Aha. I was just confused on iFi's naming of its products. My apologies. smile.gif

Yup, I have seen the thread. The Y cable + power supply makes more sense to me. I didn't like the lack of  a 5v usb tap like the one on the cheaper U-power unit. Now that there is a sanely priced Y cable (that ueover first mentioned) I'm going to order one. I'll post my thoughts later. Could be wrong about this!

I've put up an FS for my Stello U3, if anyone's interested.

What do you guys think about Teddy Pardo's U2S converter? It's also based on XMOS chip but it has an external PSU and according to manufacturer, better clocks than Stello.

I'm tempted to try this out since my setup is pretty much all Naim and you could say that Teddy Pardo is specialized on Naim upgrades and products.

I have the U3 but when i open its control panel & try to update & select upgrade firmware  the select file button is not visible for me  to select the upgrade file.

I am running win 7 64 but, how can I  update the firmware ?

adjusting the resolution has no effect

 

never mind i see the update is self installing

Question for leeperry or anybody else:

 

 

Know where to buy a quality XLR male to XLR female right-angle adapter for a U3? Preferably gold plated. So far I've only found 3 to 5 pin, phase reversals, and gender changers. I wonder if such thing even exists.
