Products_sphinx.htm Dynamic, transparent, and profoundly musical, the Rogue Sphinx sets a new standard in affordable integrated amplifiers. Utilizing sophisticated circuitry borrowed from our most advanced designs, the Sphinx is able to outperform separates costing far more than this single box design. And with 100 watts of hybrid power, this integrated is capable of realistic volume levels that will rival the clarity and presence of the original performance. The Sphinx contains a discrete headphone amplifier and an excellent phono section compatable with high output MM and MC cartridges. Active and fixed outputs allow for the addition of a subwoofer or other outboard devices. A high capacity linear power supply provides tremendous energy storage to recreate the deepest bass passages while various regulated power supply stages provide ultra smooth sound in the midrange and treble.

Vinyl + Cocktails Rogue Audio Sphinx integrated amplifier Once, on a cold, dank, soundless day deep in the Eastern bloc, I watched a man spend over a million dollars on an audio system: a turntable, a fancy horn tweeter, a few wires, and some amplification for his modified Klipschorns. I asked him what he did for a living, and he told me he was a notary public. Everyone there smirked and watched as he excitedly put the tonearm down on the first record, AC/DC's Back in Black. He laughed, he danced, he didn't sit down. I thought, Does this man really need all this expensive gear to get that bouncy? That notary public came to mind while I was removing my venerable Creek 4330 integrated amplifier and hooking up the new Rogue Audio Sphinx. The Sphinx costs almost 700 times less ($1295) than the amplification in that million-dollar system. Just before the Sphinx arrived, I was lost in a mad and unusually deep exploration of solo-piano music and what I erroneously call High French Modernism. I just stood there.

More than just a disc spinner: OPPO Digital's UDP-203 | DAR__KO The universal. 4K Ultra HD; UHD Blu-Ray. 3840 x 2160 pixels; High Dynamic Range (HDR10); Wide colour gamut; Dolby Vision (via firmware upgrade) – such image-focussed specifications, landing as features of OPPO Digital’s all new UDP-203 player, remain beyond DAR’s purview – the A is for Audio. 2016’s long awaited update to the Chinese-Californian company’s supremely popular BDP-103 player comes loaded with digital audio fortitude. The UDP-203 is a Blu-Ray Audio player, a DVD-Audio player, an SACD player and a CD player. Internal D/A conversion for each of the unit’s analogue output channels comes courtesy of AKM. That’s a departure from the BDP-103’s use of Cirrus Logic silicon. So much for the ‘analogue sunset’. But that’s not all. On the lossless file format front, the UDP-203 will decode AIFF, WAV, ALAC, APE and FLAC. End users wanting to run the UDP-203 as a disc transport only can connect an existing external DAC to the rear panel’s TOSLINK or coaxial outputs. OPPO DigitalUDP-203

Vinyl Records | Vinyl Record Albums | Vinyl LP Records - SoundStage Direct aywwts4 comments on My attempt at creating a guide to Vinyl to answer common questions. Speaker Placement There could be undreamed of performance lurking within your system, just waiting to be tapped! What's that you say, better sound than I have now? Most likely, yes. While some of you have been fastidious in your approach to speaker placement, the plain truth is that most of us do not know how (or do not take the time) to properly position our loudspeakers. I hope to help alleviate this situation with the information that follows. To preface, let me say that an article on "correct" speaker placement may be impossible to write. The home environment presents a multitude of problems/considerations in choosing a location for our speakers. To better understand the terminology and the reasoning behind the recommendations, let us first explore a few basics of acoustic theory. The Room room affects the sound of a speaker by the reflections it causes. In any listening environment, what we hear is a result of a mixture of both the direct and reflected sounds. On to specifics. Listening Height.
