Headphone Inventory

Beyerdynamic Tesla T1 (Desktop)
Etymotic ER-4pt (iPod Touch)
Beyerdynamic DT-990 Pro
Sony MDR-V900
AKG 240M

Headphone Amp Inventory

SPL Auditor
Yamaha C-80 pre-amp (gone)

Source Inventory

QNAP RAID Array (7.1 Tb RAID 10, Dedicated to Lossless only)
QNAP RAID Array (5.4 Tb RAID 10, everything else)
C.A.P.S.v.3 Carbon computer (accessed using Remote Desktop)
NAD M51

Cable Inventory

Kimber KCAG (Balanced)
Cardas Clear Light (Balanced)
Cardas Clear USB

Power-Related Components

Red Wine Audio Black Lightning (12v for CAPS computer & 9V for the SOtM tX-USBexp USB card).
Tripp Lite IS250 medical-grade isolation transformers (2)
All computer gear plugged into UPS (including the Tripp Lite for computer/NAS).
Everything plugged into Tripp Lite ISOBAR.

Audio-Related Tweaks

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.

Software:
JRiver Media Center 20 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.
