  1. View Classified Jcat NET Card XE Jcat NET XE card for sale. Excellent condition, low hours, original owner. Purchased from an authorized dealer in the US (Kitsune Hifi) along with the USB Card XE (already sold). I used both with the Jcat Optimo 3 Duo and Optimo S ATX with great results. A lot has been written about these cards, but you can check the link for more information : https://jcat.eu/product/net-card-xe-high-end-hifi-network-card/ You can check my feedback on USAM or eBay if you’d like. Username: Jazzebration Buyer to pay shipping and PP fees if not using friends and family. I get good rates with my UPS business account, so it should be fairly inexpensive being such a light package. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks! Due to spending most of my time these days listening to analog, I am slowly disassembling my short lived, yet beloved, music server. Individual (mostly) items will start popping up in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out if interested. The following items will all be listed at some point: - Revelation Audio SSD / M.2 FEMTO (320GB pSLC) - Jcat Optimo 3 Linear Power Supply (dual 5V / 3 amp out for Jcat pcie cards) - Jcat USB Card XE *SOLD - Jcat Net Card XE - Jcat Optimo S ATX Linear Power Supply I’m probably going to regret this, as I’ve never heard digital audio sound anywhere near this good, but I’m hoping they all find some good homes.

  3. View Classified Jcat Optimo 3 Duo Linear Power Supply, Dual 5V / 3A Rails Jcat Optimo 3 Duo for sale. LIST PRICE: $1,848. Original owner with low hours. Two independent, galvanically isolated 5V / 3A rails with matching high quality DC cables, perfect for Jcat USB and NET XE cards (up for sale soon) or an externally powered M.2 NVMe (for sale now).

  5. View Classified Jcat Optimo S ATX Linear Power Supply Jcat Optimo S ATX in excellent condition for sale, 5500.00 € / $5,967.00 USD LIST PRICE. Original owner with low hours. This was responsible for by far this biggest jump in sound quality for a PC based music server. No need to build your own unregulated linear power supply to send power into a dc - ATX converter, this psu handles everything. Absolutely no issues running HQPlayer at DSD512 with EC v2 modulators using an Intel 12900k in a passively cooled chassis. The only time the safety shut down was triggered was during benchmarks / stress tests. If you have a similar high powered CPU you will need to make some adjustments on your motherboard’s BIOS to limit the frequency of the P and E cores so they don’t boost too high. I set mine at 4.4 and 3.5GHz, respectively. There a lot of threads on Audiophile Style discussing proper bios settings for HQPlayer. If you are not upsampling, it can power any server on the market, or any pc/music based diy project you can conceive of. Standard ATX outputs, including 8-pin CPU, HDD (SSD), and 24-pin mobo. Very high quality cables for the CPU, HDD, and MOBO are included, and a PCIE cable can be purchased separately. An ATX mounting blank and cable gland are also included for standard cases. I bought an extra 5V DC cable that I can include for an additional $125. It can be used to power one of the Jcat USB or NET cards or the revelation audio M.2 NVMe SSD (also for sale). Everything will be shipped in the original, double boxed packaging. The PSU is huge, and heavy, so please make sure you have the proper space to set it up so it can breath a little. It only gets slightly warm, but it benefits from some air circulation. Please see the link for more info: https://jcat.eu/product/optimo-s-atx/ Price is $4,800.

View Classified FOR SALE: HDPLEX 500W ATX Linear Power Supply w/ SR Orange Fuze + Isoacoustics Giai III Upgrades FOR SALE: HDPlex 500w ATX Linear Power Supply. https://hdplex.com/hdplex-fanless-500w-atx-linear-power-supply-with-modular-atx-output.html . These are very hard to find and have been sold out for months. I originally purchased this unit in March 2021 (arrived in late April) to power a music server build, but due to supply chain issues I haven’t been able to put everything together. As a result it is in completely unused mint condition. It has been sitting in the box nearly the entire time. Besides the power supply, I’ve upgraded the fuse to Synergistic Research Orange, and added isolation with Isoacoustics Gaia III feet (which required thread adapters which I ordered separately). All factory parts and cables are also included, as well as the ATX bridge modular input board. If you’d like, I can also include an adapter cable which will allow the pcie from the psu to power the secondary 4 or 8-pin CPU EPS on the motherboard. I’ve decided to go in another direction for a server and will not be needing the psu anymore. I was excited to use it, especially with the upgrades, so it’s a bit disappointing to see it go. Hopefully I can pass it along to someone who’s been looking for one of these, as again, they’re very hard to find. I’d like to sell everything as a package, but will consider leaving out the Gaia feet and lowering the price. But, in my opinion, linear power supplies definitely benefit from isolation, and these are some of the best on the market.

  15. Hi everyone, I am planning to get new SSD's for my fan-less music service. Did anyone done a kind of shoot out what SSD Model has the best SQ for a high end music system? Kind regards Ilona
  16. This item is SOLD. I am selling my ZENith SE Mk.II Std, which was built and sold as a limited production run of only 100 units. Mine is #57 of 100, and I am the original owner.This coveted model sold out very quickly, and rarely appears on the used market. This is your opportunity to own one of the finest music servers available today at any price. According to John Darko: “I find myself haunted by my memory of its sound. It was like no other digital source I had heard to date: richer and smoother.”https://darko.audio/2017/10/richer-sounds-with-the-innuos-zenith-mkii-se/https://darko.audio/2017/12/dars-favourite-bits-of-2017/This music server is among the most user-friendly music servers available today and is housed in an attractive, minimally-resonant, single chassis with very effective integrated anti-vibration footers. This is a well-thought out design implementing low latency “direct from RAM playback” and a very low impedance custom power supply designed by Dr. Sean Jacobs. It incorporates cascaded linear regulators and the finest Mundorf capacitors resulting in harsh-free musicality, incredible dynamics with wonderful immediacy and rich saturated tone. It is virtually “plug and play” and is remote controllable by any iPad or Android tablet, PC/Mac, or iPhone/Android phone. It is a Roon Ready device that is also capable of Qobuz and Spotify playback. It comes with 2TB of SSD storage although it can also stream files from any NAS providing virtually unlimited capacity.The unit came with a 2-year warranty, and the remainder of this warranty (until December 2019) will transfer over to you. In my experience, Innuos have provided, and will continue to provide outstanding support. Moreover, they have a track record of delivering software updates that improve both the usability and the sound quality of the product.I have rated my unit 9/10 simply because it is not brand new. In all other aspects, it would rate as a perfect 10/10. It is blemish free. It was unboxed, placed in my rack, and his lived there ever since, in a smoke-free home. I will ship it in the original box.Free shipping within the continental US and PayPal fees are included. Please PM any inquiries. MSRP: $7000 Asking: $4700 SOLD
  17. Hello everybody, long story the shortest (...), I have a very vintage stereo system to whom I am finally going to add a DAC within xmas, got it as my present, the idea was to use an old MacMini as a music/movie server but found out that iTunes is very poor sound quality wise and the Mini is too old to run a recent software able to play lossless music (even tho there must sure be but I didn't look too much for one) and the Mini is a little bit noisy, no big deal but if I could take less space and less punch in the eye and being able to use a higher quality sound output software to then stream the music to the DAC I'd be happier. I know the Pi is a little powerhouse and saw many projects but the vast majority includes a DAC which I won't need so, to summarise, I only need a device capable to play music both locally (through a micro SD I suppose) and/or through a NAS and a software which can take advantage of high quality lossless music; I played with Audirvana for a little and I like it enough even tho some quirks, I haven't found a version to run on an old Mac OS but I'd like something similar whose interface can be run off a smartphone. Hardware wise, what does it take to arrange such a thing? Besides the Pi, which so far I seem to understand being on a Rev 3+, I guess a sound card with either optical/usb/output, is that correct? Any discussion to point me at so I can start and learn about it all? Grazie Giovanni
  18. Hi all! I'm new to the forum, but have been reading around and been really enjoying the community, support, and ideas shared. I recently picked up some KEF Q150 bookshelf speakers, receiver, and a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB (DC) turntable (w/ Schiit Mani preamp)—just getting started in the world of hi-fi audio, and have much to learn (but having a lot of fun). However, despite the incredible sound coming from my vinyl collection with my new setup, I've been scheming a way to integrate digital music into my setup. After about a solid month of research and learning, I have a parts list for my planned digital audio PC / music server build. I wanted to share and hear all thoughts / suggestions / concerns before I pull the trigger—it's not the cheapest build (approx. $2650). The main goal is to run either Ubuntu or Windows 10 for a Roon server / Tidal playback on the DAC I'm about to buy—Pro-Ject Pre Box S2 Digital. The other goal of the build was to allow for 4K HDR playback (so 3840x2160 @ 60Hz) as an HTPC. Also, trying to limit the TDP as much as possible and go completely fanless/silent/no moving parts. The PC will live "headless" in my living room next to the stereo equipment. Here it is! CATEGORY COMPONENT MODEL NO.

It destroyed them, embarrassed them, and gave them a good schooling to boot. Music sounded frighteningly obviously comparatively more refined, more spacious, and more natural. End of story. I cannot imagine anyone in this universe who listens to music as an activity unto itself making the same comparison and not hearing the difference." - Michael Lavorgna( Audiostream.com) To purchase, arrange for a home trial or for more info click here
  20. So, I've written this music server which has a free version and two paid upgrade feature sets. Is this a good place to mention it? It's a networking server - a bit like GrooveBasin. I did casually add it to the HydrogenAudio Wiki over the Christmas break but was immediately banned and my edits deleted so I'm a bit reluctant to end up the same way here, but I can see that the CA forumship is rather more computer savvy and I don't get any feedback if no one tries it out, and to do that I have to first tell people it exists.. Fingers crossed! My website is here: Silk: CuteStudio Ltd. SeeDeClip4: a DeClipping Multiuser Digital Music Server over HTML5. I have sold a stand-alone declipper for years but I wasn't able to access the music very easily with that and the concept of batch conversion isn't as useful as just-in-time processing. Also because I ripped all my CDs into WAV format I found that iTunes ended up with an unintelligible list thousands of tracks link without any context. Plus my laptop has a very small disk. So the basic idea is that it's a server/client model with the server sat on a PC with all the music on, and the client is any modern web enabled device. This can be an iPad, tablet etc or another PC. The key benefit for me with this architecture was: 1) The noisy server PC can be banished to a spare room 2) Writing for the HTML/CSS/JS plane is simpler than battling with all the native APIs in the devices. So there you are, it's early days but the current version should be quite stable but I'd expect it will take a couple of months for all the wrinkles to be ironed out. The free base version allows you to set up a full multi-user networked audio server and has some nice playlist and DJ stack features so it should be a good centre to any DIY system too. And it's free, which is always handy. The paid for bits are mainly for the declipping bits which is of limited interest to many. I find it most convenient to prop an Android tablet up against my HiFi box to use it (on the wifi), at some point I'll put the effort in and get a Toslink sorted out - but I think I may need an iPad for that. In the future I'll create an ARM build too for the Raspberry PI, I've had an earlier version run on the Seagate 1TB wifi disk so it does fit! If you love/hate/don't understand any feature please let me know, all feedback is useful! It's written in C for the techy among us, not the latest python/rails/etc. because that's what I'm used to, and requires HTML5 audio on the browser (i.e a modern, non Microsoft client). In fact the real product is not the music server but rather the embedded website inside, but the server is great at shaking stuff down and it does what I need it to do for me so it should be useful for others too.
  21. I have been streaming iPad Tidal > Wifi > Apple TV optical > DAC. Upgrading to having a Mac connected via USB to Wyred 4 Sound Remedy USB Reclocker > USB to DAC so i can not only stream in better quality but also create a music server. The sonic improvement has been eye opening. I am deciding between using a MAC Mini (2.5 Ghz and 8GB RAM) vs. the latest MacBook Air (1.6 GHZ and 8GB RAM. Pros and Cons from my perspective; its nice to have a new laptop for occasional use and if it gets removed from the server/streaming chain occasionally i can stream using the iPad to Apple TV as before.The Mac Mini has more horsespower a TB drive on board for ripping most of my CDs to and perhaps i would have more apps and processes always turned off on the Mac Mini so a "quieter" computer might sound a bit better. On the other hand as far as storage is concerned a 1TB external drive to augment the MacBook air is pretty darn cheap. Thoughts? Setting up the music server and using the iPad as a remote is also pretty new to me so any recommendations on Remote Control software would be appreciated. Just to get started experimenting using TeamViewer but will probably demo Audirvana for improving sound quality and using their Remote from the App Store.
  22. With the latest firmware update (Version 18033R) SONY HAP-Z1ES is supposed to be supporting Media Server functionality. The Helpguide says that "Some USB digital audio devices may not work for playback." (see http://helpguide.sony.net/ha/hapz1es/v1/en/contents/TP0001220509.html?search=dac ) I've tried to connect HAP-Z1ES via USB with the PowerDac Wadia 151 yet i'm getting "USB device not supported". Has anyone faced a similar issue and is there any way how to get it working? Seems I'll have to employ a USB to spdif converter ;( Thanks
  23. Hello to all, If using this device, can one avoid using either Ultra Rendu or SOtM sMS200 streamers and obtain the same results?: It looks interesting: The HOST Music Server The HOST is the first digital music server of CLONES audio. Equipped with a high performance USB digital audio output, Ethernet port, solid-state drive for music storage, full linear power supply with the super low noise regulator modules. Providing the solid foundation to the high performance playback. The great solution for playing and storing high resolution digital music collections. Custom Linux OS with the ROON Server for the best performance. Also providing the DAPHILE as the difference choice for the user. The HOST also is the platform for audiophiles to make his own PC based Computer Audio System. "For those who don’t have the knowledge to handle their own build, or just lack the time to spend monkeying with it, the Clones Audio HOST makes an excellent alternative. It’s totally silent. It looks great in an audio rack. It’s very simple to get up and running. And it performs quite well with Roon assuming your music library isn’t absurdly large. The sound quality is superb too... -John Grandberg (Part-Time Audiophile) Features SHAAR USB gateway for the clean and high performance USB audio class 3.0 output. Full linear power supply. Double POWER STATION regulator supply the SSD/SHAAR and the Main processor board separately 256GB/ 500GB/ 1TB/ 2TB internal storage option Machined aluminum case, same structure as the ASHER DAC Gigabit Ethernet LAN Port for network connectivity
  24. I bought a microrendu 2 days ago and I feel I have to get a lot of accessories to make a "simple" system "complicated". The reason to choose microrendu is due to its simply design. Now I have to play with router / NAS / Music Servers / Extensions and worry about degrade of sound quality. My original plan is Sotm SMS1000Q WE (or any other optimized PC, like CAD, Mojo etc). For more details about an optimized PC : any PC with low power assumption (generate less noise), separated power supply to USB, low noise circuit design, internal power filter and linear power supply ,EMI isolation, low jitter clock etc. Any kind of optimized PC can feed signal to USB DAC with highest bit rate support via STABLE PHYSICAL connection. [PC - USB DAC + linear power supply]. How about Microrendu? I was attracted by the CA reviews and bought it. Now I realize the system is not simple at all and the system may have inferior SQ due to ethernet transport parameters, plus, the routers and photoelectric conversion modules of those systems are not audiophile grade. [Music Server / Router / Microrendu / USB DAC / Several linear power supply / Maybe Ethernet Switch / NAS]. How could I convince myself to invest further in microrendu system because I could not see any advantage now. How about SOUND QUALITY? Thanks for any suggestions.
