  1. Initially I intend to use the Sonore connected to the router then 20mt fibre to something else yet to be determined at the other end then into the PP and then to the Weiss 301 and the 502DSP. Of course there will be possible permutations that will keep me occupied for awhile. John
  2. I am probably heading in a similar direction to you albeit with different components. I hope that the answer to the second dot point above is yes as I have ordered one. I will be interested in the answer to the last dot point of your 6 points above. John
  3. @Snoopy8 With the Renolabs FMC there can be different FMC modules. Renolabs said to me that. "FMC modules from startech too expensive." Nevertheless the Startech interests me. And then there as you say bold above plus the use of attenuators etc The whole matter of optic is a quandary or a rabbit warren. I have utilised at this time cheap bits and maybe just maybe there is a minor negative impact on dynamics. An important question is how far does one go to get the answer???? John
  4. @Chanh, I do not know the answer. However based upon my experience there can be a benefit linking switches together. Each switch can have slightly different beneficial out comes. Linking switches can result in a combination of the benefits which are better than each switch on its own. I have heard the Etheregen on it own and also connected to the Paul Pang. That was better then each on its own. My current setup is a Bonn N8 connected to Paul Pang quad. For awhile I a second N8. The benefit was not worth it extra cables. I am interested in having a switch with SFP connectiv
  5. I agree. Every aspect of the digital chain matters. A weak link can spoil the benefits of all the strong links. John
  6. Change is an interesting phenomenon. I am an avid user of Roon even though a streaming alternative that I have is superior to Roon Playback. The alternative does not have the usage features of Roon that I like. I am slightly disappointed with some of the changes in Roon and hope that over time there will be updates to improve things such as the background, the playing line at the bottom and the artists in circle shapes. I just do not like the circles in that context. My dislikes are definitely not the end of the world as it seems some of the changes are to some users. I
  7. A review that whilst it was subjective, it was thorough and informative, with no use of unnecessary emotive words that contrasts interestingly with the ASR linked above. Thanks for the link. Very useful. I like subjective. John
  8. Are you being serious or flippant with the use of the word ‘Objective”? John
  9. A strong twist will break the connection. Then you can remove Blutak with Blutak. Roll a fresh piece into a pea sized ball of Blutak. The just using the ball apply it slowly and lift the flattened piece bit by bit. It works for me. John
  10. The white screen gave me sunburn. It is now dark. John
  11. I did not like the White. It can be changed to Dark in the settings. I would prefer something more in between. A very minor matter though. John
  12. Hi Clive, As well as the switches it must be remembered that I would consider the Ethernet cables also provided a benefit. There are many different switches out there and more new ones coming all the time at different price points. I enjoyed the hospitality and the camaraderie on the afternoon. Thanks John
  13. My comments on the second visit to listen to @Stereophilus's yesterday. John
  14. I have been strongly discouraged. I think somebody in Sydney tried three together. John
