    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    More than JACK, it is the underlying ALSA layer that I find tricky to deal with. As a longtime Linux user, I've never found ALSA easy to work with, especially with me being an audio novice. And once PulseAudio was mature enough for regular use (sometime around 2010), I never really had to go...

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    @ankur1211 @red dragon : Thank you for the recommendations. Just realised that by mentioning the guitar amp (the cheap super-finicky amp that came with the guitar and which I don't use) I may have misled you into thinking that I connect to the interface via an amp. I plug in the guitar directly...

    Flipkart deals

    Excellent. Hope you like it. I like mine so much (and found the offer price so tempting) that I went ahead and ordered another pair. Amazingly, it arrived the very same day today. For once, well done Flipkart!

    Need to buy oven

    You certainly can cook in multiple racks. But it requires a bit of practice, and some trial and error. This is because the heat signature will differ for each rack (depending on the placement w.r.t. the heating element, the air flow, etc.), which means you may have to re-arrange the racks a...

    Need to buy oven

    OTGs (nearly every model, except the very small/cheap ones) are in fact convection ovens - having a heating element + a fan to circulate the hot air. You are probably confusing convection mode with microwave+convection mode. With microwave+convection modes, you get the benefit of faster...

    Flipkart deals

    Afraid you'll be disappointed if you prefer a heavy bass. These are essentially near-field monitors - certainly not loud enough for anything other than as desktop speakers. That said, I don't like heavy bass and use this (on my computer desktop) for movies/music/speech and love the clarity...

    Flipkart deals

    Yes. Has RCA, balanced and AUX wired inputs. Also has a mode where you can choose to play from every input all at once (though I have no idea where it may be useful).

    Just noticed this (and to think I bought it for ~11.5k just a few weeks ago :oops:): https://www.flipkart.com/jbl-professional-104-compact-desktop-reference-60-w-bluetooth-studio-monitor/p/itm7c5820c670603 This might be a decent deal too (with the 10% SBI offers)...

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    Afraid I haven't really spent a lot of time with the interface yet - still trying to get it to play well with JACK + Guitarix. Palm-muting... well, have only been practising for an year - so, not quite there yet. There's one song I've tried it with, Eagle Eye Cherry's Save Tonight - again, not...

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    @ankur1211 @red dragon - Ended up buying the Motu M2. Had to go beyond my budget some (cost around 16.5K ) , but went for it for a couple of reasons: 1. Has fairly well documented Linux support and a recent history of development/bug fixes. 2. It's much-touted headphone output. I figured I may...

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    @ankur1211 Thank you! Appreciate the details. As for me, I've only been practising the guitar for an year or so and looking at something for casual/practice recording, as a small step up. May also use it to record and save from old cassette tapes. Looking for something with basic I/O - an input...

    What exactly is Government of India doing?

    Have to admit: * that a farmer selling his/her produce directly will undoubtedly reap better profits * and, any farmer is potentially capable of accomplishing this In reality though, while a small minority of farmers may pull this off (even so, I would believe it would be despite the system and...

    Audiophiles Assemble - There goes Legendary SSL2+ burning a hole in my pocket

    Have been looking for an audio interface for some time now. While this is in a league way above what I'm looking for, can't help feel curious. Please do let us know once you post a video. If acquired online, could you also tell where you bought this and how much you paid for it?

    WTB USB audio interface

    Also appreciate pointers on decent online deals, if you come across something. Some more models I'm considering: Komplete Audio 2, Audient ID4, Roland Rubix22.

    What exactly is Government of India doing?

    The discussion on farmers reminds me of a time in the mid-90s when my parents (both practicing small-town doctors at the time) decided to put to use a piece of land (~1.25 acres) we own in a nearby village, primarily to employ and benefit a few people nearby. All of them were largely landless...

    Monitors Monitor recomendation wanted (good black levels)

    And if you are open to buying used, you may also want to consider the Dell 24" Ultrasharps on sale here. While I cannot vouch for the quality/condition of the ones on sale here, the Dell Ultrasharp range is quite awesome. Had originally shortlisted the Dell 32" (the one you had considered)...

    Monitors Monitor recomendation wanted (good black levels)

    Have you considered that FHD @ 32" isn't going to be quite as sharp as FHD @ 24"?

    Selling Stolen Products in Market section

    While it may well be true in the open market, this I believe is quite different - a market section inside of a community forum. Would it not be fair to expect someone to not stand by and watch a fellow member being "taken for a ride" (be it, seller or buyer, for that matter)? Just illustrating...

    Selling Stolen Products in Market section

    Granted, mods definitely have a tough, thankless job. Respect to them. This should not be seen as an attempt to villify mods. Instead, this is more of an earnest call for action, to allow members raise relevant queries and sensible discussions in sale threads. I personally do not understand...
