The Midnight Effect - Who-How?
I’m racking my brains but I can’t think of anything that happens automatically in the house at or around midnight. We’re pretty low tech. But this isn’t something I’m observing that’s peculiar to this location, I’ve heard it at other places I’ve l... 
The Midnight Effect - Who-How?
@toddalin source primarily is files played back from a local hard drive which is plugged into a SGC i5 (like a NUC), wired into a switch then the switch wired (Ethernet) to a network player/DAC. I don’t stream much from the internet, just for samp...

@elliottbnewcombjr That's exactly what I needed, thanks!   
The Midnight Effect - Who-How?
@tomic601 Honestly I'm embarrassed to say it but no, I don't have a dedicated line to the listening room. It's something I've thought about doing frequently but just haven't gotten around to it. Though....I'm skeptical about the potential benefits... 
The Midnight Effect - Who-How?
@knittersspouse okay that’s very interesting information. I hadn’t thought about electricity coming from different sources and each source carrying with it a certain type of “distortion”. That right there could be the answer I’m looking for. Skept... 
The Midnight Effect - Who-How?
@tomic601  You missed my comment about measuring you ambient noise floor at various times….. that’s ok….most audiophiles lack an SPL meter for level matching and other essential tasks….. I caught your comment. It’s a valid enough point but I don... 
The Midnight Effect - Who-How?
@whart  PPS: I took a quick look at the PS Audio forum and there seems to be some suggestion that its regenerators are still susceptible to certain forms of noise. One user, John H, was a frequent contributor to those discussions.   I wasn’t awa... 
The Midnight Effect - Who-How?
@bbarten  you asked: So, is this a consistent phenomenon?  Does it happen every time the circumstances are the same? That’s a great question. Obviously it needs to be measurable and repeatable for it to be “real”. On the measurable side, it come... 
The Midnight Effect - Who-How?
Just a couple things based on some comments above… equipment warm up is not what I’m referring to when I talk about the midnight effect. That’s real, but it’s a different thing altogether. I might start a listening session in the early afternoon, ...

Help Connecting Computer To 2-Channel Rig For Video
It’s all 2-channel gear, no receiver or AV.  I just ordered an Apple TV box and a HDMI splitter with audio out. I’m not 100% sure it’s what I need but I will find out soon enough :)    
ASR Emitter PS/ Battery - Can you plug any of these into a power regenerator/conditioner?
I run my battery powered Veloce pre/power into a regenerator. (PS Audio P10). If there’s a 110v input then I can’t think of a technical reason why it shouldn’t be connected to the output on a regenerator, assuming it’s stable and suitably rated, ... 
Integrating video streaming into a dedicated audiophile system
@lectronjh50  Hi… I just came across this thread and I have a system configured similar to yours where I connect an oppo blueray player via HDMI to a overhead projector and the oppo to my preamp. It works great for spinning disc media in the oppo... 
Excellent Solid State or Hybrid Monoblocks Recommendations
I ran Aerial 7b with a pair of Veloce Audio Saetta Hybrid monoblocks. The amps are battery units with a pair of 6H30 tubes on the input to a Hypex class D module. MSRP was $18K, used price is all over the map. I've owned the Veloce amps for a cou...
