  1. Could @Marcin_gps please kindly chime in? Many thanks. I could only find their SODIMM version but NOT the DIMM ones we're looking for http://eflash.apacerus.com/spec/DRAM/75.CA4GJ.G010B SA-B Indus. HF.pdf http://eflash.apacerus.com/spec/DRAM/newnew75.B93GJ.G010B DDR4 SODIMM 2400-17 512x8 4GB SA-E Indus. HF.pdf Let's take a look at the prices of SODIMM flavor for now, make sure that we're staying away from Mouser once we could get our hands on the DIMM counterpart https://www.memory4less.com/apacer-8gb-sodimm-pc19200-75-ca4gj-g010b https://www.memory4less.com/apacer-16gb-sodimm-pc19200-75-da4gj-g010b https://www.soselectronic.com/products/apacer/75-b93gj-g010b-307859 https://www.soselectronic.com/products/apacer/75-ca4gj-g010b-307861 https://www.soselectronic.com/products/apacer/75-da4gj-g010b-307862 https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Apacer/75B93GJG010B?qs=w%2Fv1CP2dgqriT37rKQCk2A%3D%3D https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Apacer/75CA4GJG010B?qs=w%2Fv1CP2dgqq9BRO0ZulRnA%3D%3D https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Apacer/75DA4GJG010B?qs=w%2Fv1CP2dgqqEEqc4W1O%2BNA%3D%3D Actually it's gonna be essential to figure out how much RAM do we really need for Euphony with ramroot enabled, and then there's also RAM Caching to be taken into consideration.
  2. TRPTK Music Label - Positive Feedback https://positive-feedback.com/interviews/trptk-music-label/ https://www.reddit.com/r/audiophile/comments/99dng7/our_mastering_room_in_utrecht_the_netherlands/ https://www.reddit.com/r/audiophile/comments/bu2qz3/trptk_is_doing_a_studio_tour_video_series_wed/ Even recording engineers got it right? https://trptk.com/shop/a-fearful-fairy-tale/ https://trptk.com/blog/recording-blog-maya-fridman-2/ https://trptk.nativedsd.com/albums/TTK0029-shalygin-canti-dinizio-e-fine https://trptk.com/shop/shalygin-canti-dinizio-e-fine/ https://trptk.com/blog/recording-blog-helena-basilova/ https://trptk.nativedsd.com/albums/TTK0041-a-fearful-fairy-tale
  3. Apple Music Launches Apple Digital Masters, New Initiative Combining Its Hi-Res 'Mastered' Collection https://www.billboard.com/articles/business/8526675/apple-music-launches-apple-digital-masters Apple Hi-Res Streaming Has Arrived With Apple Digital Masters https://www.hypebot.com/hypebot/2019/08/apple-hi-res-streaming-has-arrived-with-apple-digital-masters.html That's quite appealing because of the costs, definitely a winner if that were true.
  4. Thanks buddy, additional pictures were posted here https://www.reddit.com/r/intelnuc/comments/coiee6/next_gen_enthusiast_nuc_phantom_canyon_unveiled/
  5. Recently Marcin went from previous generation of Apacer 75.B93H7.G000B to their latest wide temp. model https://www.apacer.com/News/Detail/DDR4High-PerformanceWide-TempMemory http://jplay.eu/forum/index.php?/topic/2786-ram-adventures-extremely-interesting-results/page-2#entry49239 Mostly likely B93H0 should be a typo, it's good for 0 °C ≤ TC ≤ +85°C http://eflash.apacerus.com/spec/DRAM/75.B93H7.G000B.pdf#page=12 http://eflash.apacerus.com/spec/DRAM/75.B93H7.G000B DDR4 ECC DIMM 2400-17 512x8 4GB SA-E Anti-Sulfuration HF.pdf#page=12 Even that would cost $130 for 4GB, imagine how much we're gonna pay for the new one https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/Apacer/75B93H7G000B?qs=0lQeLiL1qya80yN9UFKvQw%3D%3D This is what Marcin was talking about and it's announced back in April https://industrial.apacer.com/en-ww/DRAM/DDR4-Wide-Temp.-UDIMM Maybe that's the next best thing when compared to what we're getting from Taiko Audio? Though there's always something even better that could go all the way up to +125°C https://www.micron.com/products/dram/dram-for-automotive Not that we'll reach that kinda temperature by any means, it's just a matter of stringent quality that's gotta require (much) better materials in the first place.
  6. The very first Xeon NUC http://www.fanlesstech.com/2019/08/the-very-first-xeon-nuc.html Intel Quartz Canyon NUC will support Xeon chips, discrete graphics https://liliputing.com/2019/08/intel-quartz-canyon-nuc-will-support-xeon-chips-discrete-graphics.html Intel® Xeon® E Processor https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/series/134861/intel-xeon-e-processor.html Internal PSU could be an obstacle, though.
  7. Speaking of Taiko Audio SGM Extreme Server, having a pair of Epyc / Xeon with dozens of cores could have to potential to be yet another game changer based on Roy's journey. Basically he's going from quad core Celeron J1900 to quad core i7-8650U, followed by hexa core i7-8700K. Since passive cooling wouldn't work for those server class processors with much higher power consumption, are water cooling systems any good for building music servers (for REAL this time because of both motherboard as well as Epyc / Xeon processors) in terms of the noise involved? Actually the whole enchilada could very well be something that's gonna look quite different from conventional servers, here's an example https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1090654-water-cooled-pc-conference-table/ Actually there's also a little something that's more "down to earth" https://www.hydra-shop.com/shop/ They also have a relatively compact model for E-ATX motherboards https://www.hydra-shop.com/product/slimdesk/
  8. I found Sorrow446 on Head-Fi etc. and all issues with music streaming services were solved. It's even greater to repurpose PSU for the broadband router and put that somewhere else. Life is good once you've found someone who's such a lifesaver.
  9. All outputs of Gustard C16 are sharing the same 50Ω impedance, therefore you could add stuff like SOtM tX-USBUltra with 50Ω reference clock input option with the right clock cable. Then connect the USB output of tX-USBUltra to the USB input of your DAC afterwards. Borrowing this list of gears with either 75Ω (adapter required and degradation should be taken into consideration IMHO) or 50Ω reference clock inputs https://www.hiendy.com/hififorum/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=130889 It's mission critical to purchase a great clock cable for Gustard C16 that's as short as possible for the sake of minimizing degradation, though stuff like Habst would cost more than the clock itself already. The performance of the clock should largely depend on the quality of its PSU as well, otherwise it ain't worth all the extra expenses IMHO. Once again it might be wiser to invest in a tried and true PSU feeding one of those gaming motherboards with boat load of (direct) VRM phases.
  10. It's summer holiday until August 11th https://www.sotm-audio.com/sotmwp/english/2019-summer-holiday-notice/ Supposedly they'll attend the annual Hi-End Audio Visual Show here in Hong Kong but the uncertainty (due to political turmoil) ain't getting any better so far. Safety could very well be a concern because of increasingly serious conflict between protesters and law enforcement. Basically the price tag should be well over $1,000 once we factor in the costs of adding sCLK-EX while relatively long clock cables will inevitably result in degradation. Besides, not sure if they're gonna go for this XDPE132G5C controller (i.e. same as the direct 14 + 2 = 16-phase design of Gigabyte's X570 AORUS XTREME) in order to avoid using doublers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qszxxIumJOQ#t=178 https://www.infineon.com/cms/en/about-infineon/press/market-news/2019/INFPMM201903-052.html As Rajiv and Roy pointed out before, the importance of power should be (far?) greater than that of clocking when it comes to building music servers. IMHO it's also quite interesting to read this regarding the Euphony+Stylus combo https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55873-shootout-at-the-linux-corral-audiolinux-vs-euphony/page/8/?tab=comments#comment-960794 Not to mention that we could also consider ECC RAM since it's supported by Ryzen 3000 Series, no such luck with Intel unless we're going for Xeon or Core i3 with the right chipset.
  11. FYI - $659 Gustard C16 is coming later this month with six 50Ω 10MHz reference clock outputs, half of them were labeled "Gentle" and then "Vivid" for the rest https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=599578098479 https://www.facebook.com/GustardAudio/posts/1279609272216674 https://www.facebook.com/GustardAudio/posts/1279610382216563 https://www.facebook.com/GustardAudio/posts/1283198621857739
  12. Maybe markup wasn't the right word then? MSRP is $50K in US, while it's more like $33K in Japan at the moment. Does it sound like some kinda healthy margin or what? You've got like 3 years of warranty (that ain't transferable but fairly understandable) and that's pretty much it http://www.esoteric-usa.com/warranty.php And then it's gonna cost $2K for a trip back to Japan plus hundreds of dollars for everything else, their repair work actually got contracted out as well https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/problem-with-esoteric-service Everything in Europe was sold to Aqipa GmbH last year since Gibson got incredibly screwed, the future of TEAC (and Esoteric etc.) will depend on the outcome of their restructuring https://www.tennessean.com/story/money/2018/10/23/nashville-gibson-guitar-company-names-jc-curleigh-its-new-ceo/1737836002/ Supposedly they're facing as much as half a billion dollars in debt while the reorganization allowed the company to wipe out hundreds of million dollars worth of debt. Somehow both numbers from 2018 and 2019 seemed to be the same, therefore Gibson Holdings Inc was still considered TEAC's parent company as we're getting that 54.84% number twice in a row https://www.teac.co.jp/downloads/corporate/2018/20180628_clhoaj7q.pdf https://www.teac.co.jp/downloads/corporate/2019/20190627_flgkm25q.pdf It's almost like business as usual once they've got "bailed out" by KKR, and then brand spankin' new CEO actually tried to sue their pants off https://ultimateclassicrock.com/gibson-sues-dean-guitar/ With that kinda track record, are you still planning to blow 50 grand or what?
  13.
