    UpTone JS-2 versus Paul Hynes SR-7

    Hi, I almost never ask a question like "what is the best" because I know how system-dependant the answer is... But after having search the web during hours , I did not get a clear viewpoint regarding these 2 well known LPS.... The Power supply will be used to power 2 devices: -an UpTone...

    Chord 2Qute : power supply upgrade

    Sorry if it is a wrong forum (maybe a moderator could move it in the appropriate one...).   I know that a 12V linear P.S. would be OK (I have already built a few of them), but i am looking for a recommendation based on your experience....

    Chord 2Qute : power supply upgrade

    Hi,   The Chord 2Qute DAC is bundled with a very basic power supply: a simple 12V Wall AC adapter that looks a bit crappy...   What would be your recommandation regarding "the best external power supply" (that could be an accumulator...).   Thank you very much for your replies,

    Service Manual Lite DAC-83

    I do not have the Service Manual, and as Lite removed the reference of many parts, I assume that they do not want the skematics to be published...   Maybe you can ask the websites dedicated to the Service Manuals : if it exists, it will not be costly.   I am still interested by it if you...

    Sennheiser HD 700: Officially Unveiled at CES 2012!

    The review said that the HD-700 tends to have a risk of sibilance.... this is a problem for me, that could keep me far from the HD-700...   Currently I have a HD-600, I will try to get more info on the Audeze ...

    Stunning RKV MKII mod experience

    I did find the dedicated topic related to the OPA627 / OPA637 installation in the RKV. The people who tried this upgrade confirm that it is necessary to add a 68pF capacitor on the OPA637 to ensure stability, but the sonic improvement seems outstanding ...     Quote:   I planned to...

    Stunning RKV MKII mod experience

      Quote: I am going to perform this upgrade on my RKV-II as well, and found the OPA627BP on eBay for 15$, but...following your remark I prefer to buy from a reliable source like FARNELL for example: 30€ each, but I am sure of what I get....   I will do the upgrade with the OPA637BP ...
