My little headphone squeezething - piCorePlayer running on a Raspberry Pi, with a Cambridge Audio DacMagic XS Headphone amp with a pair of Sennheisers. A modest setup for early morning/late night listening when I don't want to wake up the household! I have also tried Volumio, RuneAudio and SqueezePlug on the Pi with a Wolfson DAC card, but this is the most foolproof.

Beautiful, absolutely beautiful and I bet the setup sounds pretty darn good to boot.

Thanks. The pictures are shot with an old Nikon D90 and AFS Nikor 50mm f1/8. Developed with CaptureOne Pro and optimized in Photoshop CC.
PS.: Optimizing photos is my profession :cool:

Replacement for my Boom (R.i.P). Audio Pro T9 and an old iPhone 4 with iPeng player. The dock is a Apple iPhone 4 Dock. It bypass the volume controll and the headphone amp. Don't think the Universal dock does that.

I have relocated to a 80 square meter 2 room apartment with open floor plan ( kitchen and living room goes together ) and loggia hence I moved around my squeezeboxes and now it looks like this .
The former kitchen Touch is now in the loggia and the radio found a home in the bathroom/laundry you can see my server under the computer desk and there is squeezeplay on the PC so if I'm on my PC I don't use the boom that resides in the bedroom/study.

Welcome to my humble bachelor abode ( over aged audiophile bachelor abode... ;) naturally )

Some more perspective shoots btw I do wonder why iThings rotate pictures totally unpredictable , i held the f*** phone straight up but posted from my iPad is that it ? With these extra shoots you can understand the layout .

I'm very happy with the squeezeboxes , but also miffed that nothing new comes close ?

It might help if you include a close up of your Squeezebox setup as well :-)

What is the connection with the Union Jack when you live in Svenska?

The Touches are quite visible they are just connected to the hifi' digitally in one case the meridian system . O the Uniun jack bench it just looked cool ? . Details on the hifi are in my signature .

I thought the whole system looks cooler than just a close up on a Touch, everyone of us has one , the Touch in it's setting is more interesting to me .

How people use there boxes around their houses gives you ideas .

Ofcourse any normal person would maybe just crank up the main hifi if living alone in a apartment , but you can use sane volume if you have a playback system closer to where you are and even the main hifi is superior I want the sound in the same room that I'm in . And the neighbours are probably grateful for that .

But ocasianlly I just sync everything and opens a crate off beer with a friend :)

No, it is totally predictable as long as you live completely in the iUniverse. As we know, Apple Does Things Differently - and handling of picture rotation / exif picture metadata is one of them. So as long as you use iPhoto, the pictures come out all right, if you use any of the stuff that The Rest of Us use, then strange things happen...

He he they show in the rigth direction on both my ithings regardless of screen rotation AND i used safari one my iThings to upload... :) then they tilted to the side on the website bleurgh :P I would not all be surprised if the forum sw combined with iOS safari uses the actual ration off my iPad as reference I use it screen locked in landscape .

The only reason why I use iThings is the great iPeng and iRule softwares

Hey :) these Nubert speakers looks very cool . I see they also have full active models . There are many niche brands from Germany we rarely see anywhere else . I owned Canton and have a pair of Adam ,so Germans can build speakers on par with anyone else . We are usually swamped with Danish US or British options in Sweden (in reality the cheap ones are Chinese but anyway and Chinese consortiumís own many British brands )

Audiotic
2015-08-14, 09:43
Indeed. As far as I know KEF and others are owned by Chinese brands like GP. But they let them do their own. Which is good.
Nubert (these are the new NuVero 60's) is family-owned, and very very good value for the money. I am very happy with them.

I'm a fan of progressive talk radio. Since CBS radio has decided to convert my local KPTK AM 1090 progressive radio station to 24x7 sports, I have been listening to streaming radio since. CBS now has 1/10 the ratings they used to have. And, I'm still able to listen to all my favorites - Bill Press, Stephanie Miller, Thom Hartmann, Norman Goldman, etc. I miss hearing Ed Schultz and Randi Rhodes.

a friend asked me for advice putting a system together that sounds clean and isn't too expensive. i had some stuff around, and this is what i built for her...

it sounds annoyingly good :-) and very simple... consists of old SB3, connected via toslink to a NAD D7050, which acts as a DAC and amplifier and a crossover... i set the crossover frequency to 70Hz. the speakers are Totem Dreamcatchers, the bit of a dark blob on the right is a Velodyne Minivee sub set to 20% volume. i am now listening to jazz, and i have to say, this little setup is amazingly capable.

and of course, all hail SB3...

the one thing i am not sure of it'll work is to use spotify off mysb.com, can't try it until someone in Logitech links the SB3 to the new owner...

My design, Scan-Speak drivers (D3004/660000, 18W/8531G00 and 2x 26W/8867T00) in a closed box. It Is an active setup with filtering done in DSP (MiniSharc) and an amplifier (Hypex UCD180HG) per driver. Electronics also DIY.

Is the DSP done outside of the speaker enclosures? A single DSP handles Woofer/Mid/Tweeter x L & R? Line level to speakers, with amplifiers in the speakers?
Are there reasonable tools for setting up the crossovers in the DSP, and do any necessary "tweaking"? Is there ability to do room correction?

Without wanting to butt in, I think the miniSharc is from here https://www.minidsp.com/

The DSP is indeed a MiniSharc from www.minidsp.com, it feeds into an 8ch DAC (ESS9016 based) from there it goes to a 6ch power amp based on Hypex UCD180HG modules and a Hypex SMPS. DSP+DAC and Power amps are built into 2 standard enclosures and not into the speaker.

The DSP comes with it's own Windows and OSX software created by MiniDSP. To measure the speakers I use Arta. For roomcorrection you can look at the REW software (amongst others).

I am not sure if I have posted in here before. This is my Living Room setup which I rarely get to use as someone else likes her TV shows.

http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160629/aadca0b5281284e6dd3f39e518957c36.jpg

Below the TV at right is an SB3 and left is an O2 Joggler that I use as a controller and now playing display. The SB3 display is off - hopefully to preserve its life.
Below the Joggler is an Onkyo AV Receiver which is operating in pure music mode with video circuitry off. The SB3 is connected both digitally and by analogue for zone 2 purposes.

It's old, it's dusty but it works great every day - the analog output feeds an old powered PC speaker system that's even older than the slimp3 box.
