Sound quality when CAPS v3 Zuma is used as a generic server

Recommended Posts

I'd like to know if running other programs on the Zuma during playback will affect its performance as a music server (esp. sound quality). I'm thinking of server type programs like virtual machines, an SSH daemon, etc. I don't run any processing algorithms or effects on my music.


If so, would a viable solution be running all the server type stuff in a virtual machine, then shutting down that virtual machine when listening to music.


Kind of hard to justify plonking down that much money on so much processing power only to use it an hour a day...

If you are meaning running other services along side playing music; then that goes against the philosophy of the CAPS but other people do it with no issue.


The virtual machine idea sound a good idea... But don't use a virtual machine for the music playback make sure that happens on the "real" machine and keep everything else on a virtual machine.


Don't forget if you are running a virtual machine you may require a second OS license.





...in my opinion / experience...

While I agree "Everything may matter" working out what actually affects the sound is a trickier thing.

And I agree "Trust your ears" but equally don't allow them to fool you - trust them with a bit of skepticism.

keep your mind open... But mind your brain doesn't fall out.
