SOTM SMS200 Buggy, Help Needed

Recommended Posts

My front end is Sonore Sonic Transporter I5, SMS-200 Ultra and Uptone Ultraregen, all going into a Exogal Comet DAC. I use strictly Roon. 


I generally leave everything powered on. From one day to the next I'm constantly losing the SMS-200 "zone" in Roon. 


And then commences an eleborate turn this off, turn that off, turn this back on, etc. game until Roon finds the SMS-200 again


Is there a way to make the SMS-200 quit going buggy all the time??? For example, always turn off the SMS-200 and Ultraregen?


I've even burned new software images onto the SMS-200 SD card to no avail. I suspect the SMS-200 doesn't like the Ultraregen, but that's too bad because the Ultraregen does provide a sonic benefit ...


This bugginess is driving me up the wall ...

Hi Greg,


I have a very similar set up (sMS-200 Ultra Neo via the Uptone EtherRegen) and have been experiencing the same repeated drop-outs.
Restarting the Neo usually worked, and if not as your experience, everything else I could think of - this also usually fixed the problem.

Yesterday that stopped working. A series of sd restores (different sd cards & firmware versions) failed as well. I also swapped out the EtherRegen for another network switch. Currently, I can see every device on my home network except the Neo. 


I've dropped May @ SoTM an email, I'll let you know what happens.

Is it possible your router has multicast disabled? I had a problem like you describe with an Aries mini and that was the cause.
