Re: Looking for recommendation for Phono Stage

Lastly, I'm not averse to using solid state to help maximise the clean gain. In which case it might be worth looking at Rod Coleman's shunt cascode boards on DIY Audio. Rod's posted circuits for phonos and is generally really helpful supporting his stuff - he'd no doubt suggest a circuit. You're br...

Re: ES9023 DAC Board - Free to a good home!

No huge rush from my side Ray. Before Christmas would be nice, in case I get a bit of time.

Re: Squeezebox wanted

Last time I looked they weren't available in Europe. Interesting to see how much more we have to pay than the US...

I wonder how the Katana compares to the best DACs? Probably not too far behind and diminishing returns would set in fairly quickly I'd imagine.

Re: Nothing In Particular

Thanks Ray. Re. driving, sadly standards have declined considerably. If everyone's playing the same game it's a lot safer, but now there are lots of different games being played. A car followed me for about a mile last week, never indicated once. When she pulled up behind me at traffic lights I coul...

Re: Squeezebox wanted

I second Nick's suggestion. I have a SB3 and a Duet and Controller (though I use Squeezer app on my phone and tablet - you can use a computer too) but I also have a Pi with an Allo Boss DAC connected via I2S so one just plugs in to the other via the headers. Dead easy, cheap, and surprisingly good. ...

Re: Something stirs in the Undergrowth

Thanks Mark, that looks a great start! I need to think about it a bit more, but that's an interesting suggestion regarding the choke.

Maybe. I couldn't get anywhere near his design performance.
