Vibration Control
In General solid state circuits are not effected by acoustic vibration. The exception is in cheeper ceramic capacitors they can be effected by hi frequency vibration and the dielectric layers separate.  One of the highest vibration environments w...

@nonoise  I used the very best professional recording equipment at the time including Nagra, Fostex, and Zaxcom, I've spent millions on sound equipment for location recording. Only the Zaxcom recorders were solid state they were the first  company...

@nonoise  I do have some experience putting high end recorders and microphones in violently shaking environments in my recording career. When you put a recorder that is solid state with no moving parts you don't have to worry about vibration. In t... 
Active Speakers Don't Sound Better
I started a post about this subject and there were over 69k comments people know active and powered speakers are better in so many ways. powered speakers have amps in them  active speakers can be connected to external crossovers and amps passiv...

@pynkfloydd  I thought exactly the same thing having a little DAC around is a great utility I think I’ll eventually put it into my video editing system until I find my tube DAC. I connected the Harmony DAC to ch 1 (I2S ) and my PSA MK 2 (AES) to...

@tweak1  I believe they have a preamp on the way. The design is compartmentalized better for internal RF interference like separates in one box. If their preamp is as good as the DAC this company could really be interesting, I could spend a lot le...

@smweber2  Thanks for the kind words. I. moved out my PS Audio direct stream DAC MK 2 and for that matter I moved out all my BHK PS Audio equipment. I really just didn’t like the noise, the PS A BHK equipment sounded wonderful and extra tube like...

I moved out my PS Audio direct stream DAC MK 2 and for that matter I moved out all my BHK PS Audo equipment. I really just didn’t like the noise, the PS A BHK equipment sounded wonderful and extra tube like and buttery but it’s just noisy. The Har...

Just listened to the Harmony DAC and I’m really happy it’s very quiet and sounds surprisingly good. For now it’s replacing my $9k DAC. Amazing.  
Double up on speaker cables
Cables don't make any sound they can only hinder frequencies so when you put them together you will only get the negative effects from both cables. It's not that one cable is airy it's that that cable has poor response everywhere else. Your speake... 
why expensive streamers
I feel like there needs to be some consequences when audiophile companies rip off rich people and the hobby they love.      
why expensive streamers
@siox //Audio (even hi-res) has so little information content relative to the mega and giga bit communication and processing speeds (bandwidth, BW)// Doesn't that mean the audio signal is simple comparatively? The audio signal is simple the frequ...

@soix  You are right to understand that audio is a simple signal for electronics. Look at even simple video is a much more complex signal, a few dozen years ago some manufactures put video parts into audio equipment and the specs went up exponenti... 
Reel to Reel
R to R gets better every year. Look at the S/N ratio or A waited S/N either way they are really poor compared to digital. There is a whole host of problems bias, closed heads, dirty arms, magnetized heads, can't get tape, dirty tape, the wrong tap...
