USB clean-up: When does the high end catch up?


 Share

Recommended Posts

Random thought:

 

With all of these fantastic results coming from <$400 worth of USB cleaning devices, when do the higher-end DAC manufacturers take notice and start adding their even more improved versions built into their DACs? It surely can't take much to add a couple hundred dollars in parts to a multi-thousand dollar unit and run it off the unit's own LPS.

 

I love trying different USB cables and adding tweaks as much as the next guy, but I'm hoping more elegant and effective solutions are just around the corner for us..

Synology DS1515+ >  PS Audio P10 > Innuos Zenith Mk II running Roon Core > IsoRegen/LPS-1 > Lyngdorf TDAI 2170 > Tekton Double Impact Speakers

It's been done. MSB, for instance, has an outstanding USB module that they invested heavy R&D in. Adds about $1000 to the ost of a DAC.

 

And if a small device like the Sonore microRendu is truly superior sounding, I wouldn't be surprised if some other manufacturers build it internally into a DAC.

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)
