  1. Same here. The SOtM is between the router and ER. Fiber connects SOtM and ER
  2. If this hasn’t yet been shared, Jord has advised the cost to make Brian’s mods to the S100 is est. $1800 US. + VAT. That would bring total including S100 to $3700+. The good news: These changes can be turned around in 2-3 days
  3. GREAT review, Rajiv!! As usual, you take more time and effort, and exceed all expectations! Very illuminating with specific POVs that still allow us to ponder, but now with more and better info. Congrats to @JohnSwenson and Alex for creating a great new switch at an affordable price!
  4. Rajiv -- thanks for all you do! I'll be glad to share what I've done, as I am enjoying sounds I never would have imagined (compared to where I was) without the help of this forum's contributors and you. Know I am not a DIY (although I did manage to create add the JSSG shielding to my Lush cables!), so my process has been to read the discussions in this topic, learn and pick my spots. I got engaged Summer 2017 and the attached schematic is where I am presently. My system has been developed almost entirely from information uncovered in this topic thread, personal messages with Rajiv
  5. @austinpop So Rajiv, what is the server you have embedded Euphony + Stylus into? Is it the one you had built for yourself?
  6. I have now added artwork for whatever was missing among 1845 artists. Each is sized to fill the screen (rectangular) and in png format. Everything has slowed to crawl. Search. Play. Everything. Pls help me fix this picture.
  7. @Thank you for the nice introduction, @Superdad I just got my new SOtM 9v switch today - with CLK, 75ohm REF10 port, silver, the whole enchilada. Installed nicely and powered by the UpTone LPS 1.2 which I enjoy more than the standard SOtM 9v power supply. My baseline was a SOtM-modded Netgear FS108 switch pigtailed to the SOtM txUSB ultra so the switch would take advantage of the ultra’s better clock, as well as the REF10/Habst cable the ultra had been modded to accept. Now the REF10 directly controls clocks on the USB ultra and new SOtM switch. I’m only 3 hrs. int
  8. Thanks and Happy Holidays to Rajiv, Eric, Romaz and all the other CAs for sharing their time, knowledge and experiences. My SQ compared to original has improved more than I could imagine over the last year. While more a beneficiary than a contributing experimenter, I hope to soon share some thoughts on SQ impact when I: - replace an SOtM modded Netgear108 with the new SOtM switch (with upgraded capacitors + silver) - replace the pigtail from the tx-USB ultra’s clock and REF10 with rhe REF10/Habst directly cabled to the SOtM switch. In the new configuration ,
  9. Thanks, Alex. Look forward to Feb when you hit the market and we can hear the results of this labor of love. Since I’ve already invested in the REF-10 it will be easy to A/B and pick the best path for my system and ears!
  10. Sorry, if I missed this, Alex. Will your EtherRegen have a Reference clock input port?
  11. Thanks on the cable debate -50 v. 75 ohm- question asked and answered!
  12. Thanks! I will be using Habst which is available in either 50 or 75 so that won’t be a consideration with me, but I appreciate your reply. In your opinion there there is no real difference. Would you feel the same if a 75 cable is used in a 50 ohm REF-10 output to a 50 ohm input? thanks.
  13. Different Question: is 50 or 75 ohm optimal for use with my REF-10? Most of what I read in this forum or others seems to suggest 75 is better. Here’s what May/SOtM told me: -> Normally 10MHz signal use 50 ohm cable. And word clock or SPDIF signal use 75 ohm cable. If you want to connect audio signal or clock signal in long distance like CATV signal, the 75 ohm is better. But, for most cases, audio application is not needed to connect in long distances. So 50ohm cable is better than 75 ohm cable. Do you agree with this?
  14. Rajiv, it’s not you. I’m just easily confused! Thanks for the additional clarification.
