    Without a doubt but my OCD wouldn't allow me to own them.
  2. Your laptop and iphone are both bluetooth. Just pair them.
  3. Well if your referring streamer to dac you are correct. But as far as laptop or computer to dac using the smartphone as a remote doesn't affect the sound to my ears. I am just using bluetooth to my laptop which would still remain the wired transport via audioquest usb cable to dac. But again I have not given a nice streamer a chance yet. As a betting man I would think throwing all my money at a killer dac would give a better result but again I cannot be sure of that statement without trial.
  4. I like using my smartphone as my remote for my laptop. Doesn't affect the sound at all to my ears.
  5. Scuffle? I would call that a slam dunk!
  6. Well I understand the reasoning behind one job. But again that is what the Sony PS5 and XBOX 1 gamers say. "Well ours are better cause it only has one job". Wrong! These newer laptops absolutely destroy gaming systems in video quality and speed(fps). Heck my laptop destroys most desktops in gaming performance. Only my high end desktop can out do it. I just feel with Thunderbolt 4 technology with USB built in these new machines it feels like a new laptop would be like having 10 raspberry pi's built in. I could be wrong but I would think I would have to climb along way up the ladder to beat these new laptops. Heck a high end laptop these days could literally run the country. Appreciate your opinion and I am still willing to learn.
  7. How is using a 5000 dollar laptop with audioquest usb cable into a dac only marginal compared to a 100 dollar raspberry pi. Serious not trying to be a smart ***.
  8. Laptop → Dac → Preamp → Amps → Speakers ↓ Mini DSP → Powered Subs

  10. That is what happens when you don't take pride in your things. These are rough. Passives no longer available. More of a parts item but what parts are any good?
  11. I like the MiniDSP 2x4 HD just to cut certain frequencies in my subwoofers. I think it makes a great eq tool for that purpose. I like both tapped horn and 6th order parallel bandpass subwoofers done right because they have very little distortion and slam in spades.
  12. My Chorus II are not designed to be bi-amped from the factory. Those Cornwall's have the ability to put a nice sounding 5 watt tuber on the top and a nice 500 watt solid stater on that big ole woofer. I have found it is my woofers in my Chorus that loves the watts. So I have found in my years of searching a pair of amps that sound great on my horns and able to take complete control of my woofers. This is a great forum and it really doesn't need polluted with personal attacks on amplifier preference. I am sure I would enjoy listening to every forum members systems. We all put a lot of time and effort into what we feel sounds best in our environments and preferences in music. I prefer classic, hard, progressive rock and heavy metal. Quite a few of those recordings have much to be desired and I probably listen a bit too loud sometimes.🙂 Give me 5 great watts for my horns, 500 watts for my woofers and 1000 watts for my subs.👍
