In my friend group(around 10 audiophiles in HK),3 of us have bought one 2.0 and two 3.0. Both are surprised at the performance of the 2019 version.
Got the experience of comparison at local agent. Almost the same findings, The 2.0 is little bit richer in middle range while the 3.0 get better extension in both low and high endings.Any direct comparisons to share?
I settled on preferring the 2.0 on small scale Jazz and female voices, the 3.0 on classical and live recordings.
Out of curiosity, any idea if anyone has compared any of the Plixir LPS to the consensus top dogs - Paul Hynes SR7/4 or Sean Jacobs PS 3 (may be DC3, can't remember)? I'm interested in a one solution multiple rail LPS for a switch and router. I'd love to go with a ready-made, great sounding solution that doesn't require long wait times and purchasing of queue spots.
This is the PLiXiR power conditioner I am using.Found this recent review of plixir elite vs keces. Not the LPS but power conditioner.
A CDP is simple, but there is no need to make our solution more complicated than it needs to be. A Rendu is a replacement for a standard computer in the audio room. It can accept streams from a regular computer, dedicated server, NAS, or directly from the internet. There is no need to power the server, router, or fiber media converter with a linear power supply. We don’t recommend anything specific before or after the Rendu. We do recommend a linear power supply for the Rendu. We also make a single box solution which is a Rendu with a linear power supply.So, in a SGC/Sonore world, we're poss talking
SGC i5 or 7 w LPS
opticalRendu w LPS
opticalModule w LPS
Intona Isolator w LPS
Switch (maybe upcoming Uptone EtherRegen) w LPS, or Paul Pang quad switch w additional LPS
Gigafoil filter (w LPS?)
Dac w LPS
Router w LPS.
I make that 16 boxes, 8 pwr cords, 8 dc leads, 12-16 isolation platforms.
Just looking at my one-box cdp and tt, and remarking how simple it seems in comparison.
What is the price range of ultimate USB cable?
In my system, a similar phenomenon happens between the Aurender W20 > SOtM USBultra > MSB Technologies Pro USB module; the USBultra must be power cycled on/off each time the source component Aurender is powered off, so that there is a fresh handshake - otherwise these is no USB connection from the Aurender to the DAC.Well after trying all possible on/off recycling options I got it working. Seems my Amber 3 dac must be on first, then power up the server. This is the only way to get Roon to see the Intona 3. Strange, but it works.
