  1. Oh yeah... you haven’t heard my Technics SP10 mk3 table with Kuzma arm and Accuphase cart? With the right records, I often question myself “Why the heck am I bothering with Digital?” 😂 should come for an audition @a.dent!
  2. It was a fun session last time round. Few years back now I think when we did this shootout... The findings was clear by the majority, yourself included? Worth my last iteration recently, I think this time round will be more so interesting.... Definitely a fun session bounce to be for all to enjoy... A gtg at yours or mine? 🥳
  3. Records showed I tend to make better assessment/judgement(s) when accompany by the nice good Red. On a serious note - This combo is no kidding..., hey!. Once completed, I will share a Uptone JS-2 powesupply clone that you can diy for approx $350, pending parts selection...
  4. Spending my Christmas break with this project... dual pc setup. Control-PC with only Roon via WS2019 core mode ethernet to Audio-PC with only HQ-Player and my Accuphase DC-950 driver, operates from RAMDisk WS2019 core mode. will post the hardwares infor once I am happy with the listening outcome.
  5. Been putting together an audio server all morning, a very sluggish progress... I hope this will speed it up somewhat? 😅
  6. I'll take it if you post to Perth. Cheers.
  7. I had a listen to my trail server from the entire OS loaded into RAM. The motherboard has everything disable including the video output. PCIe network card and PCIe usb card are the only two attached and operational. Operating from RAMDisk was a significant step up on SQ and I highly recommend you to give it a go. Another step up was to disable the video output via bios. Note - you need to ensure that your sever is boot up consistently prior doing the disabling the video output. Another significant SQ improvement without damaging your bank account. When I find sometime this festive break, will write up a manual on how to achieve a more refined high-end server at low-end diy investment.
  8. Finally I managed to get Windows Server 2019 boot from RAM. The initial booting and loading into ram takes several minutes. A good working progress for software part. Next is to complete the linear PSU then a gtg one Sunday?! 🥳
  9. damn it... Me always been late to this.... Dont people have a weekday job? Goshhhh
  10. It is rather interesting though..., I had goosebumps last-night when doing the critical listening. I pick up audible stage/recording nuisances, those were not previously there. I went back and forth to validate my observations and positively smiling within that i rediscover the musics again...., Bl00dyH3ll. 😍 For me, my system became much more revealing and resolute after 9.30pm every night. Therefore, I usually do my critical listening to my own setup often at 10.30pm in the evening. Cant wait to complete the rest.....
  11. Will do the sweeps once I get sometime. Another Sunday project into the list. As for the ceiling, there were panels with double side tape..., will do em proper after the rear wall is done. Another Sunday it will be.
  12. Finally had these bad boys installed with laser precision with great success. A very pleasing outcome for me with this investment. I tried doing dual subs And found bass notes were not easy to control or achieve a desired outcome. Question is why without dual subs, and these panels made sound better bass resolutions! Hmmmm...! Rear wall will be next Sunday Project. Will keep you posted if there is any interest? 😁
  13. not sure about the ram is custom built. I for sure knew that they did is no speciality but load up from ramdisk. Infor from JPlay forum. see photo. As for PSU, you will be laughing your gut off when found its lid opened.... Actually you will be pretty p!ssed if you paying for it. Same psu in a server Sold by Phil Audio optimiser for $US5k. yes - ECC Ram appears abit more organic sounding... other than that..., remains questionable!
  14. Cheers! I am still with two minds about this. I think for the benefit of the doubt, I will give both a chance then decide by ears as humanly possibly can. Ultimately, I provision no M.2 SSD attached. Bios will load the image into Ramdisk via usb3.1 every time the audiopc is turning on. This will also to eliminate built up in the registry, temporary catches...., for which can also influenced the SQ performance. For those unsure, try to do a fresh install every now and then on your audio pc, you will be glad to know (based on my personal experiences only) that SQ can improve noticeable every time you reinstall fresh OS again... Don't take my words for it, give it a go and do the evaluations yourself. Communications between Roon server to audiopc is direct Ethernet protocol. Each pc is doing it own task without interfering another.
