    First Owner, Purchased from an authorized dealer in Dec 2020. Unit is flawless and is in as good as new condition. This is the Special Edition with the following upgrades * eABS-200 EMI absorber sheet (eliminating EMI noise) and replacing internal wires with silver wires. * sCLK-EX clock * CAP Upgrade Please note that this is the 75 Ohm external clock version. The pictures/sticker show a 50 Ohm device. This is not a 50 Ohm (SOtM did not update the stickers when they did the mod), it is a 75 Ohm. I had this sent back to SOtM to change it from a 50 Ohm to a 75 Ohm. Reason, I had a Mutec Ref10 SE120 (the very best master clock out there) and it had only 2 50 Ohm outputs and several more 75 Ohm and hence I had to do this change paying an additional $230. Excluding cost for this change, the actual worth of the unit is $1700. It is an absolutely beautiful sounding unit. Buyer pays 3% Paypal fee and Fedex ground shipping with insurance for sale price. The unit is priced to sell. I prefer not to negotiate so I always list the price I am willing to sell factoring in loss. I take care of my buyers, so please see my feedback and buy with confidence. Enjoy the hobby and while you buy/sell make friends! Regards, Jai

    First owner, directly purchased from manufacturer in Jan2021 If you already own a high quality DAC like the Chord Hugo TT2/Dave, I recommend you try out these amazing LPS to bring the very best out of your DACs. I got these for my Chord products (Chord Hugo TT2 and Chord Mscaler) that I recently sold and hence this sale. Absolutely no compromise was made so I got the highly recommended upgrades to ensure that the system as whole has no known bottlenecks. Therefore I chose the SR Orange Fuse Upgrade, the Furutech Rhodium AC inlet and the very high quality Level 2 DC cable. All details are shown in the pictures including details from Farad's website. Actual cost: 806 Euros ($985) 667 Euros for the power supply with the SR orange upgrade and Furutech Rhodium AC inlet 139 Euros for the DC power cable Level 2 upgrade Please note. Two units are shown in the picture. Price is per unit. These power supplies will definitely work for a Chord TT2 and Chord Mscaler. I have tested them personally and used them for months with 0 issues. They are rock solid stable and sound incredibly beautiful! If you want to venture trying out with other DACs/Components, it is important to know the size of the DC input. All this information is clearly shown in the pictures. It is a 2.5mm. Please also note that this is a 15V unit. You cannot adjust the output power like the cheaper power supplies and that is by design to get the purest power. The current limit peak is between 2.5A and 3.2A for 15V. If you are going to try any other component (DAC, Ethernet conditioner, Pre-amp etc) please contact me so we can figure it out together. If you have any questions, please ask me before you place an offer. Buyer pays shipping and paypal fee. Please check my feedback and buy with confidence. Enjoy the hobby! Regards, Jai

  11. The Farads are great. Been rock solid so far. I have farads for all the Sotm components and also for the Chords.
  12. I have a Farad Super 3 for the sotm switch and tx-usb ultra. I am wondering about the benefit as well. I think from an SOTM NEO it benefits because the NEOs USB though audio grade may not be in par with tx-usb ultra. Just a speculation
  13. If there is a https://www.sotm-audio.com/sotmwp/english/portfolio-item/tx-usbexp/ tx-USBexp in your streamer, will there be any benefit in having another tX-USBultra in the chain where the USB output from the streamer is sent to the tX-USBultra and from there to the DAC? Assume sCLK-EX 10Mhz external clock in both the streamer and tx-USBultra. Thanks, Jai
  14. What is likely happening is that throttling down the CPU decreases pressure on memory with lower memory latencies and hence likely higher instruction throughput though CPU is running at lower frequency. Very much depends on the workload. Their maybe other factors. Yes, trust your ears. Very interesting observation.
  15. CPU frequency and memory frequency matching does not add up to me. There are so many factors that kick in when it comes to bottlenecks. The bandwidth of the memory lanes have direct impact on latencies. Just by matching CPU frequency to memory frequency will not mean much unless it is purely by accident. Just my thoughts based on prior experience.
