    That auto EQ function on the DEQ2496 is fun to play with. But, don't let it tell you everything you should do with your system...

    Re: Post your home audio setups. Here is mine.

    Updated pics. I'd call this v.1.2.

    *Note* Pictures are all pretty poor because this is a north-facing room and has horrible light.



    Here we have the Classe CP 47.5 preamp with NHT X1 sub x-over. The NHT is not plugged in since the Ark is not ready. It allows stereo subs with all balanced connections thoughout


    This is the digital front end, still the Arcam Alpha 8se with Forte F-50 DAC.


    Sounds awesome so far, once I get my equipment setup how I have it all envisioned I'll start on room treatment!



    Comming Spring 2009


    I make rear-loaded, double crabshell, isobaric enclosures.

    No, it was made in 1992. The Arcam does though and I have it's analog outs going into... Line2 of the preamp, so it's easy to enjoy it all!

    Excellent. Glad to hear you get to enjoy HDCDs. So have you done any A/B comparisons with each converter with the same CD?? I would be curious which would sound better. I have an old Audio Alchemy D/A converter that I don't even use anymore.

    I sure have. The Forte sounds better pretty much across the board but it has the unfair advantage of having balanced outputs whereas the Arcam only offers single ended. I believe the this is what allows the Forte to have a much lower noise floor and better top-to-bottom balance. The Arcam's DAC seems a little soft up top to me.

    Why don't you just buy a Theta Digital D/A converter and use your Arcam as a transport.??

    http://www.thetadigital.com/product/gen8/prod-info.htm

    Supposedly one of the best DACs ever assembled.


    I bet it's pricey though.
