    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Hi Mike, What do you mean by "sampling them from my files in Roon"? Are you suggesting that Roon can be used with TAS? Geoff

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I must have missed Romaz's and Ray's reports on TAS. Were they posted here?

    Sablon power cords

    I recently purchased 2 Prince power cords after glowing endorsements by many respected members here; one for my Extreme and the other for my Chord DAVE. I was previously using HFC CT-1 Ultimate Reference for the DAVE and an Allnic ZL-5000 for the Extreme both via a Sound Applications TT-7 PGI...

    Sablon power cords

    Hi Mark, What would you estimate the relative benefit to be with powercord from wall to power conditioner/distributor vs. the latter to the device being powered eg. Server/DAC. I guess logic would suggest Sablon King's throughout would be best but if the conditioner has other components...

    Network Improvements and their Impact on Sound Quality

    Thanks Blue58. I might be wrong but I don't think the StarTech FMC is an "audiophile" device in the sense that the clock is of ordinary quality. I don't know the rest of your network configuration but further benefit may be achieved with something like the Sonore opticalModule especially if you...

    Do you know what brand FMC it was before and after?

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Thanks Emile. I'm always keen to learn from expert listeners on what they listen for when making changes to one's system so please can you share some of the tracks you tested with some notes when you get a chance. Cheers, Geoff ps. my Extreme also updated in seconds but I have only 1TB of my...

    Whilst we all wait for TAS; is it safe to update Roon to 610?

    Forgive my ignorance but once "Offloading" has been configure, is there a way to confirm on the web interface that it is activated and working? G

    Network Improvements and their Impact on Sound Quality

    Hi kswanson27. I'm no expert and I don't have the audiophile switches you mentioned. I do have the EdgeRouterX-SFP which I use as a router to replace my ISP Wifi Router. I think Nenon said best regarding the EdgeRouter back in post #245 on this thread. G

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Hi Emile. Will TAS have the capacity to load a convolution filter for DSP? Can you please clarify if the previous discussion regarding JPlay is for Beta TAS or Roon playback. G

    The best simplest mains to subwoofer integration?

    Hi sbo6, Thanks for sharing your experiment. Can you show me, perhaps in a photo, how you implemented the high pass filter at 80Hz with a cap. Is the value of the cap universal between systems? I always thought there is a 90˚ phase shift with a 1st order cap. Not sure if it's audible but it...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    I suppose that means sound quality is much more than the number of execution threads (ET) and memory used. If I understand correctly currently it is 120 ET and 1.5Gb when previously it was 20 ET but it sounds much better now. G

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Hi Emile, For reference, how many execution threads and memory was was RoonAppliance using before the "tweak"? G

    Network Improvements and their Impact on Sound Quality

    Hi Rob, I appreciate the problem with the changing baseline.:p Would it be convenient enough to just connect Extreme to the Waversa W Router directly; bypassing the two M12's to see if there's a profound drop-off in SQ? I think the two M12's made a huge improvement in your previous setup...

    Network Improvements and their Impact on Sound Quality

    Hi Bob, Can you comment on the impact of your "mega switch combo" on the recent Taiko Extreme ethernet/ROON tweak. I'm just wondering if the impact is as great as before with local playback and streaming and if the difference is greater with streaming. Thanks G

    Network Improvements and their Impact on Sound Quality

    I don't know about the Cisco switch but certainly with the EdgerouterX I needed to go into the web browser and turn on the SFP manually. Unfortunately, the flashing lights were not an indication of a functioning port, at least for the EdgerouterX, as they were flashing like the other active...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Well, my update has just been completed. I am a relatively new Extreme owner so never had the opportunity to listen to earlier versions of Roon. I think I started on the previous version (555) and am now on 571. I switched from a low powered NUC running Euphony Stylus. I must say I was not...

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Hi All, I've booked my update for later today and am excited to hear the improvements described above. Does this update negate the Clock Master Priority issue in Roon discussed previously? Should it be reset to default now? G

    Hi octavias, That was the exact issue!! Thanks so much for sharing. Not sure why the SFP port is not set to work by default. Cheers, Geoff

    Network Improvements and their Impact on Sound Quality

    Well sadly the firmware update didn't work for me. When connecting the SFP port from eth5 to TP link with fibre and back to copper into my MacBook, I get the following; My EdgeRouter X-SFP is configured as a router replacing my ISP router. I used the "Basic Setup" Wizard. This is the screen...

    I was having the exact same problem as above this morning. Hopefully this trick will work for me as well. I was on Firmware x2.0.8-hotfix.1which was only released a day earlier? G

    Zero Distortion: Tango Time

    Hi Mike, Was this 10dB "suck-out" in your custom built room? If so, how did you solve it? Geoff

    Taiko Audio SGM Extreme : the Crème de la Crème

    Hi Abyss Man, What were you powering with the LPS 1.2? I wonder if the less that stellar performance was related to it working near its maximum capacity of 12V/1.1A. G

    Hi All, Is it safe to proceed with the latest Roon update? My Tidal favourites are not loading with my current 1.7 (537) build. G
