  1. I was thinking that the handshake could be buggy and was preparing for a bit of a lag or fussiness but its encouraging to hear you have had at least some success using a USB switch. Its a pretty inexpensive experiment to try. Thanks for the quick response.
  2. Kal I'm curious about you "high-quality switch" comment. Are you using a usb switch? I have a new dac on its way and I would like to compare the sound of it against my current dac. After reading your comment it got me thinking if it would be possible to run the usb out of my Rendu into a usb switch and then run the switch to two separate dacs in an effort to A/B them with no cable swapping? Sorry to hijack the thread here but the notion of being able to do this is really intriguing to me.
  3. I own two of the SVS SB400 subs that I feel are just stunning paired with by Spatial Audio M3 TM speakers. I can only imagine what the 16's bring to the table. The app is quite powerful but I paired these with a DSpeaker unit and this took the integration right into the pocket. Adding subs are is more than just bass. Properly integrated subs have away of elevating the rest of the musical spectrum. Its hard to describe but the bottom weighted anchor they provide just give the whole presentation a realism closer to that live being there feeling for me. Its very addictive. If you are
  4. Thanks jcn3 for your input. I came across those settings recommendations and have reset the bios a started again. Didn't get me any farther
  5. ATXKYLE I finally got around to trying to load Rock onto an Optane drive I had that came with my NUC, but ran into a dead end. The install appears to go fine. The Rock USB Boot drive sees the Optane, loads and gets to the installation successful point of the install. However when I try to boot from the the optane drive containing Roon Rock I get the attached string and a frozen boot. Did you or any other readers come across this in their trials? Wondering if this is something that needs to be addressed in the BIOS settings.
  6. I am having trouble with installing Roon Rock on my Optane drive on an i7 NUC. It sounds as if people have had success with this. I have Roon running on a SSD M.2 slot for a couple months but wanted to try the Optane Drive. Install to optane appears to go well but when I try to boot after install I get a the attached string of text ending in end kernal panic etc. Is Roon Rock on Optane Boot drive a dead end or is there a work around here? The BIOS on my NUC is the most current available.
  7. I thought I read somewhere that Roon Rock was not able to run on an Optane drive or was not supported. You appear to be suggesting that I migrate the Rock software to the Optane Drive? I was actually considering loading Euphony onto the Optane drive to compare as it seems the AS community appears to agree that Euphony sounds a bit better than ROCK. Davide256 Would you agree?
  8. I wanted to share a solution I just came up with for implementing the DC shunt cable into ones system. I've introduced the shunt onto some of my power supplies and feel like there is a noticeable decrease of hash in the high frequencies. However having several nice DC cables from Ghent I didnt want to permanently introduce these low end DC connectors that have been suggested permanently into my system. I ordered some Copper Retaining Rings from McMaster Carr linked here. https://www.mcmaster.com/98410A605/ These rings snugly fit on the outside of the DC 5.5mm DC barrel
  9. I have received mine. Have had a few cursory listening sessions but all I can say so far is it does what its supposed to do voltage wise.

  12. Sorry Brian Bazinga is the KECES still avaialable?
  13. New large affordable LIFEPO4 battery packs. Any new thoughts on this avenue? https://www.amazon.com/s?k=LiFePO4+portable+power+station&rh=p_89%3ABEAUDENS&s=price-asc-rank&dc&qid=1592689743&rnid=2528832011&ref=sr_nr_p_89_1
  14. Im currently looking at these. They have LIFEPO4 batteries which as I understand it maintain voltage better and have better impedance specs. Please dont quote me on that. The Sine wave only works for the 110 outlet as I understand it. If you are powering 5-12 volt range it doesnt apply. Based on the specs the smaller unit will power my NUC for 5 hours. My Etherregen and DSpeaker 8033 much longer. Wish some of the members with more electrical savvy backgrounds would take an interest. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=LiFePO4+portable+power+station&rh=p_89%3ABEAUDENS&s=price-asc-rank&
