  Please read my post (noted below) on setting up gmusicbrowser for proper playback. It should resolve your issue provided you enter the correct information under "Advanced Options > Alsa Device". Just setting gmusicbrowser to ALSA is not enough without also entering correct info into the "Alsa device" field. To find your ALSA device info, in a terminal window, use the command "aplay -l" to determine your sound card's settings. If you have more than one sound card device,...
 eimis, What you describe is certainly not my experience with Linux. I hear no fuzziness or downsampling effects in any of my Linux media players. I don't use Clementine. While I prefer Ubuntu Linux, I have tried several Ubuntu derivatives (like Mate, Mint, Kubuntu), as well as Antergos (an Arch based distro), Sabayon (Gentoo based), Red Hat Fedora and a few others, sonically, they all sound the same to me. Ultimately, there are simply too many variables that factor in to...
Because this is a special Chesky Binaural+ recording, I felt this was as good a place as any to post this for those who haven't seen it yet. The website "www.wallofsound.ca" is promoting, with Chesky, a free full album download of "The New Appalachians - From The Mountain Top". There are compressed zip files in both 16/44 and 24/192 of the complete album in aiff format. PC users will need to convert to flac (dbpoweramp works). It will only be available for a short time...
"far more intelligent" probably not.  But, I'm glad my post helped you.
ToTje, I don't believe I am qualified to provide a good answer to your question. I can recommend you read this paper on balanced and unbalanced circuits: http://www.rane.com/note110.html It goes through the the three ways a balanced to unbalanced circuit can be made. If that doesn't help, a call to Steve will get you the best answer. From what I recollect Steve telling me over the phone, the best result will be from a DAC that has a true balanced circuit. From what you...
I just posted a poll on the Decware site: http://www.decware.com/cgi-bin/yabb22/YaBB.pl?num=1423588237/0   You might be interested in voting. Perhaps we will get our wish.
I've asked Steve, more than once, to make a high quality speaker switch box to solve the very problem you (and I) have with the Taboo III and a few of the other Decware amps. He didn't seem that interested although he said it would be easy to build. The ones I've found online are junk. I have been considering writing a post about it on the Decware forums to see if there is any support for a new ZSSB (Zen Speaker Switch Box).
 If your listening includes analog sources (LPs, tape or FM radio), I feel the CSP3 is an invaluable addition because of the added weight and authority it adds to the music through the Taboo III. There is a synergistic interaction between the two pieces. Also, the CSP3 has an adjust-ability factor that most other pre-amps don't provide. Read more here: http://www.decware.com/newsite/CSP3.html  If you are so inclined, you can read more about my CSP2+/CSP3 impressions here:...
Steven doesn't appear to be actively advertising the Zbit. I'm not sure why. I stumbled upon it from his post about why many of his smaller amps don't have balanced inputs. If you read my posts on the Zbit, you will note I mentioned that I felt the sound of the Zbit directly into the Taboo III resulted in a slightly more detailed sound. So, yes, IMO, the Zbit is going to provide a slight improvement over using a CSP3 at about half the cost of the CSP3. When I spoke to...
I don't think the problem is that it would be "hard to add", just expensive since you would have pay for shipping both ways. From the Netherlands, I imagine that would be a hefty sum in addition to the mod. BTW, just to give you my experiences with the Taboo III: 1. When listening via headphones (in my case LCD-2 or Beyer DT990) I have to turn the attenuator down quite a bit, so the sound coming out of my connected Omega 3E speakers drops to a point where they are almost...
