    Post A Photograph Of Your Turntable

    Maybe, PAP allows me to plan out down the road though, if I have a 2nd system I will ask to buy the 15s and baffles only.

    Post A Photograph Of Your Turntable

    PITA is a good thing, was using the Mint protractor the other day and I know I need to do more back breaking set up to finalize alignment, it will indeed be worth it. The Trio15 with horns are working very well, but I may swap in the Heil drivers soon to try.

    I'm a bit strapped for time, but here goes an initial impression list: Build quality is astounding Volume Control if you haven't used one like this can take getting used to the resistor ladder attenuator with its clicks; so far fidelity is great at low levels. I am coming from a Tortuga LDR...

    iFi iDSD Micro DSD512 / PCM768 DAC and Headphone Amp. Impressions, Reviews and Comments.

    My iDSD has stopped working reporting some kind of driver issue; just after a slew of Windows 10 updates.   Anyone else?

    iFi iDSD Micro DSD512 / PCM768 DAC and Headphone Amp. Impressions, Reviews and Comments.

    Using JRMC on Windows I can send DSD512 via ASIO Native DSD, I doubt this works on the DX80. I have a DX80 connected via S/PDIF to my iFi when I travel and noticed the passthrough fails.   Most of the files I have on the DX80 are DSD64 so I don't think there is even a DoP output on the DX80...

    Reply to review by 'doctorcilantro' on item 'FiiO X5 2nd gen Premium Hi-Res DAP'

    "A DAP's most basic functionality is playing music."   Very hard to do when the UX design is crap. E.g. the iBasso DX80 does not support M3U or an Play Next function.   The lack of usability on many of these devices blows my mind.

    Are M3U playlists now supported? How is this feature in 2016 not supported on a DAP?

    If you want DSD256 on Windows, I had to install the newest driver which is not listed on the Web Page, but this Auralic Support Page:   http://support.auralic.com/hc/en-us/articles/222588028-AURALiC-USB-Driver-Version-3-34-0-   Using JRMC with pretty good stability in EXACT clock mode for...

    Anyone here own the new v2 Vega that does DSD256 out of the box. I'm guessing you are using DoP, and if you can test in J. River I am having problems with my v1 Vega doing DSD256:   http://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,106659.0.html   thanks! DR. C

    I've been doing USB DAC for so long......I can't figure how I would test the DSD512 over S/PDIF.   Do I need a compatible digital i/o on my PC?   I figured I could change bitstreaming to S/PDIF in JRMC, and turn off DoP. But I only have a Realtek Digital output on the motherboard and it's...
