  1. Black case with Diet pi OS, Shanti power supply. $175 plus shipping and PP fees.
  2. ISO REGEN with the Curious Cable 200mm USB link. Stock power supply $250 plus shipping and PP fees.
  3. I have an Allo USB bridge with the shanti power supply running diet pi as a roon endpoint and roon rock running on a home built server. I know nothing about Linux, I’m running the system headless and amazingly the whole thing works. Considering an upgrade to the Signature and have a couple of questions. Any subjective thoughts on the magnitude of sound improvement over my current setup? 10% improvement, 50% improvement? Just trying to gauge what to expect. As I said I chose diet pi OS with my usb bridge although I can’t remember why. Any thoughts on the “best” OS f
  4. The fact that you felt compelled to bypass the Altair's volume control makes me question its value. For $1,300 more you can get a Vega G1 with a legitimate analog volume control, a supposedly superior DAC and an analog input. It’s almost as if you hadn’t heard or reviewed the Vega.
  5. I’ve had terrible luck getting Qobuz to work well in my ‘17 VW with CarPlay. I can access and play Qobuz through the app on my phone, but the interface on the screen in the car is mostly useless. Had similar issues with Tidal so I’m thinking it’s the fault of the VW. There seems to be no way to update the cars firmware.
  6. I found the curious cable "link" - the short one designed for Regen type decices - improved the sound quality of my system.
  7. Akassa and others make fanless NUC cases. http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Fanless Chassis&type_sub=Fanless NUC&model=A-NUC35-A1B#
  8. Perfect timing https://audiobacon.net/2017/05/11/preorders-now-available-for-sotm-sms-200ultra-and-sps-500/
  9. More GE Smith, with some killer vocals from Chrissie Hynde.
  10. Warren Zevon on Letterman Great version of a great song. Interview part is just ok.
  11. Have you heard ROON ROCK? May influence your desxisions going forward. https://community.roonlabs.com/t/rock-hardware-primer/21756
  12. Did some digging and found this article re: new motherboard and Win 10. http://www.windowscentral.com/how-re-activate-windows-10-after-hardware-change
  13. I built a fanless pc with an embedded j1900 intel processor and its running pretty slow with Roon server. I figure MQA decoding will over tax it. Asrock is out with a new line of embedded MB's and I'm going to get one. My question is: can I simply swap out the board and re connect the SSD or do I need to wipe it and do a fresh install of windows 10, fidelizer Roon and tidal? S Thanks.
