pedroboe posted a topic in Music Downloads & StreamingHi All I am new and this is my first post. Been an audiophilia nervosa sufferer for a while. I recently aquired a Pioneer N50a directly from Japan and all is well (albeit with a transformer here in NYC). Previously, I had used slim devices, so I am fairly familiar with streaming. I do not understand the heavy computer dialects but I have a retired engineer neighbor who does and bails me out once in a while. Anyway, here is the issue: I am streaming from the Pioneer through three libraries: my Lenovo computer with Win8 using JRiver 20, a WD My CLoud single drive connected to ethernet for backup and the main library or ripped content goes to a WD MYcloud Mirror drive with 6T. Everything works, at least %95 of the time. No issues. All files are streaming including DSD, from day one, even without exploring JRIVER settings. BUT! I recently bought and downloaded an album of Manfred Honneck with the Pittsburgh Symphony, playing Strauss TOne Poems and I am not able to play them no matter what. I have downloaded other DSD albums from HDtracks, Acoustic sounds, etc. I can stream them all: Shelby Lynn, Boston, Eiji Oue, etc. The Pioneer gives a "unspecifed error" message. It doesn't even tell me that it can't play the file. I tried converting them in JRiver, but nothing works. I read the wiki. I was able to play at least one of them in the computer using Jriver but I can't replicate it now. I contacted the seller. They allowed me to redownload, in case that there was corruption. Not working either. My neighbor was able to convert them to 24/192 for me using audiorvana. I can play them, glad I can hear the performance and a great one it is. At this point I have gone in big circles changing the settings for the output format, encoder, blah blah. I am not sure if I did more harm than good...But this was an expensive album and I am wondering if there is a particular thread about this album...Has anyone experienced this? I am also ripping to DSD 64 using JRIver and the Pioneer plays them fine. Many thanks and happy holidays to all Pedro Diaz
