Suggested Power Cable for Streamer
@bluethinker, the best thing that I did for my music streamer was to power it using an Sbooster linear power supply, and then plugging the Sbooster into my AudioQuest Niagara power conditioner using a not too expensive AQ Blizzard power cord.   
A quick question on what streamers to consider.......
@garebear, my music server/streamer is a simple Roon Nucleus that I use to stream music to wifi speakers, my dedicated headphone setup which is hard wired of course, and other Roon Ready devices that we have all around our condo, from our patio de... 
Best power cord for Audioquest Niagara 1200
@10024skip, I use an AudioQuest Thunder power cable with my AQ Niagara 1200 power conditioner, and they work exceptionally well together for my dedicated headphone system. At the time I purchased them they were about the same price from my audio g... 
The $10,000 Question
@jrcotner, as you live in Minnesota, I love New Ulm, you should give Bill Soderholm a call at Stereoland in Bloomington, MN. I’ve been buying audio gear from him since the 70’s since he opened his store in Minneapolis. He and his team were super h... 
Furman Upgrade to Niagra
@navyachts, you’re very welcome sir. My pleasure.   
Furman Upgrade to Niagra
@navyachts, I think your system would definitely benefit from getting an AQ Niagara power conditioner and an equally good AQ power cable to plug into the wall. Everything sounds better when you’ve got the cleanest power possible running through yo... 
750$ Intel NUC vs $6000 Aurender N200: I don't hear the difference
 @mclinnguy, you needn’t go all crazy reclocking the signal from your router to your music server if you don’t need to. I put two relatively inexpensive network switches between my CAT6 router and my server, and it really took away any trace of di... 
750$ Intel NUC vs $6000 Aurender N200: I don't hear the difference
@essrand, you’re very welcome sir. I stream almost 100% of the time now because of the convenience factor. At 67yrs old I no longer wish to spend my free time going through my thousands of old scratched up LPs and CDs to find one particular album ... 
750$ Intel NUC vs $6000 Aurender N200: I don't hear the difference
@essrand, I'm extremely jealous of your Nagra Tube DAC sir. If I were you, I’d have as few powered boxes between my router and your DAC as possible. https://www.nagraaudio.com/product/tube-dac/    
USB to Dual Coax Bridge for Qutest DAC
@audphile1, I use a crappy Chord Hugo TT2 DAC with a bad Chord MScaler, a terrible Woo Audio WA22 hp amplifier, the worst Focal Utopia headphones, and four horrible old Bose 901 direct reflecting speakers. I’ve got thousands of CDs, LPs, reel to r... 
USB to Dual Coax Bridge for Qutest DAC
@audphile1, I love that you’re enjoying the Briscati M3. I think that it’s great when folks can find a piece of audio gear that increases their music listening experience.   
USB to Dual Coax Bridge for Qutest DAC
@audphile1, what was it about the M3 that you liked, and why did you move on from it? I’ve owned the Qutest and have had the Briscati in my system as a demo for comparisons to other DACs. I thought the M3 was okay, but I didn’t think it surpassed ... 
USB to Dual Coax Bridge for Qutest DAC
@drlou77, I had a Qutest before trading it for a TT2 because I really love the Chord sound signature. I also use an Audiowise SRC-DX between my music server and my Chord MScaler where the listening chain goes, music server > AQ Diamond USB >... 
Relationship between Ethernet Switch and SQ
@mathiasmingus, I run two fairly inexpensive network switches in cascade between my CAT6 router and my ENO Filter System AG before my always to be ridiculed and mocked on this forum with derision Roon Nucleus music server, where the switches are p... 
Mahler 8th Symphony
This new recording by the Minnesota Orchestra under the direction of Osmo Vanska of Mahler’s 8th should not be missed.
