  1. I've just completed the process of putting together a dedicated machine to run Roon + HQPlayer. I'm upsampling everything to DSD 512 (which I feed into a T+A DAC 8 DSD). The OS is W10 (Enterprise) and I've already removed a lot of applications which I will not be using (like One Drive, Skype et al). In this context, and while I'm in awe with the SQ, I would like to get the last drop of performance and Fidelizer or Audiophile Optimizer seem to be the most widely used options. Which one do you think will work best with W10? Thanks!

    Greetings, My name is May and I’m working for SOtM as a marketing manager. It’s so pleasure to introduce myself here officially and great chance to announce the sMS-200 availability through this chance. Some may already have known our sMS-200 but some may not know about this brilliant mini network player, so here I briefly introduce what sMs-200 is, [ATTACH=CONFIG]28837[/ATTACH][ATTACH=CONFIG]28838[/ATTACH] It features - Excellent modern design. - Use the separated audio power board. - Use the exclusive large audio condenser. - Use the exclusive audio components to reach forward to analog sound. - Use the heat sinks for the stable operation and anti-noise. - Use the high standard noise reduction circuit which has been qualified by SOtM’s tX-USBexp, SATA filter and others. - Use the high standard active noise filter and UKJC which has been qualified by SOtM’s tX-USBexp, sDP-1000EX and others. - Use the High-End audio grade USB port. - Use the 2 x standard USB ports for USB storage device.

  3. I just bought HQ Player. Really hope to use the ReplayGain function but it turns out it`s not supported by HQ Player yet. I see currently the only solution to get a Replaygain on Mac is to purchase the very expensive Roon, which is really not needed by me. The point is, I really don`t want to spend 500 dollars on one single function, which is actually very common to music player softwares nowadays: iTunes, Spotify, Audirvana, Tidal, etc., almost every single music player support loudness normalization control. Really wish to see it in HQ Player, because I really need this function...

    HQ Player, NAA, OS and tweaks

    Hi everyone For a while, I planned on building a single audio computer ala CAPS. Then I posted a thread and Jud commented on some of points that got me to rethink my whole strategy. He basically in a few sentences got me to understand the concept of the player / NAA. But it also raised many questions for me. I guess the player / NAA model I am most familar with is HQ Player. Let's start with my questions on that. Can the NAA and the main PC run on different OS? One being e.g. Windows, the other Linux. I plan to use a Hardkernel Odroid as the NAA. Otherwise it would need to be a more expensive x64 based solution If I understand correctly, the whole player / NAA concept is meant to separate the noisy decoding process away from feeding the DAC with a clean signal. The way I understand it, it would work because the connection runs over network, which would serve as block as no electrical signal gets transmitted unlike with USB. My thoughts therefore are that any tweaking (LPSU, minimize activity on the NAA, USB filters etc) should be concentrating around the NAA. The PC could be a plan standard box. Or am I wrong and things like AO optimizer, LPSU etc help as well when you apply them on the player? On the website, I can find the Player package, but where is the NAA package and what are the minimum requirements? That said, is there other software that has this NAA architecture? I believe JPLAY does allow for this too? But what else? Thanks for your time!
