Re: Tinker, Tailor, Streamer, Pi.

Just seen this video on YouTube, a new dac to me, and cutting to the chase it uses a ROHM dac chip and sound quality is slightly softer/warmer than many dacs in this price range. Worth a watch

Re: Hi Fi in Phnom Penh

Thank you Stu, when I went to collect the amplifier he biased it while I was there and used crocodile clips, so much easier, why didn't I think of that.

Re: Hi Fi in Phnom Penh

Well I purchased some 6550 tubes to replace the stock ones in my amplifier. When re-biasing, the multi meter probe slipped and I shorted a resistor, anyway I have now had it repaired and picked it up on Friday.

Re: PC set-up: Active speakers Vs Studio Monitors

Very pleased you're enjoying the Douk /Dac, looks to be good value at £99. You might want to upgrade your tubes when you are more accustomed to the sound.
