    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Big thanks to Christoph for upgrading the firmware for me. Sure the magic is back. The presence and transparency which has been missed for such a long time all seem to come back to life. I would say that the presence and transparency is back to 90% of previous state. In my system there is a...

    Melco S100 audiophile switch

    I would go for Melco S100 because the improvement is more comprehensive. SOtM with clock gives you a much improved high yet the bass is light and you need to think about some remedy for that. I have not tried SOtM with sPS 500 but my experience with even good LPS for SOtM the improvement is not...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Hi Steve, I heard you clearly here. You probably got me wrong on that or maybe I did not write clearly enough. I understand that it should be 4 feet under each equipment and I am doing that too in all my equipment. What I was saying is that the effect of one set of 0.8 under the DAC, another set...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Thanks Steve for your advice. I would certainly try get hold of a set of 1.5 for audition. As for vibration control I tend to have some different opinion. I look at vibration control and footers as part of the process of frequency manipulation. Whilst doing their job of damping vibration (and...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Thanks to Romaz for sharing with us all these valuable experience for tweaking the extreme. I would certainly revisit this wealth of information very often. While I would agree to most if not all of his findings I do notice that I seem to be walking a different route and hopefully can still...

    Melco S100 audiophile switch

    I tried the 100Mbps outputs of S100 as the last switch connecting to the NAA and yes the sound is a bit more musical compared with the 1G ports. One could describe it as less raw and less edgy than the 1G ports and there is no slowing at all. The drawback for me is that there are some dropouts...

    Melco S100 audiophile switch

    Here comes the part II of S100 audition. The two S100 switches which my friend Raymond bought one for me and one for himself just arrived today and he brought them over to my place and we continue our audition of these 2 brand new S100. I must say that the s100 is really something and they...

    Melco S100 audiophile switch

    My Cybershaft OP21A has 4 separate outputs and there is a choice of isolating the ground or connecting the ground with chassis for every output. In my situation I have selected isolating the ground for all the outputs so there is no chance of the ground being contaminated even if there is...

    Melco S100 audiophile switch

    It is quite unlikely that we can schedule any gathering to fully evaluate the S100 because of the Coronavirus situation here. So I would try to give our early impression on the S100. This is based on an audition by me and another buddy after burning the S100 for a week. I have not tested the...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    This is my first post here in WBF although I have been reading through this long thread quite a number of times and also some friends have also cross referenced to my system before here in WBF. So I guess I am not that new either. I was among the three buddies in our group who purchased the...
