  1. Thanks. I bought the tubes from a large dealer, as a recommended package for my amp, and the tubes were tested, and matched. Still you can’t rule out bad tubes. Im going to try some experiments with the gear this weekend.
  2. So, I changed tubes in my jolida fusion preamp recently and started to get a repeating buzz through my speakers, when the music isn’t playing— not sure if it is creating a small amt of noise when music is playing. buzz is in both speakers at roughly one second intervals Mini zen running roon>ultra rendu ( linear power)>gungnir>jolida preamp>Schiit aegir>klipsch heresy 4s the issue occcured when I was using the ultra cap 1.2 to power the ultra rendu, but disappeared when I switched to a sgc linear power supply. Any ideas on cause, could the ultra cap be emitting em signal that the tubes are sensitive to. I’d prefer to use the ultra cap here, all else being equal.
  3. Well, for the time being I’ve fixed this simply by fulliy powering down the rogue Sphinx and turning it back on again. We will see if the condition reappears. What is curious is how hot the qutest got, it is now room temp
  4. Got static from one speaker at low volume. Path is zen min>qutest>Rogue Sphinx. Last time this happened if it was dc offset ( on a different dac). Picking up the qutest I noticed it was fairly warm, is that normal or an indication of some problem (like a dc offset)?
  5. Until this summer, I was using a Mac running Audirvana. I would transfer cds to iTunes and then synch to a network drive. One nice thing was that I could load my iPhone and iPods from iTunes with the tracks that I burned to iTunes. now I’m using innuous zen mini. I burn cds directly into the zen mini as flac files. i want to update my iPod touch with new music that has been already been added to the zen.is there any practical alternative to also burning the cds to the Mac using imusic/ iTunes? Any software that allows me to transfer flac files to the iPod or iPhone? If there is alternative software, would I lose functionality when using the i device In my car?
  6. Thanks. I had to create a new zone for the qutest after plugging in usb. Now I have two zones connected to the qutest. First device is the zen mini which plays optical and coax into the qutest. The second device in roon is the qutest which plays usb from the zen but not optical or coax. I didn’t find this very intuitive.
  7. Not yet, I’m thinking that the zen has usb 3 ports and my cables are usb 2. Is there such a thing as a usb 3 a to b cable that I can test?
  8. I should add optical and coax work fine in this setup
  9. Using a chord qutest and a new innuous zen mini, with roon. The problem is that I’m a getting no sound out when I link the zen and the qutest with usb. The USB ports on the zen seem active because they recognize an attached usb backup drive, and the usb input on the qutest works fine when I hook up a computer by usb. Am I missing something obvious— I’ve tried two different usb cables.
  10. My innuous quickly finds missing album art, but when. I press save, it hangs forever (3-4 minutes). I think it is rescanning. .is there anyway to speed up rescanning or avoid it every time I edit album data? I’ve tried to use the feature where you redo the music files organization but it doesn’t speed up the rescan. is this a reason to subscribe to roon?
  11. I’m just about to switch my music library to a Innuos mkiii mini from a iMac running audirvana. I will connect the innuos directly to one dac and by network to a mrendu and a Urendu. I’m confused by a statement in the innuos manual that when using upnp playback is managed through the network players control interface. Since the sonicorbiter os controlling the rendu doesn’t have capacity to select or search files, does that mean I have to introduce a separate upnp app to control playback? Are there apps out there for this, and could I use some other output mode such as squeeze lite with ipeng Of course Roon is an option.
  12. UpTone thanks for the quick action on replacing my lps 1.2., which is now powering a urendu. The new new unit is running very hot—almost painfully hot to the touch. The urendu is also quite warm after a couple of hours use. ( I’ve set the lps1.2 to 7 btw). Is this to be expected? im wondering if I have a power problem since the Gumby dac powered on the same power strip seems quite a bit warm, more than the slightly warm I’m used to. Any suggestions?
  13. Answers 1 no 2 yes 3 no color is red 4 yes
  14. Just upgraded my server and now neither my ur or my mr work with my lps 1.2 .with the ur , after the lps goes green, the ur flashes green and amber, then red. The lps then goes red or goes dark. With the mr, the lps stays green but there is no activity from the mr. both rendus work fine btw with the sonore 7 lps. Any idea— the 1.2 is set to 7.
  15. So I just upgraded to a new server and switch. I am now having a flashing red light problem on my ultrarendu connected to an ultra cap lps 1.2. I turn on the ultra cap and once the ur is connected and the ultra cap is green, the ur flash’s green and amber for a second and then starts flashing red or doesnt flash at all. anyway my mr using a Sonore power supply, on a downstairs ethenet line works fine and the ur works using the Sonore ps and the downstairs ethernet. The mr won’t work with the lps 1.2 either upstairs or downstairs Is there any explanation other than a ps problem?
