Your honor, the opposition states that.... but may I suggest a better alternative ..... oops I thought we were in Parliament Ok so now I have to consider a dedicated power conditioner. Here in Australia, we have our own smart branded power. It's call Thor. Here is a picture and link to the specs. https://www.audiotrends.com.au/Thor_PS10_Smart_Power_Station.html?action=viewProduct&itemId=1110 As soon as the finance ministry approves it, I shall dispatch my office to make the purchase. But as you know, running a government, means you have to prioritise. There are a bunch of stuff screaming, 'Buy me now'. For example, this Auralic Aries was at the shop, sitting on top of Ragnorok and Yggy, looking very funky.... and it has a AES/EBU output, which is purrfect for Yggy. It's a music streamer, that works off WiFi or Ethernet, to tap into your NAS (Network Attached Storage) i.e your terabytes of music that you've accumulated from birth and also tap into Tidal's endless supply of music. So this is very appealing and is a consideration .... in the year 2020. Finally this surface as a sale in the local classified but I'm undecided if I need it.. or if it's going to give me an improvement. http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/123570-fs-m2tech-hiface-two-usb-to-spdif-interface/ ..... seriously I'm awaiting the arrival of your Hugo 2. The fan base is equally large, even here in Australia. Ps.... I wouldn't even dream of buying another DAC after Yggy, let alone Hugo 2. I'm on sandwiches for the next 6 months. No more wagyu beef or sashimi.
