    I have the “Pro” audio versions under my speakers. They are very effective.

    Use the same ones (I think) them under my PS Audio electronics Kev,
    very very effective, and not expensive either.

    Been mightily impressed with the Herbies decouplers under my speakers, definitely hearing more of what the speakers can do, being better isolated from the floor.

    Got myself another set for under the hifi rack, just as another tweak.

    Fitted them this morning, a real ballache, as I had to dismantle the whole system and clear the rack, so I could lift it up to fit the decouplers under the rack spikes.
    Gave me a change to clean it and better dress the cables, so worth the time.
    Rack can slide on carpet now, as an unexpected bonus I was able to nudge it along the wall to better fit between the speakers as well.

    Don't have a Dac just now,
    upgrade work on it is kicking off Monday, so not fussed about sound quality just now.
    Playing music through the Sony telly is actually pretty good, never really listened to it before.





    Raises the rack height up a little bit, actually prefer it a bit higher.

    All good.
    Will get Dac back next week so will plumb it all in hear how it sounds with latest round of upgrades 'n tweaks.

    A completely different sounding Dac now,
    Seriously Impressive.
    wow.

    Long burn in time for these Transformers, so expecting the usual highs and lows.
    Been listening to music through the telly for the last few weeks, so I'll survive.

    The external Farad power supply feeds the Dac's analogue output board, and just upgraded the output transformers on it, so D/A conversion is maxed out.

    Old and the new Transformers




    Tech spec wise, these are MUCH better, but more importantly they are the exact ones the Dac's designer Ted Smith wanted for the Dacs initial release, but BOM costs knocked that back.

    The one's I upgraded to are the same as the ones being used in the MKII version of the Directstream,
    Nice to hear, speaks to their quality.

    That's Digital done aside PS Audio's new 'Airlens' streamer when it comes out.

    Enjoyed playing vinyl when my Dac was away,
    but its an ex demo cart that's fitted to the P10 whilst my own is back at Rega HQ getting rebuilt.
    Right now the Digital is sounding better than my P10.


    Back to the music...
