  1. Personally, I have waited for 16 months and I'm prepared to wait for another 16 months. I like that Paul is willing to open up my slot for others and refund me at any time if I so desire. That actually ensures I don't lose money, and I don't have to go through the hassle of posting on a forum and having to try and sell it myself. These products aren't for everyone. I value the customisation aspect of things (aka not scaleable), and hence am prepared to wait as a result. Also I can understand why, since they are customised, people can take over builds- this is not like all of us are getting the same product and someone just 'leapfrogged' us. But these are just my two cents!
  2. Interesting. Previously when I tried it sample rate follow did not work without rednet control open... is your Dante controller open?
  3. So sample rate follow works without Rednet Control running?
  4. Let me preface this post by saying I only listen to headphones (not speakers) and so the drivers are next to my ears and I hear way more than you’d typically detect with speakers. But to my ears the power supply to the Lps-1 makes a difference. One good change ive found it putting an ifi ac ipurifier before the Lps-1’s energiser, to the point that as I have three Lps-1 I now also have three ifi ac ipurifiers. I put the lps-1 on a separate power line from my audio gear to reduce the effect of the switching power leakage, and the chain now looks like this on the distributor: (First slot) ifi ac ipurifier -> Lps-1 Energizer -> ipurifier -> energizer-> ipurifier -> (last slot) Energizer) the sound is smoother and richer and has a quieter background overall. Cheers!
  5. The past few posts in particular have been rather distracting. Layout matters; shielding matters; impedance matters; and length of DC cable matters. In particular, the MSB Analog may or may not have an optimal circuit layout but not sure how this relates to the Ref10? Perhaps those interested in that component can open a thread to talk about it in exacting detail, with pictures and graphs and 1000 word essays... But I'm more interested in the Ref10
  6. Since we’re speculating I have a question and apologies if it’s been answered- but why did ref10 take a few years to make it from prototype to final product, in an obviously different form?
  7. I agree on discussing this on another thread. Besides, there's not much we can do to help. What we were doing was simply spec-ing out the models we want. I've seen SR7's with single rail, dual rail, and multi-rail. I've seen dual regulation (two rails for one output). I've seen a 9-19v rail, a 2-12v rail, and all manner in between (heat is the limiting factor). I've seen one trafo per rail, or one really huge trafo for all rails. We also got a choice of which output module to use (S, HD, EHD), and IEC sockets, DC wire leads, etc etc. You can even choose your own custom chassis, which I did. Really what made this product special was that it was a journey. It was a bespoke tailored suit, not off-the shelf (which also makes refunds extremely difficult because someone needs to want your exact build). And as everyone knows half the fun of a bespoke suit is that it's yours and yours alone and nobody has something *quite* like it. I imagine many of us have overlapping opinions, but we probably arrived at them in different ways. I've had a lot of fun exchanging many PMs with different people who had bought their own SR7, and also got advice from Paul over a great many emails. It's been a hoot! But then again I have so many toys to play with that I'm really patient with my audio purchases... As a product? I guess the real magic sauce lies in Paul's circuit and design, which we have no access to. Another thread is a good start; but Uptone could probably also contact Paul directly to ask if he wants to license his designs out for manufacture. He's done that in the past with other partners, though always with him fronting the business.
  8. Here you go: fob69 found it a good improvement over his modded tplinks.
  9. Nope. But I just got the Delock, following fob69’s lead. Expect that to have a nice improvement over the switching regulators in the tplink.
  10. Currently planning to power my server, mutec, rednet and FMC. Four rails, four trafos total.
  11. Yes that's the plan- and also one of the reasons I upgraded my SR4 order to SR7
  12. As one of the happy 29, I must admit I knew for a while that Paul was planning to wind down the custom business. I don't blame him- it obviously causes much angst, only applies to a select part of the population, and doesn't apparently make people as wildly happy as a ~$500 PSU. But then that's what the SR4 represents, which happily for Paul he's been able to get out quickly, efficiently and on time. Purely from a commercial perspective if I were him I'd also choose that angle as the future of my business
  13. I have this problem too. Sometimes the sample rate stops changing as well if it stays this way for too long. Let me know if you find a fix!
  14. If anything, that tells me that the SR4s and SR7s are being manufactured differently, ie assembled and tested by different people. The SR7s are all hand-built by Paul himself, but the SR4s are not.
