    How Source the Highest Resolution Downloads?

    Maybe whatever "fix" Qobuz promised back in February 2019 was never delivered after such a long time? https://community.roonlabs.com/t/qobuz-24-bit-flac-is-playing-at-16-bit/61088/25 FYI - both downloadable versions of Wonderful Wonderful (10 tracks) as well as Wonderful Wonderful Deluxe (13...

    Insane Ravings or Exaggerations.....?

    It turned out to be a piece of cake to download the full-blown installers of both 10.8.0 and 10.8.2 thanks to the power of Google, I verified both files and their SHA-1 checksums were perfectly fine...

    Cable Modems

    No packet errors? No dropped packets? Utopia? Ideal world? Watching too much La La Land or something? Holy cow, even swapping different cables would result in various error rates https://lightware.com/support/lightware-testing-lab/cable-testing...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    It would be interesting to compare this 1TB hybrid Optane H10 to other NVMe drives https://www.amazon.com/Solid-State-Drive-Internal-Express/dp/B07RL812DW If Asus WS C621E SAGE were actually able to support Optane DCPMM, we might also "sacrifice" some DIMM slots to give them a try while...

    SOtM sNH-10G Network Switches x2 : The NEW KING of USB/Network Gadget Setup

    There's this deal when I purchased my Melco S100 back in December 2019 and they're knocking 15% off all items available on Rakuten, HFS1155 was never listed on Rakuten and therefore I couldn't go for that particular option even if I wanted to https://media.buyee.jp/campaign/rakuten191219/en/...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Professional version of HQPlayer 4 (close to US$3,000) could provide offline upsampling but those upsampled DSD files are huge https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55165-hqplayer-pro/?tab=comments#comment-912934 Though M.2 drives are going all the way up to 4TB already, therefore each PCIe...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    FYI - this particular USB DDC (with quad SC-CUT OCXO) seemed to have dual AES that might / might not be compatible with Terminator, maybe check with the owner of this company if you're interested? http://www.nctodolbs.com/dp-505-pro/ https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=573161673153...

    Melco S100 is in da house, awaiting a reply from @hols and let's see how it goes. BTW, even Rajiv @austinpop is working on his own comparison while Emile also happened to get his hands on quite a few switches recently...
