    Are you sure your DAC supports 48k rates? Lots do not thus the reason for the “48k DSD” checkbox. Might try unchecking it and see what happens.
  2. The TP-Link MC220L should work. I have used these in the past in various fiber optic configurations and they always worked although you may have try both the “force” and “auto” switch settings.
  3. Do a Google search, lots of examples online. That is how I learned.
  4. You probably need to add a line to the /etc/fstab file to tell Ubuntu what, where and how to mount your external drive. That is what I did to mount my NAS.
  5. In that price range, start with Schiit, iFi and Topping.
  6. There are several companies selling full assembled Hypex and Purifi amps: Nord, Apollon, VTV to name a few.
  7. This listing is completed.

    Andrew at Small Green Computer built this custom fanless music server in Nov 2014. It was used as my main music server running HQP Desktop and Roon Core Server until about a year ago when I updated my music server. CPU: Intel i5 quad-core RAM: 16GB SSD: 64GB Power: external power supply, when in service a HD Plex LPS was used, included in this sell is the original SMPS brick (brick has a loose piece internally - shake the brick and hear a rattle - that said, it does work properly) OS: Ubuntu Studio 20.04 (recently upgraded) Software: HQP Desktop 4.8.1 (license is NOT included) Cooling: fanless (heatpipes) Case: Perfect Hometheater FLM-7 (black), there are a few very small scratches When in service, I had an Intel X520-DA1 NIC (not included) installed so you could use it as a HQP NAA with fiber optic input, similar to a Sonore opticalRendu. Price ($200) includes PayPal fees and shipping to CONUS.

  9. For Fiber Ethernet Converter, are you thinking about some like the TP Link MC220L? If so, then the Sonore opticalModule Deluxe does the same thing, it is just a higher-end device in terms of price and performance (better SQ can be achieved). Another product that has been getting rave reviews is the Uptone EtherREGEN which is a high-end switch. There are several threads here on AS that discuss the EtherREGEN if you are interested. Another Sonore product is the opticalRendu which can be used a Roon endpoint. It has a fiber port so no need to use a converter from fiber to
  10. Sorry for the delay appreciate your answer, been struggling with my wireless speaker purchase!! Still looking for a 21century remote and support.

  11. I have the Holo Cyan (DSD only version). No idea how it stacks up to the other Holo DACs but I prefer it over my Twisted Pear Buffalo III DAC.
  12. Since no one has replied, I will give it go. Perhaps you could post a sketch on your setup as it is not clear to me what you are doing. Also, include a photo (screen capture) of you HQP main panel as well as the Settings panel. Picture is worth a thousand words as they say. You may already know this, but in general, you have a server that is running HQP Desktop or Embedded and then a smaller, low noise computer running the HQP NAA software. The server needs to have a decent amount of processing power to handle the conversions, upsampling, etc. whereas the smaller NAA co

    The USB device for your DAC may or may not be powered from the 5V source (computer). In one of my DAC's, the USB board is powered internally as part of the DAC's power supply. I can block (disconnect) the 5V power lead in the USB cable and everything works. Alternatively, I could remove the internal power and have it powered by the incoming 5V cable. For other DAC's, the USB board is only powered by the incoming 5V lead. There is no internal power source powering the board. For some reason, when you switch sources, the USB connect is being interrupted. Not s

    Do you have “Default Output Mode” on the Settings panel set to SDM (DSD)? That is how you do it with v4, don’t recall how you did it at v3.
