Here is mine -- which I drew up mostly to depict the HQPlayer and NAA route for upsampling.

I'm used to making business operations diagrams for software development, it's always quick to modify an existing diagram.

 

 

 

I think this looks nice but it must have taken a while to make the diagram.

For once, it would be great if a thread wasn't polluted with irrelevant replies. This thread is a great idea, and some of these silly posts aren't helping. I wish a moderator would come and clean it all up.

 

Perhaps a "curator" with a penchant for verbose prose? Sorry - too soon? :)

 

That concludes the noise section of my response. Now, the signal, my system:

A couple of years back, I had this Marantz M-CR610 home from my dealer to try...

L_01.jpgIt's now been updated to M-CR611

 

Mine is evolving rapidly. I made this diagram about 2 months ago, and it is already out of date.

TBH, I'm genuinely surprised that some people feel compelled to crap virtually every thread on here and they are allowed to repeatedly do it. But particularly this thread, given its aim.

 

The purpose of this thread was to help people that find building modern systems a minefield with visualisations of potential solutions for them.

 

There are supposedly some intelligent people on here that, despite such intelligence, ought to brush up on the basic concept of needles and haystacks.

 

It would be a much more helpful thread for those looking for system ideas/tips if those posts that completely detract from the core aim of this thread were removed.

Hi Guys - All you need to do is ask. I was notified through the "Report Post" feature and saw what was going on. It's simple to make changes once I know the situation. I was in this thread a little bit ago, but didn't see where it had gone.

 

P.S. I think some of the commenters had good humor in mind while they were posting. I didn't mind it, but I'm not the only one browsing the site :~)

Hi Hurka,

 

Very good diagram.

 

Those chokes you refer to, are they the ferrite clip on type?

 

In my system (I didn't show them) they are on all of the digital only gear, but on general advice I've found on the web, I don't put them on the analogue gear, not even the DAC.

 

... however, everything else in my home, where possible, has ferrite chokes to reduce noise leakage back into the mains.

 

Tip, where possible never plug SMPS directly into the wall, use a mains block because then you can add chokes to the cable.

 

dac have separated clock power,battery,regulators and choke.

Thanks!!I use normal isolation transformers 230v-230v 1:1.500w,40w,30w,10w.(total 12pcs.)

All gears are modded.Sound become .....Huuhh

 

And no need expensive power cord!!!!!!

+1 I only have one power cord connected to mains the other (DC) is battery powered and not connected to mains while playing music. That single AC cable have a ferrite clip. I would be a little careful using them all over the place though.
