  1. @dylanesque I had one for a few weeks some years ago. I liked it but it died and was returned to Music Direct. I switched to a balanced system at the time and did not reorder. A couple of years later I considered buying another one but Music Direct advised against it saying customers with high end systems are invariably disappointed. Instead I got on the waitlist for the Decware ZRock 2. I’m 4 months in, with about the same to go.

    Reluctantly selling the venerable tube rectified Border Patrol SE-i Dac. Bought new directly from Border Patrol in August of 2020. In like new condition. The SE-i model features the Jupiter beeswax film and foil signal capacitors, a custom R-core power transformer, and a ELNA Cerafine power supply reservoir capacitor. This is the USB version. Paid $1450 new. Asking $950 + shipping/ PayPal. “With the tube switched in the circuit, the BorderPatrol DAC is all about the flow of the music. Unlike the majority of digital converters I have sampled, I seemed to relax when I listen to this unit. I become involved and interested in the music and not the component. I listened longer and deeper into the structure of the music.”. - The Audio Beatnik “The BorderPatrol SE-i DAC seems to scrape the burned part off the digital toast so you can put on your butter and jam and simply enjoy it. Yet it doesn’t sound like any highs are filtered. So while neither detail nor resolution seems in any way compromised, there is a relaxed feeling to the sound.” - Part Time Audiophile

  4. Where does one enable DoP for the mR?
  5. Aloha @Miska & Everyone, I recently bought a Marantz SACD 30n. If I use a direct USB connection between the M1 Mac Mini to the Marantz and play a DSD file using Roon with hqplayer, the DSD makes it the Marantz as DSD. If I connect the Mac to the network and use a microrendu 1.4 to connect to the Marantz, the DSD becomes pcm at whatever the PCM rate is set to in hqplayer. This happens if hqplayer is set to source, pcm, or DSD. Remove the mR 1.4 and go back to straight USB, with the Roon/hqplayer combo, and DSD again reaches the Marantz normally.
  6. Revisiting CDs has been like a chance meeting with an old and dear friend....
  7. Well, I had tried mightily last night to get it to work, but for some reason, XLD is working like a champ today. It's possible to open a folder as a disc, and then burn that disc. I had tried this many times before, and it didn't work. But it's working now. Have no idea why other than the Mac Mini was off over night. There's another app called "Burn" that works, but doesn't have XLD's lossless pedigree. dbpoweramp's CD Writer function seems to be Windows only. I've sort of gone back in time. I recently bought a Marantz Model 30 integrated amp and am eye
  8. Lately, I’ve enjoyed getting away from music playback on the computer. And I’ve found it actually sounds better than my Roon HQPLAYER microrendu rig. I have XLD, which I use for ripping, but can’t figure out how to use its burn feature. I think Max is just a ripper. dbpoweramp seems to have CD Writer feature, I’ll check it out. Thanks.
  9. Aloha, I have various redbook files I’d like to burn to audio CD, in the best, most accurate audiophile way reasonably possible. Is there a Mac equivalent to Exact Audio Copy? How do Mac audiophiles go about such things? Thanks
  10. Have decided to put this back up for sale. Difficult decision as it's such a great amp!

  13. Yes, tried it both ways. The same settings that worked with the 2018 Mac Mini, aren't working with the M1. Perplexing. Ideas?
  14. The iOS app for HQPlayer, I think there's only one. Firewall is not blocking. It all worked fine on the intel 2018 Mac Mini. But stopped working with the M1. The iOS iPad app does not connect to HQPlayer as before.
  15. Ever since upgrading to a M1 Mac Mini, the HQP remote app will no longer connect to HQP. I've made sure the network connections option is enabled in HQP. Ideas?
