  1. FYI - someone read Rajiv's recent review and he's inspired to try cascading multiple switches http://www.headphoneclub.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=736428&page=8#pid5136712 Buffalo BS-GS2016/A (modified) followed by Melco S100 (stock) turned out to be yet another winning combo, the improvements were VERY obvious when compared to what solo Melco S100 could accomplish on its own. There's also another Cisco switch sitting between FTTH and router but not sure if that were relevant. He's an owner of £55K dCS Vivaldi One http://www.headphoneclub.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=735399&page=10#pid5096518
  2. Here's a quote from Nuno https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/innuos-new-re-clocker/post?postid=1890251#1890251 And then another quote from @thyname https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/innuos-new-re-clocker/post?postid=1892072#1892072 Here's an owner of Chord DAVE (with Blu Mk. 2) and I guess that maybe there's more than one unit of DAVE https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/139202-innuos-phoenix-reclocker-is-in-the-house/page/4/?tab=comments#comment-2499908 Inserting PhoenixUSB between ZENith SE and stock DAVE (no "exotic" USB cables whatsoever) definitely worked like a charm, and that's behaving fairly similar to what Blu Mk. 2 could offer IMHO this is the most interesting part, PhoenixUSB didn't seem to matter anymore once that stock DAVE was changed to another modified DAVE Granted they didn't mention AudioWise OPTO-DX at all, while both "Plain Jane" USB cables might also have something to do with those results. Therefore it's hard to tell if RFI were playing a role or otherwise. BTW, they also shared some pictures of PhoenixUSB as shown below https://hifiwigwam.com/forum/topic/139202-innuos-phoenix-reclocker-is-in-the-house/page/6/?tab=comments#comment-2501669

  4. Maybe give LinkedIn a try? https://ca.linkedin.com/in/mark-mallinson-52108316 Here's their physical address in Canada http://highfidelity.pl/@main-469&lang=en Apparently it's put on sale since the beginning of March https://property.trovit.ca/listing/6-bedroom-house-for-sale-at-863-coronado-crescent-kelowna.1v1vZx1P1w1s13 https://vernon.britishcolumbia.remax.ca/listing/251529957-150112732/863-coronado-crescent-kelowna-bc-v1w-2k3/ Most likely we should know what to expect then?

  8. Well, didn't @hols (current owner of SGM Extreme) comment that Melco switch → Melco(*) switch → SOtM switch + Habst clock cable + Cybershaft OP21A might have the potential to achieve something that's very close to what SGM Extreme could offer? https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/melco-s100-audiophile-switch.29828/page-2#post-627616 Since that industrial grade Planet Technology MGB-TLX (with wide temperature range -40℃ to 75℃) turned out to be a winner while @romaz should be evaluating Telegärtner M12 Gold Switch soon, maybe it's also an interesting experiment to give their Industrial IP67 Rated IGS-5227-6MT-X a try since used ones are available on eBay for $299 or less? https://www.amazon.com/PLANET-Industrial-Managed-Ethernet-IGS-5227-6MT-X/dp/B075JD79VG https://www.ebay.com/itm/Planet-IGS-5227-6MT-X-Industrial-IP67-rated-6-Port-Gigabit-M12-Ethernet-Switch-/153780775951 https://planetechusa.com/product/igs-5227-6mt-x-industrial-ip67-rated-6-port-10-100-1000t-m12-managed-ethernet-switch/ Please take a look at the picture on eBay as well as RTFM, it's indicating that DC 12V could be accepted and here's the M12 connector required for making JSSG DC cables with 15AWG Mundorf SGW115 https://planetechusa.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/06/IGS-5227-6MT-X_Datasheet.pdf#page=6 We could make our own Ethernet cables that are terminated with X-coded M12 connector on one end, though here's something that's ready to go https://www.ebay.com/itm/METZ-CONNECT-142M2X15010-M12-RJ45-ETHERNET-CABLE-IP67-FNOB/183867433128 https://www.metz-connect.com/en/products/142m2x15010 IMHO it's hard to tell why Telegärtner would perform so well according to Emile, did the wide temperature part play a role while having the right male / female connectors might also score some extra points? https://slideplayer.com/slide/5267720/
  9. I don't mean to sound so mean but COVID-19 wouldn't be too "polite" when it comes to the elderly with underlying medical conditions.
  10. While Adnaco-S5 ain't exactly inexpensive to begin with, at least GPU offload could keep some of the heat away from the chassis http://www.adnaco.com/products/s5/ https://www.adnaco.biz/products/adnaco-s5-20-gb-s-pcie-gen-2-over-fiber-optic-expansion-system Maybe not quite available in US yet, though it shouldn't take very long https://www.quietpc.com/palit-ne5165001bg1-1170h http://www.palit.com/palit/vgapro.php?id=3494&lang=en https://tweakers.net/pricewatch/1517464/palit-geforce-gtx-1650-kalmx.html https://www.amazon.co.uk/Palit-NE5165001BG1-1170H-graphics-card-NVIDIA/dp/B084PY6DLY https://www.alternate.co.uk/Palit/GeForce-GTX-1650-KalmX-Graphics-card/html/product/1617418 https://www.idealo.co.uk/compare/7079941/palit-xpertvision-geforce-gtx-1650-kalmx-4gb-gddr5.html https://www.ebay.de/itm/Palit-GeForce-GTX-1650-KalmX-Grafikkarte-HDMI-2x-DisplayPort/133339698737 https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1062420/cuda-programming-and-performance/cuda-enabled-geforce-1650-/post/5421176/#5421176 Palit Unveils The GTX 1650 KalmX, A Fully Passive, 0 dBA Graphics Card https://wccftech.com/palit-unveils-the-gtx-1650-kalmx-a-fully-passive-0-dba-graphics-card/

  13. https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/taiko-audio-sgm-extreme-the-crème-de-la-crème.27433/page-143#post-629149 Since @romaz talked about how fast those Xeon Silver 4114 processors inside SGM Extreme were, it's only natural to find out what's even faster out there HPE, AMD sign $600M contract to build the world's fastest supercomputer for U.S. nuclear tests https://news.yahoo.com/m/6769704c-70ce-38fe-9b0f-5dfb576ad6fe/hpe%2C-amd-sign-%24600m-contract.html AMD Adds EPYC 7662 64 Core & EPYC 7532 32 Core CPUs To Rome Server Family – US Navy Readies 12.8 PFLOP Supercomputer With EPYC & Volta https://wccftech.com/amd-epyc-rome-cpus-us-navy-supercomputer-google-cloud-new-skus/ AMD Next-Gen Zen 3 Based Ryzen 4000 Desktop & EPYC Milan Server CPUs Arriving Late 2020 https://wccftech.com/amd-zen-3-ryzen-4000-desktop-and-epyc-milan-server-cpus-late-2020-launch/ https://www.head-fi.org/threads/review-comparison-of-5-high-end-digital-music-servers-aurender-n10-cad-cat-server-totaldac-d1-server-auralic-aries-audiophile-vortex-box.787020/page-92#post-15497469 AMD EPYC 7002 Series Rome Delivers a Knockout https://www.servethehome.com/amd-epyc-7002-series-rome-delivers-a-knockout/ AMD EPYC 7002 Series Coverage at STH Road to Rome Hub https://www.servethehome.com/amd-epyc-7002-series-coverage-sth-road-to-rome-hub/ Question for @Nenon since you're planning to build something that's somewhat similar to SGM Extreme. IIRC you're having better luck with Asus motherboards than other choices, did you take a look at their KRPA-U16 for AMD EPYC Rome 7002 Series by any chance? Ryzen / EPYC should be good for your Pink Faun I2S Bridge while having 16 DIMM slots could support 8 memory channels instead of 6 with Xeon Silver 4114 https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/SocketSP3(4094)/KRPA-U16/Manual/E16152_KRPA-U16_UM_V2_WEB.pdf#page=100 ASUS Announces New World Records on AMD EPYC 7002 Series 1P Server on SPEC.org https://www.asus.com/News/tscigh2afvlvwae0 AMD EPYC™ 7002 LGA 4094 EEB server motherboard with DDR4 3200 MHz, PCIe 4.0, M.2, NVMe, SAS, SATA, OCP 2.0 Mezzanine card, dual LAN and ASUS Control Center https://www.asus.com/Commercial-Servers-Workstations/KRPA-U16/ As always there's a catch with these powerful processors, real servers weren't designed for passive cooling in the first place while a normal server chassis should have case fans installed by default. In other words, these products from Dynatron and Supermicro wouldn't be such a good idea for a completely fanless setup https://www.amazon.com/Dynatron-A25-Passive-Copper-Skived/dp/B076W5P8CF https://www.amazon.com/Dynatron-A28-Heatsink-Chamber-Stacked/dp/B079YJ6634 https://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-SNK-P0062P-EPYC-7000-Brown/dp/B07F2M2CGC https://www.amazon.com/Supermicro-Heatsink-SNK-P0063P-Socket-Brown/dp/B078HH24Y7 http://developer.amd.com/wordpress/media/2013/12/ThermalGuideforSP3.pdf#page=12 In theory we're getting 16 cores / 32 threads from a single EPYC 7282 while passive cooling could be somewhat tricky https://en.wikichip.org/wiki/amd/epyc#7002_Series_.28Zen_2.29 https://www.servethehome.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/AMD-EPYC-7002-SKU-List-and-Value-Comparison-Full.jpg For the actual power consumption of an entire system with 12 RAM sticks plus dual Xeon 4114 @ 85W TDP, it's hard to tell how that would be compared to a single EPYC 7282 @ 120W TDP https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/taiko-audio-sgm-extreme-the-crème-de-la-crème.27433/page-97#post-615725 https://www.head-fi.org/threads/review-comparison-of-5-high-end-digital-music-servers-aurender-n10-cad-cat-server-totaldac-d1-server-auralic-aries-audiophile-vortex-box.787020/page-92#post-15497469 Now how do we keep the temperature low while having a lower load for the sake of better SQ? https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/taiko-audio-sgm-extreme-the-crème-de-la-crème.27433/page-100#post-616762 https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/30376-a-novel-way-to-massively-improve-the-sq-of-computer-audio-streaming/page/616/?tab=comments#comment-1014096 https://service.chelsio.com/beta/drivers/ChelsioUwire-3.9.1.0/Chelsio-GPUDirectRDMA-Linux-UserGuide.pdf#page=6 NVIDIA TESLA KEPLER K10 GPU ACCELERATOR https://www.ebay.com/itm/NVIDIA-TESLA-KEPLER-K10-GPU-ACCELERATOR/283637156734 NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU 5GB GDDR5 PCIe 2.0 x16 705MHz 900-22081-6310-001 Graphic https://www.ebay.com/itm/NVIDIA-Tesla-K20-GPU-5GB-GDDR5-PCIe-2-0-x16-705MHz-900-22081-6310-001-Graphic/372935506664 NVIDIA Tesla K20X 6GB GDDR5 PCI-E 3.0 x16 Server GPU Accelerator Card CUDA https://www.ebay.com/itm/NVIDIA-Tesla-K20X-6GB-GDDR5-PCI-E-3-0-x16-Server-GPU-Accelerator-Card-CUDA/352755592029 A fast GPU memory copy library based on NVIDIA GPUDirect RDMA technology https://github.com/NVIDIA/gdrcopy Frequently Asked Questions : GPUDirect RDMA https://community.mellanox.com/s/article/frequently-asked-questions---gpudirect-rdma GPUDirect Storage: A Direct Path Between Storage and GPU Memory https://devblogs.nvidia.com/gpudirect-storage/ Basically not that many applications (e.g. CyberLink PowerDVD and Signalyst HQPlayer etc.) support CUDA offloading but some audiophiles in Taiwan were using NVIDIA Nsight HUD Launcher to take advantage of their Tesla cards with just about anything http://www.myav.com.tw/bbs/showthread.php?threadid=20475707 http://www.myav.com.tw/bbs/showthread.php?threadid=20480094

  15. For devices with any ARM or maybe x86 processors that really don't consume too much power (i.e. relatively low TDP range when compared to those 65W / 85W / 95W mammoths) to begin with, GentooPlayer might seem to be a better bet https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55235-gentooplayer/page/38/?tab=comments#comment-1031413 Let's say we're running GentooPlayer on Allo USBridge Sig since both software and hardware should be made for audiophiles, what if we're connecting either USB-to-Ethernet adapter to that already optimized USB port via 2020 Sablon Audio Reserva Elite USB cable? http://www.iocrest.com/en/product_details571_a.html http://www.lr-link.com/products/LREC3210PF-SFP.html It's tough to beat that $250 giant killer https://audiophilestyle.com/ca/reviews/allo-usbridge-sig-review-r858/ In order to surpass that as well as NET Card FEMTO, maybe we'll have to go for NUC with this upcoming USB card from Marcin and a modified USB-to-Ethernet adapter while reaping the benefits of 2020 Sablon Audio Reserva Elite USB cable? https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/37151-jcat-net-card-femto/page/5/?tab=comments#comment-1025731 Though the signal path might be jumping through too many hoops when we're talking about stuff like this?
