  1. According to the guys at Roon, MQA support is coming and they've been waiting for MQA to provide some details to them because Roon works differently with these files than other programs.
  2. The mini is a solid device that would fit your system very well. Minimserver works really well with the mini, too.
  3. That's really good news. Really!
  4. Yes, just connect it to your DACA via USB or RCA and make sure in settings that the Lightning DS app is pointed to the correct DAC.
  5. DELETED. Sorry, don't want to give the wrong answer. I was answering based on the Aries, not the Mini.
  6. I think the main point here is that all of us are willing to help anyone who needs it. However when the answer, or the location to the answer has been given one or more times yet the exact same question continues to be asked by the same people, it's frustrating. I am moderately tech savvy, no genius and no fan boy, especially of Auralic. It's a fine product but not without its issues. They've come a long way in a short time. Bottom line, if you've looked where you've been pointed to and still don't understand, that's cool (at least with me). I'll try harder to get you to understand. If you tell me you looked at where you were told and don't understand a specific point, I get it. Sometimes even when you find the answer you may not know exactly what to do. But when our advice seems to go unheeded and without trying, it is frustrating and leads, through a forum setting at least, to the belief you aren't trying very hard. That may not be the case,. You may have gone to the support site, scoured the pages, and not found what you were looking for. But it doesn't appear that way from your replies.
  7. You can also access all the support pages directly through the Lightning DS App. Go to the setting button (the little wheel in the lower left hand corner), touch it, and then find the User's Guide under settings.
  8. You don't have to have a Tidal membership past the 1 free year included with the Mini. But yes, Roon is expensive and depending on your needs may not offer anything over the Auralic Lightning app that is free and should easily connect to your NAS.
  9. There is no PC or Mac interface or web browser interface at this time. You can only use the app on your iPad or iPhone. You can add Spotify or other services by following this guide: How to access my TIDAL / Qobuz / WiMP streaming account? – AURALIC LIMITED

    HQ Player

    I understand why that seems (is) strange. Something as a beta tester for Roon I was trying.

    HQ Player

    Jussi, DSD>PCM drops constantly using Roon build 99. And any combination under SDM drops out also during playback I have tried every possible combination. The only setting that plays without any major dropout issue is when I use PCM only. 2015 iMac>Pulse Infinity>roon>HQP 3.13beta2
  12. After playing around further with Roon and HQP since posting my issues a couple of weeks ago here I'm reporting back that with thre latest HQP update, 3.130beta1 and Roon Alpha build 98 I'm still experiencing dropouts when trying to get anything to play on SDM. No matter what filter, dither, sample, oversampling combination I try playback is never smooth. There are always dropouts. This does not happen with PCM settings. I'm in a 2015 iMac with 8gb of memory and CPU usage is around 30% when running both programs. HQP plays fine on its own at all settings, SDM or PCM. I really want this to work but just have worked so hard to try to figure out a way but to no avail. Before I chuck HQP, any more ideas from anyone? Jussi?
  13. In Roon go to Settings then click on the "About" link and it will tell you what version you have and if there's an update.
  14. You're welcome! You can always set up another drive with all of your music and have Lightning DS rescan that drive. You can put it in the same folder you originally set up or you can set up Lightning Server to point to a new path/folder.
  15. I believe you can only point the Lightning DS app to one path at a time. Multiple paths are not supported.
  16. Very good article on DAR, the video of Mr. Wang from Auralic explaining the 2.4 is informative. http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2016/01/coming-soon-auralic-lightning-ds-for-iphone/
  17. Did I miss something in that TAS article that isn't just regurgitated marketing hype from MQA? I have nothing against the technology but they took a big hit in my mind on the way they handled this rollout, or didn't handle the rollout.
  18. 3.0 is live. My Aries updated automatically. In setting click on your Aries and at the bottom it should tell you which firmware is installed. If it hasn't updated, try powering down the Aries and then back up again and see if you can refresh the option to check firmware.
