The Forgotten
@paullb Where did you get this info? Core Power has been in business for some years. Mark Shifter was one of the  original principals, also served in this capacity with Perpetual Technologies.This when BPT still in business.  Perp Tech went out of... 
What I wish I knew before starting my audiophile journey
@tonywinga Estimation of audio journey and tiers of audio very well stated! Audio just like nearly all human endeavors in that complexity nearly always in upwards trajectory. Questions never end, answers are discovered. The one thing I'd add to th... 
Grimm MU1 Streamer - Really "The Best"?
I've never been able to step back from more resolution, transparency once I've heard it, my goal is progress, lower resolution, transparency  is regression in my book. Certainly there have been times when the extra transparency and resolution has ... 
Network optimization for serious streamers
@cowhorn Unless your ISP service has capability of offering more than one IP address you can't do this. For most of us we have only one address assigned as 192.168.1.1, can't have two routers assigned this address.   I had forgotten about the fa...

@latik In stating I was sold on Antipodes, I was within days of purchasing K50 when I was notified the custom build streamer I ended up purchasing came up for sale. Again, K50 was my choice based on the second ethernet port optimized for output to... 
Inexpensive but good sounding power supply (and hard drive) for PC audio?
@agisthos Euphony OS for Windows eliminates any use of Windows as computer, all you get is BIOS screens and Euphony screen. With I9 processor using less than 3% on only two cores in server mode handing off to Sonore OpticalRendu for streamer. Euph...

@waytoomuchstuff Interesting to hear a dealer's perspective on this, I often assume others as attentive to small details as I am.   I've also run in motorcycle and car circles nearly all my life, seems like I'm always around OCD type people! Can...

@nyev Your conclusion in regard to usb seems solid. Looking at how the usb implemented Phoenix vs N20 this is what should be expected.   I'd be very interested in your comparison of AES if you did get the Antipodes, I came very, very close to pu...

@lollipopguild You may be correct, I just seem to recall reading somewhere these devices throw off the unneeded voltage as heat.   I just should also contextualize my impressions of the 1475 as not being used exclusively as network device in my ...

@chriszponder Good to hear your son recovering!   I hear you on how expenditures on audio system can overwhelm our finances. I always tried to stick to rules of not buying anything on credit, having to sell something, didn't need to be audio rel... 
Network optimization for serious streamers
Really, the only 'quality' FMC out there is the OpticalRendu, quality voltage regulation, filtering, clocking. Runs warm, not hot so reliability should be good, hot is enemy of longevity, I'd send back any component that runs hot 24/7, won't last.... 
Network optimization for serious streamers
Don't recall if I mentioned previously, but for gear left on 24/7 I always get lps that can supply more amps than component requires,runs cooler, ensures reliability, longevity. LPS I have on router and NAS have been going 24/7 for years, had one ... 
The Forgotten
I remember when Perpetual Technologies emerged, very early implementation of up and over sampling, DSP. Some real shenanigans going on with that company! I did have a totally Frankenstein Perp Tech setup at one time, everything completely  modded ... 
What I wish I knew before starting my audiophile journey
Path OP followed is legit path, lots of churn, but with internet marketplaces this is much easier than path I had to follow pre internet.   My pathway was first determining sound quality I was trying to replicate at home, for this I listened to ...

@nyev The Cable Company lending library has a multitude of cables available for demos, used them for years for all manner of cable shootouts. I agree with your characterization AQ Diamond, don't feel the need to replace this usb cable.
