    Furutech Pure Power 6E NCF

    Translating the Polish description: When it seemed that it couldn't go higher and better than Pure Power 6 NCF, the Furutech team rolled up their sleeves, got to work and created... NCF Power Vault-E, a strip that, at least in theory, should land just below PP6 in the company hierarchy -em...

    Innuos Statement: Nextgen vs Non-Nextgen

    I got my Statement back from Portugal on Tuesday where it got upgraded to Next-Gen. So I'll just say in general; everything is better with the next-gen, there are no trade offs. Main things I have noticed immediately: bass definition and clarity were the biggest differences you can tell...

    A new star in 2019 : Innuos Statement Server

    I installed the Sean Jacobs umbilical cords a few weeks ago. They provide a very obvious upgrade to the sound. Like a layer has been removed; more clarity. Separation clearer and clean punchy purer bass. No downsides; only positive. The first 1 week with 24/7 music playing was a bit up and down...

    Furutech Pure Power 6E NCF

    I am thinking about purchasing one, but I am worried of a new model coming out soon? Isn’t the Pure Power 6 NCF over 10 years old now?

    A new star in 2019 : Innuos Statement Server

    I have been messaging Steve too on and off for various reasons for over 1 year now. He responds extremely quickly, very knowledgable and helpful. Really sad to hear the lack of help given to @Sampajanna .

    Need help with Melco S100 PF clock SJ dc4

    Yes, very happy with the sound. Large reduction in noise floor and micro+macro dynamics are greatly improved.

    Innuos Pulsar ????

    Nice writeup on your experience and various setup options tried. Could you comment on the sound differences you heard of the Zen mk3 vs Pulsar?

    Need help with Melco S100 PF clock SJ dc4

    Hi thanks for your reply. I don't really know how to check the fuses, they are inside and not the easy type you can just check. I waited 5 mins before connecting the 12v and still nothing. I'll go and get a cheap VOM tomorrow and see maybe its the power supply. I didn't send that over to Pink...

    Need help with Melco S100 PF clock SJ dc4

    So I'm not able to boot my S100 switch properly. Let me explain the story: I purchased a Sean Jacobs DC4 Arc6 Dual Rail, Melco S100 Pink faun clock upgrade and 2 JSSG360 cables on the used market. I received the units about 3 weeks ago. On the first day receiving them I tried connecting...

    Innuos Pulsar ????

    I'm not sure on how good it is vs the PheonixUSB, but given my current experience with how good both Waversa LAN (ext2 and reference) products worked in my system, I would advise you to try a Waversa ext usb.

    Innuos Pulsar ????

    That would be great, I'm sure others too would be interested in the results!

    Innuos Pulsar ????

    Hi thanks for your reply. Have you compared files stored on a NAS connected with ethernet (via switch) and streaming the same file?

    Innuos Pulsar ????

    I am currently using a Zen mk3 and have been looking to upgrade for a while. I wish the Pulsar had an internal hd for local files. This is the only reason I am hesitant to go for one. I believe Innuos will upgrade the Zen/Zenith line next with internal storage, cd rips etc. My internally stored...

    Innuos Pulsar ????

    Hi Vangelis, maybe I am understanding something wrong in your post. At the start you mention that adding the Phoenix USB 'makes a mess of the music.' Then after you mention that for the best sound, you still need to have the Phoenix in the chain?

    Ethernet cables to and from your switch?

    Could you possibly clarify what you mean by upstream vs downstream? I am waiting for my C100 to arrive today. From what I understand, it is better to connect the side with the Melco name printed on the first router and the 'un-named' side on the switch? Thanks

    Voodoo Audio Cables

    Could you elaborate on how you hear their difference compared to the Zenwave in terms of tone, speed, bass etc?

    Magico A5?

    Don't forget to include the Townshend Platform as well. Might outperform all the above-mentioned.

    Waversa EXT-LAN Reference and Streamer - My Take

    I auditioned an EXT1 and saw an immense improvement. So I ordered the Reference. I am also waiting on a Melco S100 with Pink Faun clock/wiring upgrade with the Sean Jacobs DC4/Arc6 power supply. I am hoping these will synergise with the Waversa. I'm guessing Melco switch -> waversa -> streamer.

    Waversa EXT-LAN Reference and Streamer - My Take

    I've just bought and installed the LAN EXT Reference yesterday. How long shall I expect the break in process to take?

    Innuos Pulsar ????

    Nice review. I believe the Sean Jacobs power supply will need at least a month longer to break in (possibly more), maybe you will feel the mid-bass will get better. I have always tried to tell people that the Sense app is incredible and that the Innuos they remember from the past has nothing to...

    Optical cable polarity

    Hi, I have recently purchased an MSB Premier, a really great DAC..Prior to this I have never used an optical cable in my system and noticed what I believe to be polarity labels, with 'A and B' on each side of cable. I also checked the inputs on the optical side on the Pro usb module, as well as...

    So you say stick to copper, even with a 10 meter run, and get a good switch to clean up?

    Help me fix my ethernet.. Switch vs filter? Deadline Monday

    Thanks. My router does not output fiber, I currently have VDSL 200mb line, they will be adding fiber to the home soon on my street. I am reading some threads and many users are using the Ubiquiti ER-X-SFP EdgeRouter. Is there a benefit using this vs a Sonore FMC like the opticalmodule deluxe?

    Could you let me know which Finisar modules are considered the best and which fiber cables to look at? Thanks

    Help me fix my ethernet.. Switch vs filter? Deadline Monday

    When you say 15m copper cable, you mean a standard ethernet cable?
