  1. Hi all - Just picked up a Raspberry Pi 3 to use in my bedroom system, strictly over wifi. I find that I can cleanly stream 16/44 via mpd and Roon with no issue. When I get to 24/192 though, Roon tends to handle it well (some network slowness, but I can typically play the files cleanly). mpd chokes though. I'm playing with the buffering settings there without success so far, but this is an unexpected situation re: mpd. I'e got a Beaglebone Black in my main rig and it runs 24/192 flawlessly, though it uses Ethernet and applies the performance governor. I've tried changing the governor on the Pi as well, but that seems to cause major throttling (I've got some heat sinks en route to test out). But since Roon is generally OK, this seems more like a wifi throughput issue - or mpd buffering issue - than a CPU issue. Happy to hear any thoughts. Pi is running headless, removed all traces of X server. I do keep Roon Bridge running though. Thanks all! Justin
  2. Mine arrives any day. It handles 24/192 (a first for me) but I have to wonder if even Schiit can pull off a $150 DAC that can translate enough of that resolution to make it worth the downloads. Anybody have one of these little guys? Gary [h=1]SCHIIT ANNOUNCES NEXT-GEN MAGNI AND MODI[/h][h=2]12/12/2014[/h]Enhanced Performance and Flexibility; New Uber Models December 12, Valencia, CA. Two years after the announcement of the original Magni headphone amplifier and Modi USB DAC, Schiit Audio introduces the next generation: Magni 2 and Modi 2, together with their even more feature-packed Uber models. This introduction means additional flexibility and performance for Magni 2 and Modi 2 at the same price level ($99) as the original Magni and Modi, while Magni 2 Uber and Modi 2 Uber reset the value equation for entry-level products at $149 each. "We've added gain switching to Magni 2, and 24/192 capability to Modi 2, and kept them at the same price as the originals," said Jason Stoddard, Schiit's Co-Founder. "But we went all-out on the Uber models, adding preamp outputs and higher power to Magni 2 Uber, and making the Modi 2 Uber essentially a mini-Bifrost, with optical, coaxial, and USB inputs. Now, the flexibility and performance you can expect at the entry point to high-end personal audio is much higher than ever before." In total, four products were announced: Magni 2. All-new discrete headphone amp with 1.2W RMS per channel and switchable high/low gain, together with a refined constant-feedback gain stage. The update of what's arguably the most popular headphone amp, ever. $99. Magni 2 Uber. All-new discrete headphone amp with 1.5W RMS per channel, switchable high/low gain, preamp outputs, and even more sophisticated constant-feedback gain stage. Also includes new 24VA wall transformer (3x larger than Magni) and aluminum top chassis and knob. $149. Modi 2. All-new USB asynchronous DAC with switchable USB Class 1 and Class 2 modes. USB Class 1 remains driverless for all supported computers, USB Class 2 adds 24/192 capability, but requires drivers for Windows. The update of one of the most popular USB DACs ever. $99. Modi 2 Uber. All-new USB, optical, and coaxial three-input DAC running full USB Class 2 for 24/192 capability through all inputs. Essentially a mini Bifrost. AC linear power supply with included 8VA wall transformer. Aluminum pushbutton and top chassis. $149.
  3. I just downloaded this new 24/192 Binaural+ album off of HD Tracks. foobar2000 1.1.13 / Dynamic Range Meter 1.1.1 log date: 2012-10-09 12:32:12 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Analyzed: Amber Rubarth / Sessions from the 17th Ward -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DR Peak RMS Duration Track -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- DR15 0.00 dB -20.77 dB 5:41 01-Hold On DR11 -0.17 dB -15.63 dB 2:12 02-Don't You DR16 0.00 dB -21.16 dB 1:17 03-Strive DR14 -4.00 dB -23.13 dB 2:46 04-A Kiss to Build a Dream On DR15 -0.25 dB -20.34 dB 2:05 05-Down Home DR15 -0.44 dB -19.49 dB 4:57 06-Novocaine DR13 -5.88 dB -23.76 dB 1:47 07-Darkest Dark, Brightest Bright DR19 0.00 dB -22.84 dB 2:16 08-Tundra DR15 0.00 dB -18.64 dB 3:20 09-Good Mystery DR13 -6.78 dB -25.22 dB 5:05 10-Washing Day DR16 -4.61 dB -26.65 dB 2:16 11-Sneak DR14 -1.82 dB -22.14 dB 3:26 12-Full Moon in Paris DR14 -4.64 dB -25.10 dB 3:58 13-Just Like a Woman DR13 -7.12 dB -25.23 dB 3:39 14-Storms Are On the Ocean -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Number of tracks: 14 Official DR value: DR14 Samplerate: 192000 Hz Channels: 2 Bits per sample: 24 Bitrate: 5314 kbps Codec: FLAC ================================================================================ I'm pretty sure there was no compressor used in this recording and it was direct from the binaural dummy head microphone which would explain the widely varying dynamic range between tracks. Now for Frequency Plots of Track 11 "Sneak": On the first frequency plot you can see the microphones response is nearly 35Khz. To the left of the second frequency plot you can see the rising frequency response and increased ultrasonic noise floor caused by post processing of the dummy head frequency rolloff. To the right you can see the characteristic apodizing digital filter used in the MSB Studio ADC (I can recognize this response now as unique among ADCs used by studios)
  4. $595 plus $15 shipping USPS priority. I have a Bladelius USB DAC for sale in the U.S. This DAC was designed in Sweden, but manufactured in California. Uses XMOS USB receiver chip to play asynchronous 24/192 files. MAC OSX 10.6 or above does not require a driver. Windows XP, Vista or 7 requires the included USB 2.0 driver (on the included USB stick). I have added the latest firmware update to the DAC, so it is ready to go. I have decided to purchase a Bel Canto Ref USB to SPDIF converter to go with my Bel Canto DAC3. Let me know if you have any questions.
