  1. Looking to try an Sbooster Linear Power Supply with my Auralic Aries Femto streamer so needs to be the 15-16V model. Please let me know if you have one or see one for sale. Many thanks, Stef
  2. For you, of course. Having witnessed your heroic Jolida match-making for ChemMan, how could I not? PM me your address and I'll get it packed up. Work is very busy so it might be the weekend before I can get it sent off.
  3. Free to a good home (doesn't even have to be a good home). Target turntable shelf that has seen better days - see photos. Perfect for a garden/garage/prison cell system. I'm assuming that no one will want it but I'm listing it here just in case and to try to give some meaning to the fact that I've moved it from house to house with me for the last 20 years! Collection from Thirsk.
  4. Looking for a Sonicweld Diverter USB to SPDIF converter. Can be the original or HR version. Please let me know if you have one or see one for sale. Thanks, Stef
  5. I'm looking for an Audiophilleo USB to S/PDIF converter. Can be the Audiophilleo1 or Audiophilleo2 and either mark 1 or 2 but must have the Purepower power supply. Please let me know if you have one you are willing to sell. Many thanks, Stef
  6. Not particularly useful because I've never experienced anything else in terms of bespoke streamers but another vote for Auralic here. First the Aries Mini and the the Aries Femto. Sounds fantastic, great app and zero wireless network issues, both for streaming and iDevice-streamer communication. This is the context of a wifi network at home that would cause the connection issues between Audirvana running on a Macbook and the Audirvarna app.
  7. There’s not a lot between the Eitr and the Legato and it’s quite possible that you would prefer the Eitr anyway. The big gap was between the V-Link and the other two..
  8. I've done a bit of experimenting with USB to SPDIF converters and have tried: MF V-Link (the original model) Schiit Eitr AR-T Legato Initially, this was all to handle data from a Mac running Audirvana. All of these were a vast improvement on the direct usb in to the DACs I have/had with that input - Jolida FX II, Audio-GD NFB-2 and Topping D50S (I no longer have the latter, didn't like it). The Eitr is good but the Legato was the best, even though it is limited to 16/44.1. There is something about it that just sounds right. I recently bought an Auralic Aries Femto streamer and with it's dual femto clocks I thought I would no longer need the Legato (i.e. using coaxial out of the Aries). I was wrong and everything still sounds better with the Legato in the chain, regardless of bit depth/sample rates. This has convinced me that it's worth putting some effort into making sure the signal into the DAC is in good shape. That's a business that can get expensive (reclockers and so forth) but I'm intrigued by it.
  9. Cable received, many thanks for posting so quickly Chris. BW, Stef
  10. Having seen Mark’s lovely Kondo-related photos -BUMP! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken. In the context of debates like this, that's all I ask.
  12. Yes, kicking myself - they we only 20 miles away! I've also seem your thread about building some AN-Es. I would certainly be thinking about doing something similar if I had the skills..
  13. Hello everyone, Looking for a pair of Audio Note AN-Js or AN-Es, preferably with matching stands. Please let me know if you have any to sell or see any available. Many thanks, Stef
