Hi Abyss,

Please let it slide ... I had stated my preference and made my decision in earlier posts.

It is you and your comment thereafter about your thinking on SLT and their capability in response to my posts that is not appreciated at least by me nor helpful ... please dun bother (me) anymore.

Cheers.

Richard
I suggest you go find your own thread then.

YESSSS!!!!!!! THE PARTY IS ON. CONGRATS RAJ!

Are those the Furutech footers you mentioned earlier?

I did check out the Furutech NCF Boosters and the YouTube videos. I think I might try some out- you are a bad influence for my wallet :p

Right now I am using an old antique wooden box to keep my speaker cables off the ground.

Hi Blake,
I feel the Boosters make a bigger impact compared to the signal booster, but having said that, please try to get an audition to hear it for youself before taking the plunge and I'm so sorry for your wallet. Oh ya, please get them from authorised Furutech dealers as there are known fakes/clones floating in the market. Please be very careful sir.

With regards to the Iris, yes sir.....its definitely back on, the party........I am still in awe that an entry level DDC can sound this good after re-clocking by the TP. I sure am glad we decided to go with the TP/Gaia combo.

So waiting of more then two months is over as my Avatar landed at my door steps yesterday.
Initial impression is absolutely positive from packaging perspective, look & feel perspective (it does look & feel much more expensive then it really is) and from the SQ perspective after initial few hours of listening it seriously kicks some a.s.
I’ve read that it takes quite some time to settle/break in, so I won’t be writing much about sound at the moment.
I need to mention two more things - back panel which is full of freaking options to connect it to DAC which I would say is a massive bonus.
Second thing - many producers today don’t take care about is readability of display and here the situation is perfect, as you can see the track number and elapsed time from several meters away. Thanks god somebody is still using common sense (not all of us have a Superman vison).
Two small things which are negative - no user manual supplied and not available for DL at the Dena website and no battery supplied in remote control (even no clue which one goes in as its button type one). Otherwise remote control is impressive as well and can be easily used instead of baseball bet if by chance you don’t have one near you at the moment of need.

Few pics for illustration purposes.

It is actually build beyond my every expectation and seems like guts inside are not a sluch either.
I’ll get back when it collects some hours under the belt..

The TP + Gaia is an "end game" combo, no doubt!

I did it again. :D And bought the new Terminator Plus. I was able to trade in the previous Terminator at the dealer. The TP is played from the fanless fis Audio PC below with the HQPlayer and the high-precision DSD modulator ASDM7EC / DSD 256.



That sounds very good. But I have the feeling that there is still room for improvement. Burn-in has just started.

My questions to TP users:

1. Can Clock Out also be switched off? I am not currently using this.

2. Can the spikes be unscrewed and replaced by others without opening the chassis?

Thank you

Hi,
Welcome to the club. Sound decision in getting the TP. As for your questions,
Clock can be turned on/off, please follow the steps available on Denafrips webpage.

The footers can be changed out, it’s just placed there, it’s not screwed on or anything like that.

Thanks all

I really tried hard to find the clock out switch and even did something men never do: read the instruction manual. :cool:

Where can I read that?

The footers can be changed out, it’s just placed there, it’s not screwed on or anything like that.
Are the feet just glued on?

@StreamFidelity

In order to engage the clock output feature of the TPlus, you first have to install one or more clock out cables to the upstream device, and then you also need to do some button pushing sequences on the TPlus (and, if your upstream device is the Gaia there are a few sequential button pushing steps on that unit as well to sync the clocks between the Gaia and TPlus).

New, out of the box the TPlus clock outputs are not engaged, so as of right now, your clock output is not engaged.

You will know when the clock out is successfully engaged as the clock out light will be illuminated.

Check out Vinshine's Youtube channel for helpful videos (there are several, including guides for the Gaia and clock output from the TPlus to non-Denafrips upstream device):
