  1. We exchanged emails last week about the SR4. June’s production batch is being worked on this week, and should be shipping next week.
  2. http://www.soundkeeperrecordings.com/kaysa.htm Amazing performance, and incredible recording by @bdiament On repeat today...
  3. Larry, when you have shared your listening impressions vs the various other configurations, were you using A:.WY1122 B : .WY1122? (LMSG360
  4. I should clarify. I ordered both over the past 4-7 months. I expect the SR4 hopefully this summer, but woth Paul working on the mid teens for the SR7, might be another couple years. I hope he is able to get into a groove and start cranking out a couple a month, so I get to see mine in 2020 (my hearing isn’t getting any better!!) The silver lining for me is that well probably have gone through a couple more waves of server strategies by then (I’m sticking to my NUCs until my SR7 arrives)
  5. In my experience with Sean, his communication and follow through has been impeccable (and I adore the custom supply he built for me). Absolutely hassle/stress free interaction, met my delivery expectations to a "T", and well exceeded my expectations on impact to my system. Everyone that I know that has worked with him has a similar story. Unqualified recommendation from me. I am still waiting on my SR4 and SR7 (might be several years for me...build #31), so I can't speak to whether the hassle of is worth the wait.
  6. Returned to an old favorite this morning:
  7. Must have had a cancellation. I ordered mine end of March for the end of June batch.
  8. Congratulations! To clarify, did you order it in February, or is this the February scheduled ship batch that is currently shipping? (I ordered one in March, with a target June ship date)
  9. Interesting....in my "stuck in traffic, thinking of all the things I could experiment with but will never have time to actually do", I was contemplating hacking the Squeezelite code to present two end points to Roon: one large buffer one and one regular one (basically a control path with the small buffer end point, and a bulk transfer path with the large buffer end point). Roon Core could then stream to both, but the bulk transfer path (connected to the DAC) would sync with the control path directly, and Roon could happily stay in sync with the control path (basically a proxy to maintain sync). Plan B would have been to have the control path end point process run on the server itself, and have the two end point processes stay in sync over the network (to further minimize network traffic to the actual end point connected to the DAC). Of course, the best answer would have been for Roon to actually fix the sync issues to large buffered end points, but alas, there dragons dwell. Thankfully for all of us, Željko is actually doing the work to make it work! I am very excited to hear the results and support his efforts! Thanks to you and Roy for the advocacy and pushing things forward!
  10. I have been assuming that the skipping and freezing we hear going from Roon core to large buffer Squeezelite was related to Roon and how it interacts with SL (Roon has to jump through all sorts of hoops to do the multi-zone thing...I assumed this is what was messing up large buffer end points). Do you have a sense of what they needed to do to get Roon to play nice with a large buffer end point? Can't wait to hear the beast!
  11. I'm using these in my NUC7i7DNKE. I no longer have my NUC7CJYH, but I'm pretty sure I used these same antenna when I did (I replaced my NUC7CJYH with a second NUC7i7DNKE) I had these as well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01E29HV38 These for sure fit the NUC7CJYH, but less clean to have loose wire coming out of the Akasa case.
  12. I struggled a bit trying to find same when I moved my NUCs to Asaka cases. After a couple failed orders from Amazon, I ended up just searching for the WiFi card and ended up with these: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01E29566W/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  13. #31...1/2 way there! (4 months to 4 years to go
  14. Have you tried tightening the bolts on the unit? I've been reminded a couple times recently that the mechanical nature of the transformers is a big part of buzzing
