  1. Bump, price reduced to $200. Retail was $900. I would think a DIY'er could replace the Neutrik connector if a user wanted a standard plug.

  3. I would think a TPlus + Phoenix will be an exceptionally good combo, but unfortunately I have no experience with the Phoenix. I would be very interested in your findings if you do go with a TPlus and combine it with your Phoenix. Gaia isn't required for TPlus to sound very good. However, it does allow you to take advantage of the I2S input on the TPlus, which has a bit different sonic presentation/flavor as compared to the TPlus USB- both are good and it could be down to personal taste which input you would prefer. Adding a Denafrips D/D converter also allows the user to take adv
  4. Congrats! I see you have the clock out synced up as well. Once things have settled in, let us know your thoughts.
  5. @bernardl You may want to check out the Denafrips Terminator Plus review on 6Moons as he does experiment with Gaia, and a different D/D converter (but not MC-3+) and he also mentions the Mutec REF10.

  10. Perhaps a dedicated "Tweaks" subsection makes sense as well (cables, decrapifiers, grounding, power supplies, acoustic treatments, ethernet switches, vibration solutions, power conditioners/regenerators, experimental stuff, etc).
  11. @sig8 My first thought is, it could be a pin-out issue. I think I2S for the Holo Spring is HDMI, and not RJ45, but I could be wrong. Does the Spring have user configurable pin-outs? Pin-out info for the Gaia is in the owner's manual: https://3beb070f-8ca8-434d-b6b3-76002990adfa.filesusr.com/ugd/4b933e_5bbf9137820542c6bc30d47b697ef750.pdf Did you trying using any other connection type between the Gaia and your Spring DAC? That might help to isolate the potential issue.
  12. @andrewinukm I don't have any experience with Pass Labs, but I have quite a bit of experience with various tube-based components and have rolled lots and lots of NOS tubes of different tube types and manufacturers over the years. I would say the sonic impact of the Firewall for Loudspeakers was actually similar to adding a tube-like quality based on my listening. This is a sonic impact that many might enjoy. On an unrelated note, I just want to add that IMO no component or cable is 100% transparent (and we would have no way of knowing if it was 100% transp
