    Orgy of Capacitors: The Cap Thread

    In my opinion Jupiter Copper is a way better as bypass cap than Duelund ones.

    Anyone tried to make RJ45-HDMI cable for I2S and connect with USB Bridge like Singxer or Gustard U16?

    Singxer SU-1 Owners

    Fuse protects against over current (short circuit) not over voltage.

    DENAFRIPS Terminator: the King of R2R dac

    Sentence has no logic as every input (except I2S) is internally connected with I2S. So all about DDC connected to I2S versus other inputs implementation...

    That's different story so. You have nice speakers, you should pair it with much better DAC than low budget ;)

    Is it good for X26 or bad for Terminator?..

    Run it for 300h first and don't listen at all. Then compare with other DACs. Other way it make no sense.

    Gustard U16 - the first USB Interface featuring ESS USB chip

    Frequency depends on music file format you have. Buy music in DSD and then you will have DSD

    I own 0.6m Carbon. I like it and used to use for long time. But not so long time ago (couple months) I was advised to try YYaudio silver platted copper OCC cable. And it's amazing cable! Is cheaper than AQ Carbon and definitely better :) Great deal which I recommend because is not just more...

    I'm afraid it wont be so cheap with cables to have good result :) In my system Furutech S032 cable on U16 worked well. Better than Acrolink and black DH Labs I also tried on it. But each system has different needs. The best if you can borrow or rent few and try.

    My experience can't confirm that. 0.3m wireworld cable was only cable that length and was the worst I tested. Other much better was 0.6 & 1 (never tried longer than 1.5m). For me the rule is same as for any other cable. Important is good quality conductor, geometry and insulators.

    I just join the club and very happy with S2 one. Very natural sound, well controlled base. Vocals very clean and organic. Great stuff!
