Innuos - New Re-Clocker
@erik_squires the Phoenix device from InnuOs is a USB reclocker; So yes, USB in and out; No other interface. No DAC.When it is in the path, the only thing the HOST registers is the enumerated DAC;  
Innuos - New Re-Clocker
whelp the internet sure is a dandy thing http://www.the-ear.net/how-to/power-supply-design-innuos-statement looks like that’s exactly what Innuos did; They pulled the USB signal off the PC motherboard and piped it over to the reclocker;~14K is a l... 
Bits Are Bits, Right?
+4 @ozzy62 same exact experience! when streaming in main system Qobuz noticeably cleaner and more incisive than any format from Tidal. No complaints on Qobuz quality but hoping they add more over time! 
Innuos - New Re-Clocker

Innuos - New Re-Clocker
hello @thyname A 4TB Statement costs an eye watering ~$14,400 USD. A top Zenith 4TB + a Phoenix = $8,800 USD;So, for approximately $5,600 USD more you get 2 chassis, a much more sporting power supply, heavy case work etc in the Statement. I assum...

Innuos - New Re-Clocker
Here is my two cents;The InnuOs Phoenix made my AQ DragonFly Cobalt sound many times more expensive. was shocked at the sound pouring out of my headphones. Home System:DAC: Chord TT2; Server: Aurender N10;Integrated Amp: Pass Labs int 250Speakers:... 
Can you use a Pass INT 250 as an amp (bypass its pre amp)?
No there is no “main in” You would simply treat your external preamp as any other source to the 4 inputs; set the volume control on the pass to about 55 and use your other pre;the internal line stage in the Pass is very transparent and will let th... 
Importance of phase and timing optimization when incorporating sub woofers ?
JL Audio has a lengthy white paper on this subject; interesting read. Check out their website for another viewpoint, and one where the author does not insult the audience.

unman M-900u for Focal Sopras 2 and 3
@jbrrp1 I hear you, the m-900 is amazing, but it is not neutral; It has a character, a beautiful one, but it's there; be careful trying to optimize your sound to one piece. Before long things will begin to sound about the same;If you like/love att...
