Two (2) Tripp Lite IS250 medical-grade isolation transformers (one for NAD & spl Auditor, and one for QNAP & Red Wine Audio PS)
All computer gear plugged into UPS (including the Tripp Lite for computer/NAS).
Everything plugged into Tripp Lite ISOBAR.
||QNAP -> CAPSv3 Carbon Computer w/Red Wine Audio Black Lightning Power Supply (12V for the computer & 9V for the SOtM tX-USBexp USB card) -> Cardas Clear USB -> NAD M51 -> Balanced Cardas Clear Light -> spl Auditor -> Beyer T1.
JRiver Media Center 19 configured for audio only. Everything is accessed from my main computer via Remote Desktop.
What I get is a setup that copies the music file from NAS to the music server (keeping in RAM), which in turn streams the music to the NAD via a clean, dedicated USB card (SOtM tX-USBexp) using NADs' own ASIO USB driver. The CAPS computer's audio card and windows audio services are disabled and tweaked to run the absolute minimum services.
