  1. I moved away from home built server since commercial servers are evolving and becoming easy to use and retain great sonic qualities. The power supply for this unit created noise in my system so I tossed it. Any good power supply would work great. I decided not to replace it since the new owner would wish to use their preferred power supply. This unit has many goodies and evolved into 3-4K in hardware and software. Some are listed below.... audiophile optimizer windows server 2012 r2 paul pang red cable 80 gb SLC SSD jcat usb card
  2. I have two of these Glass Toslink cables. I no longer need them $85 new. $35. No issues. Change in gear setup made these redundant. Two cables are available - $35 each. Shipping. $8.
  3. Another review with favorable review from these unknown cable: http://www.theaudiobeat.com/equipment/allnic_audio_int_sc.htm Having first hand look at various manufacturers from Korea. I like what is being offered these days. Highly recommended.
  4. Greetings,To any current owner who has a pre - late 2017 D5000, I have a new output board and tubes that would improve sonics and lengthen tube life.I have one set and will ship. There is no fee. Allnic contacted me and I had sold the dac but the new owner never replied. I would like to see this board go to good use.John.
  5. This cable was from my personal system and used for 5 months. I purchased a TotalDac 12 which uses AES/EBU. This cable is amazing on all fronts. So much so I replaced my entire loom. The cable is like new. I am willing to offer a return guarantee. Give it 30 days and if you do not like it, I will refund your money on the cable return. Just cover shipping in both directions and any PayPal fees. By my experience, their power cords and speaker cable have even greater effect but this digital cable best what I had before, including Audience AU24se, Empirical Audio Reference silver BNC cable and Antipodes coax digital cable. I sold my entire Antipodes Loom for these cables. The TotalDac was expensive, so you may have seen a ton of stuff up for sale recently. This cable is just an afterthought. $1700 USD new. Price $950 Firm. Key Features Zero Loss Technology defined: Allnic Audio’s specialty technology for eliminating audio cable signal loss by minimizing three resistances: Linkage Resistance, Contact Resistance, and Wire Resistance. Linkage Resistance minimized: Allnic uses 1000 degree hot melt welding of cable terminations and wire; no solder, no clamps. Contact Resistance minimized: three innovative contact improvement methods, one each for our power cables, speaker cables, and interconnect cables. Furthermore, Allnic does proper heat treatment for longer contact pressure and uses Allnic’s patented double-bladed spade speaker terminations. Every termination for XLR, RCA, and banana is split into multi-faces with an inner elastomer core that constantly applies outward pressure to those faces. Wire Resistance optimized: After incessant technical test and listening sessions, we have found the optimum thickness of wire for each type of cable. Mu-metal shield: All other audio cable manufacturers use copper and/or silver shielding for signal cables. These are effective only for electrically induced noise, not for magnetically caused noise. Allnic uses Mu-metal as its braided shield for all Allnic’s interconnect, digital and phono cables. Mu-metal shielding provides complete protection from all electromagnetic noise, a world-premiere in the audio industry. MRCT®. Mid-Range Control Technology: Allnic considers that an exaggerated, protruding mid-range is the most formidable obstacle to harmonious signal transfer. Allnic’s MRCT uses metal platings for slight mid-range “braking” and heavier wire gauges for low frequency transmission, and controls capacitance to ensure usually evasive superbly realistic high frequency reproduction. http://6moons.com/audioreviews2/allnic3/1.html http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews2/allnic/1.htmlhttp://www.audiophilia.com/reviews/2...00-power-cablehttps://www.hifiplus.com/articles/al...l-3000-cables/ http://www.audioht.co.kr/atl/view.asp?a_id=5096 https://www.hificlub.co.kr/web10/bo...lid=100&f_lid=100886&table=brd_10023&ishtml=n https://www.hificlub.co.kr/web10/bo...lid=100&f_lid=100917&table=brd_10023&ishtml=nhttp://www.audioht.co.kr/atl/view.asp?a_id=6211http://allnicaudio.com/?page_id=955
  6. If someone has this block already or does not want all the cables. Each cable I will sell for $100 each. $10 shipping. Block I will sell with remainder.
  7. Here are more images. LPS can handle up to 4 A but has 3 A fuse. upper port is signal in and lower is signal out. My price is firm.
  8. Sorry for the late response...my email blew up over this. One spade cable left. $105 plus shipping.
  9. I bought this to run my Empirical Audio Dac by Wi-Fi to Ethernet converter. I never used it once. This is a new item. Paul Hynes/Steve Nugent design. $1000 new, $800 shipped, PayPal or bank transfer.
  10. GreetingsI decided to sell this system which I purchased because I had limited time on my main system. One of my kids was suffering from chronic frequent migraines and to play music would be misery for him. This system seemed the perfect solution. I have had at most 5 hours on the Stax 009 BHSE. My life is just too busy to sit and listen. The unit is effectively new. This is the system Vincent used to voice TotalDac. BHSE faceplate is silver. Pictures posted this weekend.He now is living with his biological father full time as I no longer am partnered with his mom.I considered keeping this wonderful system but decided to sell off any not used gear. Price is $7500 for the Stax 009, BHSE. New: $6900 for Amp and $3500 for Stax 009.If you are interested in some relatively rare EL34 NOS match quads I never used, email me as well.
  11. This unit has under 200 hours on it. It does NOT run ROON. I have pressed for this but the manufacturer has valid reason not to implement it. Check out Empirical Audio threads on Audiocircle for best implementation in your system. I live close to Steve Nugent and everything is current, with all the recent innovative mods. The main board is in like new condition. The Ethernet board has been replaced with the new updated board. The reason for selling is not being used. The unit has sat for almost a year. I am simply to busy to enjoy it so I have decided to sell it. I imagine there will be a re-break in period. Email with Questions. $7900! Retails for $13,000.

I will also sell my Empirical Audio Diamond SX with Duelund caps and ethernet input which negates the need for a server perse. Price is $7500 for the Stax 009, BHSE.If you are interested in some relatively rare EL34 NOS match quads I never used, email me as well.Dac will be advertised in a different add.
  12. My understanding of physics regarding electricity albeit decent has its limitations. I remain somewhat quiet on the topic because I choose not post information that may indeed be false. The cables have received decent reviews in the last year and are new this part of the world. I have tried them and was impressed enough to post here. Seems they have demo sets to try and stellar return policy if you purchase new and decide to return them. Some aspects regarding construction are novel and may be the reason they are set apart from ones I have used in the past: Pure Silver versions of Wireworld, Audioquest, in addition to Antipodes Reference which one of the reviewers had the same cable currently and same assessment. High Fidelity Ultimate Reference, Audience AU24sx, Nordost to name a few. Factor in alternating current noise, RF radiation, equipment, system design, room implementation and aural interpretation -- results vary. Some reviews here I found beneficial and others poor investments. There are too many variables at play. These cables are offered at no risk trial and I recommend them.
  13. I do not want to give my best guess answer so I will ask directly. Until then.... From the Hammertone Website: Mu-metal shielding for true protection from EMI While all other audio cable manufacturers use copper and/or silver shields for signal cables, Allnic uses ‘Mu-metal’ as braided shield for its interconnect and digital cables (RCA & XLR) – a world-premiere in the audio industry. Traditional copper and/or silver mesh shields provide effective protection against electrically generated noise, but they are ineffective against magnetically induced noise. This is because magnetically generated interference freely penetrates both copper and silver. Only Mu-metal (a nickel alloy material) can protect the audio signal from both electronically and magnetically induced noise. Test data show that Mu-metal shielding reduces electromagnetic noise to less than 1/30th of what braided copper shield allows, down -30dB in comparison.
