      Has anyone here tried running either their HP rig or speaker rig off a portable power station, like a Jackery or something?

        Only done this with FullaE, which is fed from iFi Zen Stream. Not exactly a "rig" but it works well to make the setup semi-portable.

        To my mind, unless you have a huge collection of used LPs that need cleaning, something like the Degritter is proportionally too pricy. The Humminguru or similar generic tank and spinner will achieve similar results for much less $$.

        The Degritter is a huge and heavy box (like 50lbs), it'll be roughly $200 to ship it halfway across the country, let alone insured and coast to coast.

      Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but using roon, every time i try upsampling outside of Yggdrasil, it just doesn't sound right.

        If you don't like others recommendations, better to start with a hqfilter that replicates the one built into Yggdrasil, and tweak from there.

        With HQ Player, I've found that filter and modulator/dither combinations are really rate, system, interface, taste dependent and there's tradeoffs (stage depth vs treble behavior vs timbre etc). Schiit MB stuff sounds better on its own - occasionally working with MSYNC or XTR LP with NS9 for AES at 192 is good. The 2541, Denafrips Ares, RME, Holo Audio are often better with HQ player upresing.

        All my upsampling right now is hardware-forced (CXN), but now I’m curious what Roon would do to that data before sending it along. Sounds like an experiment for me this week.

        move it around on the headshell and tonality goes from good and adding some detail to muddy and incomprehensible. we're talking like 1mm fore or aft; too fussy.

        If i might add, a habit I need to make more of a habit: jump on loaners even if you have no need for that particular piece of gear in your chain. hear gear and provide feedback, not audition gear is the spirit of the loaner program.

        Seller was acting kind of dickish. Either way, i'd have to hear them in my room to tell if they're a 4x improvement over my current AN's (which use the same woofer and tweeter, just not as tightly matched and in a different cabinet with cheapo x-over) to excuse the price. At some point i suppose I could just build some AN-E cabs or try to track down some Snells as donors and build a balls out AN-E x-over.

        Instead, I'm probably blowing cash on APR Stage 3 turbo, IE intercooler, and upgraded clutch. 400WHP (with no fueling upgrades!) in a 3100lb car is going to be a riot. A low 11s 60-130 would be nuts.

        All the price hikes got me off the gear treadmill really quick. I'm probably buying a Mani-2, but otherwise I'm pretty comfortable with my mid-fi life. Putting that money into buying music and movies instead.

        @crazychile I wouldn't say I'm sane, I just like to try things from the nut job fringe in the cheapest way possible. This was not one of those things, so I really can't recommend it. Too many confounding variables to suggest anything. I'm more just shocked that a fucking fuse that I expected to do almost nothing (bias!) did as much as it did. So far It ain't "good" it's just a lot. Heavy commissions of something.

        ALL OF THEM. but seriously, Human, Emergence, and One Hundred Billion Sparks are essentially cannon. BUT!!! definitely check out his 3D Reworks EP, it's not exactly binaural since it's not recorded using a binaural mic head, it's binaural output from a piece of software he's been playing with for many years now. From what I understand, the 3D EP was proof of concept.

        I love that he's seriously invested in the technical aspect of music making, but more importantly, he's using music to explore concepts where science lacks meaning. He's not "hand waving about" and using fancy scientific terms like word salad, he knows where scientific concepts are not well understood, and tries to use music to provide a toe-hold.
