  1. Drastically reduced price because of unfortunate current fiscal need, Now $450 shipped in Continental US! Remember that is with 32Gb of RAM! and the unused Akasa fan-less case!
  2. It is the 12v capable LPS 1.2, correct? Not the LPS 1? Just wanted to confirm that.
  3. I’ll take it, if it’s available. Pmail sent. Thanks, Todd
  4. Regrettably, selling my Intel 7i7 DNHE NUC with 32Gb of RAM and the Plato fanless case that I never got around to installing it in! Price is $650 shipped in the Continental US. I was planning on doing a server/endpoint system, but just never got around to it. I briefly tested it out running Windows and XXHiEnd out of Ram off a linear power supply and honestly it held its own against a Phasure Mach 2 optimized 12 core Xeon Server! It comes with all the original packaging, manuals, power supply, etc. Thanks for looking, Todd
  5. Hi Sharif, I sent you an email response, did you not receive it? It is $36 shipping to you in Saudi Arabia. I do have the cable & let me confirm I have the manual. You can pmail me here and my PayPal and email address is: [email protected] Cheers, Todd
  6. Item is Sold. my mint condition Matrix X-SPDIF 2 DDC for $260 + $12 shipping in the continental US. I have searched high and low for the original white box but can’t locate it. It does come with the included usb cable though. I’m only selling it because my Gustard U16 has a master clock input which I hook my Mutec REF10 to. I will say that it definitely outperformed my modded SU-1 running off a UpTone LPS 1.2, and it sounds great using the LPS 1.2 as a power source.
  7. For Sale My Black Itona Industrial Model USB Isolator with the latest firmware version. $200 shipped in the continental US!
  8. It’s the Xeon Silver 4116, the motherboard is the Supermicro MBD-X11SPM, Memory is: 6 sticks of NEMIX- DR480-CL02-ER26 8GB. No hard drive, OS and Music player in RAM loaded from removable SATA SSD. Power supply was custom built by an Agilent(HP)Test Instrument engineer, who is a close friend. BTW, serveral “insiders” are saying Intel engineers threw audiophiles a bone with the 621 chipset. I would also not doubt that the 6 channel ECC RAM is contributing to the sound quality. I am running a motherboard USB3, instead of my Neutron Star clocked PCIE USB board, it does however, go into a fully tricked out SOTM TX USB Ultra masterclocked from a Mutec REF10.
  9. Hi Chopin75, I would suggest you read about Rob Watts Chord Electronics M-Scaler. Pretty much cutting edge up scaling that feeds 768k PCM through dual BNC to Chord’s Dave or Hugo TT2 DAC’s. It is agnostic to Linux, Windows or MAC OS. Many users here use is with Euphony Stylus, including austinpop. I’ve yet to hear any PC based upscaling that approaches its performance. But to stay on topic for Bob, let’s suffice to say other well respected users of it that post here are using It with Stylus which is what sparked my curiosity. BTW each component I have is currently additive to my systems sound quality, I assure at this current juncture there is no part of my chain that I would remove.(I always leave components in for multiple days of listening and then remove them for multiple listening days.) Most of what I have in my post PC chain is well documented with worldwide positive feedback. Are there other options, you bet, with different engineering methodologies by different manufacturers such as DCS, EMM Labs or MBL but all are current state-of-the-art digital music reproduction.
  10. Hey Chopin75 and austinpop(Rajiv) Thank you very much for the additional insight on some Stylus tuning tips. I will give them a try. Also, I probably for my own piece of mind purchase, will purchase the license, just to make sure I’m getting the most out of Euphony. At our level of reproduction every little change seems noticeable. I know I’ve recently gone optical between my USB DD converter into the M-Scaler and dual BNC to optical and back from it to the Dave (OptoDX) and a second optical out of the M-Scaler to my digital crossover for my mid bass and subwoofer amps, So no doubt that RF, EMI, leakage currents, all play a large part in computer playback based systems. PC tuning for specific hardware and software is definitely part of the puzzle, even if it there seems to still be trade offs from one setting to another! I expect that my learning curve for tuning streamlined Linux based software will be way quicker than Windows !
  11. I’d be glad to join further discussion on a separate thread. I think there is much to be gained, as we’ve seen quite an evolution of computer playback in the past 2 years. I think any of us hear posting on this are still looking for whatever can connect us to the artist’s intent! I know that’s my goal and has been for 30 years.
  12. Hi Bob, I really do feel like my posts are about what variables might be hindering me from getting the most out of Euphony. I am not proposing in the least that my mind is made up optimizing my music playback software. So I’ll only post things relating to maximizing Stylus Todd
  13. I loaded Euphony into RAM, which is available on the trial version and of course I used 100% buffer. not sure why loading to RAM from Optane would make a difference?
  14. Hey Nenon, Thank you for a your insight about matching the PC with the playback software, but perhaps you didn’t look my post and my PC setup, which is about as modern as you can get, save the Intel persistent memory RAM ;). But high performance with very high grade ECC RAM modules and high grade linear power supply. Just food for thought, Todd
