Not sure whether it's a problem with the balanced input in the BIG7 or the toggle switch in the rear. It's not an issue with my Bryston as i.e. Balanced connections worked fine with another DAC that I plugged it into. Just so that I am clear, I have one toggle switch in the rear which allows me to select between AES/EBU and spdif and the front backlit switch toggles b/w USB and spdif. I have the r2r for pcm/dsd.

    As an aside, my spdif, which used to connect my CDP to the big 7 has also conked off now.... the big 7 is en route to Poland for repairs. Indeed frustrating. But I'm using this opportunity to get the superclocks installed!

    Cheers

    Thanks for sharing your experience. It's harder for me to ship it back to Poland for upgrade because of the distance and the customs processes I have to deal with. Not easy when you are living in this part of the globe.

    Same in South Africa where I am currently resident....I am making a customs declaration though that the export is for servicing and repairs. Hopefully that should work

    Dear Sujay, did you ship it with its flight case?

    Is yours single ended? I would suggest buying a pair, used or new, of KR PX25, special EML Lampi mesh globe anniversary 45 (one of these two sounds better than the other depending on the system) and KR 242 (which if the gain works takes the system to new levels). Get the KR 5u4g recti made for the Lampi.

    tubes sell well in the used market so you don't lose much if at all.

    Sorry but can't help with single PX4, best is to try KR Audio and give them a number for your tube - they will tell you how to look it up, and get another one made for you. The PX4 are good but not as good as the three above.
    No not single ended.

    I do have the KR 5u4g. I will contact KR. Thanks

    There is an issue with the GG playing Hi Res with the I2s according to PF. I am sure is isn't much of a problem. I will know more Monday when Lukasz gets back with me. It is playing though and PF says that the I2s sounds better than USB. They are big I2s proponents.

    I may move to other tubes at some point. I just need to get my equipment home. I am a little taxed out on funds for toys! One used GG and dual PF servers...

    You see the GG. The two boxes on the left are my new fully loaded Pink Faun STREAMER 2.16 duals.

    I got duals because I want to use for video playback as well. This was the best solution I could find. Plus the PF power supplies are as sexy as you can get. I also prefer to not have a bunch of different boxes hanging off my equipment. One big box hanging off one big box works for me though!!

    No, far Northern California. Six hours north of the Golden Gate Bridge.

    All three units are at Pink Faun in Rhenen NL currently.

Then we put in brand new KR 242 and they were a few levels up. A bit hard, probably due to the newness, but the noise floor went so low and we could see through the music. The soundstage would grow huge with the music
    have been running in the 242s and they are improving all the time, big soundstage, powerful dynamic swings. Piano sounds terrific, fantastic bass.
