    Thanks,

    Yes it is the Extreme. Ethernet from the modem to Airport Extreme and ethernet back to the switch. Good idea on the Jameco..see if it makes a difference before going hog wild on pricey LPS's. The one negative of networking audio is the myriad of power supplies. A tangled web!
    Thanks

    I can't explain it There are some differences in cable dressing and I plugged the Gigafoil into a different place in the power strip.
    Frustrating right? I have been eyeing better switches...
    I do have a battery supply ready for the gigafoil....just waiting on the correct cable..no idea if it will make a difference

    I just had Mike order a Keces P3 LPS for the Gigafoil. i should probably leave well enough alone but I'm a longtime member of what Nelson Pass called the Audiophile lunatic fringe. I'll get a new device and sit and listen to see how it sounds with the the best recorded tracks I have. Once I've done that I'll go back to listening to my favorite music that was recorded in the 30's and 40's. When that happens, the convenience of the Naim Nova trumps the magnificent sound of the Lumin X1 in importance.

    You will want to consider upgrading the AC and DC cable(s) on the P3.

    Ghent is an excellent source and starting at $45.00 for an Oyaide cable and termination you’ll see why.

    Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out. I had planned to use a spare LFD PC but hadn't thought about the DC cable.

    Could you tell me which specific Ghent DC cable I'll need to connect the Keces P3 with the Gigafoil. Does the Gigafoil take a 2.1? What about the Keces?

    Thanks..

    Is this the cable I need to connect the Keces P3 to the Gigafoil?

    Hello

    Keces P3 is 2.5MM to Gigafoil 2.5MM, if you get 2.1 you will need to use the included Keces adapter:

    I started with:

    DC-4S6G - 1M $45.00 - This adds OFC Copper for a $6.00 more

    Moved to:

    DC-GAC4 - Gotham - 1M $85.00 OFC, nicely shielded

    And would consider:

    DC-7N16C - Solid Core, 1M $139.00

    So they are both 2.5. That was actually my question. I'll have a look at what you bought.
    Thanks
