  1. Ouch. I sold my DV-79AVi-s because I thought i.Link was somehow encrypted for just Pioneer's use -- and the internet had scant details on it at the time. (And seemingly still does). Do you know of a way to convert i.Link data to something less specialized like SPDIF or USB audio?
  2. Thanks, @Superdad! Regarding my second question, is it enough for ER to support flow-control, or does the rest of the network hardware have to as well? (I would hope that the packets, like the spice, must flow... and thus if an endpoint says 'wait a minute!' then the flow-control request will be dutifully delivered to the source even by the least intelligent of ethernet devices...)
  3. @Superdad, if we're connecting a streamer (e.g., UltraRendu) via the EtherREGEN's 'B' port, does the ER provide all the flow control support we might need (and thus obviate the need for an oM Deluxe) when utilizing HQ Player NAA? Or does every device that touches the packets all the way to the server running HQP have to understand Flow-Control Pause packets?
  4. Great work, @Nenon (et al.)! One of the challenges with big, heavy, expensive boxes like this is handling them safely when moving them in and out of the rack. I see from the CAD design that the bottom and top are flat. That will help keep the heat sinks from poking into the palms (yay). Including some hand-hold cutouts somewhere along the middle of each side might be nice if there's a way to integrate them.
  5. Ah, I've only read Part 1 so far! Looking forward to the rest (I do see them published already).
  6. As one who has run live sound for both music and theater productions and has dabbled in recording, I am looking forward to this series with great interest, @gmgraves! I've often wondered the same as you -- why so many older recordings sound marvelous, and so many newer ones sound comparatively lifeless. Arguments about the Loudness Wars and such find their place here, but even records that are not mastered to sound LOUD are still lacking a lot of that joie de vivre. I'm buckled in and looking forward to where you take us next!
  7. I'm planning to pick up a V14D for my Farad as well. For now I'm using a tried and true Nordost Blue Heaven. The V14D bests it in numerous ways (CCI Noise Filtration, 14ga vs BH's 16ga, KPIP treatment, etc.), while the BH has higher copper purity (99.99% vs 99.9999%, for what that's worth). Nordost also has MMF, which is an older trick, but still a good one. I still suspect the V14D would win on the bench or even in a blind taste test. I hope to get the opportunity to host a shootout between these two, but right now my system is in a bit of an upheaval. I've also been c
  8. The GI I am referring to provided by the Chord Qutest. Qutest's signal input and power input are galvanically isolated, but I was unwittingly defeating that when I had 2 power supplies (batteries) and 3 components. I was running a USB line and a DC line from one battery to power the Qutest and to provide juice for the ultraRendu. In doing so, I was creating a ground connection between the USB input side (since the USB signal comes from the Rendu) and the power input side via the battery powering them both. The other battery was being used to power the Uptone LPS 1.2 at a higher vol
  9. @JohnSwenson could you elaborate a bit on why you favor them? (I’m just wondering if your endorsement is of a technical / measured performance nature, or just a “looks good, built sturdy, nice grip, decent price” kind of recommendation. )
  10. I have a Qutest as well (but no MScaler yet...) being fed by a battery supply (PowerAdd Pilot Pro 5 for the 5V power). The signal side is fed by an Uptone LPS 1.2 + ISO REGEN combo. (The LPS 1.2 is being fed by a separate PowerAdd Pilot Pro 5 battery to maintain galvanic isolation). I recently upgraded my Sonore ultraRendu's power from the DC output of one of the batteries to a 6V Farad Super3 [w/ Furutech + SR Orange fuse] using the standard tin-plated copper output cable (and I used a Nordost Blue Heaven power cable for input) and the results were profound. Seriously impressive,
  11. But that's only in the Northern Hemisphere, right? 😂 (Just kidding..)
