    I updated using your link on the previous page of this thread, a month ago. It was working perfectly since then until today. I will try to uninstall/reinstall.

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    I catch myself trying to re-organize my life in order to afford the Venus II.

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    I had the Luxman DA-06 for a few years in Japan but sold it when I left (incredibly dumb decision). As someone who was able to demo and own many many DACs, the DA-06 sounded distinctive. It's a DS dac using Burr-Bown. I had the opportunity to blnd-test it using my own amp, speakers, and source...

    HIFIMAN Arya (& 2021 Stealth Magnet version) - Impressions Thread

    Thank you, thank you. I debuted my knob in this post on the Singxer SA-1 thread; if you follow the next couple of pages, other members posted some links to great knob options, including one that looks identical to my knob. BTW there are a lot of Arya owners in the SA-1 thread, so lots of...

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    Mine is 38mm. I think 40mm will fit, maybe 42. I think it depends on the shape and color of the knob you want. Stock is only 30mm diameter but for me the biggest problem was how shallow it is. I basically couldn't reach for the volume control without touching the faceplate, which bugs me. And...

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    The silver knob I have on there is 38mm diameter (originally from a Luxman amp). The SA-1 stock knob is 30mm, and there is an indented ring in the faceplate so that the 30mm knob will fit inside. With a larger knob, it is possible to install it against the faceplate where it will scrape - you...

    Tracking just announced mine has cleared customs and should be in my hands tomorrow. Dying to join the SA-1 + Arya search-for-analogwarmth team. I am also interested in doing the mod with the jumper.

    Flux Lab Acoustics FA-10, FA-10 Pro, FA-12, FCN-10 & FA-12s Amplifiers - Summit-Fi for the People?: Reviews, Impressions & Discussion

    Oh man, this is why sharing pics is so interesting. That is the LAST color I would have chosen, but now seeing it in context I think it looks so freakin cool. I definitely have too many grey and black boxes....

    Oooooh that was good. Lots of interesting things happening in and outside my head during that track. Switching over to 1080p youtube seemed to improve sound quality (I'm not sure if it's still 128k at 1080p or if they bumped it up to 256). My playlist for testing gear starts with this track...

    That is the typical situation with AFT, when it is functional. The bigger problem it is apparently not functional with 64bit operating systems: Catalina and the more recent Big Sur. It will not open, zero functionality. I have no idea if Google is going to update it, and no longer care because...

    Listening to my new Arya . . I no longer have the HE-6 to directly compare, but I have no memory of it sounding nearly this good. And my Arya is only getting a watt from my M11Pro DAP. Listening to One by Ahmad Jamal, Beware the Drunken Master by Kaya Project, and Slonecznik by Mikromusic

    Singxer SA-1 / Balanced Amplifier Fully Discrete Class A - beyond THX 888 ?!

    Here are some measurements from a Chinese site. Looking at this, the SE and Bal circuits are not equal, and it would not make sense for a balanced amplifier to have equal measurements from both outputs. Remember, popular recent amps like the 789, Monolith THX, SMSL 200, etc, are not actually...

    Here. I sent them a message to suggest making them in alcantara.

    I'm not sure that is true. The schematics for the New Hiby R6 clearly show that the LO signal does not pass through the final amplification. (FiiO's M11Pro schematic does not show the line out path.) Also, FiiO's parameters for the M11Pro show 3 different sets of output specifications: one for...
