Re: Flat Earth - what does it mean in Hi-Fi terms?

I think the meaning has been reinvented and shifted numerous time over the years. It's just a catch all term for simply designed uk kit.

Re: Audio Addicts (ex The Audio Forum)

Actually he's bought one of tom Christians 686 amps. It's the six output device, stereo chassis version of my monos. I guess that makes mine 486s.

A great amp from an ex TI engineer.

Re: Music on the move

Still rocking a last gen ipod. Binned the hd and fitted a quad sdxc card and 400 gig of cards to it. Run time is over 25 hours and there's space for all my digital music in lossless.

Re: HiFi Foo Fight

Wire purity, ffs. Unless you draw it through diamond dies in an inert atmosphere and simultaneously extruded molten fep over it you can't get past 5n. Wire purity is based on the ingot purity, its not assayed from finished wire samples.

Re: AoS

I had a good chat with tony at the show. He was waxing lyrical about his grounding boxes and noise up in the ghz region. He still has no numbers to prove his wild claims, just the usual shills and suckers.

Re: Chinese £5 DAC laid bare

Looks like it's an integrated dac on a chip with receiver, dac and clock and outputs all on one part. One psu rail, no decoupling, precious little regulation, waste of time.

Re: Getting the best from Streaming music

Just added a transformer output stage to my pi stack. Sounds great, a little smoother than the opamp iv setup. Theres loads of playing to be done with them
