Do you live in the OP's home?
No, but I have used the IDA-8 in multiple locations that have different quality power, with and without conditioners, with a variety of different speakers and even headphones directly off the binding posts. I also have similar experiences with other NuPrime and NuForce equipment. So when I say that I am confident in my assertions, it is backed up with a very diverse range of experiences and gear.
Perhaps your experiences lead you to say otherwise, but there is no need for a veiled condescending tone towards me.
Some equipment simply has an inherent noise floor, and no amount of special power conditioning will ever remove that.
BTW. my FAVORITE topic is why two channel sucks compared to immersive audio, please visit that thread to discuss. Thanks
No thanks. I have no desire to get into those sort of debates.
As a side note, did you know you can multiquote in a single post? I've noticed you tend to make multiple replies to single quotes, which can make things difficult to read and follow. Using multiquotes can help keep things more concise.
