  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
  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.

This has been the biggest mistake of my audiophile career. I was also convinced b
  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 - t
  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. [[email protected] ~]# ip addr show 1: lo: <LOOPBACK,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 65536 qdisc noqueue state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000 link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00 inet 127.0.0.1/8 scope host lo valid_lft forever
  16. Will do, thanks @luisma. Right now running Jussi's NAA image but will swap over soon.
  17. True, but Piero had OK'd 4GB of ram for headless Roonbridge with Ramroot... this could be an issue with NAA i guess. @hifi25nl Piero, do you know if 4GB ram is enough for NAA, with ramroot, using AL headless?
  18. Could well be the blacklisting. @luisma @AnotherSpin @hifi25nl thanks so much for the tips. I'll go back to a vanilla install and see if it works. How much RAM do you guys have on the NAA machine? I have only 4GB, wonder if enough for NAA (it is enough for roonbridge for sure). I use HQP desktop 3.25 not the embedded version. @luisma I had a multihomed setup for a while, Miska yelled at me for that. It was too much trouble so i quit using that and went back to waiting for EtherRegen lol.
  19. @hifi25nl Piero, Wondering if you could help with this. I've been enjoying Audiolinux on my NUC7i7DNBE greatly, and have been using Roon Bridge which always connects without any issues, 100% reliable. I used to love using HQplayer before I moved to Audiolinux. With audiolinux, switching to the NAA service, I keep getting dropped connections with my HQplayer computer which is connected to the same Brocade ICX6650 switch. It takes a while before the HQPlayer desktop program can recognize the AL NAA. I assumed this was a problem with HQP, so I posted in the HQP

    HQ Player

    I'm pretty excited for this too. I've been running a Threadripper 1950X which was the first machine I owned which could do DSD512 with the xtr- non2s filters. Now with this EC stuff that's another level...

    HQ Player

    Jussi, Thanks so much for recommending the NAA image. Is your NAA image different from HQPlayer OS? Is there a guide somewhere that I can refer to for basic things like what the login password is, what options I can set/optimize, how to load everything in RAM etc? I have the vanilla image running and it seems to have fixed the issue with the Audiolinux NAA dropping constantly. Will let it run overnight and see.

    HQ Player

    @Miska Need a bit of help Jussi. I'm still on the latest maint. release of HQP3 (need to test before I spring for HQP4). My NAA endpoint is a NUC7i7DNBE running Audiolinux, with the NAA service. HQP3 Desktop is running on a i7-7700k machine. These are connected through a Brocade ICX-6650 enterprise switch (I got this for 10G support for my other machines, but both NAA and HQP3 machines are on 1G Ethernet connections). Roon works great, very solid reliable connection. But when I try to connect HQP3 desktop to the Audiolinux NAA it is very flaky - I have to kee
  23. @luisma If you have not heard, the most recent new Amanero firmware release, 2006be10, appears to have fixed all outstanding noise, glitches and pops with DSD and switching formats. It does DSD512 on Linux pretty much perfectly now. I’ve been running it for 2 weeks straight. I was hesitant to say anything given the prior issues with his firmware updates but this appears to be the real deal!
  24. @EnjoyTheMusicNow I must strongly second your opinion. This was one of the first tweaks that gave a dramatic change in my system, bigger than changing DACs, servers or most of the other tweaks I’ve done. Better than running dedicated lines with Topaz xformer. I had my Tannoy Westminster GRs for 6 months before I got the (custom) podiums that Max made. Huge difference in the bass and mid bass. Got rid of all the unwanted direct room coupling. One of the best tweaks I’ve done. I have their stands under my REL G2s as well (temporarily off to optimize speaker placeme
