stefano_mbp,

 

5. BubbleUPnP with HQPlayer embedded while streaming Qobuz, no gapless.

 

HQPlayer on its own playing files from my drive works perfectly gapless.

 

  • HQPE & HAF 705.6/768 KHz 20 Bit PCM
  • Streaming Qobuz or files from external SSD
  • Switch -> Ethernet -> Sonore opticalModule -> Fiber -> Small Green Computer sonicTransporter i9 Optical
  • Switch -> Ethernet -> Sonore opticalModule -> Fiber -> Sonore Signature Rendu SE Optical -> USB -> Holo Audio KTE May
  • Goldpoint SA1X/47 -> XLR to Decware ZBIT -> RCA to Decware ZSTAGE25 -> RCA to Decware SE84UFO25 -> Avantgarde Duo Omega Horns

I tested on my older NUC5i5RYH and looks like it works, but extremely slowly.

 

I have reverted the build changes and went back to old school build and now it works again. You can try the new 4.22.2 release, should work...

 

Tried Debian 10 Buster 4.22.2-65

Working i7 8700 cannot do DSD256 7ECext2.

Can do DSD128 7ECext2 at 75% CPU usage.

So Debian Buster has no  comparable version with focal HQPe yet.

 

Yes, thanks to broken compiler shipped by Debian. OTOH, the old style build works on older CPUs too, so a good choice for someone seeking to use older CPUs, or some more recent Atom/Celeron/Pentium models that lack AVX2.

Where is gapless advertised

... gapless is an indispensable feature, a gapless missing sw is clearly ... incomplete and not acceptable... try to listen to Pink Floyd, any Opera, Goldberg Variations without gapless, you loose the joy of listening, at all

Use HQPlayer's library for that. Or some application that uses HQPlayer API for streaming instead of UPnP, like Roon for example.

 

I've told you before that it likely won't work as long as you stick to MinimServer.

 

I think someone had gapless working with LMS plugin to HQPlayer Embedded over UPnP. And I have it working with Audirvana (in conditions I mentioned).

 

Mind posting your HQPlayer settings?

but it doesn't work even with Audirvana and Euphony ....

and the library management of HQPlayer is .... let me say ...the worst I’ve ever seen ... album and artist only, no composer, no conductor, no work .... how can you browse a classical music library without those basic criteria?

Roon ... actually not my cup of tea for classical music ... tried it but even new 1.8 is a real headache for classical music: compositions appear in different ways, different syntax for the same work, Composers appear at least in two different syntax ... therefore focus function cannot retrieve all albums I’m searching for, some albums disappear from the library ... Roon is not, yet, good for classical music and therefore is an absurd cost given the current result

Of course it does work with Audirvana. I use it all the time playing to HQP Embedded UPnP input...

 

Jussi asked you to share all your HQP settings.

 

Share screenshots of your config page and your Audirvana settings.

 

More you share, easier it is to help. Less you share, it will be difficult to solve.

Of course there is composer, conductor, work etc at HQPlayer. Try for example searching by composer or conductor.

HQPlayer Embedded running on Nuc8i3/16GB ram Ubuntu 20.0.4.1 LTS

Audirvana running on MacBook Pro i7/16GB ram

gapless is faulty 1 track every 2 or 3 tracks, there is no fixed rule

.... playing from HQP Embedded library with the same configuration gapless is ok and plays without any problem

Hi miska and acatala

My Debian 10 for focal 4.19 build can do Buster HQPe 4.22.1 ! it  works perfectly!

i7 8700 can do DSD256 7EC-ext2 with ease, very good sound

as only 1.9G used ! Lots of space left for an Optane 16G.

Yes, it runs well on 9900K and some things may be faster. But what I've seen so far, the differences are small. And now both include the same GPU support too.

 

 

So now I only see one .deb option for latest release, right?

 

No longer 2 separate options?

Debian Buster if want to install Focal 4.19 HOPe one needs to install a series of dependencies, a painful and confusing process again...

So Buster HQPe 4.22.1 can drop CPU Usage by 30 % !

Great !!

But your Debian OS  needs to be installed with necessary dependencies.

Buster HOPe 4.22.1-63 is a milestone development with its DSP optimization it consumes much less resources.

If under a sonic wise kernel, yes kernel will also play a vital role in SQ, this HQPe will promise to have an excellent SQ !

For these systems like mine without AMD GPU I think it is the best choice !

Many thanks to miska !

Hi acatala ,

Are you using NUC HOPe -  Up Gateway USB NAA and Roon?

Do you play PCM --> DSD ?

If do you may need 4.22.1-63 with its DSP algorithm it can drop CPU by 30 % !

There are two, 4.22.2-65 and 4.22.2-66amd

 

Hi Jessica, 

 

Focal 4.22.2-65

 * Needs to install ROCm                  libraries?

 * Having DSP initialized cache          coverage 

 * Can drop CPU usage by 30           % for Intel CPU snd AMD CPU       system 

Is that correct ?
