    I liked the bit where he says he couldn’t recommend it at any price. But maybe as their spiritual leader takes ever more extreme positions, then maybe some of his audience will see it for what it appears to be.

    I think the music that has been encoded, Is. replayed to a very high level. Let the trolls say otherwise; but specifically by album and track, because Dave is great, without any regret.

    CHORD ELECTRONICS DAVE

    One thing I’d say, non political, is that, some of the harshest albums I want to enjoy, but in reality haven’t been able to comprehend, like Thom Yorkes , anima, a thoroughly thru and thru futuristic album, but with Dave, the timbre of the organic instruments come through. I am on the voyage of...

    I got a good deal at nintronics - traded in tt2, maybe worth seeing what they can do.

    Watts Up...?

    @feddar check you’ve got everything cabled correctly. As I was swapping speaker wire to my sub I noticed almost all the volume disappeared, I had to turn it to max just to get a drop out, turned out to be a speaker cable wasn’t connected properly.

    Watts Up...?

    Strange, when I feed it xlr to speaker level Inputs, I can’t put the volume up more than 20% on the sub.

    Watts Up...?

    None lol, im still tryin my to work it all out. Except phase should be either all one way or the other. I asked Louis, he said, put the bass dial a good bit up (cut off), not necessarily at the lower end, and to keep the volume low.

    Watts Up...?

    It’s fine, I ran it that way for a year, I never ran volume over 0db, mostly around 10-15db high.

    Are there any suggestions for “cheap” CD player components, and cheap meaning, as cheap as possible. Would a £50 Walkman style CD player on batteries be good? Cambridge audio cxc seems good.

    I’m also going to do some blind testing with Dave and an assistant. The target is 8 out of ten times to choose the upscaled version.

    Hugo M Scaler by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    I watched his YouTube video and what I got out of it was… As a device it adds more noise to the signal that’s sent in, even though that noise is not audible. But that any upscaler needs to add noise by definition. Then he said, 2x upscaling wasn’t doing much for him, which many people on here...

    I noticed that the rubber feet in the Dave are just half circles glued into circular cut outs in the floor of the base. I was a bit surprised, I somehow imagined there was more to them.

    Tidal on iPhone has a cool feature where it makes music video playlists based on what you like.

    I wonder why some people can have that kind of audition but others put the improvement into the category - that it could be just placebo. I don’t think the thread has ever really considered that.

    Stupid question, would the same result be achieved by just increasing the volume?
