Heh yeah. After already spent $2500+, there's some part of me that just wants to say screw it and start experimenting with DIY. I certainly liked the Buffalo DAC I heard - maybe a tube output section to that would be fun. Probably a more interesting use of another $800.

I'm still interest in Buffalo but I have to get the Squeezebox back since all my flac are at NAS and located another floor from my listening chair.

DL III is definitely a great DAC for its price.

i got mine used (mint condition) at an audio store in chicago for $499 (guy gave me a $100 discount cause it was $599 used). so it was practically a steal at that price. before that, i was considering the more expensive rega dac or maybe the musical fidelity m1.

Good news.

I was able to get in touch with them and got some questions answered.

Thing was sounding GREAT last night.

The MK II sounds like an awesome upgrade, but I can't swing that right now frown.gif

I totally heard you on this.  Save two hundreds upgrade now or pay full price and order next year.  I will come to a decision after Christmas.

post #428 of 1488

That will be a quick decision. :)

 

If it is any consideration, all PS Audio upgrades I have installed have been gorgeously presented with excellent instructions.  Very easy and fun.

 

Plus, it is quite cool how the top of the PWD and PWT comes off.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to join you guys and order the MkII upgrade kit. Maybe next time.

Instead of upgrading, I decided to invest in getting and using two Apple Airport Expresses: one probably for an Ethernet bridge to the router, and the other for connecting to the PWD Bridge. For this idea, I give the credit to HeadphoneAddict.

I had originally tried connecting mine with a wireless ethernet access port. It worked ok, but the occasional drop out was enough to annoy me into hardwiring it to my router. Took some time & effort, but the wire & plugs were cheaper than the wireless gadget and I never get dropouts now.

I wish I could use the hardwire connection but my DSL / router are on the 2nd floor while my PWD is in the basement listening room.

That is basically what I am doing with my two Squeezebozes. I have an Airport Extreme as my router in "N" then using two Airport Express as extenders. I connect the ethernet output of the Airport Express to the Squeezebox and then the digital output of the Squeezebox to my Digital Time Lens and from there to the PWD and Wadia 21 (in the other system). Before this I was going wireless with the Squeezebox with a lot of drop outs. None since the new configuration.

I ordered the upgrade to Mk II status today. Probably won't see the upgrade kit till late January, but I can rest easy, it's done.

Congrats! The following is from PS Audio December 2011 Newsletter:

 

"December and January shipping allocations are sold out and the remaining kits will be shipped in February or March depending on how many more of you sign up.  Best you can do right now is February but those allocations are going fast."
