  1. Great work! Thanks for your efforts! After John Swensons review, I can’t wait to receive mine! I was one of the original LPS-1 orders, so I’m hoping I was part of the first 80 orders - now I just need a JS-2 and I will all set! Thanks again for burning the midnight oil so all of us can get our new toys!
  2. The "Official" Aurender Discussion Thread

    If this becomes available in a future firmware update , would you need to have a ravenna compatible DAC?
  3. I’ll bet a new update to Tidal app with MQA will be released soon. Seems like the direction they’re headed!
  4. Small Subwoofer Recommendation

    The JL Fathoms are great subs!!
  5. I have auditioned and owned at least 15+ USB cables and so far , nothing has sounded better than the Cardas High Speed 2.0 USB! It is about the same price as the new Gemni 3.0. Also, they will custom make the Y split version if needed for the IFI Micro iUSB 3.0 too! If you are in the USA, I ordered mine through The Cable Company and you can tell them when you call you want what I just custom ordered and they will know about it (they had told me absolutely not possible when I inquired, but I pushed them hard to ask Cardas for me and sure enough, they were happy to do it! If enough people ask for them, maybe they will start making them!
  6. Looks cool! Keep us posted! I wonder if that HDMI LVDS board could be somehow used with the Brooklyn DAC to convert the Brooklyn to I2S ?
  7. It’s all “foreign” to me 😜 , maybe I should be glad I live in the states ? (Although I’ve actually heard you have better electric in EU than USA for audio.
  8. I actually have at least 10+ different releases and formats of Kind Of Blue. The MFSL DSD (ripped from SACD) sounds very good, however I give the 2007 Japan SACD (ripped to DSD) the upper hand, it is by far the best version I have ever heard!! (Including late ‘80’s CD Rips, Vinyl Rips, original Vinyl Mono Rips, etc. ).
  9. So after 1 week of almost continuous burn in on the new Genmi 3.0 Y Split USB cable,,, I’ve decided to return it!! It does not sound very good in my system! It seems to roll off the treble a bit and bloat the low end and take away some of the air, separation and details I had when using two Cardas Highspeed 2.0 USB cables (one in to IFI Micro iUSB 3.0 from Aurender music server and a second out from Micro iUSB 3.0). I ended up deciding to have Cardas build me a custom made Y split Highspeed 2.0 USB cable. I should have it in about 10 days

  11. I will try 13.2V vs 12V just as an experiment!
  12. I wonder why you could not get it to work? I have the IFI Micro iUSB 3.0 and I have had 3/4 of these Y Split USB cables already and all have worked fine with my DAC ?
  13. Thanks!! All very helpful! I did order the new IFI Gemni 3.0, it should be arriving today, so I will give it some listening tests! I have a 60 day return period (music direct), so that will be helpful! I did have a JSSG one from Ghent, I actually sold it to a friend of mine, it was okay but not ideal synergy in my system. I may give the Teradak or Elijah a try too !
  14. Please do post your listening impressions and comparison of both , that is the stuff that is helpful to us CA users (unbiased comparisons from actual users vs. pro reviews and comparisons that can be biased). The only thing I suggest is to perhaps start a new thread on CA with the comparisons/ listening impressions so that it is not done on a sponsored thread such as this one ?
  15. This looks like a great product! I may look into having one shipped to me in the USA (this store is in France), unless I could find someone selling this in the States ? I could probably also have one custom made for me in Hong Kong by Ghent Audio.
