    ISO Regen performance Improvement Cheap!

    What did I start here? - It is true that I tin stranded wire as soon as I strip it to prevent corrosion/oxidation- a life time practice. @Abtr is right that this makes a softer screw connection, but in my case it is okay for this purpose as it is not a permanent solution- I use the screw connectors like many people here (I assume) for prototyping! The cable is being handled in and out of tight spaces though (not ideal). As for my permanent cables, I use proper soldered connectors on both ends which is what I would recommend. My original post on this was in reference to the heat shrink over the screws, and wondering if/why the DIYer (@AnotherSpin) was comfortable with it as a permanent connection.. ATB. b

    Hi, I find that the screw terminals loosen with time. I do have to re-tighten them from time to time and would not think of shrink wrap over them. Do you have the same experience, if so how do you get around it, holes in shrink, bonded screw to housing, solder? b.
  3. Connect your unit to the 2nd adapter port using a quality ethernet cable. Follow instructions in this post (by jelt2359) which includes a link for Win10 https://www.computeraudiophile.com/forums/topic/30376-a-novel-way-to-massively-improve-the-sq-of-computer-audio-streaming/?page=2&tab=comments#comment-613653

    mis-communication perhaps, the original comment regarding the ground plane referred to the thickness of the copper wire not the difference between the conductor materials! edit- as for CCS or CCAl - my preference for Cu over those in audio cables is only from my experience ! Please use whatever you fancy.

    Well- you want to minimize the voltage drop (IR) in the return wire. In the general case where the supplied component does not have its own ps/regulators, the 'load' voltage will be directly reduced by the fluctuating IR in the return (and supply) cable-no?

    @marce - not sure what you want explained. The source is DC but the load/current is fluctuating? Anyway all this is experimental fun and except for our keen ears and audio systems many of us are not setup for scientific investigations.

    As for the DC -ve coax: I would try copper rather than copper clad steel, with as thick a wire as possible to minimize ground plane modulation

    Glad that works - you get the prize!

    @Cornan - Can you mix them up? Make them a couple- coax with the Supra DAC for each leg?

    Well I said similar from an inductance perspective. The SPC wires have a conductive carbon film deposit (hence hybrid) between their outside diameters and the PE insulation plus the overall SPC shield over the two. I removed the steel wire, the shields of the two are joined together at both ends.

    Thanks for this tip - I have no access to Supra DAC but have sort of similar cables lying around. I had some left over tonearm cable (1ft) - the Van Den Hul D-502 twin hybrid (carbon/25.4 AWG SPC). With your 'winning' configuration I am getting a very sweet PRaT'y sound when I use it between LPS-1.2 & uR! I cannot say whether the sound image is as clear as the CAT7/8 but the tones are better (smoother, much like the Gotham). The Cornan cable config = 'High inductance in Faraday cage'? Very interesting. https://www.vandenhul.com/product/d-502-hybrid-halogen-free/ the single bulk https://www.ebay.ca/itm/VAN-DEN-HUL-M-C-D-501-HYBRID-HIGH-QUALITY-TONEARM-CABLE-METERWARE-PER-1-0M/271953916206?hash=item3f51b7712e:g:md4AAOSwry1aQQJk

    Don't you think a product should be evaluated against its design goals? I am sure you can see/hear why an industrial power supply might have different ones from an audiophile product for a home environment. I sure do not want a military/industrial specification applied to any of my super sounding audio products -not only unnecessary but would add silly cost and likely sound worse- a self defeating exercise?

    All in jest right? What instruments did you use with the system?🧐 Have fun. ATB

    thanks - I think they are okay for evaluation purposes and this usage.

    @jabbr. My DIY DC cables are 10-12 inches long which is as short as I can go. I only use the longer ones in the min length they are sold for easy comparisons. The LPS-1.2 & Iso Regen which I own as well as the LPS-1/Regen are great products that I love and enjoy but why would one assume they are perfect under all circumstance? As for tech, measure/correlate, no I am retired several years!
