    sonore micro rendu streamer firmware V2.8

    Latest firmware recently upgraded. Great streamer has roon, Spotify and tidal compatibility. One of the best bang for money streamer. Definitely a step up over raspberry pi streamer. no power adaptor included this can use any 6-9v DC power (lower voltage recommended)

    Audio GD Master-11(Combination from Master 7 and Master 9)

    If the jumper is off it means DSP bypass is disabled   It's a wrong method to check if a jumper is linked you're supposed to do a continuity check if it beeps it's linked (on) if it doesn't beep it's not linked (off)

    Upgrading the Dac board on a master 11 even if possible would cost alot considering most of the cost of the DAC would be in that board the 2 amp board would be considerable much cheaper. However I'm surprised NOS7 can't be upgraded considering the DI board are separated

    Audio GD Master-11(Combination from Master 7 and Master 9)

    I wouldn't call $400 phono high end more like mid end. a decent MM phono stage is around $4-600 but for MC you'll need to go around >$800 before getting anything decent. Why I say not high end if you compare to M11 you will be disappointed in comparison

    actually even it uses RCA the signal from a turntable is balanced. Ground is on a separate wire and cartridge wire is always left + - and right + -

    Turntable, Arm, Cartridge... Headphones!

    Just use a vacuum record cleaning machine and clicks and pop will be down to real minimum. I mainly use turntable with speaker but sometimes connect to my headphones and it's always make me smile when I do so
