  1. I'm assuming that a cold weather amp only? You know as you can heat the whole house with it GLWTS
  2. Legendary as usual Bill ... your generosity has issues though. In the case of me I have to buy another DAC to use the spare set of RCA interconnects
  3. I have the same XSP-1 Gen 2 ... wonderful pre amp. One of the better additions to my HT system allowing for wonderful 2 channel sound direct from my Oppo 203. Excellent bang for buck.
  4. Why did this have to appear when I’m on holidays in an essentially no mobile reception area?
  5. The database is on an SSD ... shared folder mounted exclusively on an external USB3 SSD.. you are correct though that the occasional hiccups occur. Not often but just enough to be annoying. I have too much material to consider losing an internal drive on a cost basis of replacing say 4Tb drives with three 6TB or greater drives. Let alone the rebuild time to accomplish the transition. The best solution is to move Roon to a headless NUC which will, eventually, also fulfil direct USB Audio to DAC.

  8. This is a moment I hate being Westsurf and not “Eastsurf”.
  9. This amp would make many “audiophile” amps look like the poor cousin.
  10. Had the pleasure of running a PA for a well known Australian pub. They had a bank of these to drive the PA. They have serious grunt. Exceptional dynamics. A never say die sort of amp. Would drive any speaker without breaking a sweat. GLWTS
