  1. Indeed, we could go for multivariate analysis (like what Emile did) rather than univariate analysis by focusing on latencies alone https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/taiko-audio-sgm-extreme-the-crème-de-la-crème.27433/page-100#post-616762 https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/30376-a-novel-way-to-massively-improve-the-sq-of-computer-audio-streaming/page/616/?tab=comments#comment-1014096 https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/30376-a-novel-way-to-massively-improve-the-sq-of-computer-audio-streaming/page/697/?tab=comments#comment-1075973

  3. https://www.whatsbestforum.com/threads/taiko-audio-sgm-extreme-the-crème-de-la-crème.27433/page-165#post-640513 OTOH, 4215 should be mighty interesting since it's the only one with both 85W TDP as well as support for Optane DCPMM https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/193389/intel-xeon-silver-4215-processor-11m-cache-2-50-ghz.html If WS C621E SAGE were "willing" to boot with the Engineering Sample flavor while everything is stable overall, it's gonna cost $125 (or less) a pop https://www.ebay.com/itm/Intel-128GB-1Rx4-DCPMM-2666-E

  5. Personally I believe that excluding USB input should be fine. If they're able to incorporate a VERY large buffer inside DAPI, it's so much easier to cut off USB data connection + switch off USB bus power via software https://github.com/mvp/uhubctl IMHO it should bring us even closer to our ultimate goal, namely immunity to the source since we're literally "pulling the plug" in a sense that (almost?) nothing is fed to DAPI until the USB port is turned back on. And then it's also quite similar to the playback of vinyl when we're no longer able to flip through
  6. @Mellowman @Blawre @Kuni @JazzDoc @recepky @Iain are definitely fellow members on this site, @Zauurx @Patatorz were definitely posting on this thread. Actually I mentioned MinorityClean quite a few times already for a specific reason, it's gonna be awesome if the genius author oryaaaaa were able to create a specialized version for optimizing the performance of Asus WS C621E SAGE with dual Xeon Silver. IMHO he's got the potential to become a key person of our upcoming project with LTSC 2019, it's just a matter of how we could convince him to join us here.

  8. Replacing Synology NAS with an affordable fanless mini PC from China while running an audiophile-grade Linux distro certainly made a significant difference https://www.snakeoil-os.net/wiki/Expand/nas https://www.hiendy.com/hififorum/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=136704 Having 3 separate units of RPi4 also did the trick when each task is assigned to its corresponding machine, that combo with the same optimized piCorePlayer even managed to beat the original music server with both JCAT NIC and USB cards https://www.my-hiend.com/vbb/showthread.php?5404-走
  9. If I weren't mistaken, DC4 rails / regulators wouldn't be sold separately while we've gotta play by the rules https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/58164-building-a-diy-music-server/page/44/?tab=comments#comment-1091559
  10. https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/58164-building-a-diy-music-server/page/55/?tab=comments#comment-1100360 The other thread should be more about running Windows on x86 platform, hence it's more appropriate for us to move our discussions about Raspberry Pi / Linux somewhere IMHO. First of all, someone in Japan just gave Audio over Ether a try and let's take a quick look at the feedback below I hope that machine translation would be good enough to interpret everything properly, though most likely we're able to understand what it
  11. OpenHome should be indispensable for that very reason IMHO https://bubblesoftapps.com/bubbleupnpserver2/docs/features_and_requirements.html#openhome_intro Certainly a nice "problem" to have, as long as we're willing to put BubbleUPnP Server somewhere on the network. Other than that, I wonder if spending $35 or so on RPi4 with this optimized version of piCorePlayer for $0 were beneficial for the SQ of BubbleUPnP Server or not? https://audiophilestyle.com/forums/topic/60691-how-is-the-pi-4/page/2/?tab=comments#comment-1102195

  13. That sounds perfect to me, it's gotta be more fun to work on our ears and brains etc. instead of spending so much time on electronics.
  14. @Cebolla any ideas, please? Is it a good idea to try another iOS app by ‎LUMÏN instead of Linn? BTW, not sure if these guys were relevant? https://github.com/FUMR/tidal-async https://no.linkedin.com/in/danielcherubini OAuth 2.0 authentication strategy for TIDAL using Passport.js and Node.js. https://npm.io/package/passport-tidal https://github.com/tidal-engineering/passport-tidal

Announce: UPnPBridge = integrate UPnP/DLNA players with LMS (squeeze2upnp) https://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?103728-Announce-UPnPBridge-integrate-UPnP-DLNA-players-with-LMS-(squeeze2upnp) Attention TIDAL users - changes ahead! https://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?112300-Attention-TIDAL-users-changes-ahead! Not exactly the best combo since we'll have to get LMS running just for the sake of TIDAL with OAuth2, and then I guess that BubbleUPnP Server could create an OpenHome renderer from UPnPBridge but not sure? https://www.bubblesoftap
