  1. Audiolinux to T2 using USB. I have been running AL in ramroot on a NUC for several years as my Roon endpoint. You can click on my sig file link to see how I am configured. Currently I am feeding the T2 via AES/EBU from a Mutec USB but I wanted to see if AL would recognize the T2 using USB directly. If so I am thinking of getting a Denefrips Hermes so that I can feed it I2S. Do you have a Terminator DAC?
  2. Hi, Has anyone here successfully connected Audiolinux with a Denefrips Terminator using a USB connection? If so, what version of AL were you using and did it require any manual configuration? Thanks!
  3. Hi, Anyone own or heard a Soundaware D300 or D300Ref streamer? It is an official Roon Ready endpoint and Vinshine carries it. As it has an Is2 output that is compatible with Denefrips DACs. It also has wclk inputs that accept the outputs from Denefrips DACs. I am looking into it but there does not seem to be much info online except for a very thin review on 6Moons. Any feedback here? Thanks!
  4. I recently purchased and received a Pontus based upon multiple detailed personal accounts like yours. In other reviews people seemed to think that the filter choice which is available with the Pontus II made a noticeable difference in their enjoyment. Perhaps you could now do an add-on piece commenting on what you now hear when trying the two different filters? Thanks.
  5. My M3USB has been running via an LPS for several years. I removed the internal SMPS completely. I then added a 6V LT3045 regulator board inside and wired it to a 7.5V output from one of my HDPlex LPS adjustable outputs. I also added a small electrolytic capacitor to the input of the 6V regulator as a local bypass(think "reservoir").
  6. No problem. Glad to hear that. I would think that the difference in sound quality in one's own system would be dependent on what you had been using to stream. The KEF's do give a lot of bang for the buck. Thanks for the input.
  7. Kef evidently came in just under the wire and their Mark2 is now Roon Ready. I sent mine back to the vendor well ahead of that and have gladly returned to separates. Does any one have feedback on how they sound now that they are a true Roon endpoint?
  8. Well April is here. I realize that April is still 30 days long but I am pretty much done with KEF for encouraging buyers with the Roon Ready "Coming Soon" marketing. I contacted the vendor that I purchased from and they have agreed to take my speakers back with a 10% restock and just $12 for shipping the two heavy speakers and the KEF stands. I am way past the company standard return policy and I would have lost a LOT more money if I tried to sell them. Two reasons prompted my decision. First, the vaporware marketing by KEF. It has been over 6 months since their Roon "C
  9. KEF's UK and HK web pages now say that Roon Ready is coming in April, instead of just saying "Coming Soon". The US page still says "Coming Soon." Family first?
  10. I went to the update menu and chose Roon. When I initiated the update there was an immediate reply that my "audio applications had been updated" but there was no installation that happened. In Roon the version on my NUC shows 1.7 build 571. Is that correct and the most current?
  11. Yesterday I updated all of my devices to Roon 1.8. My Audiolinux endpoint still shows in Roon as being version 1.7 and “Up to Date”. Does anyone know if there a Linux update to 1.8 and if so, should I just go into the Audiolinux menu on the endpoint and manually run the update? Thanks! Paul
  12. Weird. I had to do the opposite of what Roon's last email suggested. I let the updates run on my Core and PC. I then got a prompt to update my IOS app through a link other than the App Store icon on my phone. Seems to work now. My Audiolinux endpoint still shows 1.7 and says that it is current. Is that correct or do I need to go into the endpoint and update manually via the menu?
  13. I am on the East Coast but the IOS app update does not show on my iPhone 11. I went into my desktop Roon app to look at the version and the download started automatically. They did not finish, giving an error. Luckily the 1.7 version still works. I tried going to the Roon Community Forum but I am getting a 503 error. They must be having a bad day?
