  1. Have you considered ifi Audio? They have a wide range of DAC’s with hp amps. Also have a good reputation for quality products at reasonable prices, similar to Schiit.
  2. I was monitoring the network traffic as the last track finished up and there was a continuous small amount of inbound (RX) traffic until maybe 5 -10 seconds before the track ended then the traffic dropped to basically nothing. So it appears that a chuck of the file is loaded (buffered) well before it starts playing (thus the spike) then a constant stream after that.
  3. Here is a graph of data traffic for my Ubuntu Studio 20.04 server running HQP Desktop and Roon Server. I have a Intel X520-DA1 fiber optic card installed running at 10Gbe and connected to a 10Gbe port on my Mikrotik switch. My opticalRendu (HQP NAA) is connected to the same switch running at 1Gbe. Music files are stored on a NAS. There is definitely a spike when it loads a new track. RX=top line TX=bottom line. The spike occurs several seconds before the new track actually plays.
  4. Welcome to AS!! There are lots of discussions on network gear and approaches currently running on different threads. Probably need to get a sense of each thread says and narrow down what you think is best for you ... not an easy task. That said, I would recommend starting at your music system components and looking back upstream rather starting at your router and looking downstream. The reason is that you want to create the best network environment as possible just before the signal hits your music system (streamer, DAC, etc.). There are a lot of things that can happen
  5. There are two HQPlayer “consumer” versions (Desktop & Embeded) that are real-time resampling only. I use HQP Desktop to convert all files to DSD256 format before file is sent to my DAC. The value of HQP is the ability to use a powerful computer to convert files to various formats using a wide select of filters and modulators. DAC’s just don’t have the same processing power to do the same. HQPlayer Pro is more for “professional” users that allows offline processing so that the new file can be saved. I assume it can do real-time as well but perhaps you can ask the dev
  6. I asked Miska the same question about HQP Desktop on Ubuntu Studio 20.04 LTS and never got a reply. Another member did respond that they had been running HQP on 20.04 for several weeks (months) without any issues so I went ahead and upgraded to 20.04 a few days ago and have not had any issues.
  7. Besides the advice above, you need to set “Default Output Mode” to “PCM” in the Settings panel. This will force HQP to ALWAYS output PCM regardless of the source file.
  8. The Sonore guys don’t follow AS threads any longer so you might want to post something on their support forum. Sounds like you either have a bad oR or power supply. Have you tried another power supply?

    Thanks! Upgrade done. HQP Desktop and Roon server appear to be running ok. I will give it all a try later today.

    @MiskaI see that Ubuntu 20.04 LTS is now available. Do you recommend upgrading or staying at 18.04?
  11. Supporting 100 speed seems to indicate that you could now place this new oM between the etherREGEN (b-side out at 100 speed) and an opticalRendu. Currently, you have to switch the eR around so the a-side connects to the oR via the SFP connection which means you "lose" the use of the a-side Ethernet ports.
