    I always leave mine on standby when not listening.

    New $20K Ultrasone Volcano headphone amp

    It doesn’t look like $20k build quality. Stamped steel case and cheap looking RCA posts. Are there any internal pictures?

    I suppose I would of thought this amount of upscaling was obscene a couple of years ago, but reading about and auditioning Chord’s upscalers has changed my views on this. It is a low computational overhead for PCM and results in a signal that is more faithful to the original analogue signal...

    I am upscaling 44.1 to 705.6 kHz, so double the numbers above. If upscaling PCM it makes sense to use the full capacity of the DAC.

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    The TT2 is engineered for optimal sound out of the single ended output. It is not a given that balanced is always better, the whole circuit design needs to be taken into account. Rob has explained his design in some earlier posts.

    K50 is £15k, which equates to $20k USD.

    What hifi has always been the hifi equivalent of the Sun. Fine for keeping up to date with what new products are on the market, but I always take its review opinions with a huge grain of salt. The review ratings usually reflect the advertising spend of the particular brand in question.

    Clive, Looking forward to your thoughts comparing HQP upscaling to your m scaler. I am currently running Sinc-L (2M taps) with LNS15 noise shaper.

    I have an AC12. It is like a trans-atlantic cable or an umbilical cable used in a subsea oil field. The cable is so heavy and inflexible that the EX half floated in the air without resting on its feet (probably made worse by the fact that my AC12 is only 1 metre). I was concerned about...

    Hugo TT 2 by Chord Electronics - The Official Thread

    I agree that this is the solution. When I had a demo TT2 I also couldn’t get optical to work. I exchanged messages with Rob and he indicated it was a cable seating issue. You should feel a definite click when the plug snaps in, and some cables require more force than others. I had a good...

    Roon can be a bit of a faff to update too when they release new versions.

    Just tried software update again and it is still the same. Can you double check that you see 4.18.1 in the About page in HQP settings?

    Yes, I even saw the message that 4.18.1 was installing

    I ran the update and rebooted, but in my HQP about page it still says I have 4.18.0
