    MAIN LISTENING RIG:
    FLAC --> Twisted Pear Audio Buffalo III (Sabre ESS9018) DAC, with dedicated trident shunts on VD, AVCC, DVCC and VDD pins (Sabre analog and digital pins), with an NTD1 IV (Pass BI buffer, tuned for current mode DAC's), with an async USB receiver support > 384mhz PCM/I2S & DSD, I2S is routed through Ian's FIFO reclocker, which separates the data from clock, then reclocks to the optimum frequency for the selected I2S/DSD. The FIFO utilizes an Isolator board that isolates out ALL USB/power noise. Further, the clock board is a precision Si570 dynamic crystal that is spun up to 4x the optimum clock frequency to further reduce jitter down to < 3pps. This clock board is powered separately from a dedicated low noise reg, and leveled by a custom ultra low noise, high PSRR LDO. Singled ended output is provided by a Joe Audio high precision Balanced to SE converter. Last upgrade will be a custom battery pack to power the clock board along with custom shunts. --> Custom Made Cavalli Stacker (Tube) or Custom 50watt (85w peak) per channel balanced headphone amp (SS) ---> Custom Paradox with mini-xlr mod with OGC Imperial Cable.
