  1. I hope it´s OK for Innuos that I share the information I got from Nuno some weeks ago: "Our USB Reclocker will include the Statement USB Reclocker Board as well as 2x Statement-Level Linear power supplies in half-width chassis with the same depth as the SE. Price is TBC but in the region of $3000. Do note that this would replace the equivalent of a TX-USBUltra, a very good LPSU for the TX-USBUltra, a Mutec REF10, clock cables and at least one good power chord. Compared to that, we're talking about half the price. We expect to launch it around July but still to be confirmed."
  2. @str-1 did you try the SE with new firmware with the "new experimental feature"? I find it so much better that I sold my tx-USB Ultra (powered by LPS 1.2) which didn´t gave me better SQ anymore. Maybe even good to know for you that Nino informed me that an "external USB reclocker module including the same USB board as the Statement and the two linear power supplies required to power it in one box" at the end of Q2. It should close the gap to the Statement to some extend.
  3. Before selling the SE and buying the Statement it´s maybe of interest for you to read what Nuno wrote to me in september 2018. Yes, we are planning an external USB reclocker module including the same USB board as the Statement and the two linear power supplies required to power it in one box. The objective is exactly for SE owners to upgrade to a sound quality closer to the Statement without having to switch their systems. Hope this helps. I asked about the reclocker again some weeks ago but I haven´t got an answer yet.
  4. Talking about the fuse - I just can´t find it on this forum anymore. Which fuse size and fuse rating is needed (for the Zenith MK2 SE - should be the same as for the MK3)?
  5. Hi Nuno, glad you are here! What about the planned upgrade clocking unit for USB-out of the Zenith SE you mentioned before which will close the gap to the Statement a bit?
  6. I just get stuttering or the playback stops when I skip to the next track with the new experimental option. So I try to avoid that and really enjoy the much better SQ. It´s worth it for me.
  7. Thanks for the nice report! Have you tried the new experimental feature in the new Zenith firmware? This would be another significant upgrade - even if it´s not completely stable. Another step could be to replace the fuse of the Zenith.
  8. Did you follow all points of the instructions including point 9? I think RAM playback is part of choosing this experimental feature. You can´t choose it as a seperate option. Disclaimer - this is an experimental feature which may have occasional dropouts. It uses the Squeezebox integration within Roon which supports only audio up to 24bit/192 and DSD64. Quarantine and Import will be disabled as they require the internal LMS to be active and that would conflict with this feature on Roon. Go to Settings > Choose Server Integration Activate the Roon switch then select the option "Use Roon Core with Squeezelite Player (Experimental)" Click the Apply Changes button Launch the Roon App Go to Settings > Setup Activate the switch for "Enable Squeezebox Support" Go to Setting > Audio Disable any players shown under "Connected to Core" Enable the Squeezelite player under Squeezebox.
  9. I don´t understand. Did the RAM playback finally work after changing the latency setting to normal again?
  10. Some more who want to share his experiences with the new firmware, especially with the new experimental feature?
  11. But at the same time hearing with firmware 1.41 reminds me about the days I had LP and a Linn LP12. You have to hear music without skipping. The new firmware definitely doesn´t like when you skip tracks.
  12. I just took the tx-USBultra clocked by an Cybershaft O13 out of my chain. And it sounds slyghtly better now. The chain benefited from them before I switched to the new firmware. So for now: Zenith SE (with firmware 1.41) -> Lush^2 USB cable -> Chord MScaler -> Chord DAVE -> Hifiman HE-1000SE sounds best.
  13. Maybe it´s only for the SE.
