  1. You really need to be patient, and purchase the EtherRegen 😀 (Or even two)
  2. Whatever you do with cables: Make sure there is no earth connection. That doesn’t rule out plugs with metal, but in general most of them. One example is the Audioquest Vodka that has metal plugs. It will work. Probably heavenly overpriced as most audiophile cables 😀 Blue Jeans is a very good choice. My link previous post another good option. And please rember, that even it there was a general recommendation for using a one meter cable before, that is NOT the case with EtherRegen. So length shouldn’t matter. Serach Johns post in this tread. Sould be something about it there in details. So hopefully we can leave the cable discussion dead. It’s a bit OT 😀 However it is relevant whenever there will be a tread about how the EtherRegen sound quality. (Ops. A switch with SQ 😀. Yes, that’s that’s what we all expect. And it’s already proven by OpticalModule, and some other overpriced options).
  3. This is for Alex at UpTone Audio to answer. John is the developed or designer of several nice products. I’ve noticed this is your first post. And I can’t answer for his (Alex) @Superdad, bundles options, but don’t expect it to happen with is low margins explained many times. But you can save some shipping cost probably purchasing both at the same time. If you’re after a LPS-1.2, look at the “Novel thread’ as it so happens austinpop is selling his, and just PM him. Welcome to the forum 😀
  4. Powering the EtherRegen with the LPS-1 with the original Meanwell supplied that has the ground shunt implemented. (Modified Meanwell) Shall that ground pin in EtherRegen be used or not ? Will your answer be same for LPS-1.2 ? (Yes I know this has been answered, but sometimes an answer that requires a YES / NO, just gets to confusing 😀)
  5. @JohnSwenson If technical possible, can an optical version of the EtherRegen be made. Meaning exchange the RJ45 B side with a SFP cage ? I think not, as the present design requires the B side to be 100 MHz, and since the reason for this request is to connect the opticalRendu, a 100 mH optical interface won’t work. (OpticalRendu requires 1000 MHz) So I ask again using a gigabit only RJ-45 SFP transceiver on the opticalRendu https://amzn.to/2XbBAJA be a better solution than using the EtherRegen “the reverse way”. Edit wrong link. Has to be this one 10/100/1000 MHz version. So at least the 100 MHz will talk to the B side. And will actually such a RJ-45 SFP transceiver work when B side is 100 MHz and the opticalRendu is 1000 MHz. Normally not of cause, but maybe the use of a RJ-45 SFP transceiver can overcome that issue. Again, if expect working, is it still a better solution, and possible to explain why if it isn’t.
  6. I have long time believed it was as easy as just use the EtherRegen “reverse way” in order to connect the EtherRegen to the opticalRendu. And maybe add my SonicTransporter as well. As I expect none of the A side ports would affect the SFP port. Now I’m wondering if I should put a opticalModule between the EtherRegen and the opticalRendu in order to have the signal going “right” way. Or even a second EtherRegen. Or maybe add a RJ45 SPF module on opticalRendu in order to use the output B side of the EtherRegen ? Maybe I’m complicating this to much..... Any thoughts ? (Hope you have enough bourbon 😀)
  7. None of the above if I understand you correctly. And what you suggest probably doesn’t make much sense either. Several excellent DAC’s doesn’t have USB interface, or maybe a bad USB implementation. And for streaming you need USB. In my case no USB available in my DAC. Hence I need the USB to SPDIF converter. And there should be possible to make something even better than the Singxer ones. Purchasing a DAC with USB interface that is better than my Theta Generation VIll, or the Casablanca 4a, will probably cost me 20 to 50 times more than a well designed USB to SPDIF converter from John and Uptone. But I don’t know the marked for such a device. I’m convinced @JohnSwenson has the skill and knowledge to design such a product within Uptone price range, which seems to be within an affordable 3 digits for a product at world class 😀 An interesting discussion of such a product would be if it should be driven by Vbus power or not. Or maybe even the option to choose between Vbus or the LPS-1.2. But now we’re way OT.
  8. Those of us that have no alternative need a usb to SPDIF converter. If you could make something better than the Singxer SU-1 or SU-6, it would help those of few of us that need an external converter. Maybe the marked isn’t big enough to defend a development of such a device ? Or maybe it can be part of another future product 😀 I think you mentioned you and John has ideas that can keep you occupied for next three years, so whatever will come, I’m looking forward to it.
  9. My understanding is there isn’t any difference in using optical vs RJ45 A-side and then cross over to B-side.
  10. @JohnSwenson Why would you probably not recommend a protective cap and the BNC plug ? Is these items just marketing BS ? @Superdad I don’t mind paying an extra $5, if you or John advice use of such blind plugs. I know you can even add RJ45 protective caps, but I suppose you don’t endorse those either ?
  11. Is this a new LPS-1 or something similar ?
  12. Have a look at Darko’s latest video. I think you will like it. 😀 (DCS review and compared to DAVE).
  13. I like this idea. What would it cost pr. test ? And should we add some DAC’s as well and the In the measurement chain ? I’m asking what would be a fair setup ? Including power supplies.
