It does need a high res system, yet it is clearly audible and you can even hear differences between storage media....don't ask how and why.
I keep my files as FLAC and load them into memory, effectively uncompressing them prior to playing.
what is the sensitivity of the Altec, is it the 97 I read somewhere?
We played the Euronor Junior (see picture above) that has similare SPL (around 98 I reckon) with a 1.5 W tube amp to levels that overloaded a room roughly 10 meter wide by 15 meters deep and 3m high.
a regular NVME is not made to accept external power, like this femto NVME card (has a 5.2mm Jack connector and toggle switch to select external or internal power).
There are PCIe cards with a Molex connector for external power, not sure if they exist for M2 slots...lon time ago I found a...
Yeah I noticed. Using infinite baffles allows me to think out of the box ;-)
So currently I have three 13"fullrange units with a tweeter @7-8Khz, and do not aim to have any filtering in critical frequencies, so 2 GOOD 15"units and a tweeter is far more likely for me. IME large fullrange speaker...
I was referring to the Supravox 215 FC that was mentioned, I'd need a boatload of those to arrive at the same surface area. IMO you can only replace surface area by more surface area. Without doing the math, at which I'm terrible, I know the design would become inefficient...perhaps in the a...
Even closer there is more info ; https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/speaker-oasis-bionor.18570/page-21
I'm building a speaker based on that design, now with three 13"full range units and I recognize the descriptions.
I have listened to a few autoformers LDRs etc, and concluded that the Khozmo shunt (1 naked Z foil resistor in the direct signal path) resistor ladder stepped attanuator sounded better in my application, YMMV
There actually is a guy building WE horns in France using the oak from the same forest in the US where WE sourced theirs.
Great chef knives are still being made, there are plenty craftsmen continuing and advancing the art of forging steel, the problem there is the same as with audio, or coffee etc; the general public has grown accustomed to the cheap crap and medicocre rubbish sold by large corporations making the...
