  1. Very interesting to hear. And that way you dont use sata at all, and have shut it down? I have a PPA V2 Pcie-usb on my Supermicro SBA X10-O , sound is much better than the MB ports both 2/3. Using sata for the kingston oss ssd, but with separate 5V supply. Right now using ATX HD-plex 250w. Next will be a Stamheim S-HPULN 3A for the MB, but waiting on transformer. Using only 2x2 rams to have very low power use. Supermicro is such a nice MB, and sound is already very good.
  2. I received and installed the Uptone usb adaptor yesterday. Using it between a RUR and a Arcam Irdac, it replaces a diy adaptor, (that had beat every usb cabel I have tried). But the Uptone adapter is just sounding better, sound is more natural, and with very high level of detail in sound. It`s a very good buy, much improvement for these few $

    What music player software do you use the most?

    Tidal and minimserver via BubbleDS to JPlay streamer. Best that I have tried. 😀
  4. I have put a Voltcraft FPS-1132 on my router/lan/wifi unit. The difference is night and day in my system. Sound is much more open and dynamic, and more quiet in between notes. This has to be the cheapest and best tweak I have tried, besides using a seperat power to the OS ssd :-) Even movies and music via cromecast/tv/stereo is better sounding. Thanks a lot to Corman:)
  5. I used the same key going from w2012r2 to w2016. No problem:) Sent from my Lenovo YT3-X50F using Computer Audiophile mobile app
  6. This is my experience: I have used the script and settings in this thread with great succes, it makes a very big improvement in sound of my system. But still I was realy looking forward to the release og AO2 for W10, and checking the website on a daily basis. (I bought it about 2-3 weeks before it came out.) Installed it on a fresh W10, but was very disapointed with the sound coming from the system with AO2. Made 1 more fresh install, just to make sure everything was as as it should be, but it did not help. I suppose it was system dependant, but still a bit disapointing anyway. Went back to the script in this tread, and sound was again as good as it used to be before. Maybe I will try AO2 on a server 2012 set-up one day, since a lot of people speaks highly of this. (And as I already payed for AO2). Regards Ove
  7. Hi Mikey. The manual says 60 hours burn in. So the answer must be: give it more time. But sounds like You need another powersupply, the whine should not be there.. Try a good linear. And find or diy a short USB DAC link instead of the one that comes with the Rur, it makes a big difference. Im VERY happy about my own RUR:-) (Linear and very short USB link to DAC)
  8. I cant tell you if one is better than the other. But Im using RUR without 5v ( tape on pin), and it sounds even better now. W4S told me in a mail that the RUR needs the 5v as a detect, but then I saw a review that stated the opposite, and just tried it out. Short diy usb link to DAC and a linear PS makes RUR sound a lot better too :-) (Using an IrDac and BOTW like you)
  9. The RUR works great with Arcam IrDac too. Even with the 5v pin "liftet" I made a very short USB link from RUR to DAC with 3 silverplated kobber wires, Realy sounds a lot better than the Stock cable.. And made a powersupply from a big transformer, and an Audiowind reg. board. Topping it by changing the capacitors to blackgate/nichison from the drawer. Setting it to 8,8v output. After some burn-in time this is sounding very good;-) Everything was made onestep at a time..
  10. Thanks Jiffi32 Nice to hear RUR works well with the PPA V2 usb card. Has nobody tried RUR with an IrDac ?
  11. Hello. It looks like a very interesting device:-) With very good feedbackfrom users. Is anybody using RUR with a PP2 V2 usb card? And with a Arcam Irdac ? Thanks in advance Laurits.
  12. Looking forward to hearing about your findings with the Belleson reg on the A-270 board :-) Will you be testing it on both the OS ssd, and the PPA usb card ? Regards.

    Dedicated 12V Power Supply for CPU

    Sorry, my fault..I had to look a little closer.. One of the 12v i on the 20 pin side.. Not only the 4 pin.. But is +12v always the ecu supply ?
