  1. Hi Happypappy, The Modius can be powered two ways, from the USB input port, or from the micro-USB power port on the back of the case. In this second mode there is small power draw from the USB input port. The Modius is an unbelievable DAC for $200. I enjoyed hearing it. Larry
  2. Interesting, yes you are trading the Hdplex SMPS for the onboard SMPS. My guess is that the Hdplex sounds better, but I'd try both if possible. Does your SJ LPS output >= 16 volts for the Hdplex?
  3. I would always recommend a split power rig with a 12 volt 10 amp LPS rail powering the CPU/EPU and a 19volt 10 amp rail powering an Hdplex DC to DC ATX converter. Used this way I can't hear a difference between the 400 watt or 800 watt DC to DC ATX models. The new 300 Watt Hdplex LPS handles both rails nicely and sounds great. Caveat- I haven't tried this with high current demand up-sampling software.
  4. Hi Ron, 5 years ago I would have said the Corning cable was the way to go. The Corning cable sound wasn't great and two of mine had reliability problems. Today a better solution called the Monoprice SlimRun USB-A to USB-A Female 3.0 Extension Cable is a fiber optic at 32.8ft. The difference is that can be externally powered at 5 volts. List price is $132. Until recently I used two in my system, one to connect to a wifi network extender. The second to a USB 3.0 hard disk enclosure. They sound terrific especially if powered by a good LPS. I have retired mine for another solution asI didn't need the distance, and have put both cables on sale here on AS in the accessories section of the classified section. Take a look. Larry

  13. Somehow "good" was turned into "superior". By "good", I meant that it works, the opposite of "bad" meaning it doesn't work. I have both. I am not interested in fiber cable "rolling" per se, but if someone finds a "superior" cable that could be interesting.
  14. The Finisar SFPs purchased on Ebay for my use all come from vendors in the US. I have never purchased an SFP from India, and most likely never will.
  15. Hi Kenny, Thanks for your comment. Give me a few weeks and I will share more details. There are a few device configuration permutations that need to be checked before providing more details. Larry
