    Article: Kii THREE Loudspeaker Review

    Next time I'm in the Gramophone I'll ask Bryan if he used to be located there. They've moved around a few times over the years and are currently in a nice spot just south of Whyte Ave. I was hoping to listen to the Kii Three's the last time I was in there but he was a bit busy and then he must have just shipped them out for this review shortly thereafter.

    For female vocals, I'm particularly fond of this:

    Jeff Dorgay & TONEAudio Declare War on CA

    My internet connection went down yesterday and I had to put my phone down and talk to my family. They seem like nice people...... 😃
  4. Just came across this DIY server build that incorporates a Burson Play DAC. Thought it might be interesting to share with the community.
  5. My Focal Utopia headphones.

    Is an HD Download of the remastered SACD version available anywhere now?

    Windows "Lean"

    Does anyone have any information on this newer "lean" version of Windows that is coming out? Is it something that may be of benefit to those who are currently trying to trim down their Windows OS music servers using things like AO, Fidelizer etc?
  9. I simply cheated and edited my HDTracks profile's address to a U.S.-based address. That seemed to work for me for getting around region restrictions.

    Headphones for gaming

    Are you a PC or console gamer? Are you following the buzz around Audeze's new planar, PC-gamer focused Mobius headphones? 5.1/7.1 3D surround with head tracking. Bluetooth wireless to boot. They have an Indiegogo page where you can jump in and pre-order at a discount (regular $399 USD, and I think you can still jump in for $269). Released in June. You can follow the buzz over at Head-Fi

    A crowd funded motherboard(s) for audiophiles - Part 1

    Yes, I understand that you're building a server....I'm just asking if any quality NAA can outperform a server (sonically speaking), why would you want to build a server? If upstream noise affects an NAA, wouldn't it make more sense to improve the quality of the NAA? Building a superior solution with a server seems like a much more difficult (not to mention more expensive) task. Anyway, sorry for possibly hijacking the thread....I'll let the server discussions play out. Cheers

    A crowd funded motherboard(s) for audiophiles - Part 1

    I would think that the ideal hardware setup would be an NAA-like device that was barebones and optimized for performing ethernet-USB bridge duties. Choose hardware that absolutely minimized noise coming into the system via ethernet/power and generated as clean a USB signal to the DAC as possible. I wouldn't care if the PC I chose to do RoonServer and HQP processing was noisy as hell because I wouldn't have that beast sitting anywhere near my audio listening room. It would be down in the basement where I would never hear it. Just my $0.02.

    Do audiophiles watch the Superbowl?

    That's about 10 degrees warmer than it is right now in Edmonton. And I still have zero interest.
  14. That sounds like a great idea for you and LH Labs to team up on

    Ethernet cables

    At the risk of re-starting a flame war, I just received an email from Cookie at Blue Coast Records where she discussed how an ethernet cable sounded different: Can Ethernet Cables Make A Difference? Can anyone shed some light on what Cookie may have been hearing here?
