A little update. Today I made a bracket to properly support the regen. I have always found good results since I installed it to my system, but a properly supported regen floored me. This must be the reason why it got so much rave reviews.
Music just got more engaging with a wider sound stage, it improved on almost all frequencies be high or low.
Highly suggested.
picture naman dyan sir!!!

Is the support more of an isolation?

Nothing fancy, just a piece of plywood. Made it about a millimeter higher than its unsupported height.

A good but not too expensive USB cable for your Uptone Regen:  Curious Cable

Today I removed my Regen in anticipation for an incoming RUR (w4s Recovery Usb Reclocker). I never felt any harshness in my system... until today :(
I guess it is something you never knew you have until you lose it... that is what the Regen did in my system and I hope the RUR can rival it and maybe surpass what the regen was able to do....

I know some actually daisy chains these with the rur or multiple regens. I had to make room for the RUR purchase brader for a reasonable excuse to the boss... :) you know.... Teka, maybe you don't since you need no approval. Heheheh. In that case, congrats. Hahahaha

With the Regen in the chain, are you still able to set the audio output using kernel streaming?  I presume you are still using JRiver.

I never used kernel streaming brader, always set using ASIO....

I have a similar device iPurifier2 from iFi...I thought these usb gadgets were snake oil..I tried it and indeed I heard a difference especially on the low freq..maybe due to the lowering of noise floor or what..
