  • I received some more stuff from TeraDak. Figure 43. The second DC-30 linear power supply came with the wrong DC power cable. This is the correct cable. Figure 44. Both of my DC-30 LPSs came with faceplates with misspellings and other error…
  • Digital signals are just a highly specialized type of analog signal. Digital signals are not susceptible to many of the audible noise and distortion issues of pure analog signals, but they have their own signal integrity issues, particularly when it…
  • Oh, OK. I'm not familiar with Chromecast stuff at all.

  • My results were outstanding, in both picture quality improvements and sound quality improvements. I'll let the new power supply run in for a couple of weeks before I post my full review. Installation was easy. My immediate results were: 1. …
  • The replacement faceplate for my first TeraDak DC-30 power supply has been received and installed. I had to desolder/resolder four wires in order to remove the old faceplate. I am still waiting on the replacement faceplate for the second DC-30. …
  • I ordered a customized version of this LPS: http://teradak.com/products/75.html Mine will have a 150 watt transformer and 4-pin DC power cable providing two 12V 6.25A sources to the NAS. Cost was $317, which is close to 80% of the retail price…
  • Not interested in Roon at all.
  • @Moose68Bash Plugging the DS718+ NAS into the wall resulted in a small loss of clarity, detail, image weight and tactile sensation. The loses were particularly evident in the bass. Whether the NAS was fed from the wall or from regenerated AC, I d…
  • OK, I was wondering if you were using it as a digital interconnect or as a LAN cable. I would be using them as LAN cables, one between my Bryston BDP-3 digital player and a wireless access point and the other between my two channel system NAS and th…

  • I'd like to try the Acoustic Revive cable, but the cable does not appear to be easily sourced. On Amazon it comes with very high shipping costs. For example, an Amazon purchase comes with $42 a shipping cost and a similar cost if I return it. On eBa…

  • I installed the new TeraDak LPS in my system at work. I use the same brand and model of external hard drive enclosure as at home (Rosewill Armer RX304), but the hard drive is different: 3.5" Western Digital Black 6 TB at home, 2.5" Seagate 5 TB at w…
  • Just now seeing this. Glad everything with the procedure went better than expected. Wishing you a better than expected recovery.
  • I received a second DC-30 linear power supply today and it has face plate label errors also, plus, they sent me a DC cable with the wrong size DC power plug! The second LPS is for the hard drive enclosure in my stereo system at work. Figure 37.…

  • @KennethSwauger I am just now seeing this. Thanks for everything over the years. I can definitely relate to wanting to step away from a management role. I am glad you will still be around...and hopefully provide some mentorship for the incomin…
  • TeraDak said there is no difference between a DC-30 and DC-30W. They did not explain why some units have the "W" designation and some don't. They are going to send me a replacement faceplate.
  • The entire word "ON" is upside down.
