    Astell&Kern SA700 - Past meets Present

    Just for information. You might know, but SA700 requires about 45 seconds to startup, while PAW6000 said to start in three seconds, literally. And you can't keep SA700 sleeping while not listening, it automatically shuts down while not used, thus every time you listen, you have to wait 45...

    Astell & Kern SR15: A&norma Impressions & Reviews

    I don't know if it is the case, but if you are using SR15 as USB transport, just connecting OTG cable could drain battery significantly. I still haven't tried with my SR15, but I was surprised by battery drain by OTG cable left on SA700. I was using my SA700 as USB transport to external DAC and...

    AP80 - Hidizs next portable Hi-Res music player

    Why? The official site of AP80Pro has Hiby music app connected to AP80Pro. --> I found out it is AP80 and not AP80Pro so this is the reason? But you will think you can connect to AP80Pro if you see this on AP80Pro official site. I know it is Android, but who thinks it is not possible by iOS? I...

    MrSpeakers ETHER Flow and ETHER C Flow -- Inspired by Electrostatic Headphones

    My Ehter Flow pads (older softer one) has depth of 30mm at rear side and 25mm at front. But if you use foam/felt filters, it gets shallower. I use two filters stacked, thus 25mm at rear side and 20mm at front. I don't have Aeon, but maybe you can measure them?

    Astell&Kern SA700 - Past meets Present

    Maybe just my mind. However, I believe though. If you don't believe, it is OK and I won't argue which is correct. It is OK if I am wrong. But then what do you think of insulators/feet/audio-rack for audio amps? Do they affect sound in your opinion? Denon sound manager Yamauchi-san says...

    Astell&Kern SA700 - Past meets Present

    Finish matters to sound, in my opinion. I felt the sound of SS and black different in the shop. And felt that difference reasonable and natural since raw finish one (SS) having raw (clearer) sound compared to blackened one (softer/darker). Yes, this is what I felt and other people might feel...

    AP80 - Hidizs next portable Hi-Res music player

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    I've found measurement in the site below. It's not my site, but he is measuring output voltage by ohms. You can see it dropping significantly when the impedance go down. Read from the graph, at 12ohms, apparently less than 2Vpp which means less than 0.7Vrms. This is typical A&K DAP...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Yeah, could be, but I still need coax and the hole of AES/EBU could fit USB socket size, but would look bad as well.

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    Are there any digital-pre or something alike coming out? I'm concerned that if CD spinner comes out with USB out as best output, I can't use it since the USB port in Yggdrasil is already occupied by cable from my Mac.

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    Thanks. I think it is about headroom. My very weak power Astell & Kern SA700 makes Ether2 loud in volume without maxing out the volume nob, but sounds dull. (SA700 has max 4Vrms with no load, but probably 30mW at 16 ohms, read from measurement graph on review site)

    The New AEON 2: It's The End Of MrSpeakers

    Aeon should be really hard to drive. Its impedance is low but sensitivity is low as well, which means you don't need voltage, but you need amperes a lot. I don't have Aeons, but my Ether 2 (not so far impedance and sensitivity from Aeon2) sounds dull, definitely lacking power (not the volume...

    Astell&Kern SA700 - Past meets Present

    SA700 (and other A&K new portable series) doesn't have much power (amps) in low impedance. Low efficiency low impedance headphones like Ether 2 doesn't sound well on SA700 alone even on 2.5mm, and powerful Mojo (of course on 3.5mm) plays it much better. High impedance standard efficiency...

    Schiit Happened: The Story of the World's Most Improbable Start-Up

    I remember Jason mentioning of it, and he said he always use high gain if possible by his preference. However he also explained that low gain always measures better, since low gain has more negative feed back. To me, I prefer sound of low gain over high gain on Mjolnir 2 with Ether 2 or Ether...

    Schiit Audio Bifrost 2

    Don’t you believe me? The photo on the remote page is for preamp. Can’t you see the option for the type? There are three different remote for preamp/integrated-amp/DAC. They have different buttons for different functions. See the pictographs in the remote with Bifrost.

    No, that remote you are showing is a remote for amps. You can see remote for Bifrost 2 on the Bifrost product photo. Button for volumes in amp is replaced by source selection (you can select direction you move) in Bifrost. And yes, I own Bifrost 2.

    I don't have Qobuz account but my SA700 always show blue on Amazon Music HD whether it is playing 16 bit or 24 bit. Apple Music shows correct at red.

    [dB and watts] You can see conversion table here (see power ration, not amplification ratio): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decibel In general, +1 dB = x1.3 (mW) +3 dB = x2 (mW) +10 dB = x10 (mW) So to simplify, I will calculate from 83 dB/mW and you want to reach 110 dB, 110 dB - 83 dB = +27...
