New Lampizator Level 4/ Version 4 DAC in the house
The Lampizator transport converts from a computer format such as FLAC or WAV to SPDIF. Here is the Lampizator link that provides a comprehensive explanation. I have had one for about 2 1/2 years and I think it is amazing. However, it doesn't cover... 
New Lampizator Level 4/ Version 4 DAC in the house
Has anyone done any tube rolling with the Lampi Transport? I currently have a Russian 6U5C rectifier tube and I am wondering if there something better like the Bendix tube was for the Level 4 DAC.

Gopher, The transport is really special. I hope Lucasz can come up with a replacement for the Duet receiver for high resolution above 24/96K.I notice mention of folks using the Dueland CAST caps in speakers. I have been using them in my level 4 fo...

I received the Bendix tube last Friday. It immediately improved the sound of the system similarly to the comments above. As it has settled in, I noted improvements to the soundstage - more depth and wider. I paid $25 for the Bendix - an amazing im...

Is anyone using the Lampizator Transport? I have one and I love it. The only limitation is the limit on sampling rate to 88Khz due to the Squeezebox Duet portion used in the transport.

Thanks Glory and Grannyring. I have ordered the Bendix and look forward to the improvements in my Level 4. I have my unit on a Sistrum rack but due to the tubes being in the bottom back, I have the L4 on a Black Diamond Racing shelf using Aurios b...

Hello Grannyring, Where did you end up buying the Bendix 5y3 tube? Do you have to buy one or two? Are there different versions of the Bendix 5y3 tube? I have the Level 4 - Gen 3.5.Thanks,Jim 
Any LampizatOr Gen 4 feedback?
I had the Gen 3 - Level 3 and a year ago went to the Gen 3.5 - Level 4 with Dueland CAST capacitors in the output stage. I also used a Gen 3 - Level 4 for about 2 months. In either case, the Level 4 DAC is a big improvement over the Level 3. 
Standalone Room Correction Component
If you run a media server, you might want to consider Dirac Live. It runs on your computer and will handle 2 and 8 channels. The cost is $650 and they will give you a 2 week trial. I have not tried it yet but it looks very promising. Dirac is used... 
Cables more hype than value?
This topic of whether cables make a difference or not has been going on for some time. I categorize this difference of opinions as "alternate universes". The same type of discussions go on between Democrats and Republicans. I am a long-time Democr... 
Review: High Fidelity Cables CT-1 Interconnect Interconnect
I have owned the CT-1s for the last 8 weeks. I am running a pair from my Lampizator Level 4 DAC to my ASR Emitter I and a digital cable between Lampzator Transport and Lampizator Level 4 DAC. I had previously owned Virtual Dynamic cables and I cou... 
Lampizator Transport?
I have had my Lampizator Transport for a week. It took a day and a half to get it up and running. I didn't really understand how the Squeezebox Duet was suppose to work and then I had to open specific ports in my firewall and router. One final tri... 
Sub woofer that excels at the mid bass wanted
You might consider the Art of Sound Raptor subwoofer. I am running with the crossover at 100Hz with great success. 
Problem with Supratek Chardonnay
Thank you - that is probably the best approach. I was just curious what I might learn from others.
