    Converting Ripped SACD Files to DSD

    I gave up making the .isos early on in my time with the Sonore software and have been having it directly rip to Sony DSF. This also saves a huge amount of HDD space. Never quite figured out why I wanted to save them as an .iso and then convert them. The DSF version (backed up on two other...

    Do Mobile Fidelity Vinyl Re-issues Have a Digital Step in the Process?

    Sure, there may liability there but separating that for moment, I was really commenting on the boring ‘digital vs analog’ debate. Step back a minute and take it in.

    Do Mobile Fidelity Vinyl Re-issues Have a Digital Step in the Process?

    I find it humorous that some of their analog releases are ‘detuned’ DSD digital.

    Anyone Listen to the Taiko Extreme Server and Go With Something Else? Anyone Make a Change from Taiko?

    OP, I am curious where you heard the Oladra? As far as I know, they have only shown them in Munich…

    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    Another happy customer of Scott’s. I was able to audition a K50 for a few weeks which was key to my decision to purchase. Scott was great to work with.

    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    The only way I can see them not answering is if how they handle grounding is a proprietary thing. If so, I can respect that but still don’t understand it.

    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    Thank you for trying to help me answer my questions. At this point, I want / need to know how Antipodes handles the ground for signal and chassis. With that, I can make informed decisions on how / if to proceed. I will keep pinging Mark Cole.

    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    Thank you Mark. I am a bit confused. What about connecting a K41/50 to a (mains) chassis ground system only? Eg only with equipment that are chassis ground? I am specifically thinking of the CGS ‘zones’ of my Shunyata Everest Power conditioner. Your post seems to suggest I could make a...

    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    I am looking for where to place a CHASSIS ground wire to the K50. Speaking with Richard from Shunyata during a demonstration of their upcoming Altaira CGS and SGS units, he told me the majority of the benefits come from using Chassis grounding and that while signal grounding adds to it, it...

    I have also read posts from Shunyata that it doesn’t hurt to try the CGS - even if your unit is plugged into one of the power conditioners.

    Introduction of my new Antipodes K50 Music Server

    Have any of you tried an external grounding system (Entreq, Shunyata CGS etc) with your Antipodes K50 etc? If so, where on the chassis did you connect your grounding wire?
