    Of it out performs your DAVE I’m calling “dibs” on your silver DAVE at a Wam-tastic price!
  3. For overcurrent protection on circuits that do not require RCD protection. Or to provide overcurrent protection for circuits protected by an up-front RCD.
  4. Quite possibly the theme for my next Bake-Off! Who’s up for it? I’ll get a selection of MCB’s and RCBO’s from various manufacturers with different current ratings and Types and we can spend all day comparing them whilst taking comprehensive notes. I’m envious of the fun your going to have tomorrow!

    I think that would be a great topic, you’d start to fit in well, as it seems the insane have taken over the asylum.

    A bit of fun ?

    4 out of 6 here. I got Coldplay and Jaz Z wrong. I can’t say I’ve ever really listened to Coldplay before but the production on that song has to be one of the worst I’ve ever heard.

    I believe your correct, the manual appears to state 768kHz is possible from 48kHz.

    Upscales to 705.6kHz from 44.1kHz and 768kHz from 96kHz. Yes it requires the dual BNC cables to do this.

    Unless I’m mistaken I believe HQ Player software offers a filter with a 1 million tap length. I honestly think that this is a prime example of FUD. A designer mentions it and everyone jumps on the bandwagon, personally until objective measurements are produced, money would be better spent on improved speakers/room treatment/DSP/DRC. Until then I’m gonna have to file this away with grounding boxes and cable lifters.
