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

        I assume it's USB out of the RPi?

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

      Pulled the PM Butte from storage - man I love this amp! It really packs a wallop in the bass.

        I will eventually build this. I have the PCB and PM has the cases in stock. I even have a 10k tkd pot so I can check how well it fits.

        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.

        Pretty much why everything I have at the moment was bought used. Could be worse, though. At least people can wait for others to get bored of their Elex and put it up F/S while they move on to the next FotM. Saves you a few bucks that way, though you're gonna lose in shipping, handling, and taxes anyway (sigh).

        Hi @Poleepkwa. Start a thread in the DIY forum. Let me know what drivers and enclosure you have, and I'll take a look at it.

        I will focus on the crossover only. But I need to know what you have to work with it. Also, if you can provide the current crossover it would be helpful in order to diagnose and correlate with what you hear and what you would like to do.
