  1. Border Patrol DAC

    I have one. I'm not good as describing what I hear from my audio gear but as a vinyl (and valve) aficionado I like my digital to be as close to what I hear from analog as possible. I bought the Border Patrol unheard largely because of Border Patrol's (and its designer's reputation). It complements an Audio Note 2.1X Signature DAC, which does not have the USB input I need and which the BP does have. To my ears both DACs sound somewhat similar. Be aware that DSD and the outer reaches of hi-res are not available on the BP. For my own listening that limitation is not a problem. btw I bought the SE version, USB with SPDIF.
  2. The skipping behaviour suggests that the DAC has lost synchronisation with the Antipodes. This may be performance-related or firmware-related. You might power off the DX and the DAC, disconnect/reconnect the USB cable, power on the DX, power on the DAC, and then test again with Roon. The Roon Ready and Roon Server diagnostics logs, viewable from the Antipodes GUI, are also a source of useful information.
  3. Joe, Please contact [email protected] re this problem so we can have a look. Tony
  4. Chaotic as ever ...
  5. WTB: Nice Preamp.

    The just-listed Shindo Aurieges Line pre would be an excellent choice ... IMHO of course!
  6. Negotiation skills 101

    You might suggest that men have a lower life expectancy than women and you therefore have to spend at a higher rate per annum to ensure it evens out in the end?
  7. I use a step-down with my ex-Japan Sun SV-2A3 amp. Toei Henseki tx 220-240V/100VA -> 100V. Never had any reason to think that it degrades the sound and totally reliable.
  8. Show us your Turntables!!!

    It should have my ebony Siggwan for additional blackness! However I do like the figure on the one that you have.
  9. Show us your Turntables!!!

    Most impressed by your 401 refurbishment, having done a few myself. Quite different to others I have seen. A neat idea to have the control knob inserts painted black and was the area around the 'GARRARD 401' logo on on the fascia also painted black? Is the chassis painted gloss black - can't quite tell from the picture? And the plinth is very striking. Please accept my compliments!
  10. Hi Evil, I tried connecting my black to the iPod Classic but it doesn't work .... not able to power the Dragonfly
  11. Very nice turntable ... but I think it's a MKI from the logo on the fascia. GLWTS.
  12. Item: Curious Cable - standard USB A -> USB B Price Range: Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: 2.0 metre required Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  13. WTB: First Watt J2

    If no J2 available there is an M2 here, slightly offshore: http://www.trademe.co.nz/electronics-photography/home-audio/amplifiers-tuners/auction-1346151557.htm
  14. In Search of a New Wand

    I owned one of the first Wand Plus 12' tone arms. Very happy with it, a very good arm and, as remarked, great after-sales service. Simon is continually enhancing his tone arms and frequently the upgrades can be retro-fitted. Thoroughly recommended. I have recently sold the 301/Wand combination with great reluctance - too many turntables
  15. A Behringer UCA-222 will do it for you: https://www.storedj.com.au/behringer-u-control-uca222-usb-audio-interface It won't do hi-res but handles 16-bit 44.1 flac fine. And it doesn't need a separate power supply.
