  1. Hi Eric, nevermind, it is pearls before swine and I think there is nothing you can do against copy and paste. ATB Matt
  2. I think it is a most valuable question how the USBridge Signature is able to power an pure USB-DAC which does not have its own power supply. There are nice USB-DACs like Khadas Tone Board for example which should be a good match with the Allo. So any feedback is most welcome. @allo.com? Thanks Matt
  3. There are two USB-C to USB-C from Wireworld but the maximum length is 1 meter: https://www.wireworldcable.com/hi-res-digital-audio-cables.html#usb3.1 Matt
  4. Hi Eric, thank you for sharing. What is your set-up upstream to the d1-streamer? Do you use your MBP for streaming to the d1-steamer? If yes, which software player do you in your MBP, for example Audirvana? Thanks again Matt
  5. Hi, looking for audiophile USB-C to USB-C cables with a minimum length of 1,5m or 5 feet for connecting a new MacBook Pro to an USB-C DAC. Any recommendations? Thanks Matt
  6. @smith123 The 5V / 1Amp is perfect for the upcoming Allo Revolution DAC. AFAIK it will be launched in April and is a perfect match for USBridge Signature. The price is about the same as USBridge Sig. Matt
  7. You can even bypass the fuse in the Shanti (which is supposed to sound even better) and in the case the Shanti fails (it will most assuredly not happen) buy another one. Matt
  8. Jud, did you directly compare SQ of Audirvana for Mac vs. Audirvana for Windows? Thanks Matt
  9. The software is rather expensive....... Can you give it back if not to your liking? Matt
  10. Interesting, the first time I come across someone using the Extreme with an endpoint. Matt
  11. May I ask why do you go for the additional Bacch software when there is no difference to the Extreme direct output? Matt
  12. Hi Bob, there is an interesting post of @romaz on WBF: "The concept behind an endpoint was to mask the noise generated by a noisy upstream server or NAS and so the general belief has been that the endpoint should be a low noise device suggesting once again a low power CPU. When I first discovered the sound quality benefits of a server with a high power CPU, I continued to use my endpoints that housed a low power CPU including such things as a NUC, uRendu, and sMS-200ultra Neo. As I improved the quality of my high power server, I found that these endpoints were no longer necessary and in fact, became detrimental as they significantly hindered dynamics and shrunk the sound stage. It became clear to me that the endpoint needed to be equivalent to the server in order to avoid this and Pink Faun obviously agrees since they are marketing a dual 2.16X solution. With the Extreme having dual CPUs and with each CPU having its own independent bank of memory, you have the capacity for the same distribution of tasks but housed in a single chassis which is really quite elegant. In Emile's testing, he indicated this distribution between 2 CPUs sounded better than a single CPU having at least 20 cores." Did you come across a similar situation where a direct connection to a HQ server is superior to the additional use of an endpoint like the Allo? Thanks Matt
