  1. Thanks, that took care of it.
  2. I have installed the new 3.0 version of Audiolinux and am very pleased with the SQ improvement over the previous version. I'm using a NUC7PJYH with the latest BIOS upgrade, recommended BIOS settings (including HPET), with 2 sticks of 8 GB RAM (both showing active in BIOS settings). My problem is: In the older version of lqxt, I used to get a prompt before the completion of the start up program loading that would enable me to load the operating system into RAM by entering "Y." In the new program, that prompt doesn't appear, and when I select "RAMROOT enable" in Expert Settings, nothing happens ( eg no dialog box pops up to confirm that RAMBOOT is enabled). I click on "SAVE" and it grays (indicating that it is processing the script). Eventually the greyed SAVE icon regains it's coloring (meaning that it has completed it's script), and I reboot the system. Still, I get no option during the next start up program loading that would enable me to load the operating system into RAM, and if I later remove the USB operating system stick, the system locks up and must be rebooted from scratch all over again. What do I need to be doing differently?
  3. Excellent link on the subject. Best I've ever read. Thank you Afrancios!
  4. I find your description of the SQ of this configuration to be spot on. However, I would add that there is also a significant improvement in the specificity of the stereo image. The effect is most dramatic on small ensemble live venue recordings. The representation of the ambient sound field around each instrument now quite noticeable and very convincingly contributes to the impression that the actual dimensions of the recording have been transported to my listening room. The effect, when going from one recorded venue to the next is quite striking and is the best I have heard from my system to date. It is important to note that this improvement is much like, but greater than, the effect of having already copper weave shielded over all of the signal, network, and power cables in the equipment stack.
  5. Beautifully done! I would really appreciate it if you would provide the links for ordering the gold plated plugs, copper weave shield, and really cool looking outer cover.

Original owner, like new, with Meanwell 7.5VDC , 2.9A/22W energizing supply and hook-up cables. $275.00 includes shipping within continental US states, and PayPal fees.
  9. Have about 100 hours on the LPS-1.2 replacement for the LPS-1 as the power supply for the ultraRendu . I am taken aback by the remarkable increase in transparency and transient speed that the LPS-1.2 has made. For example, well recorded acoustic bass notes are reproduced to include each note’s attack, entonation, and decay characteristics. The same is true of well recorded acoustic piano and violin. Percussion instruments, from cymbals, to tom toms and kick drums have an immediacy and openness about their sound that is much more realistic than I’ve ever heard anywhere but in live performances before. With so much more of the subtle artistry of the musician’s performances now faithfully reproduced, the enjoyment of music is more exquisite than ever. Thank you, thank you, thank you UpTone Audio.
