Sanity check, dac with rca + xlr output. Run both at same time = sq suffers. So the dac is current limited and not much I can do? Dec 12, 2017

        Parasound dac1600, it's going into a vintage integrated amp and a hp amp via balanced. Have tried both headroom and ecp dsha1and even 2 int amps with same issues.

        Was emailing with ECP Doug and we determined it seems like the DAC has really high voltage out but is not producing enough current. I need to re-investigate maybe making pads/attenuators again, made some but divided too much voltage in the end. That switch would work but $100 worth for a DAC that is on a good day worth $400 :)

        Electronic engineers' secret: the current flowing to your headphones doesn't know how much the conductor cost ;)

      Anyone in the market for a well sorted vpi classic 3 SE? One on the sh classifieds (private) complete setup for under 3.5 bills shipped.

        CA residents that want to avoid shipping can buy my Classic 3 for about the same fyi etc etc

      That moment when you've realize you had mono selected on your stereo for about the last 6 months...

        I thought I was the only one who'd made such a mistake.. I was under the impression my MacBook audio stack was busted for a year until I rediscovered the "Play as mono" accessibility setting.

        I bought a few Miles Davis mono reissues from Record Store Day about 2012. Vivid reverb that filled the room. I was pretty shocked. Sketches of Spain imaged extremely well with all those players at once.

        I know the reason why I originally flipped the switch, it was due to scooping a Mono record that I can't even recall anymore. For the life of me I probably only own 3 or so mono albums, I don't go out of my way to get them usually due to price/scarcity. Makes me wonder if I made any false judgment calls on that SQ for other records or gear. Can't say I could complain those 6 months at least!

        I am going to ignore this thing for now. The moment Ego-ye can flow like Rakim or Nas and be nice, yeah then I buy his albums. He claims prizes and begs for money while ejaculating to bring revelations to us all. Fucking hell no!

        Remember when Kanye was just some producer who kept his mouth shut and made kinda nice soul-inflected beats? That didn't last long.

      Marantz tt15s1 so far quite underwhelmed :(

        Yeah, I still have mine laying around. I think its a decent table for the money, but the step between my old Project Debut Carbon and the TT15 was much smaller than between the TT15 and by Classic Signature. What preamp are you running with it?

        Phonomena ii, with the virtuoso cart it's like blanket over the speakers bad. I swappend in at33ptg/ii and it greatly improved (alignment is it even possible? ?) The ergonomics of this table are kind of frustrating though.

        There are some weird things going on on ebay. Lots of audio stuff is way over MSRP. I wonder if they're just hoping some dope buys it... Or is there some other kind of scam going on. not sure.

        I think with the Gungnir in particular there was a metal shortage so their production is behind. Now they have gotten scarce fast; I guess it makes sense the law of scarcity and incredibly high demand? I remember seeing Gumby's going for as low as $900 (mikek200) not too long ago but, $850 shipped for a used non-mb is just insanity.
