  1. Hi Guys - This is pretty big news. I received a demonstration of this software at CES and was extremely impressed. The Roon Labs guys have built a software app that will challenge all existing apps. The ability to navigate one's music collection by almost any piece of metadata and to click on, for example, a mastering engineer and display all his/her music you own is so cool. It will support TIDAL as well and a host of other really cool stuff. I'm really looking forward to getting this asap. http://roonlabs.com Meridian Audio has announced that it has agreed a deal to transfer the company’s software applications business to a newly established entity, Roon Labs. Explaining the spin-out dealer Meridian CEO John Buchanan said ‘We entered the music streaming market in 2009 with the best-in-class music server combining Meridian’s legendary audio quality with the unique and intuitive user experience we had acquired with Sooloos. As the market for streaming products continues to boom, and with the introduction of higher quality music services, Meridian continues to grow its business in this area by investing in developing our award-winning range of high performance audio and home theatre products and focusing on the specific needs of music lovers and the dealers who serve them.’ Commenting on the future relationship between Meridian and Roon Labs, Buchanan said ‘Having fully absorbed the Sooloos experience into Meridian’s hardware product offering, this deal enables our software applications team to establish a separate company, to address specialist software requirements for other consumers. We are now two independent companies focused on our own successes but Meridian Audio and Roon Labs will continue to collaborate and work closely together into the future.’ Describing the vision for his new company, Roon Labs Co-Founder Enno Vandermeer said ‘Roon Labs produces software that lets music enthusiasts interact more deeply with their collections, by exploring the music, the people who composed, performed, and recorded it, and the multi-dimensional connections between them.’ Commenting further Vandermeer said ‘We are excited by the opportunity to reach a broader audience and support their choices, both in terms of music content and audio hardware. We look forward to making important partnership and product announcement to the market very soon.’ The transfer is effective from 1st February 2015. Meridian Audio retains the Sooloos brand name and the Cambridgeshire company remains fully committed to the award-winning Meridian Sooloos system – and its thousands of satisfied customers – including the ongoing development of new features, such as the recent system integration of TIDAL’s high fidelity music streaming service.

  3. I wonder if anyone either using Roon or HQPLAYER to upsample to 384 to a (Hugo) DAC via Raspberry Pi could check the following for me. Basically at this upsampling rate I get left to right speaker inversion. Totally reproducible and doesn't happen at any lower rate. It also doesn't happen with direct connection between PC and HUGO. Searching doesn't seem to come up with anyone else having this issue, I'm unsure whether it is due to an interaction between Hugo and Raspberry Pi or just a Pi issue as I have no other DAC to check. So I'd be obliged if anyone upsampling to 384 with Raspberry Pi can check if Ringo moves from left to right speaker or whatever track you have that will display the left to right inverted nature. Im using dietpi. 384 kernel activated. Thanks in advance. .sjb

  5. Hi All, After 2 frustrating attempts I've finally conquered Roon Attempt 1 - core installed on Dell XPS months ago. Could not get it to see my renderer for the life of me and threw in the towel Attempt 2 - installed again on XPS because my new DAC happened to be Roon Ready so figured it was worth a shot. Sound quality terrible tho and kept cutting out. Probably due to many factors including laptop noise, Windows not being optimised and sending over busy WiFi rather than wired. Saw enough in the whole Roon user experience to warrant attempt 3 and to my shock found it very easy to install it on my QNAP HS-251+ (2GB) NAS (running a 1 TB Samsung SSD). Setup is Roon Server on the NAS. Ethernet to the DAC via a switch. And using my Android phone as a control point. Sound quality is great! I'm also looking to add optical isolation to the ethernet path as per my previous post: So I've read all the stuff about Roon needing 4GB RAM. And clearly a lot of people here go to serious effort and expense to optimise there setups for Roon. So I guess I'm wondering if I should call it job done and sit back and enjoy. Or whether I'm missing anything. In terms of Roon functionality with just Server and Control point am I missing any UX? In terms of the all important SQ. So far it's sounding great to me. I've streamed my own Hi Res PCM Flac files flawlessly and Tidal Masters MQA. And this is on a £600 NAS/SSD option. So I'm wondering what a £1500/2000 dedicated server / fanless computer brings to the table? Same question for the Innuos / Melco and those sort of audiophile servers? Is it a pure SQ thing where on paper at least they outperform my QNAP? Or is it more options like being able to push via USB rather than pull via Ethernet? For the record I'm most likely to stick with the NAS. Unless of course you knowledgable folks can convince me there's a night and day difference and leave me with a dilemma Cheers, Alan
  6. 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.
  7. ROON and MQA news updates for Lumin Universal Audiophile Network Players and Systems. ROON is now part of the upgrade to Lumin <8.0> for all products D1, A1, T1, S1, U1. (The only thing left to do will be the L1 media library as a upnp device!). Roon is working well on our end with LUMIN products natively (not going through airplay). To use: 1. Have a computer running Roon core 2. Computer and LUMIN are on the same network 3. Roon app installed on the iPad 4. LUMIN/Roon running firmware 8.00+ It should work fine if all these are "yes". MQA: MQA ON LUMIN AS OF FEB. 23, 2017 1x = 16/44.1 Via Airplay bit perfect. Also: MQA at 24bit 48kHz is active In development for firmware updates. (Dates TBD but should be done by Q2/Q3 2017). 2x = 24/88.2 or 24/96 4x = 24/176 or 24/192 8x = 24/352 or 24/384 2x (or maximum 4x) is all that is really required from a technical point of view. Universal Music Group has now signed on with MQA, and their labels include: *** ECM, Interscope, Geffen, A&M, Capitol, Island, Def Jam, Decca, Verve, Blue Note, Virgin, and EMI *** Re: MQA now on Tidal For those using Lumin app, there should now be a Masters category under Tidal. If you don't see it, please kill the app and retry. You can also ‘tag’ MQA but does not yet give you the full MQA resolution (it down samples it to 24bit/48kHz for now), which is still an improvement over 16bit/44.1kHz . Lumin has full MQA support in the works, so we should see that in the near future. Additionally, MQA also plays bit perfect via airplay at 16bit/44.1.

  8. Looks like Roon V 1.3 may support Sonos endpoints. Great news for those of us that are invested in Sonos for secondary whole house systems. I've been using Roon on my primary system for over a year and love it so being able to also use it with SONOS is fabulous. https://community.roonlabs.com/t/roon-and-sonos-connect/2164/10

  10. Hi, I am brand new to the forum but have been reading furiously in the last few days. Just joined. I am very curious as to what you guys think of my plans, as well as advice and constructive criticism. I have built pc's countless times, but this is my first audio specific build that will be designed for high quality digital out. Okay into the meat of things. Here is the main use: My dad has an extremely nice stereo room in his basement and a very refined ear. The room is very acoustically pleasing and I am unsure of his current equipment because he is always switching between his favorites, but for any of you skeptics out there, the last set of speakers he owed and sold were a set of ATC SCM 150 Active Speakers in a custom birds-eye maple finish that were purchased by a recording studio in Nashville. Look them up if you are unfamiliar, made me well up with tears the first time I heard them running with tubes. Anyways, I have a huge collection of 'lossless' audio we would like to play on his stereo and my father has been interested in joining a service like tidal to stream lossless but currently has no dedicated equipment to handle these tasks. I have bought parts to build something to take on the challenge and hopefully please his ears. Motherboard: I prefer MSI motherboards. Also I wanted something with a low power consumption. Small form factor was also a goal initially (before I found out the size of my CPU cooler). I went with a mini ITX MSI H110i Pro AC. Will not be taking advantage of the wireless guys, I know better. I already have a ethernet cable run direct from the source through the wall to where the finished product will sit. https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/H110I-PRO-AC.html#hero-overview CPU: Low TDW for less heat Intel I5-6400T. This is decently powerful but also only consumes 35 watts maximum. It is compatible with the choices I have for software in the end and networking reliability is supposedly better on Intel for pulling from a NAS than any AMD equip. https://ark.intel.com/products/88187/Intel-Core-i5-6400T-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-2_80-GHz CPU Cooler: I forgot to mention that I would like a fanless design...well actually let's say no moving parts. I chose a huge Zalman FX70 cooler that should get the job done no problem. Completely passive and after some very enlightening talks with one of their engineers, I was assured that with my CPU this build would be very possible. ZALMAN - FX70 Memory: I had some newegg credit and found a really good deal on some highly rated 8gb stick so I just went with 16gb of Geil Evo Potenza. Also like that the memory has heat fins on the top to dissipate heat since I will not have fans. DDR4 EVO POTENZA DUAL CHANNEL Kit - Products - GeIL Memory Storage: I obviously want solid state for numerous reasons. I can use M2 with my motherboard but prefer 2.5" so I still have the ability to power it separately. I will only store the operating system on this most likely. I will stream predominantly and sometimes plug in with a separately powered external ssd drive. Since my collection won't be stored locally on this build, I did not need huge capacity and chose the Crucial MX300 525GB SSD which should be ample. Crucial MX300 525GB SATA 2.5" 7mm (with 9.5mm adapter) Internal SSD | CT525MX300SSD1 | Crucial.com Power Supply: For starters, my mini itx board does not take a direct 19.v input like most. It has standard ATX power. Additionally, I have a system that peaks at 86 Watts, so I don't need anything major. I considered linear first and got scared away by the cost being so high. Then I looked at picoPSU and found that some users experience noise introduction and scared away. I made a small mistake and bought a Seasonic 400w fanless PSU because of good reviews from fellow audiophiles, but then quickly became reluctant and cancelled the order and instead chose the HDPlex 100W Linear Power Supply coupled with the HDPlex 300W HiFi DC-ATX (NanoATX Series). The 400W version includes the ATX conversion but was just too expensive for me to justify. I additionally could have picked the HDPlex 160W DC-ATX but it did not include the audio specific capacitors that are used in the 300W Hifi unit. HDPLEX Fanless Linear Power Supply for PC Audio and CE device HDPLEX-300W-Hi-Fi-DC-ATX-Power-Supply (16V-24V Wide Range Voltage Input) DAC: We already own a Resonessence Concero HD which I am very pleased with. I will be using this for the heavy lifting. CONCERO HD - Resonessence Dacs - True Audio Clarity Case: Welp....you got me there. I have been unable to find something that I like. I have a friend who has a precision CNC machine though and he said we can design and build something with that to meet my needs exactly. I have put only a little though into it but I am thinking about bottom mounting the motherboard next to the LPS which will be internal. Have a roughly 14 inch long face, 10 inch deep sides, and a height of approx 8 inches. Just rough measurements. Cut the sides and base out of wood. Vent the sides nicely and use thin pieces. Have the back side cut for the ports and power. Stain the wood and put a power button on the front. Place half inch rubber nubs on the the corners on the open top. Have a piece of glass cut to size that sits on the rubber nubs. So it would be stained wood on 5 sides with venting and then a half inch top gap between the sides and the glass top to allow heat to rise out in all directions easily. Clear glass top to see components. Ideally have the top of the cpu cooler sitting a quarter inch or so away from the glass so its top is slightly visible from the sides of the box. It is a precision cnc so I can have it draw a logo into the front as well. My Questions: Is it good practice to simply run USB out to the DAC for power as well as digital audio or do I need to seriously consider getting a card that has S/PDIF out and powering the DAC from the wall or the HDPlex linear supply? How should I run the power? Please help here! Is Tidal streaming truly lossless? What software should I use? I need it to be controllable by phone or tablet. Once this pc is setup it will not have visible video out. The controlling of audio playback needs to be done on the phone or tablet. Also the interface needs to be pretty simple. I have seriously been considering roon labs because it seamlessly incorporates Tidal into the library and my dad will predominantly stream from Tidal if it is truly lossless. Should I be worried about clocking? Am I capable of Asynchronous USB? For the money I have spent (before DAC), is there a roon-ready recommended player that I can afford that will produce better quality? (around $1000) In the past I have only used usb out to a headphone DAC with an ASIO driver using foobar for playback. School me up people. Please help me along the way. I know some of you have been where I am at and now have a ton of experience to share.

  12. 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.

  20. Dear, A few months ago, I proposed to start an online petition to ask Devialet to do something about the AIR-problem. While a lot of people were enthusiastic, one of you reacted and proposed to explain to Devialet what I intended to do before starting the petition. I did that. I opened a case and explained what I intended to do. I also asked a very simple question : give me a PC-system (make and model) that will work. We are five months later now, and I haven't received a meaningful answer yet. At first they asked a lot of info : I used to be system and networks engineer so I provided them all the info, and more. After that : nothing. Three weeks ago, I again warned support that I would take action. Again I was promised a response, not a solution, but a response. Needless to say that no response materialized. Please click the line if you agree. If you have suggestions or remarks, please feel free. My intention is to post the petition at every review for the new products they will be announcing, something I've warned them about. If you want to get involved, send me a PM. I feel lonely I really wanted to avoid this : I simply want to be happy with my purchase, purchase a second one to upgrade the config etc. Thanks, George https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/devialet
  21. Hello, I'm considering two Roon/Tidal setups: 1. C.A.P.S Pipeline, as headless Roon core/output, Ipad controlled. Linux (Roon recommendation) or Win (Intelligent Platform Management Interface) or 2. Small PC as Roon core (e.g. Mac mini, Intel NUC) + Auralic Aries as Roon output, Ipad controlled. As I currently see it: Pro 1. Versatility, easier to repair in case of hardware failure, hardware upgradable, can be reused for other PC duties if replaced, one unit, can use HQPlayer (if I ever find out what to use this for) . 2. Optimized hardware, optimized software (upgradeable firmware), no unnecessary (noisy) hardware, has a remote for basic operations (e.g. skipping songs). Con 1. OS hassle/maintenance, not optimized entirely for hifi. 2. If hardware fails it is probably a complete unit loss, not exactly pretty, two units.

Dear valued Readers We'd like to proudly inform you about the new SOtM flagship product, the sMS-1000SQ Windows Edition with AudiophileOptimizer & Roon and take the chance to start the official thread in coordination with SOtM Audio and Chris Connaker. The SOtM sMS-1000SQ Windows Edition is a joint-venture between SOtM Audio & Highend-AudioPC. For this high-end music server we are using the already well-known SOtM sMS-1000SQ hardware and combine it with Windows Server 2012 R2 and our AudiophileOptimizer 2.00. We combined the excellent hardware of SOtM Audio with all the know-how about Windows Server and audio high-end audio optimization of ourselves to create a "ready-to-run" high-end music server. What came out in the end is truly spectacular! The Music Server comes with Windows Server 2012 R2 (Essentials Edition) as well as AudiophileOptimizer 2.00 pre-installed and pre-licensed. All Updates & RollUps of Windows Server are already installed as of July 2016. RoonServer is pre-installed as well as TIDAL, Foobar200, Qobuz, etc. On top of that the "AudiophileShell" is included as bonus. The AudiophileShell is a launcher Tool, it will make it very easy to launch your MediaPlayer, reboot or shutdown your music server, etc. By pressing "I" (a hidden option) the AudiophileShell will configure itself as Shell Replacement. The image SOtM is using to deploy the music servers is made by Highend-AudioPC from A-Z, so you can be assured you'll get the very best installation of Windows Server possible. Alternatively you can choose between two software variants, the standard variant has no Media Players pre-installed and the second variant comes with RoonServer, TIDAL, Qobuz, Foobar2000, etc. pre-installed (only trial versions of the media players). The unit is available in two colors (silver & black) and three different hardware variants: USB, Analog & Digital. The USB version comes with a tX-USBexp based USB output. The digital version comes with AES/EBU, Coaxial, Optical and tX-USBexp based USB output. The analog version features balanced and single ended outputs as well as the tX-USBexp based USB output. You can choose between various combinations of SSD's and hard disks, ranging from 32Gb SSD for the OS up to 4TB HDD for music storage. An Ultra Low Noise Clock-Upgrade (SuperClock based on sCLK-2224) is available as well for all three editions.

  23. All, I have been in contact with the folks at Roon, urging them to add a dithered volume control as found in Amarra, Pure Music, HQ Player, Audirvana, etc (the current Roon volume truncates bits). They said they are open to it but need to hear from users in the Feature Requests forum in the Roon support forums. I have posted there in a thread that had already been started by others. Please take a minute to quickly post that you would also like this feature (if you're a Roon user, you can sign up to use the forums with your existing username and password). The thread is here: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/dithered-volume-control/5427/11

ROON transforms files and streams into a music collection that you can enjoy everywhere. Most people have ripped CDs, downloads and streaming services across multiple devise and users. ROON brings it all into a single music experience beautifully connected by rich images and a host of information.

You can even use Focus Mode to organize your collection in different ways based on how you want to view it. All of these features provide Audiophile quality playback, with Direct Path and Signal Mode features. From earbuds to Hi-Fi DACs to network players, listen in one room or around the house with AirPlay, with more streaming formats to come. It runs on a windows computer or Mac, with the capability to be controlled from another computer or tablet (android or iPad). Not only does ROON do all of these things, but also does so while providing an amazing user experience that is both intuitive and visually stunning. We’re really digging ROON and even more excited to offer you a lifetime subscription for 25% off, 50% off or even completely FREE with the purchase of one of the following DACs or any component we sell (some restrictions apply). These offers are a great way to get into computer audio or to take your existing digital playback system to the next level. Recommended 25% off ROON offers* Ayre Codex DAC/headphone amp/preamp The Ayre Codex can blend seamlessly between working as a stand-alone DAC, DAC/Preamp combination, or Headphone Amplifier/DAC. It’s got a sleek casing that is filled with Ayre’s latest technologies that allow the versatility of being used as a serious home stereo set-up or a basic desktop headphone system. The Codex also features a high-quality analog power supply, which is almost unheard of at this price. The Codex offers an outstanding value that is sure to impresses even the toughest critic. All of its features and versatility make the Codex a perfect fit for ROON. Auralic Vega DAC The Auralic Vega is a wonderful Digital Audio Processor t has Flexible Filter Mode, which has six built-in modes, a linear phase filter, a minimum phase filter, a slow roll-off filter, and several noise filters for native DSD conversion. To maximum usage of these filters, VEGA lets you customize according to different formats, tuning sound best to personal preference. The VEGA also has the Femto Master Clock. This gives the DAC and Up-Sampling circuit an ultimate clock with minimized jitter and low phase noise. It utilizes a crystal oscillator that is aerospace quality, and generates a master clock with extremely low jitter at 82 femtoseconds by also using an ultra-low noise linear power supply and temperature compensation technology. Recommended 50% off ROON offers* Luxman DA-06 DAC “The music made by the Luxman DA-06 is rich, resolute, refined, and oh so smooth. Regardless of my music’s pedigree, I found myself enjoying entire album’s worth upon album’s worth, getting sucked into their sounds and moods to the point of being completely lost in tunes. I cannot think of a higher compliment to pay a piece of hi-fi gear.” - Michael Lavorgna, Audiostream June 2013 (Full Review here) Luxman’s DA-06 DAC is one fine piece of gear and one of the most musical we offer at any price. Advancing the state of the art, the Luxman DA-06 can handle up to 24/192 though its AES and S/PDIF inputs, and up to 2x DSD via USB and there are user-selectable filters for both PCM and DSD. Digital inputs are upsampled and processed at 32/384 and there are USB, SPDIF, AES/EBU and Toslink inputs on the back. DSD files played back on the Luxman DA-06 have a musicality and fluidity that we rarely hear from digital playback ever before. Its smooth and rich presentation is never etched or harsh. We can listen to this piece for hours and hours without the slightest hint of listening fatigue. Bricasti M1 USB DAC “The Bricasti M1 USB DAC is a state-of-the-art design offering impeccable performance and a wide selection of digital reconstruction filters so that you can fine tune its performance to both your preference and the personality of your system.” - Frank Berryman, Ultra High End Review The Bricasti M1 digital to analog converter is a dual mono design; there are two completely isolated channels, each with its own dedicated linear power supply, D/A converter, DDS clocking, and analog circuitry. This design insures that analog cross talk is virtually non-existent, that the necessary power requirements for each channel are well met and isolated from each other and the digital processing is isolated, having its own power supply. With their twin DAC design, using the stereo ADI 1955 D/A converter in a mono configuration optimizes the dynamic range for each channel. The M1 also includes Bricasti's own proprietary filter technology, further opening new territory with what is achievable in a modern D/A reference. Recommended FREE ROON offers* Berkeley Audio Design Alpha DAC RS "The Berkeley Audio Alpha DAC Reference redefines what we can expect from digital playback" - Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound The Berkeley Audio Design Alpha DAC Reference Series (RS) is easily one of the top performing DACs in todays very crowded market. Let’s face it, as good as hi-res files can sound, most of our collections are made up of standard Red Book (16/44.1) files. This is where this DAC shines above the rest. By using multiple filter options and ultra-low phase noise precision clocking, it has the ability to extract every last detail and nuance of the performance. EMM Labs DAC2X “The updated DAC2X may provide the best DSD playback I can remember hearing in my system, but it also shines with PCM as well." - Chris Connaker, computeraudiophile.com (Full Review Here) Re-introducing the EMM Labs DAC2X – built with the award winning reference technology in the XDS1. The DAC2X features the latest generation MDAT2™ up-converting DSP, MFAST™ jitter removal system, MCLK™ master clock and Ed Meitner’s hand built 5.6Mhz proprietary discrete dual differential D-to-A converters. MDAT2™ works by taking all digital audio (PCM and DSD) and does real-time transient filtering and up-conversion to 2xDSD (5.6Mhz/6.1Mhz) before being sent to Ed`s proprietary custom made 2xDSD (5.6Mhz/6.1Mhz) DACs (MDAC modules) for conversion to analog. *Please note that these special offers with Roon cannot be combined with any other offer.
