Hi-Fi 4 Sale 2nd Gathering @ Hi-Way Laser, SS2 PJ on Sat, 10 Oct 2009 - Please Vote!

Post by Hi-Fi 4 Sale on Fri Sep 04, 2009 5:43 pm

Hi all,
Thinking of doing a 2nd Hi-Fi 4 Sale gathering. Rather than doing one just for the sake of meeting up, maybe it would be good to start 1 or 2 topics for knowledge sharing. Off-hand, 2 topics come to mind:
1. DIY audio
2. PC or network media playback

It's also just past Hari Raya, so perhaps the mood is pretty good for one as well.

Looking for suitable members to organise and host the abovementioned topics. If you have other interesting ideas, let us know.

Please vote for a suitable date & attendance. It's a multiple-choice poll, so you may select more than one date. Very Happy

Your feedback is welcome.

Hi Admin and fellow forumers,

I hope i can make it on 3rd October 2009.

I wish to share and to setup network media player (Squeezebox Classic) with iMac, external DAC, Ethernet router.

If you have any external DACs, please bring them for comparison testing. We also can take opportunity to compare CD player and network media player via uncompressed audio format or lossless format.

I hope it will be an interesting and fruitful meet up.

Auronthas

The vote count is pretty low at the moment. Does that mean that not many people are interested in coming at this time or are busy ...should we postpone it for later, perhaps end-Oct or early Nov?

Wabun,
You are most welcome to demo the JumPan2.

Guys,

Looks like with the SVS launch on 3rd Oct, among other things, it's best we have the gathering on Sat, 10 October 2009. Venue should be Hi-Way Laser, SS2 PJ, from 2pm-7pm. It's the best time to find parking there.

To make it easier this time, if you have anything to bring/sell on that day, please reply to this thread. It will function as a pre-alert to what will be available for fellow enthusiasts so that they can plan for their budgets in advance!

The same goes if you are selling Blu-ray or DVD movies.

We'll have 2 presentation slots on that day:
1. 2:30pm - 3:30pm JumPan2 preamp by wabun. Thx for making the trip all the way from Ipoh, bro.
2. 4:00pm - 5:00pm Network media player/Media server by auronthas.


For the Network media player demo, I'm quite sure auronthas can supply the Cambridge Audio DacMagic. We can use the Logitech Squeezebox, Apple Airport Express & PC/notebook as a source.

The rest of the time, we can go teh tarik.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to demonstrate network media player (Squeezebox) in the forth coming HiFi gathering.

I wish i can get the NMP setup without much difficulty.

I would choose one CD album, say Jennifer Warnes - The Hunter and rip it during this weekend in various music formats, namely AIFF, FLAC, AAC, MP3 for comparison.

Will also demonstrate some features of SqueezeCenter (media software to interface with Squeezebox) and SqueezeNetwork (internet radio).

Please bear with me, we are learning from each others and exchange opinions, appreciate comments from fellow friends, hope this is a fruitful meet up.

Enjoy the music, see you soon.

Hi,

I need to make minor correction on my previous post about ripping. I would rip into AIFF, ALAC (similar to FLAC compressed lossless format as iTunes does not support FLAC), AAC and MP3 formats.

Just noticed, SqueezeCenter 7.4 official version had been released, i am downloading them right now and see if there are new features.

Hoping to make it there from up north, but family commits may make it challenging... anyway I'm also using a heavily modded SB3 for 4 yrs already, with external DAC.. hope you guys try out some plug-ins for the SB3 like Inguz (digital EQ)

Sounds interesting will try to make it. Next round perhaps I can demonstrate my new acer revo htpc running xbmc through ubuntu. Brilliant HD .mkv movies for the meager sum of RM1299. Smile

lushds,

Our friends and fellow enthusiasts at Hi-Fi Unlimited have this to offer: http://hifi-unlimited.blogspot.com/2009/10/httphifi4salefullboardscom-2nd.html

We demoed quite a few things.

In Room 1:

  • Apple iTunes streaming music in AIFF format wirelessly from a Windows 7 notebook to an Apple Airport Express, output via the Airport Express optical digital output (using the recommended Monster Cable optical interconnect) to a Cambridge Audio DacMagic.
  • Using the same Windows 7 notebook, streaming the exact AIFF files as above, to a Logitech Squeeezebox, using a coaxial digital out (via MIT RG-6 digital interconnect) into the same CA DacMagic.
  • Foobar2k, same notebook, same files, directly connecting the notebook via USB into the Ayre QB-9 DAC.
  • Repeating the same Squeezebox demo above, this time using a Mac desktop as the wireless source instead of the Windows 7 notebook.
  • All configs above were feeding a system comprising the Krell Evo 202 preamp, Evo 402 power amp, ATC SCM50 speakers and MIT, Krell CAST and Cardas cabling.

Room 2:

  • Wabun demonstrating the JumPan hybrid preamp to good effect using an assortment of power amps and speakers

Judging from the very positive response for his preamp, t looks like wabun's the man who can help design an upgraded power supply for the CA DacMagic. Highly-regulated, lots of juice, filtered ...way to go.
