  1. I have a similar issue with my Alldaq USB isolator, sometimes it doesn't get recognized when i boot up my PC. The only way of fixing that is unplugging the wallwart and plug it back in. Sometimes, however it's enough to disconnect the USB cable either from the PC or from the Isolator to your DAC. Next time the PC isn't detecting the DAC try disconnecting the DAC from the Intona and connect it back in. Try both variants, disconect from the PC the USB cable that goes to the Intona . Then it should work, however it maybe that you need to do that everytime you turn on your
  2. Hey I am selling 1x Rare Philips E88CC (6922/6Dj8) SQ from 1960 Heerlen factory (Netherlands) SQ stands for special quality, low noise factory selected tubes. Test results are: Tested on ELPO P-508 = 11/10 mA! Price : 45$ I ship anywhere from Switzerland for around 10-15$. Very good price, they sell for much more on Ebay https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR1.TRC0.A0.H0.Xphilips+e88cc+sq.TRS0&_nkw=philips+e88cc+sq&_sacat=0 and even more on other websites https://www.tube
  3. I have a Khadas Tone Board which costs around 95usd and without isolator there is a very noticeable degradation in sound quality. The question is am allocating my money poorly? Spend 420$ on the Intona for a 100$ DAC? I asked opinions in the Headphone Headquarters Discord server, and they were still making jokes about me 3 days later wanting to spend 400bucks on a USB isolator which would give no benefit whatsoever paired with a 100$ DAC and that I should rather invest my money in a Soekris 1321 DAC. On the ASR Forum i have been told that a well engineered DAC can deal with incomin
  4. Thank you very much for your answer, very enlightening, i'd pay you a beer for it! I don't quite understand what you mean by going toe-to-toe with the Sinxer. Go toe-to-toe because you assume that your isolator is better or because you would be curious to know how would come ahead? I would be curious to know, how important is reclocking and all that stuff (femto-clock etc) in your USB isolator? Let's say we assign points to the quality of the sound with and without your ISO regen, the sound quality is 100 with your isolator and 0 without.
  5. Hey thank you very much for your answer. I decided against the Intona back then because of it's ugly plastic casing and i heard in this forum that it adds an unnatural sheen to the sound. While the Alldaq got a very good review being fully transparent which i can confirm. The ISO regen was much pricier also i live in Europe. Should i decide to buy an Intona i would buy one of the newer models which they claim is much superior and that would be indeed around the same price of the ISO Regen. The Intona somehow gives a better impression. There is also a japanes
  6. Hey The reason I am asking is, I personally am using an isolator from Alldaq https://shop.alldaq.com/Interfaces/USB-3-0-Isolators/ALLDAQ-ADQ-USB-3-0-ISO-PS-3-0-Isolator-incl-Power-Supply::143382.html and I am having a rather annoying issue with it. Basically it does not have an on/off switch so when it's plugged in directly to the wall, even if my PC is turned off it continuously draws power and also powers my Khadas tone board. Also then I am having issues with distortion and PC crashing, I thought my GPU was faulty until to get rid of all those leds burning 24/7 I co
  7. I think i was wrong, reclocking is one of those terms that gets misused a lot. Anyway most usb isolators use reclocking, intona and alldaq included, same thing. The japanese one on the other hand, regenerates (repeats) the signal with an IC repeater, I think that's a more costly approach .
  8. I could do that, what i mean by 100% transparent, it doesn't alter/color the sound, it simply removes all the noise and puts the signal back to it's original clock. In a system where there is very little noise, let's say you are using a battery powered laptop and you have good cables, a good dac... with or without the alldaq isolator there might be very little difference in sound quality. But if you are using a desktop PC and a lot of noise is getting carried over via USB the difference will be much bigger. It simply not doing anything to the sound signature
  9. It costs 110 dollars less than the intona so it might still be the better buy, if we would assume that they perform equally well.
  10. Well no i didn't compare them directly myself but, from what i have read from people that bought it that the Intona adds a sort of unnatural sheen to the sound, that's what Manisandher said in the thread here https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/34683-usb-audio-cracked-finally/#comments, among others who have bought it. The Alldaq on the otherhand is 100% transparent it doesn't add anything. It costs the same as the Intona but is USB 3.0 compatible + aluminum casing which is always better. at the end of the day i don't care
  11. Lol no And you shouldn't do such accusations out of the blue. Just trying to help. I had a ground loop with my PC so i did a lot of research. Just sharing what i found I payed 264usd for that thing here in Switzerland, but the Intona would have costed pretty much the same. If i was on a higher budget i would have bought an USB isolator from Japan, because i am sucker for japanese stuff, but i managed to resist. There are other isolators too, i am gonna list them from cheapest to most expensive: 1. Delock USB 2.0 Isolator with 3 kV Isolation, arou
