  1. Rather like your worthless trolling. But in case you didn’t know, the Chord Dave has an inbuilt SMPS so this is no simple task, will void any warranty and possibly it’s resale value. IIRC measurements of the DAC didn’t show any problems from its power supply.
  2. Well said. Not all balanced mains units are created equal, if you are set on purchasing one, make sure it has the required protection on the secondary side. But if I am going to be honest, I’m not sure balanced mains has a place in the domestic environment.
  3. I have a fair amount of extreme metal recorded in >16/44. Most audiophiles would probably still describe it as “god-awful” though!
  4. Pre 1977, they would have been the correct colours but there is a possibility that the order of the conductors is incorrect.
  5. I didn’t see a date on the article, but RG was always a big Nordost fan.
  6. Who knows? I was merely adding information that may be relevant.
  7. An article by Roy Gregory, who went on to work for Nordost.
  8. Melco (eventually) released their own app, it’s a little clunky in places although seems to be getting better after a couple of updates, but I totally understand your frustrations.
  9. ...pairs of speakers @TheFlash will buy before keeping a pair longer than a week? Two down, three to go.
  10. The Stone Roses - Second Coming
  11. A “true” enthusiast would use a second inverted cable basket to form a faraday cage to stop that pesky RFI.
  12. Paysage d’Hiver - Das Tor ...up next... Olhava - Olhava
  13. Was... Stvannyr - Secrets of the Runes Asagraum - Dawn of Infinite Fire
