    I’m 100% sure that the signal reaching the M-Scaler is at the correct rate. The output rate from the M-Scaler is as expected/documented via the BNC outputs. It just jumps from the source frequency to 176.4 or 192 kHz for the optical output from the M-Scaler even though a BNC connected DAC shows the expected rate of 88.2 or 96 kHz.

    I get into this in my review. I have a section on Effect of different BNC cables.

    As for adapters, they exist in every flavor on Amazon and countless other places:

    Why on earth would you use adaptors? If the cable vendor cannot properly terminate a cable, why buy a cable from them?

    Love your review. You summise the impact of the mscaler very well (coherence and timing). I have listened to and enjoyed more music than ever before as a result of my mscaler purchase.

    There's a kind of honesty and relaxation in the presentation of the music (technical presentation - tense music sounds as tense as it should do) that means listening for hours is as enjoyable as it should be. I often think I'll listen to a few songs before bed and the next time I look at my watch hours have flown by.

    Indeed, don’t buy the M Scaler if you value your beauty sleep!

    Just got my M scaler and TT2. Couple quick questions. Since I’m using the dual bnc cable do I basically keep the upsampling ball to white at all times for maximum upsampling? And do the lights eventually go out when you don’t use it? The input ball light went out and I assume once I start playing a source it will turn blue to reflect the dual bnc input that was last selected so I don’t need to select the input each time? The upsampling light is staying on but eventually will it go out? Thanks

    All but one LED will go out when the M Scaler goes to sleep (after like 10 minutes of no signal activity).

    So one light stays on forever? Is it always the upsampling light?

    are you using dual bnc input wdh? if so can someone explain to me what type of source would use dual bnc into mscaler?? wdh are you using dual bnc into mscaler and does this show as a blue input colour. this is new for me any explanation appreciated.

    Is this the only way to connect the Mscaler to HUGO2?

    No you can use the supplied bnc cables and add an audio quest adapter on the end. If you search thread for audioquest you’ll find more posts.
