  1. Hello, I'm using a sata to usb adapter for connecting my ssd library to the server. Do you think that a clean power (12v) could improve the SQ? ...and the external power overtop the 5v coming from the server or not?
  2. and USB is not designed fot audio applications...so.. what's your favorite way from a network bridge to the dac?
  3. Reading some tests of the DCS network bridge from which emerges even on the suggestion of the manufacturer that the output to be preferred would be the AES. There are also some streamers with i2s outputs that should be the most direct. And then of course USB outputs always better, galvanically isolated and with interfaces with xmos, fpga etc..che they arrive at very high resolutions What do you think? ... where is the music?
  4. The perfect Ifi support just switched it for a new one. Now everything is sounding very cool, thanks to IFi uk
  5. I'm talking about an Iusb3.0 not Itube. The mac doesn't see the dac, only the internal speakers.
  6. I have a problem with my new Nano Iusb 3.0. Plugged between my MBP retina and my Dacs (xmos usb input) it doesn't work. The 5v row supply the dac but the mac doesn't see it at all. Two different macs, left and right usb ports, various usb cables and...nothing. Any suggestion? USB 3.0 issue?
  7. thank you Samuel...I don't know what to do now. I open a ticket with Ifi but it seems on a dead end track...
  8. Yes I did it several times. I tried "on" and "auto". The dac are Aqua Formula and Audio Analogue Vivace, various usb cables...
  9. The dac is xmos based. I use it with a light speed usb (double head) and the 5v line is ok, I can use it just like a power supply. But I tried a wireworld starlight and others normal cables and the output 5v+data crash or slow down the mac...
  10. A new Ifi Nano Iusb3.0 plugged between my MBP retina and my Dac (xmos usb input) doesn't work. The 5v row supply the dac but the mac doesn't see it at all. Two different macs, left and right usb ports, various usb cables and...nothing. Any suggestion? USB 3.0 issue? thanks guys!
  11. Is your dac using the usb 5v not only for the handshake..? I would like to try on my system.
  12. Break the noisy USB power, but in the correct way There are more than a few products that break the USB power connection, but of the ones known to us, they do very little because the noisy ground connection remains. For DACs that do not use USB power (except for handshake) the iDefender3.0® breaks the ground connection eliminating earth loops, while allowing normal handshake operation to continue. So in terms of cutting out the noise, it does it in the most comprehensive way possible while at the same time, in an electrically correct way.
