Thanks!  I def have all that I need and more.  I made a decision last year to get rid of everything but the absolute minimum.  I still have a AGD amp in a 2nd system and a MAD Ear+ HD in storage because I simply can't bare to sell it.  My plan was to keep the ZDSE from here on out but the GS-X mk2 came up and I had to try it.  I re-arranged my room back in Nov and never got around to hooking the ZDSE back up until 4 days ago.  I don't think keeping 2 TOTL amps is in my future so who knows what's going to happen.

 

I bought the XPA-2 power amp a couple of months ago but just found out that the new XPA-1L's (class-a, fully balanced) are out so now I want those instead...  So as much as I think I'm at the end of my audio buying line, things keep popping up...

 

But another plug for the Oppo 105.  A 7.1 channel DAC with 24/192 USB capability and HDMI/TOSLINK inputs and outputs and network streaming capability controllable from your iphone. SACD, HDCD, DVD audio, Bluray audio and seperate, dedicated 2-channel DAC - best deal on the planet.

DACmini CX > Emotiva a-100 Mini-X > LCD-2 Rev.1

 

With 8Wpc into 50-Ohms, the dynamics, bass extension and speed are amazing.  I'm hearing things in the bass that I can't hear with with the DACmini's amp section.  But even after 100+ hours of break-in, the Emotiva seems to have slightly recessed mids and is a little more analytical than I prefer.  Keep in mind that my LCD-2 aren't as resolving as T1, for example, but I'm still wishing this chain were a bit smoother.

 

 

Only $189 currently - pretty amazing!

 

 

My $45 contraption - I already had two of the four pieces, so it was expedient.  The cable is Oxygen-free copper with platinum-plated RCA connectors.

UPDATE:  In response to a PM, here are the four pieces that total about $45.   Please note that this can only be used with speaker amps that have a common, shared ground between the left and right channels!   You can test this by using a multimeter to confirm that there is continuity between the black terminals when the amp is turned off.

 

Note that this amp's speaker terminals have a shared ground!

Feel free to make substitutions - it would be better to have fewer connection points, of course.   Someone like www.btg-audio.com could put together an affordable cable that would be a far better solution.

You can just buy a 1/4 headphone plug, cut off the RCA connectors and connect the two - that was you can skip a whole adapter and about a 1/2 solder  and adapter connections.

Nice, paradoxper. Is that a "Colorware" presentation?

Thanks Silent. It's not. It's a custom job from ReferenceSounds.

Just got integrated my DIY 2x15 PA/bass cab into my rooms system with a 400w/channel power amp. Plus the 200w/channel sony receiver into my 15" tower speaker pair. Almost loud enough biggrin.gif. Have to finish painting the bass cab though.
