  1. And they are right. As i said before a standard sms200 with tx-usb ultra is the better choice in my opinion.
  2. Edward, i,ve acted the same as Hans advised me too. But after that i,ve missed my Tx usb ultra. But you have to decited for yourself. . There no one truth in this. Perhaps start with a Sotm Sms200ultra and ask your dealer for a trial period at home.In both cases you play on a very high level wich increases with a special PSU SPS500 (you evently can feed them both with a Y cable).
  3. Edward, Hans gave me the same advice. Before that i had a standard sms200 with my tx usb ultra. The sms200ultra is certainly better. You can also start with the ultra and try a tx-usb later. Or other wise..
  4. No unfortunally. Although i,m a proud owner of a sms200ultra neo. The tx-usb ultra is still the biggest upgrade in my opinion.
  5. Ik go for choice 2 but you can also buy cheap a standard Sms 200 for starters..
  6. Both Cloks have to have the same Mhz to lock them together. A good dealer or SotM directly (May Park) can provide you the best option.
  7. Youre right, the tx usb ultra is the better update and possibly a SPS 500 Powersupply. You can feed them both with the PSU at the same time.
  8. Buy a new card 16gb for a new back-up. Save the last one for just in case something goes wrong or je have to go back..
  9. Hello Ted, Nice to see that you are working on it. we are on the same line! Power cords and cables can make a big difference; as well as the internal fuse in the Farad3. There is more profit to be made there than yet another LPS. Keep us informed if you want! Incidentally, Farad also has an excellent level 2 silver cable available.
  10. Dear Tedwoods, you couldn't have put it into a cup. The SotM SpS500 is an excellent power supply and does many LPS power supplies such as Teddy Pardo, Keces HDplex and SBooster in dust bites on SotM equipment. The Farad3 was the first to make a real difference. More dynamic in the image, Tighter low and especially the top high is phenomenal. Incidentally, it is important to use a good fuse and at least level2 connection cable. Last but not least, it is important to place the power supply as close to the unit as possible to keep the cable as short as possible ...Though as said before it isn,t like night and day. If you have the Sps500 stick to it.
  11. The SPS 500 is an excellent PSU. And an normal LPS isn,t always the better one. Some sounds very bolt and brainless..Though the Farad3 LPS is an improvement on the SmS200ultra. You have to order the right voltage 9 or 12v .
  12. This is the official SotM reaction from May Park:The latest kernel version is 4.18.19-214, you can do the kernel check afterwards, but actually it is not the matter when you are doing it. You can keep updating the kernel version to the latest version.
  13. Did you guys release a Kernel Cheq. First or after a v4.81 upgrade??
  14. Thanks for your information! It,s very important to read your reports. A Question for anyone what the best place to connect a harddrive flac,s with Roon. The NUC or better straight to the SotM SmS200ultra??
  15. They sure have a very good quality performance on service; May is Amazing!!
  16. Update process is stopped bij SotM . Latest version is now 4.7 again Instead of v4.8.
  17. I,ll better have a Tx-usb ultra with a Sms 200 ultra . But in case you feed youre dac directly from a computer a tx-usb ultra transforms it in highend in stead of stereo.
  18. Of course an improvement is possible; but before spendings shiploads of money on an endpoint you better try the tx-usbultra first...guaranteed an improvement in any situation..
  19. Absolutely the SotM txusb ultra is an improvement in any DAC situation. Though its worth while to try it first after a 50-100 hours burn in..
  20. for an additional improvement it is worth considering purchasing a SotM TX usb ultra instead of replacing it with another streamer where you will unfortunately get little sound profit ..
  21. You will be very glad! The Farad,s are great PSU though they need a burn in time and the connection DC cable is one of the vital parts; take a level 2 cord!
  22. I,ll have both cables. The standard one and the Level 2 silverwire. The last one sounds more owerfull and refined. The tops are smoother. Definitely a solid improvement.
  23. I,m referring to the brandnew 11-03 dated firmware upgrade VO 4.7
