  1. Very true Larry, I’m a Focal Utopia fanboy myself ?

    Is it necessary to use a 32gb usb stick for AL Desktop or 16gb will be just fine?

    Someone mentioned hearing an uptick in SQ updating to AL 3.0 lxqt, but Piero said he's just trimmed it down and there should be no difference in SQ.
  4. But don't you have to physically punch the "y/n" on the keyboard for entering ramroot? And then click on "Roon bridge", "HQPe" or Squeezelite whatever you're pairing up your server with?

    We need to rope in @Superdad, for his first post here...
  6. I did ask this question to Piero, and the reply was "yes" but please only for you, not for your friends :)" Which meant please don't share it with others, if you get the drift..

    AudioLinux and NUC Troubleshooting and Tuning

    Guys, did any of you’ll use a grounding strap or anti static gloves while fiddling with the NUC? Is it ok to not use either and just make sure you’re touching some metal and not working on a carpet, would that suffice? In the endpoint NUC, would it matter where you install the 4gb ram, upper or lower slot? Is your NUC compatible with a smart TV or do we need to connect a Computer monitor? Larry had concerns about making it work on a regular Home TV.

    Piero Audio-Linux AL3.0

    AL is Good, very nice & Piero support is top notch similar/like Jussi or Alex of Uptone, I feel very comfortable doing business with these guys. I don't know how they do it but Piero & Jussi have the patience of a freakin Saint.
  12. @greenleo I'm confused too, can you please clarify..
  13. This was Piero’s reply when I asked him about the extreme mode.. ”Extreme mode is very... extreme, processor will never go to a sleep state (this will improve latency) but because of this temperature can rise at dangerous levels if the cpu cooler is not of very good quality. I would not use it in a laptop, for example. Sound can be better but if the computer is not up to the task, it could be worse because of cpu throttling down” My MBP is already running hot in Bfq mode. Hence, for the time being I’m holding back..
  14. Would be interesting to know if the Akasa Newton JC chassis indeed makes a difference. Perhaps Larry & Patrick could chime in..
  15. Cool, will Jplay FEMTO work on Audiolinux? I'd be keen to give it a listen, the timing is perfect as I'm trying to ascertain buying a new player SW for Audiolinux.
