  1. The cable debate reminds me of the discussions I'm currently having with my 7 year old.  I can tell her whole-heartedly that it is better to believe in Santa Clause because I recall the added wonderment this belief added to Christmas. But as an adult, I realize that the perpetuation of this myth is really a ploy to sell more toys.  If you wish to cling to the wonderment, more power to you.  If you want rational people to take you seriously, you should really have better support than- "your system just isn't resolving enough".

    is the DSP a klipsch Designed  product  -

    Isn't it a veneered rebranded/locked down xilica?  Kinda a shame they wouldn't allow users to run room correction on it.  For the $$$ the new Jubes run, I can't imagine anyone not using room correction.  Why force someone to buy more gear and run another d/a conversion? 

     

    I could be totally full of shit here however...

  3. Purchased a month ago thinking I could use it as a bridge for external hard drives via usb out to my current dac. I would have to remove the DAC portion in order to do this and it really defeats the purpose of this product.  It is an incredible DAC that measures as good or better than the best out there-

    My preamp only has one analog input however, and that's on turntable duty so I'm sticking with a laptop to feed my existing dac.  It's cool looking, but I don't really have a use for it as such.  Screwed around too long to return it.  These are selling out everywhere and the price has risen accordingly if you can find one.  The Audio Nirvana power supply is also sold out at the moment, but I think it was $60 by itself-https://chicagodist.com/products/allo-nirvana-smps .   It has a grounding lug and a grounding lift so there is nothing in the way of you achieving the fantastically low noise floor this DAC is capable of.  Would make integrating into a vintage system much, much more foolproof.   Asking $175 shipped PP FF or +3% to CONUS OBO-  which is less than the DAC retails for alone now. The unit is new and as described here - https://tinyurl.com/4xnevypy    Comes with original packaging (it's just a cardboard box for each, don't get too excited. Documentation is all online.)-  and is in like new condition.  Unit also comes with a remote.  I can send pics if you like.

    I agree! : )

    I'll get around to doing the ABX test again before too long - for the full 25 trails. I started working out with a personal trainer about a month ago that also trains soldiers at the local Naval base and the pain he puts me through reminds me of the ABX test.

     

    From the QSC ABX manual. Sorry for the poor quality, but it's the best I'm aware of.

     

     

    You need to live stream that so we can all partake in your discomfort, lol.  The testing, not the workouts...

  5. Very interesting thread I'd like to follow by way of commenting.  I believe I first spoke with @Langston a few months ago when you kindly supplied your listening impressions of the ABH2 as I was pondering a purchase.  Further research to appease the chief accountant/wife led me to the ASR review of the Benchmark and then on to the Hypex amps.  An enterprising engineering student about an hour up US RT 2 from me had started Buckeye Amps out of his home focusing designs around the Hypex modules.  The design was basically crowd-sourced on the forum and the sincerity (and low cost) of the endeavor was too much to resist and I purchased my first solid state amp in quite some time for the princely total of $500 delivered.  The CFO was pleased.  2 months later (the kid has gotten quite busy with orders) the NC252MP based bread box arrived at my doorstep. So far the experience has been extraordinarly positive.  It mates exceptionally well with my Minidsp SHD and I left the damn thing on all weekend and it barely got warm.  Listening impressions are equally positive.  It's preternaturally quiet at idle and smoothly transparent at volume on my Volti/BMS/Fostex t500a MK3 khorns.  Anyway, thank you all for being smart and enthusiastic (and mostly) objective.

    What about, I see it frequently, the seller says, "it has the normal scuff and dings you see with a speaker this old" and someone asks if they could post photos of what they are talking about?

     

    Isn't it imperative to request pics of damage that's mentioned but not documented?  I get the same feeling from those posts as the ones that don't post prices.
