  1. No, the phone charger or power bank can supply the power to the E30 dac as its designed to run from USB. The USB power from the laptop or PC is noticeably noisy so the E30 sounds a lot better from the independent power...... the reviewers commented.
  2. Reviews suggest the E30 sounds a lot better with clean power. Either a iPhone charger or phone power bank is a noticeable step up from the USBs on the PC or Laptop. Cheap to try.
  3. This dac has hi and low outputs. 2mv and 2.65mv I think. I found the hi output to work well plus the digital volume control on the dac is superior to most analogue attenuation. Pre amps provides additional inputs for future use, I had a couple over the years but I’m my case makes hardly any difference to the sound. You’d have to try it with system synergy in mind. I’m feeding a valve amp so results may different with solid state. Try it with and without one...... see for yourself. If you buy one second hand on SNA you can always sell at very little loss. I’m tempted to try a stereo coffee LDR as it has the potential to not adversely affect the signal ........ it’s all part of the journey in the end.
  4. I’ve been using a Mac mini and Audirvana for 7yrs. I find it simple and good sounding. A definite step up from streaming Spotify. I had a BS for a while but I preferred the Mac mini in the end, the BS didn’t bring anything extra to the table for me. I run Mac Mini > Dac> power amp. Ive heard Roon is the way to go with large databases. I only have around 500-600 gb and Audirvana deals with this ok. I create playlists in ITunes and play with Audirvana. I updated my 2011 i7 Mac mini to have 2x OWC 1tb SSDs and maxed the ram to 16gb a couple yes ago, it also runs cooler now with less fan noise. when the Mac falls over I’ll probably stick with a new Mac or may think about SOTA Ultra which I’ve been told is a decent step up........ and then maybe roon 😉
  5. Works fine for me. I have it feeding a Single input Weston topaz 120.
  6. Item: Pre amp with Pre out Price Range: $1500 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: looking to connect a dac and phono to a single input Weston KT120. The pre outs are to run Stereo Subs. valve or solid state. Remote volume preferred but not essential Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  7. Thanks , I’ll PM you
  8. I have 2 x Hypex Fusion FA501 plate amps. The fine print says these are not sealed and should be mounted in their own sealed enclosure inside the Sub. I was thinking of mounting them in some Fibox junction boxes but then thought why not have mounted in a beautiful timber box Plate size of the amps are 280mm long x 135mm wide x 60mm deep. They could be mounted side by side and preferably stand up. does any one know of a cabinet maker? Some sort of native timber would be perfect.
  9. Further information: 4 Speakon NL4FX connectors 4x 1/4” plugs on unterminated leads. 900mm long. 2x 1/4” splitter cables 1m long all unused.

  10. I like the idea of the Hypex Fusion amps and selling the Ncore Does the Mini DSP SHD allow analogue passthrough from the dac or are you reliant on the SHD dac?
  11. Further information: Absolutely incredible amp. Only a few months old. Built by 81Vintage The parts alone cost more than this. Its the genuine Hypex SMPS1200A700 https://www.hypex.nl/product/smps1200a700/137 (not the usual 400 most suppliers are using with the NC500 buildS 2 x Hypex NCore NC500 Modules + 1200-1500w PSU • SNR 135dB • Distortion: THD+N - - 0.001 % 20Hz • Frequency Response: 0 - 50k Hz +0/-3dB • Low Distortion: THD+N - - 0.001 % 20Hz • High Input Impedance 51K • Input Sensitivity 8ohm 2.52Vrms 10.24dBu • XLR Balanced Input • 26 dB Gain • Ultra High Damping Factor • High Current Output Capable of driving 2ohm for the most Demanding of Speakers. • 550W 2ohm • 700W 4ohm • 400W 8ohm • Frequency Response: 0 - 50k Hz +0/-3dB Going in a different direction so this and my DEXQ are up for sale.

  12. Further information: The is an amazing piece of Kit. Recently upgraded to the latest firmware. Not a mark on the front or back. A mild rub mark on the top where some rubber feet have dragged, possibly clean off but I didn’t bother as it was located in my rack. The remote is virtually unused. This was purchased to integrate dual subs with my mains. Alan from DEQX set it all up via teamviewer. Amazing service. I’m heading in another direction now so this and my equally incredible stereo Ncore 500 sub amp are on the move. Also included is the Microphone plus Mic stand and 5m XLR to help with room and speaker measurements.

  13. I have a mac mini playing into a Gieseler DAC then into a Weston topaz kt120...… sounds superb. I would like to add stereo subs to this and have bought 2x passive subs with a 2x 500NC Ncore amps. how can I add the necessary PEQ to the subs whilst leaving the mains alone with the DAC?
