    OT: Share your hobbies beyond being an audiophile

    In the light of a recently retired, I propose another hobby: TIME! After having retired from a most demanding job in science full of a crammed agenda, meetings, project discussions, and lecturing, I am delighted to start a day without a fixed agenda, enjoying a good cup of coffee and reading the papers from A to Z. What a luxury of being able to drift into a day and ask myself what Iam going to do to make it a good day. I am fully enjoying this initial part of my retirement. I am fully aware that such a delightful state doesn‘t last for ever. I used to be a fanatic skier, but being away from skiing for more than 20 years, I dislike the ever growing industry around skiing: artificial snow, leveling out ski tracks, ever more ski lifts. And seeing the damage this development does to the fragile balance in the mountains, I totally refuse to go skiing again. Instead, I took up snow shoe hiking. What a delight to climb a mountain slowly and quietly and fully being immersed in the landscape! See the attached picture of my last tour in the central parts of Switzerland. I so much enjoyed my new activity, that I‘ll take up ski touring as my next endeavour. I keep thinking about filling my free time with more and more hobbies, so keep up the good suggestions in this thread!

    i downloaded from Microsoft MVLS the Windows server 2019, on that iso when you install you can choose between DC & STD in core or GUI version and its the latest version "SW_DVD9_Win_Server_STD_CORE_2019_64Bit_English_DC_STD_MLF_X21-96581.ISO"

    Fas42’s Stereo ‘Magic’

    No one else seems to manage your vanishing speakers trick, your hearing the recording thru such speakers there is no need for MCH trick etc etc. And you've been unable to show anyone else how to follow your path. It is the one and only Frank show and apparently only Frank can hear it.

    Big Apple Change?

    Trying to be optimistic about this, I've felt for some time I rarely rarely need 'big iron'. The computing power of my current and previous phone is plenty for almost everything I'll do. What I'd want is to have a table with my nice monitor, keyboard and mouse. Be able to walk up, lay my phone down, have everything connect and cast to the monitor. They are ways to do this now of course. But someone needs to develop a very good standard everyone could agree upon and implement it. To the point USB 2.0 was truly nearly universal for a few years, I'd like to see such a standard be almost everywhere on almost every portable device. The devices are powerful enough just not accessible enough for some purposes.

    Well, will try with different cables and different brands. Is it correct that DSD64 files do not play under mode DoP ?

    The improvement in sound you hear on datacenter vs standard I think is related to a newer img and newer files, REMEMBER THE SRV 2019 IS VERY NEW,, and still develops The first stable version var released in Jan 2019

    Your arguments are very weak, and very similar to those of the banned PV: Another #6 Now convince me you are not being paid to be a key opinion maker.

    Official Qobuz Issues Thread

    Whenever I flagged an upsampled album I just purchased was able to choose another one for free, so Qobuz customer service is doing fine. I’ve only had a handful of cases, some true upsampling, some just mislabeled, but I oäalso only buy classical and Jazz, and Most of the upsampled cases seem to concern classic rock remasters. I’d presume sure you could get your money back as well if you prefer.
  12. This is the only thing I have in AutoScript (I do not even have AutoScript.TSS). CLI(CLI_exec cp /mnt/sd*/sacd_extract_6200 /3rd_data) CLI(CLI_exec /3rd_data/sacd_extract_6200 -S &) The following is a working sequence. Inserting the USB stick before putting the player in sleep doesn't work. (debugging via telnet shows sacd_extract_6200 won't even start) Insert the power plug Open the tray & insert a disc Press the power button to put the player in sleep (with the quick start mode enabled) Insert the USB stick Run sacd_extract from a PC

    Big Apple Change?

    If the general idea is to be able to develop one app across all products, I wonder whether Apple intends to stop at laptops.

    Besides ultrasonics at various frequencies, is there anything else that signifies to you what the original resolution of a musical piece was?

    Yes i do i'll try to summarize it for you with my own words: - You can only change the edition "upwards", meaning you can go "up" from standard to datacenter, but not "down" from datacenter to standard - To see where you are/what you have enter Dism /Online /Get-CurrentEdition - To see where you can go enter Dism /Online /Get-TargetEditions - To actually change the Standard into Datacenter edition enter Dism /online /Set-Edition:<edition name> /AcceptEula /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX - So with a Standard Edition installed the command to change to Datacenter edition is: Dism /online /Set-Edition:ServerDatacenterCor /AcceptEula /ProductKey:XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX (Here you need to enter a valid Datacenter Product Key for this to work) - If you want to change edition on an already optimized system, don't forget to do a reset via ServiceTool first - All this is documented here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/manufacture/desktop/dism-windows-edition-servicing-command-line-options - The only difference between Standard and Datacenter is the licensing, otherwise both are identical bits and bytes wise. Datacenter in Server 2019 the only difference to standard is regarding to the virtualization rights. With one Datacenter license you are allowed to install one Hyper-V Host and run an unlimited number of virtual machines on it (Datacenter or Standard). In the older days there where more differences in terms of how many CPU's the OS supports and what the maximum RAM supported is, but with Server 2019 it all got the same (64 CPU's and 24TB of RAM): https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started-19/editions-comparison-19 If you need more help regarding this topic please start a new thread, this one here should focus on AO 3.00 beta

    Not Sure yet to tell you the truth, i need to listen a bit more. try it also if you can... one thing i can tell that made difference for me is to move from an on-board Ethernet to a USB 2 Ethernet adapter. i dont have a special SoTM network card because of lack of space in my HDPLEX case but because i had an issue in the beginning installing the on board lan i purchased the adapter and i was quite amazed with the difference. i also read this: http://www.runeaudio.com/forum/usb-to-ethernet-adapter-better-sound-than-ethernet-t3595.html
  19. Yes. Please give it a try if you are interested.
  20. So 2019 Datacenter Core Edition sound really better than the 2019 Standard Core Edition or do I miss something?

    USB cable comparisons

    My local store only had the 5S for sale. The Pro cables are not available in stores for consumers.

    Hi Peter, i also thought so. i started with 2019 data center and yesterday i installed STD version. still not clear to me...i also heard differences but i am not 100 percent sure because i played with process lasso. anyway, according to the version comparison here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/get-started-19/editions-comparison-19 theirs shouldn't be any difference, they are identical except hyper-v option and few non related items.
  26. At some point in week 8 2019, TIDAL made another change they are no longer posting FLAC versions of some albums recently added to their library-- only the MQA version available. I have tried in both Roon and Audirvana+ to play the FLAC version but to my dismay only one MQA version of the album is shown! TIDAL has never done this in the past and always made both the FLAC and MQA versions available. I am very annoyed by this and the only song I want to hear in MQA is ACϟDC's "Highway to Hell."

    VLANs and music streaming

    I just configured coincidentally this afternoon before noticing your thread a Cisco switch for the audio network, no vlans, just 1, connected the naa on port 1 and the HQPE on the last port 8 to keep the cables separated as much as possible, shutdown administratively all other ports, disabled http and http secure servers and other Cisco services like password encryption etc, now it occurs to me that maybe mtu should be kept small but at the risk of fragmentation or maybe not, honestly the SQ advantages should be in significant. Miska your multicast I haven't Wiresharked yet, is it tcp with buffering? 10 bytes or so per packet? To improve the stream? Gosh is late, I'm not making any sense here, good night everyone
