    Some do not, the pair of 1st run Sigma V2 Clock50 I have do not. That was later remedied I am told. The destination end CMode module has a serial number stamped into the housing on the lower portion. Caelin will confirm. Sent from my SM-G975U...

    Kingrex.....Your comment regarding aftermarket racks is spot on. When I moved into my present listening room I bought a rack with one kind of wood and metal threaded rods. The upper midrange glare from that rack drove me nuts. My current rack has...

    Check on the Cmode module itself, it may indicate the direction of installation. For example, the directionality of the new Alpha V2 IC is indicated on the TAP module with a set of arrows.

    As nice as it looks, I won’t be getting one. There is no way I’m parting ways with my MBL 6010D Pre. But, I can see the value for those that wish to skip a pre and go directly to amps.

    Hi, Just received a clock V2, there does not look to have any direction arrows. Are all the signal cables non directional as the 2 modules are exactly at the same position unlike the V1?

    No. But for arguments sake, what would you use for cables? Outdoor lighting cable? Lamp cord? The entire level of the system went up significantly with this Alpha v2 loom.
