  1. I am using DAC8 dsd connected to pre-amp using RCA cables. Both my pre-amp and amp only have RCA. I undertstand that the XLR output is considered better sonically. Does anyone have experience using XLR to RCA adapters? Can it really make a differnence or it's just not worth the effort of even testing it?
  2. Advise on Balanced XLR Cables

    Greetings. I'll soon be needing XLR cables to connect an Emotiva DC-1 dac/preamp to a pair of powered monitors. 20' ought'a do. Any advise?
  3. Hi everyone, My basic setup is as follows: Custom built PC with both USB + OPTICAL outs > Arcam rPAC (with an unbalanced RCA passive volume control) > KRK VXT6 active monitors + 10s subwoofer I want to replace my Arcam rPAC and the unbalanced volume control with a DAC which has: balanced XLR outputs, a volume control and optical input. (budget around £350/$500) I'm hoping this will eliminate the noise issue I've been having for ages now. And yes, I've tried endlessly to fix that other ways but to no avail. One I've been looking at is the Matrix Mini-I Pro, however I haven't been able to find any retailers here in the UK which sell it. Any suggestions are very much appreciated! Thanks all.
  4. Hi, I just bought the NAD M12-M22 combo which works really well in my system (Roon on a computer, playing redbook and high-rez music from a NAS, with Monitor Audio Gold 300 speakers). However I still have old & crappy RCA cables connecting the M12 to the M22 which a friend told me is some kind of heresy. I am willing to spend US$ 100-200 to replace them and would appreciate some opinion on whether, in this price range, XLR cables would have a chance to sound better than RCA cables. I know I should try them both and keep the best one but my usual dealer wouldn't let me take both and bring one back... Cheers, Chris
  5. FOR A LIMITED TIME RECEIVE A FREE GROUNDING BLOCK ($598 value) When You Buy A Pair Of Atmosphere Level 4 Speaker Cables or 2 Pairs of Atmosphere Level 4 Interconnects Thanks to evolving UEF Technology first pioneered in Synergistic Research's award winning HFTs and ECTs they can now build non-active cables with performance levels only surpassed by our Reference Galileo LE Active interconnects and speaker cables. Think of what this means; no more MPCs or the complexity of multiple power supplies and without sacrificing the legendary holographic sound of SR Active Shielding. Just plug and play for the highest levels of performance in the industry with features not found on other cables. Atmosphere Series cables deliver music on a massive scale with the same ultra black backgrounds Synergistic Research Active Shielded Cables are famous for. In fact Atmosphere Series cables are the most holographic and highest resolution interconnects and speaker cables they’ve ever produced coming remarkably close to our Reference Galileo LE interconnects and speaker cables. Thanks to significantly reduced build times and cutting edge Synergistic Research technology, Atmosphere Series Cables deliver state-of-the-art performance at price points other cables cannot match. The Synergistic Research Grounding Block was engineered to improve ground performance on their new Atmosphere Series interconnects and speaker cables, as well as all SR products with external ground plane connections like Tranquility Base isolation platforms, FEQ and Atmosphere wave generators. By cleaning up your system’s ground connection you hear a noticeable improvement in soundstage height, depth and width thanks to a lower noise floor. Soundstage scale is improved with richer tonal density especially at the edges of your soundfield. Image outlines are brought into clearer focus while musicality and overall system refinement are greatly improved. With optional connectivity cables the SR Ground Block also improves the performance of turntables, DAC’s, Pre-Amps, Power Amps, USB devices or any component with an active circuit inside. Optional High-Def connectivity ground cables are available for the following applications: [*=left]Turntables – Connect to Ground Plug on Turntable [*=left]Digital to Analog Converters (DACs) – Connect to spare Digital Input, Output or Chassis Ground [*=left]Pre-Amplifiers – Connect to spare Analog Input, Output or Chassis Ground [*=left]Power Amplifiers – Connect to spare Analog Input, Output or Chassis Ground.

  6. Hello all, I have an Audio Note Dac 2.1 x Signature which has an Unbalanced S/PDIF and a Balanced AES (XLR) input. This is perfect for a CD transport to DAC but I am struggling to work out the best way to get from a computer. I ideally would like to setup a MiniMac as a music server. I could output via USB or HDMI. I would imagine that HDMI is the better output for digital audio seeing as it was designed for it, unlike USB, but USB has been around longer and there are there seem to me more choices for converters from USB. Do any of you recommend one over the other? There are definitely Audiophile USB to S/PDIF and AES converters out there but are there any Audiophile HDMI to S/PDIF and AES converters and have any of you compared them? This is possibly a huge subject but I would be grateful if any of you could point me in the right direction. Many thanks, DBD
  7. Hi folks, I've now had PS Audio DirectStream DAC for about 4 months, and am enjoying it. However, I've recently noticed that in the absence of any music I can hear a constant soft buzzing from the right channel (speakers/headphones). There is absolutely nothing in the left channel. Only in the right side. 1. If I unplug my speaker cables from my monoblock amps the buzzing disappears: i.e., not in speakers 2. If I unplug the (XLR) interconnects between the DAC and my monoblock amps the buzzing disappears: i.e., not in the amps 3. If I unplug the USB connection between my Mac and the DS the buzzing DOES NOT disappear: i.e., not in Mac... In the DS! 4. If I swap the (XLR) interconnects between the right and the left connectors at the back of the DS the buzzing moves to the other side. So it looks like the buzzing is coming from the RIGHT XLR connector at the back of my DS. It's actually quite annoying as I can hear it up to 1 meter away from my right speaker, and can hear it quite distinctly in the right side of my headphones. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be causing this buzzing? Thanks very much for any advice! Art I am using a Mac Mini/Macbook, with Uptone JS-2 LPS, Regen, the DirectStream, Woo Audio WA234 Monoblock Amps, with a P10 Powerplant, and Nordost Valhalla2 power cables and XLR interconnects.

  9. Xlr dac

    Hello All, I am going to buy some Genelec 8030 speakers for home. What DACs should I consider. At work I have the Meridian Explorer, which sounds fine to me, and I'd like not to spend more than about the same amount. But I need a DAC with XLR outputs. Ideas?! Thanks! Michael
  10. I'm a new beginner at this, but usually a quick lerner. I'm thinking about trying to build a music server. At the moment I'm just looking for possible (high resolution compatible) hardware. If I start a build, it is important that the music server will have either 'S/PIDF coaxial out' or 'AES/EBU (AES3?) XLR out'. Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction for hardware with 'S/PDIF coaxial out' or 'AES/EBU XLR out'? Or is there a really good reason why most people build music server with USB out? If software is the problem, I think I might have that covered. I just got a friend who is a programing wizard interested in high resolution digital audio. So if there is hardware with 'digital coaxial out' or 'digital XLR out' that could be usable with some coding, that might be even better. Thanks /Filip
