Network optimization for serious streamers
Hi @sns Just a point regarding the EtherRegen running hot. I’m no electrical engineer, and it’s 3 decades since I completed my physics, but I would expect the higher voltage to generate less heat. If we assume power requirements to be constant,... 
Network optimization for serious streamers
I have just placed an ADOT FMC in front of my EtherRegen. It feeds into the ER's SFP socket, with Ethernet out of the ER's B port The effect has been transformative, as significant as the original introduction of the ER - maybe even more so. It s... 
Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
Hi @antigrunge2  Going back to your clock for EtherRegen advice, can I ask what you're using? I don't want to spend silly money, and certainly not more than I spent on the ER.  I've noticed a Chinese clock, BG7TBL, seems to be a popular choice. ... 
Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
Thanks @antigrunge2  First suggestion already done. Russ Andrews router connected to metre long copper rod stuck in ground Second, thanks for the advice  
Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
@ozzy The Zenith is Ethernet input only  
Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
Well, I now have a fibre kit feeding my EtherRegen, and even in the few hours I've had it up and running I can clearly state that the level of detail, texture and musicality have gone up a notch, without impacting the overall warm tone which I hav... 
Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
@sns I have looked at AfterDark, but for such an audition the overhead of import taxes and possible return are discouraging.  My ADOT kit should arrive in a day or two.  
Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
@discopants , @sns  Thanks.  Useful info there.  Regarding the SFP modules, they would be supplied as part of an audiophile fiber kit, so am assuming they're fit for purpose - though this would seem to be a highly subjective area.  As far as I ca... 
Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
@wsrrsw You mention Ethernet in and SFP out.  Unless we're using different terms to describe the same thing, I'm wondering about SFP in (A side) and ethernet out (B side) to streamer  
Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
In case there's been misunderstanding here, currently I'm doing: router => RJ45 A-port => RJ45 B-port  =>  Innuos Zenith RJ45 I'm curious about: router => FMC RJ45  =>  Fiber  =>  ER SFP A-port   => RJ45 B-port  =>  Innu... 
SOtM dCBL-CAT8M - Is this the new reference in LAN cables?
@lalitk . I accept that it's a case of digital horses for digital courses.  However, even before the ER was added I felt the ISOCAT wasn't doing much. Interestingly, I asked SOtM's May Park what the component sequence should be if I additionally ... 
SOtM dCBL-CAT8M - Is this the new reference in LAN cables?
Slightly off-topic, but I’m pretty happy with my DCBL-CAT7u between my EtherRegen and Zenith Mk3. I have a Wireworld Starlight between my Netgear router and ER. It certainly bests: swapping the Sotm and the Wireworld => Sotm most likely the... 
Entreq and Innuos?
@ozzy I've just noticed your mention of the Russ Andrews unit.  I have the RF Router mk2 on order, plus cabling. Can I ask if you're using the basic cabling, or the Technical Ground Weave?  Also, have you connected the output cable to the mains e... 
Qobuz dropping rights to my favorites. A pox on their house (resubmit)
I've noticed titles which drop off usually later reappear.  I can think of some of Nick Cave's albums as recent examples of this. It's a pain, I admit, especially when the favourite status is not restored.  
Has anyone used the new Innuos 2.0 Sense music app? Compared it to Roon?
I too believe Sense to be better than Roon.   The only feature which tempts me back to Roon is DSP.  We all need a tone control now and then. I did ask Innuos if they plan to add such a feature, and the reply from Head of Sales was thus: One of...
