  1. Version 712 is released and HQPlayer protocol via StylusEP is working again!
  2. Hi Rajiv, I guess you are using the Squeezebox protocol? Unfortunately the HQPlayer protocol via StylusEP doesn't work anymore with the current version. Therefore I have reverted one of my two Euphony NUCs to version 430. Another support ticket. Poor Željko. 🙂
  3. Hi John, I have attached my USB disk at the Euphony/HQPlayer NUC today. I had to switch to Stylus to mount/attach the USB disk and its music partition. /data/1.42.6-24922/ is the music partition in my case. Then I switched to HQPlayer embedded. In the web interface I typed /data/1.42.6-24922/ as library path and pushed the 'scan' button. The NUC was busy then for the next minutes scanning all the folders. I just listen via HQPlayer embedded standalone without Roon or something else in front. I use the Android app HQPDcontrol. I would have made some pics but I am in a hurry. You also could try Roon together with the Stylus player. Just switch to 'Roon Core + StylusEP' and add the HQPlayer on Roon. Euphony is using the 'HQPlayer protocol' for their Stylus player then. I like this way very much. Mario
  4. Ok, I found out user name and password by trial and error. I will have a further look tomorrow. Bedtime here.
  5. Yes, I am using Roon in front of HQPlayer. I mean I feed HQPe from another Euphony NUC running Roon there. How do you want to feed HQPe with songs? I just opened the web interface. I guess I forgot user name and password. Do you know about them?
  6. Hmm.. no NAA needed here. I just activated my other Euphony NUC and started HQPe there. It does play direct to the DAC. There must be activated "Default output" (instead of NAA) under Output in the HQPlayer settings.
  7. You can chose HQPlayer embedded under Audio systems. Is that not what you want? I also have a HQPlayer 4 Desktop version for my Windows system and a HQPe licence I still have to transfer on my new Euphony NUC.
  8. I received my Musician Pegasus today. My first R2R DAC. Indeed I was about to order a Pontus II but thanks to this thread I decided for the Pegasus. I like its form factor and of course the price point. The Pegasus won't replace my Matrix X-Sabre Pro (MQA). The plan is to use the Pegasus with HQPlayer via USB. Its I2S input works with my Matrix X-SPDIF 2 very well. Afaik they communicate via 'PS Audio mode'. The odd thing is (to me) the USB input gets deactivated when you chose another input so my HQPlayer 4 Desktop was complaining several times after a system boot that it can not find the DAC (the I2S input was active in this case). There is still lots to play around and to listen. I am realizing the overdose of "Chi-Fi" in my gear. 🙂
  9. @audiofool1982 Hmm.. maybe it is even possible with Audiolinux bootet in RAM. Maybe an Audiolinux user can give you support. Or with help of a Linux Live USB drive. I use for such things Ubuntu. Then start the programm GParted and remove all the Audiolinux partitions so the Optane drive is blank. Just found there is a GParted Live for USB drives. Good luck!
  10. Did you make the installation on your hard disk/ssd at all? After updating the registration code Euphony does offer this install option. The hard disk/ssd must be blank. Did you remove the Audiolinux installation before? https://euphony-audio.com/hesk/knowledgebase.php?article=2
  11. Some BIOS support the boot from USB first. When I remember right as long as you don't remove the USB drive the server should boot from USB again.

  12. Željko asked me to share the Playing from RAM in Euphony article. In generally he begs us to check out the whole knowledge base more often. Lot of answers there. 🙂
  13. Nope. You need Roon to do the first unfold.
  14. @Peter Avgeris No need to use the HQPlayer.. just use the HQPlayer 'path' on Roon for StylusEP. A very nice tweak from the Euphony team. About USB interfaces. I was testing Euphony the very first time with a Gigabyte H110N board and an Intel Core i7-7700T one year ago and yes I was that 'blown away' that I purchased a licence. And that even by listening through the native USB ports. (I had the Windows Server 2019 core running on that system before and AO, Fidelizer, Jplay...). However I thought it is a good idea to have a more powerful system (due to HQPlayer) and bought an i7-8700 cpu and an ASRock Z390M-itx/ac board. And the irritations began... The Euphony sound through the native mainboard USB ports didn't blow me away anymore. A Matrix Element H card made the things better but the problem is (imho) Euphony or AL gives realtime priority to the native USB ports by default. Well I went back to Windows Server 2019 (HQPlayer, JPlay, Roon Bridge) again for this Intel/ASRock system and used Euphony (Stylus, Roon Core, StylusEP) on a NUC7I7DNKE in Akasa case for a couple of months. Yesterday my NUC8I7BEH arrived (interestingly enough it gives me a 'Summus' option in the settings. For enabling the 'exclusive features' you have to contact the support.). Well, running Stylus or the Roon Core on the NUC8I7BEH and StylusEP on the NUC7I7DNKE now but for sure I will try the NUC8I7BEH as stand-alone device, too. I like to play/test and like to have the possibilities to play around though it gives me a 'headache' now and then. I was still wondering why the Gigabyte H110N/Intel i7-7700T system gave me such a great sound with Euphony (and even more wondering why I have sold that system!). Though the Gigabyte board doesn't have these DAC-UP USB ports that Jussi (HQPlayer) likes so much. After reading a couple of days ago that Emile from Taiko Audio had a preference for the Intel Core i7-7700K I was confused even more. It seems I already had a very nice sounding system without to know about the possible hardware reasons for. Sorry for my English. Cheers, Mario The NUC overkill: NUC8I7BEH and NUC7I7DNKE (below).
  15. I have done this with help of an Ubuntu Live stick. Ouch, almost one year ago. https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/55916-euphony-os-wstylus-player-setup-and-issues-thread/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-941032 I think @Nenon has found another way of installation.
