    Hi Guys, Correct, they're a little complicated & do require power (& some people use a LPS on the 2nd MC) but I have noticed a small gain in SQ. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hi Guys, This is the optical patch that I bought that works well with the TP Link MC110cs Media Converters (they need to be single mode, SC-SC connectors OS1 or OS2) https://www.4cabling.com.au/3m-sc-sc-os1-singlemode-fibre-optic-patch-lead.html Media Converters http://www.tp-link.com/us/products/details/cat-43_MC110CS.html

    Thanks for the link, I'll have a flick through later today. As I said I'm happy enough with my set up & now that I've got my media converters to work I'm comfortable that I've isolated most network noise from entering my DSJ bridge but I'm not convinced it's best with both core & library sitting on my iMac hence in the interest in either a NUC or similar for the Core & NAS/ big HD for my library seperate to our home iMac. The MC's I use are the TP Link MC110 from memory (can't use 1Gb with DSJ), I can't remember the details of the patch as I bought x3 before I bought one that worked! Triple check before buying!

    Great thread guys, very interesting read. I'm currently running my Roon Core & library on my 2013 iMac which resides the other side of my house. I've had Cat5 installed & I have a wall plate in my av room. From the wall plate I have 3mtr Cat6 into a switch > short cat6 > media converter > optical patch > media converter > cat6 into my PS Audio DSJnr. I'm quite happy with my SQ although I think my CD player sounds slightly "richer". The main issue/concern I have is having to have my iMac on to access Roon & all my music on the same system so I've thinking what are my next steps in terms of access, back up & any improvements in SQ? The 1st thing I thought of was moving the core closer to my av room & taking off the home computer which will reduce the length of unshielded Cat5 & either introduce a NAS with a Roon core or a Roon core on a NUC +/- NAS or external HDD. Any suggestions? I'm not that "techy" which has put me off a NAS but they seemed to becoming more & more user friendly. Cheers Matt PS - one question about the NUC, I assume it's either wireless or do you connect via a switch & then onto your DAC via Ethernet? It only has X1 LAN port?

  8. Hi Everyone, Thanks for the interest but all speakers have now been sold. Cheers Matt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi All, I'll make a call tomorrow whether I split these speakers are sell as a package which I've offered to a buyer for $900 for the lot...anyone increase that price & all 5.1 speakers are yours. Cheers Matt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Hi Guys, I've had numerous enquires for some or all of these speakers; I'll put up some new photos tonight but everything is still FS. Cheers Matt Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
