Wuut? When did the Loki Mini+, a revised Loki suddenly appear? That's the question no one seems to have an answer for - except for @rhythmdevils who I believe may have snagged one not too long after he was defrosted - after being trapped in the ice for decades by fascists. Oh wait, that's a movie. The original Loki I never really gave much thought to. As an audio purist somewhat, the OG Loki was just another unnecessary piece of gear in the signal path, mucking things up. Yes, I could hear the OG Loki when it was switched in the signal path. However, the truth is that I didn't know what to do with the wide EQ bands of the Loki. I knew how to use PEQ and/or digital EQ to get the results I wanted - in a surgical way. This is where @rhythmdevils came in. I've always loved his approach because it's experimental as he uses his senses without the aid of measurements, numbers, etc. It's a human approach. Probably too much to the chagrin of today's objectivists. But who cares? When was the last time we went to a headphone to meet up with real people with shared interests and bumped into an objectivist. Never. Anyway, I heard that @rhythmdevils that the Loki EQ is supposed to be fun, a right brained activity. Do it Marv, you have good ears. Use the Force. I know you don't need measurements. Have fun. And you know what, he's absolutely right! I finally figured it out: the Loki ain't an EQ, it's four way tone control. Go at it. Before we move on, first I will present my "RealTHD" Tic-Tac-THD panel. We do not see any concerning issues. The measurements we see here are quite good! The higher THD with the low level sounds 2mVrms is at a voltage level 1000 times lower than max. This tends to be normal because we are starting to bump into dynamic range / noise floor limits. The high frequency THD at the max voltage is worse relative to the others, but on an absolute level, nothing to be concerned about. These are test signals, so it's more or less impossible that we will experience a 2Vrms 9.3kHz signal in real music. Finally, these numbers are academic. If you believe in the temple of SINAD, or that THD of -75 is really bad, then go away. SBAF is a forum of reason and science, not dogma and religion.
