Can you swing an extra 200 bucks? The XPA-5 is a brute and will really take care of all your speakers.
If you wait till the next sale, the xpa-5 will cost the same as the xpa-3 anyway
Emotiva amps are serious business for rock, metal, techno and home theater.
I am not finding it to be a huge improvement over an ancient technics for classical, but more thunderous compositions...
prazvt please post results and impressions
So as per a previous thread I think my RTI-a9 tweets or crossovers are on the way out.
I played an MP3 at a high volume level. Didn't realize it was one of those crappily 0db-normalized tracks so...
They referred me to a local repair place.
Kind of the option I wanted to avoid.... they're 80 pounds each and I have my doubts about them fitting in my car, even 1 at a time.
not so good.
after much deliberation I have determined the tweeters are dead. What made it show? A Jackie Deshannon cd. Every time she hit the high notes tweeters went crazy.
Meantime I am using my Polk R15s,...
id3 tages are the bane of my digital existence
Correct, though I bought a new Roku M2000 instead.
Way I figure, internet streams are all low-ish bitrate anyway, and the M2000 will play flac off ANY upnp source, not just the slimserver (which...
Sorry, I'm not too articulate about audio stuff.
I know the track is full of distortion and such. When concerns me is that the tweeters are freaking out whereas they previously did not (though it...
I listened through:
media streamer optical ---> DAC ---> preamp.
media streamer RCA stereo ---> preamp
Also tried computer usb ---> DAC ---> preamp
Not at all a clean track but the...
Here is the spectrum, spectrum analysis and waveform.
Here is the track I can hear .... fzzzz... on. FF 30 seconds or so if you have a sensitivity to high pitched sounds, they went crazy on distortion at the start
did some more testing.
Is it possible that the thing only distorts at certain frequencies? Most things I play sound OK. However once in a while a track will come along and the darn thing will...
As I said, may be attributable to rattling (there was a glass pic frame behind the speaker) or any of the other variables I mentioned.
I'm using two RG6 component video cables with ferrite beads....
For the moment the pink noise + cardboard tube test pass with flying colors........
Definitely get nice clean sound from both tweeters.
Further testing is required.
no soldering involved??
Doubtful, it's 200wpc advertised, 265w on the bench, it's a 90lb brute and there;s absurd headroom.
There's also a led VU meter on the front and it didn't budge.
Though I suppose it is...
This is hardly "new" technology. Pretty widespread in industry. Maybe new as far as consumer market is concerned but it remains to be seen whether it is worthwhile.
And by worthwhile I mean worth...
Pretty sure the source track is NOT clipped.... I would have heard it all this time, no?
I will check in Cool Edit and post it here for some more discerning ears to try!
I have a pair of RTi-A9 running on an Emotiva 200wpc amplifier. They were run on an old japanese 50wpc for about a week but kept at extremely low volumes to avoid clipping.
I have it and it works extremely well. I was an early adopter of these boxes... I bought a first generation model in 2004-5 and it was severely limited.
While the WD is not quite computer-like in...
I hooked up the DVD player to a DAC and the dac to and old rotel preamp.
Agreed about the value proposition. I paid 80$ apiece for my R50s a few years ago!
I do not trust myself to hear sound...
Now the R50s are pretty sensitive overall.
I had a Yamaha RXV-359... standard 5.1 el cheapo receiver. Wanted hdmi so I got a Pioneer 820K (apparent low budget champ)
The R50s never sounded...
it's here.... wowowowowowow.
I didn't realize realize I'd need new furniture. I do not trust any of my ikea garbage
i took a little stout nighttable and even it is kinda wobbly
