  1. Do you get any signal when using the multi-channel outputs (FL/FR) to feed the Yaqin, not the dedicated Audio Stereo outputs on the Oppo? Please try this. If this does not work, could you go into the Oppo Audio Processing menu and check: . Stereo Signal: To select the audio source that will be processed and sent out through the STEREO and the XLR BALANCED STEREO audio terminals. The available options are: - Down-mixed Stereo – The stereo or down-mixed stereo signals are processed and sent out from the dedicated stereo output terminals. - Front
  2. Are you getting no sound, some sound or what you think is not just a stereo mix? Is this failing when you just play a CD or a DVD/Bluray? Basically, while it works using another amp, does the Yaqin work when using a source other than the Oppo? Do you think the problem is with the Oppo, which works with the Onkyo, or with the Yaqin? Do you get the same results when with all Yaqin inputs?
  3. Greetings, Would you be able to expand on what is not working? Are you using the dedicated Stereo Audio outputs or the Multi-Channel outputs (FL/FR) to feed the Yaqin?
  4. Not a phono stage that has been mentioned, but I suspect more from lack of availability/popularity than any other reason, but I have have great results with a Tom Evans Groove+ SRX with a Koetsu Onyx and prior to that a Kiseki Purple Heart. I can assure you that it will add no "valve warmth", but will extract what is on the record in a fairly neutral way. Fixed gain, with setting for Impedance and Capacitance on rear, but only single input. It works in my system. Just a thought and worth having a look at.
  5. The easiest way I have found to set the VTA is using a laser leveling tool (Ozito 8m Cross Line Laser Level Plus Tripod - Bunnings Australia) which I purchased during a home build and have now found another use for it. I tend to be a "get it level and leave it", whereas I know many people will tail up or tail down in increments and they get great results. I have used this laser on 3 turntable setups I have, one with a tapered arm (SME V) and the other a Rega RB300 and it works well. As the Alphason has no quick VTA adjustment, micro settings could be a challenge.
  6. I have owned an Alphason Sonata with HR100MCS arm for over 20 years and for most of that time was running Ortofon MC30 Supreme cartridges and it sounded fantastic with great detail. A couple of years ago I decided to try a Kiseki Purple Heart and it did indeed take it to a new level and matched this arm beautifully, albeit, at a cost. Also ran it initially with a Denon 103D (with original Garrott Micro-Scanner stylus) and it was great. I think you will find this arm will work with most cartridges and its design is an elegant work of art.
  7. Further information: YBA YM-501 DVD Player. This is a substantial unit, that in my opinion is an excellent CD player, more so than a competent DVD player. It is extremely well built and includes a USB input that reviews indicate as 24/192k compliant, although I have never tested this, nor can I confirm what formats it will decode. The drawer mechanism works without issue, and apart from a couple of minor scuffs on the top, presents very well. This French company get high praise for their designs and when released in about 2010, this was a far from inexpensive player at approx 800 UK pounds. T
  8. Further information: Trichord Diablo Phono Stage with Never Connected Power Supply (NPSU) and power lead upgrade. Trichord is the electrical design company aligned with Michell Engineering (aka Michell Gyrodec turntables) and make the turntable power supplies and Phono preamps. This is a high quality phono stage, with a small form factor, separate power supply and the upgraded power connector. In the UK this retails for just under 1600 pounds, so far from Inexpensive, but a great opportunity for someone to climb the vinyl reproduction ladder at a very reasonable price. Mono &

  10. Thanks for the feedback. I think it is an excellent price too. Great headphones with extras. The Dekoni earpads are pretty much the same as that on the Utopias. Super comfy.
  11. Further information: Focal Elear Headphones in excellent (as new) condition. These have Dekoni Audio Elite Fenestrated Sheepskin earpads fitted (original Focal Elear Velour pads are included). Also included is an extra Focal 1.2m (6.35mm terminated) cable, for those who find the originally supplied 4m cable too long, although I found it perfect for sitting on a lounge that was 3+ metres away, plus a Sennheiser 6.35mm to 3.5mm adapter.

  12. My understanding is that setting the device to 4K60 SDR will transfer a non-HDR stream, but as I have never tried this, or had the need to, I can only go by what is documented and assume it functions as described..
  13. Hello Lonewolf, This is what the manual says, which suggests you can, but as I have never tried it I am only going on what is documented.
