  1. Ah, I've only read Part 1 so far! Looking forward to the rest (I do see them published already).
  2. 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!
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. @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. )
  6. 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,

    Excellent shape, works perfectly.

It's got a power filter and a femtosecond 'reclocker' circuit to spruce up any USB audio signal you pass through it. Check out John Darko's 'Fighting fit USB audio from the Wyred4Sound Recovery' for more info.I used it for a time to seriously enhance the USB output of my Sonore microRendu network streamer. I have since moved on to more expensive solutions, and this went back in the box. (I thought for a while I'd use it at my office, but then COVID hit and I've been stuck at home like the rest of us! C'est la vie.) It's time it found a new owner who will experience the joy of a femto clocked USB signal with cleaner power. Buyer pays shipping, handling, and paypal fees (add $15 to the price).

    “A true no-excuses, balanced, remote-control preamp. Switch between passive, differential buffer, and differential tube gain modes, enjoy the fine control of a 128-step relay-switched stepped attenuator volume control with perfect channel matching, and control it all from the comfort of your favorite chair."—Schiit websitePractically brand new in great condition! Works perfectly, very low hours.This gem is one of the later versions of the original Freya design (board version 1.2). I am the original owner. No apparent damage or scratches anywhere (it seems to be in “like new” condition to my eyes), but rating 9/10 just in case. Very low hours because it spent most of the last 3 years in its factory box. (We moved house shortly after I bought it and didn’t have a proper space (until recently) to set it up again)! This fun little pre-amp has kept me up listening on more than a few nights of late, much to my wife’s chagrin. I’ve been doing some tube rolling and you can get amazing changes in the quality and character of the sound with different tubes. The original factory tubes provided by Schiit are included (They appear to be Russian 6H8C (equivalent to 6SN7)).I’m only selling it because I have the newer “+” model on order. 🙂 Includes original box, manual, remote, power cord. Terms: All sales are final. No returns. Buyer to pay shipping from Redmond, WA (98052). Local pickup is available. Shipping dimensions are 21.0" × 13.0" × 7.5" (12.5 lbs.). Ships in the original factory box. Buyer pays shipping charges. Buyer pays transaction fees (I will accept PayPal, Square, Zelle, Venmo, and CashApp -- if you want an invoice to take advantage of things like PayPal's 0% financing, let me know). No warranty is expressed or implied.

  12. @The Computer Audiophile the images on this amazing resource article seem to have broken Is there a way you can repair them? Thanks!
  13. I’ve found that a linear power supply (in my case an LH Labs LPS4) and the PowerAdd Pilot Pro 5 battery in turn each made a positive impact on my musical enjoyment of the Qutest. (I haven’t done a strict A|B yet, but I can say that each offers noticeable sonic improvement over the stock wall wart.) Oh, and I had Ghent custom roll me a USB (power-only) JSSG360 A-to-micro-B cable plus a custom USB female to DC barrel plug (male) adapter so I could also use it with supplies like the UpTone LPS1.2. (Adapter is made of Neotech 7N 18AWG, one end of USB-A(female), another is Oyai
  14. Another nice find! I totally missed this entry by Darko. Economical and it has potential!
  15. Nice find! Believe it or not, I actually spent a bit of time doing searches for such things after the Artesania Damper won my ears over. I mean, it's fabulous and all, and I don't regret the purchase one bit... but if I consider the cost of outfitting a whole rack of gear with such things... it's gonna add up quick! A blank disc would need a smidge extra work, like a nice foam pad to keep the steel disc from marking up the surface beneath... even so, far cheaper than the Artesania Damper and similar in concept.
