Re: Chord Hugo TT 2 & MScaler

I am suspicious that a lot has been made of the RF issues by sellers of rip off BNC cables. [/quote] You and me both. His web blurb used to claim they were based on measurement, so I asked him did he have figures to show the db drop in hF noise and over what range this attenuation occurred. After a...

Re: The New Wigwam

I thought it a big coincidence Doc, how many uk hifi forum guys are there who've used that name. I've only ever seen Trunky or any variation on the theme once in the past 15 years. Admittedly I don't get to AA and other similar sites.

Re: Record cleaning and WD40 enhancement

My mate Ken, who is an old duffer, has done the same for years. WD40 and wet play... I'm not sure it's for me but he swears by it.

Re: Do phono plugs *really* sound different?

I 'prefer' to use Eichmanns of the JLE's but solely because I like the fact they are easy to solder and have little metal in them. Do they sound different, not at my house they don't. As a species we are very good at discerning pattern and difference. We're hard wired to do it and genetically bred t...

Re: 'Popping/thumping' sound from system

I have home plugs, I can hear them in the hifi room and the conservatory. As in airborne hear them, like a high pitched warble right on the edge of my hearing. The odd thing is, there's no electrical apparatus other than lights in the conservatory and in the hifi room the speakers are silent. Unplug...

I'll have to get one to investigate, maybe there is an eprom in there. He sure as shit isn't writing any code for flpga's or usb receivers.

Re: The Audio Standard Forum.

Can anyone explain how Stanley is able to write a firmware upgrade for his dac that specifically allows it to sound better with a bodged in upgraded clock board?

Has he magically rewritten the code on the embedded processor inside the spdif receiver chip?

They're lapping it up.

Re: Last Live Listen

I was very fortunate to see Angela Hewitt last night. She performed all of the Well Tempered Clavier, in the round at the Crucible. Awesome venue, basically the small practice room that they use for the snooker but with stepped seating for 300 on three tiers. Somehow the Mrs managed to get ground fl...
