Re: 300B Headphone Amp

Some interesting reading Ray thanks. Yes I've been thinking about another DAC project, something to better my TP Buffalo 2, but don't really know where to start. I hadn't appreciated the 1021 could also be modded with separate PSs, similar to your OEM version. A pi/isolator/reclocker/DAC stack would...

Re: 300B Headphone Amp

Dunno, this is a voyage of discovery for me :-).

I presume you mean using the USB of the pi?

Re: 300B Headphone Amp

Thanks again Ray, very interesting.

Does the isolator just sit between the pi and DAC, connected via the GPIO? Looks like a separate 5V supply can be used for it too, to make 4.

Re: 300B Headphone Amp

Thanks Ray, very helpful. I can see the benefit of the simplicity of the 1021, and the tweaker's solution of the 1121. Which 5V supplies did you use? I'm still in the Squeezebox environment so a pi connected via I2S running piCorePlayer would be my way to go. Do the filters need to be set and tweake...

Re: 300B Headphone Amp

Which bits and bobs do you need to get the Soekris up and running Ray? I think you need more than just the module itself???

I only listen to PCM/ripped CD if that makes a difference.

You'll need a shipping crate twice the size for those Tannoys :-)

Re: yet another boring one trick pony turntable build

It is. But lessons like last night are good reminders to keep things in perspective! Interestingly I've just tried Logical Song and Dreamer on the Squeezebox from a ripped greatest hit cd. Logical Song is way better than the LP version I have. Way way better. Dreamer is on a par with Logical Song, m...

Re: yet another boring one trick pony turntable build

VPI something or other. Had it years but only just recently used it. Having tried wet cleaning in the past with disappointing results I like the vacuum as at least there isn't any crackle left from air drying. The dynamic range on the Supertramp album was quite an ear opener. We tried a few other al...

Riiiiiight, okay. I hadn't appreciated it was isobarik-like. This makes a lot more sense now.

Just to be clear.....the woofers are in phase accoustically, but out of phase electronically.
Can't quite get my head round this - what would be the practical difference? How is this done? Must be having end of the week brain fade.

Re: Ali Bastanis OB testing & results

I’ve seen on Vic’s Lencoheaven thread that there is no movement of the drivers’ baskets until he feeds them a 5hz tone. I can certainly vouch for there being no movement whilst I was listening- and some of that was at high SPL’s, certainly a fair bit higher than I would normally listen. With the dr...

Re: Ali Bastanis OB testing & results

It's a good question Ray. My gut feel was/is they would decouple the drivers from their supports - rigid supports will couple the drivers to whatever support arrangement more. Whether this is significant is another matter, but Vic's and Clive's experience perhaps suggests the lack of rigid coupling ...
