  1. How much SQ improvement are people getting by replacing the stock umbilical cord?
  2. Evil Ted In what way is the AS cable better than stock? With the 12% discount, it may be cheaper than the DIY. Jay
  3. Has anyone tried either the Westminster or AudioSensibility DC cable on Lumin X1? I am considering an upgrade to the stock DC cable if there is a noticeable (not subtle) improvement.
  4. Hi Peter Is there any problem with placing Mutec 10 clock upstream of Lumin X1?
  5. Some streamer/DAC such as Lumin X1 already have a femto clock. Wouldn't Mutec between ER and Lumin cause any problems?
  6. Can we do a poll as to whether 2 ER is a SIGNIFICANT improvement over 1 ER? The second ER+LPS is going to be >$1000 and I don't want to spend this kind of money if it is just going to be a subtle improvement. Often subtle improvements are really the Placebo effect.
  7. I have Paul Hynes SRT4 LPS powering ER. I am using Lumin app and ER is connected directly to the wall ethernet. I don't have HF issues per se, just some sibilance only on certain female vocals like Diana Krall. I like the way my system sounds overall. With or without the ER, there is sibilance on some of Krall tracks.
  8. I have ER>Lumin X1>Don sachs 2 tube preamp>Pass Lab X350.5>Soundlab electrostatic speakers. ER is constantly on-for the past 1 year. Peter Wie at Lumin recommended against a clock between ER and Lumin, but I don't know why.
  9. Blake do you have a Sablon ethernet cable for sale? Jay
  10. I am interested in this set up. I hear sibilance with a lot of female vocals on streaming (but not on vinyl), so I am thinking that the sibilance that I am hearing is part of the digital harshness. I am using just one ER and hoping that a second ER will mitigate sibilance. What do you think?
  11. I don’t have a computer for my music room, so a Nucleus may be needed. I am using Lumin X1 as streamer. Would the Roon equalizer diminish the SQ at all?
  12. Attenuators will dampen at all frequencies. I just don’t like the sibilance, which occurs near 5 kHz. Other frequencies are fine for my ears.
  13. To decrease the sibilance around 5 kHZ, how about using the equalizer function in Roon Nucleus. Would adding Nucleus in the pathway decrease SQ?
