  1. Awesome, now there’s even more bottom end using ramroot!
  2. I like Vinnie's table! Do you have a link to it?
  3. Bob, When you purchased a license, did you enter it in the trial software, or did it require a new software install? Funny, I really like it better on my DM2800NT atom board then my NUCS. Oh well! No DSD upsample though. Might have two for sale. 🙂 Jeff
  4. After switching from AL to the Euphony trial, I continue to like the Euphony sound on my headphone system. I have elected to use my 12v Atom DN2800MT motherboard, which only has enough horsepower to upsample Roon/Tidal 44.1K to 352.8K. That is not a problem since I like to keep PCM...PCM. No big deal since the Holo Spring level 3 dac does an amazing job with PCM. I am listening on HD650 headphones via a Bottlehead Crack with mods and NOS tubes. When I tried Euphony after AL, I was struck with the fullness of the sound, the increased bass and the wide, detailed soundstage I experienced in my headphones. With all the benefits of Euphony, I was a little put back by the price. So I wanted to check out other linux audio distros. I tried both Volumio with local files and SnakeOil OS with Roon. IMHO, both have more low end than AL. Volumio's soundstage wasn't as wide as Euphony. SnakeOil OS has less highs and a narrower soundstage. To me, Euphony bested them easily. So this week I am going to do a Euphony vs AL final decision. At this point I continue to be impressed with Euphony.
  5. It would be great if they could put together a special purchase discount for Audiophile Style members!
  6. Got it - thanks. I am using Roon, upsampling to 352.8K, with the DN2800MT board and definitely sounds good. Early on - seems to have much more low frequency energy than my Al/NUC setup. The magic is there...not sure better magic. Time will tell!
  7. Thanks. I can only get to the root of the NAS('s) and not to the actual audio folder - I'll figure it out. I didn't want to mess up my 2 NUC AL setup - so I wrote the Euphony .dmg file to a 32gig MSATA drive, using a MSATA - USB adapter, and put it into my old DN2800MT. So far so good! TY!
  8. Do you know if I can connect the Euphony server to my NAS music folder instead of a USB or internal storage drive?

    I am not able to run any filters (yet) @ DSD512 on the i7 NUC (AL/Roonserver/HQPlayerD). Do you know what the lightest load filter is? My NUC AL/NAA can play DSD512 from my desktop system with 4790k/1080ti. I wonder if I have something mis-configured on the NUC Server... After getting the basic system running - is there some performance tweaking that helps achieve DSD512?

    I am running i7 NUC DNKE and can only get DSD 256 without stutters. Are you running that one or a more powerful NUC?
  12. Well it didn't boot - so I guess I have an answer.
  13. I just got my two NUCS up and running - thank you for all your posts and tutorials. I am able to get DSD 256 with a -2S on my i7NUC DNKE with hyperthreading and speedstep turned off. I was wondering if I can attain DSD 512 with them on? If it is possible, would turning these features on defeat the advantage of 512K. Thanks for your insite - I'll give it a try this weekend.

  15. I have been using my desktop (4790k/1080Ti) as a server and want to switch to the NUC i7DNKE with AL. I would like to run Roon server and HQPlayer Embedded. What can I expect with DSD upsampling - can I still achieve 512k?
