Why and how cables can impact sound

Play MQA files on Denafrips Venus 2 R2R DAC

Aaron . 发布

As it turns out the Denafrips Venus 2 can play MQA files with a very simple solution. The SMSL DP5 or SD9 streamer will directly interface with Venus 2 over I2S using a regular HDMI cable (no pin configuration required!) You can then stream Tidal Masters using mconnect software over DLNA and output the fully unfolded file over I2S. A 48kb 24bit MQA file will display 4 x 48kb on the Venus 2 indicating that the full unfold has been received.  And it's that Simple!  MQA + R2R = Audio Bliss 👍 Enjoy!

SILVER MAINS CABLE IMPACT ON SOUND

Aaron . 发布

Contrary to this logic, numerous machine made copper cables are offering claims of great results. However, in my experience, most of these mass produced cables do not bring any significant improvement. And like many who started the journey with an Isotek sequel that left you dissaponted, perhaps even questioning legitemency of power cable improvements. Agree or disagree, most copper based...

S.M.S.L SU-8s subjective observations and first impressions

Aaron . 发布

Well I don't normally get time to review gear with all the cable building and order packing but with the recent spotlight on SMSL (wink) I though I would spend a little time with this one, the SU8s.     Based on subjective listening tests:    Well I think I will keep this one short and just jump right to my verdict opinion, "its fantastic!" Why you ask when it is a basic SMPS, op-amp based unit with subpar output stage and only one es9068 chip... well because it actually sounds great! not fatiguing at all like every other DAC I...
