  1. I was just searching over internet and I have discovered that PS Audio use (MQA Certified) conversdigital module in their Bridge II. If I'm not wrong, this is the way PS Audio use to decode MQA. Not in the DAC itself but in the renderer. Does this open new possibilities to decode MQA without changing the DAC? Could they be available in the future a sort of MQA-enabled Renderer that unfold and decode the MQA file and pass it to the DAC? Regards,
  2. What distinguishes the Bricasti M5 from Aurender, Lumin, Auralic players is it not only accepts DSD(128) FLAC but video files, like MKV, HT 'audience' has a serious player Linear Power supply inside, even for the USB output, nice. In comparing the Sonore Signature price, the one box Bricasti is 1/3rd advantage. Even if you went the discrete route of a SMS-200/uRendu/LPS1 and other power supplies, the M5 is looking more like a real competitor. Since it a renderer only, there's no major special quirky software tie in's to work with, other than players themselves which you need anyway, duh. Works with Jriver, Audirvana+ and Roon directly. Outputs are USB, RCA S/PDIF (BNC optional), AES3. According to Audiostream it's priced at USD2400.
  3. The exceptional Sonore Micro Rendu in "as new" condition with original box and USB A-to-B link. NO POWER SUPPLY. The micro rendu requires an external power supply- many different choices and price ranges available from others. Roon ready. See http://www.sonore.us/microRendu.html List $640.00. Sell for $540 via PayPal and will include shipping in US.
  4. Excellent condition (including original packing), with latest updates and working perfectly. Fine sound and ease of use. ExaSound e22 DAC Mk 2 £1950/$2500 (UK price new £3500) ExaSound PlayPoint Network player £1050/$1350 (UK price new £1995) The complete solution: buy both e22 and PlayPoint for £2500/$3250 (UK £ price new £5495) Reason for selling is to economise by selling my second system.

  9. 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!
  10. Hello, I am fairly new here... well, I have mostly been "listening" only (thank you for all your knowledge). I am currently searching for a good solution to quickly play audio that sounds great. That's really what my main goal is. I am tired of always having to turn on the computer, login, open programs... you get the picture. A few month ago I bought a used DAT machine to listen to my old DAT tapes. It was a lot of fun and I eventually made some "mix tapes". This really drove me into this whole dilemma... I would love something that is just like the DAT machine, which is ready in 3 seconds, and plays music in 4. But I want it without the winding of tape... I have lots of music on a file server, mostly CD-quality FLAC, and also some high-res stuff. It would probably make more sense to look for a good network player than to choose an SD card player (e.g. Denon DN-500R) or hard disk player (e.g. Korg MR-2000S). I don't really have to have the recording capability, it would be a nice plus though (e.g. Tascam DA-3000). Support for DSD would be great, but "only" 24/192khz PCM would be fine too. So I discovered the Technics ST C700, which has most of everything I want. But I wanted to ask here to see if anybody has any experience with it, or any similar suggestions. Here a list of "must have": - Fast boot-up - Front panel display that displays good amount of info - Front panel buttons (e.g. operable without remote or smart-phone) - Fast user interface (I have seen Pioneer's, which seems very sluggish) - DLNA or SMB capable (e.g. access music on file server) - Good sounding DAC - At least 24bit/192khz PCM support, preferable also DSD An nice extra feature would be recording capability, but that's not really a "must have". What I particularly like about the Technics is, that I could also use it as a USB-DAC for my PC. Not many network players seem have this option. Or should I just become aguinea pig for all of us here and buy the Technics now? Thanks in advance.
  11. Hi all, long long time lurker but this is my first post. So, hopefully this isn't something previously addressed...I couldn't find it. Question: Is there as way to search for artists alphabetically on the N-50 without scrolling through the whole list of artists? I use the remote and the android Control App. This is extremely frustrating to me and I can't find anyone else asking the same question, which makes me think I'm doing something wrong. Someone else would surely have addressed this by now. For further info on the question you can read on. I bought an N-50 for my secondary system just to be able to access files in my living room (not my main listening space). Anyway, one of the big reasons for this is to get my GF to use the music collection more through the decent system instead of sticking her ipod with a bunch of 128 files on it on a cheap clock/dock...you probably know the scenario. Anyway, one of my frustrations with computer audio has been getting it to a point that a non-enthusiast can (and will want to) use it. I had a squeeze box and I wanted to throw it out the window so you can imagine, the GF never went near it. So I read good things about the N-50 and it seems really easy to use so far (even to plug her poorly loaded ipod into) but when using it as a music server, I seem to only be able to search for artist by a painstaking and agonizingly slow SCROLL through all the artists in my collection (833). If I wanted to play The Shins it'd take me 8 minutes to get to them. I can use playlists from my DLNA server which happens to be JRiver MC18 and that is really helpful...but not for her. She is not going to go create playlists on my computer then go listen to them. So is there as way to search for artists alphabetically without scrolling through the whole list of artists? Thanks!
