  1. Running 2.0 - RAMROOT OFF - this is my ramroot.conf. Does this look ok? GNU nano 4.5 ramroot.conf #!usr/bin/ash # mounts loaded to zram: mounts_zram='UUID=9913-922E:/boot' # mounts ignored: mounts_null='' # prompt default: ps_default=yes # prompt timout: ps_timeout=8 # minimum MiB free ram: ram_min=750 # minimum MiB free zram: zram_min=250 # preferred MiB free ram: ram_pref=4000 # maximum MiB free ram: zram_max=1000
  2. Whenever I switch to ramroot, I get the same problem, but this doesn't happen with the previous version. I know I have to move the database to ext4, but don't understand why I have to with the new version. For now I will keep the non-ramroot running.
  3. All good. I rebuilt the stick and did everything with ramroot off and all seems to be work now. I'll try the ramroot after I back up this stick.
  4. Funny, I put the one version back stick back in and booted and I don't get the disk full problems: NAME FSTYPE LABEL UUID MOUNTPOINT FSSIZE FSAVAIL │ │ sda │ │ ├─sda1 vfat 09EC-B22A /boot 487M 439M │ │ └─sda2 ext4 02794dbc-93da-4c23-a03a-315c051dedbd │ │ zram0 / 11.6G 3.6G
  5. OK good - so I have to get the roon database over to ext4, I assume. I see your instructions on your website. Is there an option to do this in the roon installer?
  6. The only one that is questionable is: NAME FSTYPE LABEL UUID MOUNTPOINT │ │ FSSIZE FSAVAIL │ │ sda │ │ ├─sda1 vfat 73D0-F3F1 │ │ └─sda2 ext4 audiolinux 76770e44-3602-4a3b-9b7c-485109c5ac7a /run/media/audiolinux/audiolinux │ │ 27.6G 20.9G │ │ zram0 / │ │ 6.7G 0 I have another linux box that I run gparted on and extend ext4.
  7. Looking for a little help. I am trying to get 2.0 running. I have a two NUC system - one with Roon and HQPlayer Embedded and the other running NAA.. The previous version (1.x) worked fine. I downloaded the newest files, updated menu, updated all software. All connections are running. I see the both audio services running on the "master" NUC. After about a minute they both disappear from the Show audio services menu. Blank menu no text on it. And of course, the Roon control application blanks out. I hope this is something simple - any ideas? TY! Jeff
  8. Awesome, now there’s even more bottom end using ramroot!
  9. I like Vinnie's table! Do you have a link to it?
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. It would be great if they could put together a special purchase discount for Audiophile Style members!
  13. 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!
  14. 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!
