  1. Hi. I was recommended a QNAP by an IT work colleague and It's done good work over the years. It's definitely a " professional " piece of kit which I use as a mirror raid although I bought it primary for file backup with audio as a secondary reason. I can't comment on Room as I've never used it. I'd certainly use QNAP again. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

    Fuse help

    The fuse will have it's rating on the cap on either end. For instance "F4A 250V"is a fast blow 4amp fuse. It's likely to be small writing and hard to read though. The type of fuse should also be printed on the amplifier's circuit board. There may of course be a fault, but sometimes fuses just give up after many years, so it's worthwhile to replace the fuse in the other channel as they are only a few pence each. Hope that helps
  3. For an unknown reason, the playlist isn't visible even though I made it public. Their servers must be a little slow...
  4. Guys, Even though you can't hear my system, you can hear my music choice music. Its on Qobuz, playlist name Kegworth March 2020. Enjoy!
  5. A very brave but sad decision, so well done all who were involved in the decision making to postpone it. I'm sure everyone was looking forward to a weekend of music, catching up and general fun but there's bigger things in life. I was looking forward to showing off all the tweaks that I've done to my system, at least I haven't boxed up the Quads yet! Hope to catch up with you all again later in the year when we are all in a better and safer place. Take care everyone and remember to always use 60% alcohol.
  6. Best of luck- I do hope that you get the poorly 989 running. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks; I've seen that kit and it looks impressive but I'll see what I can do with the Behringer before I start looking for something else. Thanks for the suggestion. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  8. I was talking about transistor amplifiers, I don't have experience of valve amps. Its fair comment from others about connecting a dummy load before measuring anything. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  9. Either output connector should measure 0 volts or at worse a few mV with no signal on the input. Definitely some component is faulty and luckily you've found out before your speakers have been damaged. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  10. I always use video cable which is always made to be 75 ohms, is cheap and easily handles HD digital video at over 1Gbs speed. Optical cable has to have a copper to optical and optical to copper interfaces on every interface which may cause errors. An accurate 75 ohm termination on input and output will cause minimal reflections; the reflected signal will be far below what could be misread as a "1". Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  11. That's such bad luck. Sorry to hear that. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  12. Mine had an HDMI imput but I don't think rca was there as well Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
  13. I agree that cheap ones don't work on long runs. There was no usable output using a 5 metre cheap fibre, but a more expensive one was fine. I think that the very cheap ones are plastic rather than glass. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  15. I was very impressed by the Naim/ Focal massively sized and massive £££££ Statement system but felt it was a little too loud/ louder than it would be in real life but a reference when visiting the other rooms. Many nice sounding rooms but I did like the Rogers LS5/9s. Definitely a speaker that you could live with; I know the term " musical " is overused, but that is a good description. The usual sound spill from other rooms was a bit of a problem as well as excessive boom from the small hotel rooms used for most of the demos. The adaptive eq system was demo'd by Linn which works well imo- not a new product but a definite acoustic improvement. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk
