But you COULD connect via BLU-Net to the Crown DCI4 running pass through :green:
:lol:


That defeats the whole purpose!   :duh:


I'm going to try to finish the output wiring on Wednesday and try each channel to make sure it's all working.

If we haven't figured out Jason by now, this is a man of less complexity, more simplicity, less drama and more music  :thumb:

Best  :wink:

Here’s one screen shot of HiQnet London Architect 6.0. I’ll post more once I get it all working.

Yes, two Mark Levinson 532s



ML532 being Mark Levinson 532 amplifier?

Thanks,

The big advantage of BLU-50 is fanless and possibility of battery power.

Very nice!  The BLU 50 doesn’t have CobraNet so I won’t be able to try that which is fine.

Fanless is exactly why I bought it, but I still had to dim all those flashing LEDs :thumb:

Finally got my amps for my setup to go along with the BSS.  Look forward to getting them all put together soon.   :D

After some amp testing and swapping I've settled on four channels of the Hypex NCore NC502MP.  Absolutely stellar!

So you're using Ncore setup like the Crown, through DSP?

I’m using the BSS BLU 50 loaded with the M2 tuning and the amps from that.  Make sense?

Jason I was under the impression you had settled on the AS1200 amps, looks like the Hypex kicked the Crown and AS1200 to the curb??

Yes, exactly how I imagined.

That's interesting to note the sound is so good with another amp(s).

Well, I did until I tried the Hypex NC502MP amps!  The Crown is a great amp, however, it's not a secret that it has fans and they're noisy.  I don't have a separate space for the Crown so going fan-less was inevitable.  Also, I didn't see me having that space for a few years if ever with my changed lifestyle. 


Probably should add the chain:

Motorola Modem sb6141> Emo Systems EN-70HD > (5) eero > Synology 1813+ (DSM 6.1), 4TB Seagate NAS Drives, 4GB RAM & Zero Surge & APC XS BX1000G/backup to Synology DX513) > Emo Systems EN-60KDS  > Roon > PS Audio DirectStream with Bridge II > BSS BLU 50 > (2) Hypex NCore NC502MP > JBLM2 Master Reference

Is it really though?  The tuning for the speaker is identical and according to BSS the BLU 50 does have more HP than the Crown so there's no loss there.  As for the amp, the Hypex is a properly designed piece with plenty of power for my room so I'm not shocked there either.
