Thanks Roy. I think the problem is due to the Unix OS used in both the Microrendu and SMS-200. They both do it when used as an NAA feeding this DAC. Hopefully the OS will get patched eventually. The DAC is really sounding nice. I'm using the Brimar CV4033 and a Mullard Gz34.
Ah that's too bad. I just got my sms200. I wonder if the play silence at startup for hardware syncronization option in JRiver would have any effect on the pops. HQPlayer is the problem for me.
Roy, the new SMS-200 firmware fixed the pop. Yahoo!
New rectifier for my MP-D2. The Mighty USAF 596. I like the Dr. Frankenstein's lab look of this toob. Coke bottle thick glass built to withstand nuclear blast. Much larger than my RCA 5AR4. I'm really having fun rolling tubes in this DAC! Sounds high end with no mods. Very high resolution with analog flavor. Will do native DSD if you want.
MichaelI am still using mine everyday while a unit costing three times as much sits on the sidelines and the Aqua La Voce is a great DAC in it's own right. This is an impressive feat IMO. Won't fit in your suitcase though like the IDA-8.
Hey, guys.Did all you M2-D2 owners suddenly fall into musical nirvana and stop feeling the urge to post about your experiences/impressions with this DAC? C'mon already. Gimme something to read, please!
It will fit very comfortably inside my carry-on polycarbonate suitcase encased in a 2" thick closed cell foam cocoon. Both my Gustard DAC and my D Sachs preamp were transported in this suitcase. IMichael
They let you transport equipment on the plane? Don't they think it's some type of explosive device?
I'm still here . Still have the MP-D2 and enjoying my tube rolling adventures.Recently, I rolled in a pair of platinum/cryoed Matsushita 7DJ8's. They replaced the platinum/cryoed EH 6H30Pi's. The Matsu's are more balanced with less emphasize on the ends of the sound spectrum. They come across as juicier and thicker but are equally detailed. I'm very happy with them. Only about 30 hours on them so I'll hear if they improve more with age but I like them and may order a backup pair. Actually, they sounded very nice after just a few hours of burn-in. Liquid and buttery would describe their SQ. They seem to occupy the midpoint between the 6H30pi's and the Amperex Orange globes in flavor. One concern with my particular Amperex's is that they were a *itch to remove from the sockets. IMO the most important factor in finding your perfect tube is system synergy.The MP-D2 is very sensitive to tube rolling so its fun to have a change of pace every now and then. Concerning the path to audio nirvana, I don't think I'll ever achieve that state of grace. Audionervosa is an incurable disease.
