  1. Please have a look here (first pic): https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55916-euphony-os-wstylus-player-setup-and-issues-thread/page/16/?tab=comments#comment-971780 It is a cpu with 6 physical cores. HT is activated.
  2. Ok, now it works! After a reboot of both machines. The DAC appears in the setting of the StylusEP machine (of course). The Stylus server machine gives the message out: no audio-output active but it works! Thanks for mentioning about this distributed mode. It sounds very promising.
  3. Hmm.. distributed mode? I have tried this (Stylus on the server and StylusEP on the NUC endpoint) but Stylus doesn't "see" the StylusEP. Stylus must support the Squeezebox protocol for this mode I guess? What does work is Stylus plus HQPlayer on the server and Networkaudio activated on the NUC. And it sounds to my ears better than standalone. I have the cheap NUC7CJYH only with the original ps. What will happen if I buy a NUC7i7DNBE (and a Keces P8)? I wonder.
  4. I see. I am lazy a bit this summer. I will give GentooPlayer another try in September after my vacation. The good thing about the cost is the Euphony Endpoint License. Same here. That's really a plus point. Audiolinux takes ages to load into RAM. Euphony seems to be faster but no comparison to GentooPlayer or Jussi's NAA image. I have two other 32GB Optane sticks here for the server. One is reserved for Audiolinux and one for Windows Server 2019. With my current ASRock board I can swap them quick. With my former Gigabyte H110N the m.2 slot was on the bottom of the board. I think I will remain using USB sticks for the endpoint. Haha, I feel (and so Euphony's design) reminded of Daphile and oops: I already forgot about the yellow color of AL. I was using more the headless version. I like that you can open the Euphony side with whatever you want: tablet, smartphone... I appreciate this kind of comfort. Not sure about the influencing thing.. lol
  5. Do you still have your GentooPlayer USB stick? I had abandoned the NUC-as-endpoint-thing when I bought the Matrix Element H card for my server (Euphony) but then because I am still not really convinced of this card I have reactivated my NUC7CJYH (not possible to put an m.2 drive there) one-two weeks ago as NAA (Audiolinux ramroot) and now I use it as NAA with Euphony (trial) root loaded to RAM. This dual pc setup seemed to sound better to my ears already with AL and now with Euphony and activated Networkaudio, too. I guess I will have to buy a NUC7i7DNBE. Before making a final conclusion about using AL or Euphony with the NUC as endpoint I would like to try GentooPlayer again but run out of USB sticks at the moment. From my memory GentooPlayer gave me the most listening pleasure compared to AL or Jussi's NAA image. Maybe because of Alsa 1.0.29?
  6. If you want to install the trial on ssd/hdd you find Nenon's method here: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55916-euphony-os-wstylus-player-setup-and-issues-thread/page/15/?tab=comments#comment-969660 Mine is here: https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55916-euphony-os-wstylus-player-setup-and-issues-thread/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-941032
  7. 1. The Mutec should work without the need to install anything. Euphony is based on Archlinux. 2. Yes. 3. Hmm.. I had a Windows Server 2019 core installation on my former computer (I should update my signature!). Indeed I would recommend to update from WS 2012 to WS 2019. The installation is much more convenient now with AO 3.0 (thanks to Phil). Well, testing Euphony on that former computer animated me to build a new one, more powerful and to purchase the Euphony license. I don't use the Stylus player. I am more into the Roon/HQPlayer tandem. The plan is to make a WS 2019 core installation on this new computer (Intel i7-8700, ASRock Z390m-itx/ac, 16GB RAM, 32GB Optane drive). I want to give JPlay Femto another try. I found it pretty impressing. And besides I want to try Audiolinux again. I already have bought two more 32GB Optane drives. About results.. hmm.. I found WS 2019 in core mode with AO 3.0 beta, Fidelizer, Roon, HQPlayer and JPlay Femto trial great on my former system. But then to my surprise I was surprised by this Euphony! So much that I opened my wallet.
  8. I fear there is no such guide. You don't have full access to the HQPe settings with Euphony. You could open a ticket and ask Zejlko to make the access to the HQPe web interface possible.
  9. There were two updates in July. uname -r gives out: 4.18.7-rt5-3-rt-bfq
  10. Yes, I can not edit the rtirq.conf file with audiouser/euphony.
  11. Wow! It works! It seems I have missed that or the manual at all.. lol 🤔 Thank you! 🙂
  12. Oops..it musst be sudo nano rtirq.conf
  13. Maybe. It is up to you to find out. Why not sending a request to Željko? I would like to hear the opinions of other users of such PCIe-USB cards.
  14. Hi Bob, I have the same card in use and already wanted to write about that much earlier.. Some food for thought: Euphony and Audiolinux give realtime priority for usb by default. That means priority for the irqs of the mainboard usb ports. When you use such a USB 3.0 PCIe card there is a different irq in use. It is easy to find out about that with Audiolinux. The Matrix card is using irq16 on my system. No matter if with my Gigabyte H110N mainboard before or now with a ASRock Z390M-ITX/ac. It's no special thing to change the rtirq.conf on Audiolinux. On Euphony I found a way with help of booting an Ubuntu Live USB drive and then mounting the both Euphony partitions to replace usb by i801_smb (browsing into /etc folder and opening a terminal window there: sudo nano rtirc.conf). Of course, a more convenient way is to ask Željko to change the both rtirq.conf files. I already had a conversation with him about this and he offered to make this changes via remote control. The not so nice thing is you must repeat these changes after each new version of Euphony. The installation of a new version overwrites the rtirq.conf files. But well it keeps the braincells awake. I *think* giving more rt priority to the irq16 really brings *something*. At least the good feeling that you don't waste rt priority for usb ports that are not in use. 🙂 Mario The Matrix card is using the irq16 Audiolinux rt priority by default (with my former Gigabyte board) Euphony rtirq.conf by default from the top.log with the settings by default the changed rtirq.conf from top.log with the new rt pirority
