Gary Wright has passed away
On skate dates my husband and I couple-skated to "Dream Weaver." R.I.P. Gary.  
What was your first record?
Diana Ross and the Supremes, "Merry Christmas." I got that album when I was 12 years old on Christmas morning along with a new turntable. Still have it today. No scratches! Also got on 45, "Get Me to the Church on Time," with flip side, "Down the ... 
Denafrips FPGA Firmware Update
Sorry about the confusion. But yes, Denafrips denied me the upgrade. I didn't ask for it. They brought it up. I asked about possible future USB input upgrades. They asked for an order record saying they couldn't find one for me. When I told them I... 
Denafrips FPGA Firmware Update
@dman1974 Am I the only one who purchased a used DAC? I'm just telling my experience, which others in the same boat might find relevant. I'm unable to get the FPGA upgrade because I'm the "3rd" owner. Are you aware of a way to download the upgrade... 
Denafrips FPGA Firmware Update
In April I made an inquiry asking if the developers had ever considered changing the input USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 on the Terminator Plus DAC for those of us still using a computer/HQ Player combo and was sent this: "I can’t trace your terminator orde... 
Certain frequencies hurt
@ erik_squires I did not change power cords to "fix" my ears hurting. The ears started hurting "after" installing new power cords. I got upgraditis and thought changing the generic power cords for "better ones" would increase SQ. The solid state a... 
Certain frequencies hurt
Haven't been to an audiologist in decades. I'll make an appointment. Thanks. Weird though, that the pain doesn't occur with headphones.  
Certain frequencies hurt
I'm open to suggestions. The ears hurt when listening to certain frequencies thru my speakers so my solution was headphones, since they don't hurt. Like I said I've changed out power cords, DAC and power amp all in the last few months. Wouldn't th...

Your audiophile chair
@roxy54 it is indeed, height adjustable, (my speakers are fairly tall), reclines, has a small headrest and a foot rest. Quite comfy.

How might this effect those who already have ARC equipment? I own a preamp and am waiting delivery on a power amp. Both used.  
Cowboy Bebop Remake - The best Jazz on TV?
I'm nearly a year and a half late to this thread, but it was my kids who turned me on to CB music almost 20 years ago. Can't remember if it was my daughter or youngest son who bought the "Blue" soundtrack as a teen but I thought it was great. So g...

convert?
The only things plugged into my desktop are the Terminator Plus through USB 3.0 and a monitor per HDMI. I emailed Denafrips and asked about future possible 3.0 USB port installation in their DACs. I mentioned the drop outs and they responded sayin...
