  1. Now that I've read your own post on Head-Fi in addition to another older one on this site, most likely it's more about the initial handshaking between SOtM (as well as Matrix) and Mytek https://www.head-fi.org/threads/audiophile-usb-pcie-cards.944897/ https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/25353-mytek-new-dac-brooklyn/page/62/?tab=comments#comment-556254 While Elfidelity might look similar to those PCIe cards, it's actually going through the onboard USB header (does it sound more like a direct path of some sort?) and perhaps the handshake could be more consist
  2. Sometimes Device Manager might contain too many inactive USB devices and then things could get quite tricky, usually I would simply clean things up and then it's good to go. Unplug everything from all USB ports except for keyboard / mouse, then launch Device Manager and do this Go through every single category and find all "grayed out" or "dimmed" items that are related to USB, just highlight each and every item (yes, only one item at a time and it's a PITA) and delete those USB-related items one by one. Make sure that you'll untick / uncheck the box whenev
  3. FYI - here's the official statement in 2019 https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?id=209346612428600&story_fbid=2557407504289154 And then here's the verdict https://www.instagram.com/p/B3RS56aJzuz/ https://www.instagram.com/p/B3Wa_vkJpY3/ https://www.instagram.com/p/B3Y9gvtpMf3/

  5. Now we could add JCAT USB Card XE thanks to the PCIe 2.0 x1 slot on the I/O board https://www.cnx-software.com/2020/10/19/raspberry-pi-cm4-cm4lite-modules/

  7. Please check with John and find out if there were any potential issues just in case, in theory that's supposed to be feasible but we don't wanna damage anything while the warranty might be voided. If John were giving the green light to do so, it's fine as long as your Y-cable looks similar to this one Another one wouldn't work so well since we'll need an adapter, though I'm pretty sure that you're already powering your U192ETL with something that's closer to the picture as shown above Since we're talking about 4 USB ports here, theoretically your
  8. Most likely it depends on how good (or how bad as shown below) your laptop really is, so far DA96ETF didn't seem to be too sensitive to its source of power but unfortunately UPL96ETL really suffered the poor power quality from a laptop https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/24966-ecdesigns/page/47/?tab=comments#comment-1084012 https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/24966-ecdesigns/page/47/?tab=comments#comment-1084074 https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/24966-ecdesigns/page/47/?tab=comments#comment-1084670 Other than th
  9. Hmm, UPL96ETL → DA96ETF → QA390 versus QA390 as a standalone unit would be a mighty interesting comparison.

  11. There were some posts on another thread where the Schröder Method was mentioned https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/30376-a-novel-way-to-massively-improve-the-sq-of-computer-audio-streaming/page/665/?tab=comments#comment-1058990 https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/30376-a-novel-way-to-massively-improve-the-sq-of-computer-audio-streaming/page/702/?tab=comments#comment-1084944 Now that we've got dual switches (or more) in series, dual regulators in series, as well as dual Xeon to dedicate a specific (physical) processor for HQP and NAA respectively, what i
  12. I hope that Rajiv (and others) would allow this reply to stay here, or else it could moved to another thread. Maybe take a look at this table here first, obviously Canare L-8CHD is king in terms of attenuation (all the to the right) https://www.canare.co.jp/en/prodcont/coaxspec.php And then L-8CUHD turned out to be even better than L-8CHD http://www.canare.com/ProductItemDisplay.aspx?productItemID=256 Available by the foot with matching 75Ω BNC connectors https://www.markertek.com/product/l-8cuhd-bk-ft/canare-l-8cuhd-75-oh

  14. IMHO HDBaseT 4K transmissions should require a much more stringent quality when compared to audio transmissions, Belden seemed to be able to deliver their claims with 2183R http://info.belden.com/hubfs/ESD-White-Papers/Cabling to Support 4K UHD HDBaseT Applications.pdf#page=10 CAT Cable Testing https://lightware.com/support/lightware-testing-lab/cable-testing BELDEN 2183R https://lightware.com/media/wysiwyg/Support/Lightware_Testing_Lab/Cable_Testing/BELDEN_2183R_cable_test.pdf
  15. FYI - interesting read about comparisons between Sablon 2020 USB / Ethernet and Final Touch Audio USB / Ethernet cables here https://www.head-fi.org/threads/innuos-phoenix-usb-reclocker.942986/#post-15893721 Recently the owner of CelAudio tested about 20 brands of cables with quite a few switches. Their own nSwitch, Telegärtner M12 Switch Gold, Melco S100, enterprise-grade Extreme10G switch, two different H3C switches, EtherREGEN, and finally a switch from Ruijie Networks http://www.headphoneclub.com/thread-739319-1-1.html Among those
