TRL Dude or Joule 150 MKII for Major Pre Upgrade
My Dude works fine with my low gain power amp. But when it was used with a pair of high gain tube monoblocks, I could hear some humming noises. So I got rid of the ground loop by floating the signal ground from the AC ground at the power amp, but ...

Wyred DAC-2
One of the first mods for most audio gear is changing the diodes to "soft recovery" diodes to reduce noises. This is a common practice for modders. You can get these diodes from partsconnextion or stores like that.

Which Audio Van Alstin amps did you have? What did you think of it? 
WAV versus FLAC
Thanks Mlsstl and Daverz. Good pointer to the link, Daverz. However, it is for the new SB Touch. I have a Transporter and a SB3. Do you know any sources that explain similar mods?
