  1. Have owned the above recommended HDPLEX and they are excellent value for money. Also extremely versatile, so can adapt to system changes and are easy to sell on as they are the power supply equivalent of a Swiss Army penknife.
  2. Vienna Teng - Dreaming through the noise A really unusual and beautiful female voice combined with magic piano playing.
  3. I I think the original question was just about lowering the noise floor, not just random noise. I'm certainly not clever or knowledgeable enough to identify or name the cause of any out of phase noise component generated by the original signal but I certainly believe it could exist. Whatever it's mechanism of generation. The main point being it would only be present when the signal (music) was playing and therefore could not be heard as hiss, hum or other when no signal was present. As such it would almost seem not to exist.
  4. Agreed if the noise was indeed random. However, if the signal (music) itself was the cause of the generated out of phase component or 'noise' then it would not be random and you would never hear the out of phase component (noise) when no music was playing.
  5. This would not necessarily have to be the case. If even a low level of noise were present but out of phase with a low level note then it could diminish that note even though it was at a much lower level.
  6. People that seem to repeatedly post in every topic, even though they have very little to actually add. Whoops, just gone and done it myself.
  7. Point taken, title edited
  8. I believe the BBC use digital transmission between their studios and their FM transmitters. In the early days it was NICAM but does anyone know what protocol and bit rate are currently used?
  9. Peter Tyson also have 10% off the cheaper SL1500c
  10. The guy in the video has obviously done some exhaustive listening tests but what is the point of the sound samples at the end on the video, as they are practically meaningless given we are listening via our own DACs.
  11. But seriously, aren't these devices likely to generate noise from their inbuilt SMPSs and won't that find its way to the amps in your speakers?
  12. Think you may have put your finger on the problem.
  13. Ah, that could explain why ATC never bothered to reply to my email when I asked them how much power my 19As use at idle.
  14. Don't know if an adaptor is of interest to you but I used these with Naim gear and found they worked well. The main advantage being you can use them with an existing RCA interconnects cable and have the ability to change cables easily. https://shop.grahams.co.uk/products/mayware-cc121
  15. I've not experienced that issue in the UK, I've mixed and matched equipment connected and not connected to my Airlink 3KVA with no problems. It's also work noting that you can choose input & output voltages. So if you have an over generous mains voltage (e.g 250v) you could reduce to 230v.
  16. Thanks, brilliant station, could well usurp Radio Paradise in our household.
  17. Other FIP streams URLs on the resource below. Plus by using the flag icons, stations URLs by nationality can be found https://fluxradios.blogspot.com/2014/07/flux-url-fip.html
  18. URL for one of the FIP streams http://direct.fipradio.fr/live/fip-hifi.aac
  19. The reduction applies to the Hi-Res Audio Premier stream not the lower resolution MP3 stream. Think they are simply playing marketing games to gain market advantage amongst the Hi-Res competition.
  20. Just read that Qobuz have reduced their hi-res stream from £14.99 to £12.99 So perhaps the price war starts.
  21. That's probably Fourlegs issue, don't think there is an easy way of using a VPN with Innuos. That is unless some body knows differently.
  22. Jazz24 has several player option via Google search Innuos users will want the URL below Jazz24 (AAC 256K) https://live.wostreaming.net/direct/ppm-jazz24aac256-ibc1
  23. Markets forces with be the determining factor, if there is not enough demand to make it sufficiently profitable then goodbye hi-res.
