  1. Fully agree. My flac files sound better than they have ever been. Has anyone compared wav vs flac files of the same tracks ripped from cd's via Innuos' own ripper? Is there any significant difference in SQ?
  2. Omitted o quote BigAIMc.
  3. I am playing music only from the internal hard drive.
  4. FWIW, I find the Sense app is optimised for the iPad. The SQ of the Android version on a Samsung tablet is just not in the same league as the iOS version on the iPad. There is an opacity, homogeneity and attenuation of transients to the sound via the Android version that is completely absent in the iOS version. Enjoy the Music!
  5. I would most certainly remove it too if it isn't synergistic with my system. :)
  6. Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully Innuos will make it available at my location asap. :)
  7. I tried to download the 2.0 app today but no success. So the app is not ready for Zen Mk 3 despite having updated it to 1.4.9. ZENith Mk 3 owners should probably get it.
  8. My two cents is that 2 boxes should be better than one where the noisy circuits are well isolated from the audio path. Cheers!
  9. Just pulled out probably the greatest rock concert of all time, Neil Diamond's Hot August Night (40th Anniversary 24/44 remaster) for a listen. I haven't heard this album for quite a while simply because it did not rock quite as well as it should with my previous system cabled with the Oyaide Continental 5S usb. With my recent change to the Shunyata alpha usb, I ventured to dive once more into this album. Wow! All I can say is that my system now rocks as all get out. Pace and rhythm are top notch and Neil's energetic vocals was a reach out and touch experi
  10. Yes, it is frustrating but it does force us to choose to be happy with whatever we already have, despite missing the 20%. Enjoy the music! :)
  11. What gnaws you so much are the believers of the well-informed opinion that cables do make a difference, to such an extent that you have this gnawing need to go around persuading believers not to believe their own ears. :)
  12. If you do come across an opportunity to compare the Oyaide with the Shunyata in your system, do let us know the outcome. Cheers!
  13. I have compared the Oyaide 5S and Shunyata alpha usb cables in my system. What makes the Shunyata sound better? For me, it is the dramatic reduction in noise and distortion which I did not know were there with the Oyaide until the switch. I had enjoyed the Oyaide 5S very much until the Shunyata revealed its limitations. In addition, for a digital cable, music sounds much less "stepped", much more analog-like, with the Shunyata. So by simply comparing, if another cable does not improve SQ, then just keep what you already have.
  14. It is usually more like non-believers trying to persuade believers. Believers don't go around forums trying to persuade non-believers. :)
