  1. They do have something else that's as small as it gets https://www.module-store.de/en/conga-b7e3-amd-epyc-3000/?cat=187 http://linuxgizmos.com/amds-epyc-3000-shows-up-on-com-express-type-7-module/ https://www.congatec.com/fileadmin/user_upload/Documents/Datasheets/conga-B7E3.pdf https://www.congatec.com/technologies/com-express/com-express-type-7/amd-epyc-embedded-3000-eco-system.html https://www.congatec.com/technologies/com-express/com-express-type-7/com-express-type-7-with-amd-epyc-3000-processors.html https://www.picmg.org/resources/news/member-press-releases/congatec-com-express-type-7-module-with-amd-epyc-embedded-3000-processor/ Though we'll have to add that conga-STX7 carrier board and it's gonna get so expensive just because we're paying for the flexibility of COM Express https://www.congatec.com/en/congatec/press-releases/article/congatec-launches-100-watt-ecosystem-for-embedded-edge-and-micro-servers.html This is what they're asking for another larger carrier board https://www.module-store.de/en/conga-x7eval-com-express-type-7-evaluation-board/ https://www.module-store.de/en/conga-x7eval/ind/ https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/congatec/conga-X7-EVAL?qs=F5EMLAvA7IBVWkrTPB%2FoBA%3D%3D What if we're looking for something that's even more compact than NUC?

Let's wait and see if that were able to beat Mundorf / Neotech then.
  4. Now I realize that's RDIMM instead of UDIMM https://store.supermicro.com/8gb-ddr4-2666-mem-dr480l-cl02-er26.html https://www.nemixram.com/supermicro-mem-dr480l-cl02-er26-8gb-memory-upgrade.html All C621 motherboards from Supermicro turned out to support only RDIMM and LRDIMM in addition to Optane DCPMM https://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/Xeon3000/ Finally we can't even mix UDIMM and Optane DCPMM to begin with https://lenovopress.com/lp1066.pdf#page=10 I thought that I could get on the Group Buy train (Apacer UDIMM with WT) right before its departure, gotta find a different source for Apacer RDIMM (without WT) then https://industrial.apacer.com/en-ww/DRAM/DDR4-RDIMM Not sure about the quality of this brand since they're so much cheaper https://enoch.systems/en/p/components/memory/m4r0-4gssa5ik.html https://enoch.systems/en/p/components/memory/m4rs-4gssc50j-e.html https://www.innodisk.com/en/products/dram-module/wide-temperature/DDR4_Wide_Temperature_ECC_RDIMM
  5. Thanks @Nsxturbo for your awesome answers, I guess that giving up 4 cores and go for Silver 4215 wouldn't be such a bad idea since Optane DCPMM could be lots of fun. How about your fanless Micro-ATX chassis since we also wanna know which one is a good fit for that particular C621 motherboard? Just wondering if that were adequate for passively cooling 12-core Xeon Scalable with 85W TDP. Did you actually compare 3-channel versus 6-channel ECC RAM yet? Thanks again.
  6. That's why we'd like to call it 臥虎藏龍 or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in English. So many interesting products over there while they're virtually unknown to international customers. Here's an example with four SC cut OCXO http://www.nctodolbs.com/dp-505-pro/ And then there's also something else called Jie Audio OS (kinda similar to XXHighEnd or something?) for 2,000 RMB https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=549594639001 They've got plenty of options to optimize the SQ department of RoonServer http://www.headphoneclub.com/thread-732005-1-1.html One of their customers tried AudioLinux (but not Euphony / Stylus yet) before and that's no match for JAOS, though AudioLinux might not be as optimized as what Larry did. Even running the Server Core flavor of Windows Server 2019 in RAM (with Audiophile Optimizer + Process Lasso + Fidelizer) still wasn't as good as what JAOS could offer, though there might be language barrier unless we're adding this stuff ourselves Microsoft-Windows-Server-Language-Pack_x64_en-us.cab https://software-download.microsoft.com/download/pr/17763.1.180914-1434.rs5_release_SERVERLANGPACKDVD_OEM_MULTI.iso Windows 8.1 Language Packs https://github.com/Titokhan/display-language-switcher/blob/master/LangPack/9600-LPs.txt Windows 8 Language Packs https://github.com/Titokhan/display-language-switcher/blob/master/LangPack/9200-LPs.txt Language Packs for Windows Embedded 8 Standard (64-bit) https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=38763 Sometimes it's also fun to read direct listening impressions on other threads, especially when we're all about a collection of impressions on this particular thread here. I saw that JAOS actually consumed less than 1GB of RAM with 28 processes / 265 threads / 5359 handles, therefore having only 4GB of Apacer RAM should be good to go. IIRC some of us actually opted for the superior SQ of Euphony / Stylus while forgoing the strength of Roon, maybe there's still a chance for Roon to shine again?
  7. https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55916-euphony-os-wstylus-player-setup-and-issues-thread/page/28/?tab=comments#comment-997400 Could that be Xeon Silver 4114T or 4214Y? Which Supermicro motherboard and why did you choose that? Did you choose something that's powered by 24-pin ATX or Gold Finger connector? Where did you get your custom linear power supply? Did you get 6 × 8G or 3 × 16G of ECC Memory and what's the brand? Sorry about asking so many questions in a row but please pardon my morbid curiosity.
  8. Did this SD card player (via I2S) still manage to beat your Antipodes DXe Server (via USB) by any chance? https://sites.google.com/view/audiostuff/sd-player http://www.tirnahifi.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=4541
  9. I saw that you're also quite fond of SLC CF cards from Apacer http://jplay.eu/forum/index.php?/topic/2413-apacer-cf-card-extended-range-temperature-as-ssd/#entry41693 http://jplay.eu/forum/index.php?/topic/1141-guide-how-to-properly-set-up-windows-server-2012-on-a-cf-card/page-3#entry41542 Their latest model should be CS710-CF and 32GB ones are about $330 on Mouser, did you try previous generations yourself and just wondering if the impact were as significant as what ECC RAM could bring to the table? https://industrial.apacer.com/en-ww/SSD/CS710-CF https://www.soselectronic.com/products/apacer/ap-cf032grhns-etnrk-320536 https://www.mouser.com/Semiconductors/Memory-ICs/Memory-Modules-Memory-Cards/Memory-Cards/CS710-CF-Series/_/N-fb8vi?P=1y8f0ve Since not all motherboards are compatible with CF-to-SATA adapters these days, their SLC SSDs might seem to be a better to me https://industrial.apacer.com/en-ww/SSD/SS130-25 https://www.soselectronic.com/products/apacer/aps25hu7032g-ktwf-322963 SS130-25 was released several months ago and therefore it should be fairly new.
  10. The SSD itself is pretty far away from the motherboard while both Pachanko and JCAT are only 40 cm by default, though we could test drive short SATA cables via USB instead https://www.addonics.com/products/adsau3.php https://www.addonics.com/products/adsau31r.php Addonics resulted in significant boosts to SQ https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/30376-a-novel-way-to-massively-improve-the-sq-of-computer-audio-streaming/page/219/?tab=comments#comment-760676 Someone compared Pachanko to JCAT back in March but both of them turned out to excel in their own ways https://www.hiendy.com/hififorum/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=124319&page=23#pid2918502 And then these guys seemed to be happy campers after trying a different brand, many superlatives FWIW http://www.audiopheeling.com/digital.html http://jplay.eu/forum/index.php?/topic/2820-computer-related-digital-cables/page-2#entry49267 http://jplay.eu/forum/index.php?/topic/2645-jplay-classic-jplay-femto-released-general-discussion/page-21#entry45917 https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/26411-pachanko-sata-cable/page/4/?tab=comments#comment-723350 BTW, I found that AudioQuest Diamond USB was connected to PhoenixUSB during one of the demos while that particular choice might be the weakest link IMHO Even arguably the "best" server on the market from Taiko Audio could still be improved by such an affordable USB isolator with two excellent USB cables https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/intona-usb-2-0-3-0-isolators-2019versions.28439/ Nobody actually compared PLiXiR to Dr. Sean Jacobs' DC3 (let alone Statement-level PSU) yet, though that comparison might happen down the road? Coincidentally Volent Audio turned out to be the reseller of Innuos / Intona / PLiXiR here in Hong Kong, let's hope that PhoenixUSB could be tested with Statement again with MUCH better cables in the near future https://intona.eu/en/products/wheretobuy/ http://www.volent.com.hk/index.php/brands/innuos/ https://www.plixirpower.com/blogs/asia/volent-corporation-limited

  12. Rob already stated that DAVE 2 wouldn't appear in the foreseeable future since he's still working on his DX amp(s) as well as DAVINA, does it make sense to bump the Pulse Array design from 10 to 20 elements first and then get a pair of nice BNC cables later? BTW, it's interesting to read something from an owner of $105,000 / pair amps + £130,000 / pair speakers since the source turned out to be Dell XPS 13 https://www.head-fi.org/threads/hugo-m-scaler-by-chord-electronics-the-official-thread.885042/page-567#post-15228654 Though adding OPTO•DX would also require an extra pair of BNC cables while Dan's getting to ready launch RF•STOP by the end of this month https://audiowise-canada.myshopify.com/products/rf-block https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/1552/8145/files/WhitePaper_RF-STOP.pdf
  13. Pretty interesting experience? https://www.hiendy.com/hififorum/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=124410&page=4#pid2965658
  14. $99 Qudelix-5K with aptX Adaptive https://www.qudelix.com/5k-dacamp https://www.head-fi.org/threads/the-qudelix-5k-thread.914628/
  15. I guess that's more or less like by the end of 2019? http://www.audioreference.co.nz/product/innuos-pheonex-usb-reclocker Blu MK2 itself should be really prone to RF noise to begin with, and then its built-in SMPS could also pollute the other components in the entire chain. BTW, SGM Extreme should be considered one of the best source components out there while this <$400 isolator from Intona with two pieces of their own flagship USB cables (plus the power of another quality PSU) still managed to offer sonic improvement https://pro.intona.eu/en/products/buy/7055/7055-B https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/intona-usb-2-0-3-0-isolators-2019versions.28439/ In other words, it's gonna be awesome to try PhoenixUSB with SGM Extreme as well as Intona with Statement. Finally we could even try powering that micro USB input (DC 5V only without data) of Intona with USB output of PhoenixUSB.
