Check out my website for reviews of products I have completed instead (hit the review tag, and separate tags). **2 MORE ADVICE : If you are asking me how does X product compare to Y that I HAVE reviewed, or how does something sound beyond comment in videos, or system advice, I’m asking my viewers to donate to my project. The sum isn’t really too important at the moment, it is more the principle, since it shows viewers value my independence. If viewers want opinions and advice, where you benefit from this, I think it is fair to ask for contributions where my time is taken away from reviews. Also I can't answer all questions on YT anyway. I am happy to engage and answer other product related questions on YouTube where appropriate and of course, engage with my audience **3 ABUSE POLICY : I encourage and like debate, but people who abuse or troll me, or others, post very negative and non constructive and uncorroborated comments designed to put me or others down (where they don't explain themselves), or they could be perceived as such, as well as aggressive comments / hate and so on, or pit my subscribers against me, get their comments removed and I hide them from commenting again. I don’t need the hassle of such people and this channel is not for you. If you want to post constructive criticism then expect it to be accepted sometimes, but challenged on other occasions, and if you don’t have the intelligence to understand this or debate, and get personal by giving put downs, then you are not welcome here too.

This amp uses two Pascal modules for each channel 2) "Balanced" refers to amplifiers which generally utilise 3-pin XLR plug connections, in this case with the pre amplifier input. The Balanced topology has an extra cable with in phase and out of phase hot wires, which cancel the noise between components when the phase flips back. It offers a slight improvement in sound to RCA plugs which only have one hot (signal carrying wire) such that if both components are balanced, sound quality is improved. 3) "Class D" - In lay terms a class A or AB amp has an output stage which is always on. With class D there are pulses at the output stage of the amp which tends to me cooler running and greater energy efficiency **Please don't ask me how a product compares to another which I haven't reviewed, as it isn't possible to comment on such products I haven't tested.

Album Recommendation : Hookworms Microshift (2018)

Music in the video from the Album Microshift by British Neo-Psychedelic group Hookworms, recorded live at Bluedot Festival 2018. Initial sequence edited by me (Simon Price), remaining clip from a Hookworms video (fair use clip) The Resident music album is here : https://www.resident-music.com/prod... Resident Review : "messing with our heads in the best possible way, the Leeds band's 3rd full-length marks anything but a "micro" shift - this is a seismic shift in their sound, dynamic, songwriting & production - but one that seriously kicks ass & delivers a euphoric catharsis" "with all the ferocious energy, intricate musicianship & bruised but beautiful song-craft of the previous releases, the album is formed out of loops, modular synthesizer sequences, drum machines & homemade samples, which were jammed around & layered until the songs began to emerge. coming out of the blocks with 'negative space', a spectacular arcade fire-esque builder that tells us mj & co are ready to go for it in a big way this time, this is a radiant & immersive record, teeming with light but still heavy & forceful. mining the legacy of brit-pop, with a bubbling spiritualized & primal scream undercurrent, it's all rooted with that reliable motorik beat throughout. a tour de force for fans of everyone from LCD Soundsystem to neu! to Supergrass."

13th Note DAC Index (in 35 seconds)

#DACs #audiophile #hifi An Index of the best ten sounding stand alone DACs I have reviewed at price (some of which compete above their price). I've considered all they do, not necessarily my own sound quality preference, but where they do more (in sound terms) for the money. **This is my assessment and not everyone will agree. I have not rated them on other features as some do pre-amp duties and have other functionality too etc. This index is based solely on SQ. The Best value DAC is easily the RME ADI-2 DAC FS, then probably followed by the Denafrips Venus II, an R2R ladder DAC. The RME appraisal is here : https://www.13thnote.net/2020/02/20...

Album Recommendation - Dame Shirley Bassey - The Performance (2009)

A quick overview of this album and why it is recommended. HiFi is a means to an end of music, not the other way around. Despite this I find it odd that HiFi reviews hardly ever make music recommendations. I deliberately picked this album unpretentiously because I think it will appeal to lots. A great album over Xmas too! Music Credit : Saib - Spring Waltz - by Chillhop https://chillhop.bandcamp.com/track... Video Credit : snips taken from BBC Electric Proms (Roundhouse London)

KEF LSX Mozart Intro - Piano Concerto No 21 (Elvira Madigan)

#kef #keflsx #mozart I did this shameless Mozart/kef intro when I produced my LSX review a while back, but the music I used is Mozart so I thought who cares, even if I’ve shown it before - make the video public. Hifi is about music after all! This is Mozart’s piano concerto no21, the “Elvira Madigan” tagged after the film. The film I used as the backdrop is the excellent Amadeus, which if you haven’t seen I can wholeheartedly recommend. One of the best music inspired films you can see. Currently working on some 3D graphics for the new LS50 meta speakers from KEF. A review to come as well as a DAC to challenge the Chord Hugo TT2. Watch this space. Hopefully both before Xmas. https://www.13thnote.net Review on website here https://www.13thnote.net/2020/04/09... RIP Sir Terry Conran.
