Digital / Going to try and build a Non-oversampling DAC
« Last post by albertusj on Today at 09:47:49 AM »
I'm planning to build a non-oversampling DAC with SPDIF interface. I'm going to need some glue logic, but it could be fun.

Bought these babies on eBay. I've only seen more gold on my mother-in-law.

Open Talk / Re: Any ideas for a "side hustle"? I'm bored.

If you can tutor Trig you've just found yourself a lucrative side hustle right there!

My son is in matric & tutors math to children in the grades below him. A cool R450-00 an hour thank you very much.

There is a big difference between WANT TO and CAN DO.   But alas R450 an hour for something I ALREADY DO?!? I can add another kid to the mix? :thinking:

General Discussion / Re: ADDING A POWER AMP
« Last post by Vaughan on Today at 09:38:25 AM »
But, when someone like Vaughn makes a recommendation that your Rotel AVR is sufficient, itís because they, as most veterans, know that Rotel has rated their equipment honestly over the course of the companyís history.

This is called a "strawman argument"- misrepresenting an opponents true position by fabricating an imaginary one in its place. Also very disingenuous of you.

In my experience people don't always know when they have enough power. Many have this romantic idea in their minds that speakers have feelings and emotions and can "sing" with greater verve and conviction the more power you give them. I know because I deal with clients all the time who think this way and I know that some on this forum think this way.

There comes a point where a surplus of power does nothing for sound quality - figuring that out takes a little technical and practical experience, but the sophomoric idea that more power is always better is a silly audiophile belief born out of ignorance. This belief is only reinforced by poorly done, unbalanced auditions of power amps.

AVR's are not a perfect solution, but in at least some cases they are capable of driving speakers without audible distortion which is often ignored as a possibility.

Youíre not telling us anything we donít already know

Earlier you seemed oblivious to the technical (and audible) advantages of high-passing large main speakers.

Who says the OP isnít a goth or a metal head. Not him. Point is, we have both made recommendations based on nothing.

You continue to miss the point. The OP has confirmed he is not experiencing audible problems that would indicate to us that his amplifier is ill-equipped to drive his speakers.

Talk about a tempest in a teapot!
