    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Does this mean we will be able to export Roon playlists to TAS?

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Genius!!! Now I need to figure out how to get one made for the Bocchoni connectors on the Sablon Kings. Mark?

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    In my two week demo quest to answer the question, do I really need a $10k power conditioner, I tried many different combos, including one where the amp was plugged directly into my dedicated line. It sounded night and day better on the TT-7. Also, I believe most of the TT-7 owners are...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Let’s just say that if you don’t plan on buying a TT-7, don’t listen to it. Interestingly, I did not care for the C-7 (entry version of TT-7) so I sold it and kept the Extreme on the Stromtank with the rest of my equipment. Once I heard the Extreme on TT-7, there was no going back. My setup...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I totally agree with this statement. As one of the few headphone only users on here, I can easily hear the improvement with not just the Extreme but changes to the Extreme as well like a King Sablon, better USB, better power, etc. Before the Extreme, listening to music on my system was very...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I have been running a optimized wired network to my Extreme using my MacBook Pro to control Roon. Since TAS can only be controlled through an IPAD, what are other Extreme owners using to transmit a wifi signal. My current network is ATT Fiber --> ONT --> EdgeX --> M12 --> Extreme.

    Sablon power cords

    I've gone down a very similar path, replacing an HFC Pro PC with a King PC to power my amp (Riviera AFC-10) that's fed by a DAVE. I also noticed the same improvements as you in density, bottom end, soundstage, etc. The Prince and King do really well with power hungry equipment as it provided...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I would actually prefer a DC barrel input so I can use one custom LPS with one high end power cord to power the Taiko switch, modem/router, and the M12 switch. I've had the M12 for about two weeks now and its hard to imagine my system without it. Even if I do end up taking it out after getting...

    Hi Emile, will your network switch be optimized to feed fiber to the Extreme or copper (or both)?

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    No matter how each of us describes it, one thing is true, the engagement factor has gone through the roof!! I literally can't stop listening! ....and I get to eat my cake too, with Roon. Bravo Emile and Team!!

    For TAS? I do hope so, as it would allow the same upsampling for the DAVE dac that I am able to achieve with Roon + HQPlayer but with even better sound quality. Also, I heard that Taiko Audio is getting a DAVE dac to hear this upsampling goodness, is that true?

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I would like to add a few words to this. It could just be me, but I have not noticed the degradation of sound with the last two Roon updates (including the one applied yesterday) that others have noticed. I am using Roon only via HQplayer. My case is a little different since I am using...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    There is so much to Roon that is very hard for me to give up. One example is when playing an album and noticing on the lower right side that there is a new album by that artist is irreplaceable. My only other alternative is to constantly check for new albums by all the different artists I...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Thanks for the advice. That does make me think twice about it. I’m definitely more of a “set it and forget it” type. I do plan on keeping the Att modem for backup. If it gets to be too troublesome, I will just go back to the Att one. I do like having the SFP on the Edgerouter. One less FMC...
