I read the manual for my RIIA amp. It is a schiit mani but this may be applicable on many other riia:s. I discovered in at schiit home page that the lower the gain are set then the better performance will be given to you! The schiit gives at 30dB THD: <0.005%, SNR: >90dB But if I use the standard MM mode a 42dB THD: <0.008%, SNR: >82dB And so on.. I use a passive preamp so if I go with the lower gain at 30dB and then I only need to turn the volume potentiometer more and as long the sound levels are sufficient I do not care. If the volume knob is at 11 o'clock or 3 o'clock.. So now at 30dB I utilize better the RIIA preamp and enjoying the: THD: <0.005%, SNR: >90dB Instead! And the full value/performance are utilized of the RIIA. http://www.schiit.com/products/mani Gain 1 = L, Gain 2 = L (Decca Mode) Gain: 30dB THD: <0.005%, A-weighted, at 1V RMS SNR: >90dB, A-weighted, inputs shorted Crosstalk: -75dB, 20-20kHz Sensitivity: 9mV for 300mV output Overload Margin: >20dB Gain 1 = L, Gain 2 = H (Standard MM Mode) Gain: 42dB THD: <0.008%, A-weighted, at 1V RMS SNR: >82dB, A-weighted, inputs shorted Crosstalk: -75dB, 20-20kHz Sensitivity: 2.3mV for 300mV output Overload Margin: >20dB Gain 1 = H, Gain 2 = L (Low Output MM/High Output MC Mode) Gain: 48dB THD: <0.01%, A-weighted, at 1V RMS SNR: >80dB, A-weighted, inputs shorted Crosstalk: -75dB, 20-20kHz Sensitivity: 1.3mV for 300mV output Overload Margin: >20dB Gain 1 = H, Gain 2 = H (MC Mode) Gain: 59dB THD: <0.03%, A-weighted, at 1V RMS SNR: >70dB, A-weighted, inputs shorted Crosstalk: -75dB, 20-20kHz Sensitivity: 0.3mV for 300mV output Overload Margin: >20dB
I just wanted to bring to everyone's attention a cool new feature within your user profile page just launched by the VC coding team. You can now add all your vinyl gear ( to our user profile. I setup mine to show you an example. When you click my profile on the left hand side under my "About" section we added another section titled "Your Gear Setup". Now you can share your turntable setup in all it's glory! To add your gear just go to your profile page (click your profile name in the black menu bar top right). Click edit "Edit Profile" near the top of the page. A pop up window will appear and under your "Basic Info" you will be able to fill in all your gear! Any issues doing so please @ me or pm me! Thanks to @vinyl addict for the feature request!
Hello everyone, I have my own setup in my record studio but recently I bought an old school Technics SL-BD35 for my GF. Next step is the speakers. Now, you know girls...one of her first requests is that it should also "look good". I know I know, girls.. My budget is 400 bucks and my idea was the following one: Technics SL-BD35 + Bellari VP29 Solid State Phono Preamp + Marshall Hanwell 50th Anniversary or Marshall Stanmore. Since I have a little discount on a certain internet site it would cost me exactly 405 $. Do you think that this is a good idea? I thought that the result would be a solid sound quality out of this system plus the damn look she's aiming for but plz let me know what do ya'll think. Thank you for your help. Fab PS: I can already tell you that she doesn't like Audioengine, Nocs n Pioneer S-DJ50X.
I don't know too much about amplifiers, even more so for this specific model that I have unused, but would this be a good amp to play a turntable through? (As in quality, etc.) Probably not too high quality, but maybe it'll do okay I'll be running a Debut Carbon through a currently unchosen phono preamp.. (And by the way, what would be a good midrange preamp? I'm considering the Bugle2, Azur 640p or something) Thanks!
