The IFI IEMatch 2.5mm is on sale!

The IFI IEMatch 2.5mm is on sale!

Hi everyone,

Today is Black Friday, and it seems Amazon is having a sale for the iFi IEMatch 2.5mm Audio Attenuator.

This device usually retails for about $59, but today, you can get it for just $49. That’s the same price of the 3.5mm version!

If you’re an owner of sensitive IEMs, you may have experienced the problem where you hear some background noise, or the volume control stepping is really bad. It is either too low, or too high, with no middle point. This little adapter will reduce the hiss and noise from the audio source in which it’s being used, as well as helping you at having better volume control.

The IFI IEMatch 2.5mm is basically the same as its 3.5mm version, except that it is designed for use with 2.5mm sources. It has the same 2 operational modes: High, and Ultra. High reduces the audio volume by 12db, while the Ultra setting reduces the audio volume by 24db.

I’m an owner of the iFi IEMatch 3.5mm version, and use it with my Hidizs MS4 in the Ultra setting. It works wonderfully when used with some USB DACs that are way too loud when used with this sensitive IEM.

Since I now own a 2.5mm DAC, and another one is in the way, I’ve decided to take advantage of this sale to use it with my 2.5mm DACs and have better volume control.

I’ll write another post detailing the improvements of using this with my DACs. In the meantime, you can take advantage of this sale by clicking on the link below:

Opus GUI V1.14 released!

Opus GUI V1.14 released!

Hi everyone,

Last week, I released Opus GUI v1.14:

Opus GUI v1.14
Opus GUI v1.14

This release adds a new “CPU Threads” option to limit the number of threads used for the encoding. This was added because sometimes when encoding multiple files, ffmpeg may get stuck due to having 100% of CPU utilization. Limiting the CPU threads will prevent this issue from happening.

You can download this new release on GitHub by clicking here.

Enjoy!

Opus GUI v1.13.2

This release fixes a bug introduced in v1.13.0. The problem was a crash that happened when encoding files stored in Google Drive and the file did not have an extension or the extension was in the ignore.txt file.

Additionally, a folder name label has been added in the Google Drive form. You can click this label to copy the folder name to the clipboard. It may then be pasted in the output path or other locations.

You can download this release on GitHub by clicking here.

Enjoy!

Audio MD5 Checker v0.1 released!

Audio MD5 Checker v0.1 released!

Hi everyone,

Today, I’ve released my new tool, Audio MD5 Checker:

Audio MD5 Checker v0.1
Audio MD5 Checker v0.1

This is an essential tool to have to compare audio hashes when you are recompressing FLAC files, converting WAVs to FLACs, or recompressing MP3 files.

The tool makes use of ffmpeg to determine the audio hash and checks if the other file audio matches, making sure that the recompression or conversion went correctly.

The tool is open source and the code can be seen here.

You can download this new software on GitHub by clicking here.

You’ll need to have ffmpeg in your system. If you don’t have it, please refer to this guide.

Enjoy!
