    HQPlayer Linux Desktop and HQplayer embedded

    Hi Jussi @Miska We discussed a few months ago the possibility of seeing the current HQPe volume on the ‘’main’ page. I see more features being added to this main page. Are you still planning to show this current volume? Maybe even a volume adjuster? Roon can show the exact dB of HQPe but BubbleUPnP and mConnect and Audirvana don’t - these only show a volume %. I thought maybe the ‘’main’ page can show the current volume in dB like Roon does? If one could adjust from this page that would be a great bonus but even just a display of current would be great. Love all the HQPe updates you are releasing. Many thanks

    HQ player settings with iFI Micro DSD

    For PCM768kHz I see NS9 selected. Is NS5 better at PCM768kHz?

    Yep I also have gapless with A+ to HQPe. Very nice.

    USB cable comparisons

    iFi have been supporting USB 3.0 connectors since the iDAC and maybe earlier... https://ifi-audio.com/products/micro-idac2/

    True. The MiniDSP USBStreamer is cheaper than a 2nd HQPe machine with 2nd license, just for PC/Mac audio.

    Yup that's what I mean. So if I want DSD512 also (not from Mac/PC but from Roon for example) then I need would need a 2nd HQPe license - so one HQPe license for UpBoard for PC/Mac audio and the 2nd HQPe license for Roon-to-DSD512 upsampling. Not a problem, but just trying to make sure I understand the setup to get this all working. I'll test with HQPe on the UpBoard first though, to see how this PC/Mac audio works. Ideal would be a powerful HQPe machine with a type-B device port, so just need one HQPe machine but that's my problem, not yours of course.

    @Miskabasically then I will need 2 x HQP Embedded machines (therefore 2 x licenses)? HQPe on one UpBoard which the Mac/PC should see over the network. And this connects to a 2nd more power HQPe doing my DSD512 upsampling?

    Ah I see. I have an UpBoard used as NAA right now. So I can test with that. If it works well, I'll just get a 2nd one.

    @Miska I also booted Windows on my Macbook (bootcamp) and Windows doesn't see HQPe either. I tried both USB2.0 and USB 3.0 male-to-male type A. Am I supposed to see HQP Embedded as an option here on MacOS?

    Will a normal PC/Mac's USB port do the same - can act as both host port and device port? I did try a USB3.0 Type A male to male cable and my Mac didn't see HQPe. I'll try USB 2.0 male to male Type A cable. My HQPe machine is an Asus H110T i7-7700T with latest BIOS update.

    Jussi, has anyone from Amanero ever contacted you to fix this Linux native DSD512 support issue? I have a feeling you would fix it... Somebody from Amanero please pay the man a small fee for his time ! 🙂

    Hi Jussi. So just a Type-A male to male USB 2.0 / 3.0 cable, from a PC/MAC USB port to HQP Embedded machine's USB port?
