USB to Dual Coax Bridge for Qutest DAC
@txp1 I did not. I am still awaiting the delivery of the Audience Studio One USB cable.  I tested a sampler and had to return it. I just got a UPS Tracking # sent tonight, so I should have it very soon. Once I'm back on-line with streaming, I a...

@txp1 Thanks for sharing your story.  I am very interested in the SQ improvement you realized from upgrading your ethernet cable. My set up uses wifi to send the signal to a ASUS mesh system.  I am unable to run an ethernet cable from my router t...

Update:  After listening to the Audience Studio One USB cable with my Bricasti M3 for about a week, I decided to purchase it.  It’s way more money than I’ve ever spent on a cable, but my ears told me to go for it. The Bricasti/Studio One combinat... 
Bricasti M3 In the house
@garynospamm  Hello,  I just got my M3 about two weeks ago.  I use it mostly for streaming Qobuz and ripped CDs from my Innuos Zenith mk3 and Innuos Phoenix USB.     My unit has MDx 1.08 firmware.  I see you just updated your M3 to 1.14.  I’m cu...

@audphile1  The Cable Company is letting me borrow the Audience Cable for two weeks.  However, the 30 day clock is ticking on the DH Labs.  It expires on 2/9.  In essence, I have until next Friday to make my decision whether to purchase the Audie...

@audphile1 Yes, I replaced the fuse and it’s working fine.  Sounds great with the Bricasti.  200 hours puts me at next Tuesday.  Hopefully, I will hear a big improvement over the weekend. I heard from the seller over the weekend.  He was in the E...

@audphile1  Well, you haven't steered me wrong yet, so I just placed an order for the Audience Studio One USB cable.  It arrives tomorrow and I will begin breaking it in immediately.  How long should I give it before I do some critical listening?...

@audphile1 Yes, it does work.  Really sounds good coming from my noisy laptop.  Imagine how good it will sound with the streamer. Have a nice weekend.

@audphile1  You are correct sir.  In the absence of my streamer, I hooked my laptop and Qobuz up to the Bricasti tonight via the Mirage USB cable.  It sounds pretty, damn good. I contacted The Cable Company today.  I bought the Mirage from them.... 
USB to Dual Coax Bridge for Qutest DAC
@audphile1  Yeah, that sounds like a plan.  The seller sold me a great DAC for a great price.  Positive feedback warranted.  Done. I kept him apprised of the difficulties I was having getting the unit to operate.  I suggested that if the DAC nee...

@audphile1  Since my streamer may not be up for a few days (long story), I feel compelled to give the seller feedback asap. I'm not going post anything publicly, but will send him an email. IMO, he sold me a good DAC, at a fair price, but did n...

@audphile1 Thanks.  Couldn't have done it without you and others in this forum. Now onto streaming.  
USB to Dual Coax Bridge for Qutest DAC
@audphile1 BINGO!  My streamer is still down, but I bought a SPDIF cable and hooked it up as per your instructions.  Repeated steps, but this time I switched the input on the Bricasti to IN2.  Push play on my Oppo and, voila, Free Falling, by Tom ... 
USB to Dual Coax Bridge for Qutest DAC
@audphile1  Thank you for your continued support. The fuse on my Innuos Zenith mk3 blew when I rebooted it last night.  I have a bad back and replacing it is a big tricky for me. In the interim, I will buy an inexpensive coax cable from Amazon ... 
USB to Dual Coax Bridge for Qutest DAC
@audphile1  Hello.  It appears I blew a fuse when I rebooted my streamer.  I am going to replace it and try again. I bought this component on US Audio Mart.  The seller has been in business for 20 years with a Feedback Rating of 100% for 58 tran...
