Hypex modules are the non plus ultra of Class D. @MarcelNL told me so and I agree! Very easy to put together and unparalleled in performance.I'm on the edge of this abyss looking in right now. Need to set up a streaming-only system for my wife and am looking at trying out a RP4 build. I haven't messed with these yet. Also on the fence about buying a Class D amp or getting a DIY kit.
No, Hypex are superior. A mesh triode amp could never compare imo.sure...still, can we agree not to enter into debates like this? as in 'all amps, wires, or 0 and 1's are equal'? It's about as silly as saying that f.e. an Ikea kitchen knife cuts as well as a TF Denka and pointless.
I appreciate different opinions, it's just that the
'debates' with Electronics engineers and other 'black/whitists' folks grow old because they never come to any conclusion other than digging in deeper ;-)
just to be clear, I was referring to the group mostly NOT involved in a serious way in audio. The folks you mention are highly regarded names in the industry, people who create seriously good sounding gear!IME while this is true more often than not I've run into a number of more open eared engineers that try the rule: the late Don Moses (primary founder of Wadia) and John Stronczer of Bel Canto, to name two, were/are both serious listeners and very willing to look for other variables or measurement techniques when what they heard was at odds with what they measured.
After being in the hobby for 35+ years I am heading in the direction of transparent/ accurate in the sources and amplification, and adding processing for correcting room/ loudspeaker issues (to a certain extent), and tailor colorations for particular recordings as needed. I'm experimenting first with the system I am assembling for my wife, and then I will figure out what I want to change on my system.
it's fairly large even when I'm only using one at the moment, so my response is 'system playing music' would be my sweet spot ;-)Do you have a sweet spot for your avatar?
While I have a lot of room treatment, all 2” to 6” thick absorption panels, open baffle speakers are much more forgiving of the room. I’ve been trying to get as close to an intimate live show as possible for some time now. While that is an impossible goal I have gotten the system to draw an emotional response from the listener.
I'm going to risk looking like an idiot, but… Where is the tweeter?My speakers are back loaded horns in an open baffle, using 3 , thirteen inch full range units and a JBL tweeter. if you google Klangfilm Bionor you'll find plenty references (be it by audiophiles ;-) )
missing at that stage of the build, but currently it's in, and heavily tweaking it (playing one speaker)I'm going to risk looking like an idiot, but… Where is the tweeter?
Geez, there is no need to laugh at me. I was just asking an honest question..missing at that stage of the build, but currently it's in, and heavily tweaking it (playing one speaker)
A good old JBL 2402 alnico @ 8K as the previous one could not keep up with the SPL.
I'm in the process of adjusting the filter (done I think, but for tweaking what filter components are made of) and tweeter position....all taking loooots of time.
