Hi Andrew. To be clearer, can you confirm the attached HQPlayer settings work with the sonicT i7, running Roon on the same machine?

 

Doesn’t have to be with this DAC shown below - any DSD512 DAC you have is fine.

 

What CPU usage do you get with these particular settings?

 

Appreciated.

It’s real hard work getting answers to this ...

I have the i7 and have tried to upgrade 3 times but it stays on 2.5

We will have another upgrade procedure for the i7 soon.

I have tried to upgrade my sonicTransporter i5 3 times and it stays on 2.5. Only the first time did the log show anything actually being done.

 

Ideas?

Ha, nice to know someone is feeling my pain.

 

Is there something impolite about the way I’m asking?

 

Any advice is appreciated, ha.

I don't see your point. He said, "DSD512 upsampling works fine on the sonicTransporter i7".

Hi JR, as you know DSD512 can be made to run very very CPU intensive and also less CPU intensive. So the statement that DSD512 works doesn't answer my question at all and I'm sure you know this.

 

Not sure how much clearer I can ask about testing with specific settings, attached again for a 3rd time.

 

Can Andrew run the sonicT i7 with these specific settings (attached) with Roon Server running on the same machine?

 

And confirm CPU usage with these settings?

 

I hope this is clearer.

 

If you don't want to test it that's fine, but can you at least send @Miska a sonicT i7 and then people can ask him all the HQPlayer settings questions they can dream of? This seems the best and reasonable solution to me, if it's all too difficult to test.

Hmmm...  @agillis problem is I'll need to update the microJukebox for new versions of LMS and other less-demanding apps, and 2.6 is my only choice:

 

There is a more in depth procedure to get 2.6. You can press the update button.

This is the one I posted to JR yesterday (see page 1 of this thread), nice and big when clicked.

Ah. Thank you. I pressed the button and it only upgraded from 2.5.35 to .36 so no worries. Just as fast as the recent minor LMS update. Speaking of which, Michael is asking what LMS bug you were referring to there [link].

Thanks Andrew, we finally got there.

 

Just to double check, there is no session time limit with trying HQP embedded on the sonicT?

 

We can listen and trial for as long as we like, for up to 30 days, even running 24 hours if we want? Paging @Miska

It has the normal trial limitations... So restart needed every 30 minutes.

Thanks, I thought so. That's not what was indicated on page 1 of this thread, but thanks for clarifying.

Any chance of a introduction offer Miska ? 😀

 

The embedded is almost double the price I paid for the windows version.

I updated the post...it's 30 minutes and not 30 days without a license.
