  1. This thread is not for you obviously. What are you trying to get in the end? The declaration that Ethernet cables can't sound dufferent? Ok, they can't but they do for us, so can we please continue the conversation with the rest of the believers?
  2. Thanks for your feedback! Could you please share your findings regarding the difference between the Vodka & Diamond? Since I own Vodka and waiting for the delivery of WW to compare but also maybe will look at the Diamond in the end.
  3. 3 outstanding DACs could be found used for about $5k are: Bricasti M1, DcS Debussy (best USB in class), Rockna Wavedream (hard to find used), Or maybe, Mytek Manhattan. Then you have to find those around to have a listen those first since any of them could sound not good enough for you.
  4. Looks outstanding! Jesus, would you also trade-in the silver ones for the black?
  5. Yes, you know everything obviously. What I know is when I've tied to incorporate the tube pre from Quad, my monitors (Focal Twin 6BE) threw avery bit of distortion and dirt which tube amp had. But whatever since you decided that I know nothing about audio.
  6. Just use a plain USB cable (unfiltered)?))
  7. Hi jtrelin! Be careful with the tube preamp since you have a really transparent path including the powered monitors. The tube preamp most likely will blur everything and make it sound dirty.
  8. stvc, thanks for your feedback! Less dynamic, smaller headroom than with ifi PSU?
  9. Yesterday I've installed my optical isolation stuff into the music path (2x TP-LINK MC200CM & Duplex Multimode 62.5/125 Fiber Patch Cable (SC/SC), 10M). Everything works nicely but I haven't noticed any improvement. Maybe my local network is clean already since there are no devices connected directly to the router except for the Internet provider and microRendu.
  10. Thanks everyone for your input! Unfortunately, this thread is all about the microRendu and probably, Jesus is mad about us discussing usb cables right now. I would like to apologise but my favorites goes from the bottom to the top: lightspeed 10g, curious, totaldac d1, aq diamond. Unfortunately I haven't tryed the Audience or beloved in Russian audiophile community - Synergistic Active (literally, everyone who tryed one, loves it). While I didn't liked the Curious as well as the Lightspeed at all, they sound the same to my ears.
  11. Is not quite what I expect. Each and every cable I've tried and owned like AQ Diamond USB has made a huge difference in sound-staging and details retrieval at least.
  12. Well, now I have to carry an external USB drive where my music stored, which makes it not that portable and I have to be extra-careful to move the laptop around. But that bit of freedom costs around $1k which makes me think.
  13. Thanks for your input, firedog! I'm more interested in high-end line of USB cords since I've owned some and found them to sound much better than average. Also have tested Curious and TotalDac in the "pre-uR era" and didn't liked them either.
