  1. No worries barrows - didn’t think so, hence my question :-) I’ll ask Damien at A+ for help at the Mac side The same Mac has no issues in terms of upsampling to DSD256 7th order with Roon - no issues with processing power.
  2. Audirvana 3.1

    Hi @damien78 I asked this in the Sonore thread but it probably belongs here (maybe). When using A+ with the ultraRendu and DSD256 upsampling, do we need to reduce the memory buffer in A+ settings? How much memory is in the ultraRendu? And in the case of Audirvana + DSD256 upsampling + ultraRendu, is it the Mac that is doing the upsampling or the ultraRendu? Does the ultraRendu have the power for DSD256 up-sampling? Cheers in advance
  3. Same experience I'm having Jim. So I guess this means the ultraRendu endpoint is doing the up-sampling, when using A+ If so, it makes sense that it would struggle with DSD128 up-sampling and higher, since the ultraRendu is a low powered endpoint (by design) @vortecjr can correct me if I'm wrong
  4. Oh that's not new. Great DAC & Amp though. The nano BL is new. The opening post of this thread is referring to the nano BL.
  5. Hi JR @vortecjr When using A+ with the ultraRendu and DSD256 upsampling, do we need to reduce the memory buffer in A+ settings? How much memory is in the ultraRendu?

  6. Where are these details for the new micro iDSD BL? I've only seen the new nano BL
  7. Hi Miska Any chance you can publish the S2 Digital's measurements? For comparison with your iFi iDSD measurements, especially with HQP up-sampling?
  8. Improve My System

    Just seen mention of your system in the other thread. I think Apple TV3 > Oppo 205 via HDMI cable will sound good, especially if your music is only CD quality (not 24bit Hi-Res). If you REALLY wanted to stick with TOSLink from ATV3 > Oppo, I highly recommend this: https://ifi-audio.com/portfolio-view/accessory-spdif-ipurifier/ The iFi would plug directly into the Oppo's Digital Coax input (no cable required, as the iFi would be TOSlink input, and Digital Coax output).
  9. MQA is Vaporware

    As per my F1 example, I doubt an F1 price (can't be bought anyway) will ever drop down to within my budget but it's tech does trickle down to production cars. See this: http://www.popularmechanics.com/cars/technology/a24799/racing-innovations-real-engineering/ I've gone way off topic but my point isn't really about the current price but where it may lead to later, for affordable products - if it's any good... Like I said, I've never heard this BACCH 3D but heard a lot of raving about it and would love to hear a demo myself.
  10. MQA is Vaporware

    Hehe yes but it's a little like how F1 tech sometimes trickles down to affordable production cars some 5-10 years later. Maybe some of that tech will trickle down (or maybe not). But would love to have a listen.
  11. MQA is Vaporware

    Actually that BACCH 3D stuff (which is what that refers to) does sound interesting from what I've read. Looking forward to hearing a demo one day. Anyway there are other threads about that:
  12. MQA is Vaporware

    It was interesting to see Sandy Gross (of GoldenEar Tech - I owned Tritons until recently) express enthusiasm about MQA in a recent interview here: http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/qa-with-sandy-gross-of-goldenear-technology/ "What I would say is that digital audio has finally achieved a level of quality that makes it acceptable to me. Initially, despite claims of perfect reproduction, it drilled holes in your head. Now, it has really matured into a very satisfying medium for music enjoyment. And with advances like MQA and Edgar Choueiri’s digital acoustic crosstalk cancellation device, it is really cooking!"

    Also when I say Qobuz plans to 'take on' Roon, I mean compete, not acquire. That's how I interpret the Roon comment anyway: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/qobuz-news-and-correspondence/17536/8
  14. MQA is Vaporware

    All very good questions. But sadly unless something leaks from a credible source, we won't know anything until an official announcement from Qobuz. But definitely interesting as you say.
  15. MQA is Vaporware

    Actually Roon's COO said that Qobuz have plans to taken on Roon. Whether that means UI, DSP or multi zone / grouped zone playback, or all of the above, we'll have to wait and see. But it appears they have big plans. https://community.roonlabs.com/t/qobuz-news-and-correspondence/17536/8
