A Happy Father's Day bump for the G2G next Saturday. Newbies very welcome, drop by and meet new friends.

I have been experimenting with bass treatment and speaker positioning. Speakers are on the short (fireplace) wall now with the biggest bass traps you have ever seen in the front corners. The SBIR seems to be finally defeated, at long last.

Hey Don!
It was a small crew this time, but we had a great time. I got some good advice on acoustics and help positioning my speakers after I moved moved them to the short wall. My friend Sol Samet brought his latest I-60 amp, it blew away my ICEedge 1200AS2. I think I finally succeeded in convincing him to build me one. Good chili, good conversations. Someone brought a preamp to try, but it didn't make the cut. No pics unfortunately. Hope to see you at the next one!

This shitty opamp based piece of crap. Too bad you weren't there to get your ears ripped off.

What was it?  I'm sure you all finally enjoyed the meet without me.

Wrong. We didn't know what to think without you telling us.  :P   You were missed, obviously.

Got your system dialed in yet?

For the most part but been really busy and haven't listened in a while.  I need to take care of some firmware beta testing I'm doing so that will happen very soon

I know the feeling. That's my clue that my system ain't right. When it's right I crave listening, but it's rare.

Good luck on the testing.

Rich,

Sorry to miss the GTG, been busy with the puppy and all...and Rich, I thought you had stuff dialed in with treatments, etc...? Any new measurements that have helped your cause?

Jason looks like he is enjoying life though, and that's important too!  :thumb:

Marty...what pre, more details puhleese... :icon_lol:

My DS is gone for multiple reasons, one of them is I suspect the support will be gone/discontinued in 2 years as soon as the TSS double decker shows up and also because PS Audio is going the way of the 'dodo bird' by not supporting Roon in their latest installment of the Bridge III card while trying to reinvent the wheel with their own 'Octave' software implementation.

Best,
Anand.

Wow. So surprising. Beautiful piece though.

I guess you guys compared Vega direct and Vega + Hattor?

Should’ve thrown my silver TAPX into the mix! :wink:

Best,
Anand.

Has a 1.25db tracking error from L to R channels. Probably not set correctly at time of build.  Also the opamps are suspect so I am going to try some alternatives. Sol said it measured really well other than that.
