  1. Good. I think it's smart to make any and all components as independent and reusable as possible.
  2. I'd asked Mattijs about this a few times. He said he'd been too busy with Super3 sales to finalize his design, so thanks for posting it. However I was most curious about Pachanko's new lines, which look beautifully made, but I've only seen one customer post on them (and it was very good). Nenon announced this project just in time to lay on the brakes and wait.
  3. This is an interesting and creative permutation Nenon. I wonder what Jussi Laako would think of it ;)
  4. On the other hand, you mentioned Taiko was willing to share some tech which was not in the Extreme. That should be interesting, but either way, it's hard to truly critique the pricing estimates until we see the power supply, which as we all know is a big cost variable (I was hoping somebody has a breakthrough prototype in SMPS for this project, which could shrink chassis size requirements ;)
  5. Interesting, so you came up with something you like better than Euphony. I always liked HQP, and have been meaning to try HQPE (embedded), but I never experienced the SQ problems others claim with Roon so I've stayed with it, and it's by far the best UI (though I have no big problem with the HQP UI options). The combo is interesting. You don't have to get into that now while you're focused on hardware.
  6. So $10K for the chassis and power? Are you able to say anything about software, like if Emile will include the new player he's developing? EDIT: I'm sure you'll fire up some of your group buys for off-the-shelf components, to keep those costs down, right?
  7. I liked the way Emile attached the PCIe brackets internally on the Extreme. Not a big deal either way for me. Cosmetically, I prefer anodized finishes. Scratched paint makes new cases look used. I hope the mobo top-out package includes some nice heat-sinking metal, one area I really liked on the HDPlex. Lastly for now, what is the form factor for the Sage mobo? I would hope for some degree of flexibility in that choice (a very hi-end mobo + 2 CPUs may price some out of the project), but if not, can you provide a link to that mobo so we can begin to study
  8. Thanks for the update Nenon. I'm not nearly as concerned with the footprint of the chassis as I am with the accompanying power offering that would fill that extra space. EDIT: I like the idea of the heavier chassis materials. Also, a small detail I've been thinking about for my current DIY server -- it might be good to consider a common thread for studs that fit some of the more affordable feet like the BDR cones.

  11. Yes, I've met a number of members willing to do a kind deed. Thanks for the comment and Happy New Year.
  12. Does anyone have an ISO of this they can share? My ripper machine is not working. Thanks. HRAudio.net - Beethoven: Symphony No. 6, Schubert: Symphony No. 5 - Böhm
  13. Eternal life, irrevocable, through a simple act of faith alone in Christ alone. Anyone can have it if they want it -- it is the gift of God.
  14. Thanks. I was wondering if some were still buying from the guys on Ebay who sell a key half a dozen times until MS shuts it down.
  15. Last I checked it would be a little tricky for individual DIYers to license W10 LTSC. Has that changed?

  22. Thanks FredM. I had hoped for a little more info, but I didn't expect it. I'm very interested in any breakthrus in SMPS's for the server piece, as I'm so tired of messing with expensive LPS's. In my case, USB is the best option, and the MSB Pro-ISL/USB interface is integrated with the MSB Femto33 clock. Hence my interest in the power supply aspect.
  23. I wouldn't call 255 euros "whopping" for this hobby. Not sure about the Akasa, but there is a good bit of copper in the HDPlex kits. And from the times I've interacted with HDPlex, Larry provided excellent customer service.
  24. Can anyone elaborate on the power supply in the MU1?
