  1. Thanks for sharing this. Not to take anything away from the Oldius, but I've been searching to upsample to my RME ADI-2 DAC in nos mode, and seems like just the right ticket. Manufactured in-house products.
  2. I thought I was alone with this problem but seems not, hence I returned mine.
  3. I've never met Joolz, but seems like a nice person. RIP Joolz. Condolences to family and friends.
  4. I thought as much that a kind of computing power was needed to complete setup. I'm surprised lack of availability of upsampling hardware.
  5. Had to compress mine to 2mb. Loads of compression software online
  6. Actually why didn't think of @tuga.
  7. Could well be a case of Audiolab found a new way to filter on the cheap. I never dismiss anything till I try.
  8. Could this be the answer to HQplayer without using Mac/PC. Forgive my ignorance if there's other hardware with built-in HQplayer software. Was always looking to upsample to my RME ADI-2 in Nos mode. Edit: from further digging it seems an operating system is still needed in the chain
  9. I loved music right from when I was a teenager when my dad bought our first proper hi-fi JVC system complete with amp cassette tape player and turntable. The amp had 4 channels with big meter thingy. Still remember the first records played on the system. One track was from The Beatles other Brass Construction. I just totally fell in love with music hearing the sound come out those 4 speakers placed in four corners of the house. Seems once music awakes something inside you, you never can let go. Similar at work place so many colleagues who still talk about music production and sound systems. Many do ask for advice in the age range of say 30 to their 50s. Being I'm a train driver in london we got over 280 drivers on my line alone, so you get to meet a lot of people. During the summer this year I happened to have my windows open as you do, and my neighbour happened to hear my music and was eager to find out what I was playing. Anyway we talked a lot about music and seem to have very similar taste in music. He said he thought he heard music from time to time but could not tell where it was coming from. Cut long story short, I invited him in to have a listen and he was mesmerized. Now his hooked on hifi. His got him self a few second hand speakers and a amp and other bits and looking to upgrade soon. Yes the bug has beaten. He only turned 30 3-months ago.
  10. In that case 'accuracy' can never be achieved in the true sense of the word. The Mastering producer/engineer choice of monitors will affect the final result of the muzic material. I know you mean accurate to the finished muzic file, but absolute accuracy bears no meaningful importance to listening become its impossible to achieve.
  11. What the manufacturer says about their product may be right in most cases but that's besides the point. Everything is build to a budget. Moreover many may want to tweak sound to their liking. That's just what me thinks...
  12. Of course not all DACS have substandard preamp sections including mine (RME).. May be the word 'most' DACS would better describe the situation.
  13. There is a video from the you tuber Darko about the importance of putting a good preamp between DAC and power amp/powered speakers. Can't seem to fine the video, but if I remember correctly he did emphasise that DACS perform best as just DACS and not as preamps. He further explained that the pre amp sections of dacs do not have the dynamics and dimensionality as a dedicated preamp. From my experience I tend to agree.
  14. I experienced deep deep ( dwn to 28HZ) toneful bass in my16 ×11 feet room with Totem tribe tower speakers. Of course the tribes had weaknesses in other areas.
