    USB DAC 5V handshake

    Thanks, that's reassuring enough.

    USB DAC 5V handshake

    Hi, I have a linear 5V 2A L-PSU with two outputs which is currently powering a CuBox-i. Between the Cubox I have a Y split USB adapter. Is it a good idea to use the other output for the 5V handshake? Or would this be the same as feeding the DAC with Cubox's 5V, defeating the purpose of an external clean 5V feed? Thanks, Ricardo

    Amazing Music of the World.

    Reminds me a bit of The Pogues:
  6. Hi, I wonder if someone could provide a step-by-step guide to achieving room correction using REW and HQ Player. I tried to find a tutorial but the information is scarce and spread all over the web... It's been years since I last used REW to measure the frequency response at the listening spot. I have a mic, REW and I'm ready to go. Thanks, Ricardo

    Is 100 Mbit/s Ethernet enough for audio?

    100 Mbit/s widens the choice options for my budget. I was thinking of getting one of these: https://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-4910_TL-R470T+.html https://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-4910_TL-R480T+.html
  8. I wish to replace my old BT router, probably with a wired-only unit. I store my files in a NAS, upconvert them to DSD128 in a laptop with HQ Player and feed the stream to a small NUC. NAS, laptop, NUC and switch can all do 1000 Mbit/s. Is 100 Mbit/s enough for an audio-only wired network? WIll it do DSD512?
  9. The second line of the report makes me want to give up reading: "The natural analog reproduction of the instruments". Really? And later: "the RME is able to present great measured values"... This is playground level... I wouldn't call it worthless but take it with a ton of salt nonetheless.
  10. I've tried with afp, cifs, nothing works, even though it can be access from the browser and works perfectly when attached directly to one of the macs. Lot's of people complaining about this on the wd and apple support websites. I've just sold it with a 10% loss...

    Still better SQ from CD.... Help..

    In my experience yes (but may depend on the performance of the DAC's USB input).

  13. Hi, I've just bought myself a brick... Found a new old stock WD My Cloud NAS at a nice price and transferred my iTunes libraries with the NAS directly connected to my desktop. Then I plugged it into my network only to find out that for a few years now these WD NAS can no longer be accessed from Mac OS. I now have two options: put the WD up for sale (at a loss) or buy a diskless Synology or QNAP and add the WD HDD (also at a loss). Is it possible to just drag and drop the HDD from the WD NAS to a new one? Will the new NAS format the HDD? Thanks, Ricardo
