    Leaving amp on

    When I forgot to turn my amp off overnight, I did’nt worry about it but my electric bill. It sounds good from just on but even better after about an hour or so.

    DAC Off Part 2: Qutest vs RME ADI-2 DAC

    I can compare both using the Aquarius. But I really do want to compare them plugged in directly from wall socket or maybe using a cheapo extension block.

    DAC Off Part 2: Qutest vs RME ADI-2 DAC

    Mac, Please let us know and share your thoughts once it arrived. Ime I cant really do compare the Ifi 5v and supplied psu plugged in from wall socket (too far). It basically plugged from Isotek Aquarius which could mean there’s double noise “filtration” going on. I found the treble and vocals to be less edgy and or splashy.

With 30 days money back if not satisfied including free return post to Australia. https://curiouscables.com/ Some reviews here: https://audiobacon.net/2017/09/18/curious-cables-usb-review/ https://www.hifi-advice.com/blog/review/cables-reviews/reviews-digital-cable/curious_usb_cable/ http://www.soundperfectionreviews.com/2017/10/review-curious-cables-usb-cable.html https://6moons.com/audioreviews2/curious/1.html https://darko.audio/2015/09/curious-for-the-curious-a-knockout-usb-cable-from-australia/

    Have you heard the Arcam cds50?

    What would you ditch...

    Pp.. I’ve had a Arc. cd192 in the past and iirc I preferred it than the Naim cdx2 I also used to own.

    PMC Twenty 23 or 24 speakers

    Really happy for you enjoying your Krell. Most well build class-A amps are addictive imho.

    Source to DAC Cable Confusion???

    We’ve done it. My wife was the one listening (who knows nothing about hifi and cables) and concluded “the stock cable sounded brighter” and “the Viablue is smoother” which is my thought aswell.
