  1. I use a 3 meters DIY ethernet cable with Telegartners. Never had any connection problems.
  2. Minidsp SHD Studio/Ares ll dac combo works very well with my newly built Purifi Eval1 power amp.
  3. Hi Barrows, that's interesting. I don't know how to build my own power supply. So I'm using the +/-18V the SMPS1200 provides. I do have an unused dual rail LT3042 regulator lying around: https://www.mpaudio.net/product-page/sd-hpuln-ps. Your post made me thinking I could put this in between smps and Eval1 input. Only its slightly under spec. Smps Vaux is 2x22V, Eval1 input is +/- 18V where the sd-hpuln-ps does max 20Vdc in and 15Vdc out (at 2x 1,5A). So I'm afraid it was an interesting thought, but not feasible.
  4. I have SHD Studio. To stream from NAS and Tidal I use Bubbleupnp instead of mConnect. It has better looks. Both are much more user friendly than the Volumio app.
  5. I'm using the OM on the streamer side and TP-Link on the network side as a budget friendly solution. No problems between OM and streamer.
  6. I use a 5V switch mode power supply with a MPAudio SD-HPULN PS in between. Input of the SD-HPULN PS is 5V, output is 4,4V. The opticalModule works fine at 4,4V. I'll tidy op the connectors and housing once I'm settled on the use of the SD-HPULN PS. The large heatsink is not necessary. The opticalModule does get warm without but not hot. This heatsink keeps it luke warm.
  7. Hi, what color belongs to what measurement (resp. Synthesis, RR1, B & K, Bob Katz)? Thx!
  8. I'm going to buy the Sonore opticalModule to use down stream just in front of my network player. Upstream I have TP-Link MC220L or Trendnet TEG S51SFP. What would you recommend? Or should I sell both and buy some Cisco SFP switch?
  9. If you have a dedicated streamer like a Sotm sms-200 it would be useful to connect this with fiber and a TP-Link MC220L converter to your dac.
  10. The above curve I like best. Below the straight curve I used to compare.
  11. Using Dirac on Minidsp SHD Studio I decided I like the response of my speakers except for the boomy bass region. So I made the target curve follow the original curve. Smoothed it a bit and only really reducing the peak of the bass. The resulting target curve still has a downward slope but isn't straight. I like this better than the EBU and Harman curves I tried.
  12. Made my own adapter where I cut the +5V wire. It works fine. No sound quality difference compared to before I cut the pin.
