  1. File Structures

    My way I keep audio is in two top folders under the main folder 'music'. The two folders are named Lossless and Lossy respectively. I try and keep it as simple as that and the software I use for naming I cant praise enough, it is https://www.xdlab.ru/en/download.htm The software is also available as portable. I have used this for a few years and paid the guy £20. I sometimes create other folders under music for temp storage for example I record say 48hrs of Radio Paradise in 320k and have found a way to have the artist and track automatically saved as the file name of each track. Also I have them numbered 01 to whatever so as to keep them in broadcast order. The radio recording I can put on a usb stick and listen in the car. Approx 3.5gb per 24hr. I have my music stored on a NAS and use Rune Audio on my network controlled through a windows 10 phone.
  2. Robson Acoustics of Penrith

    Hi All, I purchased a pair of the Opulus a few years ago and had the internal silver wired and upgraded caps done, because if memory serves me right, Robert was moving the speaker over to this specification. They got 5 globes in HIFi World. I did demo these the other year at Scalford. What sold it for me was the ribbon tweeter foremost, which made cymbals sound like cymbals. Great company to deal with.
  3. So which upgrade made the biggest difference?

    Personally I have always found that adding a separate power to a CD Player, Pre Amp and DAC's, basically for any delicate components. One more item did, donkeys years ago and it was a free set of head-shell leads from HIFI Choice. I put them on a Trio KD2055 turntable. In context I cant hear much difference between speaker cable.....Heresy lol

  5. Advice on how to test

    Hi Guys I have developed a problem within my system, which shows as the left channel not working. This is only when using the turntable. The turntable is the VPI classic with Denon DL304 into a Musical Fidelity square silver fronted X-LPS v3. I have eliminated a cable problem. Do I need to test the turntable and phono stage with a multimeter? If so how? Any help would be appreciated. Kind Regards Dave

  9. Arcam Muso Speakers 4ohm

    Hi Guys, Just bought a pair for my computer which connect to the amp / DAC, which is a SMSL SAD-25. No sound at all so does this mean the amp isn't up to the job? Tested the speakers on the Naim Amp and they are fine. Any one suggest a cheap AMP / DAC , that will drive them. Must have the DAC part Kind Regards Dave
