Here at Dave 'n' Jim's Hi-Fi Lab, we have had our first set-back
You know that silly digital purist's idea I had to drop the pre-amp?
Well, Jim was right, along with everyone else who questioned me. This evening I fried two hitherto working Supravox drivers with ear-splittingly loud digital noise.
Smoke, burning smell, flying small cones and worry that the TDSs had gone as well.
Between them, Audirvana +, iTunes and Audio Hijack Pro ground to a halt and made a horrible noise. OS X stayed up.
