  1. Thanks for the success reports, I'm gonna have to give it another go after installing latest sonicOrbiter card. It appears I don't need 1.4 model to do this, which is cool. It does beg the question though, of differences in the 1.3 and 1.4 versions. Is this info in this thread somewhere? I can't find it on Sonore site.
  2. Thanks Jesus. Were, or are, there compatibility problems with Schiit? I thought I read it somewhere and I couldn't get mR to see Gungnir. As I recall, I needed to send mine in for updates beyond where the memory card took it. Is that correct?
  3. Jesus or others, I wonder if you could take a moment and catch me up on the latest for microRendu? I don't frequent forums and really don't stay up-to-date, I'm afraid. Truth is, I'm not a constant futzer and for the most part, want things to plug and play. A couple of years ago, I purchased a new microRendu and an Uptone LPS-1. This attached to a W4S DAC2. As I recall it was a little quirky to set up and work with JRiver, but I got it done. I remember doing an update of a memory card, but have never sent it back for further updates. A year or so ago, I purchased a Schi

  5. Hypex Ncore Monoblocks Many will know what these are, but for those who don’t: Hypex Ncore NC400 amplifier modules Hypex SMPS600N400 power supply Ghent Audio cases Homebrew stands/bases These came into a near fever pitch popularity a few years ago and were heralded as a reference quality class D amplifier. Many manufacturers currently use Hypex modules in their sometimes spendy class D amp offerings. Rather than go into adjective slinging depth here which I'm not great at, may I suggest a Google search will net you hours of reading. Reviewed by several, they can
  6. Many thanks Boris, I'm ordering one today!
  7. Boris, I'd sure appreciate it. I asked the same question of Pure and have gotten no response. I'd rather not buy one just to find out. Peter
  8. Boris, I wonder if you might be able to answer the following question, given you own this? I'm thinking I'd like one of these for my shop, to stream Pandora (or the like) or access my music hard drive (which lives in the house) wirelessly. I'm doing the above now through my iphone4 with headphone jack out to RCAs on back of receiver. All this gear is in the bathroom so I don't shower it with sawdust. I kinda stumbled onto a "feature" I wasn't expecting, but really like. If my Bluetooth earpiece is on and I get a call, it rings over the speakers and interrupts music until I hang up, then
  9. That's funny! On another note, Morphine's name always seem so appropiate. The music was, so....morphine-esque
  10.

  11. Joel, I'm afraid I don't have a definitive answer for you, but perhaps some food for thought. I never got the card I had working and have abandoned it for now. There are some chipset drivers available from Intel that might have had an effect. I've since downloaded and installed them, but don't have the card any longer so can't test. If I were to imagine a troubleshooting routine, the first thing I'd do is install the card in my desktop and see if I could get it functional there. If that was a go, I'd attach it with the cable riser to see if if there was a problem there. This would eliminat
  12. That's interesting! Can you point me to more info on successful inplementations? WFS won't confirm compatibility and Simple Design just says it's a known issue.
  13. Eloise, I'm told that the card is incompatible with DACs using the M2Tech usb receiver. DAC-2 is one of the "can't-get-there from-here" components Sonore lists on their site. If I'm not mistaken, the only difference between OSs is that Win7 requires drivers for the card and Win 8 doesn't.
  14. I see Newegg has these in stock now. Anybody giving it a whirl? I'm looking at possibly replacing W4S DAC-2 so I can utilize SOtM PCIe card. Would appreciate any feedback.
  15. I was just on the phone with W4S yesterday, they're up to 1.6 firmware now, but still questionable compatibility with the SOtM. My card is on the way back to Simple Design, never did get it working. I didn't know there was more than one version of the card, is it available in the PCIe format?
