It is, for instance, now possible to work with multiple loudspeaker setups like 5.1, Dolby Atmos, or Auro 3D simply by using a single Ethernet router to distribute audio material among several devices or, as in our case, several Hedd studio monitors. Marantz you could fit reclocker from totaldac .

  10. Covers with water damage make your own old school tip on jackets search online for artwork , resize to suit & print off plain record card jacket with no centre cut out & paste artwork on jacket What is a Tip-On Record Jacket? A tip-on record jacket involves printing the cover art on sheets of paper, then gluing those sheets to the board stock. The "tip" part of the name comes from how the paper was applied to the underlying board. By contrast, the direct-to-board method of printing directly onto the board stock is the current norm. Tip-on jacket suppliers don't all achieve the tip-on effect in precisely the same way. A major issue with the tip-on jackets from the 70s was they weren't of the highest quality, and hard to keep in good condition. Our classic old-style record jacket packaging maintains the authentic look but uses paper wraps laminated onto heavy board shell.
