  1. Article: Computer Audiophile Pocket Server C.A.P.S. v4 Cortes

    This 'Cortes Server' is not a NAS, but quite a powerful server with couple of disks. To build a NAS, you need a chassis built for that, with cages for hotswap HDDs. You need Xeon if you will run something there, like some dockers or VMs. Look at the specs of Synology or QNap - they barely have some low power Atom. And this beefy power supply - what for?? I have a 16bay 3" nas with 500W ps only. The new one will come with 64G, Xeon E6 and HBAs

    Wasn't it WASAPI issue regarding stability?
  3. JRiver 22 + Win10 Creator Update Problem

    (1) m2tech is not a USB audio class 2 device, it is a proprietary design (2) USB audio class 2 is not compatible even with some devices that are supposed to be compatible like Chord, which released (again) their driver for Windows 10
  4. JRiver 22 + Win10 Creator Update Problem

    No, because right now the system is working and I don't like installing things on my audio-pc. Supported or not, but I did saw some minor fix in ASIO4ALL released for Windows 10
  5. JRiver 22 + Win10 Creator Update Problem

    Did you try ASIO4ALL?
  6. JRiver 22 + Win10 Creator Update Problem

    I did not update foobar on my audio-pc for maybe 3 years as I use JRiver 100% of the time, so WASAPI component is essentially the same there.. and it still works. I exchanged few emails with Marco around a month ago, he told by that by the end of August when his team will be back from vacation they will look into it. My problem, actually, with this is more severe - as I have a custom-built driver by m2tech for Metronome (signed by m2tech certificate in 2011 also). BSOD on my PC showed unhandled exception in m2tech driver (metron64.sys in my case), usually it is quite simple to fix.. Frankly, I am working with Kernel Streaming now, and it works smoothly with all the formats, however I remember that it was not the case. So I'm afraid that Microsoft will one day introduce some 'security fix' that will bury also KS
  7. JRiver 22 + Win10 Creator Update Problem

    Re-tested today, foobar2000 works perfectly. It may be related to Windows Update https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=111231.0 https://www.tenforums.com/windows-10-news/85343-cumulative-update-kb4020102-windows-10-v1703-build-15063-332-a-13.html http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/126174-warning-windows-creator-update-conflict-with-chord-dac-driver/ But foobar2000 works with WASAPI, it is just JRiver crashing the PC.
  8. JRiver 22 + Win10 Creator Update Problem

    I got same response from Marco @ m2tech I have Metronome C6, which is also based on m2tech usb Strange thing is that I upgraded JRiver MC21 for my friend to MC23, and he has EMM, which is based on XMOS I think. And it does not work anymore with WASAPI. Frankly, he has ASIO So it looks to me like an issue with JRiver MC22 and MC23 since foobar2000 works fine and MC21 works as well
  9. Thanks My driver of my m2tech-based DAC does not support WASAPI under new Windows 10, I remember it worked once
  10. Hello What USB to SPDIF/AES-EBU interface today supports Windows 10 Creators Edition USB driver (i.e. no installation required on Windows) -? thanks,
  11. Article: Mytek Brooklyn DAC / Preamp Review

    These had a small corner, no booth or room, on Munich show. There were no speakers, the only way to listen was via headphones.. Anyway, after an hour looking after them, eventually I found them and brought with me a gang of audiophiles with quite serious systems, and said - 'this is thing!' To my surprise, the sound was so.. I don't know what to say.. my son's Schiit 200$ system sounds more resolving, deeper, more precise, and more touching. Disappointing..
  12. Article: AURALiC ALTAIR Review

    Nice review. The question how does it stack against the competition.
  13. I agree with you. Mine also supports VST3 (with all the rates), it just not stable enough for me
  14. I don't know myself what will be in the upgrade as you see Dirac do not release much information. But for sure it will be based on the beta I have, so if I have no support for 88/176 rates, so there is high chance the next version won't have it as well.
