    Thanks - was going to wait for the next gen macmini m1, but ext2, 7ec, dsf256 on my rme is definitely sufficient. Only caveat is convolution, though just 2 channel.
  2. /& btw, I just checked the ER manual & realised I’d used an incorrect connection sequence - hadn’t powered down the ER before switching to EXT clock & then powering up clock followed by ER. So wasted a day or so burn in time, though not really been listening. Clock I suppose will have had stabilising time, after shipping travails.
  3. Don’t think I understand this ...? My just arrived BG7TBL has 3 outputs - all 75ohm & I assumed square wave.
  4. We all know there are some who get progressively inquisitorial about these new prospects on the horizon - I’ve developed a warm n cosy all-is-right-with-the-world expectation. A good thing, in this bizarre world!
  5. Any specific measurements available yet? ... duh! just re-read previous page, ... already covered - thanks Alex.
  6. Well, here in Oz that “slow boat from China” turned out to be a slow local customs-distribution nexus ie the shipping details that came thru the day of delivery showed said clock sitting in Melbourne from end of Nov thru the whole of Dec - slow boat was ~2 weeks, local Oz was ~5 weeks. We do have a tit-for-tat ‘cold war’ going on ...
  7. Yes, back to mundane on-topic matters ... I’m still waiting on my clock, ordered mid-Nov ...

    @MiskaRe above, with using the RME dac, is the cpu demand so much greater for the 48x option?
  9. Latest on Sonore site ... which always indicates “OSX v1”.
  10. Maybe wandering off topic, ... but - noted some time back I was getting a faint ticketty-tick-tick on only dsf files, but not pcm even though my HQP settings are at upsampling to dsf128 for everything - into RME dac. Only bothered when in soft passages, particularly classical piano etc. Range of dsf files sources - sacd from Oppo using mac OSX Sonore + DLs from elsewhere using Sonore to rip isos, plus DLed dsf files etc ... Got round to investigating & the fix was to change HQP, tickbox from 48x128 to 44.1x128!! But pcm upsampling to dsf & below .wv

    Hi Jussi, noted some time back I was getting a faint ticketty-tick-tick on only dsf files, but not pcm even though HQP settings are at upsampling to dsf128 for everything - into RME dac. Only bothered when in soft passages, particularly classical piano etc. Got round to investigating & the fix was to change tickbox from 48x128 to 44.1x128!! Bizarrely, dsf files dl-ed in .wv compression & then converted to dsf were fine, playing without issue, as per all pcm. ie iso to dsd extractions was always problematic. Explanation? Updating to a stronger cpu etc will hel
  12. Hi John, Alex’s comment referred to above was Aug 31 - this is what I then implemented. If your usage of the EtherREGEN has only one (network feed) connection on the 'A' side, then there is a trick you can use which will allow use of the JS-2 for both the EtherREGEN and endpoint while preserving the full isolation. "Turn around" the EtherREGEN, running your network feed into the 'B' port, and your endpoint from one of the 'A' ports. This works great for two reasons: 1) We went to extra trouble and expense to make the EtherREGEN symmetrical about its moat (i.e. different
  13. Yes, I’m an isoRegen stayer! Re the use of the js-2 on both macmini & etherRegen - back somewhere is advice from Superdad that isolation is maintained in my case by flipping the etherRegen around, ie modem ethernet into B-side & then A-side thru to dac etc. I powered both the ER & dac with the 2 js-2 dc outputs (& I used 2x lps1.2s to power uRendu & isoRegen) - I assume this logic applies to your situation ...
