[The reviews from many of the over 2,500 people worldwide now using a REGEN are filled with excitement over how musically effective the device is. Drop in on some thoughtful ones here at ComputerAudiophile.com: USB REGEN Listening Impressions.] The USB REGEN takes the digital audio stream from your computer or other music streaming device, and generates a completely new USB data signal to feed to your DAC. It accomplishes this by combining a carefully chosen USB hub chip with an ultra low-noise regulator and low-jitter clock.

Shavano Music Online - Speaker SPL - How much power do you need?

No, you really want more SPL. Your speaker choices make huge difference in the way your amplifier uses its power. Amplifier FAQ. Amplifier FAQ * How much power do I need?

Amplifier FAQ

A typical speaker might produce 85 to 90 dB SPL at one meter from the speaker with one watt of power ( as supplied by an amplifier.) As 85 to 90 dB is loud, I hope it's obvious it takes very little power to get subjectively loud sound. As you increase volume, power needs will rapdily increase. You may have heard that you need to double power for each 3 dB increase in SPL. Summarizing, you need very little power to get a loud music or movie, but as you increase volume you very quickly run out of power.

Speaker sensitivity, as mentioned above can be quite helpful in being able to play your system more loudly. In open space, for each doubling of distance away from a speaker, SPL will drop by 6 dB DPL.

Schiit Audio, Headphone amps and DACs made in USA. Articles and Papers On Hi-Fi. Audio Paper - How to choose the right preamp. Oct 2004 by Steve Deckert I’ve had many phone calls from potential customers having troubles trying to decide which preamp they should buy.

Audio Paper - How to choose the right preamp

It occurred to me that with 3 preamps of our own, this would be an ongoing question as more and more people find themselves in this position of choosing. First let me say that the goal with the addition of any preamp is to achieve synergy between your source(s) and amplifier(s). Any time you have an opportunity to audition several preamps in your system, it goes without saying the one will usually sound and work better then the others. The reason one sounds better generally has a lot less to do with price and more to do with the circuit design of that preamp. To select an ideal preamp you must know two things: The output voltage of your source (most stock CD players are 2 volts)The input sensitivity of your amplifier (most amplifiers are around 1 volt) Lets look at these two terms so we understand exactly what they are.

Class-A stereo power amplifier which adopted the chassis made from die-casting as the radiator made from die-casting. The Class-A operation is adopted as a whole page. The Class-A operation sends many idle currents through the transistor also in the time of a non-signal, and is a scheme which uses only operating range with the sufficient linearity of a transistor. Although a Class-A operation has a low electrical-power utilization factor and calorific value also increases, in order that the upper and lower sides may be amplified by the same wave and may obtain a synthetic output, with B class amplifier, switching distortion or crossover distortion which are not avoided do not generate two transistors of a push pull.

Yaqin SD-CD3 Tube Buffer - upgrading caps Hello All, Just had the lid off and take a fancy at replacing the caps: 4x 0.47u 275v 2x 0.22u 275v Would like to replace them with ClarityCap ESAs, but they don't seem to make any to the same exact spec.

Their 0.22u's are 630v and the 0.47u's are available in 250v and 630v. Does this matter if they are not an exact match on the voltage ?
