    Two Logitech Transporter SE's (NO KNOB) for sale

    In a strange twist of events I decided to keep my Transporters. (Nobody contacted me, so no disappointments)

    I was tempted ... but shipping to UK was a barrier for me.

    So far I can't find anything that sounds better than the Transporter. I thought I had it this time. It was an RME ADI-2 DAC. I loved this DAC and some how tricked myself into thinking it sounded better. (Probably a bias thing). So after my comparisons I boxed up the Transporters and put them on ebay. A day later I sat down and listened to my nice new DAC and BOOM...something wasn't right. Everything sounded clinical. I kept turning up the sound but everything sounded boomy and fatiguing. (Cymbals, for example, were very bright).

    So I ran to one of my boxed Transporters and dug it out, reinstalled LMS and played the same tracks and everything sounded right again. The problem with the RME is it has very poor midrange, which is why I had the urge to keep turning it up higher than I normally play music. (Yes, RME/Transporter were level matched). I'm not the first one to report this with regards to the RME.

    Anyway, I have no problem with the Squeezebox platform or the Transporter but I do almost all my listening with headphones now and would prefer a USB DAC setup. But as long as the Transporter keeps blowing away the other DAC's I try, I will keep it. (And the backup)

    I'm assuming the RME ADI-2 DAC is not also a streamer. So what would you use as the streamer in place of the Transporter? A TOUCH or rPi with Squeezelite or ????. Some people use the Transporter but then connect it digitally to another DAC.

    Migrating to a USB DAC has proved difficult in the SQ department so I'll be streaming with the Transporter for the foreseeable future.

    But what were you going to use to stream to the USB DAC?

    I just connect my PC to the USB DAC. That's what I use to control the TP as well. I"m just an old fashioned guy

    aha. So the PC is the streamer.
