    Yes, SACD ISO to PCM can be done in one process, but the defaults are somewhat confusing. Since you have a 24/96 DAC make sure you go into JRiver's DSP section and choose 96k for all sample rates...

    Tranz,
    I run Media Server only (it runs as a startup service in WS2012). When I want to browse I use JRemote. If i need to do servicing then I right-click Media Server in the task bar and it...

    VSK,
    I assume folder view shows only one subfolder too? Try deleting the Lightning app and then re-installing and have it repopulate your library view.

    What UPnP server app are you using? It's the server app, not Aries, that actually manages your library. It needs to be told what to scan and index. Then Aries renders it.

    Adam, it will be in the 3rd part of my review series (where I explain the pieces/parts of the dual CAPS/JRiver/JPlay/AO system). I will do a review on AO, the TotalDAC D1 USB and the JCAT series of...

    I find it interesting that as the world is walking away from watches (other than the hobbyists/collectors, and they won't be caught dead with a smartwatch), going for less redundancy (their phone...

    I'd love to hear the Antipodes (as an Aurender alternative) and the Rendu (as an Aries alternative) but there's only so much time. And I suck at time management. I look forward to John's comments,...

    Thanks for your support Jason! ?

    Yes, readers, my time and investment trumps any honesty. If you read my reviews or posts you'll know I'm all about bs and what's in it for Ted.

    I am preparing an article series (reviews) that discuss my opinion about the three main ways of getting music to DACs (streamer aka Aries, all-in-one Linux server aka Aurender, and DIY-based CAPS V3...

    802.11N or wired (sorry, that doesn't address bandwidth per se, but I think we are overthinking this IMO...but then I'm fairly non-tech :) )

    No router? Not sure how your LAN is set up, but yes just like JRIver and JRemote the Aries and it's Lightning DS app can use your home network LAN, and they are called Aries, etc. Not sure how...

    Illustrate's support is very good. Contact them. Normally, to move a DBPoweramp license you just re-use the download link that came with your order number. I know cuz I just did it a month ago. ...

    Yep, if it works fine wired it is likely poor wireless bandwidth (for DSD). Make sure you are using N, at least.

    Kirk,
    Why wouldn't the perspective be that this device is altering the sound even less than anything he ever heard? Why more?

    Oops, Chris was typing while I was and reached same point.

    I guess you liked it. :)

    What was the primary source and path? Did you find it immune or sensitive to cabling? Did you attempt to convert DSD to 176k+, and if so, how did it sound vs native...

    Agreed, but one would think Synergistic, Mapleshade and Oyaide make decent cables. It is likely his TotalDac USB receiver that is the culprit, but if anyone else has had issues we might as well ask....

    So do we need a thread that lists the USB cables tested with the Aries? I have not found any that fail (but then never went too far with it since all 3 of mine worked).
    Mine are:
    TotalDac D1 (Yes)...

    One option: download a trial version of JRiver, which has an easy-to-use remapping screen. That way you can see if the C or LFE channel is the source.

    OK, beyond the cables (and yes I use Vincent's wonderful TotalDAC D1 cable too..it's great)......how was the test? How did the Aries do vs the TotalDac server?? :)

    Jimmypowder/Jason, thank you. Yes, 320kbps can be very musical. My Hugo does wonders with that sample rate, and has been reported elsewhere (headfi, etc).

    Speaking of the Hugo, it's coax input...

    Also, I think I will post over on the Hardware thread a request to have the Aries coax (at least) increased to 24/384k. Not a simple firmware fix, I'm sure, but there are several DACs out there...

    I started it (reporting about digital outputs from Aries) and the obvious intent was to confirm DoP over each of them. Otherwise why report. Maybe too much of an assumption (although I specifically...
