    It's that my TT2 is on a desk. Right now there are things like batteries within 30cm of the back of the TT2. I have even put a sheet of tablets near the rear of the TT2, not thinking about the metal coating. I actually used the cables at the back of the TT2 to hold the tablets once.

    Do what I suggest then and plug in some XLR plugs that don't have any wire in them.

    Am probably not going to get to test that. 0dB in high gain is my max. Not just for tolerable volume, although for a second I could listen to more than 0dB. Also for safety. Rob said that the max he can use for his speakers are +7dB. I think I could go that high, but am not willing to test over 0dB in single ended mode.

    I only mentioned +3H and +13L because those were the volumes you mentioned. I didn't realise you were driving speakers direct, I did my test listening into an amplifier where I could set the sensitivity to cope with +3H and +13L. Anyway, you really don't need to test it, the volume level in Low gain is exactly the same for the same indicated volume when in High gain.

    Yes I could check the levels using an amplifier for +3dB in low and high gain. It would make sense that you are right. I risked it and did a quick check with TT2 at +3 dB. It did sound similar. However I didn't test for long enough to be sure. I don't doubt that you are right since you tested it and you said Rob said so.

    I think I am confused because of the post that I quoted of Robs, where he said the following. (Post #128 of 7249 )
    Low gain mode: This changes the gain of the amplifier, and limits the output to a maximum of 3V RMS RCA (6V RMS XLR).
    Use the volume control: So setting the volume to -3dB will limit it to 3v RMS, exactly the same as Dave and Hugo 2; so just 4 clicks down (-7 dB) will mean 1.9v RMS maximum.

    What I mean is, if -3dB is 3V RMS. Then how can Low Gain mode limit the output to 3V RMS, since LG mode goes above -3dB? LG mode gets louder if you increase volume over -3dB.

    EDIT: Secondly, I think it might be that +3dB low gain is 3V RMS. (As opposed Rob saying -3dB is 3V RMS.) It's because the colour volume indicator is only one shade from 3V RMS on the Hugo 2. Of course they may not be related.

    Anyway, right now I am confused and possibly not making sense, so I give up.

    The icons for them are in roon now.

    Yesterday they were not there, and I don't remember my roon updating itself.

    Ahwell, now we can use the proper icons but, what happens if we have both the mscaler and TT2, we only get to pick one icon, not both like mojo and poly.

    I watched a video on perfect pursuit by the dude from Roon, he was saying that when a device is Roon ready, that Roon give code to the manufacturer to embed in the hardware. I wonder what the case with mscaler/tt2 is. And is it only subject to using usb. Does it actually mean anything in this specific case.

    I would definetly consider buying the cheaper minimus wooden box for real. With 2 weeks money back gurantee if i dident hear a difference for the better. Something about draning away high frequency stay currents floating about in the system and it will find a home in the wooden box instead. The wonders of hifi.

    Unplugged the atlas mavros rca grun cables from my streamer and damn how much worse the hugo2 direct driving hd800s sounded. Hugo 2 is connected to same streamer with spdif.Really night and day. I would think this is the same level of removing an mscaler. So draning away rfi/emi is crucial.

    Could you explain a little more plz.

    Does anyone know the exact specs of TT2's Bluetooth module ?

    Is it BT 4.2 or 5.0, is it aptx low latency or aptx hd, or is it just aptx, does it support ldac ? Etc etc etc.

    Anyone ?

    Why not build your own minimus box, it will probably save you like the entire cost.

    I'm sure 6 bits of wood can be found or thrown over the fence of B&Q outdoors so one can pick it up after leaving the store.

    Either that or umm, buy a £10 wooden breadbox from argos.

    What is in the box, can anyone price a diy equivalent?
