    Would it be possible for you to say how many of the Kabinet's have been made so far, and will there be a plentiful stock in the Kemper US store?

    Thanks for everything you've already done, and what's yet to come!

    The Focusrite 6i6 and above, have coaxial S/PDIF built in. With S/PDIF, there is no second analog to digital conversion, so the quality of the mic pres, or line inputs, doesn't really matter in that case.

    I've had the 6i6, and now the 18i8. The headphone output is the only thing that suffers, it's a bit thin without a headphone amp, but with monitors it sounds great out of the box. The newer 3rd generation is supposed to have better headphone output.



    Been waiting for this since day one. Excited to see the pricing! I've built some clone amps that I'd like to match with the Kemper Kone vintage speakers. :thumbup:

    Thanks. Although to be honest, I installed Windows 10 with a sense of resignation that Microsoft now owns the hardware I paid for and there's not much I can do about it if they want to flip some undocumented switch under the hood in the next update.

    I'm trying to force myself to get warm and fuzzy with The Way Things Are and just adapt to the new 1984 world of technology. Of course, that would be easier if the cute girls I remember from the 80s came along for the ride.

    The other dystopian alternative, that preceded 1984, is Brave New World - seems to be more of that one these days.

    Yes. Everything is updated.

    That particular error seems to be more prevalent with the Wi-Fi adapter. If you still feel like fixing it, see if disabling the Wi-Fi adapter in Device Manager -does anything. If you disable the Wi-Fi, and then shut down, do you still get a BSOD?

    You may also want to scan your laptop for Malware, it's possible you have a bug, use the free version of this utility to find out if you have Malware causing this problem:

    Interesting utility. A lot of those settings look familiar. What does it do / access beyond what I can already get to as an admin in Settings?

    From the site:
    "Windows 10 wants to give users the easiest possible daily experience and in doing so very rarely forces you to actually read and confirm a security notice. Unfortunately, this simplified approach from Microsoft means much more data is passed onto them than many users would like.

    Microsoft uses most data to display personalized information to you that is aimed at making your computer life easier. As an example, Windows 10 can remind you to set off to the airport 30 minutes earlier due to traffic en route. In order to deliver this information to you, however, Windows 10 has to access your calendar entries, your mails (i.e. the airline confirmation email), your location and it has to have access to the internet to get traffic news.

    Some services protocol your entire keyboard entries, share your WLAN access data with your facebook contacts or connect your computer without asking permission to a public – and potentially unprotected – network. While this means that you and your contacts do not have to grapple with complicated WLAN passwords, it also poses a significant security risk.

    Decide for yourself how important your “comfort” is when weighed up with your privacy and how to protect it. O&O ShutUp10 presents you with all important settings in one location – you need no previous IT knowledge and there is no need to manually change the Windows 10 system settings."

    You can disable Updates, Telemetry and more. The login screen where they ply you with strange messages and quasi-advertising - is just one of the things I get rid of.

    The computer seems to be working properly excepting the blue screen when I try to switch it off, so... Is it dangerous to use as it is and just make a hard switch off each time I use it?

    I'm glad to hear you can at least use your Win 10 laptop.

    The problem with leaving it the way it is, with the BSOD at the end of your session, is that one time it may actually corrupt your drive, or boot loader - for not shutting down properly, particularly in a Microsoft Update scenario.

    Are you sure you have all of your updates for Win 10? Go to Updates and Security, and make sure you have no updates waiting to be installed.

    It definitely sounds like a Network Driver problem.

    If you're able to get in to Device Manager, look at your Network Adapters, are there any exclamation marks?

    Go into Control Panel, Programs and Features, and uninstall any Network Card software you see in there. If you have an Intel network adapter, look to see if there are any software applications, like Network Access Manager, remove anything in there that belongs to networking. Same with Realtek network adapter software.

    If that doesn't work, try forcing your Network adapters to update their drivers:…er-blue-screen-error-fix/

    Let us know how it goes.

    Oracle Virtualbox is a free virtual machine program, and does work with the Host as Windows 7, and the Guest as Windows 10. I have tried it personally, the Profiler and Rm 3.0 works fine and communicates properly if you have the VM integration tools installed.

    Either way, complaining to Kemper about this, or blaming them for moving on, is a waste of time. Fix your problem.

    The beauty of this upgrade is that it preserves your PC exactly as it is now, it just makes it Windows 10. All of your user profile data is migrated.

    If there's anything that's not compatible, be it hardware or applications, the upgrade process will notify you clearly, and you can back out of the install.

    Hey all,

    A lot of us here are IT, so many may already know this, but for those who still have Windows 7 or 8.1, you can upgrade to Windows 10 for absolutely free. This includes the Pro and Ultimate versions, if that is what you started with. If you have the Home version, you get the Windows 10 Home version from the upgrade.

    Here's how - download the Media Creation Tool to the PC that you intend to upgrade, run it, and follow the prompts:

    Of course back up your data first, but I have done this process on over 100 PC's in the last 6 months - it has never failed or corrupted any data.

    Enjoy the new RM 3.0!

    Thanks Kemper Team!!

    EDIT: If you are concerned with privacy issues in Windows 10, install 'Shut Up 10', to regain control over your privacy settings:

    It's not about whether or not they're both connected, mate. I'm talking about not being able to monitor, without clicks and pops, the KPA's S/PDIF out whilst it's slaved (via S/PDIF) to your interface. That slaving will sync the KPA's S/PDIF input only. The only way to have both S/PDIF in and out synced properly is to set the KPA as master and your AI as slave.

    As I said to Kempermaniac:

    If it's the S/PDIF out from the KPA to the AI, the AI will have to be set as the slave (external clock) and the Kemper to master (internal clock). In this case, you'll be able to listen to both the KPA's S/PDIF in and out without issues.

    I've got it, believe me.

    Focusrite 18i8 set to Internal clock sync, KPA plugged to S/PDIF IN and OUT - no clicks, no pops - happy, thanks. Not reamping.

    Turns out I do have both the In and Out S/PDIF cables connected to my AI (18i8) here. I'm not using the DAW out/KPA in channel, just have the cables plugged in to both channels.

    At the friends house (6i6), I was connected to KPA Out only.

    I'm not using the re-amp feature at all, but yes, with both S/PDIF cables connected, Internal sync works fine for me, at the moment.

    Thanks MM! I wasn't trying to belabor the point, that I have some special KPA or interface, just that the Internal interface clock sync seems to be working with 7.1.2 (release works for me too).

    I do only have the output S/PDIF cable connected to my KPA .

    And yes, this wouldn't be the first time that the Internal sync worked, and was then broken later in updates. I'm enjoying it for the moment.

    This is what I'm experiencing, and am able to use Internal sync with S/PDIF.
