  1. I like Jriver and am used to its interface. It is a known issue, as you all know, that there can be clicks or anomalies between song transitions with some gear and Dacs for DSD files or when going from different song file resolutions. I actually had zero issues with my OPPO 105 streaming. Very few if any with an OPP Sonica DAC, but some minor ones with a PS Audio DS using a Bridge II card. It works fine without any issues using USB input. I think the other element for DSD is what process was used for ripping to .dsf.
  2. A few questions about the Lumin U1 mini. I am moving on from a Bridge II in my PS Audio Directstream Sr. Looking at used Lumin U1 minis and Sonora Ultrarendu or Opticaltrendu, possibly a Aries G1. What is good used price on U1 mini with an external linear power supply? Does it work with JRIVER?? Is it clear step up in SQ from the Bridge II? Thanks.
  3. Oppo Sonica has network capabilities built in and the ESS chip you want. It's excellent and some NOS out there and used. Under $900

  6. Got the ER setup direct to the Bridge II in the PS AUDIO DS. TBH it sounded very very good before through the OPPO 105 ethernet input>Coax> PS Audio DS with no ER. Early impression is slightly blacker background, slightly better definition on low end. JRIVER is a little glitchier, however, with the Bridge II card at song transitions than with the OPPO 105 Ethernet input. I had heard the Bridge II could be finicky.

  9. Thanks to you both for the reply. I was not sure about the Teddy Pardot (the seller said he ran the ER using it) after I read on the Uptone product info that the original Uptone LPS- 1 7v setting did not have enough current. [Note: The original UltraCap LPS-1, with top setting of 7V, does not have enough current for the EtherREGEN. The UltraCap LPS-1.2, with its 9V and 12V settings can easily power an EtherREGEN.] I will install the Bridge II. I have had it sitting here and some people claim having it installed in the PS Audio DS hurts overall SQ. I have n
  10. New ER user here. Assessing the impact from my previous setup with a generic cheap TP link switch to my OPPO 105 Ethernet input > PS Audio Directstream Dac via coax. Couple questions. I am using a Teddy Pardot 7v lps. Is that enough power? I do have the stock Uptone 7.5v amps power supply on the way from the seller I got this from. I also have a Bridge II Ethernet card I can put in the PS Audio DS. Would that be better than using the coax route through the OPPO 105? Thanks.

    Am selling my EVS modded OPPO Sonica Dac that I have had the last few months. It is an extraordinary flagship ESS Sabre 9038Pro based Dac with the ability to also stream audio without external devices. I used it with Jriver with great success streaming all audio formats including DSD. All specs listed here: https://www.oppodigital.com/sonica-dac/ The modifications were done by well known audio engineer Ric Schulz (EVS Audio). Retail on unit was $800. The mods were $800. This is the Single Ended version. They are listed here in this link. http://tweakaudio.com/EVS-2/Oppo_Sonica_DAC_mods.html I am second owner. Unit is in 9/10 cosmetic condition. There is tiny paint finish bare spot on upper left corner. Unit works perfectly and comes with optional OPPO remote which comes in handy. It also can use an Android phone app to control it, but that is a little finicky to be honest. I compared it side by side to my well regarded OPPO 105 unit and it is better in all respects by a fair margin. Very detailed, great extension, large sound stage in my setup. Asking $895 OBO including shipping and fees via PayPal. Will be hard pressed to find a unit that does all of these functions and sounds this good at this price. Actually compares very favorably to a PS Audio DirectStream I am using now.
