    Bluesound Node 2i

    Hi. Thanks. It does help. I love the Audrivana fullness.... My problem is that I really want to use Amazon and the node is the only option for bit perfect... Does the node have any filter options?

    Bluesound Node 2i

    Has anyone compared playing Tidal or Qobuz on the Node vs on a PC through Audrivana? And if so- does the music sound exactly the same to your ears? I am not looking for "bit perfect" scientific explanations;- just subjectively to your ears is the music played through these two options...

    Audio-GD DI-20

    I don't get the problem. Put a Uptone Audio etherregen between the Ethernet connection and the Gutard or a phoenixnet. These reclock, galvanically isolate, etc.. Why introduce HDMI or SPDIF?. There are all kinds of fancy ethernet isolating mechanisms on the market.... Kingwa needs to add...

    Audio-GD DI-20

    Interesting that most "official" word clock dacs have two inputs for 44 and 48? This makes me question if single input dacs like audio-gd are synchronizing with external clocks. I recently bought a new dac called HIBIKI SDS and the external clock feature has two inputs. I think the Denifrips...

    Audio-GD DI-20

    A question for my friends: When the DI is hooked up to the R-7HE, and there is an external 10mhz clock connected to the DI and to the R-7HE, are the clocks in sync like a word clock?

    MEZE AUDIO ELITE - The New Isodynamic Hybrid Array Headphone - official thread

    I had a chance to compare the Elite to the Atrium in my system. The Elite is definitely the more neutral reference sound. It seems the most evenly balanced of all the TOTL cans to my ears. Very smooth. Very good soundstage, and detail. Way better than Susvara in my opinion if you want the...

    Gustard U18

    For those who have compared the U10 to the DI-20HE, are you saying he DI-20HE is superior sonically or in terms of features? Please elaborate.

    KG CFA3 headphone amp

    I use my ES-R10 for my CFA-3. But I have a ultra-low gain option installed on my CFA-3. I do think my oor sounds better with the ES-R10; just a better natural partner even with the low gain setting on the CFA-3.

    Audio-GD DI-20

    I appreciate everyone's input.... Again- I am not technically minded... The main thing seems to be that most of us like these clocks- including me........

    Audio-GD DI-20

    Fred, this is no contradiction to factual data. All external clocks regardless of phase noise numbers increase jitter yet may sound better due to some other factor which we just don't understand. audio-gd is perhaps one of the best examples of a company which has been severely criticized for...

    Audio-GD DI-20

    My friends, we believe what we choose to believe- all of us.... and we hear what we like...... I think for me to argue with the enormous and nearly universal technical data that 10mhz clocks add jitter is simply foolish. To say that I like the sound of my system with these clocks is personal...

    Audio-GD DI-20

    Another google quote: Hence, outboard clocks typically help INCREASE (not reduce) jitter.

    It is not my experience either. I think our ears and technical truth may not be in sync..

    Audio-GD DI-20

    So- for a fellow who is not technically capable, I'm really getting in over my head. My intention was just to make it clear that it does not seem clear at all that external clocks help- and seemingly- unless I am really misunderstanding these articles- they technically make things worse... You...

    Audio-GD DI-20

    Check out this article: https://www.soundonsound.com/techniques/does-your-studio-need-digital-master-clock Overall, it should be clear from these tests that employing an external master clock cannot and will not improve the sound quality of a digital audio system. It might change it, and...

    Audio-GD DI-20

    If phase noise and jitter are the same thing- than external clocks harm jitter- and do not improve it.. Google quotes: 1. 10MHz master clocks use rate multipliers to convert to digital audio rates, which generate more jitter and tend to have a dirtier spectrum.31 Oct 2020 2. Although external...

    Audio-GD DI-20

    I am not very technically adept but if you look at the Morion site- they say clearly that thermal temperature is the single most important factor in OXCO clock performance. Why?- I have no idea. Stability, and other measurements which I don't understand also effect. In addition- many...
