  1. What a shame. Hard not to be angry with Paul, then - I feel a great affinity for Stephen, as I intimated earlier in the thread. Paul certainly has made his own bed and must lie in it if that's the case. Best wishes to Stephen and the others at PHD Ltd. effected by this terrible turn of events. To seemingly weather the global events of the last year only to have things come crashing down suddenly due to mismanagement and unscrupulousness just as it seemed things may be returning to 'normal' in some parts of the world would just add insult to injury.
  2. Would be good to see how RedundantSoul is privy to such information. I may attempt to get in contact with Stephen to see if he is willing to confirm or deny any of its content. Hard to have 100% confidence in one anonymous post by a new user formatted in such a way. I, for one, do not understand the insinuation that there isn’t anyone in the thread with any concern for the staff of PHD Ltd. and the thread is only shilling for Paul Hynes or some such nonsense - there have been multiple mentions of Stephen in the thread already.
  3. Very saddened to hear of the closure. As others have mentioned, Stephen provided exceptional service and communication. I recently had an issue with my SOtM tX-USBultra SE suddenly ceasing to work after I plugged back in my SR4T (turned out to be an issue with the SOtM's mods causing a malfunction), and Stephen responded very quickly to my questions and gave me plenty of assurance. I feel privileged to own my SR4T unit given the circumstances now -- it became apparent pretty quickly after receiving it that it was of another tier entirely vs. what I had tried previously, and given P
  4. Thanks for the anecdote @Confused, still helpful despite being of an experience with the SOtM “mothership” overseas and not via Crux. I have successfully made contact with Kamal at Crux and should be shipping my unit to him tomorrow. I will let the thread know how things pan out. Thanks again for the responses!
  5. Thanks so much, @austinpop! Exactly the kind of information I was hoping to find, and very useful, as your posts tend to be!
  6. Has anyone experienced a failure of/damge to their tX-USBultra before? I bought a 9V Special Edition that was modified by Crux Audio here in the US (aka "SOtM USA") from a user here on AS about a year ago, and have enjoyed it very much powered with a Paul Hynes SR4T. This past week I bought a new DAC on the used market (Schiit Yggdrasil A2 with Unison USB), and it worked fine for a few days. I had to do some switching around yesterday and unplugged the SR4T briefly - when I plugged the SR4T back in and turned it on, the tX-USBultra responded by lighting its power LED only momentari

    For sale is my ISO Regen. Includes: - original box, - two (2) USPCB USB A > B adapters (one "standard" version, and one 90-degree angle USB B plug version for vertical placement of the ISO Regen/other USB devices) - upgraded power supply to the Uptone Audio-branded SMPS instead of the original, older Meanwell SMPS that came with the unit. The Uptone Audio-branded SMPS is one I have left over from a now dead Ultracap LPS-1, and should be at least a nominal improvement over the Meanwell stock supply. Still, I used the ISO Regen with multiple LPS's, including a LPS-1, a Teradak 30W, a Linear Solution LPS-912, and a Paul Hynes SR4 Turbo, which the ISO Regen scaled to very well and improved which each higher quality LPS it was tried with. I am only selling because I upgraded to a far, far more expensive SOtM tx-USBUltra Special Edition, and the ISO Regen is just sitting around. Given that the SOtM is literally over five times as expensive, the delta between the two of them is definitely not as big as you would expect, especially when you power the ISO Regen with a very good LPS. Priced low for a quick sale, but will entertain all offers. Price includes shipping in CONUS. I am the third owner.

  9. As far as I'm aware (and I just checked my SR4T), no, the SR4/SR4T does not have selectable input voltage.
  10. Thanks for clarifying. Just did this between my SR4T and an Aptitlig (coupling wooden spike feed now sit below the SR4T, which is resting on the Aptitlig, and I moved the Herbie's Tenderfeet that were under the SR4T below the Aptitlig platform itself). Perhaps a bit early, but it indeed is an improvement -- things are much tighter/more coherent and less diffuse/bloated sounding. The SR4T is feeding a SOtM tx-USBultra Special Edition with 9V.
  11. I'm fairly certain @austinpop means he used/is using wood blocks/Panzerholz footers between the SR7/components and the wood platform(s), and not under the platform itself. The usual thinking is that wood platforms such as the IKEA Aptitlig or the Taiko Daiza need to have the components they're supporting coupled to them (rather than de-coupled/isolated) to properly drain resonances/energy and do their job, while below the platform(s) decoupling/isolation footers usually are preferred. Unsure what, if anything, austinpop is using to support the Daiza, though, or if it is placed on a rack/simila
  12. Was browsing through my Buffalo BS-GS2048's settings because of the post upthread, just to make sure I had things right, and I had already set everything as suggested (or its equivalent) from prior posts by austinpop etc., but I was curious -- do fellow modified Buffalo owners keep Jumbo Frame enabled, or disable it? This was not, to my knowledge, one of the parameters discussed in past discussions about optimal Buffalo settings, so I assume enabled is the answer.
  13. Can anyone point me to the exact model for the Finisar SFP that's recommended? I'm having difficulty parsing old posts (it looks like there were two Finisar SFP's that people toggled between preferring?) from a forum search, and should be receiving a second LPS soon to set up a dual Buffalo BS-GS2048 configuration, so I'll need the SFP's to connect the switches. Thank you!
