2023 - November - Christian T.


Many thanks to Christian for hosting this months GTG.


I was busy with life so was unable to attend.

Reports are about 10 people went along and had a good time.

They spent the day chomping all sorts of goodies including a couple of pizza's and cheesecake :)


So without more idle chit chat........


Changes since the last QAC meeting:
Raspberry Pi hardware upgraded to Pi 4 8GB RAM which results in a much wider and more detailed soundstage.
Upsampling now all files on the fly to 24 bit on the Pi to meet the DAC highest sample rate which creates additional transparency.
Musical Fidelity M6si amplifier 2x220 watts in class AB 8 Ohm
