Denarips and Vinshine split
Your original title may be quite apt Denaf"rips".  I don't think anyone would deny, Alvin and Vinshine have played a significant role in making Denafrips what they are today. With Denafrips recent mishandling of the 15th versions of DACs, the lau... 
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
What we all thought has been officially announced by Alvin, please see below; https://youtu.be/ksjgWvRLor0?si=zGpdQFU3lbkUjCQU  
@member referral not working anymore
I'm glad it's not just me. I tried clearing browser cache etc thinking the issue was at my end  
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
Well spotted; that's really interesting, and hence why Denafrips are saying for example the Pontus 15th is on the same level as the Venus, or words to this affect. But I agree, they really need to clarify what is going on  
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
I agree with everything you've said there. It's a sorry state of affairs at Denafrips right now.  
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
I received an email from Denafrips Europe today, advertising the 15th versions; this is a copy & paste from the email: "The Enyo 15th matches the sound quality of the Ares 12.1, the Pontus 15th matches the Venus 12.1, and the Terminator 15th ... 
Denafrips Pontus *15th* ?
I've still no idea what is going on with Denafrips/Vinshine; I'm not sure if there actually is a parting of ways, as down in the shipping notes on the Denafrips site, the notes reference Vinshine several times re: EU and UK VAT/Duty, so nope, no i... 
Stack Audio-SmoothLAN Network Filter- WOW!
@tksteingraber your experience with Josh/Stack Audio matches mine withe 2 purchases I've made with them so far. It's great to see. Just a quick update on my SL; I swapped the Network Acoustics streaming cable for my DH Lab Reunion after work, bet... 
Qobuz Connect working Beta demonstration....yay!
@dogearedaudio  glad you jumped in there; I don't even know what Chromecast actually is 😄  
Stack Audio-SmoothLAN Network Filter- WOW!
@teknorob23 ah ok, thanks for this. I knew the ENO was no longer available but didn't know there was a new version in the pipeline. Don't think I'll be trying it though; the ENO was around £700+, £900+ with the NA streaming cable; no doubt the ENO... 
Stack Audio-SmoothLAN Network Filter- WOW!
@audphile1 I feel that's what I am hearing now I've contrasted the two units; the ENO is downplaying dynamics compared to the SL. Honestly, I enjoyed my system with the ENO, and was engaged by it, but the SL, albeit on a short initial comparison, ... 
Stack Audio-SmoothLAN Network Filter- WOW!
I received my Smooth Lan yesterday. Didn’t get to plug it in until I finished work, so about 4:30, so didn’t listen much. The SL was slotted in between my LHY SW8 switch and Innuos Zen Mini mkiii, replacing the Network Acoustics ENO. I kept the ... 
Qobuz Connect working Beta demonstration....yay!
Some people prefer the streaming company's own app; it's interface, playlist creation/saved playlists, recommendations algorithm etc.   
Qobuz Connect working Beta demonstration....yay!
Apologies, I think the email was to Qobuz users who had signed up to the "Qobuz Club". I had to login to view the demo video  
Qobuz Connect working Beta demonstration....yay!
As you can with Tidal and others, you can use the Qobuz native app to stream direct (Connect) to your streamer and bypass the streamers own app. Probably not the most technical of explanations but that's it in a nutshell
