Re: Anan 100 What is the actual Rear Jack speaker impedance

You do not want to use the powered speaker jack output to drive an audio amplifier.

The built-in audio amplifier is a TPA0202 in bridge-tied mode. You can check the data sheet, but it expects an 8 ohm speaker IIRC.

Re: 32 vs 64 bits

Those are some very odd results, Phil. I'm at a loss to explain them. It's almost like your system is missing some sort of critical OS resources to run 64 bit applications.

Re: RX2 not same signal level as RX1

I don't know if you can follow the traces to reverse engineer things. That's why it would be good to contact the factory for the schematics. Assuming you have the right cables/adapters it should be no problem to inject a signal directly into the RX1 connector on the Orion board. You will have to dis...

Re: RX2 not same signal level as RX1

Chris: there's a dozen things that could be wrong. Does RX2 work ok? What happens when you connect an antenna directly to the RX1 input on the Orion board? That'll narrow it down some. Bottom line: no one can give you a definitive answer. Best course of action is to get the schematics from the facto...

Re: ANAN-7000DLE MKII vs ANAN-7000DLE

If you are looking at the "no PC" version, there is almost no difference at all. The cooling is supposed to be better in the MKII. The MKII's also have a step attenuator after the DAC and therefore offer slightly better IMD performance. Finally, there were versions of the MKII that offered...

No version of PowerSDR or Thetis can break your firmware or hardware. That was a good experiment. It proves something else change that is not related to Thetis.

That's looking a LOT better. Change your VAC buffer size from 64 back to 2048 for now. Your VAC resampler is running wild--look at the giant under and overflow counts. Not good.

Yes, John, that is, unfortunately, a total train wreck. I do recommend you read my older tutorial. First, in Thetis, you need to have RX1 AF turned up to 100. This will cause the VAC audio output to be referenced to 0dB (100%). If you want to turn it down a little you can do that in Voicemeeter. You...
