  1. I believe it is this one (two units): https://www.dxengineering.com/parts/DXE-ISO-PLUS-2
  2. That seems like a network issue and I'm the wrong person to diagnose that kind of problem. I've used Roon for years and the software reliably connected to the Roon endpoint 99.9% of the time. In my case, troubleshooting was simple. The network was fine and I had added new equipment (second eR and an LPS 1.2). The eRs were getting power, so it wasn't the power supplies. Power cycled anyway. No Roon connection. Disconnected my "old" eR and connected the most recent eR. Roon found the endpoint. "New" eR is not the problem. Reconnected everything as it had been and found that my first e
  3. Thank you, John. I appreciate the response. I don't have an infrared thermometer. Is there one you recommend for this purpose? That said, even for the great good of audiophiles everywhere, I don't want to try a reenactment at this point (still burning in the second eR). Subjectively, the problem started when the eR was too hot to handle. I've had it for more than a year and it never was that hot and never had issues, but adding an additional eR and LPS 1.2 warmed the cabinet considerably, I suppose. Hadn't mentioned this in my earlier posts since I assumed this was a one-
  4. Thank you, John. In my own situation, as the weather warmed up considerably, I had intermittent dropouts. As it became a daily ritual of trying to find the problem, which included opening the cabinet door and powering off the eRs and LPS 1.2, it suddenly occurred to me that the second eR (which was the first purchased and the one connected to the clock) was hotter than usual and was uncomfortable to touch. Adding a fan was an experiment and one that seems to have solved the problem (no dropouts since - here I'm knocking on the wood desk). The same company that makes the fa
  5. During the summer, a 5" X 5" quiet fan is on all the time (plugged in AC outlet). The difference in the external temperature of the eRs and LPS 1.2 is dramatic. From very, very hot to warm. An inexpensive ($19) experiment. In the US: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MZ6T8VF/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  6. Interesting. I have two eRs (both with one input). The first is A > B, fiber in and copper out. The second is A > B, copper in and out (to the DAC). The second one uses an external clock. The second one runs much hotter than the first, but I'm assuming that results from differences in air flow within my cabinet.
  7. Why not get an in-home demo and decide for yourself? contact Bill Parish: https://gttaudio.com/
  8. Very clearly written review. I would just add that if you are connecting a Tambaqui directly to Mola Mola Kalugas, the 6v output level is fine and the other choices don't change the sound, just require a higher (that is, less attenuation) volume level. Also, if you aren't using a streamer before the Tambaqui (and perhaps even if you do), the UpTone etherREGEN cleans up the signal and therefore improves the sound. I've been experimenting with the eR and have found, as many others, that adding an external clock (with its own quality LPS) makes a significant, positive difference.
  9. The best solution is what sounds best to your ears. If easy to do, try the reverse. You also had an LPS 1.2. What does that power?
  10. I suppose it depends on the temperature in your home, but I've found that adequate ventilation is needed for the eRs, Om and LPS 1.2. In my setup, that means sufficient space among the components and a small fan. Heat sinks work well for others.
  11. Well, now that he has, just wanted to check that the wearables will interface with a fitbit (or exclusive UpTone "magic ring.")
  12. Hello David, The Shunyata clock cables are interesting. The Delta cable looks like an ordinary cable (excellent build from the descriptions). The Alpha cable adds the Cmode doodad (not pronounced commode!). According to their website: "Shunyata Research has developed a CMODE filter that effectively reduces common-mode noise without introducing the sonic compression ..." The Sigma has two CMODEs. There certainly seems to be endless ways/types of noise to reduce. Do the doodads add something to the party? Thanks.
  13. Have you tried powering just the DAC with the JS-2 (or just the Mscaler)? How does that change the sound? I'm not familiar with your gear. Perhaps someone on a chord thread/forum has a JS-2 and they can provide better information. The JS-2's outputs do share a ground. Not sure if that is affecting anything.
  14. No. From the user guide: The sequence to utilize an external reference clock with the EtherREGEN is: 1) Remove DC power from the EtherREGEN. 2) Set the CLOCK INT/EXT switch to the EXT position. 3) Connect a BNC clock cable from a 10MHz reference clock. 4) Power on the reference clock. 5) Apply DC power to the EtherREGEN.
