Anyone tried fiber into EtherRegen SFP?
That is true and an important point. I use optical as my router is 100+ ft from the ER.  I needed to try and consult with people on several different converters prior to settling.  Difference in SQ was obvious.

Room acoustics
Interesting topic.  I’ve seen people experiment with all kinds of instruments in the room, including placing violins / acoustic guitars and other string instruments on the front wall.  Obviously some methods are more expensive than others, kinda d... 
Best Server To Run Roon Core
Glad to hear. That’s an excellent option to start with. Works for me wonderfully. I have tried a couple of Linear Power Supplies (LPS) and other tweaks with my NUC and have been really impressed with even the USB connection SQ to the DAC The Fara...

JL Audio CR-1 Crossover
One thing that might be worth mentioning about the CR-1 are the ground lifting switches in the back.  Their position matters, especially when using RCA ICs.  Owner should definitely test if grounded or floating sounds best to them.

JL Audio CR-1 Crossover
hi @ozzy  90Hz is what JL recommends.  Also, I tried several from 70hz to 110 and did not like other x-over frequencies any better. Regardless if it's 80 or 90,  I believe the most important part is to find the right phasing on each sub.  That's ... 
JL Audio CR-1 Crossover
@ozzy - I cross over at 90 HZ with CR-1  
JL Audio CR-1 Crossover
The CR-1 has been a very impactful addition to my system for 2 years now. The main improvement was unexpected; the speaker's (high frequency and midrange) output became clearer. JL explained that it’s due to the speakers being alleviated from the ...
