  1. I've searched around a bit and haven't found a thread that's directly on topic, so: I have a Slim Devices Transporter (two actually), and alternate between LMS and Roon. my server for both is a late model mac mini. music library is a 3TB drive, directly attached to the mini via USB 3.0. Lately I've had a problem with network noise, and have tried a variety of solutions, including optical links, to eliminate it. the cause does not appear to any one thing, so i'm looking at everything. Has compared a directly attached USB drive to the same via Thunderbolt? looking at noise and sound quality. similarly, has anyone experienced a difference between directly attached storage and a NAS, when used in a streaming set up? again, focused on sound quality/noise. thanks/

  3. Hi, Has anyone tried using one of the USB to Ethernet adapters. The reason I ask, is I'd like to place my DAC near my preamp and amps. But I want my computer close to me so I can fiddle with settings, restart it, tag files etc. it would take about a 20 foot USB cable to do this and I know that's bad. I would need two of these, one to convert USB 3.0 out to Ethernet and another from Ethernet back to USB. I'd also need an USB 3.0 female to female adapter to attach my Lampizator USB cable to, and then into the USB port on my DAC. It seems like a good solution but I do worry about SQ. Below are the links to a couple of these items on Amazon.

  4. Hi - first post. Any advice is appreciated. I’ve been running in circles trying to select components for my first computer audio system system (dac, speakers and headphones) for several weeks. My budget is approximately $1K, the system will be running off of a late 2012 iMac, and I’ve already settled on Emotiva Airmotiv 4 speakers. For the dac/amp I want something that will allow me to seamlessly switch between speakers and headphones. I’m leaning towards the Audio-gd NFB 15.32, but I’m also wondering if the Meridian Explorer would provide the same or superior SQ with additional portability? Has anyone had the opportunity to compare the two? Are both compatible with the USB 3 ports on my iMac? Would the Meridian be able to drive headphones as well as the 15.32? Has anyone tried pairing either with Airmotiv 4s? Thanks for any feedback. Ed
