There is of course the possibility that something unrelated to the cable screening is causing the difference you are hearing. It's not possible to comment further without examining and measuring the system.
I will make and post some recordings using a screened and non screened...
Well yes, Im not going to argue with you if you are confident you can hear a positive difference. However there are a number of thing that need to be considered.
Firstly, its conceivable that the additional noise pick up you will now be suffering in your system is causing a spray of spurious...
I just took some measurements to show the impact of not screening an audio cable.
I set-up an RME ADI2 DAC / ADC in loopback so it is measuring its own output. I set a test signal at 1kHz at -60dB Full scale.
I laid the cable on top of a source of interference, a switch mode...
We have a lot of customers upgrade their AVR systems with our power amps. Yes the P422 will work just fine with the AVRs you mention using an RCA to XLR cable. Obviously the 7706 has xlr outputs.
The P422 will drive the Polks no problem at all. 😀
Hope that helps
Eddy currents won't be an issue in a twisted pair balanced cable. By removing the screen you have now exposed the signal conductors to a higher level of electromagnetic and electrostatic noise.
It's not just the cable that cancels the interference. This is also a function of the...
Mains power practices and requirements are an interesting topic. Often people think they have a problem when they dont. People sometimes think they need a special "clean earth"", when in reality the real issue is they are using single ended RCA connections which somewhere have the...
Im really pleased you are enjoying the amp :)
Doing as you describe should be absolutely fine. The amp module will not go active until all power supply voltage rails are up and stable, so shouldnt behave any different to coming out of standby using the front panel button.
Oh I think customers are intelligent enough to make their own minds up and see the wood for the trees.
When companies like SB Acoustics turn round and say the guy is wrong, and when the guy has already been forced to publicly apologise for his lies about Erin Hardison, and when he makes public...
