andru26 posted a topic in Music ServersJust finished the build of my first Audio PC and I wanted to share it here. It consists of: - HDPlex 2nd Generation H5 fanless case - Supermicro X11SAE-M motherboard - Intel XEON E3-1245V5 CPU - 2x8Gb Apacer Industrial DDR4 - 32GB Apacer Industrial SSD - JCAT USB Card FEMTO The system is powered by Uptone JS-2 LPS and runs on Win Server 2012 R2 + AO in Core Mode. Players I use are Infinity Blade, HQ Player and JRiver, with the first one being my favorite. So far, after about ~150 hours of playback I can say that it's a big step up in SQ from the regular PC I used before. The sound is much tighter, more articulate and faster. The imaging has greatly improved, the background is very dark with much better instrument separation and overall a less digital and more natural presentation. I'm posting here a few photos, I hope you enjoy them: Thanks!
JCAT USB Card, PCIe to USB Audio card for desktop PCs, is the ultimate solution for computer audiophiles who want to achieve the best sound quality from their USB DACs and USB-to-S/PDIF converters. The card created together with Adnaco Technology, the company with expertise in design of low noise high dynamic range (120dB+) data acquisition systems for sonar and radar applications, was made specifically for low noise high performance audio applications like hi-end audio playback. Specification: – audiophile USB Audio output for USB DACs & USB-to-S/PDIF converters – ultra low noise design for noise sensitive audio applications – ultra low noise linear regulators and high quality filters – high precision ultra low phase noise oscillator – uDP720201 NEC controller – two USB 3.0 connectors supporting Low Speed (1.5 Mbps), Full-Speed (12 Mbps), Hi-Speed (480 Mbps) and Super-Speed (5 Gbps) data rates – 5V for USB devices can be supplied from a PC’s power supply via an HDD LP4 connector or from an external power supply via a power jack connector – for noise sensitive applications the 5V USB power can be filtered by two onboard high performance filters with PSRR better than 90dB at 10kHz – in case external PSU is of very high quality, it is possible to bypass the filters and pass 5V USB voltage from the external PSU directly to the USB connectors – for self-powered USB devices a 5V power is not required for the card operation Price incuding shipment 300 euros.
