Compraventa

Enviado con el embalaje original, es decir, perfectamente embalado. Parece que todo funciona correctamente, a falta de un subwoofer. El aspecto exterior es inmaculado. El vendedor, muy atento.

Mis cajitas han agradecido la compra. Estos días he leído varias veces comentarios acerca de la musicalidad de los amplificadores Marantz, y ahora lo aprecio.

Lo más llamativo es que estaba utilizando una ecualización y un plugin de realce de bajos en foobar2000 al detectar una pérdida de bajas frecuencias tras la última mejora de las cajitas RK7 (falta la última mano de pintura). Pues bien, resulta que el mejor sonido lo obtengo ahora sin añadido alguno, “a pelo”.

    Ahora sí que el amplificador está a la altura de las excelentes especificaciones del DAC USB que adquirí semanas atrás, el ODAC diseñado por NwAvGuy (116€ puesto en casa, en la tienda suiza Head ‘n’ Hifi), y que recomiendo encarecidamente a todo amante de la buena música/grabaciones.

    El siguiente paso es la compra de un subwoofer, cuestión problemática en mi caso, pues el sitio menos malo que tengo es encima de un mueble, a la altura de las cajitas del RK7. Anoche decidí la compra de uno nuevo tras dercartar varios de segunda mano, alemán.

    Si es necesario, construiré una base rellena de arena seca para desacoplarlo del mueble y por ende de la estructura del edificio. El problema es que sólo tendré la posibilidad de girarlo y modificar los parámetros, no de moverlo, motivo por el cual no creo conveniente tirar la casa por la ventana.

    Había guardado mis auriculares Samson SR850 (32 ohms), que el RK7 Philips era incapaz de mover adecuadamente, a diferencia del ampli Denon (“secuestrado” por el televisor de plasma Panasonic). Pues bien, ahora suenan como nunca, diría que bastante mejor que en el Denon. Más aún, siento la necesidad de modificar la ecualización implementada para aplanar la respuesta.

    Por tanto, el Marantz me ofrece una señal cualitativamente mejor, y no sólo más potencia (100W a 8 ohms y 128W a 4 ohms con distorsiones < 0,1%).

    This graph shows that the SR4500’s left channel, from CD input to speaker output with two channels driving 8-ohm loads, reaches 0.1% distortion at 100.4 watts and 1% distortion at 114.6 watts. Into 4 ohms, the amplifier reaches 0.1% distortion at 128.2 watts and 1% distortion at 158.8 watts.

      Tough competition to beat

      With the PM6004 amp there’s an obvious goal: beat the Yamaha A-S500 that pipped its predecessor to our ‘Best Stereo Amp up to £500’ Award in 2010.

      To that end, Marantz has instigated a thorough overhaul, ditching the integrated circuits of the past in favour of separate preamp and power amp sections built entirely from discreet components

      Conclusions About the Yamaha R-S700 Stereo Receiver

      The Yamaha R-S700 is a welcome addition to Yamaha’s lineup of receivers. It’s also a refreshing change of pace from the typical multi-channel AV Receiver. Many multi-channel units, despite having a cost of well over $1,000, do not do justice to music. Many of them are fine for music, maybe even good, but I think this rating is always tempered by an oft unspoken “for a surround receiver” caveat. The R-S700 cuts to the chase and focuses on one thing and does it very well: 2 channel music. Now, that said, this is not a boutique audiophile 2-channel system.

      It is very good at 2 channel music, even better than many multi-channel receivers costing much more, but it’s probably not going to compete with a dedicated audiophile tube-amp based analog 2 channel system. Nor however, will it cost nearly as much. With an MSRP of $549, and a street price much below that, the Yamaha R-S700 is hard to pass up. If you long for a decent 2-channel system, but don’t want to take out another mortgage to do it, or if you have a smaller domicile like a condo, town home, or apartment, and don’t have the space for a full surround system, the Yamaha R-S700 deserves a serious look.

    enjoythemusic.com ADAM Audio A7X Powered Monitor Speaker Steven R. Rochlin

    Conclusion

    The ADAM Audio A7X delivers on the promise of not just highly accurate sound, it also plays music without fatigue hour after hour. The A7X have been playing here for at least 6, and upwards of 12 hours per day almost every day! In fact am listening to them right now as I type this, as they are my office speakers and thus had better be ‘all day listenable’ and produce zero aural fatigue. Am sure the outstanding X-ART tweeter has much to do with that. As I wrote earlier, if you have not done so you really owe it to yourself to hear these impressive tweeters…

    everythingaudionetwork.blogspot.com Mytek Stereo192-DSD DAC/Preamp: New D/A Gets Enhanced Features, DSD

    Despite a price of less than $1,600, the new Stereo192-DSD is right up there with the high-dollar DACs — in terms of build, features and audio quality. In fact, I think you would have to spend three times the price to get significantly better audio playback.

    With features such as ESS Sabre 32 DAC chip, native DSD/DoP playback, dual analog/digital volume control and quality headphone amp, and up-to-date computer connectivity, Mytek designer Michal Jurewicz, who has made high-end DACs for more than ten years, has shown that his latest DAC has what pros and audiophiles are looking for. The last Mytek I reviewed was the DAC-96 in 2006, and I found it to be a good-sounding DAC for its time. The new one, however, is in another league…

    computeraudiophile.com TEAC UD-501: Dual Mono DAC with DSD Streaming valenroy

    Excited to report that the TEAC-UD501 DAC is available in Singapore (Absolute Sound Level 3) at a fabulously attractive price of S$899! PCM support of up to 32bit-384kHz and DSD support of 64fs & 128fs via ASIO or DoP. Couldn’t resist and grab myself a unit for my headphone setup. The compromises made when compared to the Mytek is the lack of the pre-amp function and additional FIREWIRE/USB1.0/AES digital inputs. The TEAC is based off a dual-mono BurrBrown PCM1795 DAC configuration (dual toroidal transformers as well).

    This unit will be ideal if you are planning to use it as a dedicated DAC and feed single/balanced analogue outputs into your current pre-amp/integrated-amp. The 100mW @ 32 ohms load rating, as opposed to the 500mW for the Mytek, for the headphone amplifier section (uses MUSES 8920 opamps) seems meagre at most so I won’t be so thrilled to use it to drive Audez’e or Hifi-Man headphones but we will see when I try it out at home later…

    digitalaudioreview.net Resonessence Labs Concero review (TONEAudio) John Darko

    2. Sound. No, I’m not trolling. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the sound from the USB input on nearly all DACs (that I’ve heard) falls short of its neighbouring S/PDIF input. That’s assuming the DAC can do both. I know this from regular and consistent deployment of USB-S/PDIF convertors. Manufacturer marketing departments are understandably coy about this USB performance shortfall. They’ll hit you with words like ‘asynchronous’ and ‘world class’ (what does the even mean?) and hope you’ll let your credit card fly. That’s business!

    The solution.

    When you buy a DAC, buy a USB-S/PDIF convertor too. You’ll be grateful that you did. This kind of DAR reader email is not uncommon:

    “John – I took your advice and bought a convertor to feed the DAC in my desktop system. (ATM it’s a Channel Islands VDAC from my main rig but I’m looking for a replacement). It’s only the Musical Fidelity V-Link 24/96, but the difference it has made is dramatic. Better imaging, far more relaxed and natural sound. Previously unpleasant-sounding discs now sound fine.

    audioholics.com Marantz SR5008, SR6008, and SR7008 Receivers Preview

    What Makes a Marantz Different Than a Denon?

    To start with, Denon and Marantz have difference engineering teams responsible for the final "house sound" of each brand. On the outside of each receiver, we can easily see that the front panels look different, the user interface is slightly modified, and Marantz tends to have higher quality binding posts and legacy audio support. But, what about differences we can’t readily see? What can you see if you crack open receivers from both companies? Below is a brief list of some, though not all, of the key differences between the two lineups. Note that these points are specific to the 08' Marantz receivers versus the 2013 Denon X series. Also note that some of these differences only apply to certain receivers in the lineups.

    Current feedback preamp topology – Allows for higher slew rate and lower distortion at all volume levels (particularly at low levels) than comparable voltage feedback designs

    Decoupled capacitors – To reduce residual noise and interference

    Decoupled Capacitors. Left: Around Digital Board Entrance. Right: Around DAC.

    Luxury power capacitors – Custom capacitors, larger values for Marantz SR7008 compared to the Denon AVR-X4000

    Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Modules (HDAM’s) – A discrete preamplifier circuit module proprietary to Marantz that goes between the volume control and power amplifier section to further improve performance.

      andrew-robinson-online.com REVIEW – Emotiva XPA-5 Gen 2 Multi-channel Amplifier

      Under the hood the X Series Gen 2 brings about even more improvements over the first generation product, beginning with the amplifier’s power supply. The XPA-5 now utilizes Emotiva’s proprietary ultra-low, ESR capacitors that are rated to 105ºC, thus improving longevity of not only the capacitors, but the amplifier on a whole.

      The amplifier modules inside the X Series amplifiers have been modified using new high-current, gain matched output transistors. The new output transistors have been sourced from ON Semiconductor (formerly Motorola) and can be found in numerous high-end amplifiers apart from Emotiva. These new output transistors are charged with improving linearity throughout the frequency band as well as improving high frequency performance. The new transistors coupled with a whole new board layout and grounding scheme help the XPA-5 achieve a lower noise floor while increasing dynamic range.

      Lastly, the XPA-5, like all X Series Gen 2 amplifiers, features a newly redesigned Toroidal transformer that features higher grade silicon steel internally that helps cut down on mechanical noise…
