  1. You may have not found the official Qobuz issues thread here :
  2. You can grab some here in Paris : there is an IKEA shop in the city center (direct subway line from my home !!!! ) I use this one upside down with rubber feet under it : https://www.ikea.com/fr/fr/p/laemplig-planche-a-decouper-00394380/
  3. I was a bit more extreme : on my Mac Mini I disconnected the wifi and bluetooth antennas and stopped all sharing services either file or screen sharing
  4. I'm using the SPS-500 it works perfectly well for both my sms-200 and my tX-USBhub with a Y DC cable from ghent audio I'm also using a Furutech AC cable to power the SPS-500
  5. Audiophile, Guitarophile, newest noob guitar player, Concertophile, 24/7 listener and music lover (my neighbors are probably the coolest in town...)

  6. Many thanks for asking and giving this feedback on May's answer. At least, we can count on one of the few audiophile certainty : it actually does not matter ! 😎
  7. Before ? Is it better ? As far as I picture linux modules work the system might be less stable if you do it before ? Perhaps I don't really get how it works...
  8. I had the same issue, a bit less annoying because it occurred more rarely. After the OS upgrade, try a kernel upgrade. The last kernel version seems to be 4.18.19-215.fc27.armv7hl
  9. It sounds good, a very nice present from SOtM to make time fly faster during pandemics...
  10. I use LPS on my mikrotik switches, ZeroZone or Teradak, or other simple LPS from chineuse merchants are doing the trick really well. The SQ is always improved : more details, less noise, more refined,... I tested the LPS use on a friend's internet provider fiber modem, it made a lot of difference, clearly audible (Orange LiveBox). Since then, this friend made his own LPS, from parts from French shop https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/ you could do the same and order your own transformer and linear components circuit there. The case can be made of some wood without any major difficu
  11. I've been using a very similar setup to your last model : Mac Mini => Mikrotik RB260GSP => Mikrotik fiber => Mikrotik RB260GSP => Cat6A copper => SOtM SMS-200 => SOtM tX-USBHub => DAC Each of these devices are plugged to LPS. The Cat6A copper is a deliberate choice : the one sounding best. On the 2nd Mikrotik switch the Sotm is the only device plugged in ethernet. I wouldn't comment on the sound because the DAC and amp and speakers are doing a lot after this chain of devices. All I can say is this is the best SQ I've managed to get, and I like
  12. Yes, I works very well, and SQ is really improved
  13. The update is launched and monitored by the web service, so it depends on your web browser and Safari is only available on MacOS, system that usually runs on Apple PCs.
  14. I had no problem upgrading to 0.4.6 in Safari on MacOS, perhaps you should buy a macbook ?
  15. Well the 100 base T setting has some issues, I wouldn't recommend it, it caused me some concerns although sound quality was better with it. I don't think it is ready yet for a stable use. Then this setting is only for ethernet cable connections, nothing to do with wifi. So if you use Wifi it'll be fine and you won't depend on this issue. Here on the forum there one person from SOtM May, you'll find her in the user lists. I think SOtM is already aware of this issue.
