  1. micro/ultraRendu - support thread

    Is 2.6 going to require a new micro SD card via the mail like the 2.5 update?
  2. Why Class D Sucks

    It is, indeed. I had the original 625 and the S2 upgrade was worth it too.
  3. Innuos Zenith SE MkII

    Generally, USB driver support is provided natively on Linux. Have you contacted Innuos support about your issue? I'd certainly do that before getting any add-on device.
  4. MQA is Vaporware

    I'm waiting for the MQA DEAD post.
  5. Innuos Zenith SE MkII

    @austinpop resolved a problem between the Zenith SE and his Ayre Codex by using a tX-USBultra in between, but he wants that tX-USBultra for the SQ benefits. He isn't using it just to resolve the incompatibility. There are a very limited number of known incompatibilities. I have no problem using the SE with my Berkeley Alpha USB.
  6. I don't know why you would want to do this. I use the Startech card on an ATX motherboard to get USB ports from a PCIe slot that is directly connected to the CPU rather than the chipset. You don't have a separate chipset on your X10SBA. So I really don't know whether what you're proposing would result in better SQ.
  7. What 2-port card are you talking about? Here's what Startech says: Due to the bandwidth requirements of USB 3.1 gen 2 (10Gbps), none of our USB 3.1 gen 2 cards can use a PCIe x1 slot. They require at least a PCIe x4 slot to function. You can use a USB 3.1 gen 1 card (5Gbps) with a PCIe x1 slot however. So you could get a 5Gbps card and put it in your x2 slot. For PEXUSB3S24 Startech card, it says The maximum throughput of this card is limited by the bus interface. If used with PCI Express Gen 2.0 enabled computers, the max throughput is 5 Gbps.
  8. Innuos Zenith SE MkII

    A good question is what does the iPurifier 2 do that resolves the problem? It's likely that an ISO REGEN or tx-USBultra would also resolve the problem. So what's wrong with the Zenith SE USB?
  9. What are you powering with 3.3v? Can you give some more detail about what LPS you are using and how they are connected to the motherboard/components?
  10. Innuos Zenith SE MkII

    What's the nature of the incompatibility?
  11. Antipodes DX Gen3 vs Innuos Zenith MkII SE

    Interesting. @flkin and @Kritpoon reported problems getting the Antipodes DX Gen 3 to work with the LIO DAC 2.0. I wonder what Antipodes has changed.
  12. Thanks for your detailed answer. I'd be surprised if your system didn't sound better with a better source given the quality of everything else you have. But right now you're obviously beyond satisfied with your sound quality so congratulations.
  13. micro/ultraRendu - support thread

    I'm not sure why Sonore has a problem with USPS. I used USPS and had no problem, but I live very close to Sonore.
  14. What source are you using with your digital system? I know you bought that inexpensive little PC. What are you using it for and where are your music files?
