    Thank you Puma Cat. I do primarily steaming and use a mesh network as my router is upstairs. I assume the EtherRegen will give improvements in this scenario as well.

    I think I will stay with the hard-drive directly connected to my X1. Sounds great, and much less complicated, and much less expensive, than a network connection. The only function of the network for me is to control the X1. That works fine with...

    Don't worry about it. I've used Shunyata Venom, Alpha, Sigma and Omega Ethernet cables with my EtherREGEN, and they're all superb within their respective price classes, and outperform all the other Ethernet cables I tested them against (including...

    Thanks for the advise Peter. I am using a Shunyata Sigma Ethernet cable, which I think is a Cat6, but I think is shielded? Hopefully someone on here can guide me.

    Hello Mr Mike.
    Sorry if I said something wrong ,since I'm new to this hobbies.

    Today I auditioned 30.2 with NAT SET monoblock. The voice was so full of body but I still miss some bass and I think it kinda rolled off in high. The equipment separation was good only some albums.

    Then I auditioned Diablo120 with their Mojos(different dealers). I'm amazed with the soundstage, image and how clean they produced them(is that mean they bright?), but instantly I miss the Midrange and full body voice feel of Harbeth and NAT.

    Will Diablo produce better midrange when pair with Harbeth??

    I still waiting to try Luxman next

    Thank You Sir.
