Re: Nothing In Particular

Just gone back over to the khozmo passive from Eds b1. A more couth and relaxing listen, more natural, but missing the kick up the arse, the immediacy and poke that the b1 gives. And the extra bass heft it gives which I was expecting I was getting abit fatigued with the b1, but I'm sure that that ca...

Re: Digital volume control.

@johnG, I'm listening at the moment to Eds Nelson pass b1 buffer, the original 2008 iteration I believe, scratch built on Vero board by Ed, not a pcb or fancy component in sight, and its fantastic. I'm using it with my Nelson pass f5 power amp, and I'm very very impressed. I've been using passives f...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Really need to get myself some new cables. They are all just any old shite I had laying around, or bits of spare cable with phono plugs grafted on when I ran out of cables. Look at em funny, move em slightly, and there are bursts of hum and noise. Probably all the plugs are shagged out and the solde...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Listening at the moment to Eds pass B1 buffer pre, it's a very interesting little thing. Seems to give the f5 a kick up the arse. It doesn't seem to do subtle quite like the khozmo passive, but then again, there isn't a few hundred quids worth of bits in it...... And Ed said its only been used a cou...
