    My Pachanko Server is here. A bargain at 16k Euros?!

    Pachanko is absolutely right. The final result depends very much on all elements of the network, including ALL cables, switches and other "little things". And the better the digital equipment, the greater this influence. In the end, it all depends on the specific implementation.

    My Pachanko Server is here. A bargain at 16k Euros?!

    I wanted to say that, under equal conditions of comparison, playback via the Diretta protocol is much better in comparison with standard UPnP / Open Home. I have compared local storage Fidata SX20U playback on Sforzato DSP-010/030 over a carefully constructed network many times. In equal...

    My Pachanko Server is here. A bargain at 16k Euros?!

    Without a doubt, any server over the Diretta protocol will have huge benefits if the end player supports Diretta, such as Sforzato, for example. The clock also gives a greater improvement in SQ.

    My Pachanko Server is here. A bargain at 16k Euros?!

    Roon Core is in Mini? In this case, can you use Fidata as a second server running Roon? In Roon, you can choose where the data will come from to Sforzato?

Sforzato is one...

    Takatsuki Tubes

    Hi Steve! And here we are, finally at the WBF! As many experts know, the life time of tube changes very much depending on an amplifier or environment, so it is very difficult to say the guaranteed operation time. Though this is just for reference, Takatsuki defines 300B is more than 20,000...
