  1. I've actually been considering flat ethernet cables for the EtherREGEN to keep it from moving around. Congratulations on some really good experimentation.

    I'm a bit surprised your Scythe cooler with 2 fans can't tame your temps better. What case are you using ... do you have plenty of airflow?
  4. There's very little discussion of Sonore products on the silly thread. People need to actually try things out themselves to decide what makes a positive difference in their system. Of course, you can choose to just believe vendor fairytales instead.
  5. Here's a warning about the impact of the trade war from the new managing director of the IMF. I guess they don't cover this on Fox News, so Trump won't get the message. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/trade-war-could-cost-global-economy-700-billion-by-2020-new-imf-chief-says-2019-10-08?mod=newsviewer_click
  6. This is supposed to help the Uighurs as well, but it looks more like another aspect of the US/China trade war. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/us-to-blacklist-chinese-artificial-intelligence-companies-2019-10-07?mod=mw_theo_homepage
  7. There's an extensive review up on ArsTechnica with good coverage of the new Music app vs iTunes. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2019/10/macos-10-15-catalina-the-ars-technica-review/
  8. Intel has reduced prices on 9th Gen CPUs without integrated graphics (F and KF models) to better compete with Ryzen 3000. Note that some of the base/turbo frequencies in the chart on page 1 of this article are incorrect. For example, 9700F is listed as 3.6/4.9 GHz, it should be 3.0/4.7 GHz. Anandtech is usually pretty quick to make corrections. https://www.anandtech.com/show/14941/intel-announces-price-cut-for-9th-generation-f-and-kf-processors

    Does anyone have experience with this configuration to report?
  10. I have some good news from HDPLEX. There is a new Version 2.1 of the 400W DC-ATX that is now available to order. HDPLEX advises that the inrush current on the new version is only 0.5A at 20V input. The unit accepts 16V-30V input, the amperage at 20V is just an example. HDPLEX achieved this by reducing the input cap from 3300uF to 1540uF. Another improvement in Version 2.1 of the 400W DC-ATX ... the 4-pin output for SATA devices has been changed to a 6-pin output which now supports 3.3V devices like the EVGA Nu Audio card. The prior version supported only 5V or 12V.
  11. Thanks for the clarification. That is obviously an attractive deal. So I pay $50 for unlimited and that $50 includes download of AL 2.0. Or I pay $25 for AL 2.0 before October 30 and my subscription is extended for a year. So unlimited really only costs an extra $25. Is this right? So now the question is ... How do I pay you the $50 to upgrade from yearly to unlimited? There is no such selection in the drop down in the AudioLinux store. Similarly, there's no entry in the dropdown to pay $25 to download AL 2.0 ... should people just select the $25 AL extra year of support?
