EtherREGEN: Installation, Usage, Difficulty, Questions thread


Recommended Posts

I just realised I missed the whole thread!! Thanks for point this EEE issue to me ūüôā¬† I had connection dropouts twice in the first 48hrs but have not experience any more¬†connection dropouts without turning off EEE. Is this EEE issue suppose to affect the whole switch as I lost connections to all devices connected to the ER when it happened?¬†¬†¬†

Please just wait for the firmware update. We can not diagnose or predict what happens with EEE events for various systems. But we are rather confident that the new firmware will put this issue to bed.  Had some distractions but I'm nearly done with the instructions and will proceed with the roll-out plan as previously explained.

 

Thanks for your patience.

The first few days everything was perfect. Today Tidal has been cutting out. Surprisingly, Internet radio is perfect! Internet radio and Tidal both pass through the same cables and the switch. I am wondering if it is not a problem with Tidal?

Thanks @dminches & @rickca,

 

Not sure about the router part. But will disable EEE on the Endpoint as well if it drops again. Has played fine since my last post. So one dropout in 7 hours. WAY better than before.

 

Cheers,

Alan

 

Apologies for the OT update. Wake up to find that overnight my Roon server has tried to update to 1.7 and the update failed!! One day of stability and back firefighting!

I have finally bypassed the ER awaiting the fix.  Upgraded to Roon 1.7 and both Tidal/Qobuz have empty playlists and streaming fails on those tracks.  Connectivity issues every 1/2 hour.

I'll reboot my whole network again later because I want to listen tonight. Maybe Alex will surprise us today¬†ūüôŹ

Most of this is Roon 1.7 related - I've have similar problems and don't have an ER.

Yeah Roon forum is littered with 1.7 related issues.

 

I got mine working tho. AL2.1 and Roon1.7 conquered¬†ūüėĀ

I run Roon 1.7 and Qobuz with zero problems, seems that the problems with 1.7 only affects some setups. Played several hours last night with my eR connected no issues.

Main system
TAD D1000mk2, TAD M2500mk2, TAD CE-1, Ansuz Mainz 8 C2, Ansuz Darkz D-TC, 
Qobuz Studio -> Roon ROCK on NUC -> Uptone etherREGEN -> dCS Network Bridge -> AES/EBU -> DAC
HD Plex 200W PSU (4 rail for ISP fiber, router, etherREGEN and NUC)
 
Second system
Qobuz Studio -> Devialet Silver Phantom, Devialet Tree

Don't want to make this a Roon 1.7 thread, but Roon stopped working during the night (still burning in the eR), so any further information related to what folks think is attributable to the eR vs. the new OS would be helpful.  Last night the playlist was from my library.   Rebooted my DAC and Roon could see my DAC endpoint, so that makes me think the eR isn't involved.  Any suggestions?

 

So far Qobuz, when Roon is working, is fine and 1.7 features are absolutely great.

I suppose a good way to absolutely rule out the eR for those with Roon 1.7 issues is to swap the eR for the prior switch they were using.  By it's nature a switch is operating at hardware and portions of the IP stack well below the application level and should never affect what's happening at higher levels, let alone outside the device itself.

Bingo

 

Since empty playlists and songs not available in both streaming services are most likely network related, this will be a good test.

Listening in a familiar audio system is the proper way to evaluate the SQ effect one device has compared to another device. Measurement can be made for us to learn and make assumptions about why equipment A with lower phase noise for example sounds subjectively better than equipment B with higher phase noise. The correlation between SQ and measurements has first to be establish for a device before it can be used as any type of reference.

At some point John will have the measurements and the we‚Äôll release those with an understandable white paper (from which Sonore will benefit as well). Maybe you will be satisfied then. ¬†(By the way, I continue to recommend the Rendu series to clients more than a dozen times every year‚ÄĒyet have no measurements to back them up.¬†¬¨¬¨)

Until such time, please knock it off and stop crapping in this thread!

I'm happy to provide you measurements. I always reciprocate and recommend your products to customers.

Thanks, but I am not. I’m just trying to a business in a conscientious fashion and to keep up with the daily support, logistics, and production demands that come along with offering quality products that perform and are reasonably priced. Frankly, it is difficult and overwhelming sometimes, and I am approaching a crossroads where I have to consider hiring a non-production person to assist (mostly with parts procurement, inventory, accounting, and shipping logistics). Despite the success, there can be a lot of stress. 

 

This has to stop now!  From all sides.

Jesus and I have had a friendly relationship for several years. And even though we occasionally chafe with each other as we vie alternately for John’s engineering time, offline we have reached reasonable agreements. I’m not going to allow some fine points of product positioning get in the way of any of this.

And I sure as heck am not going to tolerate anyone‚ÄĒin the UpTone-sponsored forum‚ÄĒthrowing insults at anyone else.

Life is too short and my blood pressure is probably too high...o.O

I have been thinking about using Amazon and have applied for product SKUs as a test. 

 

My apologies Alex...I'm out.
