Unboxing the BaseUs USB-C Hub for Phones (NuDock on Kickstarter)

Hi everyone, I uploaded a new video to my YouTube channel. This time, I present you the BaseUs USB-C Hub, also called NuDock when it ran on Kickstarter. The final product turned out to be this BaseUs USB-C Hub, with identical features to the Kickstarter project. The project creator told us that because NuDock was already being used, they had to rename the dock to BaseUs. Watch the unboxing video below:

Fixing the Orange LED of the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

Fixing the Orange LED of the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

Hi everyone, I have found a solution for when my Tempotec iDSD Plus gets the Orange LED. The solution is fairly easy. I believe that something may not be making good contact with the printed circuit board and may be preventing the DAC from working. However, slightly pushing around the SmartAction SA2000 chip, it seems to make the LED change back to green and allow the unit to work. You can see the video below where you can see the…

Can’t get Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18875 to install…

UPDATE 4/13/2019: Yesterday, I published how to install build 18875. Click here to read the post. Hi everyone, Today, Microsoft released Windows 10 Insider Preview build 18875, but I’m unable to install it on my machines.

I removed the contents in C:\windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download and it seems to be able to download…

A week with the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

A week with the Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus

Hi everyone, It’s been actually more than a week with my new Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus, and my experience with this new unit has been very positive. First of all, I haven’t faced the Blue LED problem again. As I wrote in my teardown article, they changed some components inside that may prevent this problem from happening again, but it also seems to have introduced a problem where the unit main LED turns orange. This happens rarely, and the unit…

New Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus Teardown

Hi everyone, Today, I decided to do a Teardown of the new Tempotec Sonata iDSD Plus unit I received to compare the internal components to my previous Tempotec/Hidizs DAC. The unit is identical from the outside, so I did the same teardown process I did before for this new unit. The best way to open it is to use a sharp object to very careful try to detach the glass. To my surprise, this new unit wasn’t glued entirely. It…
