    Talking to the Yamaha engineers, there is no way to avoid the A to D step. I have no idea why they chose to design their equipment this way… Maybe the volume controller only works in the digital...

    Thanks for the generous offer... but I'll take a rain check.:D


    If you used a digital output from the Oppo, then you have eliminated one level of conversion, but if you go into the Yamaha on any...

    Thanks Todd for this detailed "backgrounder". Now I get it.

    From my perspective I would put this amp in the same category as Lowther full range loudspeakers. There are many out there who get...

    D’oh!

    Of course… I obviously wasn’t thinking it through.

    Hi Todd,

    To get to the chase, what are you trying to demonstrate?

    How loud do you play? Many decades ago I used a pair of K130s in a high output home stereo system and found the bass was actually pretty good with a bit of shelving EQ below ~150Hz. 3-6dB of boost at...

    +1

    Excellent advice. Looking for something new is always fun, but sometimes it makes sense to wait.
    When you do get ready to replace the amp, I would suggest trying amps in your room with your...

    I'm not sure there is a debate here. ;)

    Yes, but if the tube amp has top quality output transformers the impedance shouldn't be an issue. In my experience with high quality tube amps the...

    I am not a fan of RTA measurements in general. They were the SOTA in 1982, but today we have better tools.

    I assumed your noise measurements were using calibrated equipment from your work.

    No...

    Poll: K2-s9800

    I assume they are static appearance models created by/for the industrial design team to sell the design to management.

    Can't say you aren't dedicated!

    Did you take any high resolution FR measurements to see how the two systems diverge? Do you have impedance and phase response measurements? 1/3 octave RTA...

    If I understand your post, you have a stereo pair of speakers, but you are running the left and right woofers in mono and in parallel? If that's the case, you should try it wired conventionally and...

    Welcome to the Lansing Heritage forum.

    The 077 is functionally and exact replacement for the 2405. The only difference is cosmetic. Don't worry about the impedance rating, there is much confusion...

    FWIW: Using steel MC cable offers a significantly higher degree of EMI shielding than the aluminum MC cable. Some years ago we measured it at work and the difference wasn't trivial.

    Apologies... a bit OT.

    I guess it is more difficult than you would assume trying to communicate subtle, nuanced information to people with all levels of education, differing levels of acceptance of information from "the...

    Todd, I was kidding about the hash!
    I was just continuing my ribbing you about the utility of that form of "scientific" demonstration.

    That explains the hash I heard that on your videos!

    Sorry man, just pulling your chain. :duck:

    I agree with you that a dedicated circuit for your AV is a good call. A couple of years ago I did...

    Yes.

    These will be physically larger than NP electrolytics, but still quite affordable and presumably will sound better.

    Yes, a 2235H will give you significantly deeper bass response.

    If you are going to recone, I'd use the 2235H kit without the mass ring. Leaving off the mass ring makes the woofer a 2234H which is...

    Congratulations!

    Dang those are massive... they look even bigger on their sides!
    How do they sound? I imagine the low end will be different, perhaps even better.

    I moved your thread to the Lansing DIY area as it seems more appropriate.

    My 2 cents.
    I would eliminate the 2202H or use it up to 900-1000Hz instead of cutting it off at 600Hz. The larger Yuichi...
