  1. You should stop posting. You can't seem to help your self promotion. I've held back on several sarcastic comments which come to mind when reading your posts.
  2. When I see a post that contradicts nearly everyone else's, if not everyone's opinions on this subject to date, then I find out he's a vendor for what he's promoting....I no longer trust or believe anything he says. Thanks for stopping by.
  3. Yes, the Core server for system and ethernet clocks. I also have the SOtM switch on loan so it's clicking that. When Uptone's switch comes out I'll likely buy that and it has an external master clock connector.
  4. Done and done with SOtM hardware. The NUC sounds better. Look up my previous posts in this thread.
  5. Has anyone compared using the USB 3 ports direct to the NUC board vs the optional USB 2 ports? Or has anyone compared USB v2 to v3 in general?
  6. Great writeup. Why didn't you consider the Cisco pressing? My understanding is that it's the definitive vinyl version.

Another highly respected production that Mofi gave a special treatment for the second time.
  7. Top removable panel, both sides and a little on the front. All inside the chassis. I didn't do anything with the bottom.
  8. I use the 3M EMI absorber in my SR7 with positive effect.

    The Paul Hynes SR7

    Thanks for putting that in another thread. Edited after I read your thread.

    The Paul Hynes SR7

    Those who have them use them as there's nothing better. It's a niche investment and there likely aren't many compared to other supplies.

    Yea I know. This trade war has had a direct impact. Customs holds up shipments much longer than in the past. I recently got some JSSG360 ethernet cables from Ghent and it took about 3 weeks with expedited shipping. Still, even a 4 week wait is still much shorter than anything from Hynes. Maybe cables take less time from him.

    AudioLinux and NUC Troubleshooting and Tuning

    The Novel Way thread. Where our testing results get shared. This one is specific to AL and NUC tuning. First because it's a lot of cost for potentially little gain. I would have to buy the SOtM switch which I have on loan, then use the clock taps from it for the NUC. The entire effort would be in the $2500 range. I already have a very good TLS switch and what I will share in the other thread is that while there's a difference it's small. Second because I really like what I hear from the NUC and AL now. Maybe the clocks on the NUC are very good and that's part of the equation, we don't know yet. If I tap in new clocks from the sCLK I introduce cabling between the switch and NUC. That has the potential to change the sound. I could also buy a separate sCLK for the NUC itself just to make the cabling a little bit shorter. That is an even higher cost.

    I doubt the adapter makes any difference. I'm using one now as well. I'm curious to see whether there's a difference between Paul's and the JSSG360 stuff. I am now able to run my NUC board at 12v with the SR7. That means my SR7 is also powering my server again. Thanks for that. I also updated my server to lxqt v 3.0.2, running headless (extreme 2) max cpu. I got the SOtM switch and have it connected to my REF10. I'll post in the other thread soon. I think I hit a new benchmark and am running out of tweaks to try. The only thing left is to see if the sCLK helps the NUC, something I'm very hesitant on doing
