Windows 7: Sound systems!

13 Oct 2010   #21

Windows 7 Professional x64 6.1 Build 7600
 
 

Picked up a used Logitech X-540 off a friend for 50 bucks. Good enough sound for me on my PC. I think it's actually better than my Home Theater setup right now. My parents have a really nice klipsch setup at home though that sounds absolutly amazing.

Ultra high quality sound is coming and it will feed right into a high end DAC then to a preamp or surround processor. From there it's the sky's the limit. Clean typography of circuits and of course vacuum tubes if you can afford. The computer will be an good front end but only if Lossless or someday soon Hi-Res recordings are used. Downloaded Mp3's belong solely for basic ear buds or a low end car system. Still vastly prefer a great analog front end but that again could be out of you budget but in the end it's about great sound and has zero to do with loudness and such.
Good luck in your quest it's a fun and crazy trip but one well worth taking and always compare to live music in free space to reference you upgrades and changes.

I like an idiot didn't even take pictures of my last system which was a combination of a lot of what you see here with the addition of bi-amp'ing my mains with over 375 watts per channel 200 to the woofers and 175 to the mid's and highs running this through an external processor / crossover the AR9's over 30 years old awoke and never and I mean never sounded so good. Added a Pioneer Elite Blu-ray player and a nice little Cambridge Audio DAC and the system was flat out wicked just needing slow deliberate tweaking over time. The DAC was much kinder to a optical source to the usb source the jitter in the usb and artifacts of noise just not acceptable in a system with this much resolution. Stay tuned for one day I will re-assemble the best of all the bits into a wicked stereo and surround system. It was already close but needed the analog front end in place for the stereo side.

Doesn't explain too well why it's blown 4 of my Cerwin-Vega's at once with half volume... and the channels are showing 300 watts per channel, not 120 or 150.
