Re: what are you doing ?

Chance would be a fine thing, as soon as i put them on a group of people immediately want to talk to me...... its amazing, i can have had hours where nobody has said a word, but as soon as they go on, people want to tell me important things :shock: I do have a set of wireless sennheisers, but i ...

Re: what are you doing ?

Well i did well I got through 1 side of an lp i wanted to listen to before having to turn it off. because everyone came in wanting something, moaning about unimportant things, talking to each other at 100db despite being three feet away from each other, rowing over who was going on what computer ect...

Re: Classic Cartridges

When i get a cartridge, regardless of what it is, i always put on the records that piss me off. If i can get through those records, then i let them loose on my 'good' stuff. ( though most people would probably have a different defenition of good....) The thing with that m55 was that it had a certain...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Yep, just spray on the cleaning fluid and brush in, leave it to sit a minute to clean it, and vacuum off as usual. Then spray on the rodi water, brush in, leave it a minute and vacuum off. Didnt expect anything, i thought it was a load of old rubbish to rinse it off tbh. Maybe not. Just noticable en...

Re: Nothing In Particular

Got a few records over the past few weeks, new ones, as unfortunately russ who ran the indoor market stall record shop has had to give up due to illness. Gave them all a clean on the moth as they were all static-y. Then, after cleaning, i gave them a rinse. Never bothered before. Reson being is that...

Re: Dac for an arcam delta 170.3 transport

No worries ed, its just piqued my interest I wonder if this soundcard would provide a way of accessing the data somehow, with its optical in, though is have thought it was just a dac https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274468255000 I was looking at it for the kids gaming pc as it doesnt have a nice soundcard...

Re: Zero emission road vehicles.

me, because a quad cam many turboed w16 is to me an engineering masterpiece :D and it makes the most glorious noise
But then im the kind of person who wants one of those v8 engine block coffee tables just to look at.
But the tesla and its ilk are the future, and thats a very good thing

Re: Dac for an arcam delta 170.3 transport

The thing that i was commenting on is the fact that the squeezebox into the topping dac sounds fine, but the cd transport into the topping dac sounds different. I was musing that the data being fed to the dac from the sb and the cd transport should be the same data, as the data that the squeezebox i...

Re: Dac for an arcam delta 170.3 transport

the thing that intrigues me is the fact that the difference is not subtle. I was expecting a subtle difference, but not a marked difference i can point at. A few years ago when i had the first sb and an apple tv, there was a subtle difference between the 2, and a subtle difference between those, and...

Re: Dac for an arcam delta 170.3 transport

The cd rips are all apple lossless, and to be honest i dont know it the topping dac upsamples or reclocks. its their new one and is dsd 512 and 32/768 (i think) capable, and its set at a fixed output level so theres no digital attenuation going on. It can attenuate, but ive set it up so it doesn't F...

Re: Dac for an arcam delta 170.3 transport

The dac as far as i can tell should be seeing the essentially the same data stream up its optical input, the cd transport sending the original data from the cd and the sb sending a copy of that data. I just swapped the optical cable from the sb to the transport so there shouldnt be any appreciable d...
