  1. Hi everyone. I tried to find an answer to my question searching the forums but could not. I have fallen behind my hobby in the last 4.5 years and computer audio has moved on considerably. The last time I shopped around and felt like up to date, there was no Roon and no Microrendu, no HQPlayer. It was mostly about Jriver, Jplay and AO. And definitely linear power supplies. I’m willing to upgrade what I have in hand and I’m very confused. I will very much appreciate if you can help. Please do not recommend me to do years of reading. Help if you can. Digital side of my setup: 1. Dual boot Single PC CAPS V3 Zuma (Intel i7-3770T / Intel DH77EB Micro ATX / SOtM tX-USBexp / SOTM Sata filter / Streacom F5 / 128gb SSD only for OS) 2. Powered by 3 rail Paul Hynes linear power supply (Motherboard, SOTM, SSD) 3. Dual boot: a. Jriver19 on WinServer2012R2 AO1.26 Core – strictly audio b. Jriver20 on Win10 – audio, video, family, ease of use… 4. Meitner MA-1 DAC 5. Synology NAS – where all audio(/video) files are Now the hard part, I would like to upgrade my hardware to venture into more resource intensive software like Dirac and/or HQPlayer. My idea is to upgrade the CPU, motherboard and memory cards and stick with the rest (case, ssd, sotm gear and the power supply). I really need video capability, that’s why I have the dual boot currently. Does this make sense? I already have a brand new CPU in hand, i7-7700T. Can you recommend me a motherboard? Preferably microATX to stick with the former CAPS v3 design? Or am I being foolish? This route will ignore the MicroRendu trend, right? Spending all that money for new mobo, memory etc I could very well get myself a MicroRendu. Am I sacrificing too much for that friendly video capable win10 boot for family? Is there a way to have best of both worlds? Your guidance will be most appreciated.
  2. I would like to reform the way I listen to music today and migrate to a Roon platform. What's holding me back is that I don't understand if I can have endpoints that can implement FIR crossovers and output over a multi-channel DAC, the way I do it today with JRIVER convolving filters created with Audiolense. So let's say my bedroom system consist of a pair of 2-way active speakers, where each of the 4 drivers is driven by its own Class D amp, which amps in turn are fed by a multi-channel DAC (like the miniDSP U-DAC8) connected to a NUC running Win 10 and JRIVER for convolver duties. Today, this is a DLNA endpoint (through JRIVER) but it is my understanding that this doesn't work with Roon, where Roon needs to own the queue and the endpoints are stupid. So how could I achieve this with Roon? Convolve at Core/Server level rather than at endpoint? I know Roon can convolve but can it convolve multiple filters and streams for different rooms/endpoints in parallel? Can Roon even convolve a stereo signal into a multi-channel signal or is it limited to stereo output only (i.e. room correction but no crossovers)? Do I need to involve HQplayer somehow? Ideally, I would like to use RPi 3/DietPi/Roon Bridge endpoints but I doubt they would have the CPU power to convolve say six channels of 131k tap FIR filters. Even if the Roon Server could convolve, is RPi 3/DietPi/Roon Bridge compatible with any multi-channel USB DACs? What about Signalyst's NAA instead of Roon Bridge, does that change anything? Or could I just install Roon Bridge on a Windows 10 NUC and use JRIVER WDM output to a multi-channel DAC? If that's the only way, I'll go with that, but it's just not a very elegant solution....
  3. BBC3 is starting a pilot to stream lossless FLAC: http://www.bbc.co.uk/taster/projects/radio-3-concert-sound/inside-story @Miska: I understand HQPlayer can play FLAC streams. Would it work in this case? Also, would it be possible to allow to add such stream from the HQPlayer GUI? Currently the method is to add it via a playlist (I have not tried).
  4. I plan on building a PC which will be used as a source for my DAC. Initially I planned on doing a fully fanless PC, but due to the HQPlayer's processing requirements I will have to go with Nvidia Pascal which has a fan. Hopefully there is some version which comes with a "silent" fan. So, I basically made a list of components, but I am not sure if all this will work together and if someone could check the list and/or add any suggestion I would appreciate it. Here we go: 1. Case: Streacom FC5WS EVO This is a fanless case which supports CPUs with 65W TDP 2. Power supply: HDPLEX HiFi 300W DC-ATX + Dell 330w da330pm111 3. Motherboard: GA-Z270MX-Gaming 5 This board has USB DAC-UP 2 feature which is suppose to have less noise. Not quite sure I understand it, though. 3. CPU: Intel 7th i7-7700T Has TDP of 35W which could be useful given the size of the case 4. RAM: CORSAIR DOMINATOR Platinum Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 DRAM 3000MHz C15 memory kit (CMD32GX4M2B3000C15) I randomly selected this one on Amazon. Would you suggest anything else? 5. HD: Samsung 850 EVO 1TB 2.5-Inch SATA III Internal SSD (MZ-75E1T0B/AM) Also, randomly selected on Amazon. Should I go with M.2 disk instead? 6. Graphic: One of the Pascal series, either 1060, 1070 or 1080. I would certainly want to have the one which is most silent. As the case is fanless would it make sense to remove the fans and add heat sinks or this wouldn't work? Also, the case specification reads: Riser Card Required. Could someone send me a link what exactly this is? And this would be it. Am I missing anything here? Thanks and cheers!!!
  5. So I bought i7-7700 Kaby lake anf I am optimizing Windows 10 for audio performance. What I found online was the best way to use CPU was to set the power option to High Performance and min and max CPU to 100%. This would leave me with the CPU to work at 3.6GHz at all times. Intel updated speed shift to v2 with Kaby Lake, and I wondered if I should start using it i.e. will the CPU at constant base frequency work better/faster/smoother than with Speed Shift enabled? I am using this PC for Roon and HQPlayer.
  6. Hello everyone, I would like the discuss chaining the above equipments. Has anyone tried that already? I would like to replace my hq player naa with the sMS-200.
  7. Feel free to compare the following files: 1. Original CD rip: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0PU5LO5jVjfTUdrMGtRRkZuZkk 2. microRendu/LPS-1 digital output: HQPlayer (no DSP) on music server -> microRendu/LPS-1 -> AR-T Legato USB-to-spdif -> Tascam DA-3000 spdif input https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0PU5LO5jVjfUUFxcGs3TDFlclU 3. Phasure Mach II digital output: XXHighEnd (no DSP) on Phasure Mach II -> AR-T Legato USB-to-spdif -> Tascam DA-3000 spdif input https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0PU5LO5jVjfU1NkMXhWZTVUd1k I won't bias anyone's opinion by giving my thoughts... just yet. Enjoy! Mani.
  8. I haven't come across a thread focused specifically on feeding a microRendu with a signal from HQPlayer, so thought I'd start one (please let me know if there is one already - did a search, couldn't find one). I've run into a problem that I'm hoping someone can help me with. As I've mentioned in another thread, I’ve been playing around with the following setup: Roon -> HQPlayer -> microRendu -> iFi Nano DSD Most of my early listening was without using HQP’s filters or modulators and sending out ‘raw’ 16/44.1, just to get everything working properly. I had absolutely no problems, and everything worked perfectly. I then started applying some PCM to DSD conversion: I started with poly-sinc-2s and ASDM7 outputting 11.2896 MHz. This worked perfectly. I then changed ASDM7 to DSD7 256+fs. This sounded a bit better to me. Again, everything worked perfectly. I then changed poly-sinc-2s to poly-sinc. It took about 30 secs for playback to begin (my music server just has a lowly i3 CPU), but when it did, the SQ was transformed. Now it was very, very good! And this is where things started to go wrong. At the end of the track, the playback simply stopped. And I've not been able to get anything to work since: I closed Roon and tried to play directly from HQP – nothing worked. I closed HQP and restarted. I got the 'Failed to open audio device' error message. I started Roon and selected RoonReady in the Audio App Switcher in microRendu. RoonReady worked fine. I uninstalled and reinstalled HQP, and reselected NAA in the Audio App Switcher in microRendu. I still get the 'Failed to open audio device' error message. I have a feeling that the audio device (in my case, the iFi) is being hogged somewhere, but have no idea where or by what. Any ideas or thoughts would be most welcome. Cheers, Mani.

  10. ALAC does not seem to be supported by HQPlayer. Is this correct. Any plans to support ALAC?
  11. Hi. Mostly this question is to Miska. Is it possible to get high-fidelity output from HQPlayer via embedded HTTP server? Devialet Phantom can be trivially redirected to play an HTTP stream, with any supported format (FLAC/ALAC/WAV included). The DAC inside is TI PCM1798 and it should accept 192/24 input easily (in fact it plays such FLAC files). So question is whether it's possible to have HQPlayer have internal HTTP webserver which, when queried, answers with FLAC or raw WAV PCM stream at 192/24 such that HQPlayer upconversion can be enjoyed with Devialet Phantom? Thanks! P.S. link to Phantom HTTP redirection trick: Ongoing: Phantom/Dialog/Spark protocol deciphering and development - Page 2
  12. Hello, I'm interested in trying HQplayer and using my RPI2 as a NAA device. I tried finding answers to these questions but failed, I apologize if this is too basic... 1. Which version of the NAA demon suits the RPI2? Jessy? AMD? 2. Is there a way of controlling the HQplayer running on a windows server with an iOS app? Perhaps a third party one? Thanks you!
  13. I have been using an Octave II for some time and find it a superbly natural DAC, especially when fed upsampled PCM. I currently use Audirvana+ to do that, upsampling to the highest even multiple that the DAC/software supports (44 to 176, 96 to 192, etc.). I feed the DAC with USB routed thru an IFi Power their Gemini cable. I don't have a lot of time to experiment and haven't fiddled with this setup in some time, so I'd like to seek some advice on possible ways to get even better SQ. Would I get better results: - Going to HQPlayer? - Using a USB->SPDIF converter? - Using other settings in A+? Please explain if so. Thanks.
