that would seem to be the crux of the issue and it is not clear to me that the inherent 'extreme' value proposition remains without the magic mojo of how the parts (h/w, s/w, power) are combined in a maximally synergistic manner...............got to start saving those pennies here
compare at the click of a button, yes
50/50 distribution, no
this cries out for understanding...........
could it be sensitivity to the switch feeding the extreme, and buffering, flow control, etc
could it be that different DACs prefer one or the other, with buffering, flow...
highly recommend Guantanamera even if you 'only' have a digital setup :)
i haven't tried all the versions, but i find the original CD sounds better than the 24/96 version.
when everything in my system is clicking, the sound is breathtaking on speakers or headphones.
in addition to the singers...
in my case, i've been listening to Fleetwood Mac since the early 1970s.
i find the only Mac i can still listen to is the early stuff with him and Jeremy Spencer.
that music, and its feeling in the notes (well described above), has aged well in my opinion, especially
compared with the...
i want to really commend emile for what he is doing here--designing units together to have synergy and to jointly/holistically improve sound quality.
as he said, he is not trying to design a best switch for all situations, but a best switch for feeding an extreme. this is as much about synergy...
my take on this is that taiko will be able to control the flow of data to/from the extreme.
how often is data transferred, in what size packages/chunks, etc.
if this is under the control of other devices, it can be accounted for to some extent, but if you control the transfer process for the...
follow up: went from 5v switch power supply/wallwart on oM to a 12v sps into a
DXP-1A5DSC Dual Stage Regulation Power Supply (10v pre-reg, 8v out).......big additional improvement, especially noticeably on vocals with jump factor added as voice goes from silence to voiced sound..........even...
the trick for me was setting up wizard as a switch, not as a router.
i had the same problem when i was running it as a router even w/dhcp turned off.
not sure what causes the problem but if you can get dhcp elsewhere, you could run it as a switch.
