Thank you for the quick reply! I left a message with
Martin, so hope to
hear from him soon. I just purchased JRiver last night and
playing with it for the last 30 days after reviewing others. I came
the same conclusion as you and find that it is a great tool for
audio playback and music library. I do get distortion from time to
that I attribute to my laptop that probably needs to be reimaged.
you had any issues with the XDA-2 DAC? Opinions? I have not listened
any others so just curious.

> Hi, Kevin:
> It was nice meeting you at the
meeting on Saturday. I have Emotiva
amplifiers in my HT system and also have
the new XDA-2 DAC from Emotiva
as well, although I do not use it with my HT.
I believe the new Emotiva
surround sound processor has a HT Bypass function
which allows you to
connect a separate two channel system into your HT if you
want to go
that route. Of course, you can also run your HT surround sound
two channel mode if you prefer that for music. As I mentioned at
meeting, Bjorn's used to be a B&O dealer and they have an
repair dept., so they might be willing to fix any of your equipment
they can get the parts for it. Martin is their main technician and
very helpful, although his office is not in the store, but rather
old store over on loop 410 near Broadway which is now their
and repair dept.
> As for your laptop having problems, I am
not sure what is going on
with that. I didn't "clean up" any of my computers,
either desktop or
laptop when playing digital music, so not sure what you are
that regard. What music playback software are you using on your
I use the JRiver Media Center on my computers and it is excellent
has been highly rated and reviewed in many places. It costs $50, but
worth it in my opinion.

persevered the highway 281 obstacles to get there. I gave a
introduction at the meeting and had to leave early so here is some
information and questions, I hope you don't mind:
> My name is Kevin Knickrehm and I moved to San Antonio a little over
year ago from Omaha, still finding my way around. I currently own
Bang and Olufsen equipment because that is what I envied in
the "70s and '80s
and could not afford back then. Since then I have
bought and sold a lot of
B&O equipment, but also had a great repair
person that I could count on
(I am not a DIY, but am fascinated by those
that are). I have great need for
a local San Antonio repair shop or
person that can help with some of my
equipment. If you know of anyone,
it would be much appreciated.

am enjoying the digital audio world now but need to clean up my
laptop because of interruptions from time to time during music
If any of you have experienced the same, would love some

fact that my listening
room and Home Theatre room have to be one in the same.
It is not large
and I don't want to give up 2-channel equipment for a Home
was leaning towards Emotiva equipment for the HT, but what to do
the B&O equipment and 2-channel stereo? Anyone have experience
Emotiva and can share opinions?
> > Finally, my

I am a product of the '70s (classic rock) but have
enjoyed Jack White
recently. If I had to choose one genre for now, it
would probably be classic
and orchestral Jazz and some big band.
