    Does anyone know whether the USB input #1, which is the USB type B connector, is able to do MQA? Or is MQA available only through Ethernet and USB #2 input?

    Focal Elegia....a mistake?

    I am about to buy Elegia, as I am in need of some closed back cans. Is there anything better out there at below $1,000 price point? Will use it with my Ayre QX-5 Twenty for home, and either Dragonfly Red or iFi xDSD with iPhone XR on the go.

    REVIEW: Comparison of 5 High End Digital Music Servers - Aurender N10, CAD CAT server, TotalDac d1-Server, Auralic Aries, Audiophile Vortex Box

    Absolutely! That’s how I compared streaming with my Ayre QX-5 Twenty. Ethernet to Ayre (using its built in Bridge as endpoint), and USB to Ayre USB input, using ZENith as endpoint

    None taken. Hopefully someone else will chime in. That’s what I thought too, and that’s how I used Roon for more than two years. What I can tell you for sure, is that ZENith MK3 is a great server. As a server alone is worth the money. With a highly optimized USB audio output as “bonus”. Since...

    Yes. I answered the same question in another forum the other day. That’s what I do with my ZENITH MK3. I don’t know why you did not like my answer

    Just an update: I went ahead and ordered my own ZEN MK3 through my local Innuos dealer. Now the waiting begins. @Nuno Vitorino when do you expect to ship the ZEN MK3 to USA? Thanks!

    Sub $1,000 amp for Focal Utopia?

    This is going to be for a secondary system. Any suggestions for a good amp that works well with the Utopias? No need to have a DAC built in. And I don’t mind getting it used from here. And for course, the cheaper the better Other requirements: need to have balanced Headphones jack, balanced...

    The HeadAmp GS-X and GS-X MK2 Thread

    Totally agree! chip means nothing. Look at Ayre QX-5 Twenty: it has the sabre ES9038pro chip, and it one of the most musical / warm DAC out there

    The HeadAmp GS-X and GS-X MK2 Thread

    Anyone experimenting with after market umbilical cords? The stock one looks solid, but I always wondered if getting an after market one would yield additional benefits.

    iFi AC iPurifier - Video Mini Series - The look, the tech, the lowdown. MORE ADDED!

    Has anyone actually purchased and tried these? So, if I already have a power conditioner (in my case Isotek Solus), I would still benefit from this? Do I need two? One for the wall plug adjacent to the one that Solus is plugged and one on the Solus itself?
