  1. Is it here that we say i like the new layout from maybe a week ago, notice fonts and layout changed for better to my eyes... 😀
  2. Eh!! you found another bug... seems to happen at every 8gb around... 8 for me 16 for you... if i remember your movie. but... do you listen to your music sliding the cursor like that... For me you don't need to touch that memory slider when you are not upsampling... Audirvana default leave around 2.5gb for system and the rest is just for loading the songs faster in memory... BUT, when upsampling, things are different... you are not playing bit perfect now... and the computer has to work much differently depending on what you have...
  3. It could if you change your Upsampling settings for each separately , but can't save those for them separately...
  4. If you are on a MAC, try this: If you have Playlists that are important export them first to desktop and save them in a folder… Deleting the database erase them... you can re-import them back in one shot. sadly to this day, the folders they were in if so, are not back, you have to do them again… Go in prefs menu and delete all folders you have if any for your music in there with the minus sign, then Close Audirvana. Apple hide the Home Folder in User Library at some time depending on OS System… When you have clicked your Home Folder, and can
  5. that memory setting is the default one for what you have in your mac... try 1024mb when you are upsampling and see
  6. sent you a private message here... you surely have something flashing on the website...
  7. my picture is because i am not upsampling... move that slider left to 1024 and see and check your message if needed...
  8. speaker icon on bottom right of Audirvana... for your DAC preferences... click the arrow on right of it...
  9. oups didn't see your message before mine...
  10. Mmmm... have you try not upsampling... now, you see, no problem... then close Audirvana. Restart Mac just for fun, restart Audirvana... try putting back upsampling and see... when i used to use upsampling in Audirvana, my memory allocated was always on the low side.... 1024mb (i was upsampling to dsd128) against now with bitperfect playing without problems and memory at regular settings 13,312mb out of mac 16gb.
  11. are you upsampling? Or playing bit perfect? you play files from hard disc or streaming from internet?
  12. just right click them with mouse...
  13. Just to help you without real knowloedge, the best way is to have a remote of your dac that control your amp... if not, you have to set it up in Audirvana (digital way)... Audirvana has a pretty good thing digital control volume that i don't know, or have checked, mine DAC as a remote check OLD .pdf of manual of 3.2.16 of Audirvana, page 40 and see or try yourself... If you don't have it, see that manual here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ealz0ocfy86f6y4/Audirvana Plus 3.2.16 Manual.pdf?dl=0 Hope it helps you...
  14. I think mac mini is good, could be Audirvana, when buying dsd128, no problem, but Converting dsd128 to others format, cannot Answers that, @damien78 could ?
  15. yes, it is call Activity monitor, it is with all Mac, utility folder, you can see memory used, cpu load in real time... Audirvana, when not upsampling, just playing bit perfect flac file or dsd native file for example runs on nothing, if your dac can do what you are playing... if your dac can't proceed DSD256 like mine (max 128), it will play the file to 352pcm... even that, doesn't need much ressources... but taking a 16//44 file to process (upsampling) to dsd128 like with my maximum dac can do, uses my computer mac mini much more ressources... and can skip or hangs so
  16. Tried to find a song at DSD128... to show my mac mini 2012 i5 16gb playing a song... takes around 3 seconds to load into memory, then Audirvana load the second track while playing the first one... Then, Mac Mini is sleeping to the end of the CD almost 95% of the time and doesn't stop for me... So, with your setup and Mac i7, it should be easier then mine... then, what i think, is related to RAID (maybe not ) or the soft you made your DSD128 track with, that is buggy... Here some pictures seen playing the first song of a DSD128 track not done with a software offline...
  17. Now you know that i don’t know RAID like I said 😀 then, have you tried the 3 steps for optimizing your database file? Or delete it and redo it? Trash your prefs files of Audirvana, you should not have trouble playing dsd128 As you said. does this came from The dsd128 done with that software? Have you tried downloading a free exemple of dsd128 to see?
  18. You could try googling raid and 4gb file, you know when you format a usb stick in fat32 you can’t copy large files even if the stick as 16gb... maybe raid the same?
  19. I didn’t remember you from Audirvana site many questions complaints there to answers...
  20. i know some problem people have on PC version (i know you are on a mac) is big file... can't remember, i think 4gb or more... like old Windows thing that can't read more than that in one file... i don't know RAID format, but could it be that? my late 2012 i5 with 16gb of memory is set up at 13 312mb in Audirvana... i have no problem just longer to buff... your i7 should be more relax then mine... your set up look good to me...
  21. The thing with Audirvana, i think, it went too fast after Mac version not perfect yet... to streaming many plateforms, to Windows 10 version... You will all have to wait a bit to see some design updateS... Some for me are pretty easy to update to make it WAY better... Oh, wait, there is also the remote on Mac and PC now Damien is not out of job yet...
  22. If you want less things to worry about, never tell iTunes or Music (now on Catalina) where is your music folder... just use Audirvana 1st method: monitored folder. Tags your files like you want, save your .sqlite library file often, and be free 😀
  23. see post #2209 up there
  24. yes fonts are big in Audirvana
