FIOS is not available in Boston, as it's not wired for FIOS. FIOS here in MASS is part of Verizon. DirecTV is part of ATT. So maybe in SoCal it's different but here in Mass FIOS refers to Verizon. I...

I have used a 12 footer with no problem. It is a standard USB cable (make sure it is high speed) that you can buy at Monoprice, Amazon and probably Bestbuy.

Thanks. I'll try it out. Of course, I don't think JRiver offers any streaming services, which is one thing that makes Audirvana+ great with Tidal integration, but I also have a Sonos, so I can use...

Example: utilizing a U-DAC8 with a 5.1 hi res signal from a computer and then sending the analog outs to the pre-pro 7.1 ins. Normally they would not be bass managed in this configuration.

One benefit of having bass management within the 88A: the 7.1 analog input on a pre-pro or receiver would be bass managed.

Re-calibrated, but what's the difference?

OK. So I re-calibrated last night (everyone knew I would) using your method and got back to about 78db at 0. Close enough. With the 88A tone, the measurement tends to bounce around, particularly on...

Jerry,

Honestly, I'm okay cruising at 85. I've already recalibrated my brain. Old habits die hard, but you can teach an old dog new tricks. :)

Thanks,

I reset the Genelecs to full up, and set max volume on my Yamaha to -5. Reference is now -10, so I just need to recalibrate my brain. Repeat after me, reference is now -10.

I like to know "reference" is calibrated at 0 db. Is this silly? Likewise, the Genelecs are slightly noisier when full up using the balanced outs.

Hiss is not a problem. The speakers are silent at any volume setting other than some self generated hiss I can hear with my ear one inch from the transducers.
