You are quite the bargain hunter lately! BJC makes nice quality stuff. I have one of their cables.


Hi Nick,

Yeah. Can't spring for the higher priced coax brands yet.  I am turning into Audionervosa's version of "Cheapaudio Man" from YouTube  :lol: By the way, I forgot what you use to power your Auralic and Zen with. Was it one of Auralic's LPSUs?

Paul,

For the Auralic, I used a 15v from Mojo Audio and I think for the Zen as well as it had a 9-15v acceptable range. I don’t think I have the Mojo anymore, but might have another one you might be able to use. What’s the fixed or adjustable range on yours?

Hi Nick,

I think it is 5v. I'll check.

Update!

Finally pulled the trigger on the 'spectrum analyzer' display I've been wanting to try.




Got an upgraded LPSU for the streamer, coax upgraded from Belden/BJC to Geistnote Apogee Wyde Eye and Oyaide Silver.

The braided cable dc cable is a guitar effects cable also from Oyaide.







Great fun! The best upgrade was the light display!

Very nice, Paul! I saw the spectrum analyzer photo and for a very brief moment, had a 60's Haight-Ashbury kinda flashback. Whew...it's gone now 😆  Have fun and enjoy!

It's the Summer of Love!

It brought me flashbacks to my 80s Sony mini system with the graphic equalizer and led display.
