Just a small audio test of my relatively new PC setup.

- The source is an Asus Xonar Essence STX, but the OPamps have been switched to 2x LME49860NA and an OPA2107AP.
- Speakers are standard JMLab Focal 706S monitors but they are standing on Auralex MoPAD bases.
- Amp is an old (1976) harman/kardon 430 Twin Powered. (2x25watts)
- For cables I use a Profigold SKY stereo RCA cable. Speakers are wired to the amp by Van den Hul the Skyline Hybrid cables.

1. Audio was first recorded with a Zoom H1 microphone. Music was played through Foobar2000.
2. After this was done I played the music through Winamp, for the nice Spectrum visualization and shot the different camera angles. (All shot with a Nikon D7000)
3. In post all of this was synced with the Zoom H1 recording, and only the audio from the Zoom was used in the final export.

Music that plays:

1. Katie Melua - Piece by Piece - Track: Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (Acoustic Version) - 705kbps FLAC.
2. Sungha Jung - Perfect Blue - Track: Billie Jean - 756kbps FLAC.
3. Nero - Must Be The Feeling - Track: Must Be The Feeling (Kill the Noise remix) - 1080kbps FLAC.

All music was used only for demonstrative purposes. No harm was intended and all credits go to the artists and record company's.
