    HQ Player

    +1 for customizing the setting via IP web page like HQplayer embedded !

    HQ Player

    +1, same issue with 4.02 volume control (DSD). OK with Vol Min set to -3dB. ROON > HQP4 > NAA > USB > DAC
  3. So you confirm ROON signal path display (indicating filter and modulator settings) is flawed when Direct SDM enabled and DSD source played ?
  4. Any "quality DC supply" example well suited to AcePC T8 power requirements ? I assume that such power supply should be more expensive than the mini-pc itself, isn't it ?
  5. Hi, I'm satisfied with Amanero Beta FW 1099c using LINUX streamer (ALLO USBridge fed from ROON+HQP) up to DSD256 native. Good reliability and SQ. To test DSD 512 "magic" i've tried using ASIO driver from a WIN 10 NUC. Lot of audible glitches (using 1099c beta FW) ! I presume 1099c is not supporting native DSD from ASIO and i have to reflash Amanero receiver to default T+A firmware version. Could you please confirm ? Question for me is to choose the better option (SQ related): - Lightweight LINUX ALSA streamer with DSD256 limitation => 1099c beta FW OR - More "noisy" WIN ASIO NUC (or other devices like AcePC T8 ) DSD 512 capable (default T+A / Amanero FW) Any opinion, i have to choose "fromage ou dessert" . Thank's.
  6. Sorry, but you have to click on the "arrow on square" on the right to get the posts i've quoted.
  7. Hi @ALLOsupport Again, any news about future DietPi release to fix USBridge related issues ? Seems Dan Knight is no more DietPi "leader', did you talked with @MichaIng, new DietPi leader ? Still ALLO / DietPi working together ? - ALLO Web GUI (DoP option with SqueeeeLite): - USB driver (kernel update):
  8. grep sse4.2 /proc/cpuinfo return empty ! So Duo E6850 too old, sad ... This is a only a test platform to compare HQP / HQPe before to buy , I presume RYZEN 2700 is OK ?
  9. So i've Installed Ubuntu server 18.04 minimal plus your custom kernel 4.14.99, system rebooted. Then according to your site (no CUDA support needed): sudo dpkg -i libgmpris_2.2.1-6_amd64.deb => OK sudo dpkg -i hqplayerd_4.9.0-25_amd64.deb => KO dependency problems sudo apt-get -y install libasound2 libflac8 libgupnp-av-1.0-2 librygel-core-2.6-2 librygel-renderer-2.6-2 libsoup2.4-1 libgomp1 libgee-0.8-2 => KO unmet dependencies sudo apt --fix-broken install ==> seems OK Setting up libgupnp-av-1.0-2 (0.12.10-1) ...

Any workaround or other config steps to perform ? Thank's
  10. OK thank's. I will try from Ubuntu server 18.04. I want HQPe + ROON server (+ Webmin if possible). No CUDA offload needed. So according to your web site last available versions: 1) 18.04 Bionic server minimal (ssh only) 2) libgmpris_2.2.1-6_amd64.deb 3) linux-image-4.14.99-jl+_6_amd64.deb 4) hqplayerd_4.9.0-25_amd64.deb and then Roon server (from install script) Correct ?
  11. Unfortunately my DELL BIOS is old: 2008, no EFI boot option. Any workaround ?
  12. Hi, I've downloaded HQPe bootable image from SIGNALYST web site: hqplayer-embedded-4.9.0-x64.img hqplayer-embedded-4.9.0-x64.img.bmap Then copy to USB Stick using bmaptool: sudo bmaptool copy ./hqplayer-embedded-4.9.0-x64.img /dev/sdg1 When i boot from USB Stick i get: "Missing operating system ..." Any workaround ? BIOS issue (quite old Dell PC) ? Thank's
  13. Thank's @bibo01 Discount coupon only available for HQP Desktop, not embedded version ?
  14. Hi, I'm currently running ROON / HQP Desktop on a NUC I5-6260U WIN10 setup. I'm planning to switch to a new RYZEN 2700 Linux custom build: https://fr.pcpartpicker.com/user/volpone/saved/pd2HhM More computing power to run convolution and filters engine ! Pros and cons about using HQP Embedded vs Desktop version ? Especially interested on Embedded version Web UI to avoid RDP or VNC to manage HQP (headless server in a closet), however HQPe price is higher. I heard about a rebate on HQP Desktop license when buying second license for other OS , confirmation ? Fedora 29 or Ubuntu 18.04 ? Thank's for your insights ...
