  1. The description and the approach is wonderful. I just hope that some of the magic can be obtained with a much smaller budget, because a circuit based on DSD opens the door for some "simplification".
  2. Sorry mates, one more question. If what I am after is to introduce the benefits of optical isolation between my very standard switch and my linn ds (ethernet input streamer, spdif output to dac) how can I apply the sonore optical module to do that ? Will I need one extra device? Thanks
  3. This will be (finally) my first Sonore product. I would prefer to source from a European online retailer. Will it be sell in this conditions in europe? Another question. Will it make any difference to upgrade the power supply?
  4. This was a great review. Having had great experiences with Chord DAC's before, this makes me wanna spend money, so I must admit I have to calm down now!
  5. I am interested in that DIY approach. And a integrated server/streamer of HQPlayer, embedded, even if running the more economical DSD512 filters.
  6. Condolences. So glad you had a musical father and have those memories. I hope to be also a "musical father" to my young son..
  7. I follow his work with great curiosity and hope to have one of his designs one day.
  8. Thanks Mitchco, that's very useful information to me. Sure I can try to have a second listen one day, because the Kii score high in other departments to me (simplicity of the solution, fun factor, dinamics..).
  9. Thanks for the excelente analysis. I was so excited to experience the kii that recently went to the local dealer to have a listen. This must have been one of the most disappoint experiences I had. Maybe in part due to the previous hype surrounding the kii. I hear some of the well know qualities: spacious sound, dinamic, revealing, time coherent, yes. But I also heard a speaker with some issues on presenting tone. Tone was not rich, voices did not sound natural, but a bit harsh. On the end it was a bit disappointing hear that the speaker was lacking on the tone department. Tone is very important to get me involved in the music. The quest to find a replacement for my QUAD ESL 2805 continues...
  10. try Lyngdorf. Or, even better, Steinway Lyngdorf.
  11. Linn as been adamant to the use of open codecs since the beginning...
  12. Hi ebrandon. What Chromebook are you using? Could you elaborate a bit on how to use Chromebook ou Pixelbook to run HQPlayer. Was there any trick to do or are you just using the Chromebook as standard? By "NAA running in Ubuntu" you mean in a different machine or you found a way to install Ubuntu on the Chromebook? I was wondering if the more capable i7 based Pixelbook could be enough to run HQPlayer (and eventually a roon server). The attractive part is that they are silent machines... Sorry for so many questions, I am still new to this...
