The Great White Mini Buss!
« on: November 23, 2021, 06:05:00 PM »
Look at what the postman delivered today!



Retiring my cheapo Emotiva power strip (in the background).



Matches my medical isolation transformer/step-up down transformer.



Side-by-side with the DigiBuss. Look at all that dust!



NCF goodness! Wow!

Plugged the tv and cable box in to test and burn it in while at the office. The picture was so much sharper watching an Amazon Prime stream! I kid you not, I thought I was imagining things until I removed it and the grainy, pixelated images returned!  8)

I'll report again after a full burn in.

That looks great, Paul! Never seen them in white before. Iíve heard great things about improving the picture, but I use mine only for audio.

Run my Digi through the Majic Buss and love it.
What it does for video and audio is amazing.

ps: white is right.

Hi Nick! On a whim (and because I've never seen a Buss like it), I asked Dave to make one in white.  I actually asked Dave to just make the body white, but he did one better and painted the top plate white as well! And, I did not want to mistake it for the DigiBuss, so I asked for a different color.

I just removed the tv from the Buss and plugged in the amp - even without much burn in, the sound I am hearing is already very special! More on this later.

Question to all Buss and Digi users here - so do I plug in the DigiBuss into the Buss or leave them separate? Don mentioned a 'Magic Buss', is this a different type of product?

Hi Paul,
A very excellent snap decision on your part  :thumb: The attention to detail is so nice to see and I appreciate vendors having the ability and taking the time to do that. Had I thought of it, I might have asked Dave for a midnight blue or dark crimson.
Happy listening 🎶🎶

The MajikBUSS was my first product.  Don has a very special one (1 of the first 2 prototypes) that was built for a friend of mine that passed away from pancreatic cancer.  Colin returned it to me with the admonition to gift it to someone in his name.  Special seeks its due.

The white cover plate was serendipity.  My supplier mis-shipped 1 white one in an order, so it all worked out.

Plug the Digi into the Mini and you tell us!  :thumb:

Also, I'll be interested in your direct comparison of the standard 5362A to the UberPuerto.  Remember: each receptacle needs separate break-in.

I can hardly wait to try the UberPuerto. Right now it is feeding an extension cord with lights and the wifi extender. I need to get used to the sound I am hearing now, which is already incredible!

In a week or two, I'll plug in the Digi, and then try the UberPuerto after it has broken in.

As to the receptacles each needing separate break-in, I just don't have enough gear to plug into them!

Now I have an excuse to buy another sub, amp, streamer, tube amp.... :lol:
