  1. The above post was written end of Jan 2020. It's now March 2020 and nothing has changed. Emails will get a random "I'll get back to you" and then nothing. Everyone please stay clear of this guy (or if he's a front for a bunch of scammers)...
  2. @Doh I posted this on another thread that @ASRMichael started, but I'll post it here to consolidate experiences: @ASRMichael I will second your warning to anyone who is thinking of buying anything from Adrian or The Linear Solution. Originally I was set on acquiring a Sean Jacobs PSU and had been finalizing negotiations with him (great guy to deal with) after the usual delays in communication with Paul Hynes, when another forum member here convinced me to go with TLS for their "Reference One" PSU which was supposed to be a SR7 killer (or at least similar in quality for a significantly shorter wait). This has been the biggest mistake of my audiophile career. I was also convinced by Austinpop's review of the DS-1 streamer to purchase the same DB-7 streamer that @ASRMichael ended up with. I ended up paying Adrian $5500 around November of 2018 for the DB-7 and the Ref One PSU. After a few months, I decided to go my own route to build the 7i7DNBE streamer with clocks from SOTM, and asked Adrian to switch the funds to a second Ref One PSU. He was agreeable with that. Everything went downhill after that. The PSU went through several iterations (as we were beta testers/guinea pigs) - he was charging SR7 prices for a PSU that he hadn't even fully developed. From my end, I did not receive a PSU until October of 2019, about 1 year after I paid him the cash. I only received one of two units. To Adrian's credit, the Ref One PSU that arrived did work, and it was somewhat better in quality that the HDPlex 100W unit I was using up to that time (not a challenging mark to hit). But it was not a huge leap forward; as I do not have an SR7 I could not compare, but I doubt it was at the same level. At that point, I decided to cut my losses and asked him for a refund. Every time a refund was mentioned, this resulted in email silence from Adrian. It's now the end of Jan 2020, 1 year and 3 months after I paid $5500 and he has stopped responding to my emails. I would steer well clear of anything having to do with TLS/The Linear Solution or Adrian Wun in any of his subsequent ventures.
  3. @Nenon I’m an idiot. Didn’t finish reading your post lol!! please give step by step clock mod instructions :))
  4. @Nenon the crosshair vii has bios flashback. No need for any cpu installed to flash to newest bios. I had to do it twice.

  6. Has anyone tried using the new StylusEP as a HQplayer "endpoint" for Roon Core yet? Again, no HQPlayer really involved, just a way to preserve Roon's library management and UI while getting the sonic advantage of Stylus. I basically cannot give up Roon's UI mostly so that the wife can stick with what she's used to, but would love to get some of Euphony's sonic advantages. I'm running Audiolinux now and would pay for a license if this StylusEP/HQplayer endpoint feature works (again without HQPlayer, just with Roon). I have a lot of DSD128 and DSD256 albums that I listen to a lot - the StylusEP with Squeezebox emulation doesn't work for me as that's only limited to DSD64. Thanks all!
  7. @shahed99 any updates in how your 3950X build worked with HQP? I see @teera_ash had some issues with pauses that weren’t there with 3700X...
  8. Hi all, Any updates on whether Euphony now supports now that just SMB1? SMB1 is a security risk that I've disabled throughout my network... that would be a big negative for Euphony if SMB1 is the only version it supports... Thanks!
  9. Weird. So every time I reboot on kernel 5.2.0 I have to manually reactivate Ethernet using up link set up enp2s0. That is very strange. @hifi25nl
  10. Never mind. Just had to do a manual activation of the Ethernet. Strangely it was set to off.
  11. Has anyone updated to the 5.2.0rt1 bfq kernel? I’ve done this twice and it kills my Ethernet port... no lights on Ethernet and I lose network connection after update. @hifi25nl any thoughts?
  12. @luisma Thanks for your suggestions. I will try this! I also updated the AL menu and all other components as well as the kernel. HQP still not seeing NAA reliably at all. Yeang
  13. Yes, what I meant was the update was successful. But it did not help the NAA connection problem
  14. @luisma the only blacklist i have in /etc/modprobe.d is blacklist snd_hda_intel I will try rebooting with this commented out.
  15. tried updating to newest kernel, no luck. @luisma here's the output you requested: [[email protected] ~]# networkctl IDX LINK TYPE OPERATIONAL SETUP 1 lo loopback carrier unmanaged 2 eno1 ether routable configured 2 links listed.
