    XMOS XU208 USB BRIDGES - THE LATEST GEN HAS ARRIVED!

    Thx for your note.   Erratum, seems Wyrd and Intona as reclockers as well (Wyrd : there's a clock on the back on the PCB ; Intona " The 7054-based USB Hi-Speed Isolator is a phy-level receiver/isolator/reclocker/repacketizer working at a bidirectional ...")   About Startech Gigabit LAN ...

    XMOS XU208 USB BRIDGES - THE LATEST GEN HAS ARRIVED!

    Hello,   About the outputs, In my mind the quality hierarchy would be : Optical < Coax-BNC < AES/EBU < I2s     Now I'm wondering about the following : The SU-1 has usb isolation so guess there would be no benefit to add usb isolator but what about "reclocking" add-on ... - Does it worth...

    XMOS XU208 USB BRIDGES - THE LATEST GEN HAS ARRIVED!

    hi, Using the Su-1 since 3 days, don't know whether the burn-in is finished or not but the sound is still improving and already amazing. This is really a big step up over U8. To me those usb interfaces really make the difference in pc digital music, maybe as important as changing for an...

    XMOS XU208 USB BRIDGES - THE LATEST GEN HAS ARRIVED!

      Hello, Interesting reflexion. What is "strange" is the added value VS DAC usb input. Is it because most of the time USB input is not correctly implemented on DAC's ? Thx

    XMOS XU208 USB BRIDGES - THE LATEST GEN HAS ARRIVED!

      Hello   Thank you very much for the feedback. Looking at the XU208 "finished" products (linear power supply equipped, multiples entries) so far only Singxer SU-1 on the market.   Do you foresee any new comer in the competition soon ?   Thx

    XMOS XU208 USB BRIDGES - THE LATEST GEN HAS ARRIVED!

    Hello,   Unless I missed something I haven't seen any feedback/review on the Singxer SU-1. I'm considering buying this one but I'd like to know whether it brings value added over the Breeze U8 (Talema + upgraded clocks).   Additional question, how does the SU-1 performs VS F1 "stock" ?  ...

    MHDT Labs Pagoda ?

    Hello I'm looking for great DAC around 1000 Euros (I'm Europe based). I'm very interested into the MHDT Pagoda but haven't seen any reviews nor direct comparison to other DAC. I know M2Tech Young, Mytek 192, W4S DAC2, Hegel HD25, VDAC+VLINK, Atoll DAC 200. As a reference I also have recently...

    Looking for great portable headphone amp

    Hello,   Let's consider I need a DAC with usb input for laptop PC home use, so I keep the E17 and discard the E12. Let's also say I need something quite little for external use with my iphone.  And I would be interested into an asynchronous DAC and this I'm not sure there's any offer in...

    [New] Philips Fidelio X1

      It's a mobile PC with a basic integrated audio card. So I understand if it's a Fiio then it would the E17 (and not the E12), right ? And what about alternatives ?

    [New] Philips Fidelio X1

    Hello, I'm still looking for a portable DAC/Amp for the X1 with PC or iphone as source. I initially looked at the Fiio E17 and E12, not sure I need a DAC acutally. I've also looked at the JDS Labs C5 that seems a good one too, how would it compare to the 12 ? Then Fiio or JDS ? And are there...

    [New] Philips Fidelio X1

    I'm pretty aligned with your statement. I have remarked in hifi that better cables - in general more transparent ones - does not automatically brings to better sound. Why ? ... I'd say that when a system is not optimized (from the source to the end), a better cable would "highlight" the weakest...
