  1. She is a favorite of mine, also Karen Matheson of Capercaillie.
  2. I’ve used Markertek canare starquad in the past for 30’ runs and terminated with Neutrik connectors. Not expensive and well made.
  3. And this version IS functional updating KC from 0.2 to 2.0. Thanks to the folks at Kii for finally providing this update. BTW it would be nice if the KC showed the bit depth and rate for data streamed to the kii.
  4. Makes no difference here as I was logged in as root and the app still crashed with a segmentation fault due to an invalid address (?).
  5. Same here...passed them on to a family member and he is absolutely thrilled with the Requests. They still sound great and Dirac Live takes care of any room issues.
  6. I'm not seeing the upgrade tool on the support pages. Perhaps they have taken it down.
  7. I’ve a number of custom built cables from Markertek with Canare wires. Very reasonable prices as well and manufactured in NY.
  8. The Mac USB implementation has long been known as having issues and I have had similar lapses of USB connectivity when I put the Mac into sleep mode. Recently with Mojave I’ve experienced no difficulties though, although I usually do not sleep the computer now.
  9. Both approaches. Mostly I just run Audirvana from the Mac into the Kii Control. But when I am listening to vinyl, radio streams or local files I'll use the Pi/22D and can use "sound shaping" if desired. The Dirac is quite good and was essential for a pair of electrostats I had. But the boundary control of the Kiis is quite effective in taming the room.
  10. I have a 22D fed by a rasp. pi as well as Benchmark ADC for vinyl. The 22D is AES into the Kiis. This works well and provides a slight improvement over the Kii. I haven't installed the Dirac 2 update yet, which should help with phasing of the two speakers.
  11. I don’t miss those Minnesota winters at all! Happy shoveling...
  12. BTW John, I had a listen to “The Logical Song;” what an eye-opener! You’ve done a marvelous job with your decoder.
