  1. Please post photo of factory "sticker" on back of unit with build info. TIA
  2. Sounding WAY too much like that Light Harmonic boondoggle. Design by/via "crowd" apparently has inherent flaws.
  3. USB audio cracked... finally!

    The comparison would be interesting, particularly since the price differential is approx 10/1. (ps: still loving my Lush)
  4. You may want to try placing the LUSH before the txUSBUltra, if that's possible in your system. This will lessen, though not eliminate, its effect.
  5. Now THAT I did not know. Just reread MQA info on Aurender site and now "get it," I think. Looks like everything besides the A10 is "MQA Ready", to borrow from ROON terminology. This means that these renderers will pass the MQA encoded bitstream to an MQA enabled DAC. Thanks for the clarification.
  6. ????? TMK there are several MQA enabled renderers currently on the market. For example: http://support.aurender.com/mqa.html
  7. USB audio cracked... finally!

    Thanks. Is it powering the entire audio system, or possibly only front end components? Also, any pointers to info on how to convert to balanced?
  8. USB audio cracked... finally!

    What size Topaz isotrans are you using, what is plugged into it and does it make any mechanical noise? TIA
  9. Audio PCs: Waste of Time?

    Invest in a really good streamer; spend all that extra time listening to music.

    Seems we are quite possibly pursuing similar goals ,,, just have different ways of expressing it.

    Great that something so simple works for you. Such simplicity would not result in the quality/type of sound many of us are getting out our music systems, however. It's another one of those age old questions/debates - as old as music reproduction.
  12. Article: Computer Audiophile Turns 10 Today!

    Congrats Chris!! This spot has been a godsend in allowing me to move up the learning curve of "computer audio" at a much accelerated pace. Much of the musical pleasure I am now experiencing would not be there w/o this place you've built. Many, many thanks to you and the entire community.
  13. Tried the Lush w/o the IR. I like the combo much more than the Lush alone.
