  1. For those interested on building a Fanless NUC7i7DNHE: There is this choice that comes ready...maybe too ready, apparently it has to be purchased with Ram and SSD among other things.... Hope it helps some in this forum! https://simplynuc.com/7i7dnfe-full/ Miki
  2. I have the modem in the second floor, this network extender receives the signal from wifi but in the audio room is only ethernet connection wifi is off. Do you suggest to use a router instead?
  3. Hi Guys, Would this be the right way to make this "Bridge Connection" in my set up? Thank you!
  4. Hi Everybody, I want to share my own experience with the NUC/AL with all of you: --Between the NUC+AKASA as endpoint/AL, the new HDPLEX200 to power both NUC endpoint + TP Link SG105 Switch, and the adding of the Ghent DC25 cables, (one for the NUC and one for the Switch), I can say that now my system has grow up considerably in its performance, my MacMini remains as the server. and this is with a thin regular ethernet cable between the switch and the Mac mini, (which will be replaced soon), the other two ethernet cables are BJC CAT 6a, one from Router to switch and one from switch to NUC. Can't imagine when the SR4-19 and EtherRegen join my system. I am still having listening sessions and comparing the Variable output (LT3045 of the HDPLEX200W) at 12V vs the fixed 12V, so far i believe the variable output is noisier, weird right?, Larry from HDPLEX told me that it should be because perhaps my NUC mostly consumes more than 10W and because the Variable Output is 2A perhaps is limited in that regard, fixed one at 12v is 10A so it is a more comfortable output for the NUC, who knows i will still making these comparisons, but i still wondering if those variable outputs could have an issue... DC cables from Ghent made a difference, i am very happy with them, for those who have HDPLEX200W please change those stock DC cables, i went with Ghent because previously i upgraded the one that came with the ISO REGEN/LPS-1 and it was an obvious increase in SQ (less noise) (i have no affiliation to Ghent, jus to be clear). Although i am not very good at configuring the AL software to its max (I know i have not and looking for to know Better), the increase in SQ is clear so far. Thanks to all in this forum for the great tips and help Cheers! Miki
  5. Yes they are very good, i have the one to connect the ISO REGEN to LPS-1 with also great results Has anyone in the forum heard how better in terms of performance do the ones with the JSSG360 compared with the standard Canare 4S6 DC cable without JSSG360?: DC-J01 Teflon Silver-Plated Star Quad DC(JSSG360) Cable DC-GAC4 Gotham GAC-4/1 11301 UltraPro Star Quad DC(JSSG360) Cable DC-7N16C Neotech UPOCC 7N Copper 16AWG DC(JSSG360) Cable
  6. Hi Guys, Has anyone experienced with the GhentAudio DC cables for using with the HDPLEX 200W? I ordered the basic ones and did not noticed they have better ones, like the (JSSG360) one and with the 7N OFC solid-core copper material. Unfortunately i noticed this variations once my package left their building. Will appreciate your inputs, thanks!

  7. Happy 2019!! Feliz 2019!! Wish you all good health and blessings and that all your projects come true 👌 Miki
  8. Well NUC + AL has been very favorable compared with the Zenith SE, so that says a lot
  9. I have just purchased my NUC7CJYH... I am trying to figure which RAM are you guys using for this NUC with best results: - Would it accept the 16GB or only 8? - Crucial DDR4 2400 SODIMM - CT4G4SFS824A CAS Latency 17 - CORSAIR Vengeance Performance SO-DIMM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) CAS Latency 16 - Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4 SODIMM @ 2400 MHz, CAS Latency 16 - Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 SODIMM @ 2400 MHz, CAS Latency 14 Thanks!! Miki
  10. Hi Guys, Is this the same Pentium board or if not, can it be used instead of the one that comes with the NUC7PJYH: ASRock J5005-ITX Intel Quad-Core Pentium Silver Processor (Up to 2.8 GHz) Motherboards https://www.amazon.com/ASRock-J5005-ITX-Quad-Core-Processor-Motherboards/dp/B079G91MQ1
  11. No i have a special adapter which Louis made for me 3 years ago, look: In this case it has the first generation of firewall attached (don't get worry about that), important thing is to make the adaptor, then you can add the NEW firewall 64X (wood one) as you see in the picture...
  12. While i still in the hunt for the Streamer which fits best with my system to put aside the 2012 macMini and can make a significant reduction in noise, i had the chance to purchase the last upgrade from Louis Motek´s LessLoss the Firewall 64X, i juts received mine two days ago with the suggestion of leaving it for at least several weeks before it can show its fully potential, oh man this little magic thing has put my system so far in another level of clarity, blackness dimension and easy to hear even my records that just could not hear them before, only 3 days and this thing is a HUGE improvement at least in my system which i consider is already a good one, i am going to ask another which i will use on the DAC, this one i put it in the MacMini and to be honest i never thought it could made a lot of difference in the Mac mini, really wow! very recommended! I have to say that i have no agenda with Mr. Motek, only the fact that every time i have had something from him is a hit and i don't have a lot from him I suggest this little piece of magic!!

    Jeff Dorgay & TONEAudio Declare War on CA

    Who ever is in his own right, there is no excuse for anybody to deal with a situation in this way, insulting and aggressive is not the way to treat with respect, bottom line he is a disrespectful person and no matter the issue it is not acceptable

    Jeff Dorgay & TONEAudio Declare War on CA

    Sooner or later this Pendej... was going to show up some where with his pathetic and irrational self, had a similar experience with his Nazi attitude a few years ago over facebook when elections were on fire and among all the audiophiles writers that i have on facebook as friends this intolerable disgusting man named Jeff Dorgay went "Cheetos" over me with an agresivo comment that he was going to shut me down for commenting about politics, he is a piece of.... BIG TIME, let him be, people like this guy little by little they go sinking in their own S...t Best regards Chris!!
