bigbob posted a topic in DAC - Digital to Analog ConversionI run Ubuntu Linux 14.04LTS, using Audacious (v3.7.2) music player, ALSA set to 24 bit with proper hardware configurations from the drop down lists. This is my issue-- When the computer reboots, the Dragonfly falls asleep (the dragonfly turns red) after a few seconds. The solution which works is pulling the USB device out and re-inserting and waiting to see if it stays 'awake'. If it stays awake, it runs flawlessly until the next time the box reboots. Audioquest does not support Linux. Audacious has the Dragonfly parameters in the ALSA choices. It is a mystery for which I have yet to find a solution. One friend said it may be a hardware configuration within Linux, which means there should be a solution. I am not all that tech savy, but if anyone can give me a CLI solution, I can input it in terminal. Thanks
3Dee posted a topic in Music ServersI have a home network workgroup with Sfast Fibre BB, and this has a big XPS desktop which I use for work and other stuff. I also have a Sony Android tablet that I use currently to control an old Dell XPS laptop/ Jriver server driving my Devialet 400 amps with files kept on a QNAP TS 453 mini. I decided to bite the bullet and invest in a WServer2012 Essentials based system with AO & Jriver, so set about building a system with HD-Plex H5 chassis, Linear PS, Xeon CPU, Samsung SSD, JCat USB card, PPA SATA III (coming soon) cable, and probably the Gigabyte Z97 Mobo upgraded with PPA's OXCO clock. I can obviously run WS2012 in minimal GUI or std mode I presume. So, as I have only just started to configure all this, and I am aware that some prefer a dual PC type of arrangement for music serving, but now I am delving into an area I am not familiar with, as I had originally intended just to replace the Dell XPS with the H5. There is also much mentioned in the AO blurb about having dual networks, but how important is this? Is it optimal betwix NAS and server (I presume)? Is this just for dual PC arrangements? Should I use my work PC as control PC (not optimised since it does other stuff)? etc etc Given all the equipment I have above can anyone (who has done this before) suggest some config & options and how it might affect SQ? This music server will mostly be used for music, but I might have a go at using it to serve the telly later (or might just use an app on the QNAP), but not sure yet - music first! Hope someone with experience in this will take the trouble to make some suggestions! Thanks in advance!
OK so this might be a crazy idea, and it might also be totally impossible. Furthermore, it might be completely pointless, but I have a crazy idea and I want to know if you guys think it's possible. What I'm trying to do is have all the audio that would come from anything displayed on my TV (HDMI out on my GeForce card) run through one set of speakers. The speakers in question is a tower speaker running through the audio out on the back of my computer. But I would also like any audio that would come from anything displayed on my monitor (DVI out on the GeForce) run through a different set of speakers. Those speakers would be the ones that are mounted in my monitor, and run through the headphone out port on my computer. The windows audio thing recognizes the headphone port and the audio out on the back as two totally separate ports, and I can run them both at the same time, or one at a time, depending on what I set as default audio out. Do you guys think this is possible? Any constructive input would be appreciated, no rush as, like I said, this might be completely pointless, it's just a crazy idea I had that I thought might be cool. In the end, I want to be able to drag, for example, a youtube video that is playing from my TV to the monitor and have the audio follow it.
