    Steve, was this a package set or did you purchase all individually?

    Thanks Emile, Matt, Steve. I will PM you Steve for the particulars of what you have. There seem to be many options with the Orbi.

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Emile (or anyone doing the latter), Have you experimented with just a local WiFi router only, with no internet connection? If so, do you have a recommendation for a good router in this scenario?

    The first Totaldac D1-Twelve Mk2 DAC in Hong Kong

    I am really enjoying what the Zenwave Audio PSR-14 power cable does on the LivePower. It was a very clear and worthwhile upgrade, and that is what it takes for me to upgrade any audio component anymore. Dave offers trial and sometimes has demo cables to send out with no purchase or commitment.

    Totaldac D1-Driver, the (pre)amplifier driver

    Thanks again. The Bespoke must be very special to be able to team up well with the D1 Drivers!

    Interesting findings, and thank you for sharing. What aspects of the Bespoke do you think your system is benefiting from after the D1 Drivers?

    No I am not an Extreme owner. I apologize as I should have been more specific. I use the Totaldac Twelve MK2 with the D1 Streamer and fanless NAS. I am interested in knowing if Extreme owners are noting anything similar.

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    After installing the new Roon 1.7, the sound of my Tidal streaming is actually not quite as good as it was before. Seems a bit more analytical. No issues with file playback though.

    The first Totaldac D1-Twelve Mk2 DAC in Hong Kong

    I have done this, and there is much more body/density to the sound, most notably. It also sounds even more analog. All around, a very nice upgrade and well worth it to do.

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I think this will be tough to point at one thing. I would put it in the category of warm up and settling time personally. The degree of settling time could be influenced by a number of things I think. Static electricity due to movement in packaging/transit? How far, where to and from, and how...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    The reclocker is additive and never has done any harm to any digital source I have put in front of it. However, maybe someone here with an Extreme has tried with and without the reclocker? It is not a guarantee of better sound. I think it depends on the digital source in front of it. Maybe...
