    Install drivers on NAA machine.
  2. Hi guys..as the title says I am having issues installing the LAN drivers for my mobo, Gigabyte Z270MX. This mobo has the Killer E2500 ethernet controller. When I try to install the driver I get an error saying my OS is not "adequate". The driver says its compatible with Windows 8.1 which as I understand it is basically what Server 2012 R2 is based on. Does anyone have any pointers on how to install this LAN driver?

    I am very interested in your comments about the wired ethernet. I intend to purchase the Allo after xmas to use as an NAA receiving DSD512 from HQP. I have heard from several other Allo owners that they were able to play DSD512 through the Allo wired ethernet connection without any issue. Are you having a problem? What do you mean by "slow"? Is the music stuttering?
  4. Anyone using HQPD app?

    Just wondering is anyone has used the android app to control HQP? I've been using Roon without any issue but frankly for what I need its a rather expensive solution. The app looks promising. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=cz.prochazkaa.hqpdcontrol

    Spoke too soon. I dont have the option to select Sleep for the power button, only shutdown. Oh well, back to wasting power and money.

    This is a great idea..not sure why I didnt think of it. I guess I was too focused on trying to have the changing of the power setting be fully automated. I am going to do this right now. Thank you!

    @Miska I notice on your Facebook page that version 3.19.1 "also cleans up the reported status information towards control applications". When playing native DSD files and upconverting to DSD512 I am still seeing Roon report the filter in the signal path. As I understand it, when playing DSD only the integrator and modulator matters right? If so, then should the filter be reported in Roon?
  8. Glad you like it too! I was thinking about getting an Allo Sparky which is of course driverless but now I am having second thoughts because I like this driver so much! Decision decisions.
  9. No reason for apologies my friend! I just wanted to make sure I was understanding your post correctly. Main thing is that this driver is superb!
  10. thanks Ted...I kept re-reading that post to make sure I wasnt missing anything. Sounds like we both are hearing more dynamics. Glad it just wasnt me and a lack of coffee this morning.
  11. I may be totally nuts but I hear a definite difference between the Singxer and Holo drivers. Music with the Singxer driver is more energetic and "bigger" sounding. Leading edge of notes seem to hit harder and sound more crisp. The overall presentation is larger in the sense that the music envelopes the room more. I wonder how a driver can cause these differences?
  12. My apologies but I must be missing something. If the buffer setting in HQP overrides the one in the driver control panel it shouldnt matter what it is set to right? Also, if you set the HQP setting to default and change the driver setting to whatever is equivalent to 5ms you should get the same result? I guess my point, arent you supposed to set the buffer setting in either HQP or the driver control panel, not both?
  13. OK I changed the driver buffer settings to a bunch of different values and the number shown in the NAA window also changes and is always a multiple of 32 when playing DSD512. When I play PCM, the buffer values match. Is this because the Singxer is 32 bit and DSD is 1 bit? Curious, have you tried setting HQP buffer to default and just used the driver settings? Are you getting stuttering?
  14. I thought Miska said we should leave the HQP buffer setting to default which let's the driver take control unless you unable to eliminate stuttering using the driver settings.
  15. Hi guys...I am a little confused with the various buffer numbers I am seeing the NAA window. (see below). In the NAA window, the ASIO buffer size is 4096 but the Singxer status window shows 128. Is the buffer size in the Singxer control panel adjusted automatically somehow based on input format?
