  1. Yes, I think it is the same as on the ER. A 10mhz input. The word clock is the output. I have the Vivaldi clock.
  2. Anyone know if there is a place to pick one up at a premium more quickly?
  3. Anyone with any experience with these, and, if so, which models. I am considering getting one to use with an EthernetRegen (when I get it) and my dCS clock. Thx.
  4. What a superb piece of writing. A thoroughly enjoyable and informative review.
  5. Would love to learn impressions of the Sonore offering via its preferred USB output vs. the Innuos Statement via its Ethernet output on the Rossini. I’m looking for best possible SQ with all else secondary, though Roon is a plus.
  6. Upon reading this, I’ve completely changed my view. Yesterday, I lamented that Amazon’s offering might tank Qobuz and Tidal. Now I’m happily hoping it pushes Spotify to hires.
  7. I understand your legitimate concern in this regard, but I personally worry less about price and more about quality. I think Tidal and Qobuz actually care about us audiophiles, but Amazon won’t care or is just too big to focus on our small niche. For example, Amazon is probably never going to come to places like this website to learn about all of the issues “we” identify, discuss, debate (vigorously 😀), resolve, etc. To me, that’s the concern. I can’t begin to know how to get Amazon’s hires streaming service through my digital rig at home (except maybe by connecting a Bluesound Node), and, from what I’ve read here, I probably shouldn’t even bother because there’s no way it sounds nearly as good as Tidal or Qobuz using Roon or dCS Mosaic. If Amazon’s hires service indeed kills alternatives, SQ ultimately could suffer, which would be ironic and unfortunate. Thus, I will continue to support both Tidal and Qobuz for the foreseeable future.
  8. Agree 100%. I’m very worried about Roon especially. I just don’t seem Amazon giving a cr*p about Roon at all, or any external player for that matter. Why would they?
  9. I was not aware that Stereophile would not publish a negative review without taking the steps you mention. How do you know this to be true?
  10. I respect your opinion. I guess I”m a bit simple minded. The reviewer didn’t like the SQ. Some of the facts stated about issues I don’t think are relevant to SQ might not have been written with the absolute precision of a math equation. I just don’t perceive any malice here. Just my 2¢, and everyone sees things differently, which is interesting. This is the BEST website of all time and a fascinating thread! We have a lot of smart and interesting folks here, and I get to come here each day and learn what you all think about various music and pieces of audio equipment. How great is that.
  11. This is a fascinating thread. While at least one other member disagrees, I don’t think the alleged factual misstatements are material in any regard. To me, the review still seems competent, thoughtful, and totally legitimate. Finally, I look forward to more reviews from the reviewer!
  12. I’m really considering The Statement. Was it there and, if so, what did you think? I’ve found a local Innuos dealer but have not yet had an opportunity to listen to it.
  13. Again, not a criticism, but did the owner agree with you?
  14. I appreciate the review and the opinions expressed. Any chance that this model requires a lot of break in? Any chance of a cable issue? I’ve observed a dramatic change in phones’ sound from break in and also have had cable issues. Finally, did the Hugo 2 owner advise if his pair sounded the same as the review sample? I’ve never heard these phones, but I do own LCD-3’s, among a few other good phones, so I can’t vouch for the reviewed model from my own experience. Just wondering about the issues I noted. I’m not at all criticizing the review and think the reviewer seems very competent. Also, ironically, I agree with another comment that I’m now more intrigued to listen to these phones at the next CanJam or at another show.
