  1. Good to know. I might then consider an SR7 with 4 rails, even though i read that the latter is inferior to single rail version, hopping that the difference won't be too much. Lately i've been broswing the massively improve SQ thread quite a lot, and i didn't find much talking about pSUs. This let me wonder how do you guys with top systems power them up. Isn't using ATX LPSU the best option ?
  2. Thanks for your suggestion, Nenon. I'm just wondering whether adding a DC to ATX converter to the SR7 wouldn't cancel the benefits of such a premium PSU, and that i'd be better off S.Q. wise with my initial choice, i.e. an HDD Plex 500W (to come) full linear atx PSU ?
  3. Hi guys, i reopen this thread, as i still haven't decided yet. Meanwhile, i've heard of Paul Hynes produtcts, which look excellent. As i'm quiet a nooby is this fied, escpecially technically, i was wondering weather his SR7 model could be used as a lineat atx psu, or is it a totally different construction ?. Thanks
  4. Thanks for your inputs, guys. I didn't see anybody mentioning JPlayer. I could get any infos, as my post on their forum got ignored and unpublished by the moderators. Does it have any tagging function, and how does it perform sq-wise?
  5. Hi everyone, I'm currently working on considerably improving my computer based hifi installation. So far i've been using foobar 2000 and relying on cue files for tagging my music. Unfortunately the limitations of the remote controlling solution and the ones of the cue sheet formats for music tagging, made me consider a new player. As i rebuilt my pc from scratch and optimized every part for a high end experience, i imagine that they must be better options sq-wise, than foobar. During my researches i came across players like Roon, JPLAY, Audirvana and so on, but could find out
  6. I talk to Sean, and his products seem very nice, but the asked price is "a little bit" steep, indeed. He quoted me 3k £ for the equivalent of the HDplex 400w atx... So i guess i'll go with the latter.
  7. @motberg Good to know that those two products seem not to have quality issues and have a similar SQ. Your comment about the cable length is interesting, bcz i was tending to think (according to the pictures) that the Hdplex had much longer cables than the teradak. @Nenon Do you know weather Sean Jacobs can build atx LPSU as well ? I didn't find the answer on his webpage. Just by curiosity, i came through an article talking about the JCAT 400w Linear Power Supply which looks exactly the same than the HDplex. Is it the same product ? Before i t
  8. hi guys, i'm upgrading my installation and getting rid of the pico psu, to go full linear. For an optimal result, i'm looking to eliminate the dc-atx converter. I have found many models which seemed very good, like the Paul Hynes SR4 or the expensive UpTone Audio JS-2, to name just a few, but unfortuntely they don't power the mobo directy. The only two candidates i have found that might suit me are The HDPLEX 400w atx and the Teradak atx (275w or 380w) line, for which i have found very little feedback. I read quite a few threads about the Hdplex 200w and heard about the reliabil
  9. Hello everyone out there ;-), I am currently in the process of building an hifi computer, and am currently hesitating between two solutions: 1) Buying a top soundcard, like lynx 2 2) using the spdif out of any low budget soundcard and hook it up to a Dac. Therefore, my questions: 1) which solution (highend souncard or highend Dac) do you think would bring me the best sound ? 2) Currently, i am having an interesting opportunity on a Wadia 12 Dac, and i must say that i am quite tempted. But i am hesitating, because, if i choose to go for the dac solution, i was thinking of buyi
