  1. I think to play Tidal MQA (if dac is compatible) you need to run something like mconnectHD on the iOS device. Im not sure if the Tidal app can do it. I agree that you need the Apple CCK.
  2. This thread may be out of date, but the MYTEK Brooklyn Bridge is a dac and streams via Ethernet (an all in one). I like it and run it in my office system. Not the last word in a dac, but a very solid performer at about $2,700. If you can stretch, it benefits from a linear psu. I don’t know the price of the Lumin T1. I think it’s a lot more. Once heard it at a show, and it sounded really good.
  3. I use a JS-2 with my sonic transporter i5 and the other output powers a Mytek Brooklyn Bridge. Works great.
  4. Bummer, but thanks for letting me know. I have the small Kaweros and like them.
  5. Did anyone hear the Kaiser Grande speakers with Kondo?
  6. Ditto from me on all the comments regarding John Quick. He’s helped me innumerable times over the years. Regarding the Rossini DAC (while I will catch a lot of crap for what I’m about to say at its price), I think the Rossini is one of the best values in high end audio and for sure in dacs. I’m a very fortunate Vivaldi owner (partial stack - no transport), the Rossini v2 is darn close. If you can do the Rossini, you will not be disappointed. Ive heard it many times, and it is a world class dac.
  7. Be sure to check out the Blue Hawaii amp and Jack Woo's latest offering. Both are awesome.
  8. Interesting thread. I finally saw the Innuous Statement at (believe it or not) CanJam NYC, and I spent more time investigating it than any other item at CanJam. I was probably in the minority, but I was thrilled to be able finally to see and understand a little about the Statement. This server was at the top of my list for AXPONA. I am strongly considering it over my max speced SonicTransporter i7, but I should soon be obtaining a Paul Hynes PSU for the ST i7 server, so one step at a time. My preference is Ethernet out, so this server might be ideal for me.
  9. I love these subjective vs. objective based threads like this one. I am 100% sure I hear differences in cables, switches, etc. - I think.
  10. To me, this is 100% correct. For example, I know I hear a (positive) difference between the SoTM lan cables and others I tried. My perception was confirmed by others in a blind test. I am sure many here think that’s impossible, but it’s true in my system. I’m not sure I will go for the switch (I am running bridged Ethernet from a Small Green Computer i7 to my streamer), but I would not be surprised at all if different switches sound different and that the difference results from things not yet completely understood.
  11. Huh?? I am about to buy a Mytek Brooklyn Bridge for my office system. Are you saying the Mytek dac somehow taints non-MQA files (true hi res or dsd) with MQA filters? Please clarify this.
  12. While it could be my imagination, SoTM Ethernet cable sounded better to me than Cardas and Audioquest diamond and vodka.
  13. Thanks, I will listen to some of this material. Even the Grease Soundtrack :) Using dCS Vivaldi system.
  14. Inferesting. Would you please identify some material you compared. I would like to try some of the tracks too. Thx.
