USB DAC cable over 15ft - Solutions?
Corning Optical USB. I use a 10m version, the shortest one. 😊 @kr4 yes that was my first thought! Unfortunately, Corning no longer seems to make or sell these and, as I indicated in my original post, I’m reluctant to try a used one, even if I c... 
USB DAC cable over 15ft - Solutions?
Use something like this at one end: mike_in_nchttps://www.amazon.com/Herfair-Adapter-Printer-Converter-Connector/dp/B0BYJJRF4L Thanks, @mike_in_nc .  This looks like what I'd need if I used an optical cable (or similar) with two male A ends? ... 
USB DAC cable over 15ft - Solutions?
Have you considered getting a dedicated streamer instead of using a PC? You could then put a Wi-Fi extender or Mesh node close to your system and run an Ethernet cable from that to the streamer and a much shorter USB cable to your DAC. No long ca... 
Q. re Gemme Tanto Tweeter Replacements
Regarding attempting to buy the tweeters through allicdata, my purchase seems to be in some kind of limbo.  The sight is a bit strange in that you create an order, and they are supposed to get back to you with a quote.  Although the amount for the... 
Q. re Gemme Tanto Tweeter Replacements
Either the music and/or the room was off in the demos I found (one video showed a wall of glass close to and directly behind the speakers). I tend to agree - for the Tantos but also for a lot of other audio gear. Online reviews of your speake... 
Q. re Gemme Tanto Tweeter Replacements
After reading multiple reviews of the Tanto V1 I tried to find a good sound demo, but only found bad ones. I'm not sure what you mean by a sound demo?  Do you mean in-store, at a show, or online?  I tend to think it's very difficult to find any... 
Q. re Gemme Tanto Tweeter Replacements
DeKay, thanks for the great explanation!  I generally like the sound of the Tantos and have always believed that a large reason for their clarity is due to the lack of a crossover.  I have no real experience in speaker design, though, so that has ... 
Q. re Gemme Tanto Tweeter Replacements
I just looked at the sensitivity spec of around 85dB @ 4 ohms. The low spec # is how the designer padded it down. Hi DeKay.  What do you mean by "padded it down"?  Sorry if this is a nooby question.  
Q. re Gemme Tanto Tweeter Replacements
@dekay, apologies, that does look like the correct replacement.  Not sure about shipping from HK to US (or how reliable/trustworthy they are), but it may be something to look into so thanks for the link. I'm still interested, however, in hearing ... 
Q. re Gemme Tanto Tweeter Replacements
Thanks for the replies.  Though I wasn't able to find an exact replacement at allicdata.com - or anywhere else - Madisound may have a suitable replacement.  I was hoping, however, that there may be some forum members who have actual experience wit... 
Linlai E 6sn7 tubes
Thanks, @danmar123, I appreciate your response! It would be interesting to hear any other feedback on the Linlai Global Es - especially comparisons with other tubes - and perhaps including thoughts on the bass region.    
Linlai E 6sn7 tubes
@danmar123, thanks very much for reporting back. Can you describe any specific characteristics regarding the Linlai Globals in comparison to your other tubes? I realize everyone’s system and ears are different, but it may be helpful to know what a...

@danmar123, apologies, I'm not sure which post you mean.  
Linlai E 6sn7 tubes
Thanks, @lowrider57!  Please let us know if you hear back.  This may make sense based on the info from @pindac on the last page. The Linlai Global website includes the following phrase describing the Global series:   ...without exaggerating... 
Linlai E 6sn7 tubes
I tried both the Linlai E-6sn7 and their less expensive Global Hi-Fi 6sn7 in my amps. I prefer the sound of the Global Hi-Fi version. The bass is better on that one and the overall tonal balance seemed to be more neutral. The E-6sn7's seemed to a...
