  1. My experience too. I may try one more time though.
  2. Thanks to both of you. I confirmed my Denefrips DAC needs the 5v power. I tried it with and without adding power to the Slimline cable and couldn’t get it to work either way. I read a discussion somewhere that maybe the power added at the pc end couldn’t be carried over the fiber to the DAC end. I had this working once before but it was with a different DAC.
  3. Didi you ever solve this issue? I also couldn't get the monoprice to work with my Denefrips Venus ll.

  6. My listening experiences with Pareto goes back a little over two years when I first bought an Endpoint then a Server from then NUCklehead @lmitche. I wrote about the experience in the Novel Way thread here: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/30376-a-novel-way-to-massively-improve-the-sq-of-computer-audio-streaming/page/510/#comments Fast forward two happy listening years and lots of interaction with Larry as he continued to tinker and develop both new tweaks for improved sound quality and new servers. At the end of last year I decided to take the plunge and get a new server. I like to keep my components out of sight (in a cabinet) and just focus on the music. Larry worked with me on how best to accommodate this since his new server is bigger than my old one. The beauty of his new approach is the fiber allows the server, the ethernet to USB converter, and the 3 associated power supplies to be remote from the listening room. I have taken advantage of this and put them in my basement which dramatically decreased the real estate I had to dedicate to components in the listening room. I’ve taken advantage of this and built a new (smaller) cabinet for the DAC and Preamp. This makes me very happy - separate from any sound quality improvements. Reading the AS site always reminds me how bad I am at describing audio sound quality. But I will give it a try. The best way I have of describing the sound of the new server is bigger, richer, and fuller - granted, not your typical audiophile terms. I would have described my first NUCklehead server this way too, but this new AMD server is much fuller. I have a small listening room so the sound stage has never been very large, but now it feels much bigger, taller and deeper. And richer. The bass is richer, the voices are richer, and the top end sparkles. The clarity / coherence has also been kicked up a notch. A Richard Thompson song that I know quite well revealed a very subtle brush on a snare drum that I never noticed before. A listen to a favorite album, Miho: Journey to the Mountains by the Paul Winter Consort, also exposes new texture that is clearer and yes, again, richer. A segment with ringing bells is just fabulous. I also listen to several of Bill Evan’s live albums. Waltz for Debby in particular, is quite good. The sound of his playing is much ‘real-er’ (is that a word?) and the sound of Scott LaFaro’s bass work is even more engaging. Even some of the subtleties in the background - quiet chatter, clinking glasses, etc. - comes into much clearer focus with the new server. Not sure of the definition of ‘more musical’, but the music is much more enjoyable and I find myself listening for longer periods of time.. I am a happy camper - until Larry ups the stakes again. Also, I can only reinforce what others have said relative to his level of service - unbelievable. His knowledge of all aspects of this crazy hobby is phenomenal - cables, DACs, amps, etc., and his unsolicited suggestions on ways to improve the sound quality of my system (none of which benefit him) is extremely helpful. The music never sounded better…….
