  1. Thanks. This is about where I am now also. My wired AudioTechnica's sound really great but are dying. I find the Sony's to be a bit "HiFi" sounding. I tried ATH's new Bluetooth phones but the ear cups are much smaller. I guess that I need to accept these as a good compromise for airline travel and use wired phones for music elsewhere. They are remarkable for ANC. Much better than my ATH's
  2. Where did you hear/read that? HDPlex recommends their own 200w LPS with it for audio applications and I can find nothing on their site that mentions needing 10A. The 12v and 19v outputs of the 200w unit are rated at 10A but that is their max, not a recommendation. Thanks.
  3. I just bought a pair also due to what looks like impending failure of my wired ATH noise cancelling head phones. I cannot really speak much to the SQ of the phones yet as I am sure they need break-in but the ANC is remarkable. It is like being in an anechoic chamber. My wife can be two feet from me speaking in a normal voice and I cannot hear her. My ATHs had excellent SQ but mediocre ANC, mainly good for typical airplane engine noise. I can't even imagine how good the 2.0 version was. How long have users found break-in to take? Currently the sound is a bit constricted and slightly muffled. The sound is also a bit bass heavy which makes them a bit "HiFi" for me. I prefer neutral, natural, and accurate to the source.
  4. This may have been covered previously but what is the story if I click on an album from a Qobuz curated playlist which seems to be available but once the tracks show it says that they are "unavailable" and trying to launch them confirms this.
  5. I have listened to this endlessly lately. Lively, upbeat, interesting...
  6. Thanks a lot. That worked! I wondered if there was a "trick". I am sure that in a Pro environment nobody cares about a few more LEDs but at home with the room lights off at night there is still enough light to cast shadows! With your 3 units you could have Disco parties 🙂 Very clean looking system there. I am limited to USB from my Roon endpoint to my M3USB and use AES out to my DAC. I have the Ref10 also.
  7. Have any of you successfully dimmed the LEDs on the M3USB front panel using the instructions from the manual which require you to push the two front buttons at the same time? I have tried this several times but what always happens is that I just end up changing the settings. Either perfect timing is required or this function just does not work. As far as I know I am at the most recent(not very) firmware version. BTW. The M3USB is still one of the best audio purchases I have ever made. Thanks! Paul
  8. Not trying to offend but actually there is a reason to ask. You would be surprised how many times vendors with few posts have popped up here without revealing their industry affiliation and then recommended their own products. It has been a very slippery slope. If you had not mentioned HDPlex by name I probably would not have asked... Let us know if you buy one of those Farad supplies and it is an improvement over the HDPlex. Sounds like a promising development.
  9. Thanks. Always nice to hear of new options. Do you have any association with Farad Power Supplies?
  10. I was responding to the question about the JCAT Femto NIC.
  11. They send you a list of settings after you order the card. I am sure that most of these are generic best practice and can be found in other threads here but since the settings are really part of what they sell I feel like I should honor their work by not passing them on. Perhaps you could email Marcin directly to see if he is open to sharing them.
  12. I checked the web site and looked for a recent thread here but could not find out if there is a discount on AO for existing users. I have happily used AO for several years and will gladly pay full price for the new version but would not turn down a discount if available 🙂
  13. Does anyone know why Qobuz in CarPlay only works with files locally cached on your iPhone? If I play the Qobuz app on my iphone through my car system it works fine with streamed music.
  14. In many ways your system is a like mine. I have not tried Euphony yet due to lack of time. It seems as if at a certain level of system refinement and investment one arrives at the flattening section of the curve. The recording quality starts to be the limiting factor. One now moves into the territory of personal preference rather than obvious improvement. Increasingly I find that system changes simply sound "different", not necessarily better or worse. I have a Roon server/endpoint setup with AL/ramroot on the endpoint. In some ways this is better than my previous Dante/AOIP/Win2016 system ...but not in all ways. I often find AL to be a little dry or even bright. Perhaps this Fall when I get a bit more time I will try Euphony. I would really love to make a one-box solution work. I look forward to hearing any detailed and blatantly subjective impressions of the SQ differences that others have found between AL and Euphony...
