  1. Here is my just-completed build of a fanless silent music player. Components: - HDPLEX 2nd Gen H5 fanless chassis - HDPLEX HiFi 250W DC-ATX (nanoATX series) power converter - HDPLEX 160W AC-DC w/PFC (nanoATX series) PSU - Supermicro X11SAE-M uATX motherboard - Intel Xeon E3-1275 v5 CPU - 16GB DDR4-2133 memory - Samsung 950 Pro 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD - PPA v2 USB card This box will be used to run HQPlayer. Target OS is Windows 10. The M.2 SSD is a placeholder which will eventually be removed to make the box diskless, booting from a mounted iSCSI drive served by a silent NUC box acting as NAS and containing my music library. I'm also waiting for an HDPLEX 300W ATX linear PSU to arrive, and will be able to compare the sound between the above PSU setup and the 300W linear PSU.
  2. I take no pleasure in doing this, but I feel that it`s my duty to warn other enthusiasts. I ordered the top of the line fully assembled and set up musicserver from Paul Pang 08.01.2015. The server was payed in advance through Paypal as requested by PPA, and deliverytime was 30 days. After 10 weeks the server had not materialised, but I had received the external powersupply with transformers. The posersupply had damaged corners on frontplate when I received it. My mails regarding delivery was not answeared. I contacted Paypal to make a complain and claim my money back, after first sending mails to Paul Pang and informing what I felt I had to do. After some weeks I got the money back through Paypal. 18.06.2015 I contacted Paul Pang again and asked what happened, if he was well etc. He told me he had not been well, but he was ready to deliver a musicserver now. I ordered a musicserver again. 29.07.2015, after 5 weeks and several unansweared mails I received a tracking number for the package. I received the musicserver 04.08.2015. I was not able to play music through the PPA usb card, and the music disc came and went. When connecting dac to motherboard I was able to play music if musicdisc was in the mood. There was ore and more boot problems, and after a couple of days I was not able to boot the server at all. 10.08.2015 I returned the server to PPA for repair. 27.11.2015 after 7 weeks and lots of unansweared mails I received the server after rapair. After first boot and dac usb driver installation I was able to play music through the PPA usb card. Tha day after I was not able to play through PPA usb card, and there was a lot of boot problems. When connecting to usb on motherboard I was able to play if I managed to boot the server. The boot problems got worse and worse, and after a few weeks I was not able to boot the server at all. During these weeks I sent several mails to Paul what to do, but they where not answeared. I tried to install a fresh Windows 10 to see if I was able to boot, but after installing and startup I get the message "disc error". Can anyone help getting in contact with Pang? Does anyone have similar problems? Greateful for any help.
