  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 .
  4. 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.
  5. Did you guys release a Kernel Cheq. First or after a v4.81 upgrade??
  6. 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??
  7. They sure have a very good quality performance on service; May is Amazing!!
  8. Update process is stopped bij SotM . Latest version is now 4.7 again Instead of v4.8.
  9. 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.
  10. 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..
  11. 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..
  12. 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 ..
  13. 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!
  14. 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.
  15. I,m referring to the brandnew 11-03 dated firmware upgrade VO 4.7
  16. I know but with a NUC its noproblem at all; it regulates the real power inside of the Nuc..
  17. Yes , you can easily play from 12v-20volts. It wil establish the power inside of the nuc..
  18. By this expression I mean that the Keces sounded a bit more colorful. a bit more Bass and less tight bass and a bit sharper high. Al under some nuance.. I liked the Farad 3 the most.
  19. I have now compared 2 farads extensively with various other power supplies such as S-booster, Keces P8-8amp version and Keces P8 double version 12 and 15 volts and the SotM SpS500 SMPS power supply. I tested them on the Mytek Brooklyn + and the Sotm SmS200 ultra and the SotM tx-usb ultra. At the Farads I opted for the version with Highend Fuses silver and Copper Level 2 cable. The Farad is obeying the winner with a nice tight low and open high. The Sotm comes close and has the advantage that the voltage is switchable. The Keces is the most powerful of the 3 but slightly less balanced in my opinion.
  20. I had the sotm 200ultra and now have the neo version. a slight difference between both devices in sound quality. If you have a handy technician in the area, he can modify the existing one for 5-50 dollars.
  21. The fact that a product can be improved sometimes has to do with changed insight. sometimes also because external fans discover things. Every product, including Uptone, comes with upgrades; it is up to the consumer to consider whether this is worth the investment.
  22. P.S i,ve you have a ( watch out only)standard version of the s nh-g10 there,s no need to adjust it works both on 9 and 12volts.
