I am currently using the USB input of the DS with an Uptone ISO Regen powered by a LPS 1.2.
I was also using an old Micromega CD transport to the SPDIF coaxial input of the DS with an iFi SPDIF iPurifier powered by a LPS 1.2.
I recently upgraded to an old Audiomeca Mephisto transport which sounds good even without the iFi SPDIF iPurifier.
I am wondering if there are any merits to using a DDC/ reclocker like the Hermes to replace all these “cleaners” and their power supplies and utilise the I2S input of the DS.
Specifically, will the Mephisto benefit from the reclocking of the Hermes?
Also, will the Hermes result in better sound than the Uptone ISO Regen?
Your post seems to suggest you had good results with the Hermes. Have you any prior experience with the ISO Regen and if so, how do they compare?
