  1. Fiber optic technology is not easy. There are some hurdles to overcome. 😉 Fiber optic cable There are a variety of fiber optic cables available. It must match the transceiver. The attenuation factor is important because if the attenuation is too low, the receiver is dazzled and if the attenuation is too high, no signal can be received. I prefer single mode because the fiber optic core has less scatter. I use an inexpensive one SF LC UPC to LC UPC Duplex OS2 Single Mode PVC (OFNR) 2.0mm Fiber Optic Patch Cable and it works fine.
  2. Maybe 😄 I have the The XILINX Solarflare Flareon Ultra SFN8522. There is none 8552.
  3. i9-9900K 😉 Thanks for the experience report with AMD. I don't like AMD because even in the latest Ryzen 9 generation it still has higher latencies than Intel.

  4. Yes, I received it for my Denafrips Terminator Plus. unfortunately I couldn't get it to work. In Windows 10, the card was recognized immediately, but there was no music. I've had all iterations of the Denafrips. The Denafrips left and the T + A SDV 3100 HV came. 😄 I swap I2S for USB with OXCO Clock (not the very expensive one). It sounds just as good as the JCAT USB XE. But the Pink Faun card is very sensitive to the integration in Windows 10. I had to reactivate all deactivated services that I had deactivated for optimization. This is of course unpleasant. I haven't fi
  5. In order not to disturb the other thread, I give the answer here. 😉 Without a heat sink, the card would not work. I also know this picture, but the Solarflare 8522 card only comes with heatsink as far as I know. The mounting holes can be seen in the picture.
  6. @Nenon I very much apologize for disturbing your thread with my Solaflare Card reports. Questions about this are perhaps better off in my thread. I suggest we all focus now on the great DIY Taiko Audio products. Here are the HDPLEX dimensions for comparison.
  7. I don't have the plus version. And I'm just noticing that this card doesn't support OnLoad at all. One less reason to switch to Linux. 😄 Here is an overview: 8000 Series 10/40GbE Network Adapters
  8. Linux scared me off too. I don't know about it. if I then read through the numerous Linux installation problems with the HQPlayer, I don't feel like doing it. Solarflare provides the appropriate Windows drivers. Except for OnLoad, everything can be used.
  9. I think that runs contrary to low latencies. The manual says: There are three metrics that should be considered when tuning an adapter: • Throughput • Latency • CPU utilization Transactional (request-response) network applications can be very sensitive to latency whereas bulk data transfer applications are more dependent on throughput. ... Turning off interrupt moderation wants: - generate the most interrupts - give the highest CPU utilization - give the lowest latency - give the biggest reduction in peak throughput.
  10. Yes, with the JCAT Optimo 3 Duo. An absolutely excellent LPS. And yet, powered by the motherboard, the Solarflare 8522 card is so much better. That's right. But I think the Solarflare 8522 card have their part in that. The latency is reportedly in the very low range of less than 1μsec.
  11. The JCAT NET Card FEMTO is well behind Solarflare. I don't have the XE version. Yes, I am aware of that. Solarflare is a Diva. 😄 I was happy to get it to run well. According to the manual, I have set the network card adapter to the lowest possible latency. Have a look at this: DSD 256 x 48. The sound is fantastic. Can OnLoad also be set in Windows? As far as I know, this only works on Linux.
  12. The Solarflare SFN8522 is absolutely awesome! A dream in terms of sound. I reported here:
  13. What does that mean? Are there any dropouts? Purely from the technical specs, it should work: CPU cores 8 Threads 16 Base Clock 3.8GHz Max Boost Clock Up to 4.7GHz
  14. for free 👍 follow this instructions: DIY Project High Performance Audio PC with high quality wiring
  15. I agree to @Miska with Windows 10. I tried Windows Server 2019 and I didn't like it. The sound was okay, but not better and not everything works on a server license. The optimization of the operating system is important. I use AudiophileOptimizer for this, but not only. All components and the software are optimized for the lowest possible latencies. If it looks like that, then I'm fine. I think everyone has their own preferences. 😉
