  1. Hi Frank, It's an upgrade option that SoTM offer. So the downside is you need to pay for shipping the TX to and back from South Korea. But the upgrade itself is reasonable at approx $200. This link is for the sNH-10G but it describes the same upgrade: https://www.sotm-audio.com/sotmwp/english/shop/additional-changes-for-snh-10g/ A few respected members such as Romaz and Johnseye have said it makes a real difference. I think it's mostly on the Novel Way thread but I'll try to find a link. The LPS-1.2 is pretty darn good. Think you'd need to go for a Paul Hynes SR4 and the associated drama of his notorious delivery schedule to beat it. I've got a Sean Jacobs DC3 ordered and due by end of this month. But that's intended for my NUCs. Am contemplating getting my TX upgraded but on the fence as I'd also like to simplify my setup. Cheers, Alan
  2. Hey Frank, Not sure anyone can really answer re the Innuos Reclocker until they get their hands on it and hear it in action. No disrespect to Innuos but it's a promised future product only at this stage. There might be people out there including perhaps Innuos who can advise on the performance delta between the MKII and MKIII. Meantime there is a 3rd option. People are gushing about the difference the Evox caps & silver wiring makes to the TX-USBUltra. So getting the TX upgraded may be a cheaper way to improve performance whilst you await the USB reclocker reviews. Would also increase the resale value of the TX if you then change direction to the Innuos reclocker. What PSU are you using on the TX-USBUltra? That might also be an area for improvement. Never short of options in the crazy baffling hobby of ours! 😄 Cheers, Alan
  3. Thanks Nuno, I'd imagine that 8 is overkill for most users but 4 would be preferable to 2, for that flexibility you mention. Might be OT and not quite the use-case you had in mind but a few users on this forum and another I keep an eye on have reported the SoTM switch having a beneficial impact on their Netflix streaming quality. This certainly has me intrigued as it would be a great bonus. I'm currently on the fence between buying the SoTM switch or waiting for the Uptone one. More than happy for the good folks at Innuos to give me a dilemma tho 😁 Meantime any updates on the USB relocker would be great as you get closer. Cheers, Alan
  4. Hi Nuno, Good news on the USB reclocker. But is the lan offering an Ethernet reclocker or an Ethernet switch? Thanks, Alan
  5. Thanks Ralf, I was talking to Sean Jacobs last week and that's in line with what he said - ie release this summer. That's why I was annoyed at the 6-8 months more as just seems to keep getting pushed out. Let's see I guess. Cheers, Alan
  6. I like Innuos and their products. I also agree that prioritising the MK3 over the USB reclocker was the right call from a product roadmap perspective. But from a frustrated SE owner perspective it feels like this reclocker has been 6-8 months away for the last 16-18 months. Many first generation SE owners will have parted with their units and moved on by the time Innuos get around to actually offering this upgrade option. Just my two cents and apologies if it's harsh but I'm more likely to sell my SE than wait the rest of the year to see if Innuos make good on this promise. Cheers, Alan
  7. "Perfect for audiophile enthusiasts" First time I've noticed that on the Akasa site. I guess we've been buying a lot of them 😁 Would be more perfect if it would fit on my rack! But interesting all the same. Cheers, Alan
  8. Other thing to consider is whether you're connecting with Root access. User = root P/W = audiolinux0 You need root to edit or create files in Linux
  9. Not sure if it works on a Mac but I use WINSCP for this. See here: If that doesn't work on Mac you should look for the Apple equivalent. Cheers, Alan
  10. https://www.techradar.com/uk/news/amazon-reportedly-releasing-a-hi-res-audio-streaming-service-to-rival-tidal Amazon streaming to hit Prime Time - geddit 😉 No mention of rivalling poor Qobuz Let's all inundate Roon with "when will you support Amazon" requests! Cheers, Alan
  11. Accident of geography, providence, who's to say. All we know is that we're better than you! (I'd better make it clear that's a joke in these Brexit/Trump days of intolerance) Alex all I'm saying is SoTM are on KST which is 16 hours ahead of PST! Uh huh. Food for thought.... 😘
  12. Sorry Alex but PST isn't going to work for me. I can just about cope with EST due to the pesky New York types I deal with. But I'd prefer GMT, or real time as we call it here in the centre of the known universe! Whilst we're at it I'm not crazy about Tuesdays.....😋 Cheers, Alan
  13. Hi @CKKeung, I've been following and enjoying your sNH-G10 thread over at WBF with interest. Well, I'm following it with interest but not sure I'm enjoying the sNH-G10 times 2 part 😳 But I've also read your commentary on the Clones Audio Powerstation Deluxe and am intrigued. There's also a UK dealer I've dealt with before and liked so that adds to the attraction. If you don't mind me asking do you have a single output Powerstation or a double? And any thoughts on how much of a sonic penalty there is in going double output versus single? Many Thanks, Alan
  14. No deal! Nope! Not doing it. My system is just sound soooooo damn good right now, I ain't tinkering with anything 😋 Cheers, Alan
