Topping NX4 DSD – Surf To Us Next To Look For Extra Tips..

The reason we invest in a E&T audio rack is to allow the music to take us as close as possible to the original event, we carefully select the CD player we prefer most – connect it to the amplifier of our choice and finally to the speakers. We realize every component is a valuable link within the chain, if one of those is not performing at the same level as the rest of the chain – we have a problem.

The most overlooked link is the power source – the source of all the energy for our system. The mains power supply is the beginning of the chain, and something which needs more scrutiny and attention whenever we will be to realise the maximum potential from the Hi-Fi system.

Should you zoomed in to look at the incoming mains supply you would not see that super smooth sine wave that we are taught about in science at school, you would probably see the consequence of modern life, the sine wave is distorted and polluted by countless home appliances, industrial manufacturing companies causing radio frequency interference and distortion in the main supply itself.

The national grid network has never been conceived using the audiophile or Hifi Audio in mind, therefore little attention is paid to degradation and noise that can have a dramatic effect upon our home systems. This example is about to get much worse – already most laptops and many other devices use switch mode power supplies ( a less expensive and smaller option to using transformer based PSU’s) – but the downside is electrical noise, plenty of it!

Home data networks using the mains wiring being a conduit from room to room, Bluetooth phones, computer keyboards, home Wi-Fi networks all of these cause masses of RF borne interference as well as mains borne problems.

These can be spotted with a simple test….Does your body sound better late at night or morning hours? If the answer is yes you are probably being bombarded with interference out of your own equipment in use elsewhere in the house – or from your friends in the future. Including the Hi-Fi and Home cinema components themselves cause significant levels of electrical noise that may be passed from one component to its neighbour, therefore the need to cut down as well as eliminate cross contamination is important.

The Solution:- You must remove mains borne interference, by fitting a highly designed filter, mains cable or even a regenerator, an electric power block enabling you to effectively isolate each device from your next. we have been not referring to slight very subtle differences here. We have been referring to very dramatic improvements in system performance, you being able to enjoy your computer at anytime night or day, improved timing, tighter bass lines, higher resolution and more importantly getting more associated with the tunes. Manufacturers including Isol8 are experts in form of things mains related.

Generally the price for this step-up in performance is significantly less than a new CD player, amplifier or set of speakers. Generally you will see that many of the available HDMI Cable Reviews usually do not explain the significance of the usages in differing uses of the typical home used HDMI interface. It is extremely helpful to understand the value of the various HDMI specifications, whereby, a Cat 1 cable is capable of sending an audio visual signal to attain maximum results over a 720p or 1080i TV/LCD screen as well as a Cat 2 HDMI Cable is capable of doing delivering a sound visual signal to achieve ideal results on 720p, 1080i, 1080p & the brand new 1600p TV/LCD devices. The conventional specifications for HiFi Audio are quite a lot ranging from 1. to 1.4 which represents the brand new HDMI specification and interface versions being eeogzu available right now, 1.4 being the most recent DHMI interface specification. However, don’t concern yourself with these numbers just like any new HDMI equipped items are backwards compatible for cabling purposes.

It is essential that you select the minimum duration of cable for connecting your equipment and getting an HDMI interconnect which includes top manufacture quality. In order to achieve the most effective sound and video quality from the equipment a digital cabling plays a huge part.
