Looking for an HDMI cable
If you can make the 0.5m length work — that’s the shortest they seem to offer for this cable — then do that.  i2S was initially designed to make connections internally within a component and so wasn’t designed for distance, so that’s the reason to... 
If you have a nice system why do you really need room treatments?
I can’t even.   
Looking for an HDMI cable
This DH Labs cable gets some good feedback here and won’t break the bank.  With i2S you wanna go as short as possible as performance degrades with length.  They’re offering 10% off if you give your email.  Best of luck. https://silversonic.com/pr... 
Looking for an HDMI cable
Are you looking for new or used?  
I see the issue with ABX blind testing
  You previously stated you surmise anyone who cannot hear differences that you perceive in cables, to have compromised hearing and/or equipment; that sure seems like professing to me. I’m unclear which stance you actually hold since it couldn’t... 
Small amp or all in 1 choice?
Sounds like the SVS Prime Wireless Pro SoundBase does everything you want at a very reasonable price as long as it can run 2 pairs of speakers.  One thing I don’t quite understand though — are you planning on listening to TV through two pairs of s... 
Best USB cable upgrade for around $1000
Just curious how the Wywires Platinum USB worked out?  
How do I get a job as a headphone reviewer?
You can just contact the publisher/editor via email for sites like Soundstage, Part Time Audiophile, Stereonews.net, etc. and tell them you’re interested in reviewing headphones and a bit about your audio experience/equipment.  They’ll probably as... 
Verity Audio speaker manufacturer silent...
I was still holding out hope someone with deeper pockets and some vision would save the company and turn it around because IMHO the potential is there and is so very worth saving.  Sigh.   
Thin Line Between Critique and Courtrooms: A Dialogue on the Recent Audiophile Drama
Well, from digging into the Tekton review dispute I found that this was essentially the case with Erin’s review. @wesheadley No, it’s not the same case at all.  Not even close.  Go back and read the string of emails between Eric and Erin as app... 
ribbons vs domes and sibilance
I’d imagine, as with most things in audio, that there are tradeoffs somewhere otherwise one technology would win out and become ubiquitous, which is clearly not the case.  Speaking with a well-known, high-end amp designer, when I asked him why he ... 
I see the issue with ABX blind testing
What works for you works for you. But professing what you perceive should apply to others’ perceptions and/or use cases? Better off having some evidence. @benanders Yeah, and if a frog had wings he wouldn’t bump his ass a hoppin’. Back in the r... 
Streamer only
One thing people seem to ignore (correct me please if I am wrong) is that to use the "better" clock in your external DAC over the one in a "cheap" streamer, you must use asynchronous USB or I2S, otherwise the clock in the streamer is doing the "d... 
Should Speaker Manufactures provide a Frequency Response Graph?
Eric at Tekton Designs has been battling two different reviewers who have posted measurements without his permission, using Klippel devices for their respective measurements. So what? They posted measurements without Eric’s blessing/approval? O... 
Thin Line Between Critique and Courtrooms: A Dialogue on the Recent Audiophile Drama
No walking back those emails from Eric, and I found Erin’s responses to be perfectly reasonable and respectful. That’s just nasty behavior from Eric, and IMO he deserves all the business and reviews he loses because of it especially because he has...
