  1. Gee Peter, I thought this cable was all about experimentation! What am I missing? Yes, brush off that analyzer please.
  2. Thanks Peter. It was me. I first wrote about this Lush^2 configuration on February 25th, 2020: "Yesterday a MuMetal braid was added to my .4 meter Lush 2 cable. It was initially configured as two jssg360s. That was an improvement, but something was missing. Tying all 4 ends together fixed that, and the results is more image weight and clarity across the spectrum." Later on the comb on the DAC end tying the fourth shield to the others accidentally became disconnected. This wasn't noticed for a while. Later without thinking, I reconnected it and noticed a loss of SQ. Her
  3. Are these targets or actual measurements? Nonetheless this is great to see. It has always struck me as odd that power supply measurements for audio applications are not regularly quoted. While listening will always inform a purchase decision, power supplies bring out the objectivist in me. There is no excuse for not providing these details for any audio supply.
  4. Hi Kevin, Looking at your setup diagram I would not say an active UPS is a good idea. Simple and passive works best here. On the AC side I have two layers of isolation transformers, one big balanced IT for the analog gear also feeding individual isolation transformers for each of 4 LPSes feeding a digital component.

    For sale is a Lush^2 USB 2. cable with a simple, easily reversible modification. Price is $200 shipping included CONUS only. This second generation cable features tunable layers of 3 shields that can be connected together in (100s or is it 1000's) of different combinations including connections to the USB shells on either end. On top of that a fourth layer of shielding has been added and connected at the source end for an amazing increase in SQ. This fourth layer is easy to remove and re-add for those that want to experiment. Months of experimentation lead to this configuration. If preferred, the fourth shield can be removed before shipping.

  7. Hi Blackmorec, Many thanks for your post. I agree with you, this is exactly the "place' for a post of this type. Thanks for sharing your "novel" solution and related listening experience. Out of curiosity, the Tplink RE650 sold here in the US has a built in AC power supply. How does your SJ supply connect DC power to it? Is there a DC power input jack, or did you hack the repeater? What did I miss? Thanks again, Larry
  8. Hi cat6man, With little squeezelite experience, I can't say which of the four possible permutations of core isolation in a 4 core box would yield the best SQ. You are going to have to try each one and have a listen. There is really no avoiding this. Don't forget to assign the squeezlite app to the non-OS core segment using the expert menu.
  9. Hi Peter, Is it correct to assume the black cable connects to the USB shell on both ends?
  10. You are right of course. Nevertheless your post made me think of how "thick or thin" an international border can be. You may be on to something.
  11. I'd look at the B450 boards as well. Some have two direct to CPU M.2 slots. I've never seen the same in a B550 board, unless I missed it.
  12. Hi cat6man, The AL menu should contain all you need. First create the isolated cores, one for the OS and one for apps. Next assign your app, squeezelite to run in the isolated core. Having said that, I couldn't tell you what will happen to your SQ if you do this. With two cores, you may be better off leaving things alone. This really depends on the squeezelite process architecture which I have never explored.
  13. LOL, the north west edge of the Geneva airport runway defines the Swiss border with France. So France to Geneva isn't a huge distance by any means, especially in fiber terms.
  14. Hi Cat6man, I used to configure AL with cpu isolation for Roon. Later Roon made a change in a new release and sound is better without the isolation. If you run Roon, I'd leave this alone. Larry
  15. My first audiophile system was purchased in NYC in 1984. This included a Naim 42 pre-amp powered by a SNAPS, with a Naim 110 Amplifier driving a pair of Linn Sara Isobarik speakers mounted on very heavy, spiky stands. I still have this system but haven't used it in a few years. My shopping was done in two stores, Sound by Singer in Manhattan and Innovative Audio in Brooklyn Heights. Both offered full systems. Both store owners, Andy Singer and Elliot Fishkin, met with me on multiple occasions before I decided to purchase the Naim system. I can't remember the offering from Sound b
