Esoteric N-05XD opinions please
Old thread but I have an N-05XD and have questions for other owners. I first used the N-05XD with a dedicated music server I have (high-end custom build) that runs Roon.  It didn't sound great.  I never knew how limited it was until I turned off ...

Anyone else's experiences with Space Tech Labs?
I bought a Super-Rectifier from Space Tech.  I'm using it with an $8K custom-built DHT preamp.  I'm pleased with it.  Albert has been very easy and fair to deal with.  He's very responsive to questions if you need help, and the product works as ad... 
LessLoss Firewall for Loudspeakers
I got mine today.  I bought them used from Audiomart.  They're hooked up to a pair of Line Magnetic speakers.  My initial impression is they are just so/so right now.  The seller tells me they are fully broken in but I don't think they have been u... 
LessLoss Firewall for Loudspeakers
I will also say that this is my 2nd purchase (Aqua LaVoce S3 was the first) from Atelier 13 since last October and have found Constantin a pleasure to deal with. Don't want to take this OT.  I bought a demo pair of Tri-Art Open speakers from Co... 
High Fidelity Cables?
I’m curious if customers ended up getting the product they paid for. Unfortunately there is a long history of small audio manufacturers taking orders they know they could not possibly deliver for one reason or another (usually bankruptcy). I’m not... 
Otomon Labs. Soundgate Japan
His work is very beautiful and the amps look very cool.  I am interested in trying one, a SE with maybe an 808, 2A3 or 211 but just about everything I see is 100V.  I won't use a transformer because they all sound so bad to defeats the purpose of ... 
Oppo Sonica Damaged Firmware? - USB ports Dead - HELP!
That could be it.  Both failed within 3 weeks of me buying it second hand.  Hate when that happens.  No solutions online I could find. 
Synergistic Research Atmosphere XL4 no longer works with Apply software update?
I had the same issue last year when my ipad updated to iOS 12.  The fault is NOT with SR.  Apple changed the way bluetooth connectivity works without bothering to tell anyone.  I have an Atmosphere XL4 and had the same opportunity to return it for... 
Tempo Electric speaker cables
Good morning Nonoise.  I respect your ears and had a quick question.I just bought a pair of Tonian 12.1 S for a secondary system.  The speaker cable I'm using now is (home made 12ga vintage Western Electric) just OK.  I'm intrigued by your comme... 
Who makes good quality bananas ?
Yeah, right here.  I just replaced Audioquest bananas with Eichmann sawtooth bananas I bought from VH Audio.  I like them more than the Eichmann bayonets and they are way better than the AQ bananas.Props to Chris at https://www.vhaudio.com/ for qu... 
Experience with Zesto Andros Allasso SUT?
I have it and I love.  It's a great unit backed by a terrific company.  I bought mine 2nd hand and had a hum issue so I called them.  I spoke directly to owner/designer George Counnas who talked me through it.  Turns out I had the unit to close ... 
Looking for Room Measurement / Speaker Setup Software
I am trying to find the best location for my speakers.  Tuning by ear has been effective but I still like to see what the frequency response looks like.  I also have a lot of diffusion/absorption products I can use to tune so I'd like to see their... 
Looking for Room Measurement / Speaker Setup Software
Thanks.  The mic I get, what am I connecting the RCA cables to?  I assumed the software will read the levels/freq data the mic 'hears' and generate a graph of room response.I am going to order this.Ian 
Looking for Room Measurement / Speaker Setup Software
Imhififan, Does the REW software contain the necessary test tones or do I get those somewhere else?  Thanks.Ian
