‘Limit to your love’ by James Blake today. It’s a good test to see if your speakers can even play it properly.

Nice song, thanks.

@Snoopy8, following your footsteps, got the Phantom golds from classifieds.. using it in my study and enjoying it. Especially the bass in low volumes. Love it..!

That makes at least 4 of us! 👍 

 

Don't know how big your study is, but the Golds must thump!  

 

Any before and after pictures?

@frednork has an interesting option for using Roon DSP with the Phantoms.  Note that the Phantoms are Roon Tested which means a Roon end point is required. The one box solution below  is one possibility

 

frednork, I assume that Roon server and end point in same box will impact audio quality?  Been reading that the Roon end point is critical for quality and typically has a linear power supply, and often does not have an optical output.  I suspect it will be better wth a 2 box solution?

-------

I have been investigating various room correction hardware options including using dual subs.  Will post about the various options soon.

Yes, as usual the more boxes the better applies according to common understanding. I guess that this solution is scalable and offcourse you can hang off as many extra doodads and de crapifiers as you want.

 

The theory goes that very busy cpus and drives will inject more noise and jitter into the system so a lot of people isolate power supplies for the motherboard , drive , and usb/optical card. 

 

I havent seen many people discuss the purification of an optical connection, its mostly usb which you are very familiar with.

 

Its not difficult to add an extra box and the processing demands for a "renderer" box is very low so atoms or even arm processors may work better here so high current power supplies and big boxes may not be required . 

 

Hardware is one part, software and operating system may give different results also. Windows, linux, snakeoil. dietpi etc. 

 

I expect it is possible to achieve good levels of fidelity even with one box and then its just how much more money do you want to throw at it.

 

Also happy to demo a 2 box solution as my renderer has an optical out.

      Item: White Devialet Phantom - 1200 Watts - 25KHz to 16Hz - 101dB + Official Cocoon Case
      Location: Perth, Western Australia (Cockburn, Kwinana, Rockingham area)
      Price: AUD$3050 for Phantom and Cocoon Case (Can Negotiate)
       
      Item Condition: Perfect condition with no dents, marks, or scratches whatsoever. Is four months old now, has not been moved since unboxing. Works perfectly and includes all the original packaging and boxes, including shipping box.
       
      Reason for selling: I am moving countries and can not take this with me as much as I'd like to. I have taken a Phantom with me in the past for a long term stay away and it got damaged so Devialet replaced it for me with a brand new one, I don't want to take that risk again of it getting broken so it's best to just sell it.
       
      Payment Method: Pickup/Drop-off within W.A. - Cash
      Extra Info: I am willing to either have you pick it up, or I'll drop it off but I am looking to sell exclusively within Western Australia. This unit uses the newest DSP (the ADH2 chip) and also has the AirPlay hardware which older ones don't. The unit is still covered under Consumer Law within Australia.
