Power Regenerator or Conditioner for Digital Sources
@vinylcat, best leave the amps plugged into the dedicated line. The current draw by amps is non linear, and is in pulses rather than a continuous draw like from a heater. If a transformer (or any type of inductor as found in many power conditioner... 
Stack Audio-SmoothLAN Network Filter- WOW!
@agisthos, I apologise for the error in describing the back to back Ethernet filters. The circuit of the Halo HFJ11-1G46E  Ethernet jack as found in the DEXE-ISO filter contains inductors, both air and iron core types, caps and resistors. They do... 
Stack Audio-SmoothLAN Network Filter- WOW!
The back to back Ethernet filters containing ferrites and caps are well established, so filtering on Ethernet lines is effective. Conducted emissions are below 30MHz, above that frequency are your classic RF interference. I think you'd be unlucky... 
How Is This Possible? Must be Counterfeits
As an update , the Furutech cable, connectors arrived. The spade connectors still stripped at the cable support, but held firm on the actual conductor connection. Resistance values are all below 1 ohm now. The new cables are a different sound than... 
Speaker cable change??
@williewonka there's doubt about using solid core cables for speakers. Speakers by their very nature, vibrations travel through the connectors, solid stranded cable is designed for vibration free environment, such as in wall. Vibrations and enoug... 
How Is This Possible? Must be Counterfeits
I bought a bi-amp speaker cable set from Aliexpress  , so four cables, the Odin branded with the wood block and spade connectors. The cables arrived within a week, so that’s a good start Before the cables were used, it was worth to test the cable... 
IFi Zen Stream connection problem — hardwired from Wi-Fi extender
Mconnect is not the greatest at what it does, from what I read . The Zen has NAA as client and if it is the same system built into the Neo stream, then that's a very reliable connection. NAA works only with HQPLAYER , that software also supports... 
Power cable Advice...
Last week several Monosaudio 902 Power cables arrived for connection to power amps, Electrocompaniet AW250R and Accuphase P-4200 in bi-amp mode. I made a two outlet receptacle from two Furutech FP-SWS(G) into a PVC box with Furutech inlet cable, ... 
Accuphase, fuses
@rfprice , just used XLR from the get go, due to inherent noise suppression. The 720 was delivered with a set of grey rca cables.  
Accuphase, fuses
@blisshifi I would use the SR fuses but the website does not publish the fuse discrimination curves, so it's not possible to replace a SR fuse with the original. There's fast and slo, but that doesn't follow a standard and the cutoff times can var... 
Accuphase, fuses
@rfprice , yes, I have a whole loom of the grey and blue cables XLR and RCA. The only cables I had before were the Oyaide Tunami Terzo series, not a supermarket here of cables to try out, the Accuphase were a level up in transparency.  For the MM... 
Lumin Hifi Rose or Aurender
Owning a Lumin U1 for a few years now, very happy with the resolution and reliability. If the Lumin doesn't work, it's a network problem, so look elsewhere. Only used the factory reset button once, very early in the setup stages where I goofed up ... 
Supratek Owners Thread
@tksteingraber , the shipped rectifier tube with the Cabernet 6SN7 is from JJ Electronic (Slovenia) JJ GZ34 5AR4 is their ID. Many thanks for the list of choices...looks like the RCA are a good start.  
Supratek Owners Thread
@jslateiv , there is a difference now on the burning in process, now 48 hours in. An FM Tuner (Yamaha TD-500) is feeding the input and monitoring with SPL headphone amp, HD820. Power is raw house AC power, no special cabling on AC lines at all. In... 
Can LUMIN U2 do DSD gapless?
Any Lumin can play gapless, it totally depends on the file quality and the player software.
