    Can you confirm if would just need two converter boxes plus a Multimode Duplex Fiber Optic set to isolate the DAC? I can see that the prices these devices really decreased since I considered them a few years ago!

    This is the description of the product : Baaske Medical Ethernet Network Isolator 5kV
    Yes, this is one of them. I have one similar to this on order, but I'm using this one right now with good results:

    Very important to keep the cable from router to this device about 1-2 feet because it is powered from the Ethernet power.

    BTW, I am currently upgrading the Overdrive SE you have to Overdrive SX. Takes it to a whole new level, competing with the best DAC's, and I can put an Ethernet interface on it as well. This is my current reference. I use Jriver to play with Ethernet. Going out for review soon.

    It eliminates error correction.

    An Overdrive sits in one of my offices.

    If u can still recall, u helped me shunt a M-Audio Transit USB convertor into an Apogee Clock thingy back in 2007 / 2008. That was the start of my journey on file as source. If u are developing a network playback device, please do share some information. Very curious..
    I have developed a new product, the Interchange, which is just like the Off-Ramp, but has Ethernet input rather than USB. The Ethernet is DLNA-based. I can also install the Ethernet module inside the Overdrive DAC. I have to relocate some devices to the heatsink or it gets too hot. Inside the DAC gives the best performance.

    You just cannot beat DCS's transport, it has upsampler inside. It's the most expensive piece for a reason.

    I'll bet I can come pretty close with a cheap transport driving a Synchro-Mesh upsampler powered from a Hynes-based Dynamo LPS.

    You can upsample via a computer running HQplayer also.


    Also, aren't DCS transports from Esoteric?

    I find the EMO EN-70e to be a good performer.
