New Server up and running

My new Acer Revo 3610 arrived yesterday. I put Ubuntu Server 9.10 on it with MPD. The build in optical SPDIF port worked right away and gives bit perfect out put in to my old DAC. I am using MPoD on my iPhone as a remote control. All working very well and easy to set up :-)

 

The Revo is essentially silent in operation, you can only hear the fan with your ear right against the box. The unit itself is tiny and fits neatly in alongside the amplifiers etc.

 

Just got to rip all those CD to FLAC now :-(

Now that I have had the new system running for a few days I can say that all is going very well apart from the wireless performance. The RF sensitivity of the Wi--Fi is very poor. At the same location my laptop reports 80% signal quality but the Revo only manages 35%. As a result of it seeing a low signal quality it tends to drop the connection quite a bit. A quick search on the internet reveals that this is a common problem. Looking inside the case the built in aerials are not that great and there is not any external connector for a better aerial.

 

I have ordered a Wi-Fi repeater to boost the signal strength in to my listening room. When the Revo has a good signal the Wi-Fi works just fine.
