    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    Flashing firmware back to 1.81 seems to have allowed me to turn it on again. We'll see.

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    My Realiser A16 is getting stuck at the start up screen a lot, I have to keep turning it on and off repeatedly via the remote. It seems to be getting worse and worse. I've heard of others having this issue. Do I have the defective hardware or is this a software issue?

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    I've gotten USB to work with Windows 10. (Control Panel --> Sound --> Click on Realiser --> Hit "Configure" in lower left, then pick 7.1 in audio channels). Problem is that I would really like to know what format it's decoding, but overall you can see which virtual speaker is running on the...

    A headphone tribute goodbye to Tyll from Innerfidelity

    My first audiophile headphone was from Tyll's old company Headroom when he was running it. Glad to have hung out with Tyll many times over the years since.

    Smyth Research Realiser A16 - Issues, Questions, Feature Requests, Tips and Tricks

    Noted. Will discuss there. I bought (and still have) one of the very first Realiser A8. Realiser A16 being release in late 2019 is in dire need of a UI overhaul, or at the very least a Computer/Phone App for more direct control. I think it's an entirely relevant and important discussion...

    Smyth Research Realiser A16

    I pledged to the Realiser A16 campaign immediately when I saw it. I finally received my Kickstarter A16 (2U Version) this week. The UI and remote are horrific even by 1990's standards. Studying, and I mean thoroughly reading the PDF manual is a requirement. Fortunately Lorr Kramer at Smyth...

    Anyone successful in converting old A8 PRIR files to A16? I can't get mine to show up on my A16.

    Smyth Research Realiser A16 - Issues, Questions, Feature Requests, Tips and Tricks

    After 2.5 year delay, I finally have my Realiser A16. First off, the UI is the absolute worst I have encountered in decades. It's the unfortunate problem with a product developed with purely engineering and zero design or marketing. The guys at Smyth Research are absolutely brilliant, but...

    Going fully Wireless IEMs. Too soon? Or are we there yet?

    Update to a very old post, but I am now using Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless. It pretty much checks all the boxes for me and has completely replaced all my other wireless earphones. The most killer feature for me is it's Transparent Hearing feature. It makes them perfect for office use...

    Open Back Fullsize Headphones For Baroque Era

    I would recommend checking out the HifiMan HE5se as well if you are considering the 560. The 560 is more refined IMO, but the 5se is more fun, dynamic, and musical, especially if you pair it with a more powerful amp. Another bonus is that the 5se got a price reduction on Adorama recently. So...
