  1. You are going to have to hack the inf file or buy a separate NIC that has Server drivers (like I did). Check out this link for example. https://blog.workinghardinit.work/2017/06/19/installing-intel-i211-i217v-i218v-i219v-drivers-windows-server-2016-eufi-boot/
  2. On my i7-6700 playing redbook, I noticed CPU utilization went down a bit when I unchecked the Multicore DSP option.
  3. Definitely! My passively cooled cpu is hitting about 150F!! My next build will be using one of those massive Noctua NH-D15 cooling fans.
  4. Thank you for letting me know the i7-9700k will do the job. I am now re-thinking the RTX2080 though. I am only doing 2 channel convolution so I am wondering if I can get away with a less powerful GPU. I dont have any experience with GPUs so any input would be greatly appreciated.
  5. I finally got around to upgrading to HQP4 today. I have an i7-6700 (not K) and I also use HQP for 2 channel convolution. After some fiddling around, I determined that the 6700 can only do DSD128 and poly-sinc-ext2 using the new ASDM5/7EC modulator. Even after listening for only a few songs I have to say the hype surrounding these new EC modulators is justified! Needless to say I am going to have to accelerate my plans to upgrade my audio pc to something more powerful. I am thinking an i7-9700K + RTX2080 should do that trick. Whats interesting is that the cpu utilization varies from 1% to 99%. The cpu utilization graph has a very consistent sawtooth pattern with alternating peaks and valleys.
  6. Thank you for the reply. I am comfortable with Raid 5 since I will have 2 separate backups of the Qnap nas.
  7. Hi guys, I am finally making the upgrade from an old Thecus to a QNAP nas. When setting up the QNAP I am able to create static, thick, or thin volumes. While I understand the differences conceptually, I am not sure which would be best in my situation. This nas will be used in my home primarily as storage for my music, photos, movies, etc. I am the only one that regularly streams music from it. My intention is to set it up as a RAID 5. In my case (single user, mainly music streaming) wouldn't a static volume make the most sense? I am not interested in using the QNAP snapshot feature since I will be backing up this nas with another nas. Any advice would be appreciated.
  8. Wow thats big praise! Curious if either of you can try to describe in what ways USB is superior to i2s with the Terminator.

    Is anyone having trouble applying the discount code when upgrading to version 4? I got the code from the Signalyst website after uploading my license key but when I apply it at checkout I get an error. @Miska I sent you an email to info at signalyst dot com.
  10. What about the Gamut Lobster chair? http://www.gamutaudio.com/the-gamut-hi-fi-lobster-chair/

    After messing around with the buffer settings in my Singxer USB control panel, I notice that when I set the buffer settings to 32,768 samples and play music at DSD512, the latency information shown by the control panel says that the input latency is approx 50ms (~1 million samples). Is 50ms in the audible range?

    Thank you...I just checked an my ASIO USB driver buffer setting maxes out at 32,768 samples. Since I am converting to DSD512, that is no where near the 100ms buffer setting you suggest. Should I instead use the HQP buffer settings instead? If I do use the HQP buffer settings what should I set the ASIO buffer to or does it matter since the HQP buffer setting will override anyway?

    Ok so if I am understanding correctly I should leave buffer as default in HQP but adjust the buffer setting in my USB driver control panel that is running on my NAA pc?

    This is a fascinating comment. I thought it was best to keep the buffer as small as possible. But what you are saying is that we need to actually increase the buffer to at least 100ms???
