  1. Jim, If you can put a monitor on the ST i9 and look at the BIOS at boot up you may find that there is some unused processing power available. You may be able to use ASDM7EC/256 modulation with some BIOS adjustment. I can get ASDM7EC/256 and Closed Form Fast as the filter with my i5 8400 in a passively cooled case similar to what Andrew uses for the ST i9. I don't know what Mother Board Andrew uses so you would have to do some research to see if there is anything you can try. That said, be careful and do not be aggressive. It is possible to go too far and damage the CPU but with modern MBs it i

    Jussi, With the Spotify announcement of CD level streaming later this year, it begs the question of will we be able to connect Spotify to HQP. I used to use Spotify years ago but have not kept up with it since I started using Roon. Maybe Roon will get some integration with Spotify but I won't hold my breath. What about Spotify Connect to link to HQP? I am sure a lot of people will be interested in this scenario. Thanks

    Go into your router and set anything in the chain to fixed (reserved) ip addresses. This is MAC/ip binding. The directions for your router will be online.

    I am always amazed at what he gets done by himself. If he had a lot of help about the only thing that could be improved is the interface which would be a help as it is the thing most people complain about when they first use HQP.
  5. Thanks, I am just curious. You should be able to use most of the easy non-2s filters with that chip and maybe some like sinc S and closed form. I can use closed form fast on my i5 8400. Only do what you have time for. I will be replacing my server and was hoping not to need a GPU. Thanks
  6. Some of the hard ones like Sinc L and Closed Form 16 M. I am curious if a GPU is needed with that chip. Thanks
  7. I would be curious as to which filters you can use and which don’t work with your i9 9900K.

    OK, I think we could move on now!
  9. Very happy to hear that you have it working and that you are happy with it.
  10. Jussi, I would bet that the problem lies with Roon and HQPe running concurrently on SO. They are not sharing resources well. If he runs just HQPe alone from SO and Roon on the laptop and it works that would narrow it down. Give that a try Barrows.
  11. Great! Can you load Roon to your NAS. If so, you can just stay with HQP OS for now.
  12. Try the test with your laptop. If it works then the problem is in SO configuration. If it doesn’t then there is something else going on but we can’t know unless you run the test. If it is SO then you can use Win 10 to run both until the problem can be traced.
  13. Roon core went away because it was part of SO OS. When you booted to HQP OS/HQPe the only thing that can run on HQP OS is HQPe. You will need to run Roon on another machine and tell Roon on that machine where to find HQPe by entering the ip address of the HQPe machine in the add HQP dialog of Roon. You can get the ip from your router. Don't worry about your library right now, just use Tidal or Qobuz for the test. BTW, I can run Roon and HQP Desktop concurrently and get ASDM7EC/256/Closed Form Fast filter using Win 10/64 on a passively cooled machine with a i5 8400 and ASUS Z370I.
  14. Can you run Roon on another machine for the test?
  15. Jussi, Any way that you could remote in to @barrows and fix this? I am wondering if the problem might also be the distro or kernel that SGC has used to build SO. The reason I wonder is that over time some others here have reported problems trying to do 7EC/256 on the i9 machine that SGC sells commercially. Usually those reports were when trying to run Roon concurrently but maybe it is related to this problem. It could also be that the i9 SGC uses on those machines is not a high enough spec but SGC is opaque on which i9 variant they use. This might be a problem worth looking into as something i
  16. Barrows, I am not saying his other stuff isn't good because it is good (I own several SO pieces myself). What I am saying, and keep in mind that this is a public forum, is that I and probably a lot of others following this thread will conclude that on this project he let you down. At the minimum he should have updated your BIOS, configured your BIOS for a high demand app (which HQP at 7EC/256 is) and then checked and configured the HQP Embedded multi-core configuration file for the i9 9900K and then lastly tested it and made any further necessary changes. It is apparent that he ass
  17. You are right in that it should play just fine with those settings. This does not reflect well on SO OS or on Andrew's ability to configure it for your hardware. It is obvious that the multi-core configuration needs to be modified for your hardware. Only you can work with him to get that right. In the interim, if it was me facing this, I would just load Win 10 and HQP Desktop and be done with it. It would only take about an hour. Good luck with it.
  18. Did it work with the Enhanced Multicore setting? If so use it. This a K series chip and you have active cooling so you are probably being more conservative than need be. You could also just load standard Win 10/64 Home and worry about tracking the issue down when you have time.

    Glad to hear you have a solution. Five devices now, guess I am behind the times. Thanks

    Tim at Kitsune thought it was a driver issue in the chain but one that no one is in a hurry to fix as there are only two DACs that will accept 1.536 PCM.

    If you search this thread you will find many posts on this.
  22. I looked up the Enhanced Turbo Mode and that is probably what you need. It just allows the 9900K to operate to its max Intel allowed capabilities. It isn't really overclocking in the sense of going past the manufacturer max allowed. It is similar to what ASUS calls Performance Mode.
  23. I wish I was familiar with your Bios. I agree with the suggestion to HQP OS on a USB stick just to make sure it is not a problem with SO.
  24. I was a JRiver customer in the early days but I got really tired of their "attitude" and switched to Roon and never looked back.
