SchiitPiEitr? When is this coming? Great video by Darko - those Schiitboys are a hoot. Dec 13, 2018 at 3:24 AM

        Cool, so that is what they are planning! I envisioned a Pi/ Eitr one box solution that takes USB in and spits it out "cleaned".

      My hearing is down 20db at 6khz, back to normal after 8khz. Leftovers from my DJ days...

        Yup, literature says that this is the first place to go when exposed to dangerous SPLs, unless I'm misremembering. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed for advancements in med tech. Also mildly irked it's just the one ear in my case, that'd explain some things.

        Bass ftw :))

        I can sympathise, although do not worry to much. My daughter is deaf in one ear and has very good hearing in the others. It is amazing to what she can do with that one ear.

        Yup. Sounds right. 4 to 6kHz. High frequency hearing loss from age is in the top octave. Even then, it's not loss, but rather decreased sensitivity. Hearing damage is deep nulls in the upper mids.

      268 pages on Shanling M0, no comments on how it stacks up against well know references: "its sounds good for something so small". Sheesh.

        I had a M0 briefly and literally never plugged anything into the jack. I only got it for LDAC streaming (which it did not-great at) and so I returned it and got a used ZX300 instead.

      Schiit Eitr vs Allo DigiOne. It seems a bit harder than I thought, as I cannot swop between them quickly.

        Yes. While I like the Allo digione, the Eitr is more flexible in application and should negitate the fancy PSU for the Pi. Probably.

        Not sure about the bass though. Works well when in office, but maybe a bit mild for usage on the go.

        It’s the goal of any publicly traded corporation to put share value first so yeah.. it would be nice if they put consumers first but it doesn’t happen unless doing so is tied to share value.

        @atomicbob, I didn't see it on that web page, but isn't part of the reason for lab usb hubs to prevent crazy stuff being sent up the wire to the host computer? PCs are better when they are not exploding ;)

        @Thad E Ginathom the main purpose is to minimize noise downstream to the USB device, especially when testing USB devices in an EMI screen room.

        You are correct, material matters. Plastic will only act as dust caps. Metal is needed for RFI performance.

        @atomicbob, do you think there is a meaningful difference in performance between (1) gold-plated copper with no PFTE/Teflon insulation and (2) nickel-plated brass with PFTE/Teflon insulation?

      4. atomicbob

        Without testing both on a specific device with known RFI susceptibility, I couldn't predict which would be better for any given circumstance. When testing preamps and amps, I run quick tests with / without external grounding and input terminations to see which combination yields best performance.
