  1. You believe Rob Watts when he says the number of taps improves sound quality, and Rob has conducted no unsighted tests whatsoever to prove that assertion. Keith
  2. Voice recognition is very different mechanism, you could use your mum or dad’s voice as the source in an unsighted comparison of course. Keith
  3. I propose I bring a pair 8Cs over and we can measure both from your listening position, that would be a valid comparison, REW is comprehensive, and it’s Mdat files can be shared amongst everyone who has REW downloaded. Keith
  4. I could pop over and measure your system if you like it only takes ten minutes, REW recommends around only 70dB from the listening position. Keith
  5. Contemporary oversampling designs are audibly transparent, as indeed they should be because a dac is a digital to analogue converter. You may not like a transparent component and prefer to add some ‘colour’( distortion) that is your prerogative, I prefer to hear the file reproduced as accurately as possible. Keith
  6. Chronicals ( sic) I am not an electronics engineer, RME has an enviable reputation for solid engineering, reinforced by the measurements of their equipment. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/measurements-of-rme-adi-2-dac-and-headphone-amp.7546/ Keith
  7. Yes I can try although I don’t have access to an anechoic chamber , btw loudspeaker distortion measurements are usually taken with the mic no more than 15cm from the loudspeaker. 95dB RMS at 2 metres would be deafeningly loud. Will you post the MDAT file of the JBLs in your room?
  8. Matthias is pretty straightforward , https://www.forum.rme-audio.de/viewtopic.php?id=27006 Keith
  9. There is no hype Mike, you are choosing the wrong product to rubbish , these are seriously good loudspeakers, just look at the measurements , they pull together some new and existing ideas into one product. Full range, Cardioid response through the midrange, phase coherent with perfect step response, boundary coupling with the ability to individually adjust their output according to position. built in tone and 24 parametric filters, subwoofer output and integration. which means in short that you can place the speakers anywhere you like although they should be placed within 50cm of the front wall ( as should all loudspeakers) Adjust individually I use REW to measure each speaker , because often one speaker is receiving more reinforcement than the other . Dutch&Dutch , Kii and Bang&Olufsen with their Beolab 80 are the three most technically advanced loudspeakers available at the moment, although I am sure others will follow if they can gather the necessary skill set. Keith
  10. Mitch uses two JBL cinema speakers and then adds two 12” ? subs, then he uses Audiolense to adjust the FR , he slightly prefers his set up to the 8Cs. As Martijn states here there are many great speakers available... but when you place them in a room.
  11. The majority of audio equipment is well designed, there is a comprehensive list here. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/master-index-of-audio-hardware-reviews.8184/#post-202519 Keith
  12. From the RME’s user guide , chapter 6. https://www.archiv.rme-audio.de/download/adi2dac_e.pdf ‘6. Power Supply In order to make operating the ADI-2 DAC as flexible as possible, the unit has a universal DC input socket, accepting voltages from 9.5 Volts up to 15 Volts. An internal switching regulator of the latest technology with high efficiency (> 90%) prevents internal hum noise by operating above audible frequencies. Internally the switching regulator is followed by standard linear regu- lators, followed by super low-noise linear regulators. Therefore the ADI-2 DAC achieves its technical specs even with less optimal power supplies. Or in other words: the choice of power supply is not critical.’ Still the unit includes a high-quality switching power supply, 12 V / 2 A, which not only accepts any mains voltage between 100 V and 240 V (usable world-wide), but is also fully regulated against voltage fluctuations and suppresses line noise. Additionally it only weights 150 g in spite of its high power of 24 Watts.’ Keith
  13. Emotion is a response to the music, not conveyed by it. Keith
  14. The only possible way an external power supply could improve sound quality is if that particular component has poorly designed filtration and regulation. There appears to be a vast quantity of poorly designed equipment being used by some of the Wam’s members. Keith
  15. It appears that you can now also select ‘hi-fi’ as well as ‘master’ in Tidal, the death of MQA. Keith
