  1. Both my ER and LPS 1.2 run quite warm/hot. Should I power them off when not in use or just leave them on 24/7? Thanks
  2. My ER with stock PS runs hot, is it normal? Will it be a concern if I need to leave it on all the time to drive my wifi router?
  3. I currently connect a cheap 1m ethernet cable from ER to my streamer, the SQ is good but can be better, do you have any recommendations for a better Ethernet cable?
  4. Let me know if you have one to sell. Thanks
  5. I connect my TPlink FCM to my EtherRegen using single mode SFPs and fiber cable and it works fine, but wonder if I should use multi-mode instead of single mode. Which method is preferable? Any ideas why one prefers one over the other?
  6. Yes, I should have said many days ahead of schedule. Thank you!
  7. My ER will be arriving Wednesday 4/8, thanks Uptone/Alex for being on time with shipment. I would like to confirm connection of ER to my HT setup. The internet CAT6A into the room is at the back of the room, but my audio systems is in the front. Current: Internet CAT6A from wall->Cisco 2960G--3 feet CAT7>ASUS wifi router, 3 feet CAT7 to A/V receiver, 3 feet CAT7 to ApplTV. |____35ft CAT 8->Lumin U1 Mini With the ER coming, should I 1. replace the Cisco with ER, plug cable
  8. Can I use my UpTone ultracaps 1.2 with modified LPS kit for U1 Mini?
  9. Updates and following up. Installed Uptone LPS 1.2 power supply for the Matrix. I am working on this step: revisit fiber optic option, connect the Cisco to a FCM switch next to Lumin. I ordered and installed the following: TP-LINK TL-SM311LS Gigabit SFP module, Single-mode into Cisco 2960G switch and the TP-Link Fiber MC220L converter https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003CFATYW/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003CFATL0/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. Thanks you all for your input. Based on your suggestions, I have taken the following steps and have improved SQ a good notch: - replace the switch in my HT room with the Cisco 2960 switch- less interference noise. - use CAT8 cable from the Cisco to Lumin streamer. I was surprised that this has made good impact (for the better) to SQ. - insert the Matrix SPDIF2/IFI power supply after the Lumin with I2S connection to my PS Audio DS DAC, this yields expanded sound stage and dead silent background. Just had this yesterday so it might need more burn in time to really assess
  11. When I built the hifi room years ago I ran the 50ft cable from upstrairs to the back of the hifi room, but my audio component rack is in front of the room.
  12. How do I connect from the IFI supply to the ER ground screw? Thanks
  13. Can the iFi iPower Low Noise DC Power Supply 9V/2A be used to power the EtheRegen? Thanks
