It takes times for a whild building it but the sound is so amazing. Very happy with it.

Even ran in only a week but it sounds very good.

Very huge sound image.

Clean and quiet.

Nice build! What are you using to power the PC? I just ordered the HDPlex 300W ATX linear power supply. Have you considered that?

Yes i did but HDPLEX don't have a multirail LPSU to feed each socket like a regular PSU (which normally use in typical pc component.) so TeraDak is easier for me to use because it has the same cable as those switching PSU which i get use to.

but finally i faced a problem that HDPLEX power inlet hole does not fit to TeraDak so it need a little bit modified as you see in the pictures. ^_^

Thank you for the reply. I am not sure I understand though. I thought the HDPlex LPSU is multirail?

Yeah it's a multirail but not from external. it's a built in unit which i personally don't like any psu in pc case.

I am not sure I understand what you mean. All of the HDPlex linear psu are external units that you provide power to your PC with cables.

Looks good man, could you please specify the details for each component? By detail, I mean the model and what it does.

I can't find edit tool. Where is it?

anyway... I will describe them here instead.

Pic 1 - all items are HDPLEX H5 2nd Gen. Everything is good but the switch on/off (H logo) is not soft touch and not feel good when you press it. feel like a cheap product.

and ac inlet doesn't fit with TeraDak plug. If you use Teradak ATX you must sacrifice 2 brackets for it. sad...

the others are msi mainboard with OCXO clock / 64G OS SSD + OCXO / 256G Music SSD + OCXO / cpu i7 2.2Ghz / PPA Ram / USB card + OCXO / Black and Sarah SATA Cable / Audiograde with teflon coat DC power cable / JCAT Reference USB cable.

 

Pic 2 - You can see on the right of rear panel, I mounted Teradak power inlet instead of 2 brackets.

 

Pic 3 - All with OCXO clocks.

 

Pic 4 - This is my first time to install Heat pipes so it is not looking good. LOL..

 

Pic 5 - Music SSD

 

Pic 6 - OS SSD

 

Pic 7 - Audiograde SATA Cable.

 

Pic 8 - Affix SOtM absorber sheet on every chips of SSD

 

Pic 9/10 - Absorber sheet affixed to internal case where cpu and ram and also I/O port located.

 

Pic 11 - 2.5mm jack input for seperate DC power feed to USB Card.

 

Pic 12 - JCAT USB cable / on the right corner foreground is Teradak inlet.

 

Pic 13 - form the nearest one - Power Line Conditioner (silver one) / TeraDak ATX 350W LPSU (Black one) / a little LPSU for USB card / HDPLEX H5 / NAD M51 DAC

I think the one thing you forgot to install are the SATA filters from SotM...

 

On a different note, do all these clocks actually make a difference in all the components? Why didn't you use a simpler filtering chain, i.e Intona/Regen together with a Mutec M3+USB I think?

I've tried many filters which deal with signal path or power line paths. All of those things have at least one side effect to SQ. (narrower soundstage and lack of Airy and ambience as everyone knew about that.

Finally i had to take those things off and find the other way which doesn't cause side effect.

As my trial, Absorber sheet will not cause side effect. It's just only reduce noise while maintain an open wide soundstage and also Ambience which is still exist. That why i do not hesitate to use absorber sheet on my second PC.

 

I think " think of filter " is not a good idea. we should correct at the first point where the problem occured, not try to find the way to solve it while leave the cause behind and it still happen.

High Precision clock will work accurately in the right timing which will cause the lowest jitter and phase distortion. It means no data correction anymore. the sound is improved. The machine works faster becuase of it.

 

REGEN is quite good but good for the thing which you can't do much to upgrade your component like a notebook, a tablet or even Mac.

When it's good from the top so don't need to use anything like REGEN,Jitter bug.. No need.

Sorry for my noob question, but how do you connect all these clocks with each component? Is it via cable or via soldering?

Also where did you get these clocks and can someone use other type of clocks?

NAIDIVER,

 

You must have had the back plate for the H5 custom made to accommodate the unique connectors you are using. Who did that for you, Larry or some machine shop in your area?

Everything are ppa products, available on ppa page (try searching paul pang audio, you will find it) or on hi-end audio pc page ( or ask Phil in here)

SSD clocks are built in.

USB Card is also built in but there's an another version which the clock is separated from the usb card (easier when your pc need more than one pci card because builtin version you will loss 2 pci sockets because of its size)

All you have to do is plug a clock pin jack to its socket and feed dc power via molex connector.

The others are the same way to regular pc installation.

If you never do it, you can order as a custom made for the whole set including wins trial version installation, bios set up, lpsu, streacom case all around usd 3000.

 

I don't know much in tech term about clocks but as i know it is a first important key to SQ

TCXO is lower price than OCXO which i used.

OCXO is good enough for me because it's not too much pricecy.

It is also used in a hi end dac such as Aurender W20

Femto clock is an efficient clock, more accuracy which is used in the beast or ... I forget it..

Rubedium is extremely acurracy. Very expensive. Used in Antelope and Mytek Manhattan (i'm not sure but i've read about it once for a long time)

NAIDIVER,

 

You must have had the back plate for the H5 custom made to accommodate the unique connectors you are using. Who did that for you, Larry or some machine shop in your area?

 

At first, i asked Larry to do me a favor but the cost of it was Sooooooo expensive. Finally i did it myself because TeraDak inlet is mounted on its own back plate. I just drilled it, cut a bracket out and screwed it. ^_^

I found a Rubidium clock from a boutique company in Greece for €3K euros...I am in love, even if I can't afford it.

Yeah, I an in the same boat, but don't forget that a lot of these products are also targeted at pro-audio and recording studios, hence the steep prices a lot if the times...
