  1. About time. A much more usable UI with good looking facilities. Fingers crossed it all integrates well. A bit too late for me but at least existing owners of Innuos units can now make more proper use of their units.
  2. Yes... well.... as the OP I was hoping that Innuos teaser then count down announcement was for an OS coming out to make more functional /operational use of my Zenith MK3 but what do they do instead?... they make another box of tricks for multi thousands of pounds! My Zenith MK3 has become a rather expensive Streamer now as its become somewhat 'old in the tooth'. The so called new OS was rumoured to be released late last year. It needed it and Innuos knew this. Its taken too long I'm afraid. So...... I've sold it. Looking now at streaming via a new dedicated Laptop & attach a NAS for my CD
  3. Hi, The only new model to be released is a Zenith MK3 with an internal 8TB Hard Drive and associated Drivers for the large internal Drive. No news of any brand new models as of yet but I have been advised that there is a new Operating System for the Zenith is to be released shortly.
  4. +1 for the comments from mrkoven. It's a great one box option which, by the way, will benefit from a vastly updated Operating System shortly, to integrate better with the Music Apps on offer such as Qobuz and Tidal. Like yourself, who is running a Primaluna, I have a Zenith MK3 going in to a LampizatOr Amber 3 DAC through a Primaluna EVO 400 Integrated and out through Klipsch Forte III's. A fabulous match.
  5. Hi, Anyone tried an Ideon Master Time 3R re-clocker with their Innuos? Sightly off topic as its a different manufacturer but it really is worth a try if you can obtain a demo unit and compare with a Phoenix.
  6. Hi, Has anyone heard any vibes regarding the new Innuos Operating System? It was said that end of August was a possibility but I've not heard or seen anything for a while. Would be nice if an announcement came very soon as I'd like an alternative to Quobuz, Tidal and Roon. Cheers! 🍻
  7. I have most definitely checked all my settings on my current DAC in use just in case. All settings are as they should be with no filters adding or subtracting signals/sounds. All connected correctly and no mains leads too close or touching signal cables.
  8. Hi ASRMichael, Yes. I have been informed that both items have been 'broken in' as they are demo items. Both re-clockers have in excess of 100 hours. My own USB cables have good long use. The supplied David Laboga USB cables which came with the 3R have many, many hours as they are demo cables.
  9. I've now swapped the Phoenix I have on Demo over to the Ideon Master Time 3R also on demo loan. There was no discernable sound difference compared to the Phoenix. I have even swapped the current USB cables out again for two David Laboga Expression Emerald USB cables to make sure all signals are equal in and out. I didn't like the sound. But then I probably need to get used to the 'new sound' after changing the USB cables. For the cost of each of these re-clockers I'm not hearing any major improvements to make the investment. Yes... very, very slight improvement in a tighter Bass and
  10. Thanks austinpop, Some great info and recommendations there for me to follow. So.... Do you think there will firstly be a big difference if I replace the Topping D90 MQA DAC with the Chord TT2 DAC? Silly question maybe.... As it's an multi award winning DAC and costs 7.5 times the cost of a D90 MQA.... But sometimes it makes no difference at all if one adds something into a system that is not able to handle it or is configured in a strange way. I'm guessing.... hoping.... I'm going in the direction of big improvement as this is another big step for me. Admittedly, the D90 M
  11. Hi to all again, Could I ask if either of these set ups over the top? Innuos Zenith MK3 > Audioquest Coffee USB > Phoenix USB Reclocker > Lush 2 > Chord M Scaler > Lush 2 > Chord TT2 DAC Or Innuos Zenith MK3 > Audioquest Coffee USB > Phoenix USB Reclocker > Lush 2 > Chord M Scaler > Lush 2 > Topping D90 DAC What would you add, subtract or swap over? I have inserted a Phoenix USB reclocker in my current system, but I'm not hearing a vast improvement as of yet, after two days listening (It has ov
  12. So..... I've had a very short listen with the Phoenix .... Hmmnnn.... Not sure what I'm supposed to be hearing. The only differences I hear are slightly more solid Bass and a smidgen of improved Treble. Kick Drums are slightly more solid with Cymbals and Hi-Hat slightly more defined and crisp. I'm running it through the USB cable supplied with the Phoenix from my Zenith and a Lush 2 to my DAC. I've got a funny feeling my DAC might not be good enough and my speakers not as revealing as other peoples. I will continue to 'run in' the Phoenix and see if thin
  13. Okie dokie .... Look at what I've got to play with.... This will be interesting .... I have on board for home trial an Ideon Audio Master Time 3R and an Innuos Phoenix. If only I could locate a Demo Gaia ..... I will be connecting up this weekend and will post back my findings soon. One of these may end up being a 'keeper' for me so I'm very excited to trial after many positive comments. Thanks to all who have taken the time to place their views/comments on this thread so far of which I have found both informative and interesting. Time for some 'Toons'..

  15. Hi Hiker, What's your view please with the Ideon Audio 3R Master Time and the Innuos Pheonix? I would like to buy either one and would like more opinions between the two before decisions are made. Many thanks.
