  1. Congrats on your upgrade. I'll admit to being confused by how you're using this router. You have a wireless modem which of course has an ethernet port. You run your CATx cable to the Ubiquiti. Your Ubiquiti sends a CATx to the "A" side of the ER, correct? I have a Motorola Modem, the 6800 which supposed to be the best sounding modem according to tests from audiophiles from somewhere, I forgot. That feeds a TP-Link AX6000 WiFi 6 Router. I send a CAT6 to the ER which feeds my NAS, my small green computer that hosts the Roon Core, a Dlink router that feeds other local dev
  2. View Classified VPI Scoutmaster with Periphery Ring Selling my VPI Scoutmaster. I give it an 8 of 10 for a few minor blemishes and age. No Cartridge. JMW9 Memorial tonearm. It does have the uber expensive periphery ring I do have a Dynavector XX2 MKII but it needs a visit to Soundsmith for retipping. Not included in price. I was selling locally but found a good box to ship. I have taken the VPI apart for safe shipping (if there is such a thing). 30 minutes and it's back together. I need a preamp and I bought a Rega P

    Selling my VPI Scoutmaster. I give it an 8 of 10 for a few minor blemishes and age. No Cartridge. JMW9 Memorial tonearm. It does have the uber expensive periphery ring I do have a Dynavector XX2 MKII but it needs a visit to Soundsmith for retipping. Not included in price. I was selling locally but found a good box to ship. I have taken the VPI apart for safe shipping (if there is such a thing). 30 minutes and it's back together. I need a preamp and I bought a Rega P10. Don't need 3 turntables. I have video's that detail the condition of this VPI. Thanks for looking - Michael

  4. Interresting. I may be falsely assuming that the grounds are connected at both ends of the Supra CAT8 cable. In the UpTone ER manual, it stated that you don't want to carry a ground on the ethernet cable to the "A" side of the ER. Did you cut the shield on the Supra? Clock was $135 on EBAY. Is there a better price on a clock? Thanks for sharing your experience. I'll keep folks updated as the ER burns in and the Supra cable upgrade when they show up which maybe tomorrow.
  5. Interesting Martin. It looks though that you're using a Mutec and a BG together. Don't fully understand how that works. Is there a good result just using the BG? One left on EBAY. I must have ~400 plugged in power cords... 🤔 Good thing I have solar.
  6. Received my ER yesterday. Plugged her in and via a CAT6 of no remarkable quality but straight from my router to the "A" side of the ER. The B side used another unremarkable CAT6 to my microrendue which inputs to a Lindemann Musicbook DSD 25. Roon core resides in Sonore Small Green computer. It is/was a very fine sounding digital system. Listening through the ER I had little expectation other than noting late last year, ears I trusted described more than subtle improvements in SQ, so I ordered one. What I heard was not what I expected. I sat in my seat and said "huh". Hard to descr
  7. It just occurred to me. My backup database is very secure on my Sonic linux computer for which I can't get to. I only backed up my alternative PC which is not my "normal Roon database".
  8. Yes I can backup to the internal drive but that is temporary storage. Thanks
  9. Sorry folks to post looking for answers. I found a way to backup to DropBox (gee, another cloud server I seemingly have to pay for )
  10. Time for me to backup Roon. Well, 2 hours later trying every option I know of I've failed. The easy way I thought was to stick a USB thumb drive into the Sonic Transporter (the computer with no limbs) and use Roon to point Linux to the thumb drive (I mean, how would I mount a thumb drive with only the brain?) and hit backup. Well, nothing got backed up on my thumb drive. I tried numerous paths through Linux and Roon with no luck. Then I tried to use a network share thinking I'd be clever. Well I'm not. Then I tried backing up to Google Drive opening that path for sharing. All I got
  11. We've playing playing with this combo for nearly a month now. I was waiting for breakin and learning optimal settings. That and I had upgraded the cross-over components in the speakers so those needed to settle in as well. Some of my findings have been startling and I hate sharing those as I have thin skin, but for the few it might be well served to share. I use dedicated AC service through very high quality outlets that in turn feed a modded BPT isolation transformer. All of my sources are plugged into this transformer although I can go direct into wall outlet. I've been using the
  12. Lindemann Musicbook DSD. I am completely amazed at what I'm hearing through this extremely intelligent little box. I've had a number of impressive DAC's in my home The Vega, the Altair, Lumin T1 I owned, The Lumin A1 I tried before I bought the Lindemann, NAD M51, I owned, I have an Oppo 105 and I've listened to the Lampizator 7 at my buddies house. I'm hopeful to get a Minerva in the house soon and possibly a Yggdrasil. But this Musicbook is killing it. I thought I'd try it and sell it. It's staying. No I2S out. I'm coupling it USB Audio with the microrendu and Transpo
  13. I replaced another old network cable to CAT7. Unfortunately, I failed to reconnect to the Lindemann. I now realize that the first connection concerning the Microrendu/Transporter to Lindemann was pure luck. The day after, yesterday, I'd spent 1.5 hours with my IT buddy attempting to reconnect and only seemed to accidently reconnect after we'd given up. Today, I'm into now another 1.5 hours of rebooting, settings, more reboots, disconnecting connecting, prayers and again failed to gain a handshake. Maybe I'll sleep on it but it shouldn't be this difficult. I'd rather just listen to
  14. Thanks for the detailed explanation. Most helpful. So the files residing in the NAS get outputted either to the Lindemann directly which performs all of the decoding or, The Transporter takes the NAS files using the Roon brain which can decode files while add whatever flavor app one wishes to further process the file, then to the Microrendu which I believe reclocks the data and scrubs the power which is why I also believe why a quality external power supply is so beneficial. The audio file journey continues with it's new makeover to the Lindemann via network cable. If I got this ri
