  1. So you are currently using a general purpose laptop / computer as a streamer? Computer—-> USB cable —-> DAC? If so, I am afraid the EtherRegen will not do much for you, if anything. My suggestion is to get a dedicated streamer, then try EtherRegen in “supplying” Ethernet to it.
  2. Yes, I own one since first batch November 2019. It will work fine in your case, although not optimal. My suggestion is to use the sole B outlet on most important gadget of your system. Basically crossing the moat on that, with no potential interference from other units. And the EtherRegen is identical when crossing A to B compared to from B to A, provided nothing else is connected on A side. See page 3 of the user manual I linked above
  3. Hi YZ in Santa Barbara. May I suggest you look at the pictures of the EtherRegen? It has one RJ45 outlet in one side, and four of them in the other side. So yes. With the caveat on potential grounding extra step you can read in the very short user manual:
  4. You certainly do NOT need an HC version for PhoenixUSB
  5. Wow!! Truly amazing! Congrats! I cannot help but notice: what do you have both Esoteric K-01XD and Luxman D-10x? Aren't they both SACD players?
  6. Unfortunately Roon forum is dominated by a handful of people who believe NOTHING can improve anything. It’s not worth engaging, as they will pile on you as a bunch of hyenas.
  7. Ghent sells two Ethernet RJ45 cables, both listed as JSSG360. This means they would be OK for EtherRegen, upstream and downstream?
  8. Bingo! I bought Roon Lifetime subscription about three years ago. It was $499 then, and until a few months ago. It is by far the best purchase I have ever made in this hobby
  9. Yes please, let us know how this goes, and what you ultimately end up getting
  10. I have no idea what you just said in here. As long as you know you would need a streamer for the Luxman D-10x, it’s all good. The Tambaqui has a streamer built in, which is Roon Ready certified. That was all my point. Sorry if I sounded confused. The DAC in Luxman D-10x is brand new. No other Luxman has it. Even the chip is made from a company that I had never heard it before. So, if you are looking for opinions on that, you have to wait until people you know and trust try it. Or better yet, try it for yourself. Any comparison/ opinion from other Luxman models is irrelevant.
  11. This one does not have a streamer built in. It’s also $16,750
  12. Did you mean “from a ZENith MK3”? 😂😂 In all seriousness, thanks for sharing your impressions. I gotta try your approach some day. The signature Rendu SE (optical) looks amazing. What are you using as Roon Core? Nucleus?
