DSP Active Crossover
Jaytor, Given how good your DAC, preamp and passive crossover are......I can see moving to a stock electronic xover as being just a side ways or lowering quality move.  The analog input and output stages are just op amps in the Danville (nothing ... 
DSP Active Crossover
Jaytor, How is your active system doing?  How does it compare with the passive version?  Any tradeoffs?  My friend in Panama owns the very first Line Force speaker that Danny made and was made from Aluminum.  I just sent him a modded Peachtree Ga... 
Class D amplifiers. What's the future look like?
The guy reviewed the M-60s in July 21.  Look up the review.....guess what?  In the review of the M-60s he did not even mention any other amp.  So, at least he is consistant....consistantly uninforming.....  He writes very good ad copy.  So, you ha... 
Class D amplifiers. What's the future look like?
This is now just turned into another thread on Class D.....rather than what the future of it is.  The Atma-sphere amp may be the best $5400 class D amp you can buy....or maybe not.  The review has nothing to do with that.  He compares (BY MEMORY) ... 
Class D amplifiers. What's the future look like?
What?  A tube manufacturer and dealer comes on to a thread about "What's the FUTURE of class D".....and puts down ALL class d amps without even mentioning what he has heard and specific A/B tests.  Then he tells us all the cool stuff he has and th... 
Class D amplifiers. What's the future look like?
The ego defends and fights.....that is its game. Check out the GaN1 thread here on Audiogon for a couple of posts by people who liked the stock and modded GaN1 better than their $12K system. I did not make this up. So, who do you know that liked... 
Class D amplifiers. What's the future look like?
The only thing that is real is what is experienced. Many have experienced the "latest and sonically best" class D as equal to or even better than class A. Check out the latest from Steve Huff, for instance. He thinks the pure digital class D integ... 
Class D amplifiers. What's the future look like?
I believe direct digital amps are the future. With regular class D you need a DAC and maybe a preamp. Direct digital amps are not only simpler but purer sounding. The modified Peachtree GaN 1 is incredible. Best sound I have heard.....and cheap. M... 
Major innovative break through: The new NSMT Loudspeakers reference speaker
The technology is very valid here.  Same as what Dunlavy was doing 30 years ago.  Time Aligned.....6 db per octave crossover with very little parts (so reasonably in phase).....and very good drivers.  I am sure they sound as described.  However, a... 
Major innovative break through: The new NSMT Loudspeakers reference speaker
NSMT2 For even better sound I recommend changing your coil to a 12 gauge copper wax foil coil from Jantzen (go into the inside of the coil and out the outside)....also bypass your cap with a small value teflon Vcap (make sure both caps are in the... 
Active Speakers - Anything new coming?
Build your own.....you have control over the sound not available in anything mentioned above.....serious high end sound for pennies.....obviously, not a small speaker (16 inches wide) and could be very tall if you do a long line source. And also n... 
DSP Active Crossover
I don't understand how you were using a Tact for bi-amping.  Does it have analog line level outs?  Or is this a digital out for subs?  Or two sets of digital outs?  And how were you using the SHD?  Analog outs or digital outs?  And if you are usin... 
DSP Active Crossover
mijostyn, Did you A/B the minidsp SHD with the latest DEQX in the same system using all the same gear at the same time? "clearly the best" can only be known by serious listening tests. If you did do a serious A/B.....what were the sonic difference... 
DSP Active Crossover
The minidsp SHD (2 way digital xover) uses an ESS 9028 DAC chip......pretty good. The Audiophile Junkie (see his Youtube channel) uses this Minidsp SHD in his super system. I posted this on a couple of other threads.....but I cannot stop talking a...
