  1. I'm on 1.4.6 and can't seem to update to 1.4.9. Also, 44.1Khz files aren't playing through Squeezelite anymore.
  2. @austinpop and I compared the Sablon to two different Intona cables and a Habst cable, but I'll let him speak to the differences because he probably took notes.
  3. I heard it at RMAF. It has the same effect as the SOtM tX-USB Ultra: bigger image, more natural-sounding. Which is better remains to be tested...
  4. The Farad (Pink Faun) power supply is promising. @auricgoldfinger and I tested against my SR7MR2DRXL and thought it sounded pretty close. I could have been having an off day with my hearing since I had done a lot of driving earlier in the day. Rest assured that the Farad will be tested again against my SR7 soon.
  5. Interesting, keep in mind that the SOtM tX-USB Ultra is very sensitive to power supplies and scales up nicely. So if you acquire a SR7, it'll sound even better.
  6. I've heard the original SOtM Ultra versus the UltraRendu and preferred the SOtM Ultra. I've also heard the SOtM Ultra versus the SOtM Ultra Neo and preferred the Neo.
  7. He only liked the ZENith SE better on my system versus his NUC and Adrian's DS-1 and has never said that the SOtM Trifecta is better than the SE.
  8. Yes, I believe it does if you use a Paul Hynes SR7DR to power it.
  9. It's completely the opposite with Magnepans if you have the tweeters on the inside, i.e., the sweet spot is tiny.
  10. I said that I doubt I could distinguish blind. Then we blinded him, and to his surprise, he picked the ZENith. Prior to blinding him, he thought he could easily hear the difference.
  11. @austinpop and I tested his NUC versus my ZENith SE. In blind testing, he picked the ZENith. However, the NUC was not on the Synergistic Research Tranquility UEF base.
  12. Innuous SE to tX-USB Ultra via USB to the Ayre. There was no endpoint.
  13. @thyname We tested it with the Innuous SE as Roon Core.
  14. @austinpop and I tested LAN versus USB with the Ayre QX-5 Twenty, and surprisingly, the system sounded better through USB--at least with a SOtM tX-USB Ultra behind it.
  15. @auricgoldfinger, @austinpop, and I got together yesterday and had a jolly-good time! I'll post some quick comments about some of our testing. 1. JS-2 versus Paul Hynes SR7MR2DRXL Interestingly, we could not really distinguish the two when powering the SOtM tX-USB Ultra. This could have been caused by the fact that the tX is in the middle of the chain in my system because it's followed by a dX-USB Ultra to my Schitt Yggy. The difference was more noticeable when we compared the JS-2 versus the SR7 on the modded SOtM OCX10 with the SR7 besting the JS-2.
