Need help here. I m trying to install SOtM sCLK-48 as an upgrade to my existing tX-USBexp card. My case is an HDPlex H5s (1st gen), it's very similar to the Streacom F5. My motherboard is microATX size and I have one SSD in the case. The good old CAPS v3 Zuma setup. Is there anybody out there who has accomplished this? Comments? Recommendations? Any pics?
Hello everybody! 1st of all I have to introduce one of the best solutions all over the world to build your own Music Server - it's a HDPlex H5 computer case and ATX-compatible fantastic PSU which covers all you needs I think. I have to explain some moments before story begins. Some time ago I have used my ordinary home computer to listen my favorite music and setup was: PC with Sotm tX-USBexp USB PCI-E card connected to clock board sCLK-xxxx with Windows 10x64 I have used an hiFace Two - M2Tech (BNC) powered via D.I.Y. adapter from cheap China linear PSU. For that moment my DAC was Schiit Audio Gungnir Multibit and I was enjoyed quality of this setup at all. Than I moved to Audiobyte Hydra converter and plan was to upgrade power for Hydra and Sotm+clock. I have ordered THREE PSU at 2 cases - one 5V/5A for Hydra and second 2-in-1 was 9V/3A+9V/2A.
Here is my just-completed build of a fanless silent music player. Components: - HDPLEX 2nd Gen H5 fanless chassis - HDPLEX HiFi 250W DC-ATX (nanoATX series) power converter - HDPLEX 160W AC-DC w/PFC (nanoATX series) PSU - Supermicro X11SAE-M uATX motherboard - Intel Xeon E3-1275 v5 CPU - 16GB DDR4-2133 memory - Samsung 950 Pro 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD - PPA v2 USB card This box will be used to run HQPlayer. Target OS is Windows 10. The M.2 SSD is a placeholder which will eventually be removed to make the box diskless, booting from a mounted iSCSI drive served by a silent NUC box acting as NAS and containing my music library. I'm also waiting for an HDPLEX 300W ATX linear PSU to arrive, and will be able to compare the sound between the above PSU setup and the 300W linear PSU.
