Glimmie I read your long post. As a short response, it has nothing to do with instrumentation. Nothing at all. And I am a frequent participant at DIYaudio. Feel free to pop on over and join the...

Think about the challenge of presenting a high input impedance without wrapping high value resistors with their Johnson noise around the op amp. It was revealing to me to learn that, for example,...

Here's another interesting observation with respect to Hypex builds, OEM or otherwise. Apparently the NC1200 module uses a rather basic input buffer design. It uses the highly commended LM4562 op...

It's interesting to see another Hypex module on the market. The NC500, more powerful than the NC400 but not as powerful as the NC1200, which allows OEMs to use their own input buffers. Hypex sell an...

Both use hardware and software. It's a question of bit depth for the computation - and when the resampling takes place. If the very first thing the CB does is to resample the incoming signal to...

I'd like to hear Theta's view on this one. Send native and let the CB do the down-res/up-res or change resolution at the 64-bit capable source device to Theta's "native resolution"? At what point...

Premium is still bottom of the pack.

192kHz sample rate content is of no use to you when everything internally in the CB is running 96kHz. Now when Theta bring the operation of the CB up to 192kHz...
