Using battery power to go off the City's power grid
Great post, @ricevs - many great points there, and you reminded me of a few more things I've been wanting to try. Regarding what you called a "zippy" sound: I'll add to that a pronounced sound of "air" and other micro details.  It is impressive,... 
Using battery power to go off the City's power grid
@sbayne  - My system doesn't use much power.  Just checked using the kill-a-watt monitor, and at 75db, my system uses about 90 watts.  I only have 3 components: amp, dac, streamer. The two b300 batteries provide 6000kWh of power.  I can run the s... 
Using battery power to go off the City's power grid
I have the Bluetti AC300 with two B300 batteries.  For my system, I'll echo what others have said here:  a noticeable step up in sonic quality, most notably a blacker background. I connected the Bluetti stack to 6 of my home circuits using a tran... 
Anyone catch 7 Myths of Digital at AXPONA?
I reached out to Ben today. Ben is still the owner of Mojo Audio, but he recently changed his name to Arjuna Das. Mojo wasn’t sold or isn’t going out of business. He’s stated he’s expanding his operations. I wish him luck. I had his v3 Mystique,... 
So what ever happened to Kinki Studio???

Do I really need an " Audio Grade Network Switch "?
I haven't tried these products - mostly because the premise of improved "clocking", "timing", and/or "less jitter" improving SQ doesn't seem likely given the error correction in the TCP protocol - as well as where these switches are to be installe...

Recommendation for Digital Coax
2nd vote for the "Pangea Audio Premier XL Digital Cable with Cardas Copper" sold by Audio Advisor.  Currently $169 for 2m. I've tried a number of coax cables in this price range and liked this one the best.  I had to spend quite a bit more to bet... 
What I’m looking for in a streaming transport
It will probably cost more than $1500 - but the Lumin U1 Mini would meet your requirements.  There is an inexpensive and simple conversion kit available to change out the IEC so you can use an external LPS with it.  Upscale Audio sells one. 
Improving streaming SQ
@calgarian5355  - I was considering adding a switch to my chain that includes the gigafoil v4.But I bought the ENO a few months ago, and it was an uplift in SQ.  Very happy with the surprising results - knowing how the gigafoil works.At first, I w... 
Mojo Audio Mystique EVO
Just got my EVO back from Mojo Audio.  I had the the Sparkos opamps changed to the Staccato's Ben is now using in the '21 version.It's an improvement to my ears.  Not a change in character, but a small but noticeable refinement in detail and coher...

Mojo Audio Mystique EVO
My EVO B4B is en route from Mojo Audio right now.  I had the opamps upgraded from Sparkos to the current Staccatos they use today in the '21 version. I'll post my impressions soon.FWIW, I feed the EVO from a DCS Network Bridge using AES - BlackC...

Congrats, @c_avila1  "In the zone" - a great description.If you don't mind, what interconnects are you using with your EVO?I recently switched to Cerius Graphene Matrix, which in my system, is was a great match.
