know what you end up with.
  6. @Jeffrey D. Medwin Help me understand why TVIX is getting delisted. How does it work if you are currently holding shares of it? What happens between now and the time those 9 get delisted. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/credit-suisse-ag-announces-its-intent-to-delist-and-suspend-further-issuances-of-its-velocityshares-etns-301080971.html

    What I Got Today!

    Must be back to school shopping time already.
  8. Remind me again how to do that, please? I seem to remember when I was using an ordered/named crossover you looked at that value say 400Hz for example, and placed your cursor on one of the curves to read the amount of milliseconds it was off. Not having a High Pass and Low Pass at an exact value I don't recall how to do it. Thanks!
  9. By the dashed line jumping left or right abruptly, not having a smooth curve to the right and down, correct? As I am hardly good enough at this to help myself let alone anyone else, I find myself doing just that....round robin iterations. PEQs, XOs, Delay, repeat, repeat, repeat to arrive at the flattest phase and least amount of PEQs. Lately I've had a hard time matching up what the spectrogram and Group Delay are telling me. So if I end up with GDs below 2ms I just let that be and use the Spectrogram exclusively to set the delay. Is that a reasonable approach?
  10. @Chris A I've been doing #2 after #5. How would you set delay correctly before implementing the no name crossover in #5? I must be missing part of the concept.....not the first time. I thought it was basically Flatten Highs Flatten Lows Gain Match Cross where the drivers tell you to be closely matched in phase and use PEQs to do that high/low crossing Use group delay and spectrogram to set the delay (adjust polarity as necessary). This is still the most difficult for me. I spend many hours messing with spectrogram. Any additional pointers on how to attack that in a more systematic way would be greatly apprciated Flatten more with input PEQs Listen and wonder why you didn't make the jump to Active DSP sooner
  11. @Rudy81 NOTE that Chris is saying and NOT shelf filters. I've switched to using only PEQs on mine. ie no shelf filters.
  12. I'm totally going from memory, but as I was reading this from the first post I was thinking 26' was the width between khorn corners. I had no recollection of depth or ceiling height. So your 26 above jives with my memory from buying mine in 2004.
  13. It's not that hard. You just have to learn the steps and apply them in the right order. Time consuming at first.
