Forgive me if I missed it but has there been any update on ATI's deployment of Hypex NC500-based amps?

To put this more broadly, for best quality the MQA decoder needs to "know the DAC" which means a customised-to-DAC hardware solution will always be best.

It's hardly surprising that Roon is an early adopter given their background with Meridian's Sooloos. I'd expect faster adoption from software decoding (e.g. Soon, Auralic, JRiver) than full hardware...

You can still edit the $64000 in the 7th line.

You mean Sooloos.

The two device thing isn't new nor only for Roon. I still don't buy it however.

Nah, I'm done with CA. Too many people...

$64k. I think I'd prefer to get a new car. I presume a typo.

Even at $640 you can do this with a Raspberry Pi for next to no money at all. However, I don't see the logic/fundamental explanation...

Ha! The standby blue LED on my FPB 200 has faded so much as to almost not be visible. Time for an upgrade!

(While we jest, LEDs of different colours do have different noise characteristics...)

Better to set the level of the sub at the crossover frequency rather than with noise.

Use the AIX disc you received with the Dirac Live mic etc. You just need a source to play the same noise signal level in each channel. The disc makes this easy.

If merely level balancing then it doesn't really matter at what level or source/noise generator you use. You just want them to be the same. Use a level around your typical...

I'm not confused, but you are. I don't think you understand how Dirac Live works. One uses, to adopt your terms, 'room correction' to approach a 'target curve'. Setting the target curve is easy...
