I bought this many years ago but have since moved on to other amps. It has all the upgrades available at the time of purchase, including the internal DAC and Desktop Power Supply. All features are working EXCEPT the USB port, which is broken. I cannot test the coax, but the optical port works fine. It will cost at least $100 for Headroom to fix the USB port (non-warranty work and they estimate about an hour of work), so please don't plug in a computer and be surprised. I...
I've owned the Klipsch ProMedia 2.1 and 5.1. They were fine computer speakers, but I also had a B&W/Arcam system in the next room for actual music listening. I think you would be able to get much better performance from a bookshelf system, even if you don't go expensive. I had a friend with a Denon/Mission setup that was nice-sounding without getting too expensive. I used M-Audio's 2.1 monitors last generation, which I found too expensive for their performance. They...
Agreed. A problem I didn't know about before was telephone radiation. I have unshielded studio monitors for computer speakers, and I can tell when I get a phone call by the sound of crackling doom coming from the speakers about 10 seconds before it rings. So, don't leave a cordless or cellular phone near your speakers.

There is a local dealer that sells Lehmann... have the new models made it to local dealers? (I will check...

(erased) What I said was true on Mac. I missed that you're on PC. Sorry.

Noel Well, my power went out before I was able to play much (just came back up today, actually), and my wisdom teeth all came out. I'm on vikadin, and sleep, and my teeth hurt...
Quote: Originally Posted by DatHak512 Does anyone know if the Desktop Amp comes with a USB cable? So far, i understand that it comes with the power adapter (15v wall adapter) and the amp. Anything else? No USB cable. And it takes the same digital-camera styled cable as the micro stack. I'm a college student too, and I went for the Desktop, but I Maxed it. It's still new, but it sounds nice. I would imagine, however, that the difference...
