  1. I want to try the Digital signature but the case they supply is too cheap looking. You can assume since they haven’t replied to this thread they don’t care or could be having financial troubles
  2. I have owned the Aurender ACS10 for over a month. The unit has ripped over 300 CDs without issue, sounds great connected by USB to my dCS Debussy DAC, and acrs as a server for my audio room and my network connected NAD M10. A pricey bit of hardware, but coupled with an excellent application, 16TB of storage (8TB in RAID), CD ripping, streaming, and excellent sound this device will surely please any audiophile.
  3. I would recommend that people don’t waste money on upgraded fuses. Use your money on things that will enhance your system’s performance and avoid tweaks that have no credible objective or subjective data on their performance.
  4. LOL! Photos of electronic internals compared to source code? REALLY?!? There are no secrets with electronic parts, just the ability for the end user to see where the manufacturer cut corners and used low grade components.
  5. The Lumin mini is ethernet only. I have a Netgear Orbing with a satellite and use Ethernet from the satellite. I have also used ethernet over power lines and that has also worked very well. Don't sacrifice quality without exploring options to connect the Lumin U1 mini. For the money there is nothing better...IMO.

  7. I use Time Machine and create a full backup bootable drive with SuperDuper monthly. I believe two backup strategies work best. I have used Carbon Copy cloner and prefer SuperDuper.
  8. Got the new DCS Network Bridge and connected it to a DCS Debussy DSC using two AES/EBU cables. Stunning sound with DSD 128 running over DOP. All resolutions sound more dynamic with a wider soundstage than my previous Direcstream DAC/Lumin U1 combo. Running it 7*24 to help it burn in, but a definite upgrade for my system. Very happy with the new combination.
  9. *** WARNING - Dumb Questions Posting *** I have a new Network Bridge coming in the next week or so. I plan to connect it to my Debussy DAC using dual AES/EBU connections. Should I connect the clock out from the NB to the Debussy Clock input? Not sure about this function and if it would work or if it is necessary AI missing anything here regarding the connections? Can I connect the clock from the NB To the Debussy and will improve the sound quality? I currently have an Aurender N10 that I will be selling as I want to get back to using Roon (lifetime license) and have an all DCS solution. I do have a NAS, and also don’t need the server portion of the N10. I will compare the sound of the NB side by side, but everything I have read tells me the NB will sound better. I’m looking forward to getting my new NB soon!
  10. Thanks. I previously filtered by the network bridge. I see the complete list now
  11. I see from dCS’s website there are two dealers in the USA. One of the dealers - hifibuys - doesn’t have any DCS products on their site. The only other US dealer is listed in NY. Where are people buying their Network Bridges in the US? thanks in advance for any assistance. Looking to buy one now.
  12. No, but I did notice today it played a 192 file and both AES lights on the Debussy lit up. I couldn’t duplicate it by laying the file a second time. I reset the Debussy to factory default. Still no go.
