  1. Just did an update....now the network drive is not mounted.....so no music visible. I can't see a way of mounting the drive in Volumio options? Have tried adding it as a new drive, but still comes up as "unmounted". What am I missing/ doing wrong? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Still listening......sounds pretty darn good to me so far[emoji106]....very crisp, clear & detailed sound. I'm using Volumio....I notice you use Roon....is there much difference between them? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Got it up and running[emoji16]......now for some listening tests.... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. "mwhouston" Thanks for all your advice! Will make up the box and mount everything before powering up......probably tomorrow. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. This photo shows connections as I understand them to be. Power in to filter not shown as yet, but to go to the two pins at bottom of filter with earth to middle pin on topside. Does this look ok to you? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Yes, as mentioned I am a novice.....but I wasn't going to plug this into anything without getting it reviewed...appreciate your frank advice. It will all be housed in a custom made box before being used. A couple of final questions....do I need to unwrap the transformers before fixing them? Should I seperate the trannies and or dac board by any specific distances? Thanks for your advice[emoji4] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Ok, got that[emoji106]. Does it matter which sides the red & orange do to? Am I correct in assuming on the 9v tranni the orange and yellow go to one of the 9v inputs and red and black go to the other 9v input? Can the blue wires to the filter be paired any way? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Is this roughly correct?[emoji848]......not sure which colour wires go where on the DAC connection? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Not sure what you mean? Side of the trannie says...."RED-BLACK+YELLOW-ORG" Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. Correction....wiring diagram Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I am a newbie at this, so please excuse my further questions.... Am I correct in assuming that the blue wires from the trannies go to the outer two pins on the Filter? I'm assuming the black, red, yellow ,orange wires on the trannies are what you are calling secondary's? Don't know what you mean by the centre tap of the 15v tranni? Given there are 4 wires coming out of it and only three connections on the DAC board I assume one wire is not used? I'll try drawing a warning diagram of my understanding so far...

  12. Ok, so I've got the parts....are you able to help me out with some advice on how to wire all this up? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Are you able to give me the details of the trannies you use...or a photo? Don't want to risk buying the wrong type and blow the dac up[emoji53] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  14. The AK4495+XMOS DAC arrived today....no instructions....I notice there are three power inputs, 2x9V & 1x15V. Do all three need power? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I couldn't seem to get the HDMI audio output to work? I did select it in the Playback Options menu under the Audio Output sub menu. Is this the "MPD" settings that you are referring too? Can't find that reference in the Menu? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
