Separate names with a comma.
The Chord Elite's would be Dave or Hugo 2 not Qutest though.
As a pure desktop DAC, Qutest is better than the Hugo 2 with variable output, better inputs.
I was under the impression that iPurifier3 etc only added an advantage if you were using mains (AC supply) or playing via a laptop?, but no SQ benefit if you're, for example running the iDSD BL via a DAP, both running on their battery?, is this correct?
Anyone tried to connect the iDSD to the their router via ethernet? I know it doesn't act as Roon endpoint, but does it work well as a server streaming using Muzo?
Please share more if you can!
See my iPurifier3 comparison thread: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/ifi-audio-ipurifier3-0.883536/#post-14371438
Anyone knows if I can use regular USB 2.0 A-B cable for iDSD?
Edit: Nevermind. Tried one of the 2.0 cables. Works great.
Hello, thank you for reading, I will order the ipurifier usb 3, thank you
Is anyone able to hear any difference between the different filters? If I hear any difference it's very subtle. That also goes for DSD512 and DSD1024 remastering.
It's also interesting that the PCM upsampling fiters like Bitperfect+, Gibbs Transient Optimised, etc also work under the 2 DSD remastering modes. Is this the way it's intended?
I do wonder if the PCM filters can be applied in conjunction with the DSD remastering function.
In case someone wants to know how to get DLNA server to work with iDSD. I just got it to work and posted some instructions in the official sponsored thread.
If you upsample a nonDSD file to DSD512/1024, iDSD first oversamples to 705.4/768kHz. None of the filters applies in those 2 modes. You can turn the knob, and may appears that you are switching digital filters, but they are not doing anything.
If you play a native DSD file, iDSD will only play it in bitperfect mode. If you upsamples a native DSD file to DSD512/1024, there is no bitperfect mode because a digital filter has to be applied.
hello, did some try USB 3.0 instead of 2.0,
USB 3.0 is much faster than USB 2.0, I did not find it useful to use ipurifier 2
